    It would help if you told us the resolution of that monitor, it could be 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1680x1050, point is we don't know.

    Personallly I would grab an Athlon II X4 before that Phenom II, it does fall behind a little in a lot of games, but the newer games that truely take advantage of 4 cores will perform better on it, so will future titles.

    Also plan on getting anohter 2Gb ram in the future, 2 will be enough for a budget build, but you'll want more sooner than later.
  2. 1400*900 is my native resolution
  3. Alright, the 5750 will be powerful enough for that running most any game on high with a decent amount of AA. I'm still going to stand by my comments about the cpu/ram, but I'm sure others will pitch in.
  4. I agree with Lone on the cpu front, I'd recommend a X3 435 or 440 for gaming at your budget,
    Stretch that budget just a touch for a 5770 gfx card
    and if your on Win7 or vista, use a flashdrive for Readyboost, fill in the ram gap a little until you can afford another 2Gb
    Moto
  5. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Systems by Mousemonkey
  6. I would go with the RANA x3 440 for the extra core.
  7. 1. Tu kitna aur thread start karega ek hi din me? Teen to maine dekha.

    2 Aur tu kharid kya raha hai? Athlon II X2 440? or Phenom II X4 955? Yeh pehle decide kar le.

    Tu kharid bhi kuchh raha hai ki nahi?

    Aur maine tujhe ek aur thread me bhi kaha ki bharat me AMD ka daam Intel se Zyada hai, yaar!!!
  8. So athlon , phenom or rana?
  9. The RANA is an Athlon II.

    In order of CPU preference of the choices it would be:

    1. Athlon II x3 RANA 440
    2. Phenom II x2 555 BE
    3. Athlon II x4 XXX

    Umm...Rana is an Athlon.

    I'm sure you meant which particular processor.

    The thing is you can't afford a 955 with your <25,000 budget. The 440 is your default choice. In any case, AMD is more expensive here than Intel.

    Going with an E5400 on a G31/41 probably makes more sense. Costs 'bout 3000 for the CPU, and 22/2300 for the board.

    Btw, your monitor should be an 18.5" W1953T from LG. That's what I use anyways. Costs around 6000 most probably.

    Logitech for KB/mouse for 6-800 & creative sbs245 for 400-450 should do it.

    Theek hai na?
  11. Is my motherboard ok? Or Is there any alternative motherboard in this price of msi 740g p25?
  12. msi 740g p25 - looks good for your needs. Would definitely cost a lot more here.

    BTW, stop advising/confusing people. You don't even know the difference between an Athlon & a Phenom. And what's more, you just asked "So athlon , phenom or rana?"

    So obviously, you're not in a position to advise people.

    Ha...Ha...Ha... :lol: :lol: :lol:

    You split me open, yaar. Such a great joker! :bounce: ROFLMFAO. Most people in this forum are Americans, Brits, Aussies, etc. I think they can tell who knows proper English & who is your typical annoying call center idiot.

    Anyways, that's off topic. I asked you not to disseminate WRONGFUL information on this forum. What you're doing is malicious and unwarranted. So ask for advise in your annoyingly gnawar English, but stay from confusing people with blatantly false and wrong information.

    Ha...Ha... I'm sure, you have'nt even heard some of the words in the paragraph above.
