    2. Both AMD Phenom II X4 960 and Core i3 2100 are almost similar in performance.

      In some cases AMD X4 performs better and in other Core i3 perform better.

      From gaming perspective - both are almost equal

      U can also check, AMD Phenom II X6 - 1055T for Rs.7.1k

  6. is it ok to upgrade a core2duo 1.8 ghz to more faster clock speed or should i still stick with the same ??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1) It is not a good idea to upgrade core 2 duo.
      Better switch to core i3 or i5.

      2) Samsung DVD writer are very good in my opinion. I have been using 1 for 4 years without problem.

      But if u want to switch go for Asus or LG
      If u can pay more go for LG Blu-Ray Wirter - Rs.6.1k

    1. Even tho FX 6100 has 6 cores, it doesnt perform well.

      I would recommend, try to get Phenom II X4 965.

      If that is not possible go for FX 6100

      Delete
    2. Is Phenom II X4 965 still available? Can you tell that X4 970 or X4 975 are still available or not.

    Processor - AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ Fx4100
    Motherboard - Asus M5A78L-M LX 760G

    Hard Disk - Seagate 250GB
    Optical Drive - HP DVD Writer
    Graphics Card - Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6450 2 GB DDR3

    1. Santhosh,

      Your config looks good.
      Some suggestions, Replace the below things.

      1) Hard Disk - 500 GB (250 GB is very less)
      2) Graphics Card - 2 GB is not needed, Choose any one of

      Nvidia GT 440 - 1 GB - Rs 4.3k
      AMD HD 6750 - 1 GB - Rs. 5.5k

      Totally it will cost near Rs. 24k

      Delete
    2. Thanks a lot for ur suggestion...:)
      I feel 250GB hard disk is sufficient as i have an external hard disk of 1 TB...wat do u say?

      And, for graphics card, as u suggested i'll go for Nvidia 1GB...

      Delete
    3. If u have a 1 TB Ex HD, then it is fine.

      But if u install lot of games and apps, u still need atleast 500GB

      Delete
    4. Yeah..will take your suggestion...

      I have got a doubt...i don't understand the logic behind the pricing of Graphic cards...The Graphic card which i mentioned is Rs.3190 on Flipkart and it is 2GB DDR3...and the ones which you mentioned are just 1GB and they are priced more than the one which I mentioned...Can u explain me the logic behind this? The one which i mentioned, is it not such a good one?

      I would recommend u to go for Intel Core i7 for best results, If u r tight on budget go for Core i5

      Problem with Bulldozer : OS does not use the processor fully.
      This might change in Windows 8, also a Hotfix available for Win 7

  38. Sorry for the disturbance. basically i don't need computer in my home. My son (J.S.Karthik, 6 years) used to play games in my old computer. currently he used sony vaio laptop. so there is no urgency to assemble a pc.

    I really impressed by your vast knowledge in computer field. I got interest to assembly a pc just because reading your blog. Thankyou verymuch!

    2. One doubt, u have already bought it or need to buy?

      If u r yet to buy, here are some tips
      1) Go for cheaper Mobo like Asus M5A78L-M LX (Since ur budget is 26k)
      2) U need atleast Zebronics 500w Platinum
      3) Keyboard - better go for USB than PS/2

      As per my suggestion it will come near 26k

      But, dont u need a GPU for gaming?

  41. Thanx 4 suggetions. . . . . . . I shall buy it in about last week of this month. . . . . . . .
    1. I already thinked about M5A78L-M LX. But it has no USB 3.0 and HDMI PORT. I have a FULL HD TV. I want to connect the tv. So i need a HDMI port, I need USB 3.0 and 4 X RAM SLOT for future use.
    2. I will follow your suggestion to by a 500w smps. But what is the price of good quality but low cost 500w smps? Mention company , model no. and price.
    3. I m also thinking to buy a usb keyboard.
    4. The m.board M5A88-M has 1GB inbuilt grafix. . . . . And i m not a daily gamer. So i need not other GPU.

    Now. . . . . . . .
    1. U can tell me of any other motherboard which has this features.
    2. Tell me the difference of specifications and price between ZEBRONICS BUTTERFLY and FRONTECH DAISY cabinet.
    3. I need not to over clock the CPU. So Can i buy any low price cabinet to use which has 2 fan? If not then suggest me of any other cabinet compatible for M5A88-M at good specifications but low price like 1k-1.5k.
    4. Is there not any inbuilt 500w smps with frontech daisy or zebronics butterfly?
    5. I have seen that a mouse is free with zebronics butterfly. I have seen it on zebronics's website. Is it true? Do i not need to buy a mouse?

