Here are the parts I will start with.
Case - SilverStone LC10-E Black - Perfect case with 7 internal 3.5" bays which will accommodate my NAS (planning on going with 3x 2TB HDDs) as well as backup drives (will mod some, well 3x 2TB usb 3.0 WD external drives. SO they are mounted in the case but plugged in via their usb cables at rear, so when not in use they will be simpily unplugged. They will just be straight clones of the media drives and updated when necessary). The case also has a great seamless finish to the front with a nicely integrated OP drive cover which will look great no matter where it sits.
CPU - Intel Core i3 2100 - Perfect low power CPU that will happily manage some light gaming (I am contemplating putting one of the 560s in this and using switchable graphics so the 95 of the time only the HD2000 graphics will be used)
Mobo - ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Motherboard - Has all the connections I need, decent cooling for 24/7 running and may as well go for an ATX board my case will fit it with ease.
CPU Cooler - Noctua NH-U9B SE2 - Noise is a huge thing as well as cool running and considering the prices of other low profile coolers there really was nothing to stop this being a great choice.
PSU - Corsair CX-600 V2 Power Supply - Overkill... maybe but it will run dead silent once i mod it and it will easily handle the 7770 I plan on installing in the future and come the end of the day when it is time to replace things I could remove every part of the build and make a decent low-mid end gaming rig.
OP Drive - Pioneer DVR-219L DVDRW OEM - Pure Black unlike many other OP drives so that alone was enough for me to spend an extra $4 on it.
RAM - G.Skill F3-10666CL9D-4GBNQ (2x2GB) DDR3 - RAM is RAM is RAM and this suits my need perfectly and cheaply.
Case Fans - Noctua NF-R8 80mm Fan - Again noise is a huge thing.
TV Tuner - Hauppauge HVR2200 MCE PCIe Dual Hybrid - Already have a Hauppauge remote and this will work perfectly for recording and watching HD TV.
To be added later.
- New HDDS
- Auzentech X-Meridian 7.1 2G
