Budget: £800

Purposes:

Most important: Silence
Second: HD Video
Third: Light gaming
Fourth: Office work

The build:

Case: Fractal Design Artic R3
DVD RW: Sony Optiarc
HDD: OCZ Vertex 2E 60GB
GPU: ASUS GTX 460 768MB
CPU: AMD 555 (will hopefully unlock)
MB: Gigabyte GA-880M UD2H 880G
Monitor: Dell U2311H
RAM: Corsair XMS3
PSU: BeQuiet Straight Power 450w
Cooler: Immo3d iChill

I know I should really save money on everything else and go for a better cpu/mb combo but I thought that everything else would last me a really long time 3-5 years hopefully and if I really need a cpu upgrade then I could wait for Ivy Bridge or something even later. I don't need processor power but I do want the quietness offered by the case, the snappynes of an ssd and the picture quality of the dell.

What do you think?

Am I better off saving £100 on the monitor, is the Dell overrated?
How good is the PSU?
How good is the cooler?
