Hi people!

I can use some of your advice to build my own system as m bit confused with technology.
Basically I want a powerful pc used for games and multimedia + rendering 3d Max models.( I am not hardcore gamer but yeah I do play a lot of high end games)

Am planning to buy Intel i5 750 with Intel DP55WG motherboard.
plus 4 GB 1333 ddr3 transcend ram modules(2x4) and nvidia GT 220 graphics card.
500 GB seagate sata hdd.

My concern is should i go with i5 750 as the processor? it does not support HT and m not sure if it is required..

Also should I go with nvidia GT 220 or some other card based on the above config?

Thanks for any help :)

1. Don't double post.
2. Fill out the form in the sticky. Link in my sig.
3. For gaming that GPU is insufficient.
4. 3d max benefits from the additional threads. Whether that increase is worth the price increase, $80 CPU, $50 Mobo $60 RAM, is up to you.

The GT 220 isn't much of a gaming card. It's o.k for low end gaming, like the sims or older games, but I wouldn't go playing Crysis on it :D . Anyway, go with at least a Radeon 5750 for gaming. If you have a low budget then you may want to consider going for a cheaper i3 CPU, or go with an AMD build, to shift more money towards your GPU.

No you don't need hyper threading for gaming. Having 4 cores is better than having 2 cores with hyper threading like the lower end i3s and i5s. If you're doing 3d rendering or video encoding then going with an i7 with hyper threading would matter :D .
