So ive never built a pc before but I've been looking forward to it for quite sometime. All info shud be in following, any help is appreciated thank you so much!


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Approximate Purchase Date: August 2011

Budget Range: (0-1200) After rebates etc.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, 3D modeling in AutoCad, photoshop, streaming movies to my tv, internet, music)

Parts Not Required: (keyboard/mouse/)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg or amazon, whatevers cheapest

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: Intel for CPU and nvidia for graphics card

Overclocking: Maybe, probably not tho

SLI or Crossfire: probably not

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 (23 in moniter)

Additional Comments: want it to run quiet and cool, autocad and gaming are of equal import to me. autocad is more for my personal use, I may go to grad school for it but really I just want it to mess with. Could use a good suggestion for a case/power supply and let me know if any of these parts I have already picked out are overkill/unnecessary, I'd love to save money if possible. Also a good moniter suggestion around 23inch wud be nice. Appreciate the help so much!

Monitor ... Is the response time a little slow? I have the samsung BX2450 and it has a 2ms latency. I don't game much but when I do the picture is smooth and lag free!

Power Supply

Either this one (Cheaper and non-modular) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096

Or this one (Better and modular{slightly quieter too) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151088

You'll be safe with any Seasonic PSU over about 550 Watts

For the Case ... I have a Lian Li which is very quiet ... And I didn't even buy it as a "silent computer case"
