then any motherboard and cpu recommandations for 8800gt? not looking at SLI, $500 caps..

Hello?? YOu got $500 budget and you are still going for 8800? Come on, there are new GPU chipset out already. If you are a die fan for nVidia, go for GTX 280 series or ATI can use 4870 to compare..

I am sure both cards wont cost more than 500 but performance wise would be much better than 8800gt.

ic3 ED, don't panic. I remember going into shock when i first saw Fuwell's pricelist.
For example, Asus P5KPL-AM/PS is the name of the mobo It uses a G31 chipset. It supports up to a 1600Mhz Front Side Bus(it wil also support 533,800,1066,1333Mhz FSB), has Gigabit Lan (GBL) and is micro ATX (mATX)Micro ATX motherboards can fit in a ATX case but ATX motherboards cannot fit in a microATX case.

for processor Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 is name, 2.66Ghz is speed, 1066FSb has 3MB of L2 cache and comes in a box

Hi everyone, I'm new here, heard that this forum offered great help, so I decided to join and seek some much-needed advice :). This would be my virgin attempt at assembling my own desktop. I would probably be heading down to Sim Lim Square to get it assembled, after I get a rough idea of the products I'd need.

I'm an about-average game user, so I don't need superbly top-of-the-line products and such. My main purpose for the desktop would be for it to run most games like COD, World of Warcraft, Sims3 smoothly without hiccup, and one that hopefully would be able to carry me into the next couple of years - service-wise.

I was wondering if anyone would be able to list down the products (with prices thx) I'd need to build my desired desktop.

Currently keen on the i5 and i7 processors so if you could somehow fit that into your recommended list, I'd appreciate that.

My budget: $1400-$1500

Haha, the cheaper the better for me. Would you be able to suggest a build?

batuchka 13-09-2009 04:00 PM

Biostar TA785GE + P2X3 710 = $264 (Bell)
2 x 2GB KVR 800 = $78 (Video Pro)
Hitachi 500 = $75
Samsung SATA DVDRW = $31
CM 341 = $59
Andyson F550 = $89 (COMEX)
HIS HD4870 = $179
$765, up to 1920 x 1080 gaming
If this is too much for your games can tone down to 2GB RAM, Acbel E2 470 and $139 Palit HD 4850 for up to 1650 x 1050 gaming for well under $700 hehe

Definitely a E8500 will be more than enough.

For $600++ anything less than a quad does not make sense IMO

HI guys, i not an overclocker ...actually i dun know how...:s22:

how intel chip is exp n the mobo is quite outdated,

so if i m to get amd x4 945, would it be better to get a ddr3 or ddr2 mobo?

actually in case should i just add the $20 to get a x4 955 as well?

X4 955 is definitely a better buy than the fastest X4 965.... $75 is not worth the extra 200Mhz increase.... which is something that can be easily done with X4 955 if not guaranteed to be able to OC at least that much.... save the $75 for a nice cooler is better. :D

Assembling a Midrange PC.
 
Hi all,

I'm trying to assemble a mid-range PC (CPU only). I don play many games. Mostly use my PC for work, and watching loads of videos. Downloaded or streamed ones also watch. My budget is about $700. Hoping that my PC can last for about 3 to 5 years.

Are there any recommendations of what are all the necessaries that I need? I tried looking through the forum but I could not find what i need, and also cannot understand many of the things i read newayz. :s13:

Thanks so much for ur help in advance.

batuchka 28-12-2009 10:44 AM

Simple template for you

A2X3 425 + ECS 785GM-M = $246 (Bell)
Link 437 mATX case w/o PSU = $36
2GB ddr3 Crucial = $69 (Video Pro)
Samsung SATA DVDRW = $31
Seagate 160 = $56
Andyson G480 = $59
$487

From here up to you to add more RAMs, bigger HDD, etc

Need setup/template help
 
Hi,

I just need a entry level setup, any templates to recommend?

I use my PC for the following uses:
-Download torrents
-Watch movies in mkv, rmvb, mp4 & avi format
-Surf net, play games in facebook
-Play no graphic intensive games, except FIFA10 only
-Occasional MS Office usage

Really need you guys' recommendations, I'm new to DIY and on slightly tight budget.

Regards : )
