I am thinking of creating my own computer, but I seriously lack the knowledge of CPU's etc.
Here's what I got off a website:
Intel i5-530 O/C 4.0Ghz
4Gb DDR3 MEMORY
RADEON 5750 - 1Gb GRAPHICS
Firstly, does the Radeon 5750 even have 1GB ram? Isn't it 512mb?
It has an Intel i5-530 overclocked, would it run okay on a 500W PSU? Or will it break within a week?
Here's what I've got for the Radeon 5750 (left) and the 5770 (right)
Memory Bus Width 128-bit -- 128-bit
Memory Type GDDR5 -- GDDR5
Memory Clock Speed 1150 MHz -- 1200 MHz Memory Size 512 MB -- 1024 MB - is this is ram of the gpu?
Memory Bandwidth 73.6 Gb -- 76.8 Gb
I would appreciate it if someone can tell me what those mean
So anyways, is the above set up worth it for £400? (no screen, no OS)
And what is the Sapphire Radeon HD 5750 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E 2.0 x 16 Graphics Card?
I can get that for an additional £15, isn't that the exact same as the 5750 which already comes with the computer?
Would this be a better choice?
AMD PHEMON X2 550 CPU
1TB HARD DRIVE
GEFORCE GT 220 - 1GB GRAPHICS
Here's what I found for the AMD PHE:
The only reason I'm here asking about every single detail is because the manufacturers website does not include this information, they just highlight the word billion and go on about the colours it supports...
Need any detail/info, just ask.
I want to use this pc for gaming and other stuff, such as rendering HD videos, using photoshop and those sorts of things, which usually take hours and hours (rendering a HD video on this computer takes around 4hours min.)
Sorry to dissapoint .. I can help you and I will .. I was hoping to get you the VERY BEST ADVICE AVAILABLE ON THIS FORUM and, as yet, I am not in the TOP-10 value techs.
I have been a troubleshooting tech for over 30 years (sonny) and built my first computer YEARS before the PC clone. I have forgotten more about tech, in the last 3 years than you will hope to imagine in this lifetime, much less "learn".
My best advice would be to get the VERY best advice from a value-gamer hotshot that knows ALL the combo deals and how to get every fps possible, from a pathetic budget, such as yours. I typically don't pay much attention to bottom feeders and I don't have a whole lot of time to indulge myself in gaming (but I do like them ... just don't have time).
At your price-point, I (admittedly) do not know (for certain) at what point a faster clock beats more cores, for instance.
What I do know is "who does know". A handfull of dedicated pros who live to help you squeeze every fps out of every penny.
And, BTW, I just bumped your thread because I didn't see *ANY* body else falling all over themselves to help you.
If I were you, I would fill out the entire form which is located in the "How to Ask" sticky thread, at the top of this forums main (new build) page ... Like everybody else does. Link to the components you want to know about and state your max budget and your uses explicitly.
Truth is, I have seen a LOT of budget gamer threads and I COULD very easily cut and paste that to you. Sure ain't gonna bother with that, now, DH.
= Rotz-a-Ruck !! =
.. do hope you find someone who is able (and qualified) to serve you in the preferred manner ...
You really don't know how to properly ask for advice on any forum ... DO YOU ?
This setup will play all games on max settings. Your looking at 3-4X the performance in games over the GT 220 or 5750.
*EDIT* Just realized your in the UK, I don't think newegg ships there. But if you look at this setup you can try to find some thing similar on a website that ships to UK. I don't really know any sites that ship outside of the US except frys.com
Fang is certified ... definately a top value tech. No doubts, there.
= Where Eagles Dare ! =
i never asked you for your life story, seriously you're not answering my question you're giving me ways to live my life or something, add a TL;DR to your comments.
I'm only replying to tell you no one cares,
I saw something about budget gamers, if this is budget and not worth it then at least give me something that is
And thank you whitefang for answering my question.
Btw the guy who I made a quote off, you're flaming whitefang, and no one loves you, bai x.
