Hi, I have a very noisy PC (Alienware from Dell) which is several years old now and I want to build a PC. I will take this opportunity to build one that is quiet. My budget is £500-£600 I don't need monitor or keyboard/mouse. It will be used for some gaming so the graphics card needs to be good but I listen to music a lot and some of the games are quiet and so the PC needs to run quietly.

Thanks in advance

I looked up the suggested build by awesomeyi and made some adjustments mainly the bigger case and also I prefer a dedicated soundcard. It is still within my budget. Please can someone take a look and let me know if they see any problems with it or if this is all good. thanks.

Thanks Leaxa992 the case seems to be what I am after for the new PC as it is a full sized and quiet one. I will check the case will work with the parts awesomeyi suggests.

I'm guessing that your not planning to OC, right? Do you live near a Microcenter? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zWWA This is a pretty cheap one, but uses mini-ITX, which has limited expansion options. I managed to squeeze in a GTX 650ti

Thanks. I am a newbie so I think I would rather go for the full size case to make my life a little less stressful when assembling it. I saw the suggestion by Lexar992 of the full size case I assume that case will work with the parts you suggest.

Thanks for your help.
