I'm planning on building an APU based PC. This is going to be my first build so I want to make sure all the parts are good quality products from known brands and they are compatible with each other. I live in England, my max budget is 350 POUNDS, I could squeeze just a little bit more if it improves my system. I'd like the system to be quiet over all (I hate noisy fans) and be able to run the following games: Minecraft, Combat arms, Black Light Retribution and some other modern titles.

I'm not going to be building this system myself, instead I'll pay someone to assemble it together. :sol: 

NOTE: I don't need a Monitor (1400x900/1600x900), OS or K&M.

Please feel free to recommend better products if they'll improve my system performance. So far I have come up with this:

CPU:

MOBO:

RAM:

HDD:

PSU:

CASE:

OPTICAL DRIVE:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007IKS7AU/ref=gno_c...
(What I don't understand is people saying that this is optional, but it's not. If we don't have a optical drive how are we suppose install our OS?)


Please reply because I'm going to be be buying very soon! :sarcastic:
