Will you be using Windows or Linux? That would determine whether you should go with AMD or NVIDIA graphics. Another thing, any preferences as to form factor? Define lots of storage. How many drives would you need?

Fire away fellow nerds! (Except PhilWrir since he's offended)

Case: (~$60.) Silverstone Milo ML03 (newegg.com)
APU: (~$120) AMD A6-3650 Llano 2.6GHz (newegg.com)
Motherboard: (~$80.) ASRock A75M FM1 AMD A75 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard (newegg.com)
Powersupply: (~$45.) Antec EarthWatts 380W -need to watch length dimensions (newegg.com)
Memory: (~$55.) G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 CAS 7 (newegg.com)
SSD: (~$115) Crucial M4 2.5 64GB (newegg.com)
HDD: (~$60.) Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive (newegg.com)
Optical: (~$60.) SAMSUNG Black 12X BD-ROM SH-B123L (newegg.com)

Total: $595


For an extra $20 you can get the A8-3850 which is probably worth it... There are also some 65W llanos suppose to be coming out soon (next couple of months) so if you can wait and go for one of those to get the power down some more.

I just built one last month close to the specs posted ^, but didn't have an SSD.

I would suggest Sandybridge Pentium G850 $80~90 & an nvidia GT430 combo instead of AMD

But its upto you.