    Thanx. . . . Sorry if I mistake any spelling. . . . . . HAVE A NICE DAY Bye. Bye.

    1. 1) Then ASUS M5A88-M is a good choice
      2) If u can spend enough money and planing to buy a GPU, go for Cooler Master GX 550 - Rs.4k
      Else, Zebronics 500w Platinum - Rs.2k

      3) Both Zeb and Frontech are decent cabinets
      4) Yes, u can use cheaper cabinets. Both the cabinet u mentioned are cheap and good.
      5) Never go for built-in SMPS.
      6) If mouse comes free, use it. Else go for Logitech or Hp Mouse. Will be around Rs.300

  42. 1. Suggest me of any 500gb hard disc at good performence and low price.
    2. Is the samsung HDD is good? It is a low cost HDD.
    3. The smps which u suggested is high cost. . . So suggest a low price smps. . . . . . . To put my price budget of whole computer at 25k-27k.
    4. One more thing, i have decided to buy an Intex 2.1 channel speaker.

    1. 1) HDD cost and performance are almost similar. Go for any brand

    1. 1) Do u have a dedicated GPU? onboard graphics adapter might be using some memory

      2) There is no much diff between 32 and 64Bit. 64-Bit OS can use more than 4GB of RAM.
      Also some applications will perform better with a 64-Bit OS and 4GB+ RAM

  44. Thanx again. . . . . . .
    1. But if i buy the zebronics 500w platinum , then how much will cost in only cabinet? Will the budget increase?
    2. Give me some suggestions about 500GB SATA hard disc. I have chosen the seagate, but it costs about 4.5k in flipkart.com. I have not seen the price in our area. But i m confused about Seagate and samsung. Which should i buy? Samsung is low cost but seagate is good. Can i buy Western Digital ?

    1. Dear Karthik,
      After some online analysis, i came to a conclusion.
      Intel i5 2500k
      ASUS P8B75-M LE
      Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz 8 GB
      GeForce GTX 550Ti
      Samsung 2033SW 21.5 Inch
      Corsair TX650 V2 650 Watt PSU
      Cooler Master Elite 361 ATX

      Kindly advice on this configuration.

      Delete
    2. Aravind,

      For 3D and photo works, u need a very good CPU and a quadro GPU.

      1) Intel Core i5 2500k is better, only if u overclock.
      Else go for i5 2500 or i5 2400

      2) ASUS P8B75-M LE is a good Mobo, but it is a business model mobo, with 2 PCi x slot and 6Gbs SATA. which u may not use.

      Instead go for better ASUS P8H77-M LE with USB 3.0

      3) GPU : GTX 550Ti is good, if u also play games.
      But if u dont play games at all.
      Go for nVidia Quadro 400 or 600 (Rs.7k and 9.5k), which is designed for 3D works

      4) PSU : You dont need 650 watts Corsair TX650.
      Cooler Master GX 550W is enough

      5) Cooler Master Elite 361 ATX is a mini tower cabinet, go for bigger Mid-Tower cabinet like Cooler Master Elite 430

      RAM and Monitor are fine

      But still u can add a low-end GPU to play games at low-resolution

      1. Ur mobo supports GPU
      2. If u add a GPU only ur GPU will work, not ur on-board graphics.

      For ur SMPS, u can buy

      AMD HD 6670 - Rs.6.2k or
      AMD HD 6570 - Rs.5.4k

      With these GPU u can play most of the games in Low-Med settings

    1. Looks good, but 400 w PSU is not enough. Go for a decent 500w PSU

  89. Hii...

    I have zeroed in on these gpus:-
    550 ti
    hd 6770
    hd 7770
    My monitor:20" @ 1600x900
    Which card would let me play all games for a year at high settings?

  90. Hi Karthik, your forum has provided me a great insight on how to build one good computer. However I'm in a dilemma. Though i dream of a very good config but like many a people my budget too is very restricted.

    Below are my choice of parts:
    mobo - any intel z77/h77 chipset based
    CPU - core i5 2nd generation/3rd gen
    RAM - Corsair DDR3 4GB 1600MHz
    storage - Seagate 750GB
    optical drive - Samsung DVD writer
    smps - Zebronics 500W
    UPS - Numeric 600VA
    cabinet- zebronics intermediate series

    Will buy graphics card later.
    I really want a good rig.
    I couldn't zero in on the best combination.
    Can u suggest the appropriate parts for the above mentioned config and see if there's any chance of squeezing them under a 25k budget without compromising much on quality?

    I'll be really grateful, Karthik. Please reply soon.
