It's in rupees btw, since I recently moved to India. The build can't exceed 40,000 Rs. (around $800), by more than around 300 Rs. (like $6 lol). I'd like to know whether this is a good build or not and also I have a choice to make. I can either buy a 1366x768 monitor with inbuilt speakers, but it's 18.5 inches so it'll look like crap but I'll save around 1000 Rs. and I can upgrade to a Radeon HD 6870 1 GB. I do want to run all my games on ultra, and I'm not sure if the current build can manage with this monitor which is at 1600x900, the other monitor would be http://www.flipkart.com/viewsonic-18-5-inch-led-va1931w...
That is the website I'm buying all my parts from, so please help me choose what I should do. Thanks in advance.
That's the worst cpu you can possibly choose for a gaming rig.
Even a Pentium G or i3 dual cores would be much faster.
Otherwise it looks like a compatible build.
Yes, so I heard...I've decided to change the processor to the AMD Phenom II X4 960T since it can be unlocked to 6 cores and the mobo to ASUS M5A78L-M LX Motherboard. Also, I'm wondering whether I should just OC the processor to 3.8 GHz or unlock to 6 cores and then OC, I've heard that I won't be able to OC to as high a clock speed. Comments? Also, can you please answer the other question? =) Thanks
