My uncle wanted a fast, silent, cool and discrete pc. So I choose these parts. He uses it for facebook, youtube and downloading movies into his portable usb drive.

Part Reviews

CPU

Pros: Hyperthreading, fast, cool.

Cons: Stock cooler sucks, just 2 cores, it has got a crappy GPU (256 vram lol).

CPU Cooler

Pros: Very very cheap, looks badass, quiet, easy to install.

Cons: Copper dissipation, ****** pre-applied thermal paste.

Memory

Pros: Fast, badass looking, KINGSTON.

Cons: Not dual channel...? Idk. I think there're no cons.

Storage

Pros: Light weight, fast, good price for performance, again KINGSTON.

Cons: I can't find anything bad at this SSD.

Storage

Pros: Cheap, a lot of storage, warranty, silent.

Cons: VERY heavy.

Case

Pros: Good looking, windowed, good airflow, high quality 120mm fan w/blue led included.

Cons: Not cable management optimized.

Power Supply

Pros: Cheap, durable, warranty, you can put a gpu in the future.

Cons: Not "flat" cables.

Optical Drive

Pros: Cheap, Samsung.

Cons: It DOES make a loooot of noise.

I know this is a long time ago, but you can see it says if the number starts with "E30" they should be fine. The model in this build happens to be decent.
