A user in the forum details it further:

I have a 5 year old Dell desktop that is showing it's age and I have been pricing parts for a new pc. I will be building from the ground up sans a case. My current uses are ms office, Online Poker, web browsing, mmorpg games (currently playing Final Fantasy XI, awaiting XIV which will be released in mid 2010), music mixing, photo editing (photoshop elements 7). Here are a few configurations I have come up with so far: Budget Setup ($570) Processor: Core 2 Quad Q8200 ($150) Mobo: Asus P5QL ($80) HDD: 2X WD Caviar Blue 320GB in Raid 0 ($100) RAM: Crucial Ballistix 2X 2GB DDR2 800 ($58) PSU: Thermaltake Purepower 600W ($75) GPU: XFX Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256 Bit DDR5 ($145) CD/DVD: Samsung Black 22x DVD Burner ($32) Mid-range Setup ($702) Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 B.E.

New PC Build DVD/CDR Suggestions

What are the best?

The search didn't reveal anything recent so does anyone have a preference for purchasing new DVD player/writer and CDR? Any drives really stand out or is it just personal preference.

Should I buy each individually or a combo drive? I do burn allot of movie DVD's and also data CD's.

Suggestions on a new build

The purpose of the system would be to be able to play the games of the next few years with a decent graphics setting, and to produce electronic music with a DAW (plus external keyboard). Therefore, I have composed a new system at a website of a Dutch supplier.

Hey guys,

I am considering buying a new PC for home use. Also, if it can be improved for a slightly higher price (or equal at a lower price), I’d like to know about it too.

Since I am not a hardware specialist, at least not to the degree of what can be found on the web, I’d like to get some feedback on whether this system checks out as a nice (working) one. Thank you for all your help and responses! If you need any further information about individual items, just ask.

The system is:

CPU Intel Core i7-970
Motherboard Gigabyte G1 Sniper (rev 1.0)
Memory Kingston valueRAM 6 GB (DDR3-1066 Tri-kit)
Graphics card AMD Radeon HD6870 Black Edition
Sound card ASUS Xonar HDAV 1.3
Power Enermax Modu87+ (600 Watt)
DVD-rewiter ASUS DRW-24B3ST
Casing SilverStone TJ10B-WNV “Nvidia”

Suggestions on new build?

The X58 is based on the LGA 1336 socket whereas the i3 runs on LGA 1156. thank you...

The i3 540 will anyway not work on an X58 chipset based ASUS P6T motherboard. i m planning to buy the following components... i researched about P6T, X58, but those aren't available in my hometown..

i3 540 (processor) ----------------------------------- 7250/-
DH55 (motherboard) -------------------------------- 5500/- (TC or HC not sure. "not happy")
ATI HD 5750 (DDR3 graphics card) ----------- 8600/-
2 GB (DDR3 transcend RAM) ------------------- 3050/-
(prices are in Indian rupee)

please suggest a motherboard alternative to DH55 in that price range only.. your help would be appreciated... I think this board should do fine with your CPU at your price point.

Suggestions for build

Everything listed came with the package except for the Media drive and OS. Do you think better RAM will make that discernible of a difference for her needs? Trinity APUs also love fast memory, especially for the integrated GPU. I found a DIY Combo on Newegg that I think will work pretty well, but am curious what your suggestions are to tweak a little.

Total everything was $400

AMD A6-5400K Trinity APU


GSKILL Value 4GB DDR3 1333 RAM




and I picked up Windows 8 64-bit for it

I think I might need to pick up some better RAM, I'm thinking 8GB @ 1866. Move up to 1866Mhz DDR3 and save a dollar:

Here's a Thermaltake case with a 430 watt PSU:
It's nothing special in term of case or the power supply, but I'd trust it more than a Rosewill unit.

Also thinking about an aftermarket heatsink/fan for the APU considering she lives in a cit...

Need suggestions on a new PC build

I'm going to use it for quite a few years of gaming, and possibly software programming in the future. I think I will, but don't know. I'd prefer 3d, but if it's really not worth it right now, I guess that's an upgrade I can save for the future.
* How much is your budget?

Yes, that's not a problem.
* Will you need any aftermarket cooling, such as a CPU\GPU cooler or a watercooling setup? Note: this is very early planning for this build so these prices might go down as time goes on.(I think the monitor will remain at $1000 though.)

I would consider the i5-2600k.

