Upgrade my PC

Hello Everybody,

I want to upgrade my pc. I don’t need for gaming. My job is usually on computer mostly. So, I want High Performance PC which runs mostly 24x7. So please advise me which processor & motherboard should I take?

My Current System has:-
Motherboard: Intel D102GGC2 Motherboards
Processor: P4
RAM: 1GB
Hard Drive: 150GB + (350GB External drive).

1) I want 4TB Hard Drive in my system.
2) Is i5 or i3 processor sufficient for high performance & which one?

My total Budget is Rs 23,000 for processor & motherboard.

So please advice according to that for a long term.

  1. hmm...

    23,000 Rupees = $503 US dollars.

    I'd get a pair of Samsung F4 2 TB drives
    An AM3+ board
    An Athlon X3 processor
    4GB RAM
    and an HD6770
    Put it in with an antec, corsair, or xigmatek psu around 380-450W
    and an inexpensive case to your taste

    He doesn't need a gaming build!


    Take out the GPU and use the integrated graphics, if you can pay a bit more for a motherboard consider the Z68 chipset motherboards for better encoding speeds and smart response technology.
  6. ohh.. if you don't plan to game on the PC then remove the GTS 450 from the list and the price will come down near 21,000rs.
  7. yep. the 2100 build shoudl be great. If its not too much more, consider a 2150, which has slightly better integrated graphics.
  8. ^^

    *2105.
    It costs 1000rs more and has a better HD 3000 inbuilt graphics.
  9. HD2000 vs HD3000 is so minimal that it is not worth it.
  10. ^^

    7-10 FPS while playing high-end games at 1680x850.
  11. I would doubt that significant as they rate HD2000/3000 on a par with a Nvidia 6600. Though I have seen stranger things happen.
  12. I am buying i3 2100 processor.

    Here available motherboards are Intel DH67VR, Intel DH67BL, & Intel DH61WWB3.

    Asus H61 is also available but i am told above MoBo is gud with I3 2100 processor.

    2GB or 4Gb DDR3? Which one i should go for? What it will help if i chose 4GB instead of 2GB?

    I have only 15 inch LCD monitor. will it run properly with i3 processor or am i supposed to buy higher inch LCD too?
  13. that monitor will be fine, if a bit small. For a windows 7 64-bit Operating system, you want at least 4 GB, preferable a paired dual-channel kit.
  14. Those shopkeepers will tell you to buy Intel motherboards because they get better commissions from Intel.
    Get the Asus H61 board.
    My DH61WW died within 15 days and currently returning to me from Intel, Bangalore. They replaced it.

    2GB or 4Gb DDR3? if i chose 4GB, then will it give high performance?
