@Shifthawke I don't quite understand the question.
But if I am to build a PC I want a few specific things. (I'll list Quality of Life, and not required pieces with an asterisk)
USB3.0 In front (Really only 1)
USB3.0 In back (Typically two. This isn't hard to get.
GPU with at least 3GB RAM (3GB is a low amount for now-a-day video cards) and at least 3 display ports.
CPU with integrated Graphics (All new CPUs** have these)
Mobo with at least 2 PCI-e 2.0 slots (This 'future proofs' your computer by allowing an additional video card later on) [I don't consider this required if you get a good video card, you'll be set for 3-4 years easy.)
PCI-e Wireless Card (If you use wireless. I don't in my desktops, but if you must, a dedicated card will drain less power from your CPU, use it's own heat and handle better)
Modular PSU (This is what we talked about before)
At least 6 TOTAL USB ports on the back. (If you're going to use a HUB, 2 is fine)
Mobo with Bluetooth* (Not required, at all. Most have it anyway though)
Decent onboard sound card. More do (6 'colored' ports, and a Digital Optical Port. I'm a bit of an audiophile, so if you need extra info, let me know.)
A CPU Cooler (You do NOT need hydro-cooling, at all.) I 100% recommend http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Hyper-212-RR-212E-20PK-R2/dp/B005O65JXI/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1444766035&sr=1-1&keywords=CPU+Cooler it's extremely cheap, and with a push-pull system on it, it has insanely good air flow, and helps keep your HDD/SSD cooler as well [A lot of newer cases that use ATX boards have the PSU on bottom, and HDD Bay up top)
TL;DR I'm probably forgetting some details but yea.
