    Default PC Buying Suggestions

    I have an old system, almost 6 years old. I am planning to change it one by one.

    Let's look at my present system:

    Intel C2D 2.93 GHz + Asus p5kpl-am + 2x2 GB DDR2 (TwinMos) + TT 420W PSU

    HDD: Samsung 400 GB

    Now I am open to listen your suggestions regarding my future system.

    Corsair VS450

    Toshiba 3TB HDD

    Intel Core i5 (4th Gen.)

    Gigabyte / Asus / MSI Mainboard (Within 6k)

    4 GB RAM (2nd RAM later)

    I am not buying all at a time. At first gonna buy PSU and UPS. Then HDD and later Processor + MB + RAM.

    Hello,

    It would have been much better if you had specified your budget and what you are mainly going to use your PC for, and if only for Gaming then what type of games. Please update your thread with those details. Also what are you planning on the GPU, if you are getting a new system then why not a new GPU ?


    So now I'll first suggest that you get a better PSU, you might not need the extra wattage but getting a good PSU is important, a better PSU means more lifetime of your PC. But the VS450 is fine if you don't plan on upgrading any of your specs in the future, or you are in a tight budget.

    Also I don't know why you are jumping to a 3 TB already when you originally needed just 400 GB, a 1 TB or 2 TB should be fine and you can also use your 400 GB with it. If you are okay on spending a little more then you can look at getting an SSD, that will really give you a big boost in performance given that you are coming from a 6 year old PC.

    For the CPU I think an i5 is good enough. Which model to choose depends on your budget and your needs. For the MoBo I'll suggest the MSI H81M-E35 V2 which cost 5.6k I guess and seems to be a good MoBo for your budget, or you can get a Gigabyte B85 MoBo with 6k.

    For the RAM you can basically go with any RAM as long as it supports your MoBo and CPU. If you want to spend a bit more then get Corsair Vengeance or G.Skill as they are more reputed and might give you better experience.


    I hope I can help you more but for that I need more details, so please post those.

    H81 does not support PCIE 3.0 so it should be omitted at the first place.

    Sorry I forgot about that. The thing is I found this MoBo recently and it felt pretty nice for a H81 board and thought it might be good for budget builds. Well then he should just go for the B85 from Gigabyte.

    Just out of curiosity, why would he need so much power? He did not mention a GFX card.

    I would suggest you not to buy a 3TB HDD if you are planning to use it as your system/main/OS drive. 3TB HDD can only have GPT partition system, which can only be booted on UEFI-based computers running 64-bit versions of Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista. But thats not the deal breaker. The deal breaker is that right now all 3TB HDD are pretty unreliable. I know a 3TB HDD sound very economic. But still its better if you use a 1TB Western Digigal Blue, which is very reliable. Otherwise for a storage drive 3TB is ok.

    I am assuming that you are going to use the new system for 5+ yrs. In that case buying an i5 makes complete sense. Since you are going to buy the CPU, Mobo and RAM later, wait 2 more months for skylake (6th generation) instead of getting a 2 yrs old architecture (4th Generation)

    Further more don't cheap out on the mobo. Buy one which will have 4 RAM slots. It will give you more room to add more RAMs in the later yrs, allowing you to use it for longer period of time. And buy an 8GB RAM instead of 4GB.

    I am using GIGABYTE 5670 at the moment. I will upgrade this after buying other stuffs.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I have a plan to use 400 GB HDD as primary HDD and new one 2/3 TB as storage drive.

    This is gonna be major update, so I need to pick wisely. I have to buy HDD first, others can wait. I am not a hardcore gamer by the way.

    On a Z series chipset, you can even overclock non-k processor to 400-600Mhz without even touching the BCLK. Its called "partially unlocking". I myself currently running my 3470 @3.8Ghz on all cores. Can be raised upto 4.2Ghz

    Thanks for the support, most probably next week I am going to buy HDD. I will wait couple of months to build whole system. One thing, how good is GIGABYTE PSU and also GsKill RAM ?

    why are you all suggesting such high wattage PSUs!!


    OP does not have a external GPU nor does he intend to buy in future... he would only be using i5 and 8gigs of ram... for this a good 500w is more than enough for even a i5+290 build...
    TR2 Bronze 500w is ~4.7k... when it comes to budget build, every single saved penny counts...
