    Building a new pc, please help

    Hi,

    I am trying to build a new pc that will mainly be used for 3d. I live in Edmonton, Canada, so I will buy the parts from this website: www.ncix.com. I couldn't find any better/cheaper.

    Right now I have chosen these parts:

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Dual Core Processor LGA775 Conroe 2.40GHZ 1066FSB 4MB Retail

    Samsung 215TW 21IN Widescreen Black LCD 1680X1050 1000:1 8MS VGA DVI Pivot HAS W/ DVI Cable

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB SATA2 3GB/S 7200RPM 16MB Cache NCQ Hard Drive

    LG GSA-H22N DVD+RW 18X8X16 DVD-RW 18X6X16 Dual Layer 8X DVD-RAM 12X DVD Writer 2MB

    ASUS P5B Deluxe / WIFI-AP ATX LGA775 Conroe 965P DDR2 PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 3PCI 8 SATA2 Sound Motherboard

    Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4 2GB 2X1GB PC6400 DDR2-800 CL 4-4-4-12 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit

    EVGA E-GEFORCE 8800 GTS 500MHZ 640MB 1.6GHZ GDDR3 Dual DVI-I HDTV Out HDCP DIRECTX10 Video Card

    Do you think I should replace any of the above?

    The parts, I couldn't decide are: case, power supply and cpu cooler. All I want is something that runs really cool and COMPLETELY SILENT. I have been using a system that is relatively noisy and I really don't want to again. I might overclock the cpu to a degree, so you might suggest 2 cpu coolers if you want (1 for overclocking and another for normal usage).

    If you can make the selection from www.ncix.com, that would be really great.




    Thanks again for your help!

    Listed components seem to be alright.
    In case you're interested, the ASUS P5W DH Deluxe is listed for about $7.00 more...
    Depends on your preference for the 975 or 965 chipset.

    For some ideas on quiet pc components,
    You can take a look at spcr

    The P5W DH Deluxe provides native support for PATA devices,
    Where as mobos based off the 965 chipsets require third party chip for support.
    That P5W DH Deluxe is supposedly on sale for the couple? of days.
    Usually, it would be a couple double digits more.
