I am a completely newbie to the world of system building. My need is a decently powerful system capable to handle data manipulation and calculation (SAS). Also I would like to play some new game (no FPS), not with particularly high fps and resolution (<=1680*1050) need. Someone suggests me to eliminate the hassle: buy a integrated graphic card dell system and an individual graphic card to build.
I don't know whether it is reasonable.
The dell system is :
Intel® Core™2 Duo E7500 (2,93 GHz, 1.066 MHz, 3 MB)
4096MB Dual Channel DDR3 [4x1024] Memory
750GB (7200rpm) SATA Hard Drive
Geïntegreerde Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X4500
you say you need a decently powerful system and game lightly,
This to me suggests a homebuild over a pre-build anyday, especially at a budget
The 5770 is a decent performer at budget (I run them in 2 systems at home) so keep that imo
look at the top thread on this section, theres a link for asking about new build advice, fill one in and we'll get you in the right direction, but we need more info from you first

I dunno 'bout comp prices in Europe, but where I'm at, pre builds are not even an option.
Nobody buys C2D's for a ground up new system anymore. You can get a much better system for the same price. I'm giving you Newegg links, 'coz I couldn't really navigate on the dutch site, so just find these products on your site & you're good to go.
Yeah thats where you are wrong, 600 euro = 500-600 USD. Parts are more expensive here even if the dollar is doing bad.
Robbie, Go to Hardware.info ( Nederlandse Website ) make an account and add the products you need to your wishlist, after that go to your wishlist and the site will show you which website has all your components and how much it costs. I would suggest azerty.nl. Has great service and they deliver free to the Netherlands.
I tried copying your configuration and then have this set up.
AMD Athlon II X3 445
OCZ Fatal1ty 550W
Asus M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3
Western Digital WD10EALS
Corsair 4 GB DDR3-1600 Kit
If you are building from scratch, keep the 5770 that you originally linked. Down grade the CPU to the 440 to save some money. Get a 500 GB HDD if you're not in desperate need of storage. Get a CL7 RAM kit from Corsair, G.skill, Kingston, OCZ etc - Should cost 'bout the same as CL8/9.
Also, if you're not looking to OC or XFire you can save a bit on the Mobo. I'd still advise you to stick to USB 3.0. Avoid SATA 6GB/s if you have to. Go with a 870 chipset board may be. That should cost you a bit less.
Every thing's fine. Just a minor adjustment - Change your Corsair RAM to a "CL7" kit. The one you have is only CL9. The performance is a little bit better, but the price will be about the same (only 5/6 bucks extra). Not important, just something I noticed. Other than that, looks like you're good to go
^Damn, thats another 5770
I agree €45 is a good deal for assembly, if you get an ocd guy putting it together you'll get good Cable management thrown in hehe
Good luck and let us know how you get on man,
lets have some pics
you can use one fan and it will be quieter but you wont get as good cooling as possible, it might be small fans,or a loose bearing causing the noise, get a picor two up and well take a look, see what we can come up with
