Hello, I'm new to the forums. I'm about to buy a new computer and my budget is: 780$.
So far gathered with the help of 3 different people 3 different specs. I would like to tell me which
is the best spec out of these 3.
My computer requirements:
*Play the newest games with the highest settings
*Often usage of heavy programs (such as: Photoshop, Flash, Adobe aftereffects etc')
*Watch movies and shows on HD quality.
*Compatible of surfing the net.
*A quiet computer

Dump the first one, crap card and i3 no real use.
What monitor are they to be used on? Do you need an OS?
Are these being built for you? As far as I can see you are being robbed and need to make your own, below is a build better than all the above
First of all thanks for your honest reply. I appreciate it very much.
There is one major problem. I'm planning to buy the computer in my country but each part that is mentioned in your spec costs about 120$ more here. Maybe I can ship the computer from the USA here, that will be great. The only problem will be that I will not have warranty. And if my computer will need a part replacement it will be hard to send it to the USA. I really want to buy your spec.
Now couple of questions and clarifications.
1) Regarding the monitor, I was hoping if you can suggest one to me. Not more than 22" if possible.
2) I do need an OS. But I don't know if I need 32BIT or 64BIT. I don't know the difference.
Besides that, if you had to choose between #2 and #3 which would one would you pick? and Do you have any suggestions how to improve the spec. that you chose between #2 or #3?
Here is the website.. I doubt that you will understand the language http://skypc.co.il/BuildItems.asp?page=187
You can use google translate to translate the page to English. Another thing in mind every 1$ is equivalent to 3.5₪ so when you gather up all of the components make (including monitor) make sure that is says down no more than: "4500₪"
Here is an improved version of the spec. #2:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 945 Box
MotherBoard: Gigabyte GA-MA770T-ES3
Hard Drive: Westren Digital WD5000AAKS 3.5" 500GB SATA2 16MB
RAM: G.Skill DDR2 4096MB (2048MBx2) 800Mhz CL 5-5-5-15 PQ
Graphics Card: HIS ATI Radeon HD5770 1024MB DDR5 PCIe
Burner: LG GSA-GH24N X24 SATA DVD
PC Case: Thermaltake Wing RS 100
PSU: Seasonic SS-500ET 500W
Monitor: LG 20" W2043T 5ms LCD
Anyways here is my final (I hope so) spec.
I improved it very much and I would like to hear your opinions about it.
If you please could check the compatibility between all parts..
IMPORTANT QUESTION: I was told that if Im not planning on any OC I shouldnt take 4GB of memo.. So i took instead 2 Memos of 2GB and it is much cheaper.. What is the difference?
ANOTHER QUESTION: The Pc-Case and PSU I took are they good for my needs? I want a quite computer with good air circulation.. that Pc-Case comes with 4 vents..
LAST QUESTION: The g-card i took is Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5770 Phoenix 1024MB DDR5 PCIe instead of Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5770 Vapor-X 1024MB DDR5 PCIe.. what are the differences.. because the phoenix is much cheaper..
I changed the Mobo, Pc-Case, DVD, Memo, G-Card and I want them to get along..
Also if 500W PSU will be enough? and is Monitor good for my needs aswell as compatible for the other parts?
Actually if you not looking for record clocks: DDR3 1333 would suffice and well if need be depending on how many case fans come with the case you could always add in after market case fans ^^ That Seasonic is a quality 80+ certified 500 watter and build looks compatible and good to go
