Hey, I have been hunting for parts to get a good configuration and have finally narrowed down to this, am building this exclusively for gaming and might be overclocking in the future, so please share your opinion on this spec..
Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-750 Processor (2.66GHz, turbo up to 3.2GHz, 1333MHz FSB, 8MB Cache)
Motherboard chipset: H57
RAM: 4GB (2X2GB) DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz Memory
Hard-Drive: 500GB SATA 3.0Gb/s 7200 RPM 16MB Cache Hard Drive
GPU: GeForce 9800GT Graphics Card 512mb
Also recommend on a good heat sink for this setup.
How much do you have to spend on your budget? I have a 9800GT and it works quite well, but I'm upgrading to dual GTX 460s (one is arriving today), and those range from 200-250 per card, depending on brand, memory, speed, etc.
Hey, just wondering will ATI Radeon HD 5770 be compatible with the above mentioned specs?....will it cause any sort of bottleneck?....and is it good for gaming?
Yes the HD 5770 is a very good card, but I would actually recommend you get something a bit more powerful since you will be gaming at higher resolutions. Maybe a GTX 460 1GB or a GTX 465 or maybe a HD 5850, they are all good cards and will play games well
H57 board choices are limited and not a good deal. The Asus board is very expensive. The Gigabyte board is cheap but lacks features. The MSI board lacks even more features and don't get me started on Intel.
