Ok, my mac and i have reached the end of our relationship (absolutely atrocious computers they are), and ive decided to build myself a PC. Can yu guys tell me if this is an o.k build for Visual Basic programming and medium gaming? I dont need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, case, DVD drive or operating system.
What: Low cost pc for light duty programming and medium gaming
Dont need: Monitor, Keyboard, mouse, OS, case, DVD Drive
My monitor is an old VGA LCD that i had left over from my last pc. im not sure the resolution. when i hook it up to my mac it seems to work best on 800x600 (its really old)
I looked at the 5770, i like it but the 450 seems to be only a bit less powerful and has physx. i wouldnt use eyefinity, but i want to be able to run dx11 games and play games like BBC2, Napoleon total war on pretty high settings.
thanks for the response
also the 250's can be unlocked cant they? so i think ill stick with it for $30 less.
^ I have not seen many people reporting a successful unlock, but its worth a try...But for that you have to change to the mobo that I have listed as those only have the ACC option, which unlocks the cores...
So in general, if you want to unlock, then go with boards which have south-bridge SB 710/ SB 750/ SB 850...
Graphics card - I dint notice you had selected the 450...stick with it, it would suffice for your resolution...
Total: $519.99 including tax (have i mentioned how much i hate the HST?) I can afford $19 extra and if i wait abit for a sale, the PSU has been know to hover around the 420-$40 mark with the mail in rebate.
Just a final question, Why does nobody ever use NCIX to suggest parts? I, not sure about America but in canada they have more parts that are more often than not cheaper than newegg.ca!
