Dear Experts ,

Mainly for career perspective to run CPU process demanding applications (60% usage by me for this work) and also for watching Full HD Movies(20% usage) and video editing/converting(20% usage).

After long thinking with strict and strict budget constraint, I have chosen below configuration for my Destkop PC.

Please advice if this configuration is acceptable, please provide your valuable suggestions/feedback :??:  . Thanks you very much.


Configuration as below:

1. Intel Core i5 760 , 2.8GHz, 4 Core / 4 Thread
2. DH55HC Intel H55 Chipset motherboard
3. 4 GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM (Two 2 GB)
4. 500GB SATA Seagate 7200rpm, 32MB Cache
5. <Still Searching Graphics card just for video editing and watching Blu Ray movies / Full HD Movies for budget of USD $50>
6. <Still searching what ATX cabinet to choose for budget of USD $45>


Also, if you can advise me on point 5 & 6, i would be more and more happy.....

GT 240 or the GT 430 would be fine for Blu Ray Movies.

For ATX Cabinet : I would suggest the Storm Scout, but you can spend a few more dollars for the Rosewill Challenger.

Hii Altair and Vindictive, Thanks,

but in my local shop Storm Scout or Antec are not available.
The names i heard available are iball, CoolMaster, Zebronics, Corsair and few others.


Please let me know which to choose and what should be the wattage capacity of the SMPS.

cant pick a psu till you pick a gpu.


Hi Vindictive,

RAM brand i am planning is to get Hynix or Transcend., But you please suggest me a good reliable and faster one and i will definitely choose that.

GPU not decided yet, bcoz i am still confused which to buy for that strict budget of $50 - $60.

Why i want graphics card is bcoz
1) My processor i5 760 which i am planning to buy doesnt have integrated graphics memory.
2) Resolution i don't know, i am planning to buy monitor of 18.5 inch or 20+ inch, i don't know the resolution card to choose with respect to monitor.
3) I have to watch Full HD / Blu Ray movies
4) Also for video editing(just only in rare cases)

Never heard of em. lol.
Mushkin, Corsair, G.skill are all good RAM suppliers.

like i said I can't suggest a gpu under $160ish because I know nothing about them so sorry there.
