I need a little confirmation from the experts here.
I am going to be using this build for mainly web develoment and coding and everything that comes with that. I am planning on using dual monitors, and Windows 7 64 bit. I also do some Adobe CS5 work, mainly photoshop, nothing incredibly intensive, but multiple files being edited at the same time. I am mainly shooting for as cheap as possible, while still being stable and 'comfortable'. So if you feel I am overspending in a certain area feel free to point out some alternatives or if somethings are incompatible, I'm a pretty simple guy as long as it works. well and consistently. (I am very new to system building)
Llano? it will beat a 5670 and i think it matches the i3 (i'm not 100% sure so don't quote me). if you can afford it, Corsair CX-430 for the PSU, samsung spinpoint F3 for the hdd and Mushkin enhanced silverline 4gb 1600mhz for the ram, but this is a bit more... lastly, if you can, get the i5-2400, that will probably benefit you more than the other upgrades i mentioned...
Thanks for the help. Three questions:
- How do I know what PSU will work, how do I know what wattage I need?
- Will the i5 2400 really make that much more a difference? Do you have a specific example of how it would improve my build specifically for what I will be using it for? I've i5 are much better for games.
- What about this DIY combo - http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I...
How does it compare to what I laid out above? I would just purchase a comparative gpu separately when the price was right.
