Hi !

The computer is going to be used as a gaming computer and other less cpu/gpu demanding tasks like watching movies, but the movies will most of the time be sent thru hdmi to my Plasma TV.

My goal is to achive a stable, SILENT, cool build that the ground components, like CPU/RAM/MB will last for at least of 2 years, hoping for 3 years "Gaming". That i can OC when the time comes.
Achiving a Silent quality computer that has enough perfomance to play games like Diablo 3, Starcraft 2 and some nice driving/car games, in 1920x1080 at the highest detail.

I dont want to go up in price more than 50-100 dollars...If i should replace anything that cost more than that, please give a tip on a another component that will cut my cost but still have the quality and performance of that component. So i dont go over 50-100$

Samsung SSD 830 Series 256GB 2.5"
SATA 6Gb/s (SATA3.0) 520MB/400MB/s read/write, Desktop Kit


GPU: When this card dosen´t cope with gaming in 1920x1080 its time for CF or buying a better one. Depending on price.

You could switch out the Asus Video card for XFX's version?:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Im running the card and even under full load running games at max quality at high resolutions, i can't hear the card at all.
The card is all around great and the DDedition is just that much better."I looks nice too :p )

Other than that, its a nice build.

Good luck

There will probably be a lot of price drops around the holidays allowing you to purchase higher end components at the same cost.

If you really want to go for silent, then check out www.silentpcreview.com for some good tips.
