How is my new PC build?.......... any advices?

This is my system configuration:

Core i7 920 processor
4GB DDR3 RAM
Nvidia GTS 250 Graphics card
22" TFT Monitor
WX58BP Workstation Motherboard
Cabinet: Cooler Master 690 with 2 fans
Logitech Keyboard & Mouse
2.1 Speaker Creative
450W Cosair PSU
1 TB SATA HDD...
LG DVD RW...


P.S: Some of the components that I requested, were not available...so I went for the best bang for buck...(i.e.) ATI 5000 series graphics card and other x58 motherboards weren't available...

How is my rig???
Does the system require more PSU wattage?
All together costed me $1200 (Rs.55000)...Is the price very high for this config?

  1. Great system dude... :bounce:
    In India components are rare and also 1.5 times the actual cost...
    Every component is the best bang for buck...
    My cousin in India got the same rig for $1800 (Rs.86000)
    And about the PSU, I'm not sure...think u'll need to change it...
  2. Power supply may be OK considering it is from a good brand; but on the weak side nevertheless.
  3. I'd get a 650W power supply if I were you.
  4. I agree with the others in regard to the power supply if you haven't already bought one. I'd play it safe and go with a 650-750 watt PSU just in case you decide to upgrade the graphics card in the future.
  5. Hey guys, that's a quick reply...
    What do you think about my Nvidia GTS 250 Graphics card...
    I had a choice between the following...
    Which is the best bang for buck???
    9800 GT ($125)
    9800 GTX ($140)
    9800 GTX+ ($150)
    GTS 250 ($144)
    HD 4850 ($200)
    HD 5850 ($333)
  6. Your monitor is 1680x1050? HD 5770. But you can use the GTS 250 as well it's the best bang for the buck in that list.

    Well, my monitor is 20" inch
    What about HD 4850?
    Will GTS 250 make a loud noise?
  8. 4850 is roughly equal to the 250 but I see it costs much more.

    How much is HD 5750 in there? Care to post a link to a site that sells components (select the video cards section)?

    Wait. Is this PC for gaming? You don't need an i7, the i5/Phenom II X4 are very good for that. And you can get a bigger monitor and a good video card. The video card is important in gaming, the CPU not so much.

    The HD 5750 is about $210...and they don't have the stock...
    My budget for graphics card is $150...
    The PC is mainly for Animation and Rendering...and a bit of gaming sometimes...
    Please don't recommend Quadro cards...they are way beyond my budget...
  10. So, I'll go with the GTS 250...
    It is cheaper, on par with 4850, even breaks some benchmarks of HD 5770, quiet and a cool runner...

    Except that if you get the i5 (or an i7 8XX) , in a year or two there is a good chance you won't be able to upgrade it.
