You will need:

 - RAM

 - Power Supply Unit

 - Hard Drive/SSD

 - Case

 - Fans

 

The board you have has an integrated AMD processor and integrated graphics, so other than that, you're set :)

You do not need a 400 watt power supply for this board, and it is ITX form factor.

maybe

You would have to research "quality" on these, the Antec is good. Supposedly the Rosewill, Thermaltake, are APEX in different appearance. Inwin is usually fair to good.

What are your intentions for this computer? An E350n is limited.

Ram

What do you mean by 'cheap'? I mean what is your budget?

Ok.

Another query: Do you really need ITX platform? Otherwise you can easily get MicroATX board with less amount of money.

The board I plan on using has a built in fan and an APU so unless there is a microATX board out there that does not need fans or a GPU I want to stick with something similar to this board
