Inexpensive SILENT UPGRADE advice
I have a computer that I has been rebuilt and up graded over the years. Try as I might, it always ends up a bit noisier than I want. At this point, I want to eliminate all fans and noise. My goal is to eliminate the fans and possibly set myself up to put it all into a miniITX case at some point. It was thinking that I could just replace the motherboard with one of these fanless miniITX motherboard combos and one of those power supplies on the cord. Seem reasonable?
Usage: basic stuff, looking at pictures, videos off a camera, ability to drive high res monitor, look at maps, office surfing
Any suggestions on the mother board/CPU? $100 would be great.
Do I need a video card or is onboard good enough for my meager needs?
Here is what I have now:
MB ECS G41T-M(2.0) 775 G41 ICH7 RT
CPU INTEL|CELERON E3300 2.5G 775 R
VGA XFX|HD-435X-ZAH2 HD4350 1G RT
MEM 2G|KST KHX6400D2/2G R
Western Digital WD320AAKA SATA (3.5in) (Mhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136074B ECS G41T-M(2.0) 775 G41 ICH7 RT)
DVD drive too (3.5in)
Thanx ahead of time,
PS: I should probably just give in and get one of those cute mini macs but I just cannot get myself to do it.
