These are the part that i have that i need to use so keep these in mind

Cpu-9850 be
Ram 8gb ddr800 wintec
Cooler-Corsair h50 with a 500rmp fan
Mobo full atx biostar crossfire ready
1tb 3.5 hdd
1 dvd drive

So far i have found these fans the reviews say that they move enough air and they are very very quiet. What this computer is going to be used for is homework and very simple tasks. I am using my old componets to build this since my good computer is in my sig.

here are the fans i found-

I am trying to go for a no led silent build so i can leave this on 24/7 and not hear it since i sleep in the same room and i do have very good hearing. My 800d build makes me want to cry its to loud lol but thats how it is there.

This is the case that i am looking at i will remove the back fan and replace it with the 500rmp one same with the front.

case-thermaltake v3

I want a 430-500 watt psu that is silent from the review i see they reccomend the corsair 430watt pro is this the best choice?

psu-corsair 430--- its also 20$ after MIR

My price limit for the items other then gpu is 100$ and under.

If you want a silent PC, you can get a fanless PSU (see below) and that will help a lot:

The V3 is a good case, it is fairly quiet, but the 120mm case fan it comes with is bright and not particularly quiet.

You might want to consider different fans such as these:

You may alos want to reconsider your case. The Fractal Design R3 is designed to be VERY quiet:

All of these things add costs. Up to you to balance how much $$$/noise you can live with. Good luck!
