Additional Comments: I'm trying to build a computer to handle my various hobbies. I want it to be reasonably powerful, but also really quiet. Because I want to do Audio work on this, I want this system to be reasonably quiet. I'd rather keep it within the 1000-1200 range, but I can stretch my budget pretty well.
Selected Parts. Not really committed to these parts, but it's about the kind of power I'm looking for.
This looks pretty good. I might swap out the PSU with something quieter (do I really need 850w? I don't know of many computers that need anything higher than 600w), and maybe add in an aftermarket cooler. Thanks, this is great.
