Hi guys!

I need help building a desktop! I want to go with dual monitor set-up, just want a nice pc so i don't need to update and since i will be travelling to USA soon, i can buy the parts there!
I don't game, so the monitor and graphics r only for movies!
Need some feedback on the parts!
Any help is appreciated! Not sure about the cooling system i should get, cables

Umm for movies? An AthlonX4+integrated mobo would be fine.

You actually have a decent gaming system build there. :-)

Your psu is way too much. You'd be fine with a quality 450w psu. You don't need the h50 if you arn't going to be overclocking, and if your just using this for movies theres no reason to overclock at all. Which brings us to your cpu. Do you really need a quad core processor to play movies? In fact any processor on the market is completely capable of playing full hd movies.
