Help with a build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Ive built a few gaming computers before with the help of some forum members in the past but this time the objective has changed.

Im attempting to build a sub 1000 dollar computer built for school related + general tasks such as movies. School related stuff would only include things like word, ppt, etc (so nothing taxing). I would like for this computer to be very quiet as well as produce very low amounts of heat (small room off campus summer time). In addition, no gaming will be done on this comp so i think the HD intel graphics that comes integrated on the cpu will be fine.

I have never been too concerned with noise or heat in the past so this is quite new to me.

So far, just based on reviews, I have thought of purchasing a fractal r4 case and a noctua cpu fan.

If someone could point me in the right direction for the rest of the parts and/or critique the case and fan I would really apprecilate it!

Im in canada btw.

Thanks

Here is the complete build i came up with. I was really stumped when it came to the cpu and mobo. Seems like there are many cpus around the same price range.

Never had a fanless psu before but based on a quick internet search it seems pretty decent.

If you guys have suggestions for different parts or a reconsideration in distribution of funds for each part please let me know.

Thanks

Thanks,

May I ask why you recommend the 500W over the fanless 400W? Is it due to the price?

It had good ratings based off the site and decent price as well. I couldn't find the psu you had listed, and I'm no expect. If you think that's the best one for you, then go for it. PM fellow member shilka if you want a definitive answer. He is THE man concerning psu's. He's that good.

If you're not dead set on the case, you could go smaller/cheaper.
