Hi,

You all know abt Intel i3,i5 and i7 processors. The greatest features is intel HD GRAPHICS. Many told that the graphics is not so powerful. I am going to buy intel i5 750. since there is no Intel HD Graphics i wish to equalise that with Graphics card.

So please tell me which Graphics card is equivalent to the HD GRAPHICS IN INTEL i3,i5 processors.

More about : intel graphics graphics card

A graphics card that you buy will more than likely be much more powerful than the HD Intel graphics in the i3 and i5 6-- CPUs only.

Depends on your budget. If you only want an image on the screen then go onto ebay and get a cheap PCI-express card. For about £90 in the UK you can get an ATI Radeon 5750 card which will play most games at above 30fps at 1280x1024 resolution. Or blow you life savings on a 59-- Radeon or new nVidia 4-- card.

Intel HD graphics are an absolute joke and are behind allmost any, up to about the geforce 6700 graphics card, any card thatyou can buy in the market is better. If you have plenty of money go for the gtx 480 or the Radeon 5850.

Ok i can understand. But you did not be specific. I asked this question because i am in confusion which processor i should buy. i5 750 or i5 661. My view is that if get a Graphics card similar to that of Intel HD integrated Graphics in i5 661, then i can get the same equivalent of graphics in i5 750

i5 661 is a dual core CPU. i5 750 is a quad core CPU.
Intel HD graphics is roughly equivalent to HD 4200 IGP like you'd find on AMD 785G motherboards.

Can you explain why it's important to match Intel HD Graphics when soooo many better options are out there?

Well, My questions are

1. Why Graphics card is necessary for intel i5 750 and motherboards like Intel DP55WB, DP55WG and Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2? I heard that if i use intel i5 750 and Intel DH55TC or DP55WB motherboards?

Because they don't have a built in graphics card, that way you can support any brand of graphics card you would like instead of being restrained to the brand of the onboard graphics.

So if i use intel i5 750 and Intel DH55TC motherboard will i be able to play NFS Most wanted game. Because i played that game in my P4 2.26GHZ and just 756 of RAM.

Intel DH55TC is not suitable for i5-750. There would be NO graphics - no video chip.

2.66Ghz to 3.2~3.4Ghz is fine with stock cooler. You make adjustments in the BIOS to overclock or use an included motherboard utility program in some models of MB.
Intel motherboards are a poor choice for overclocking.

No i never overclocked and got a chance too. You guys really rock. Any compatible motherboard under 125$ for intel i5 750

May i know what is stock cooler? Is this the brand or the thing that comes along with the processor by intel?

A stock cooler is the standard cooler that comes with the cpu, if you want some low level overclocking, you'll be fine with it, but if you want to push it to the limit you will definetly need a better cooler. As for the MB, just look around on newegg, the socket name is the LGA1156. Here is a link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...
However, there are a couple of low level brands that you will want to look out for, if you have any questions about your choice don't hesitate to post.

It's the included CPU cooler that comes with the i5 750.




Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2 would be a good motherboard choice.
Look over this hardware guide @ Bit-Tech
You might be able to fit an after market CPU cooler into your budget. Always a good thing when overclocking.

No. I said it for the example. As i am not a hardcore gamer and dont know any games other than this..... These are the games that i played three years back.

What about power supply. If i overclock little and NvIDIA Geforce 9500GT 512MB, 240 WATSS enough?

240 No, You probably want to go for at least 400 watts and get a high effeciency model, they will have the 80+ bronze, silver, or gold specification on it.

If you're looking at the Nvidia 9500GT I don't think you want to be looking at an OC'd i5 750.
It doesnt have the makings of a balanced gaming system.

My suggestion is for you to go over to the Homebuilt Systems Forum
Look at the sticky topic "*How To Ask For New Build Advice*", - start your own topic there, answer those questions and let the experts help you out setting up a good balanced system.

HI PSU is subject to availability in my region. I am also not aware that one should have good PSU. Only after reading various threads in Tomshardware i came to know abt PSU.
Suggest one. Pls tell me is Graphics card required for this configuration since that motherboard has onboard Graphics

Sorry..... thought you had finished your shopping.

Gigabyte H55M-S2H does not have motherboard integrated video.
You'll need to add a video card or use a CPU that has an included video chip like the Intel Clarkdale dual core CPUs, i3 530/540, Core i5 650/660/661 or Pentium G6950.
CPU is the small chip.... GPU is the big chip on this Clarkdale CPU.


If the Nvidia 9500GT the only video card you'll be using? Any Geforce GT 220s in your area? If so you can use a smaller PSU; 350W of a quality brand. If you think you want a slightly better gaming video card you want to look at good 400W PSUs I think. A really nice gaming video card and you'll want to think about 500W PSUs.

If you list the make and models of PSUs available to you we can steer you onto a good one.

The rest of your parts list looks good.

Is it necessary to apply thermal paste on the processor if i didnot overclock and use intel Stock cooler?

Yes it is ,very much so, if you don't even without overclocking you will destroy your cpu. The thermal paste is the contact medium between the two and basically is what transfers the heat between the two.

Not necessary to apply thermal paste on the processor.
The stock intel cooler comes with thermal paste already applied on the bottom of the heat sink. It's not necessary, and would probably cause the CPU to run hotter, if you did add more thermal pasted directly on the CPU.

In this picture of the stock Intel cooler you see the 3 gray patches of thermal compound on the copper heatsink. That's all you need.

For a specific answer you'd have to name the exact models of MBs to be compared.
In general, for gaming, and talking about P55 for i5 750 CPU;
#1 Gigabyte & Asus
#2 Asrock & MSI
#3 Intel

First don't buy Intel....

ASrock is somethisng between Intel and MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS

And i don't agree with WR2, MSI is a much better brend of Gigabyte (especially with socket 1156 and 1366)

1.ASUS
2.MSI
3.Gigabyte
4.ASrock
5.Intel
