Help me build temp rig to my 1st future rig.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys i was trying to build my very first rig, can you please help me on buying which best and affordable for my rig?

First of, i would be building my dream rig over a temporary rig. I'll explain my temporary rig: It will be used temporarily for office use, some photoshop editing, word processing and browsing NO GAMES aside from online games on facebook tongue.gif then i will upgrade this rig to be use as VIDEO EDITING machine in the future (future like 4-6 months after the temp rig).

Heres the idea, i will be buying first a
- CPU case (cm scout 2 already have)
- Power supply
- 256gb crucial m4 (which i already have)
- and a Monitor (asus mx239h already have)
as these are the components that does not need to be compatible or at least these are the hardware that i may not have to replace.

So now i have a cpu case (cm scout 2), ssd, a power supply (not yet sure) and a monitor (IPS since will use it on video editing)

On my temporary rig, i will be buying these hardwares (in 1155 setup, in the future i'd like it to be 1155 too):

cpu = Pentium g620
$47

mobo = ASRock B75M-DGS VSGIGAL mATX U3S3 Motherboard (B75M-DGS)
$60

ram = GSkill Sniper 8GB (4GBX2) DDR3 1600 / F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2
$70

psu = HEC Cougar Power X 550watts
$61

gpu - PCI-E , ECS GT520 1GB-64bit DDR3
$30

Total = $268

Now once im done with this temporary rig, i will be replacing the Processor and GPU which i will give to my younger brother so he can setup his own rig through those hardware smile.gif

Now my problem is that, does the MOBO will support my upcoming processor which is 3770k?
well i know on its compatibility list that it is, but i wonder if it has drawback like xmp or whatever technology bottle neck it is. Will it run the 3770k without a problem even if i overclock it in the future? cause if not i will retain the board. I am only looking for a board that is compatible with 3770k and run it with no problem. Also i dont need a lot of PCIe slot, i only need at least 1 as i would not be doing an SLI (never) also i need a sata 6/gbps for my ssd and USB3 (for my usb3 powered passport) which ASRock B75M-DGS already have. I know if it has a lot of slots it would be expensive, so please find me a cheap mobo if i have to replace it with same specs.

Then the RAM, when i change the motherboard because of the processor incompatibilty i know i have to change the RAM too so which do you suggest? also if i dont have to replace the motherboard then 8gb (2x4gb) is fine with me but if i have to i would be using 16gb (2x8gb) so please suggest a better ram for the mobo.

3rd problem is the PSU, why its a problem? because i will surely replace my GPU and I only have 2 candidate.

1) GTX 660TI (very much suggested by video editors)
2) GTX 780 because of having 300+ bit

well i had gtx680 before but its kinda low powered and i think have no real life difference over gtx660ti on after effects rendering or if it has it would not be noticeable like few seconds only, so i only choose between 660ti or jump to 780. So if i decide to go on whichever of the 2 i need to have a better PSU, in addition in the future i will also be using 3 monitors (asus mx239h) so i really need a good psu, NO SLI by the way.

Guys i really need your help on these. Also please give me tips on whatever i miss or let me know if i forgot something. tongue.gif

Thanks a lot and hoping that someone could help me.

afaik u need a mobo with a z77 chipset to overclock in the future when you get a 3770k.

if you don't want to overclock ever, you can buy any mobo with the features u want that supports the processor, if u do find a z77 chipset model. since you wont be looking for SLI you probably wont have to spend much more on it, say $100 roughly for a good mobo with 1 pcie 3.0 x16 slot.

there has been some epic discussion of power supplies here (around middle of thread):
First Intel build ($2000 Budget) Advice welcome.

and this thread should help you with general parts ideas:

Ok so I read through your first post and have a couple of questions

First up

How do you figure you need a better PSU to accommodate more monitors? MONITORS HAVE POWER CORDS!!! Why does everyone forget this?

Second, why don't you purchase the good GPU now? Screw your brother its your money anyways lol.

Ok so here is the build I came up with for you

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/13YzY

CPU: Intel Pentium G620 2.6GHz Dual-Core Processor ($63.98 @ SuperBiiz)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: MSI Z77A-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($124.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($62.05 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($64.98 @ Outlet PC)
Video Card: Asus Radeon HD 6450 1GB Video Card ($29.98 @ Outlet PC)
Power Supply: Rosewill Hive 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $505.96

Ok so I say you purchase the CPU cooler now and have some fun with that Pentium before you bid it farewell. I also picked out a good motherboard that will work perfectly for your later upgrade of the i7-3770k. This motherboard also has great on-board sound, for the price its pretty much all I recommend. For the RAM, I picked out some 1866 simply because it will work better with your video editing programs. I also got you a 1T HDD because they are cheap so why not? This PSU will work for your final build, more then enough power and its modular.

If you want to buy your GPU for the final version of this build now, I can highly recommend doing that, and I suggest this GTX 670 http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx670dc22gd5 for it. It costs less then a 680 and it is reported to overclock to speeds of about an overclocked 680 so thats a good deal in my opinion.

Any questions just ask!
