Chipp needs a new (little) rig - Page 3

post #21 of 42
If you get a H67 board tho the onboard video is about equiv to a 4250, the the PSU should be more than sufficient.

Sure, 8gb would be nice, but I've gotta leave something to upgrade later, right? I'm glad to see an affirmation on the PSU; info seems scarce there.
Heh, don't quote me quite yet - Seasonic generally makes solid PSUs, I'm going to shoot Phaedrus a PM and see if he can shed any light on it.

Yes, but in the OP he mentioned a potential 3850 upgrade so that should be taken in to consideration.

The GPU honestly isn't something I'm too worried about in the short term. Mid summer I might be on the hunt for an upgrade, but for right now I'm predominately concerned with a good base system. Any sort of more intensive gaming would wait until the summer anyways. Just about anything these days is capable of a happy Aero experience and can handle 1080p video, so that fits my needs. What is most likely to happen is I use the 3850 until some point a year or so down the road, then up to a beefier GPU and 8gb of RAM.

Hah! That did make me chuckle.

Here's Phaedrus' response

So it shouldn't be a computer-killer.

That's what i'm trying to point out. SB CPU's have video built in which equal about a 4250, so getting a 3850 is kinda pointless. So that is less $ you have to dish out.

3850 > 4250. Unless something major changed between those series and I missed it.

the GPU in my sig would put a nice edge on this rig rather long though

I would suggest either a Antec 300 (these were going for around $30 a couple of months ago), like you originally had, or a HAF 912 for a case.

If you are going to be doing music production, I would suggest you go with a i5 2500k, as that gives you the ability to overclock and also is future resistant (who invented the word future-proof anyways? People always say "future-proof for another 3 years" or something, and it makes no sense).

Also, I suggest a GTX560 Ti or a GTS450.

In terms of HDDs, if you definitely want a SSD, go for it, but I would buy 2x500GB F3s and put them in RAID0. I know people always say that RAID0 is unsafe and all, but my main rig (which is on about 14 hours/day) has been using those 2 maxtors in RAID0 for the past year, and I got them from dumpster diving. No issues yet, although I do have a backup just in case.

I also suggest a DX or something similar for a sound card.
