component recommendations for a new system
Sep 2, 2012

I am looking to build a new system and am looking for suggestions on components. I have build my past two or three systems (all WinXP, so it's been a while) but the people who helped me choose components are no longer up to date with the current technology.

Rough outline is quad core Intel CPU, 64bit Win7, 16MB, small-ish (64GB?) SSD, hard drive size not significant (assuming 1-2TB). Nothing too fancy, what I would consider medium to medium-high end in terms of performance.

I want the system to be quiet. My previous systems used Antec Sonata cases along with low-end graphics cards that did not have cooling fans. I'll get another Antec case, not sure if the quiet graphics cards are still available (or even a good idea).

Specific suggestions would be welcome, but if you have some good references (sites, articles, or other threads on dpReview) that too would be appreciated.
