Graphic Design Build Tags: New Build Systems 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.

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... | Report abuse 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? | Report abuse 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... | Report abuse Related ressources First build for video editing/music production/ graphic design - Forum Build Advice For Graphic Design Computer - Forum Graphic Design Build - Forum First Build - Graphic Design /Minor Gaming - Forum First time build for graphic design (CS6) and light gaming - Forum Ask the community Publish 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 | Report abuse 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). | Report abuse 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. | Report abuse 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... | Report abuse 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. | Report abuse gkay09 August 20, 2010 10:25:12 AM ^ Any of those are fine IMO...Maybe get the one with eSATA if that matters... | Report abuse 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... | Report abuse 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... | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Graphic Design Build> Related ressources: Forum[$500-$700] Check my computer build for graphic design ?
