  1. What's your budget? Also, do you need a case?

    The sound card probably isn't needed; most motherboards have pretty good to excellent onboard sound these days. The PSU might be a bit suspect; I can't find any reviews for it (unless it's the Thermaltake EVO, but that's a 750W).

    Depending on your budget, I'd consider going with a newer socket interface. The LGA775 socket is the previous Intel generation, and the current generation (LGA1156/1366) is going to be replaced within a few months by the new Sandy Bridge socket interface. If you do decide to stick with the LGA775, I'd consider getting a bigger motherboard since the one you picked is a microATX, which means it has fewer features ans is more crowded.
  2. thank you for your reply coleam45, i have changed up and now im contemplating hitting the purchess key on this build. it comes with case for 1200 euros, about 200 more than i wanted to spend, but if it does what i want then im happy.

  3. The first build was terrible . Two year old bargain bin parts.

    The new build is better but just saying " a 500 gb hard drive" means you could be getting a slow quiet model or a fast and slightly noisier model

    You are better to ask in the format suggested in