Planning on having a $3000 budget
* Do you have an Operating System (OS)? Ok, that's all the basic info
These are some basic components I want with this PC
Monitor: 2560 x 1600 or 1440(27" apple monitor maybe) or a 3D TV,however I'd like picture quality over 3D, and if that's pretty bad right now on 3d than I'd rather have a nice 2560 x 1600 resolution.($1000 max)

GPU:Maybe a cfx radeon hd 6950. ($500 max)

CPU: think about 6 core amd phenoms. ($300 max)

Hard drive: Definitely an SSD (256 gb?) with raid for any 1tb or higher hard drive.($500 max)

With the remaing $700 I have, I'd like any decent Blu-ray drive,a case that'll fit all of that,a motherboard that'll support the amd/cfx, a sufficient enough psu,all the fans I'd need
Also if the price stays the same f...

Suggestions for New Build

I used neweggs power calculator and found that I needed 265 watts w/out a video card and around 300 watts w/a high end one. You'll notice also, that I chose to get a MB with onboard video instead of a video card. I do want to change the CPU fan to a quieter one. So, be my guest, and fire away!

one suggestion take an am3+ mobo with the 990 chipset
that way if you want to go amd you can buy the processor you listed
but you will leave an upgrade path for the future

or you can always go with an intel build
the upgrade path will be much better
and you will have less power consumption

but then it is what you prefer in cpu

my last build was amd but my new is going to be intel

But the MB does come with enough PCI Express slots just in case I do later. Corsair Obsidian Series 550D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Need help / suggestions with pc build

I won't need more than 1TB internally, as I will use an external SSD or HDD drive for backup and extra storage. On that note, I am much open to Monitor (1440p 144Hz), gaming mouse and keyboard. Suggestions are very much welcome here!Storage: The two listed on the build setup is partly placeholders.

My color theme is, as said above, lime / neon green and black. I have come to understand that many of my components is the 'ATX' thing, and unless a full tower has noticeably better airflow and lowered temperature, I wanna go with a Mid Tower. The main idea for an m.2 SSD is to have it split into two drives; one for the OS and the other for games and apps. Suggestions welcome!OS: Windows 10 home 64bit is, as far as I know, the best OS for gaming and my other interests.

My idea was to spent a bit more, and get the Samsung - 960 EVO 1TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive as my sole and only internal storage drive. Is it true that mobo's have integrated sound cards, and if so, is the one in this exact motherboard good for sound details when using a headset?RAM: This topic is also a little bit tricky for me. True or? I am under the impression that the be quiet!

Please take the H440 green / black as inspiration, as those colors are my whole theme! :-)Sidenote: Do I have to buy seperate fans for the case, or will those come with them in the package?PSU: Here I am at a hold also. Is having just ONE internal storage drive a bad idea? I know I want at le...

New Build Suggestions!

I am going to be doing some hardcore gaming so this machine is basically for gaming and not much else. Just some suggestions would help. Not going to be doing any OC'ing. Was thinking about EVGA's 512 GeForce 6800 ultras PCI-E of course. (X2)
I like alot of RAM too.

I would like to have dual Graphics cards as well.

I have $6000 to spend on a new build and just wanted to get opinions on what Mobo and what CPU to get. I prefer AMD CPU's.

First build... suggestions?

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 76.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($19.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($174.98 @ Amazon)
Memory: Kingston 12GB (3 x 4GB) DDR3-1066 Memory ($97.74 @ Amazon)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ NCIX US)

Monitor: Asus VS247H-P 23.6" Monitor ($129.99 @ Newegg)

Total: $1167.62
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
This is the case that I'm actually going to get, the one I have listed has an incompatibility with the motherboard.

I plan on using this for some heavy gaming, and ideally I want to run some pretty graphically-tolling games on high/ultra. I've got an old sound system that works pretty well and plugs in through an audio jack, but I may buy a new one soon.

I'm not an expert at computers so I thought that I would get some expert advice.

This is my first build for a desktop ...

My First PC Build. Suggestions Please

This is just a tower build with a price range of about $2000. SLI 7600GT gets beat by single 7900gt. Get the 7900gto, it beats 7900gt and 7950gt.

