Thread: Please Help me deciding my final Spec for Desktop PC

  1. #1

    Question Please Help me deciding my final Spec for Desktop PC

    Hello all,

    I am planning to buy a Desktop PC very soon and I need your valuable advice to decide the final spec.

    Purpose : Its gonna be a multipurpose home desktop, for gaming , running engineering software, simulations , movies....
    Some other info: I will not upgrade any component within 4 years, but I will add some. I will not overclock. I am planning to build my PC in two phase.

    First Phase (will buy from Bangladesh): Budget 55K,can extend to 60K if benefits me highly
    1. Processor
    2. Motherboard
    3. RAM
    4. HDD
    5. Casing
    6. PSU

    Second phase (will bring from USA):
    1. GPU
    2. SSD

    Now followings are about individual spec where I need your input badly. Please comment about the spec and mention current market price:

    Processor : I have chosen Intel Core i5-3550.Its mostly because of its DDR3 1600 support and intel HD graphics 2500 ( to support me until I buy my GPU). Is it okay?

    Motherboard : All I need from motherboard is USB3.0,can support high end GPU, sata 6bgs port. I guess Gigabyte B75 D3H will be sufficient for my purpose. Please comment.

    RAM: 8GB , something of 1600 bus. I read in some post twinmos twister is way better than transcend. Where can I find twinmos twister in IDB?

    HDD : 1TB , 7200 rpm. Which brand should I buy?

    Casing : I need front USB3.0 port , good cooling and nice look! I am in confusion choosing between Inwin MANA 136(have front usb 3.0 , look quite okay and need to buy additional fans), Cooler master Centurion 5II (lacks front USB 3.0 , but looks pretty cool to me and has 140mm front fan). i couldn't check TTV4 as it was unavailable in UCC. Please suggest which one to buy ? (can't I add front USB3.0 by some other means in CM 5II?)

    PSU: TT smart 550W. Enough ?

    GPU : No idea. Suggest me something within $300-400. I am not hardcore gamer.

    SSD: will buy 256GB.

    Thank you all in advance. Looking forward to hear from you. Cheers...

    Might help if you could specify the upper limits of your budget.

    Processor yuup pretty good,
    MB friend of mine bought the same,he is satisfied,
    about the RAM i will ask u to go for transcend, twinmos is nt reliable. (I'm using 1333MHz Transcend RAM,working great,around 18GB/s memory to memory copy)
    HDD must go for hitachi. & 7200rpm for sure,
    for casing ,guess CM will be better,
    TT Smart 550W more than enough if u dont use a gpu (or planning on using 7850/560ti).
    GPU u can buy the Sapphire HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 22K.
    SSD ... dont have enough practical knowledge on this.

    @Codex , post updated with budget ,its 55-60k. Thanks.

    @redwan hasan , as I am planning to buy GPU from USA , will my PSU be enough for a GPU within $400 range (say ASUS HD7950-DC2T-3GD5 Radeon HD or EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 )

    I don't have any experience with Transcend and Twinmos DDR3 modules, but I've hard that the Transcend 1600MHz ones run at CL11, so if the timings on Twinmos twister are tighter, you should definitely go for them. As for the psu, yeah it should be able to power the cards in the $300~400 price range.

    I see your choices are good. No need of any modification.
    WD HDDs are good. Twinmos probably has better timing than transcend.

    @mechafuaad ...the choice is good..all the other members answered all ur questions...but my opinion is that if u r not a harcore gamer..i dont think u need any gpu in range 300-400USD...a 7850 oc will be enough for u i guess($200)...
    get a better motherboard with the rest of the money...lyk the z77 boards...they will give u more number of SATA 3 ports...nd u can also try the new SATA 3 HDDs....

    this is only my suggestion without gpu and ssd considering you are buying them from abroad but if that 60k is including with them, then your own specification is good enough and for gpu, gtx 670 asus direct cu would be better

    there are two versions of Twinmos 1600Mhz RAM:

    1. Twinmos Twister 1600Mhz with 10-10-10-27-1T with better overclocking headroom (upto 1866Mhz) and better heatsink. Price: 2200/= each 4GB stick
    2. Twinmos Piano Black 1600Mhz with 9-9-9-24-1T with far more adjustable tighter timing (can be run easily with 8-8-8-18-1T) but less overclocking headroom. Price: 1750/= each 4GB stick

    Both are XMP enabled. Both have lifetime warranty. I personally suggest the second one as tighter timings seems more important to me than that of getting 200Mhz speed more.

    i agree that transcend is far better than twinmos.i m also using 1333mhz transcend bt i will ask u 2 buy trans. aXe ram 1600 mhz.

    about hdd western digital(not eco series) nd hitachi is the best.

    @blood stain child , thanks man. No, this 60K doesn't include GPU & SSD. My estimation was like this :
    Intel Corei5 3550.....19.5K
    Gigabyte GA-B75-D3h...7.5k( ryans website)
    8GB DDR3 1600...4.5K
    1TB 7200rpm HDD...8.5K
    CM5II with fan...5K(Binary logic)
    TT smart550...7.5K(UCC)

    Total : 52.5K


    Your spec also looks attractive...but cant decide which one would be most optimized !

    - - - Updated - - -

    @maheer.dhruba , You broought up a very good point which was in my mind but I forgot to mention. Actually I was thinking to buy a z77 board, but then I thought why would I buy a costly board while I have a cheaper option which will satisfy all my needs. What advantage would a z77 give me which will justify its extra cost ? I thinks I am not gonna use more than 3 HDD at a time so extra SATA ports wont be of any use I guess. and I am quite ignorant about SATA3,SATA1 things...could you elaborate a bit please?

    Thanks for the help, really appreciated.

    @mechafuaad ONIX computers, IDB, level-4, just opposite of Netstar Computers. And never buy transcend ones, only fools would buy CL11 rams.

    about the RAM i will ask u to go for transcend, twinmos is nt reliable. (I'm using 1333MHz Transcend RAM,working great,around 18GB/s memory to memory copy)
    HDD must go for hitachi. & 7200rpm for sure,
    for casing ,guess CM will be better,
    TT Smart 550W more than enough if u dont use a gpu (or planning on using 7850/560ti).
    GPU u can buy the Sapphire HD 7850 2GB GDDR5 22K.
    SSD ... dont have enough practical knowledge on this.
    thats because of your i7 dude, not because of transcend, put a Twinmos in your motherboard and you'll get min 19GB/s. So, chill......

    about mobo....this is an overclock friendly motherboard..as u have a oc-able cpu...B75 isnt...
    z77s support RAMs with higher clock...usually B75 doesnt...
    about SATA2 and SATA3...as u r gonna buy an SSD...using SATA3 will increase ur read nd write speed to 550/520MBps...whereas in SATA2 in take reach speed of 280/270MBps...hope u get the difference...

    Thanks for clearing confusion about SATA. And about mobo, as I wont OC and b75 supports 1600 bus RAM which I intend to use, what should be my choice?
