Thread: Need suggestions on Upgrading

  1. #1

    Default Need suggestions on Upgrading


    Questions
    1. Q: What is your existing hardware configuration (component name - component brand and model)
      1. CPU - Intel PDC E2200
      2. Motherboard - Haier
      3. GPU - 9500GT
      4. RAM - 2GB DDR2
      5. Monitor - 24 inch LCD
      6. PSU - Dunno. But costly and from abroad and 650WT
    2. Q: Which hardware will you be keeping (component name - component brand and model)
      1. PSU
      2. MONITOR
      3. OTHER ACCESSORIES
    3. Q: Which hardware component are you looking to buy (component name). If you have already decided on a configuration then please mention the (component brand and model) as well, this will help us in fine tuning your requirement.
      1. CPU - I WANNA GO WITH AMD (Athlon II x4/Phenom II x4) But can do with Intel if price + performance figures out
      2. Motherboard - any compatible motherboard (Better if overclocking supported)
      3. GPU - I prefer Stuffs from AMD. But can go with Gforce if it suits CPU/MoBo
      4. RAM DDR3 (anything that's good. I'm not gonna overclock much.) 4-8GB
      5. CASING (nothing fancy, but has to have good cooling)
      6. Suggest if I need to buy anything else?
    4. Q: Is this going to be your final configuration or you would be adding/upgrading a component in near future. If yes then please mention when and which component
      1. I need this PC for only 1.5 Years. After that I'm gonna go to Australia. So, I don't need a very high quality PC
    5. Q: From where will you buy these hardwares?
      1. Bangladesh
    6. Q: What is your intended use for this PC/hardware
      1. Gaming
    7. Q: Do you have any brand preference or dislike? Please name them and the reason for your preference/dislike.
      1. I like AMD/RADEON combo
    8. Q: If you will be playing games then which type of games will you be playing?
      1. Strategy, RPG, Action
      2. I wanna play GTA IV (minimum settings) and AC II Revelation (and if possible future AC III ) and similar games
      3. BTW, I played ACII, GTAIV Liberty City stories with my previous config with passable performance. I'm expecting MEDIUM performance from the new hardware in gaming. That means the games should run properly and end properly. I don't mind if I have to minimize shadows/anti-aliasing etc.
    9. Q: What is your preferred monitor resolution for gaming and normal usage
      1. Gaming - the best I can get (less than or equal to 1440x900)
      2. Desktop - 1440x900
    10. Q: Are you looking to overclock?
      1. Yes/No
    11. Q: Which operating system do you intend to use with this configuration?
      1. Windows 7 64 bit
    ABOUT THE BUDGET -

    NOT more than 30K.

    As I said before, I need this PC only for 1.5 years and I expect Medium performance. I want all games to run and play smoothly. That's it... And I'm only upgrading CPU, MotherBoard and GPU....

    So, suggest please. I hope to get the best config (using your help of course) possible. Make any kind of suggestions and give reasons for that.

    Thanks in Advance
    Fotteti (Faruk)




    PS, I forgot to tell, I don't mind buying 2/3 months used parts (if for VERY reasonable price), with warranty remaining for 1.5 years, ofcourse.

    ADATA is 1,650/= Twinmos, Transcends are bad ram and overpriced as 1,900/= per 2GB stick( CL more than 11 !!! Can you believe it)----- Talking about 1600bus one.

    Thanks Dee, Infracted.

    Dee, Which one is better Phenom II x4 or Athlon II x4?
    Can the cheap MoBo u suggested be used for overclocking? (Ofcourse, I don't wanna overclock much anyway... but if bottleneck occurs...)
    Is GTX460 better than HD6850?
    and Will GTX460 be compatible with the CPU/MoBo?

    and about the Card, HD6850... Will I be able to play latest games on it? (AC II rev, etc)
