More about expert plzzz
  1. other then the lack of OS (which i'm assuming you will "acquire") I see no issues with comparability.
  2. get an i5 3570k the i 7 doesn't give you any benifit in gaming (maybe 2-5% more performance over the i 5 and the i 5 is way cheaper)
  3. u mean keyboard,mouse n monitor like stuff???
    XROE
  4. Also why not get a Z77 mobo? And make sure you get 2x4gb ram and not 1x8gb

    He means Operating System, you know windows, ubuntu, what have you not.
  6. but the price diffrence between i7 n i5 is only rs2000 n its in my buget ...... soo i think i7 will be better----JASLION.....what u think :?

  8. do i need to change anything to my config that will be good for me
    like fans,ssd,ram,internal optical drive or mobo...

    :>
    i can increase my buget around 2k

    To be fair you don't need any of that if you wanted to remote into it via another machine, but i'm just being a smart arse by that point. I can't think of any necessities to add other then the gpu but you said you plan on getting that later so i'd say you are good,

    i will go for the Sapphire AMD/ATI HD 7850 HDMI OC Edition 2 GB GDDR5 gpu.... its good
  11. HEY GUYS THIS TOPIC IS NOT SOLVED YET.... :( -_-
  12. NZXT PHANTOM 410 (BLACK)

    Intel 3.5 GHz LGA1155 Core i7 3770K

    G.SKILL TRIDENT X DDR3 4GB x 2

    CM HYPER 212 EVO - if you can afford it switch with a Corsair H80i

    WD BLUE WD10EZEX 1 TB - if you can afford it switch with either a Caviar Black or rather take a Seagate barracuda. (you might even get a good price for a 2TB barracuda)

    For the SSD I would suggest also looking at:
    OCZ Vertex 4, Agility 3
    SanDisk Extreme SSD SDSSDX or ultra Plus
    Samsung 840 MZ7TD120KW (really good price)
    I have also seen the Seagate 600 is cheap every now and then. Although I have not used their SSD's yet.

    I prefer OCZ, but for now Corsair, OCZ and Samsung lead the market share with SSD's.

    As for optical drive you can easily find a cheaper LG drive that will do the exact same thing.

    Did you remember to factor in OS costs? Or are you going to use Linux?

    Any other questions?
  13. I would suggest mineral oil fishtank cooling too. It is very efficent in cooling such builds. You will have very tactical temperatures.

    can u suggest me a littel bit cheaper n good liquid cooling because corsair h80i is blowing up my buget.... :(
    AND i m taking wd blue because i hav read on this site that wd is much better then seagate....
    n if i wanted more memory later can i take one more hdd...i mean can 2 hdd be fitted in 1 pc


    Yes you can always add more HDD's into your pc, many people replace HDD's with larger HDD's later on. I myself replaced an older 2TB with a 4TB earlier this year.

    The H80i (the I is important) is much cheaper than the H80 standalone, it's also newer.

    Look at the Corsair H60, otherwise stick with the CM CPU heat sink & fan. Coolermaster make great products, the second most expensive parts of my pc is Coolermaster made. I just said if you can go over your budget :)

    That might be true about WD, I have the myPassport & I love it, but if it's not caviar black it's not that much better imho (just my opinion).
    So it's up to you if the possibility of being better outweighs the reality of being cheaper.

    What I suggest about the HDD situation is do not take it out until you don't have anymore space for additional HDD's.

    IF you get a larger say 2TB drive at a later stage, move the games for instance, on this drive to a new drive and dedicate this drive to media only, movies/videos, pictures/ photos, music ect. If you are like that I have friends who store that way.

    I personally don't care for now I sort my folders neatly and plan to raid some other 3x 4TB with it later on...

    So you can even add additional RAM later on if you wanted. My suggestion though is stick to the same brand and the same formula if you do the 2x 4GB (recommended) take another 2x4GB later on. But this really isn't needed unless you multitask your pc like a bitch. I do that, I'd have 30 something tabs open, be in Photoshop, after effects, ect. So more than 8GB RAM is only needed if you are going to whip your pc like a slave.

    Once again you don't need liquid cooling it was merely a suggestion :)
    I would steer clear of cheap liquid cooling (take the Cooler Master: Hyper 212 EVO)

    I seriously suggest you take LG Optical drives they will save you money.

    OS: Windows 7 Home Edition, Pro, Windows 8 Pro, up to you really 95% of people on this forum will suggest Windows 7, I personally like windows 8 it's new, it's fresh I don't need a start menu when I have windows file explorer.

    For SSD see my previous post suggesting SSD's

    I also mentioned you really don't need the SSD right now, it's just a nice luxury to have, you also don't really need a 120 or 128GB SSD 60GB is fine too, you don't need to have games on there you can have all your programs run off it and maybe your most played game.

    GPU that 1 would be fine, any medium- high end card around 2012-13 with 2GB of memory is acceptable.

    yes it will the socket 1155 is compatible.

    If you are not taking the H80i take the Coolermaster hyper 212 evo you need cooling on the cpu. The CM 212 Evo is nearly as good as a good liquid cooler for much cheaper :) but do not neglect cooling by taking nothing.
