100% silent desktop, lol! depends how you define 100% silent.
anyway! i'll up pics of my current setup eventually. new to this particular site so bare with me.
i've decided to go with a desktop system to power all this gear. (and by the way its only £200 for the terrabyte drives, i shop around and import alot.)
so i havent pulled out a list of complete specs for cirtain components yet however this is the preliminary build specs for the upcoming desktop (its gunna take some time and im going to sell my laptop in order to help fund it) so yeah im taking some advice here lol
weblinks provided to manufacterers websites for components im set on.
armour for it is the GMC ATX R3 Corona Computer Tower Case Black Colour
hdd's : seagate 500gb along with a seagate 2TB
optical drive: BLU-RAY dvd burner
motherboard: asus P5N E-SLI
this or the deluxe model has 2 pci-e x16 slots
ram: going to max the motherboards capacity at 8GB (why not? if it can handle it lol)
CPU: intel core 2 duo 2.8ghz or higher depending on how cheaply i can find them
psu: 800W or higher utra quiet modular
cooling: 3x 80mm ultra silent fans + 1x exhaust fan thats quite good actually lol
graphics cards: 2x Asus HD4350 512MB if they'll work together anyway but they have DVI VGA and HDMI outputs. NICE!
extra add in cards:
1x 2port usb 3.0 pci card
1x 4port usb 2.0 pci card
onboard audio and i have a usb 7.1 sound card that works great. will be using the onboard ethernet for networking as router is on my desk, seems fair play lol.
i think together this should make quite a speedy little system.
any improvement suggestions would be nice! but please, try and keep them helpful.
by the way, i re-arranged my lounge and got a bigger desk so i can use a desktop without worrying bout dust and crap to much.
oh if anyone can recommend a graphics card that will perform better when there is 2 of them being used that have dvi, vga and hdmi thats priced between £30-£50 please lemme know.
and i know i cant use all 3 ports at once, its either dvi+vga or dvi+hdmi and some cases vga + hdmi. i'll only be using one vga + dvi combo and the second card is for a dvi hd monitor and the HDMI to link up with the hd tv for playing blu ray movies. if that makes sence.
