I recently ordered a new PC and would like to get your opinions in it. I am busy studying mechanical engineering and need a computer for CAD (computer aided design), CFD (computational fluid dynamics) but mostly just gaming and a little bit of photo editting.
The components are as follows:
CPU: Intel Core i7 930 2.8 - LGA 1366
Motherboard: Asus P6X58D-E (LGA 1366)
Memory: 2x 2Gb Kingston HyperX DDR3 1800Mhz (Might upgrade later to 6 or 8Gb)
Graphics Card: Asus Nvidia GTX 460 1Gb DDR5
Hard Drive: 2x 500Gb Seagate SATA 2 HDD 7200rpm
Optical Drive: LG 22x Lightscribe DVD Writer
Power Supply: Coolermaster GX 750 Watt
Chasis: Gigabyte Setto 1020 Full ATX Case
Software: Windows 7 64-Bit
And a second question:
I went on some site earlier this week and saw that the memory standard for the motherboard (Asus P6X58D-E) are DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066. Should my 1800Mhz cause any problems?
Any comments or opinions would be greatly appretiated...
Hmmm... a little late for that now. Picking it up tomorrow morning.
Asus South Africa are having major problems importing at the moment and I need the computer fairly urgently so I went with what they had in stock
Psu just fine, memory fine, X64, yeah install 64 bit, will use the 4 gb.
Dont go more than 4 gb though , i see you posted this, going over 4 gb, wont be necessary, no game or general app use more than 4 gb..
I got 6 gb, never goes over 3.5 gb usage..
I had a limited budget so I rather went for better components than a big case. I'm not really bothered with what the case looks like, as long as the components inside are good. But thanks for the idea. They do look quite cool though
