COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Finland
PARTS PREFERENCES: Mainly looking for an i5/p55 platform. Was checking out i7 but the added costs and questionable benefits turned me off of it) would like a full tower case with dustfilters and preferably a removable motherboard tray. I know, I am asking a lot.)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: No need for bling, looking for silence and quality. In it for the long run. Realizing that you can't really futureproof anything so I am looking for a solid build that i can stretch out and a good case/psu that I can use in later builds (plural) when I will inevitably have to switch out the motherboard and processor.
Here is what I've got so far, please give suggestions for getting the cost down while maintaining the quality. Also, if anything seems unbalanced (bottlenecked, overkill, unsuitable etc) please suggest replacements. Thank you in advance everyone,
