    I would perhaps suggest if budget allows to switch to I5 3570K as will allow more options for overclocking to get more out of the system.

    Also a bigger SSD - 240gb would give you more game data storage as you dont have a normal drive. (120 is not much when windows takes up 40odd gb when sp's installed ( Mines nearly full and I just have apps on it !! most is purely service packs.)

    Case? unless ive missed it, you aint got one......:facepalm:

    I think you will struggle to get a silent gaming PC. There isn't much you can do about the GPU and PSU fans but something like a Scythe Shuriken CPU cooler will help along with good quality case fans like Noctua's.

    Lol sorry! Been a long day and didnt spot that! Tbh, I thought you had put a 3rd party CPU heatsink cooler tbh!

    :facepalm:

    I would also suggest getting a large heatsink - something like Arctic cooling pro freezer 8 would work - Pretty silent and as David says, you aint gonna get a completely silent gaming rig.

    You would get a quiet rig with large, small RPM fans but not silent espec when gaming and the CPU and GPU is running at full wack getting frame rates out.
