PC for office use, i5 4430 + h81 mobo opinions/suggestions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I'm building a new budget PC for office use, mainly for graphic design (Photoshop, Illustrator) and some light gaming (Diablo3, WoW).

I have already purchased and assembled the PC, but I can still change the parts if I want to.


What do you guys think of the i5 4430? Should I spend a little more and get the 4570 instead?

I can't find any reviews on the Gigabyte GA-H81M-S2PH (http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4666#ov).
Is the H81 ok? Should I get the B85 or H87 instead?

The H81 mobo and FSP Hexa 500w PSU is not available on that site.

Thanks.

Where are you located? I mean the 4570 is clocked significantly higher and should yield about 10 percent more performance. They have the same igp so gaming probably wouldn't be affected much. If the difference is only 20 or 30 dollars then definately go for the 4570.

Edit: As for the h81/b85/h87 thing, It doesn't matter much because you won't be overclocking or using a dedicated gpu. Also a 500w powersupply is overkill for this kind of build.

I'm in Malaysia. The difference between the 4430 and 4570 is 50MYR, that's like 15USD or so, everything sounds so much cheaper in USD lol.

I won't be overclocking, but I will probably get a better gpu in the future, I'm going to use a gt630 for now.
The H81 has PCI-E 2.0, B85 has 3.0, it won't matter for lower end gpu's right?

That is correct.

You are better off not bothering with a 630gt unless if you have a specialized reason for it. The hd4600 in those chips is about the same power-wise.
