Requesting help with a build for friend.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My friend have asked me to help him compile a build for him.
The budget is around 1000$~ It will used for programming (c++ & c# in java) & playing games.
He already has OS, HDD and optical drive.

This is what I have come up with, anything other parts I should consider aswell or instead of?

No, that's why I haven't picked a cooler.

Then don't get the 4770K.

He does not need more then 450 watt and you can get a better PSU then a Corsair RM for the same money or less

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1230 V3 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($244.98 @ SuperBiiz)
i7 performance for less money. This is a hyperthreaded quad core socket 1150 Haswell just like the i7. The only importance difference, is that it does not have an iGPU and is not overclockable. Since this build is not going to be overclocked and already has a discrete GPU, this CPU offers better value. $75 less than the i7, 5% lower clock speed. Alternatively, the E3-1240V3 is usually about $20 more, still ~$50 less than the i7 and only 2.5% lower clock speeds.

Motherboard: Gigabyte G1.Sniper B5 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($95.46 @ Newegg)
This is a great high value board with upgraded onboard sound and good looks. I think you have selected well.

Memory: Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($78.30 @ SuperBiiz)
The 4x2GB kit you had selected there is total garbage. Sorry. 1.65V for 1600-9-9-9 speeds is 3+ year old chips. Here's a 1.35V kit that runs the same speeds/timings and the green theme will even match the board a little better maybe.
The 1150 socket platform has dual channel memory controllers. Best performance is with 2 DIMMs installed. More DIMMs will only add capacity, not performance. Go with 2x4GB or 2x8GB for a modern build. Only use 3-4 DIMMs if more memory is needed than you can get on 2.

(if the machine could benefit from more memory, get a 2x8GB kit instead for not much more than the 4x2GB you had selected: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/mushkin-memory-997110 or http://pcpartpicker.com/part/crucial-memory-blt2k8g3d1608et3lx0 )

Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($139.99 @ Amazon)
Good choice.

Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($229.99 @ NCIX US)
Good choice.

Case: Fractal Design Define R4 Blackout ATX Mid Tower Case ($84.99 @ Newegg)
Personal preference good choice.

Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 450W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ Newegg)
In combo special with motherboard at newegg $15 savings. The machine as listed and described will never use more than 300W.

Total: $908.70

Literally exactly what I was going to suggest. Except I would get faster memory, at least 1866, 2133 would be better. Programming can take quite a bit of memory.

I don't think the B85 will support anything higher than the 1600MT/s speed setting for system memory so I wouldn't bother personally. I've tested compiling performance with everything from 1333MT/s to 2333MT/s and only see about 1-2% performance improvements, most of it occurring from 1333-1600MT/s. That's with an OCed CPU and CPU-NB on PD. Most of the improvements I have observed in compiling performance come from reducing effective latency, not increasing bandwidth (1600-7-8-8 performs about the same as 2133-10-12-12, either performs several percent better than 1600-11-11-11). I don't know if a stock clocked haswell would see much more performance scaling than I have observed with OCed memory, as the memory controller in haswell is already much more advanced (lower misalignment penalties than PD). YMMV

Did not notice it was a B85 board. Woops biggrin.gif
