Question New build help needed

Hi there

1st I must tell you I'm danish so maybe there's some spelling errors.

My MB crashed so I'm going to build a new compuuter.
My graphic card & powersupply ( a Thermaltake 750W ) I'm going to keep but have to get a motherboard - RAM - CPU & CPU cooler and fan.

I use my computer to surf - downloading - listen to music and writing letters,
the games I play is boardgames and Hidden objects games.

I've been building computers around 20 years, but it's 2 years since my last build, that's why I need help choosing the hardware. I have used mostly ASUS
MBs in my builds and have had no problem with any of them so I would like to get a ASUS Motherboard again. I don't need an MB with too many features I don't need / use that would be a vaste of money, but one with a good reputation, not known for problems

I don't care if it's an Intel or AMD as long as it's good and stable.

CPU Cooler and Fan:
They got to be as silent as possible

I've used Corsair for years and wouldn't mind continue with it

My budget is 500 - 600 $, maybe that seem too little to you but in Denmark computer parts don't cost alot

Hope someone can help me, it's terrible beeing without a computer

Take Care Susanne

On the contrary, Denmark pricing is actually pretty high compared to us. 500-600 can build you a whole computer rather easily in USD.

Anyways, if that's all you do you could easily be fine with an i3 4130, an Asus H81 motherboard, and 8GB of 1600MHz RAM.
