Thread: Help Me Build My New Comp

  1. #1
    hiya all,

    well here i am with $5000 aus in my pocket and i want to build a rig which will blow the roof off

    basicaly i want the best and the fastest of everything, overclocking isnt an issue, accuracy is as its mainly for rendering video and 3d and online game play,and am thinking about going 64 bit windows

    so if you would be so kind to give me specs on all the important stuff eg

    motherboard/cpu- the best INTEL/ AMD thinking of going dual cpu or the upper level intel range

    maybe this -
    Intel Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology Extreme Edition

    Intel Itanium 2 processor

    or this -AMD Athlon 64 FX-51 Processor

    ram- fastest matched cached ect ect ( here overclocking inst the issue, but pure accuracy is ) looking at 3 gig

    vid card - fastest best ( thinking saphire 9800 xt here )

    case and fans - need it quiet but still cool

    monitor ( lcd 2 i think )

    dvdrom and dvd burner (faster the better )

    audio , prefer 5.1 external box type thing

    network cards . as this will be the main comp in my home network giga cards 1000mb/s

    router 1000 mb/s

    and of course the other bits but these are the bits i need advice on

    just think of your dream comp and spam those specs

    thanks

    and ram, get as many 1024mb sticks of the same brand with the highest pcxxxx u can find, ex. pc4000 but there are higher i think, although it isnt really needed.'

    and instead of the prescott i would go with athlon 64 fx since its 64bit and you said you wanted to go 64bit windows.

    I have read of several cases of problems with 1 gig sticks.
    The brands mentioned were Mushkin and Corsair, but that may be just because they are popular ( hence, more people trying them).

    check a bank site...........

    5000 aus $ is bout
    3846 USD
    3077 euro

    (atm)


    and dont get 72 GB HDD's............ since we ain talkin money here, go for a 250GB/8MB HDD, if you can, get it on a higher speed SATA i think it was........

    and make sure you get the biggest possible power supply........ 2x CPU + (2?) big ass HDD= LOTS of power consumption......... make sure you check this......... you dont want us to laugh bout your 3000 euro PC that dun work cause you dint spend the extra 50 bucks on the more expensive power supply........... (im serious, you have no idea how hard i would laugh!!!&#33

    This is what I am running and I am quite pleased with it. It is a Dell:

    2.40GHz XEON/533, Dell Precision 450 Multi Oreintaion Desktop, 512 Cache
    2nd Processor 2.40GHz XEON/533
    1GB, 266Mhz, Double Data Rate SDRAM, NECC,2.512
    ATI, Fire GL X1, 128MB, 1-2 VGA/DVI Graphics Card
    250GB Hard Drive
    Windows XP Pro
    4X DVD+RW/+R
    42X CDRW/DVD Combo Drive
    Backup UPS
    And lots of cool software.

    You may want to get a better video card if you like, that one does the job for me.

    You can coustome build it at Dell

    Price was about $3500 USD including shipping

    dont.......... i just checked it............... my computer would cost 2x as much if i go with dell (i would get a extra monitor but still, that sucks).............

    u cant get the cheaper AMD, they put in 2 256MB sticks if you want 512 and more nonsense............

    just get your own parts.......... if you got the cash, make it work for you, dont get a "mediocre" machine..........

    its always better to build your own comp, as you wont have to deal with OEM backup partitions, their shitty reinstall cds, having to see DELL splattered everywhere you look, plus opening the case will prolly void any warranty. Plus its cheaper.......did i mention that its cheaper?
