    Hi I've never built my own PC before so any help would be much appreciated. I'm thinking about building my own Gaming HTPC to replace my ps3 and laptop. I have looked around the forums and come up with a spec i think that will more than handle my needs but, i would appreciate some feedback and advice from the experts on this forum. I'm not sure about the case or the gpu and i do want it to be as silent as possible. Also I'm going to connect it via HDMI to my Home Cinema system.
