Now that Black Friday is here, I've decided on a parts list, but I have a challenge for the expert builders out there. I'm also gonna make a list, but I want to take this as an opportunity to learn for future builds.

The challenge is to create the best possible Micro-ATX PC that has the best price to performance ratio. It has to be able to handle video editing and gaming in a 50/50 split. It also has to maintain pretty good temps, and look pretty cool too. It also has to have some sort of WIFI capability for those mobile content creators, it can be a USB Dongle, a PCI Card, or the board itself can be Wireless enabled.

Location: This is just a challenge so pretend it's in your own town. Use: 50% Gaming and 50% Productivity - Video Editing Budget: Whatever you think gets most price - to - performance