I will also be investing in a soundcard, another video card for the sli feature, and maybe liquid cooling once I fall into a little more cash, but this is the build for now:

NZXT LEXA ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Intel Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 975X ATX Intel Motherboard
BFG Tech Geforce 7600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
Rosewill RP550-2 ATX 2.01 550W Power Supply
Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Conroe 2.66GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6700
CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWINX2048-3200C2PT
Western Digital Raptor X WD1500AHFD 150GB 10,000 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive - OEM
SONY Black IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model DDU1615/B2s
SAMSUNG 18X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write Black E-IDE/ATAPI Model SH-S182D
Microsoft Windows XP Home With SP2B 1 Pack
ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink


Dont blow your $ on that mobo, get a P965, and a better video card. I haven't had the time to double check everything for compatibility issues and such with school and all, so I am sure there are problems in this somewhere.

PC Build suggestions?

Here are the parts:

Chassis: ($60) - Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow Design

GPU: ($165) - Redeon HD 7850
3.0*16 bus interface

CPU: ($130) - AMD FX-6300 six core

Hard drive: ($130) - Corsair Force GT

Motherboard: ($95) - GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD

PSU: ($60) Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS

RAM: ($50) - Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 Memory Kit

Also if any parts would be wasteful (if a part is too fast for another one to keep up) please let me know. I know its a lot of work but if someone could look over my prospective parts and make sure the things i am buying aren't incompatible with each other that would be amazing !!!

I'm a newbie at building PC's, and would like some help.

Suggestions for a new build

Which board is best? Do you have solid reasons why you want the 140W cpu based upon your own experience? Look for real results. No brand new motherboard or video graphics card is worth the stress and the downtime ...

Three is no "BEST" just a lot of opinions so talk to users who play what you play.

I want to run a 140 watt CPU, but the motherboard I want does not support them, it shows on it's support list only up to 125W CPU's. In my opinion, the power supply and memory are two of the most important creatures in your case, and you didn't even mention them? Same question applies to the water cooled units.

I want to build a new machine, strictly for gaming, music, watching movies and creating some HD video, but there won't be much of that, maybe 2 or 3 times a year. The motherboards I am now considering are these:

GIGABYTE GA-MA790FXT-UD5P (140W CPU supported)
M4A785TD-V EVO (140W CPU supported)
M4A79XTD EVO - Has HD output on it, really like this. I had one WC kit, but it was a cheap Thermaltake when they first came out, thats as far as my WC experience goes. Looking forward to being here and meeting some new people and learning some stuff!

Maybe there is a better MB then all of these I am not even considering sense I don't know about it? Or is that option more geared towards people who want to run a HD TV as there monitor? I am a diehard AMD fan, so even though Intel is pulling ahead righ...

Suggestions For My PC build

my starting budget is 60-65k rupees.

I have come up with a build after some days of reasearch, please tell if i can cut down the costs or if i can buy something better. Im not writing exact names here so here it is
Gigabye Z97 Gaming 3
Intel Xeon
Asus NVidia geforce 750 ti dual fan
WD blue 1 tb 7200rpm
G.Skill sniper 8(4x2)gb ddr3 ram.

Some thoughts from me below:

- Xeon processors are really for servers, not desktops, I would go for an 4690k or similar dependant on budget.
- Personally, for an NVidia card I wouldn't go for anything less than an x60 card (760, 860 etc), its the last two digits that are the important ones from a gaming performance perspective.
- WD Black are better HDDs, better quality and reliability.

Also please tell in INR.

New Build. Any Suggestions

Here it is. Here is the rough specs. CPU: Core 2 Quad Q9400
Mobo: DFI Lanparty DK X38-T2RB
Ram: OCZ Fatal1ty 2X2GB DDR2 800 (8 total Gigs)
HDD: Seagate 7200.11 1TB sata
Drives: 2x LG 22X DVD+-R
PSU: Antec NeoPower 650
Case: Antec 300
and Windows Vista Home Premium SP1

All input is good input.

I dont want to go completely overboard and spend more than I already have set aside which is about $1250 but was wondering if you guys had any ideas on places where I could use improvement.

If for some odd reason you aren't a member of

Need a new MB, or build a new PC. Need suggestions

I unplugged the power cord again and the same thing happened. And of course AMD cpu's use a different socket which requires a different motherboard than the ones I listed. The computer will be used for school and games. i was told this means my cpu is fine.

If i keep my current hard drive can i keep my current windows/office? Except this time the CPU fan was normal. I want to be able to able to play wow on mostly max settings flawlessly, which this current system does until it died today.

