    I have recently joined this site and would like to say hello.
    Approaching middle age and starting a new voyage of discovery. I want to learn and to be eventually able to help.
    At the moment I have one big question to anyone who can help with advice and guidance.
    I am looking to purchase a new desktop/tower set-up with a possible NAS storage solution.

    My personal requirements:
    Windows OS. (but I hope to go the Linux route in the future) - No Apples here, please.
    Currently Windows 7.
    Non-gaming set-up, sorry if this offends.
    Mainly for, Archiving, Music, Films, Photos and TV. compulsory Journal keeping.
    Streaming & P2P - Storing exclusively Flac/@320 & HD & CD quality.

    SSD ram for OS placement.
    Required CPU's, Graphic & Video cards.
    Also 2/3 TB or more of internal memory storage.
    Best Monitor, keyboard and mouse.
    Good NAS set-up
    and anything else I have probably missed...

    I have a paid VPN rolling contract and lots of time.
    I understand that to make a future proof system set-up is almost impossible but it does need to be ready for future upgrades.
    If going the self-build route, then I will need a complete guide to make the system work.
    Or is there one particular manufacturer that would be suitable and/or ones to avoid at all costs.

    I have as they say 'googled' but still very confused and unable to make a definitive decision.
    My budget is between £1,500 - £1,750

    Thank you for taking the time to read, and I would very much appreciate any help or words of wisdom.
