I have searched the archives read these threads on homebuilt-buying-guide, guide-to-choosing-parts and buyers-guide and also used google. Based on all these readings and my own preferences I have came to understand that a budget build will be fine, I am not thinking of any upgrades. I created this thread because in BestConfigs I did not find anything like AMD Budget Homebuild or something. From searching I listed down 2 CPUs, can check the CPU selection of mine and recommend other parts please:
Approximate Purchase Date: After 10 days
Budget Range: 30-35,000 INR (INdian Rupees)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: only these usages: Browsing net, Programming, HD-1080p movies @ 6000kbps and read tomshardware
Whats the deal with XMS3 based RAM ? and will 1333 MHz be good ?
I see from here that CX400 has Active PFC and this guide tells me that hooking an Active PFC based PSU on Stepped Sine Wave UPS is bad idea and pure sine wave based UPS are very expensive, can't spend 9K on that. So I think a non-PFC or passive PFC based PSU with stepped sine wave UPS will be cheap and good too:
As anyone who does Linux development knows, going multithreaded is usually as simple as typing “make -jN”, where N is the number of parallel jobs that you want to execute while building your app (normally N = number of cores/processors + 1). At $200/$300 per processor, that would make the X6 a bargain-basement priced high-power workstation (Intel’s current six-core offering, the Core i7 9xx series, is actually faster than the X6 but also costs +$1000, out of the reach of mortals and students like myself).
So for the same $$ i would always hit more cores hehe
