I am looking for recommendations on building a computer. I don't need it to be fancy as I just want it to:
1. Rip Blu-Rays and play them from a library. I would like the capability of 3D as well.
2. Ability to play Battlefield 3

I do want 1080p and 7.1. Audio and Video will be running through my HDMI input on my Denon.

My Newegg shopping cart atm is around $800. Or could I buy a PC from like Best Buy for cheaper and make some upgrades?

Jack Fraggs steam box:

substitute dvd rom with a Bluray drive

The motherboard choice is cheap but won't allow overclocking the cpu.
The cpu $$$ sweetspot is an i5 3570K (with suitable mATX motherboard)
and would be about the most processing power for a $800 build.
