Help me choose components!

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 
Hi!
Good Day dear overclockers, It's time to order my new computer!

I'm going to do my best to get the best power for about 1 550-1 850. dollars rolleyes.gif

I usually work with programming, Video editing, Rendering, CAD and Gaming.

But the big question is? AMD or Intel?

AMD gives more "Bang for the buck", Meanwhile Intel gives more power.

I would like to see a shopping cart in the black and yellow colors also with the NZXT Switch 810, Or is it good for air cooling?

Another question i also have for you guys? Should i go for linux or could i have my W7 Ulti on this Computer to my new one?

Thanks for the help!

1. Intel is not always more powerful, with this build i would grab and AMDFX 83** CPU

2. For compatibility's sake use Windows, however if you wish you can multi boot with different operating systems

3. Where are you from? You mention dollars but from which country?

Since your budget is over 1500$, Intel all the way.

For the operating system, stick with Windows, because most games and softwares are compatible with Windows, but may not be on linux.

I recommand you to get an i7-3770K or a i7-3930K (or wait for Haswell), and get a pair of GTX 680s or 7970s depending on the software you use. If you need PhyX, then Nvidia is the only way. Otherwise AMD is cheaper.

If you want, I can try to find the parts for you, but you gotta tell me which country you are in.

If your doing a lot of rendering and editing..I'd go with a i7. I think you can use your win 7 ult with your serial code for up to 3 computers...

Do you shop online for parts? or local?
If you shop online please give us a link of a site you can use so we can set a compatible parts list for you.

edit: oh and by saying dollar you mean USD, right? Otherwise I can't imagine building a PC for ~$250.

edit2: Here's a build i quickly threw together for a bit over $1500, it's AMD based because i see no point of wasting money on intel when most of your applications are probably going to be multi-threaded. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Y8Zj

If you have the money for a toupee (perhaps make a down payment with the money you saved not paying anything to Microsoft) go with a Linux distro for sure. You will come out much more educated if you use Linux, but you will have pulled out a lot of hair. You did not actually mention any overclocking. If you are the learning type buy a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P (or the DDR3 model) and learn 90% of what those commands in the BIOS mean and do, the time spent will be worth it .I say learn oldschool overclocking on a machine that does not always have to be up for getting your work done. At times you can make some errors both with overclocking and with Linux that take a wee bit of time to straighten out
