Graphic Design Build Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: August 20, 2010 11:35 AM in Systems Share BlindV August 20, 2010 8:58:58 AM I would attempt this on my own but i honestly don't know what parts work with others and what parts would be perfect for certain requirements.

CPU - 1055T Mobo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... RAM - IMO 2x 4GB would be a very good option... CASE - Antec 200/ 300/ CM 690/ NZXT Beta/ Gamma PSU - 450-500W from Antec EA or TP series/ Corsair/ Silverstone/ Seasonic/ CM Real Power or Silent PRO/ OCZ Mod or Fatality... HDD - Samsung F3 500GB/ 1TB Graphics card - The onboard video of the 880G would be fine, but if you want to do some gaming as well, then GTX 460(If you use Adobe Premier or Aftereffects) else HD 5770... m 0 l BlindV August 20, 2010 9:18:59 AM Thank you for the swift reply. I'd certainly be looking for something more powerful then the onboard card. The HD 5770, i'll go through a few reviews of that. Any specific brands for the RAM? In terms of the cases, i am not a fan of those except the Antec 300, could you possibly recommend some Lian LI cases or similar that would fit those parts comfortably? m 0 l Related resources Is this a decent build for a Graphic Design/Gaming PC - Forum Graphic Design PC Build Help - Forum graphic design pc build - Forum Want to build a $800 graphic design PC - Forum 1st Time Build for Gamer/Graphic Design - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Get the answer gkay09 August 20, 2010 9:25:16 AM RAM - GSKillz/ Corsair/ Patriot/ Crucial are good options...You might want to stay away from OCZs, because lately their DDR3 RAMs are seeing a lot of complaints... Lian-Li's Lancool series are pretty good...they are cheaper than other Lian-Li's but still offer good features... K56/ K58/ K60/ K62 to name a few... m 0 l BlindV August 20, 2010 9:33:42 AM Always liked the Looks of Lian, indecisive on whether i would like to use one or not. Corsair look like a decent choice for the RAM, i'll take a look at some reviews for them. As for the case would either of these 2 fit all those parts? - Cooler Master HAF 922 - Cooler Master CM 690 m 0 l sp12 August 20, 2010 9:56:16 AM Yep. I can personally vouch for how nice of a case the 922 is, but I have nothing for or against the 690 (never seen it IRL). m 0 l Essex August 20, 2010 10:01:39 AM Quote:Always liked the Looks of Lian, indecisive on whether i would like to use one or not.

But try to go for the cm 690 II instead of the cm 690( newer edition). It is easier to do cablemanagement in the new case then in the old. m 0 l gkay09 August 20, 2010 10:02:42 AM ^^ Both the 690 and HAF would fit those parts easy... As a matter of fact, all the above cases that I listed will have no issues fitting those parts... m 0 l BlindV August 20, 2010 10:10:42 AM Thank you for the replies. I am really digging the CM 690 (Taking a look at the cm 690 II now). Of the above listed Mobo's, what one would you personally recommend, each sound decent from reviews so i am a little unsure at this point. m 0 l gkay09 August 20, 2010 10:25:12 AM ^ Any of those are fine IMO...Maybe get the one with eSATA if that matters... m 0 l BlindV August 20, 2010 10:36:19 AM Esata, that was the Gigabyte from the looks of it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l gkay09 August 20, 2010 11:35:12 AM ^ Yes that is also a good board... Actually all the above are fine...so just check the features and select one... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