So i'm lead to believe my motherboard is just broken. Feel free to give me some build suggestion as well.

your best bet if the motherboard is bad (it likely is anytime I had a computer with those symptoms it ended up being a bad motherboard) is likely to salvage most of the parts from the dell (everything except the motherboard,case, and psu) Get a new motherboard (socket 775 supporting core2duo, intel P43 or P45 chipset recomended), a new case (dell cases have a propriatary front pannel connector that will not work with most retail boards and many of their cases use mATX formfactor which limits board options aswell, New power supply (dell tends to use cheap psus [the last dell I opened was an insperon 530 and it had the same piece of crap 300w bestec psu e-machines used to use] and it is not worth risking your new board to a shoddy psu), Also a new cpu cooler if you reuse your current CPU (again the dell ones tend to use prop...

your suggestions on a custom build


i am going to use it for tons of gaming, and audio recording and editing.

whatsup everyone.

i would like to keep it in the 800 to 1200 dollar area, and just for the tower. let me know what brands you like and everything, im going to build a pc so im taking any suggestions. but let me know about everything, key boards, monitors, etc. i just wanted to ask everyones opinions about pros and cons of everything from processor, mother board, vid card, and so on.

Suggestions for a Conroe Build

About how much money do I need to have to build the best bang for the buck with a conroe chip? I got a video card , 7600 gs 512 mb memory. So ignore my last statement about having a motherboard with AGP.

Maybe its time for a cpu upgrade to Conroe from my 2.8ghz p4 chip.

Can this card stick with my PC or is it better to ditch it for an PCI-E ? I'm going to mainly use the computer for using Adobe Premiere Pro and Photoshop. And of course now and then viewing HD movies and gaming.

I've heard many great things about the intel conroe.

EDIT: I now decided to return that video card with a $21 restocking fee. If maybe I could wait a little longer I might be able to finally build this computer with a conroe chip. So right now I have about $300 to dish out on computer upgrades. How much better is the PCI-E compaired to AGP?

My computer that I'm upgrading uses pc2700 memory, pentium 4 chip which seems pretty outdated. I need the following suggestions:


And any other thing I could be potentially missing. Its an AGP 8x.

I noticed even with my 2gb of pc2700 memory, when I'm rendering files off Premiere pro that I cannot use my computer to perform other tasks.

Gaming PC Build Suggestions?

I’m not sure about my processor choice because I have always built computers using AMD but I’ve heard better things about the new Intel processors. Here is everything in my wishlist:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Conroe 2.66GHz $318.00
G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 $239.99
EVGA 640-P2-N821-AR GeForce 8800GTS 640MB $379.99
MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA $144.99
Thermaltake SHARK VA7000SWA Silver 1.0 mm All aluminum ATX Full Tower $159.00
OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI ATX12V 700W Power Supply $149.99
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro $34.99

I’m hoping to spend around $1800 with a monitor and other accessories, which I’ll have in a month so hopefully some prices will go down a little by then.

Any suggestions? I need this PC for Dynagen (a very CPU intensive Cisco router emulator), gaming , and encoding HD video.

My 1st Build - Need Suggestions & new to TechSpot

Four tool-free 5.25" drive bays, one external 3.5" bay and five internal 3.5" bays. In my signature though there is a link to a website that lists the good and bad PSUs. I'm new to eggXpert and I want to build a PC. The Gladiator supports AT, baby AT, ATX and micro ATX motherboards and features 1mm thick high grade steel.

Gladiator even includes an Intel TAC compliant CPU duct and VGA vent. Very nice choice of CPU btw. Hard drive looks good. I will let someone else help you with your PSU.

Also, because my little generic PC is acting up. Also it voids the warrenty if you use a different heatsink and fan than what comes with the CPU. INTEL

Ok now all I need is a power supply. I am just throwing this up here because you all have always been a huge help I am going to continue researching further myself also. My Corsair (4x1gig) has 4-4-4-12- latency numbers @ 400 mhz. You will get a lot of opinions about your choices...I say 'use what I use'.

I had to trade back OCZ revision 2 for Corsair. It's around $200...=2.66...can O'C well. It's better to get your motherboard and cpu bundle, then select the best ram for the job.

I am already way over budget but where I kinda of expected it to be. And if you guys see any problems or anywhere I can trim the fat or improve the build for little or no money. After you get your motherboard you will need to be sure that your pre selected ram will be compatible. Luckily, Corsair has a good compatibility to product ratio.

Updated; Budget AMD build need some suggestions
