What websites will you be buying from?
November 11, 2012 11:08:57 PM

I'm buying from "emmi.rs" Btw here is what i done alone http://tinypic.com/r/2up6yir/6 When you enter emmi.rs at upper middle it will be "Konfigurator" and after you click then you chose parts what you need and price will come out. At the link i sent the price is about 54.000 which is 478€ when i convert to euros. So 1 euro = 113dinars. Is all good together on that build i made? And please can you make me 2 PC's one for 400€ and one for 500€ because my friend want a PC for 400€. Thanks in advance

I came up with this for 540€ - a bit over budget but it will be a pretty decent system for gaming:

Case: Fractal Design Arc MIDI - Rs. 8.999
PSU: Seasonic S12 II 520W - Rs. 9.060
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H - 8.760
CPU: 3.2GHz Intel Core i3-3220 - Rs. 11.649
RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz 1.5V - Rs. 4.039
HD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST 7200 RPM - Rs. 4.999
Optical: Sony DVD Burner - Rs. 1.719
Video Card: Power Color Radeon HD 7770 - Rs. 11.499

Total: Rs. 60.720 (540.43 €, $670.94 USD)

Yeah I know the RAM is high profile but I couldn't really find any other alternatives using the configurator on that site.

Lol, I was just putting together basically the same exact build. This is exactly what I would go with.
November 11, 2012 11:36:37 PM

The case,psu and mobo are overpriced. Maybe you could put that money into gpu? Did you saw this build http://tinypic.com/r/2up6yir/6 I made it. Is it nice? mobo good? I also said if you could build me a 400€ PC and 500€ PC. But please don't go over a budget

The build you made has a bulk OEM PSU which is only 400w and won't be good.

I couldn't really tell what parts you were using but I'm guessing the GPU was a 7870? I think that would put a build way over budget. I know having a good GPU is a good idea but you don't want to skimp anywhere else to get it. The G860 is not a good CPU for gaming, the i3 is.

It's still a Seasonic and they make quality power supplies. Not sure about the bulk ones though.

I saw a few recognizable names - but Seasonic was the only one worth anything.

It just isn't, and you can't run a GPU without a good CPU to support it. It's better to balance out everything.
November 12, 2012 12:02:55 AM

I heard someone said that G860 is good as i3. Is the Seasonic ss-500et any good for 60€? And please can you make me one PC for 400€ and one for 500€ separate? Thanks

That's completely false. I think whoever said that most likely doesn't know what they are talking about - the G860 is the very low end of Intel's Sandy Bridge line. The i3 is a mid range CPU that is much better than that one. If you don't want to spend a lot of money and get good performance maybe consider the AMD Phenom II X4 965 - that will be better than the G860.

Here's a comparison: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/404?vs=677

I'll have to play around with that site to come up with builds, I'll post a couple later.
November 12, 2012 1:31:08 AM

Ok, so create 2 PC's: one for 400€ and one for 500€. When you will be picking PSU pick Seasonic ss-500et and when you are picking Case pick cheaper one. As for HDD at least 500GB. Thanks :)

So for the 400 € build I'd suggest something like this:

Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 - Rs. 4999
PSU: Seasonic S12 II 520W - Rs. 9060
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-A75-D3H Socket FM2 ATX - Rs. 8000
CPU: 3.8GHz AMD A10-5800K - Rs. 12.530
RAM: 8GB Kingston Hyper X 2 x 4GB 1600MHz 1.65V - Rs. 3899
HD: 320GB Seagate Barracuda ST 7200 RPM - Rs. 5499
Optical: Samsung 22X DVD Burner - Rs. 1799

Total: Rs. 45786 (407.61 €)

And for the 500 € build I'd suggest something like this:

Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 - Rs. 4999
PSU: Seasonic S12 II 520W - Rs. 9060
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77X-DS3H - Rs. 8760
CPU: 3.30GHz Intel Core i3-3220 - Rs. 11469
RAM: 8GB (2 x 4GB) Mushkin Silverline 1333MHz 1.5V - Rs. 3759
HD: 320GB Seagate Barracuda ST 7200 RPM - Rs. 5499
Optical: Samsung 22X DVD Burner - Rs. 1799
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 - Rs. 12.499

Total: Rs. 57844 (514.97 €)

Differences are the 500 € build includes a stronger CPU and video card. The A10 on the 400 € build includes an integrated GPU that's much better than anything you could buy separately on a low budget.

Why did you put so much expensive PSU? Is this good? http://www.emmi.rs/napajanja-i-dodatni-ventilatori-napa... Its Rs. 2.000 cheaper. And can u find cheaper mobo for i3? For maybe 5.000 to 6.000? And i said 500GB HDD minimum.


Yeah that's fine - the one I included is certified and rated 80+ and you definitely do not want to get something that isn't.

I couldn't find a 500GB hard drive on that site that wasn't a green drive and that will be a major bottleneck. Maybe try this: http://www.duocom.rs/index.php?c=1050&p=4090

You can't go much cheaper on the motherboard without sacrificing features. And that's usually something I do not advise.

You lose USB ports, SATA ports, RAM slots, and things like that, and to me the only thing that will ensure system longevity is to keep all your expansion options open, even on low budgets you don't want to limit that because that will shorten your system's lifespan.
November 12, 2012 9:58:21 PM

You think is it good? Maybe 380W isn't enough for 7850?
November 12, 2012 10:16:45 PM

Btw this is what i made http://tinypic.com/r/5f16bm/6 the Total is 493€ but its quad core and decent GPU(6870) I can drop i5 and get i3,h61m board with 7850 1GB for 480€. But i think i5 is more future proof and i will not see any CPU bottleneck right?

