Graphic Design Spec

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I want to ask you, I want to built my system. I have bought 4 items :
  • Cooler Master CM Enforcer (Case)
  • Thermaltake Tough Power 550W 80+ GOLD (PSU)
  • 2 x Gentle Typhoon AP-15 (For exhaust, on top)
  • Sanyo Denki 120L (Intake, also for H80's radiator, back)

I will use this system over 3-4 years for my education (Informatics Engineer Major) and my hobby (Graphic Design). I need computer which capable to do this :
  1. Graphic Design (primary)
  2. Programming (Java, VB, PHP)
  3. Database
  4. Video Editing
  5. Animation 3D (sometimes)
  6. Games (sometimes, like NFS, GTA , PES and their friends)
  7. Other multimedia program which not use 3D

For VGA card, I will wait for GTX660 or go with non-reference MSI GTX560TI HAWK.

List of my spec :
Code:
procie          : Intel i5 3570K                     
MB              : Asus Sabertooth Z77                   
RAM             : Corsair 8GB CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8R (2x4Gb)   
CPU Cooler      : Corsair H80                             
Fan Controller  : Schtye Kaze Master 5.25"           
Hardisk         : WDC 500GB SATA 3.5" BLACK                  
Optical Drive   : Sony 24x SATA 5.25" DVDRW
VGA Card        : MSI GTX 560TI Hawk OC

My questions :
  1. What will I choose for my Monitor? Prefer LED monitor
  2. Is C8 DRAM better than C9 DRAM?
  3. Will this spec capable to do my works? What will I replace or add on that list?


thanks biggrin.gif

if you're going to be 3d editing id recommend more ram. 16gb-32gb also would get the i7 and use the gentle typhoons for the h80. and if you find it difficult to fit an i7 in your budget id just get a mobo of lesser cost.

Like the above poster said, more RAM for editing, faster RAM helps too, grab an Asrock Z68/Z77 Extreme series mobo and an i7 if possible. GTs will work wonders on that H80 thumb.gif

thanks for your reply. Could you give recommendation of mobo? I prefer a LOT of USB port. I look MSI Z77 GD65 but, it only have 2 USB3 (back panel) and 1 USB3 internal.

and what will I choose for Memory? C9 or C8? C8 is more expensive than C9, is it better or not?

thanks for your reply. I know, but I choose 5400 RPM single fan for radiator. and those AP-15 for exhaust. I've already talk this in other forums, they said it's good.

for your question about the ram c8 is betterthen c9 but its more about speed id say. most say after 1600 mhz u wont really know difference unless u benching.

here is what id recommend: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/a1l5

Processor: i7 3770k: 4 cores + 4threads for your graphic designing needs.
Cpu Cooler: H80: good cpu cooler u chose.
Motherboard: Asrock z77 Extreme 4: 8+4 power phase. 6 usb ports(4 usb3, 2 usb2)
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16gb ddr3-1600
HDD: 500gb harddrive
SSD: Crucial M4 128gb: best bang for buck ssd now. I see your from indonesia so wherever you can find one of these brand of drives: Crucial M4, Corsair Force GT, any Intel drive, Samsung 830, OCZ Vertex 4, Kingston 3k, id get one of those the cheapest you can find.
Videocard: 7850 is better than a 560 ti and for about $20 more. i would have recommended a 480 but i have no idea how the prices are where you're at and the 480 is a real power hog and heater.

wow.. realy realy big thanks for your suggestion thumb.gif

i will change the CPU to i7 3770K
for motherboard, I have look ASrock Fatal1ty Performance and ASrock Extreme4.. But I havent choose yet.. is it worth money to buy fatal1ty? or go with extreme4?

and SSD, which is better crucial M4 or Corsair GT? Which one have Trim feature on SSD? I think I just need 90Gb for my system.. I dont use much of application and game wink.gif

I don't know if this true, perfect partner of Intel is NVidia and AMD is Radeon. And NVidia have stable driver then AMD have. Is it right or not?

No the whole intel is nvidia is wrong. amd is amd as they bought ATI few years back. but it does not matter on which u buy. you can have amd system w/ nvidia stuff or intel system with amd stuff same performance from both things. But it just depends on the person to be honest. I have just used amd and have had no problems yet.. ( nothing against nvidia i can just usually find cheaper gpu's from amd when i set up a budget) and id stick with the extreme 4 as the fatal1ty is the same just branded by the " uber l33t gamer" (fatal1ty is the gamer and what the gear is named after) Well i would just get whatever is cheaper. both are great drives and crucial is very reliable but i can only imagine corsair is as well as they make great products. As for trim goes i have no idea to be honest frown.gif

I see.. I want to buy VGA card when the new GTX660 out. If it's not better than 7850, I'll go with 7850 biggrin.gif
And I will wait for discount of GTX560 or 7850 seriously

I think I will choose Extreme4 biggrin.gif btw, how long warranity of this ASrock product?
I rather to choose MSI, Asus or Gigabyte. any recommendation?
I thought the 3 brands have a good after-sales service

ok, no problem. I will choose crucial 128Gb, the price is affordable than the corsair GT 90Gb
64Gb I think is not enough for me, although 128 is to much =))
since 90gb's price is close 128Gb, I will choose Crucial..

Asrock Extreme4 is a great motherboard, I would try to get that one. If I am not mistaken, Asrock is a sub-company of Asus, so you get Asus quality boards at a reduced price. As far as alternatives, the Gigabyte UD3 or UD5 are great boards as well.

For a SSD, grab a crucial m4, samsung 830 or plexor M3. They tend to be the best for price/performance.
