Is this Configuration Good ??

Hello Folks, :bounce:

This is my Configuration,
According to my budget and requirement, as I'm an Artist (Animation/Games) :pt1cable:

Intel DH67CL Motherboard
Intel 3.06 GHz LGA 1156 Core i3-540 Processor
Corsair Vengeance 8 GB RAM (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10)
Geforce GT 440 GT (Already own it)

Software i use: Maya, 3Ds Max, Zbtush, Adobe product etc

So, Please suggest me that. combination of these product would be great OR not?
Also, suggest me about SMPS that according to my above mentioned configuration, which SMPS (power supply)(low budget) would be great.

This is kinda urgent, as I'm planning to buy these by tomorrow.

Thanks in Advance :D

  2. ^ yeah, what rolli said, bad cpu/MB pairing. Plus, that's a weak cpu for what you are doing.

    One more Clarification, i need.

    I just saw that Motherboard (Intel DH67CL Motherboard) and Processor (Intel Core-i3 2100) do not support RAM more than 1333

    But i want to use "Corsair Vengeance 8 GB RAM (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10) " with 1600 (4GB or 8GB)

    Is this possible OR not.

    Please help :(
  6. The ram will run fine on 1333MHz with tighter timings than on 1600.

    Sorry but i didn't get you.

    Is that mean, I can use 1600MHz Ram on above mentioned Motherboard and Processor?

    OR

    1333MHz Ram will run much better than 1600MHz Ram on the above mentioned Configuration?

    Correct me, if I'm wrong.
  8. Yes.

    You can use it and it will run just as well as 1333MHz ram!

    One more question,

    That motherboard and Processor supports upto 32GB Ram with 4 Ram Slots.

    So, Can i use one 8GB Ram (1600MHz/ 1333MHZ)

    OR

    should i use TWO Ram with 4GB (1600MHz/ 133MHz)

    I'm planning for Total 8 GB ram for now.
  11. I would use 2x4GB for total of 8GB in dual channel.
