I see Newegg deals weekly and never know what to get. Today I see several deals surrounding SSD and a few Motherboards and processors. Here is the challenge, "if i wanted to pull the trigger today, what would you suggest for a budget of $300". I would not be opposed to using Refurbished PC or Parts, maybe swaping out processors or drives, something like that to save money. HDMI is required and the TV/Monitor/AVR /Speakers not part of the budget. I would like it to be as fast as possible for surfing and with as much storage as the budget would support. Windows 7 or 8 as an operating system and using WMC unless there is a better choice. Please let me know what I am missing. If I need to do it in two steps, I would add the TVTuner Card later. Gaming is not a requirement.
Thanks in advance for your input.
