Thread: Gaming PC

  1. #1

    Default Gaming PC

    Would be buying a pc very soon. This is what I decided.

    Core i5 4570 16K
    Gigabyte G1 Sniper B5 10.5K
    Crosair Vengeance 8GB 8K
    R9 290 42K
    HDD 3TB 11.5K
    OD 1.7K
    Asus VX229H 16.7K
    Corsair CS650M 10.5K
    Apolo 1200 VA 5K Total 111K

    Suggest a casing within 4/5K with USB 3.0 support and speaker within 15K, please.
    Finally, razer mouse with a costly mechanical keyboard; are they worth the investment ?
    Want to buy the whole pc from PCWR.

    I am considering the option for SSD but a bit later maybe. Do you know if any 60 GB good ssd available ? Intel 330 series or transcend 320 series ? There is the 120GB neutron gtx but that's gonna stretch my budget.

    No, I don't have the option for importing a case. I don't care about the look.

    1. Avoid B85 chipset at any cost.
    2. You can buy good Gigabyte/Asrock Z87 board at 11k.
    3. Buy a ram with 2x4GB to make dual channel.
    4. 290X is okay.
    5. 3TB??? No hard feelings but you need to move to GPT which i do believe is next to impossible for you to properly configure it.
    6. You can get ODD in a much less price.
    7. Good Monitor but you can move to Viewsonic VX2270S as it is more suitable for gaming because of it lower response time (4ms GTG).
    8. Get Tt Toughpower 550w. You will get 3 years warranty coverage unlike any brand. More over, it covers burn damage warranty and it is a very good unit. The price is also less.
    9. Whatever you do in your lifetime, dont buy Apollo ups anymore. They gone crap.

    i dont see a point of 60GB SSD, 120/128GB SSD's are not that pricey anymore, you can definitely have one.

    and for the case Check available thermaltake cases, see which one you like.

    for speaker within 15K, look for available logitec speakers, they are pretty good.

    people all over the world will vote yes for a mechanical keyboard, although I think a good quality keyboard will be enough and I will say yes for gaming mouse.
    (I mainly play FPS & RTS single and multiplayer)

    never bought anything from their.

    B85 mobos are just as fine with i5 4570 as it is a locked processor with almost no headroom for overclocking. Other than that, in that price range, z87 would be a better bang for your bucks. The rest I agree with Vanguard bro.

    for the motherboard you I guess MSI B85 G43 gaming is a better choice- better audio, better LAN, but Gigabyte boards are more reliable.
    For monitor any Asus VX229H should be fine.
    CX650M 10K+? I bought the CX750 for only 9.9K...

    5. What is GPT ?
    6. How much and what brand ?
    7. I'll stick with the Asus one.
    8. Will 550w be enough for the spec ? Where can I find one and the price ?
    9. What do you suggest then ? Rahimafroz ?

    Thanks.

    FPS isn't increased when games are put in an SSD. Only loading time decreases. I will only install the os in the SSD. I don't need more than 60GB. I may probably get one of this, http://ucc-bd.com/transcend-ssd320-sata-iii-6gb-s-premium.html

    How about the Corsair 200R ?
    I think I'll be getting a Microlab FC 861 5.1. Anybody know if solo 8c/9c available in bd ? Also, solo 7c still available ?
    I'll probably buy a gaming mouse. Keyboard... if I have money to spare.
    Thanks.

    Since I won't be overclocking or doing multi gpu; I wanted the B85. Can you suggest a cheap Asrock/Gigabyte Z87 and where I can find one ?

    Gigabyte or MSI whatever, it's B85 and hardly matters.
    Actually, you're mistaken. I didn't write, CX650M. I mentioned CS650M

    You can overclock even a locked processor upto 500-600Mhz safely with a decent Z87 which comes to a total of ~20% processing performance increase. I personally tested it alongside @terrygr8_007 . If i had any chance to get a good Z77 board within my budget, i would ditch my shitty B75 long ago. And in the case of B85, H81 is even better than B85. Because being a business class chipset, B85 doesnt allow ANY sort of overclocking, not even BCLK increase. Whereas in H81 (atleast what i saw in Gigabyte H81M-S2PV), you can adjust cpu/vram voltage, increase/decrease latency/bus frequency and more importantly adjust the Processor clock ratio upto a certain amount of degree. Im really astonished what gigabyte ahs done with a H61. On the contrary, B85 has some benefits too. It allows users to have Intel Small Business Advantage, SBT and Intel secure LAN connection protocols, but i dont think any gamers will ever be needing those useless features. DALE!

    8. Will 550w be enough for the spec ? Where can I find one and the price ?
    9. What do you suggest then ? Rahimafroz ?