No - 380W will be underpowered for a 7850, you need minimum 500W.

That's not bad. The 6870 is no longer worth purchasing - the 7770 is newer, uses less power and is much faster.
November 12, 2012 11:23:49 PM

You think that all is compatible here http://tinypic.com/r/5f16bm/6 HD6870 is stronger than 7770 but yes 7770 is newer and uses less power. Any thoughts on GTX560? Everyone say it is fail why?
November 13, 2012 1:14:01 AM

How much is cheaper motherboard for HD7770 CF? How much power uses 2x7770? Is it good to pick i5 with HD7770 now and buy another 7770 later?
November 13, 2012 7:39:59 AM

380W is well enough for an i3 and 7850.

Dual 7770's will require more power than 380W, you'll need 500W at least.
November 13, 2012 7:37:51 PM

What about this?

Its 499€. But i don't know if that motherboard can support that CPU. I know that i3 will perform better parried with 7850 but i just really don't want a dual core because it will not gonna last long. I barely have this budget so i don't want to make mistakes with dual-core. Something is wrong with my PC and guy who know about PC's he can't tell what is wrong -.- I didn't played games for 3 years like a man because of PC issue. Maybe i could just grab i5 and use hd2500 but i don't know how good that IGP is.. Maybe you could provide some benchmarks of it to me? It will be much appreciate. Thanks

That looks pretty good, you could probably get away with an i3-3220 and I'd rather use a full H77 motherboard - B75 is meant for business machines and has a lot of older legacy ports that you'll never use. Hitcahi HDs are also not the most reliable, you're better off going with something from Western Digital or Seagate instead.
November 14, 2012 12:13:59 AM

Doesn't dual-core i3 sounds to be not future proof? i5 will last long till next upgrade. I think it is easy to change just GPU in future but not processor and motherboard right? I know that if i go with i3 i can get myself 7850 1GB easy but time will pass soon to upgrade CPU-MB.

You don't need to upgrade the motherboard if you go from an i3 to an i5
November 14, 2012 5:51:41 PM

Why would i switch to i5 later for like 2 years? I will have 1155 socket motherboard and it will not gonna be compatible with newer i5's. Is it better now to get good processor or good gpu? So i3 and 7850 or i5 and 6870?

If your primary use is gaming then GPU definitely.

Most games usually use between 1 - 2 cores at the most. Only like strategy games like Civ V would use more than that. Yes it is true that it is easier to upgrade CPU than GPU so if you want to do that, that is fine I guess.
November 14, 2012 8:18:56 PM

Yes my primary use is gaming. I will post 3 builds just from my head but i don't know the exact cost, so here are 3 builds that i was thinking about. But first i want to tell that i already said here that i will be building PC for my friend too.. maybe i will be at 400€ like my friend is so i want you to keep that in mind. If i can't afford 500€ PC i will need to go for 400€. Ok here are builds.

Here are 3 build's for me if i will be able to squeeze 500€
1st:
LGA1155 Dual-Core G860 62€
LGA1155 H61m 35€
HD7870 Sapphire GHz Edition 2GB 200€
HDD SATA3 7200 500GB 55€
Cooler Master 430 44€
Seasonic SS-500ET 60€
2x4GB 1600MHz Corsair Vengeance 35€
DVD/RW Samsung SH-222BB/sata/black 15€
Total: 506€ Comment: Outstanding GPU but a little poor CPU.

2nd:
LGA1155 Dual-Core i3-3220 100€
LGA1155 B75 44€
HD7850 MSI 1GB 150€
HDD SATA3 7200 500GB 55€
Cooler Master 430 44€
Seasonic SS-400ET 44€
2x4GB 1600MHz Corsair Vengeance 35€
DVD/RW Samsung SH-222BB/sata/black 15€
Total: 506€ Comment: Little stronger CPU then first build but also weaked GPU.

3rd:
LGA1155 Qual-Core i5-3330 150€
LGA1155 B75 44€
HD7770 1GB 113€
HDD SATA3 7200 500GB 55€
Cooler Master 430 44€
Seasonic SS-400ET 44€
2x4GB 1600MHz Corsair Vengeance 35€
DVD/RW Samsung SH-222BB/sata/black 15€
Total: 500€ Comment: Very good CPU but very poorer GPU also.

Ok that was build's i was thinking in my head over and over again. I could just get 1st one but sooner or later CPU will start to bottleneck but GPU on it is pretty good. The i3 build is balanced between CPU and GPU, and 3rd PC is CPU more oriented. So what you guys think? If i go for quad core i will be good for long time on CPU side but not GPU and if i go i3 or celeron i will be good in reverse way. Probably i will change CPU/Mobo in 2 years if i go with celeron or i3. And if i go with i5 i will change GPU for about same time 2-3 years. What are your suggestions? To tell something important also.. i will be gaming at 1280x1024 for some time until i get 1080p monitor for some time(4 months) Thank you all for helps :love: 
November 14, 2012 8:36:25 PM

I like the middle one best.
November 14, 2012 9:51:32 PM

Reasons for that? i just wanna hear your opinion :) 
November 14, 2012 10:46:25 PM

I think it strikes a good balance between GPU/CPU.
November 14, 2012 11:18:13 PM

Isnt it the same celeron and i3? Both are dual cores right? And what would you suggest for 400 euros build? Sorry for so many questions
