Hi, After reading forums, websites for 1 week I am still left with few doubts so posting a thread to clear my doubts altogether. Please check the following configuration of my new i7 pc and suggest better alternatives. (No Phenom) Only one request, please don't suggest anything priced 1-2k higher than the price of product I have selected and mentioned. 1) Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-EX58-EXTREME - Rs 21k --> Any idea whether CPU Cooler I have selected will work with this MB ? Since it comes with 2 additional Passive Coolers near CPU. --> If I use Water Cooling in future, will I have to do seperate cooling for both Northbridge (provided in MB) and CPU ? --> Please suggest, any less than 10k Water Cooling Kit for 1366. 2) Processor - Intel CORE i7 920, S-spec: SLBEJ, D0 Stepping - Rs 15k 3) Memory - Corsair Dominator TR3X6G1600C8D, 6GB Kit (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 MHz - Rs 14k --> If less than CAS 8 is there please tell me its price and no import idea, please. 4) Hard Disk - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12, ST31000528AS, 1 TB SATA, 32MB Cache - Rs 5.5k x 3 5) Monitor - Viewsonic VX2835WM 28" - Rs 28k --> In that price, anything better than this since Viewing Angle not good and may create problem if multiple viewers watch movie on it. --> Please, keep it more than 24". 6) Graphics Card - Zotac Geforce GTX 275 Amp! Edition, 896 MB DDR3 - Rs 18k --> I was searching for Native HDMI Card (Powercolor 4890 is there but performs less than GTX275) than using a converter but got only Galaxy Tri-Fan Variant, which isn't easy to get moreover its too big and cover other slots also. --> Does using DVI-HDMI Converter, makes any quality difference ? And whether HDMI gives more quality display than DVI ? --> EVGA GTX275 FTW Edition, where to get one ? 7) Cabinet - CoolerMaster HAF 932 - Rs 9.4K --> 3 HDD and min spacing b/w them, 2 Optical Drives, Water Cooling Compatibility needed Later - I thing more bays are needed. --> So, please suggest a better alternative. 8 ) Power Supply Unit - CoolerMaster Real Power Pro 1000Watt - Rs 12k --> I hope it will do fine with all the peripherals (Tri SLI Later) I have mentioned. 9) Blu Ray Drive - LG GGC - H20LK Blu-Ray Disk/HD-DVD Rom - Rs 7k --> Best one with both Blue-Ray & HD-DVD capability, used everywhere at Toms. But, where to get one ? 10) DVD Drive - LG GSA-H55N - 1.2k --> I think 22X is the fastest one available now. But, which is the best one available, exact model no ? 11) Keyboard - Microsoft Sidewinder X6, Logitech G15 V2 Gaming Keyboard Second Generation, 19.5" x 10.5" - Rs 4k, Rs 4.4k --> Is G15 V2 available (released 2007) ? --> Which one has Soft Keys like Laptops since I am used to them ? 12) Mouse - Logitech G9 Laser, Logitech G5 Laser - Rs 5k, Rs 2.9k 13) Sound Card - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Gamer - Rs 5.5k --> I have noticed new entrants (like Asus) have come but confused which one is best under 6k ? --> And moreover, read somewhere that low version of Creative X-Fi are actually Audigy since they don't have the same Chip as higher variants. I hope Gamers Edition has. 14) Speakers - Altec Lansing MX5021E, 2.1, Logitech X-540, 5.1, Creative Inspire T7900, 7.1 - Rs 6.5k, Rs 6k, Rs 6.8k --> Please suggest one available with remote as I am going to watch movies regularly. --> Where one can get Harman Kardon Speakers ? I love the transparent Soundstick II but at 12.5k and only 40RMS than 90RMS of Lansing. 15) Printer - HP Photosmart C3188 - 5.5k --> Any cheap Color Laser alternative ? --> Are Laser more economical in the long run ? Their Ink cost ? 16) Input Device - Wacom Bamboo 4 "x 6 " Drawing Pen Tablet, Wacom Bamboo Fun 4 "x 6 " Drawing Pen Tablet, Wacom Bamboo 6 "x 9 " Fun Drawing Pen Tablet - Rs 4k, Rs 5.5k, Rs 8.5k 17) TV Tuner Card - Leadtek WinFast PVR3000 Deluxe - Rs 4k --> Any better one which can be fitted in my MB ? --> Can TATA Sky work with it ? 18) UPS - APC BR1100VA 660Watt - Rs 6.5k --> Does UPS need to do same Watt as Power Supply ? 19) Webcam - Logitech Quickcam Messenger - Rs 1.7k 20) Thermal Compound - Arctic Cooling MX-2, 4 gms, OCZ Freeze - Rs 400, Rs 475 --> Which one among the two and won't spill over like Arctic Silver ? 21) CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper N620, - Rs 3.3k --> Same query as MB one ? 22) RAM Cooler - OCZ XTC Cooler - Rs 1.1k x3 23) Cooling Fan Upgrade - Scythe S-Flex SFF21F 120mm 1600rpm - Rs 850 x3 26) Headphone - Rs 3k --> Please suggest, I have no idea.
