They both accept the same CPUs though.

Here is what I was recommending(hope link works right): http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/search/?q=MSI+Z97I+AC Those are for an Intel processor, I don't feel comfortable recommending AMD processors and motherboard as I stick exclusively to Intel and don't have the knowledge on AMD processors.

So which parts list should I put this with?

If I do replace this with either motherboard on the lists, what would I be loosing out on, if anything?

You can always upgrade the processor later, and most people really dont need a ton of PCI slots. This one comes with on-board WiFi that works well... less money and hassle spent on getting a seperate card.

So your saying it would be best to have this motherboard in with this parts list

Just trying to finalize a parts lists so I know what I`m getting.

That board + the Pentium would work in either build, but If it were me, I would try and save up a few more dollars to get a i3 if feasible.

However, if you cant spend more now, at least you are only out 50 bucks for the processor if you want to upgrade.

Could you put a link up to an i3 that you would recommend?
post #45 of 104
I would get this one.

You could always get the processor, which has on-board graphics, and then get the card when you get a little more money. I have that same processor sitting in a box, I could put it on a computer and see how it runs PS by itself if you want to see if it will get you by for a little bit.

You mean the wifi card?

That would be great man.

I understand parts and such a little better when I see them all together in the parts list, this way it gives me an idea of price and other people reviews of each part, if there's any.

That's what I'm going on, is your advice and any reviews I may find.

Edit: Just trying to do some comparing on Intel`s i3 vs AMD Athlon X4 760K, which is in one of my parts list, it seems that AMD come out on top...this is what I`ve read.

Edit: I think I could be wrong, Intel seems to be the one for multitasking or heavy gaming/3D, etc...

Edit: Right, I`m sold Intel it is, judging from this video it seems to be the one to go for.
At this stage my brain is getting fried, trying to figure out which is best for me, but that video confirmed it for me, plus I`m fed up looking, I`m happy with this decision.

First off once again I`d like to thank everyone who helped me out with figuring out the best build for me, really appreciated.

So I`ve made up what I think will be the final build here hopefully since it`s a little more than I budgeted for, it`ll do the job and last me a long time.

If anyone would like to add any final thoughts/comments I`m all ears, smile.gif

Once again thank you!!!

One thing, how hot would the CPU get when doing heavy tasks, would I need a cooler.

Also the power supplies socket, when I order it, will it be shipped with the correct plug for my country (Ireland)?

You dont necessarily need the gaming version of the mother board, you could always get the standard version: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-z97iac but it is only a 10.00 savings. The gaming board should theoretically last longer due to better components though.

Build looks good, though you are going to fill up that drive pretty quick unless you have another HDD, but that is another thing that can be added later.

The CPU should come with a stock cooler, it will work but could get pretty hot if used very heavily, so yes an aftermarket heat sink is always a good idea. You can always monitor the temps.

My only other comments on the build would be this... If you are designing, then that monitor size is going to get annoying fast. I dont know how it is in Ireland, but is it possible to find a used bigger monitor?

This does`nt look like it has wifi, does it?

Going the Ethernet option is to awkward for me as in the cable would be way to long from where I will have the PC.

I like the idea of it lasting longer smile.gif even if it`s only €10.

I do have two other external HD`s, but would you think that SSD (64gb) would be enough for Window`s 8.1(64bit).
I was thinking of just having the OS on it and the likes of Photoshop, just so it runs the best it can?

I would`nt be doing major rendering, just minimal usage I guess, I`m by no means a pro-designer, lol.

What roughly, would be the higher temps I should look out for, to avoid?

Well I`m using a crappy laptop that`s 17" for ages now and I`ve no problem with it, so a 21.5" would be a step in the right direction, I know most people would prefer bigger, so would I, but I`m really pushing the budget as it is, I can always look into that later on down the line.
