I've been tasked with building a rig for my office and I'd appreciate some suggestions. I know exactly what I want when it comes to performance rigs but I'm not sure whats best in the realm of cheap components.

Here's some general guidlines:

-Low cost (no particular budget but the cheaper the better)
-Small footprint so matx preferred form factor ( i like the idea of those horizontal cases that I could put the monitor on)
-Used for basic office tasks (email, MS office, Internet, etc.)
-SSD if possible (don't require much space, 128gb would be nice 60gb will suffice)
-I'm partial to Gigabyte motherboards
-needs wi-fi card
-don't need optical drive

What I need:
case
PSU
CPU (with igpu)
ram
mobo
Hard drive (ssd preferred)
wi-fi card

I do have a microcenter near by if that helps.

I'm not a fan of mail in rebates.

Thanks for any help!
