    I think am gonna go with some of compact cases and custom built machine. I found newer versions of ASUS Pundit but they are so ugly I can not describe.

    No problem.

    BTW, if you want quiet, get a case with 120mm fans, and replace the fans that come with the case with noctua fans

    Yeah, yeah! The 500 RPM undervolted (?) ones. And... and...

    Can we build the computer for you? We're already halfway to erection.

    Not sure which ones. There aren't many of them in this store.

    Haha, well, sure ... I've decided to go with this video card and to go with AMD Phenom II X4 925... any suggestions about other hardware... am thinking this case would be quite nice. Not sure about memory and motherboard

    It's always fun suggesting hardware on non-localized forums. Just grab whatever is available or you'll never get it done, the worst part about building your own rig. Maybe fast-forward through a couple of reviews of mobos and other hardware that look good on paper.

    The Noctua fan I meant is probably more commonly referred to something like "the most popular fan in the world" or "the newer version of" the aforementioned. Noctua and Scythe and ... well, haven't been following the tuning scene lately, some of them are better for blowing cool air in than hot air out, but who gives a poo.

    Yeah, I was left out of hardware advances for some time. When it comes to "finishing" something... am quite a stubborn fella, so I guess I won't have any problems with that. Once I decide I really want to buy a new computer that is.

    Thanks again

    A lot of fans can be run undervolted, and the noctua fans can normally be run at 5 volts (not the standard 12volts). At low voltage, the fans spin slower, and are quieter.

    A GTX 470?!?!?? Power hungry, hot and huge gaming cards. Not what you want for a small quiet system. It wont fit in that case anyway-

    Case dimensions h x w x d 360 x 100 x 455mm
    http://www.gigatronshop.com/products...roduct/19680/8

    Standard Graphics Card Dimensions:Height4.376 inches (111 mm) Length9.5 inches (241 mm) WidthDual-slot
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/product...tx_470_us.html

    'Height' in video cards = 'width' in cases. A 110mm card isnt going to fit into a 100mm case.

    BTW, those 'slim' cases tend to have very limited power supplies avaible, and I doubt that you will find a slim power supply that can run a GTX 470 and a X4 925.

    Yeah, I realized that myself after I posted here.
