I'm looking for a quality, yet cheap, small form factor build for simple browsing purposes with some light to medium multimedia (movies/streaming/photos). I'm pretty sure I won't need a dedicated audio/video card and from what I read, most on board chips are fairly good these days. I have no budget but, again, this is mostly for browsing purposes so I really don't plan on spending an incredible amount.

Specific things I'd like in this build are: - 500gb ssd (I have a 1tb external for mass storage) - A decent monitor ~25" (was looking at the Dell u2515h possibly) - Optical drive (cd/dvd) - Wireless keyboard/mouse

Things I don't need: - OS - Video card - Audio card

I'm located in the US
