Hi All, i want to start my first build, i will use for watch movie, 3D, maybe for games...i want a good computer to be not in the very top but good for few years.My Budget €1200
Pls let me now if you nou any hardware issues/ problems or if i need to change something in this build.
Thanks very much.
Intel Core i7 2600K
Asus SABERTOOTH P67
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL9 (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9) (Maybe later another (2x4GB)CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9)
Corsair Professional Series Gold AX750
Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H70
Pixmania Radeon HD 6870 - 1 GB GDDR5
Crucial m4 SSD 64Gb
1 HDD 2TB
Thermaltake Kandalf VA9000B case.
+ LG BluRay 10X Writer CD/DVD SATA
+ AEROCOOL Fan Controller - V12XT
would rather take aircooling, the corsair hydro series tend to make an annoying buzzing noise from the pump. I had the h50 and replaced it with my aircooled thermaltake cooler and the buzzing noise is gone (dunno for the h70 though)
anyways, further you'd have a good system i believe. try to make room in your budget for socket 1366 cpu's if you can. you'd want a good pc overall and sometimes use it for gaming, i'd step down on the videocard, take a 6700 series videocard and maybe an after market cooler. you shoud bare in mind an extra 100 euros ;)
If ur planning on 3-D movie viewing better change to Nvidia and get 3-D glasses. Also need a 120Hz monitor
For the RAM (G. skill, patriot, OCZ, corsair) they are the reliable brands, Pick which ever one is the cheapest since latency on ur ram is 9 u don't care about low timings. FYI lowest latency for DDR 1600 right now is 7.
H70 is okay but in terms of performance a thermalright archon or venomous x can out perform it. (if u do a custom 120 rad with a pump and cpu block it would eat the H70 alive)
Seasonic is also a good brand psu (same as corsair just re-branded for corsair). Best brands are corsair, seasonic, enermax, and antec. So u can get any of those if there cheaper.
As for the video card highly suggest u buy one that uses a after-market heatsink.
Personally, I think you would be better off getting a better video card (eg 2GB HD6950) and dropping the CPU down to a i5 2500k. This of course depends on what games you intend on playing, but you won't notice much difference in games between the i7 and i5. However you will see a difference with the video cards, assuming that you are playing on a reasonably high resolution (1080p +).
i will go for Antec LanBoy Air case, and i will change the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H70
to ANTEC KUHLER H2O 620....it this ok, what do you think?!!!
do you now any difference between hd 6870 reference design card and the others brands hd 6870?!!!
what do you recommend:
Pixmania Radeon HD 6870 = €166
ASUS Radeon HD 6870 = €254
It worth the price?!!!
Thanks very much.
I also found just swapping to AMD for the CPU and getting a Phenom II x4 or x6 will save you almost half the money and you could put that on getting a good 3D monitor/tv.
And get the Pixmania Radeon HD 6870 it will be fine if mostly all you are doing is video then will save you money just remember AMD Cards are optimized now for AMD CPU's.
