Default Looking for a $700-800 Build

Hey guys,

I'm currently looking for a $700-800 build including the OS. I would prefer a INTEL CPU and a SSD? I can upgrade to a bigger HDD later! I won't be doing to much gaming... I can live with a Radeon HD 7750 or even Integrated graphics temporarily! I just need something to boot fast, run my work processes fast! I would like to have a i5! Sorry if i'm asking to much..

Thanks in advance!

What "work processes" do you need to run fast? Connectivity an issue?

Oh nothing really like demanding... I might start a bit of editing though!

If editing, you may want to bump your CPU up to at least a 4770.

Need to know your uses. Basic office programs or demanding editing etc? Will you overclock or run stock? Single screen, or multiple?
