PSU: Cooler Master V450S (or Seasonic G-360)
If you mind, the original Antec unit is a bit far from being quiet, but swapping the fan with a quiet one (usually I use Noctua R8) is an excellent and cost effective mod. The fan should be drived externally using a suitable tool (AI Suite, SpeedFan).
- any suggestions?
As you choose the V450S I think you are in Europe: the most cost effective option is more probably that not the Scythe Kotetsu (but there are many options there). Give a look to latest SPCR articles.
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 500GB
Good choice, the Crucial MX100 should cost a tad less, if you mind.
GPU: cheapest fanless dual-link DVI video card for my U3014 Dell
- wanted to use the on-board GPU initially. Sadly crappy Asus only outputs [email protected]
over HDMI which crappy Dell does not accept accept as input on the U3014...
IMO/IME a fanless GPU inside a 3480 is not the best option (restricted inlet, exhaust a bit far).
As you aim to play something, I would rather a dual fanned Radeon like either R265 or R270 (probably from XFX or ASUS) using SpeedFan or Afterburner to cook a custom fan curve. Alternatively you can mount a passive AC Accelero S1 Plus cooler on the cheaper GTX-750/750Ti you'll able to find.
You need a fan case, the Antec one is terrible.
