Hi Everyone, I am not a techy, and I prefer AMD, purely because I cannot see how Intel can justify their costs, compared to AMD.
I am presently building a Desktop server, for hopefully 10 diskless clients max, these clients will be running mostly office products on a virtual desktop, , not sure which one yet, and as iCafe clients, part-time, so my question is, if anyone can help, with sensible answers please, ??
Here is my budget plan,
ASUS M5A88-M (AMD)
Cooler Master GX 750watts (i like the warranty, 5 years)
Lian Li PC A04 with four 120mm Fans, not three. (already bought)
2x WD 750GB Caviar Black (already bought)
Corsair Force Series 3 60GB SATA 3 6Gb/s Solid State Drive.
Antec KÜHLER H₂O 620 CPU Cooler
GSKILL ARES 16GB DDR3 1600mhz Cl10 (2x8gb) cl10 Low Profile F3-1600C10D-1
CPU, ??? Needs to be a budget AMD, but fast and reliable, ???
Inno3D GTX550 Ti 2gb ddr5 192bit hdmi (For personal Moderate Gaming)
Any advise or critsims would be appreciated, thank you.
I would recommend the 7750 since its very low power and generally good priced online at least. They should give you the performance of the 550 ti but at about half the power consumption. If you want a bit more power the 7770 is a good card which also has low power consumption.
Thanks, I am looking into the phenom II x6 at the present, the 1090T BE, I am keen to play BF3, I have the disk, but my laptop is only dx9. Here in the philippines, the 6850 is cheaper than the 7750 or 7770, should be able to play BF3 on medium settings, ??
the g630 won't OC and will definately not be enough. Its just a dual core and your server is going to be split very far. Even the i5 will probably be slower than the phenom II x6s because the many clients your server will service will use the 6 cores of the phenom. I don't think its worth using the g630 which will be only half as fast as an athlon or pentium quad core.
Have bought a Phenom II x4 965 BE and an asus M5A88-M board, can you advise me if there is any un-lockable cores on this processor, ?? If yes, will they be beneficial to be un-locked, ?? If no my plan is to wait and see what AMD release next, with 8 cores, does anybody know, ??
