    Default Build for a friend

    Hey all, I would like some feedback on the parts list I've put together for a friend of mine. The system will be connected to a 65" plasma TV in a home theater room. He intends to use it for gaming, movies, etc. He wants a very quiet system with no lights that will be powerful enough for the next couple of years. He games primarily with a controller, not a keyboard and mouse. And he will be buying from Tigerdirect because he has a friend that works there who can get him some sort of discount. Here is the list I've come up with for him. First, does the GPU I selected have enough memory for such a large screen and second, what kind of controllers do you guys use for gaming on a PC? I'm a keyboard/mouse guy so don't know anything about controllers. All suggestions or comments are welcome. Thanks.

    Sam, the 650D is not the best case if he wants to have it quite.
    I am just about finishing up with the review on the Bitfenix Ghost - let me tell you, the build is SILENT! Awesome case. Review should go live sometime next week.

    Sam Kenny is correct I am very similar with quiet computing having reviewed similar cases like the one Kenny is working on
    I would hold off till then if I were you and as far as controllers go
    Logitech has some really good wireless controllers the high end ones are a bit pricey but work really well.
    depends on distance whether or not you want to go wireless as well two examples of good controllers below

    Thanks all. And thanks Vinny for the info on the controllers. I don't know crap about them, but I've always had good luck with Logitech so I'll get him two of those.

    As for the case, he is now telling me that he wants to go with a full tower so he can expand to custom water in the near future. I'm recommending the 800D since Tigerdirect doesn't carry any NZXT cases. And as for the GPU, I've settled on this one unless anyone thinks it's a mistake.

    Think this is the route we will go. Kenny, how noisy are the 140mm fans in the 800D. Worth replacing them and, if so, with what fans (preferably black with no LEDs).

    The fans are not noise at all, Infact I still have 2 of them in my build. I didn't replace them at all.

    For controllers, I really like the Razer Onza. I have two. Both are the moe advanced version, but one is the ME3 branded version. The latter has had no issues being used since ME3 launch (minus one month). The other is out of its year of warranty and has been replaced three times... with one of those times them sending me a broken one fresh out of box. At least the warranty was easy. However, it is wired, but the dpad is great and sadly most games are now supporting the xbl gamepad library and not much how the directx library. BTW, the 670 i a great card and the TV is probably only 1080p, so not a hard res to push for it. Not sure he really needs two SSDs... then again, that is exactly what I am doing, so I should not judge. Oh and yes, the Bitfenix Ghost is a great case.

    The new NZXT Phantom would be a good choice, so would the CM Stryker, and defiantly the Cosmos II, I love mine, it's a great case.

    Just a thought on fans, though from what others are saying, I don't think you'll need this but check these guys out.
    Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, COUGAR, Case Fans
    I bought a 120mm for cooler master seidon 120m because I wasn't liking the airflow through the radiator. I wasn't sure about the focused airflow on whether it was a gimick or not but the performance was impressive. Almost as good as a dual push pull setup. Also at 100% these things are really quiet. For radiators particualarly, I was impressed with it.
