Need someone to build me a system!

Hello!
After hearing that AC Unity becomes a next gen exclusive, I decided to make a gaming pc (I'm a big fan of the assassins creed saga but I played all the games on an ps3 and my 4 year old pentium laptop isn't going to run it)
I have an old pc that I can use for parts.
Specs:
Intel Celeron E3400 crappy cpu
2 gb ram 800 mhz ram
Seagate barracuda 500 gb 7200 rpm
AsRock G41C-S motherboard
Tps 430 watt
Old Envy case
Samsung dvd drive
And a Samsung syncmaster monitor + logitech Keyboard and Thrust mouse.
I can get 100 euro for the old pc if the parts are useless.
My budget is 550-600 euro but it can be slightly increased. I want order the parts from this site: hardwareversand.de

Thanks!
Dylias

EDIT: I already have the os (windows 7 64 bit)
And I play at 1080p

  1. Do the €100 for the old parts contribute to the budget of €550/600 or are they already part of it?
  2. It's 700 if no parts from the old pc are used and 600 if parts are used
  3. Best answer
    Sell the old parts.What you can use is imo not worth the difference of €100.

    I would look at something like the next,

  4. Thanks! I will order this build soon, but I've got 1 more question, can I use a non modular psu and just hide the cables behind the motherboard?
  5. The psu used in the build is non modular and with a bit of time and effort should you be able to route cables behind the motherboard,a modular psu would make things easier.

    A review about the case ,

    Another nice case but more "flashy",
    http://de.pcpartpicker.com/part/zalman-case-z11plus
    got some blue led fans in it.Maybe read some reviews about that one too.It pushes you about €2 over budget.
  6. Wow the z11 plus case looks good (It makes my pc look like a beast lol), I've read some reviews of it and looked at the prices but the z11 plus is more expensive than the z11 (10 euro) but I can't find the difference in the descriptions, same design, fans, etc.
    Do you know the difference?
    Thanks for all the answers btw!
  7. The difference from what i can tell between the z11 and the z11+ is that the last one has one extra 120mm blue led fan in the top and usb 3.0x2at the front i/o panel.
    The usb 3.0 are those that connect to the rear i/o panel via a pass through cable afaik.

    It's up to you to see if those differences are worth the difference in price.
