Yep thats right. I wish to build a new pc. The con this time is that I want it to be TOTALLY silent. The GTX 295 has pissed me off to the point that I wish to build a TOTALLY silent pc. Obviously this means SSD etc.
The pc will be used for:
-Watching 1080p films
-Playing some old games (though its not totally critical) like Age of empires, Serious Sam and maybe Stronghold.
Are there any CPU's that are powerful enough but don't need a fan? I have a thermalright Ultra 120a.
Size isnt really an issue and I can either stick it in a P182 case or I can budget a case (maybe even build one myself
