1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run?
ERDAS, ArcInfo, Oracle, Adobe suite (PS, LR, Premier pro)
Not much of a gamer really.
The PC will remain on for days together after image processing batches are queued up.
2. What is your...
Here's what I have to buy for now.
Cabinet NZXT gamma (not changing this option) + GPU + couple of 120mm fans (they aint cheap exactly )
For the GPU, might be running dual screens sometime later this year. Budget not exceeding 6.5k by any means for the card.
Purpose & Requirements
Alright a friend of mine needs a desktop on a tight budget.
22k for everything. Will be used for mostly movies and playing songs so onboard sound proccy should be good. Preferrably having a 7.1 output on the backpanel.
I suppose an AMD config will just do fine, although I have no idea on which...
Config (with prices in bracket):-
AMD Athlon II X4 620 (2.6 Ghz) [5,400]
ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO [6,900]
Transcend 2GB DDR3 (1333) Value RAM [ 2,500]
WD Caviar Green 500GB [2,500]
Sony Optiarc DVD RW 22x 
Coolermaster Real Power Pro 460W [3,560]
Zebronics Bijli Cabinet. [1,600]
Just wanted to know which would be the best LCD panel to use (DVI Input) within 10K.
main priority is Photoshop CS3 and Movies.
Oh and budget can vary from time to time sooo :D
Could anyone list the best displays / price range ?
Alright, I just happened to view my system properties and I saw
And Also in ASUS's PC Probe under WMI
But Everest Ultimate Edition shows:-
Now why do both Windows and Asus Pc Probe show the cores (all four of them) to be running at 783 Mhz ? :???: While Everest reports all of them...
