Hi guys!

I am about to build a new computer to have in my girlfriends appartment livingroom. Needless to say, it has to look nice, and be pretty quiet to be allowed in. For me, I want the computer to be good enough to run new games on fairly good graphics, and support at least two monitors as I will be using the computer for work and studies. I have some parts laying around, wich I hope will bring down the total amount of money I'll have to use.

Theese are my criterias:

- Silent
- Budget
- Performance good enough to run new games at fair graphics

Theese are my components:

Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3
AMD FX-4170
Corsair XMS3 1866MHz 8GB Vengeance CL9
Fractal Design Define R4 Arctic White
Corsair CX V2 600W PSU
TP-LINK TL-WN851N 11n Wireless Adapter
BenQ 19" LED BL902TM
Radeon HD 4890 (have it laying around, using it to save some money)
Intel X-25 SSD 160 (have it laying around, using it to save some money)

What do you guys think about this? Anything you would change?
Any suggestions?
