Need advice on a system build

Hello,
I'm buying a pc from a company and they have some upgrades option, And I wanted to ask your advice about the upgrades I'm going to take,
Well I have about 1210 $ , and I need a screen also,
I've seen very nice builds in the forum in "Recommended Builds by Usage' Post , But the 1000$ option cost here in Israel 1500$ without a screen...

Anyway In some things I decided and in other I yet decided :
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5 750 2.66GHz
RAM: Two Kingstone KVR1333D3N9/2G = 4GB
HDD: Western Digital 500GB SATA2 32MB Buffer

GPU: GeForce 240GT 512MB GV-N240D5-512I


I have some options for PSU
Hec 600W or Thermaltake SopranoRS 101
are those ok?

all of this stuff included case and fans in non upgraded mobos down cost me 906 $

MOBO :
Gigabyte GAP55US3L OR MSI P55-CD53
// Upgrades : MSI P55-GD55 25$ or ASUS P7P55D 55$

What mobo should I choose? , Or are they lame and I should try and find another one?

Anyway, I've just posted whats in my mind right know, Any advice? , Is it good?,
They have more options of upgrades and stuff, but more upgrades more money.
What you think,? Thank you.

  1. PSU: I would go with the Thermaltake over the Hec. I would prefer an option for an Antec, Corsair, SeaSonic or OCZ but those might not be available to you.

    MOBO: If you can budget it in, I would do the upgrade to the ASUS board. It is the better of the four... IMO.

    GPU: Do you have any options on your GPU to maybe get something more powerful?? ATI 5770 for example.

    HDD: Do you have an option for a Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB or Seagate 7200.12 500GB hard drive? These are around the same price as the WD but are based on a single 500GB platter, which makes them faster drives (comparable to the WD VRaptor).
  2. 1) what are you going to be using this computer for?

    2)The Asus mobo is much nicer and a much more reliable name
  3. Yes all good questions so far but it really boils down to is it a gaming rig or just internet and email?
  4. Its for games, and i thought 1300$ will be enough ...

    Ok soo asus it is..

    hdd It seems that the price are not so different , So I'll find a seagate 7200.12.

    So all we have left is the GPU


    well they have alot of ati 5770 which one do you think..

    Is it good for games..
    Is it the best that this amount of money can get?
  5. Sorry for double post but no one answer..
    In ati 5770 GPU I have this options:
    MSI ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB PCIe
    Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB GDDR5
    Sapphire Vapor-X HD5770 1024MB PCIe
    Asus ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB DDR5
    Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB PCIe

    What should I choose , Or If it does not make any different I'll choose the cheapest

    thank you
  6. Hmm it'll be good if u link to an online hardware e-tailer where u at so we have a better idea what kind of prices we are looking at there ^^
  7. I assume you talking about the GPU prcies?
    I did posted the online hardware e-tailer , But as I said its in Hebrew ..
    Anyway for the GPU i can just put on the prices..
    MSI ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB PCIe 224$
    Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB GDDR5 234$
    Sapphire Vapor-X HD5770 1024MB PCIe 248$
    Asus ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB DDR5 247$
    Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB PCIe 234$
