New i5 build , for gaming and 3d design.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm planning a build for a friend, i want to get it together in maximum two weeks.
I've been looking around and i got this together:
CPU: Intel i5750
Motherboard: Asus P7P55D
RAM: Team Extreem PC3 4 GB
GPU: Sapphire HD 5776 1024 GDDR5
DVD: Asus DRW 24x Lightscribe
PSU: Zalman ZM.750W
Cooler: Zalman CNP510
HD: Samsung 1TB 32mn cache
Screen: Samsung t220 HD TV
Case: Antec P180 Black

I want this pc to be able to run well some 3d design softwares, and gaming from time to time, do you think this pc is up tp the challenge?
thanks for your time.

Everything seams fine, except for the CPU and GPU. The intel core 2 quad Q9550 is a bit better (personally) and is only a few bucks more expensive than the i5. I don't believe that the motherboard will support the Q9550, so keep that in mind. What 3D program is your friend using? I modell with 3D Studio Max 2010, and it opens in under 20 seconds ( could be faster if I get better RAM). Previously with my intel Pentium D 2.83 GHz, it took about 1.5 mins. The Core 2 Duo's at my school open up 3D Studio Max 2009 in about 1.5 mins.

Oh, the GPU is not a 5776 is 5770. I would get the 4890 or 4870x2. these cards are cheaper, but provide about the same performance.

If you choose another mobo, make sure you choose one with atleast 2 PCI-e x16 slots. 3D modelling will use your GPU extensively (more than gaming most of the time) and upgrading to more than one GPU won't be a bad idea.

Good luck.

I have never run any of that software but I am pretty sure it would be fine.

It really depends on what 3d software you're running. I've been doing 3d modeling for 5 years, and I've had just about every card from nvidia to ATI. I've noticed nVidia's run 3d modeling better. I game on ATI and work on nVidia. If he can splurge, get a quadro. From experience, they're worth it.

The only quadro that i find in the same price range as the ATi is the PNY Quadro FX370 256 Mb.But it seems a low-end model.

This is a fail post on so many levels. OP please ignore this guys post.

Btw looks like a solid build.

2 things though.

Cooler(over priced). Get a Megahalem or megashadow for that price
Power supply: Get a Corsair 750tx or hx. Seasonic. Pc power and cooling, or OCZ.

the Q9550 is not better than an I5 750 ...
His system is perfect, except for the GPU. I would choose a 5850 or 4890 for a smaller budget.

I can get the XFX HD 4870 for 179.99€ or the XFX HD 4890 fo 199.99€.
They're a tad more expensive, are they worth the difference?
And is this board any good for overclocking?I was thinking of trying atleast 2.8ghz
