Default Need build advice asap for fast internet <1000

I need some help fairly fast. My PC died a month back and now my laptop has a virus so i'm in need of a reliable fast pc for mainly internet downloading and speed for daily tasks. I don't really game any more so i was thinking of going with a good motherboard with good online video and sound. I basically want best bang for the buck, but i want fast because i don't want to upgrade for another 4 or so years. I need windows 7. I guess i should follow the site format for builds.

I'll be buying in Canada, i'm in BC, newegg.ca is fine or ncix

Used for mainly internet and downloading, music,

I will overclock it a little also.

I was thinking of throwing the operating system on a ssd 64g drive and then using my existing seagate baracuda 160g for now for backup.

I basically need a complete build, but in a pinch i could reuse my coolermaster praetorian case.

If i can get a good combo deal on a monitor, 23" or so around $200 but combined shipping i'd do that too. So all said if i could keep it below $1200 i would be happy, but $1000 would be better.

If someone could offer up suggestions for a complete build that is fast. Sorry if this seems jumbled. I had to borrow my parents computer to post this. Thanks

giga board + dually 250 if 240 not in stock. around 150 for both your choice of ddr2-3 4 gigs.100 bucks.
video card...hmm...go with onboard for now. but if you want 'eye candy' in 1080p movies better get something in the gt 220 or ati series 5 lower end.
good psu. if no gaming a 400 watter will do. corsair? :)
