I wanted some feedback on how the build should progress from the drawing board
Approximate Purchase Date: within the next 30 days
Budget Range: 35,000 taka ~45,000 taka about $650
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the internet, Watching movies @ 1080p on a Phillips 46" LED TV
Parts Not Required: I'll have a Tt toughpower 600W PSU to work with and a Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 250GB Sata drive optical drive is also being recycled form another build...but will getting a new one of i need one .
Country of Origin: Bangladesh
Parts Preferences: ECS H67H2-M, Intel , AMD , MSI, Gigabyte, Asus (i'd want to keep the board size to mATX with a good host of features )
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: 1080p
Additional Comments: Low power, will be 'ON' theoretically 24/7, a dedicated GPU will be needed, one that can give me medium settings for old and new titles @ 1080p
Mobo : ECS H67H2-M Black Series CPU: Can't decide on which LGA 1155 cpu to take Ram: 2~4GB DDR3 Ram @ 1066MHz cos the mnobo doesnt support OC'ing to 1333MHz or beyond (not needed IMO) HDD: 1x2TB WD Caviar Green HDD Case: Its from Transnet and can accomodate a watercooling loop into it in case I'd want to run a loop in the future Keyboard/mouse: A4 techs wireless combo and it has a 15m range Gaming peripherals: Xbox360 controller for PC PSU - 450W comes with the case
Well i was thinking of getting an xfx 5670 passive cooled edition or something a lil' higher like a 6850/6870.For now run the rig with the iGPU before dropping some cash into the dedicated GPU so the CPU is yet to be decided...cos on the HTPC I wouldn't be gaming on it to the max. I have a separate rig for that and an xbox 360 to game on...so I'm pretty much covered on that side. But the titles I would love to play on the 46" LED TV would be PES 2010 (and above), Winning11 (and above) FIFA 2010 (and above).
Will I get into a bottleneck issue with an i3 (if i choose to go 5670/6850/6870) ? if not then which one takes home the prize to get into the mobo?
FYI - I wont need a tv tuner as I have the tele hooked upto cable, besides there's nothing good to watch on it either :S
erm well AMD's aren't that popular here now that intel is swooping everyone off their feets. Bringing them will just mean a more expensive build cos of monopolized traders. I won't be doing heavy multitasking, just have a few programs running in background and maybe play the tiles mentioned above.
I've finalized my build:
ECS H67H2-M black series mobo ---------Tk 8800.00
Core i3-2100 ---------Tk 9800.00
4GB DDR3 Ram STAREX ---------Tk 3200.00
2TB WD Caviar Green --------Tk 11500.00
Transnet watercooling capable case -------Tk 4500.00
but can't choose which way to go with these additional hardware-
errm do you really need 2 tb? i mean 500 gb probally the max that way you can get a better processor maybe like an i5, or better ram. 2 tb is not needed at all. ***** and you dont say your graphics card. if you want to play medium graphics get a gt 240 http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=512-P3-124...
watercooling capable case is not needed if you are not overclocking. you wont even need a case, probally just a wood box. lol. yeh. it is bad if your hardrive is the most expensive. you probally could just use the old one, therefore allowing for a way better cpu or gpu or mobo or ram.
okay, now - i did some thinking and dropped the 2TB for a 1TB. I won't be getting a discrete GPU until I'm running games on the rigg - which'll be a while. That leaves me with 5,000Tk to add on any other hardware - CPU choice upgrade?
but i'm thinking of swapping out my 5770 into this ECS rig and maybe pick up a GTX 580 down the road...for Rig 2 of-course (in member config)
