Hello, i am attempting to build my first computer and needed help in seeing if what i picked out is compatible and would work if i built it. Like i said at the start, this is my first build so i want to make sure that everything will work with minimal trouble. I tried myself to see if they are compatible and to me they checked out. Thanks to anyone that will help, it is much appreciated.
I would up the i3-2100 to an i3-2120 for $5 more. You don't need 4 RAM slots or crossfire support on your motherboard with dual channel RAM and a single gpu unless you plan to upgrade in the future. I would go with the HAF 912 instead of your case. Everything else looks fine.
Sorry for posting over here. I didn't wanted to start a new thread for this again.
I also want to build a new decent 'gaming' system but my budget is around 30,000INR ~ 600$(excluding lcd,keyboard,etc). I don't want an i3 rig because it has only 2 cores if i am not wrong. I thought of getting the C2Q instead the q6600 G0 one with 8M cache.
I have shortlisted some of the components
Processor : Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0( Lucky if i find the 6600 now)(I'd surely overclock it to 3.4ghz and max 3.5ghz)
Motherboard : GA-EP45-UD3L ( As i heard its the best for overclocking, but it would have been better if i could get anything with SLI support)
PSU : Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500W SMPS
GPU : help needed, don't know what i should go for( please advice something that won't bottleneck with C2Q)
RAM : Corsair PAIR DDR2 2 X 2GB 800MHZ Desktop Memory( if something better and cheaper please do advice)
Cabinet : Cooler Master Elite 430 Black Mid Tower Cabinet
HDD : Seagate 1TB SATA Desktop 3.5 inch Internal Hardisk
CPU cooler : Don't have any idea with this so please help me out with this
If i have missed out something please let me know. I want a pc for playing 2011-pre 2012 games. Thanks !
The i3 performs better than q6600, due to better technology, 32nm,etc.
I have uploaded two builds for you. They have been sourced from flipkart & techshop. Both sitesare reliable.
The combination of CPU/GPU should allow you to play mos games without hiccup, although overclocking will be limited to GPU only.Have a look:
CPU: i5-2400 -11232/-
I pretty much liked the 1st build. But is the motherboard good enough for gaming ?
Actually i am getting the C2Q q6600 for like 6000-7000(110$) so i thought of not goin for i5 if the q6600 overclocked performs same like i5.
By the way, what FPS will i get with the 1st build on GTA 4 or crysis 2 ?
