Hoping whether, anyone can help me out here.
I intend to assemble the following machine in Kolkata for the purpose of Programming/Development/Gpaphics & Video Editing using AutoCAD/3DS Max/Fluent/BeamProp/MatLab and many more.
Please give your suggestions, my Budget is around 40.5K+4%
Is this a good design? I designed it keeping in mind future upgrades and software requirements. Future upgrades include another block of 4GB 1600MHz RAM, AMD Bulldozer core FX processors using the AM3+ socket, when they come out and have proven their worth, a second Sapphire HD 6850 card that I can crossfire with this one.
Plz suggest any modifications that you may have....
The ASRock 970 Extreme 4 is not available where I live, and besides it is over my budget.
CPU cooler is definitely on the cards but as an upgrade. I do not plan to overclock now. (Just hope to God that the AMD stock cooler is capable till then).
I'll take your advice and put the 1TB on my upgrade list. I hope to make this rig last for the next 3-4 years, as I doubt there would be any more serious breakthrough in Si technology to break the golden 5GHz barrier without OCing
I checked the AMD website. Both the g850 and the 6790 are capable of being crossfired with the crossfire bridge. 6870 aint available where I live.
I'll take your advice on the PSU
MoBo : ASRock P67 EXTREME4 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0
3 PCIe 2.0 x16 slots. SLI at x8/x8. $150 - Shouldn't cost more than 7500rs.
There is a cheaper version but that only supports SLI at x16/x4.
