Hello helpful internet, Looking for any suggestions on this build from avadirect.
Would like some feedback on if I've chosen right especially for chipset/mobo/cpu/ram/hdd.
Here is the base configurator for the starting point for the quiet z77 chipset, I was overwhelmed with choices, but please take a look if you want to see the price differentials. If another chipset is recommended, have to go to a new configuratorhttp://www.avadirect.com/quiet-gam
I've been out of this game way too long so getting the very cheapest thing isn't necessary, so lookjing for advice on any good value upgrades, but don't intend to do my own build.
I would like a relatively quiet PC, but it doesn't need to be silent. So I have chosen some parts to fit that requirement and don't plan on OC-ing.
Mainly going to be for just Diablo3 gaming for now.
I read the tomshw article on Diablo3 saying it won't require the latest and greatest so picked the relatively cheap and quiet Radeon 7750 @$145). If another killer game comes out in the future i can upgrade and jump a few graphics tiers at that point.
Anyway, here is my bucket of parts, wondering if there were any huge substitutions that should be made. I have a relatively new samsung 2TB data drive that I will install in for data storage afterwards.
