Additional Comments: This is my first time searching for this type of a build so i don't know which cases are good. I have 5.1 Bose surround sound speaker set, what would i have to do to set it up to my build. I'm thinking of going with a i3 2100 and a 5770 does this sound good? Thanks for your replies
look at an e-350 board/cpu combo, 2GB of decent ram and a qwality (you could step up the performance a notch going to a WD Black or Samsung F3 drive, but it'll be a smigeon(sic?) louder) . This will be quiet enough for you-so the case will be mainly to your preference.
