RIG building help

Recommended Posts

Hi OCC.

 

I am helping my friend with his desktop. He want to built a desktop.

Usage: editing video, rendering video, motion graphics, gaming, but he doesn't do extreme gaming..

 

This is the spec I recommended to him

 

BUGDET: US$ 1250

 

CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K Sandy Bridge

 

Motherboard: ASRock P67 Extreme 4

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=P67%20Extreme4

 

Memory: Patriot PSD3 8GB KH 1333MHz

 

Casing: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition

http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Product.aspx?S=1308&ID=1913

 

PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 650watt

 

HDD: WDC Green SATA II 1TB

 

I want to ask about the VGA. The price are not too much different. Which one is better? the choice are between Nvidia GTX 460 1 GB STOCK and

 

Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 550 Ti 1GB Factory Overclocked

What do you think about this built?

 

The System has not been built yet, we still are looking for the best part..feel free to tell me if there are any incompatibility parts.

 

Is there any suggestion?

 

Oh, he don't do overclocking, stock cooling is enough... :D

 

Thank you..

 

Regards

If he's not overclocking then just get the i7 2600 rather than the 2600k and a h67 motherboard instead of a p67, will save some money.

I believe the 460 is faster than the 550 at stock but it also uses more power, the overclock will close the gap a bit though.

Rest of the build looks solid to me :)

hi

 

it does look like a solid build and the power supply will be sufficient.if i was the one buying i would go for the GTX 460 as it performs better and is a hell of a overclocker if you get a good chip.

Thanks! :) Actually, what is the different between H67 and P67 chipset?

 

So, did you mean, The GTX 550 uses less power than 460?

H67 has no overclocking features, but is a fair bit cheaper.

Yes, depends if this is important to him though.
