Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.
CPU: I choose the 630 MB: Good RAM: I would for 4GB. GPU: 5850 is the best option. PSU: Good and enough for your rig. TFT: What price? i have a samsung 2333 1920x1080 OS: Win 7 for the 4GB.
Your case need a good airflow
Thanks for the prompt reply Saint19,
The HAnnsG 24.6" is also 1920 x 1080 & it costs 250 euros locally ( that's Malta, Europe ) , the Samsung would cost more,for sure. eg. The Samsung 24"Wide SM2494HM 1920 x 1080 costs 335 euros.
As for cooling, I'll get a pair of superb Enermax 8cm or 9cm Everest Batwings.
My main concern is that the 630 is not classed as a good gaming cpu, on this site ??? and I can't understand why ...
Thnks Again Zr
1- ups, expensive. The HannsG is good.
2- Usually it's 'cause the 620 and 630 don't have L3 cache memory. You can read THIS and you can see that the 630 is a very good processor.
