    Assistance with motherboard & monitor selection for an i5 spec

    Thanks, nac. just so if at all this helps someone, I did try changing the windows 7 drive letter to D and windows startup repair came to the rescue fixing some boot issues that I did have the next time the system started. Now, all is fine as expected.

    Assistance with motherboard & monitor selection for an i5 spec

    Hopefully, the dell will come within the total budget as it seems to be fine configuration wise apart from some settings tweak required with nvidia and intel gpu's. Final and I would say 'the biggest concern' is now the UPS. Only when trying to search an appropriate UPS for this build, did I...

    Assistance with motherboard & monitor selection for an i5 spec

    Thank you for the replies, all. I do not have the market prices of the selected components as of now and estimation was done based on web prices. To better explain my preferences above, the budget initially was 50,000 only and the sole reason I posted a stretched budget was in order to get a...
