i5 Build, Silverstone TJ08B-E Build Log

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Parts started coming in and build log is coming!!



Hi, I am going to re-write this as I realize it's QUITE MESSY.

This machine is mainly used for photo editing.
Photoshop CS6, Batch Editing Programs, Custom In-house software

THIS IS NOT MY MACHINE, It's for a VERY close customer of mine and I'm not doing this for-profit. Therefore I turn to you guys for your assistance!

Budget is $800.00

Parts purchased total: $663.00

Balance: $137.00

Case:

SilverStone Temjin Series TJ08B-E Black $99.99 + $13 S&H

NZXT Source 210 Elite $50.00 + Shipping $60.00

Could someone help the difference? I like the "aluminum like finish" because it gives the PC a much more beautiful look and feel. It's also the best competition with the SilverStone.

Is this "new" model really any better than the older one? It kind of hurts the budget.

Media Card Reader:

Atech Flash U35 $40.00

ACCESSORIES:

Good laser mouse with precision.
Decent KB


Media Card Reader and Mouse are optional and if they are not in budget (which they do not appear to be) it's fine.

I'm not seeing a processor in the budget.

But, since its 800, and you already spent 285, that leaves 515.

NZXT Source 210 Elite - $50
AsRock Z77M -$90
Corsair CX500 - $50
EVGA SC 650ti -$170
Seagate Barracuda 1tb 7200rpm 6Gb/s HHD - $80

That's 440, which leaves you with $65. I left the room in case you did forget the processor in the calculation by mistake. If you didnt, the extra 65 will cover shipping and leave you with a little bit left for a profit. I chose that case because it'll leave you with plenty of room to work with while being fairly small. The AsRock Z77M board gives you the benefit of being Z77 over H77, (not to mention it matches the color scheme). The Corsair CX500 is personally my favorite PSU in that area of PSUs on the market, the newer model doesnt have any improvement that I know of, other than the fact that a few of the cables are modular, which I dont think would make a big difference in this case, with these components. I figured the 650ti will be able to handle Photoshop well, and that the improvement compared to the 660ti isn't really worth it in this case. I threw in the Seagate because I figured 240gb isn't really going to be wonderful for saving old work, and that he can use his SSD to render the images and such, then save old work onto the large HDD.

If he doesnt want/need the HDD and you have the processor included in the price, I would spend the difference upgrading to a 660ti.
If you did forget the Processor in the price, I would drop the HDD for it.

Thanks for your suggestions I've updated the OP to reflect the NZXT 210.

NZXT Source 210 Elite - $50
AsRock Z77M -$90
Corsair CX500 - $50
EVGA SC 650ti -$170
Seagate Barracuda 1tb 7200rpm 6Gb/s HHD - $80

The HDD is not needed because the customer has several servers that hold data. The most data that would be on the SSD would be ~ 60GB including working files and applications.

I think the 650Ti from MSI is a better choice due to the higher stock clock speed and from what I've read
http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Adobe-Photoshop-CS6-GPU-Acceleration-161

There is no improvement in PS performance going over 1GB.
Also the difference in performance between 650ti - 660ti is almost nonexistent.

650 19.6 to 660Ti 18.35

660 scoring a 18.45. That would lead me to believe 650Ti would get ~ 19.5

In the original post I forget the CPU, when I redid the OP I saw that and have now added it. Please check the new OP and let me know what you think. I don't need the modular PSU and the Corsair 500 is one of my favorites as well!

So this is what the build looks like now:

Case: Silverstone TJ (sorry I fell in love)
ODD: 2x ASUS DVD+RW - $40.00
HDD: Intel SSD 240GB 330 Series - $175.00
RAM: G.Skill 16GB - $70.00
MB+CPU: i5 - 3570K -Intel DH77EB mATX- $266.16 (microcenter)
PSU: Corsair 500W - $50.00
Video Card: MSIMSI Power Edition N650Ti - $145.00

Total w/ Shipping: $858
The budget works with $58.00 over.

Guys any comments?

Personally I'd like to go with the Silverstone Tejmin TJ08B-E but it is 113.00 shipping which is an extra $53.00 and would require a different motherboard which could add about $10.00.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163182

Has anyone any experience with this case? Is it worth it over the NZXT?

Also, I'm going to check microcenter really quick if there are some bundle deals. If I can get a board + CPU for under 285.
The customer I know was looking forward to the nvidia 660 but the card is $230.00 which is an extra $85.00

So I didn't really do step by step build log as I was just swamped with customers while I was doing it but here is the finished result after one day. It's on the diagnostic table now testing memory.







The case is one of the best I've ever used. IT doesn't have that sublty I'm used to with Lian-Li but the damn thing is amazing. Super clean
