Please evaluate my build. I am a novice and welcome your suggestions. If something should be changed, please tell me why so I can learn.
Use: Home pc for photo editing (lightroom), video editing (Adobe Premiere Elements), some gaming (minecraft). The only game my son plays on the PC now is Minecraft. I could see him wanting to play more games in the future. I have never overclocked but willing to give it a try.
Priorities:PC must be quiet and look stylish. I chose the micro case because this will sit on the desktop and I prefer something smaller. Did I mention quiet!
Already Have: Crucial SSD 256mb sata III and two WD 640gb hdd, Windows 7 pro x64.
Budget: Under $1,000. I would spend more if there is a good reason to. Would love to spend less.
Will the Micro Fit everything? The i7 is pretty big, I'd shop around for a bigger ATX mid tower. Everything else seems great, really good build. I couldn't really help you with the noise, but I would say it isn't extremely quite but it won't be that loud either.
