Hi everyone, I would like some advice on my first computer build. Would like powerful, fast, efficient computer that is near to silent or ideally silent! Thank you very much for some advice hopefully, looked at a lot of reviews and posts online and the parts I have listed appear to be good buys for being silent/powerful/goodish value and compatible with each other.
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 via HDMI to TV
Possible parts based on research:
Intel i5 3570K (£170 amazon)http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Gene
Asus P8Z77-V LX (£86 amazon)http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-Mothe
Seasonic x-400 watt (£105 amazon)http://www.amazon.co.uk/SeaSonic-X
seasonic x-660 watt (£124) depending advice and what is most suitable to system components.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seasonic-X
Would like good value smallish SSD to minimise noise and maximise speed before adding larger HDD in future for media etc which could spin down with inactivity to remove noise.
Looked at quite a few cases and dont want to spend over £50 on one really. Would like great air flow with large fans so they can be run slow and be quiet while effectively cool.
The BitFenix Outlaw Midi Tower Chassis - Black £40 looks like it might do the trick?http://www.amazon.co.uk/BitFenix-O
Currently there is a deal for cpu (as above), motherboard (as above) and ram at dabs (£290).
Asus Intel Performance Bundle (Includes P8Z77-V LX, Intel Core i5-3570K & 8GB Black Mamba DDR3)http://www.dabs.com/products/asus-
I would like this desktop for mostly watching TV/movies and encoding video but for general office applications, surfing and sporadic gaming.
Any advice and tips greatly appreciated! Also any suggestions for a suitable silent/very quiet cpu cooler would be good and case fans.
Thank you everyone
