I am currently planning to build one gaming, enough to play all the recent games in decent resolution (1680 * 1050). My total budget is around 40k - 45k INR. Here is my config. Please post your suggestion guys
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Rs8750
Asus P5Q - Pro Rs8400
Transcend DDR 2 800 Mhz - 4 GB Rs3700
Seagate 750 GB (32MB Buffer, SATA 2) Rs6000
Zebronics Vivah (400Wpsu) Rs1450
Palit HD 4850 = Rs13000
Logitech Keyboard and mouse set. Rs600
(All prices are according to Chennai market)
So the total is 42k.
Is this config ok. Do i need extra power supply and cooling. This is my first build, help me out.
I don't know if that is a quality power supply but it seems cheap compared to the rest of the compents so i would go for a solid 500watt power supply that is a name brand. other wise those parts are very solid, as far as cooling goes i don;t what your case is or how many fans it has.
Save your self some cash and get a P5Q-E.
Same features for 25% less.
With the cash you saved, get a better PSU.
I am not sure what you have in your area, but you need a quality 500W+ unit.
If you can get one, the Corsair units are very nice as are PSU's from PCP&C, Enermax, Silverstone and Antec. Just avoid the Antec PSU's with a "D" after the wattage rating. They are made by a new supplier and are much weaker than the older ones.
If you can afford it, get a better cooler for the 4850 and E8400. For the CPU, an Artic Cooling Freezer 7 pro will give you good performance at a low price point. For the 4850, I would recommend an Artic Cooling Accelero S1 Rev2. Even passively cooled, it will perform better than the stock 4850 cooler.
What ever you decide, make sure to get a quality PSU. A cheap unit will result in failure and probable damage to the rest of the system.
