If u want to OC get a z170 board and a 3rd party cpu cooler as well.

Next is the case u using can fit which one then buy the boards that fits.

Anything @1440p or above resolution and 60Hz or more refresh rates.

Anyway I dun even know your budget and needs , it's very hard to give u reco.

I mean like almost any monitor that specific can be the best of its own.

Trading PC with 3 monitors

Hi guys,

My com just crashed.

Currently i have 3 x 22 inch monitor setup (16:10) and would like to retain the monitors. using
1 x DP
1 x hdmi to dvi
1 x dvi

What rig can i build with a budget of $800 sgd? inclusive of OS and possibly 16gb ram and OEM OS. How much does OS cost these days?

Thanks!

I will get new HDD. i believe my HDD crashed.

So with $800, i will get:

CPU + MOBO (i3 is ok)
1TB HDD
16gb RAM
Casing
PSU
Graphics card (necessary? or can i use onboard?)
OEM OS

I still think u will need a GPU cos onboard most likely need to get h170 to have 3 display working. I mean if onboard GPU is good for you den use it.

anyway since its ur hdd spoil den change hdd can already. why build another one?

nv i forget that u need DP, which need to really need to go find, but dun think that there is a lot of onboard have dp.

Not sure about that, because, i dun usually build a gpu with more than 3 display. but u can try to source for the gpu and see if capable of doing so or not.

Ok thanks a lot. Just one question.
There are also graphics card close to $100 that can support 3 monitors. Why do we go for this one that costs $200?