    Thanks.
    1. Read what i replied to Franklin.
    2. Gigabyte Z87 HD3 (12k) or Asrock Z87 Pro-3 (11.6k).
    3. Double effective memory bandwidth.
    4. Good choice.
    5. Graphical Partition Table. You will HAVE TO use it when using a single drive which is more than 2.2TB. My suggestion, take a 2TB.
    6. 1.4k. Samsung.
    7. Any particular reason that you want to share with us about this monitor?
    8. Look at my rig. What is more important in buying a psu is you need to look at the psu quality, not at the psu's wattage quantity. You can get it from UCC. Price 7.5k.
    9. PowerTree 1250VA. I am using one and it is the ONLY brand available in BD which gives 0.65 minimum power factor and actual 8.2Ah double battery.

    DALE!

Because being a business class chipset, B85 doesnt allow ANY sort of overclocking, not even BCLK increase. Whereas in H81 (atleast what i saw in Gigabyte H81M-S2PV), you can adjust cpu/vram voltage, increase/decrease latency/bus frequency and more importantly adjust the Processor clock ratio upto a certain amount of degree. Im really astonished what gigabyte ahs done with a H61. On the contrary, B85 has some benefits too. It allows users to have Intel Small Business Advantage, SBT and Intel secure LAN connection protocols, but i dont think any gamers will ever be needing those useless features. DALE!

    1. Have read.
    2. How about MSI Z87 G43 Gaming at 12.8K ? And, apart from overclocking issue, does the B85 have any other limitation ?
    3. Got it.
    4. Yeah.
    5. Man you just made my life more complicated. I have to get a 3 TB hdd. In fact I am thinking about getting an additional 2 TB if I can. Will it be a lot of trouble configuring the 3TB hdd ?
    6. Ok.
    7. No actually.
    8. Ok.
    9. What's the price and where can I get one ?

    What do you think about the Microlab FC 861 5.1 ? Do you think it's worth investing in a costly mechanical keyboard ?

    Thanks.

    for Overclocking 500-600MHz you will need a decent cooler.
    and even if u overclock this what u will get is higher numbers, in gaming i doubt you will see hardly any difference, for 99% games there will be no change, but for processor hungry games you might be benefited.

    as it is a locked processor i will vote for Z87 G43 Gaming

    voting yes for dual channel memory.

    You are fine with 3TB, just buy a SSD.

    For the PSU, with a higher wattage one u have a lot of headroom, you can add another card later if u want.
    and TT toughpower is solid build psu. you can definitely go for that but see if u can find the 650W or something.

    What's a decent cpu cooler ? like the cm hyper 212 evo ? price ? Again, with 500-600 mhz, I won't be getting increase in fps. Just tell me, if I don't overclock or add a 2nd card later, is a b85 g43 enough ?
    Is the transcend 320 series a good investment for SSD ? Also, in case of 3tb hdd, as vanguard said, will there be any problem with GPT ?
    I think 550 watt is enough for my spec. 650 won't be sufficient if i want to add a 2nd 290 later. i'll stick with the 550 watt. Thanks.

    *****The major problem of the MSI board is it does not have dual bios. Why it is that much important, you will understand it once you mess with your bios and damage it.

    As you are using an i5 processor, somehow you have to buy a aftermarket cooler because while playing multilayer fps games like Battlefield 4, your processor with stock cooler will easily hit ~80c. Me and @rk7 faced it.

    Hyper 212X is 2.8k. Hyper 212X> 212 Evo> 212 Slim >212 Plus. And for 500-600Mhz, yes you WILL notice increased fps.

    Dont go for ANY transcend ssd. In some cases, they are even worse than Harrdisks.

    GPT thikmoto configure kora ektu tough. MBR is of much less hassle. You can buy 2x2TB if you want.

    550w is more than enough for your spec.

    If u dont OC and add a second card... YES. You are fine.
    and 212X/212Evo is a very good cooler.

    If you don't plan to install windows on a GPT you are fine. GPT works fine. And its really simple.

    your choice.

    Transcend 320 is nothing like Samsung 840,still it will give your system a good boost. is 720 available ?
    (Transcend 320's price to performance ratio is not that good)


    about dual bios, Gigabyte is ofcourse more stable than MSI but still your are getting better audio and LAN, and not to many ppl enters the bios each day!

    Configuring GPT is not tough at all. It's easy.

    Besides about dual bios, you don't need that unless you plan on flashing a new UEFI version(or beta test) everyday. MSI motherboards, high/mid end ones come with a CMOS reset switch at the back for convenience. Dual bios is only good if you mess up something when flashing/upgrading, other than that if you know what you are doing- there shouldn't be any problem.
