Description

I built this to watch TV listen to music and hopefully to play some games on. I found the Cooler Master 120 dose not have that good an air flow so thinking of getting an after market CPU cooler something like a Thermalright AXP-100 and a another 120 fan . I was wanting it to be quite so I went for a asus 6670 1gb DDR3 Silent not a good choose as thr FPS are quite low so I am thinking of upgrading to a Sapphire Ultimate Fanless HD7750 1G GDDR5 . The San Disk Ultra Plus 128 gb was one of my best buys and the PSU is a Seasonic X series fanless 460 watt all in all real enjoyed building my little beast with the future of some up grades

CPU I went for this as I was not going to overclock and had great reviews .

GPU I know people are going to say I can get better but I want it silent so I went for an Asus HD 6670 DDR3 1gb Silent I find it to be a bit slow so I will upgrade when I get some spare cash

Power supply Seasonic X series 460 watt again cos its silent and heard great reviews on it .

Hard drives 1 SSD SanDisk Ultra rev 3 So it dose 6 gb/sec very nice SSD for the money and for storage a1 tb Seagate Momentous 5400 rpm .

RAM Stontium 8gb 1600 DDR3 .

Case Cooler Master 120 Elite not a bad little case could have come with more fans though.

OS Windows 7 Pro 64 bit (good old Microsoft .)

I bet you could fit a bigger GPU in there than you think. Even the ones with fans are still fairly quiet as long as you don't overclock them.

People have fit lots of big GPU's in there...although I guess you want to go fanless, which is a noble pursuit :D

If you don't plan to overclock use this one: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/noctua-cpu-cooler-nhl9i

Also you can add a second 120mm Fan behind the hard drive cage for more cooling if needed.

Sorry if I come across as a noob of sorts (I have pretty much no experience in PC building). What is the difference between a HTPC and a regular PC? is it just the size? Cheers.

None in reality. HTPC means Home Theater PC. So most people will build a small form factor silent PC and put it in their living room connected to main tv. You can use a program like XBMC or Plex to watch tv (if you have a tv card) and movies/tv shows that have been ripped to the hard drive, as well as play games.
