So lets be clear...no gaming. this will be used for web surfing adn watching movies. Blu-Ray movies?

Do have a space limitation at all? I ask because you can get a SFF (small form factor) case or something larger. The IDE drives you have will be useless in a build now. Everything is SATA.

Before getting into this too deep I suggest you look at this web site and read about the products they make. I've never used them but they get good feedback and they make units for exactly what you are doing: http://assassinhtpc.com/

If you decide to build yourself you will not use a graphic card...you'll use the one built into the mobo. You won't need more than 4gb of ram and the processor you can use varies significantly. You will need the OS and a good Hdd.

will you be storing movies on the box or mostly playing them? this is important to determine the storage needs. Visit the Assassin web site and then post questions here>

I personally like a stand alone card and Intel, so I built something within price range including those parts. As the above poster said, IDE is virtually dead, I looked for IDE in alot of the boards on that website and I could not find one, so I added a 500gb HD.

You cannot OC the build below.

EDIT: Just noticed all my links, link back to the main page, did not notice I had to copy the link from the bottom of the web page itself :(

it will be used as an normal hose pc more as an htpc there is no need for high end gaming but old games will be played it need at least a tb i thought abbot the Samsung 1tb f3 i have it but now the prices are high as hell.
I thought abbot a low end card I don’t think he will be playing blue ray movies so only a dvd drive is needed and that he has but maybe a new one will be good.
I what a normal micro atx case but it can be bigger I am thinking abbot the ‎Three Hundred Midi Tower Gamer Black Case it’s good no?
thank you Mrbumbum just saw you'r post.
