Hi all, I'd like to have a go at building a small desktop, after using laptops for the last few years. I've taken apart a few desktops before, and am generally proficient with computer hardware, however I've never actually built my own PC.
I would like it to:
1. Be as small as possible (micro ATX)
2. Be as quiet as possible
3. Be more than capable of handling HD content
4. Be up to most everday-day computer tasks
I'm not concerned with gaming as a rule, but would like a motherboard capable of taking a decent graphics card (just incase I wanted to upgrade in a year or so's time), however integrated graphics capable of stutter-free HD content is a must. Likewise I have various external drives (both optical and HDD) lying around, as well as monitors and keyboards.
Thus am I correct in assuming that I will need:
A micro-ATX case
Micro-ATX motherboard, with compatable PSU
Would any kind soul be able to suggest decent models of the above, and the sort of price range I should be looking at?
