    New PC setup

    I've decided to build a new second PC. I've bought peripherals as follows:

    Intel Core i5 3470 3,2GHz 6MB L3 cache LGA1155
    Gigabyte GA-B75M-HD3 (Intel B75 Express Chipset)
    Zotac GeForce GT440 AMP! Synergy Edition 2GB GDDR3 (taken from my older PC)
    Corsair DDR3 8GB/1600MHz (2*4G VENGEANCE CL9-9-9-24 Low Profile Blue Heatspreader
    OCZ Vertex 2 SDD 64GB 285/270 MB/s + Western Digital 500GB HDD SATA II WD5003ABYX RE4 7200RPM 64MB cache.
    Corsair Builder Series CX 500W Modular PSU C80+(CP-9020059-EU)
    A random PC case: Tracer Vector TRO-198

    Feel free to comment, suggestions regarding configuration are appreciated.

    in my eye the configuration is
    i5 processor
    2gb graphics
    8gb ram
    500gb hard disk space
    and a cabinet or case

    can't understand anything else
    and i think heard of 7200RPM in hard disk (maybe normal one have 5400RPM) & 6mb cache in processor

    and in my opinion a pc with this config can't be beaten in any aspect (maybe there out some but i will be very very happy with this pc )
    Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

    To be honest it's a decent configuration. A kickass PC would be built using the fastest i7, GTX 680, maybe 2x for SLI and a Z77 chipset mobo with enchanced overclocking capabilities.

    The motherboard on Z77 chipset would be more useful and perform better, but they're more expensive and I don't need to overclock the i5, nor do I need a simple RAID 0 or 1 setup (I'd rather buy an external Raid controller with Raid 5 capability than spend more cash on a motherboard which only supports RAID 0 and 1.

    B75 Express still allows to setup memory timings, which is essential for the Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz CL9 sticks (normally 1600MHz ValueRams have CL11 as a standard).

    I don't know if a SLI or a Crossfire are even needed for anything... I've got a AMD HD7870 and every games are running well without FPS loss, movie registering and encoding too. Aren't SLI and Crossfire to connect secondary screens?


    Corsair ? Asus ? Razer ? Beyerdynamic

    It's great, but I would anyway have added GeForce 650 for 100 $ or smth ..

    The Graphics card has been taken from my older PC, which now is mainly set for office work and some basic server functions (databases etc.). That's why I didn't buy a new one. If I did, it would probably be the one of GF 6 GTX series (200$+).

    Actual PC with i5 as mentioned above, wasn't built for gaming. I work on this PC, connecting to main server, office stuff, photo editing (photography is my hobby and it's quite nice to have a fast PC to perform RAW conversion and later post processing).
