Hi guys. I have some spares and some parts I need to buy for my main PC so I'm thinking about building a compact system for my living room (for browsing, watch video, casual gaming with controller, etc...). I sent my old motherboard for repair (busted BIOS), I have to upgrade my PSU to feed my 280X (500W isn't enough to overclock both CPU and GPU) and I have some other components I can use around the house.
Things I have:
MSI P67A-GD65 B3 ATX (Currently in repair shop for BIOS update)
MSI GTX560Ti Twinfrozr II OC (Problems with current drivers, works well with drivers from MSI)
Samsung 1TB F3 Spinpoint 7200
DDR3 2x2Gb Corsair 1333 CL9 (Currently in my sister-in-law PC which as 8GB total, it will run fine with only 4GB)
Antec Earthwatts EA-500D Green (Currently on my own PC for upgrade)
Stock Intel Cooler (from my current 3570K)
Things I have in mind:http://www.nox-xtreme.com/en/product/media-hd/42/ 50€
Big enough for ATX motherboards, I think it will fit the GPU. The case has 450mm depth, the card measures 238mm and the PSU 140mm. I believe it will have a little room to spare.http://www.blacknoise.com/en/products/it/13/Noiseblocker-NB_BlackSilentFan_60mm 20€
Maybe a replacement for the stock fans on the case if they are to loud.Processor. My doubt. I'm trying to keep this on a tight budget, but I don't want to compromise anything. This isn't a gaming PC although with a GPU like the 560Ti It will run things fine on my 1080p TV. I think a dual core will be fine, even those without hyperthreading. What do you think?
Ethernet: I will bring it by power line from my room to the living room. I think I will achieve a better signal than a wireless repeater. It's cheaper than buying a wireless board and a repeater.*EDIT
I forgot about the keyboard. I'm thinking about this:http://www.logitech.com/en-za/product/wireless-touch-keyboard-k400r?crid=26 35€
Good enough for browsing, compact and useful to have in the living room.
Things I will add if needed:
DVD/Bluray Drive or any drive the future brings.
Am I missing anything?
Thank you in advance
