Basic PC Spec

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Please Review

Processor: Intel Celeron E1200 @ 1.6 GHz, 200 x 8 (Over clocked to 2.8 GHz, 350 x 8 75% Over clock)
Motherboard: DFI BIP35-T2R “Blood Iron†Intel P35
Memory: G Skill 2 x 1GB DDR2 PC6400 800 MHz
Graphics Card: HIS ATI Radeon HD 3850 Pro 256mb GDDR3
Power Supply: OcUK Huntkey 450w
Optical Driver: Sony NEC DVD-RW
Hard Drive: Hitachi Deskstar 160GB
Case: XClio Coolbox Midi Tower
Operating System: Windows Home Basic 32 bit or 64bit OEM
Processor Cooling: Tuniq Tower 120-LFB
Price: £414.66 Inc VAT

This system is for my parents. They use there PC for Basic Gaming, Basic AutoCAD, Word Processing, Excel, Internet, Video & Photo Editing VHS to DVD

I’m kind of stuck because they need a mid range graphics card to able to operate AutoCAD and Games like Sonic 3D and Touring Cars. I also need a good processor to help with the editing of holiday photos and the transfer of VHS to DVD kit they have

The reason I choose ATI over Nvidia is because ATI is configured better for the Intel chipset and they are a bit cheaper I did notice you can get a 8800GT 256mb for about £3 more

I was thinking of getting rid of the Tuniq Tower 120-LFB that would give me an extra £30 for processor but I can’t find a 2.8 GHz duel core processor for £65

Or should I go down the AMD route! but I said to my Dad the other day that AMD are good but Intel seem to be that little bit better at the moment because they run a lot cooler I even showed him Videos on YouTube of how quick a AMD Chips will blow without the Heat sink compared to Intel Chips

Another thing I was thinking of doing was giving them my new E2180 chip but I want to keep it because it’s a brut.

P.S I might also buy myself one of these E1200 if they can over clock to 3 GHz

Any changes I could do please advise

Agreed...

I stay away from the Celeron's myself since there is hardly a difference in price when you upgrade to a E2XXX series...which I think will perform quite better.

I've got a E2180 I ran it on Saturday and I got 3+ Ghz its only a tad slower than the E7200 at 3 Ghz. I don't want to give it away because she is a brut. The reason I said Celeron is because it was dirt cheap and the review on OCUK was great

8800GT 256MB is a crap card, don't get it.

I'll stick with the ATI Radeon HD 3850 Pro 256mb GDDR3.

I just going to have to talk to Dad about giving another £20 to buy a E2### I would like him to get the E2200 because I want to see the OCing diff between E2200 & E2180
