Hi I'm looking to replace my current PC which has lasted 8 years amazingly.

Fractal case? if there's better quiet options let me know
Motherboard,, ? i don't know. Assume most will allow at least 4 drives to be connected internally and have USB3
and a few USB connections. Don't think I need anything unusual out of it?
Corsair power supply? As quiet as possible that hopefully will be mostly passive?
Coffee Lake 8700 I7.
I think 16gb ram will be fine to start with?
Video card hmm 950? something again that's mostly passively cooled?
1x SSD 500g?


Priorities are as quiet as possible, reliable, price, power.

Budget is a little flexible, I usually spend around 2k on a new machine, but I might be asking for a lot here.. cheeeeers, Bevan

p.s I can build it. Don't need any peripherals or OS

Please have a look at the below list of components and let me know your thoughts.

To keep within your budget I did not include assembly by us so you could maximise your components.
