This is a computer designed to be a High Performance Digital Audio Workstation but would also function flawlessly as a gaming powerhouse.

HD 1 - 64GB Crucial SATA3 SSD
HD 2 - 1TB |Western Digital HDD with 64MB cache
DVD - LG DVD-R/W
Mobo - Intel P67 LGA1155 motherboard with a Texas Instruments firewire port (HIGH AUDIO PERFORMANCE!), +WIFI and Bluetooth
CPU - Intel i7 2600 3.40 GHz, 4 cores, 8 threads (it can be overclocked to 4.0GHz without any issues)
GPU - ZOTAC nVidia GT-430 (FANLESS)
RAM - 8GB (2x4GB) Mushkin DDR3 PC3-12800 7-8-7-24 (Carefully chosen low latency RAM to improve audio performance)
PSU - Seasonic 400W (FANLESS!) - Efficiency >90%!
CASE - Cooler Master Sniper
Cooler - Zalman passive frame plus 3 extra fans.
Connections - 2 USB 3.0 ports, 6+2 USB 2.0, 2 e-SATA, 2 Firewire 600, 6.1 audio + SPDIF, Headphone Out, Mic In.
Bluetooth, Wifi receiver.

The case has 2 HUGE (above 12 inch) Fans, for which fan speed can be adjusted on the front panel.
The additional three fans installed in the case are only installed to improve ventilation.
Processor heat does not go over 47 degrees C while operating silently.
Lighting can be turned on and off on the case.

This could take 3ms roundtip latency via firewire at 96KHz sampling rate, with full audio projects.
Mass Effect 2 can be played on the highest graphics setting at full HD resolution without a glitch.

I assembled this computer a couple of months ago to have a futureproof audio computer.
Has only been used once or twice a week. Condition is absolutely mint.

775 shipped, paypal'd in the continental US.

I doubt you could build a silent design for 750-800, not even out of used parts. Reasonable offers would be considered, though!

Halodude, please read before comment. I wrote future-proof audio computer.
The components you mention are both FANLESS. The PSU's efficiency is >90%.
AFAIK high-end GFX cards use external power anyways, so I don't really get your point.

As I mentioned, this computer has been built for audio, yet it still can deliver some pretty solid gaming performance.

A GFX card is a component you can replace anytime you feel unsatisfied.

Just my 2 cents.
