Not open for further replies.
Hey guys n gals,
iam new to these forums.
Iam planning to buy a new desktop pC for myself,in dis week.
My budget is 70K.which would be a gaming rig_multimedia powerhouse
Following are my considerations:
MOST IMPORTANT CRITERION:
1.Ive a small dorm,,dunno whether to go for 2.1 or 5.1 speaker setup
But wotever I go for,,crisp quality is of utmost importance
(A)With 2.1-wud prefer Altec lansing MX5021 or Logi Z2300 or Klipsch ProMedia
(B)with 5.1-wud prefer Z5500 or klipsch 5.1(if its available in India)+xtreme gamer sound card(sound card wid 5.1 setup only)

2.monitor-Dell US 2009W (15K).period
3.RAM=4GB
4.HDD=250GB WD CAviar
5.Please suggest graphics card(wid bst bang for buck-HD4850 alike),CPU(is quadcore worthy enuf of gaming,or in future)+MObo(dont need much features)_I want best bang for buck from these,,not ultra high performance!
6.mouse-GX518 from logi is fine,as I own Xbox360.

please give the price of each component,brand,etc. including cabinet,supply etc.
but near 70k in total.


P.S.-Sorry for Double Post,,didnt knew where to post it xactly,,

^^ even if they cost more, their introduction will bring in price cuts from AMD's linueup and Intel's core2duo and core2quad lineup and hence it's worth the wait.

please look into my afterthoughts:
I think xtreme gamer wud be better souncard in terms of gaming,as compared to xtreme music.
9600 GT is definitely not VFM,considering HD 4850!!
About the HDD:it's not VFM that I need to consider,I want a descently fast HDD..than one which offers best cost/per gb,,so am ready to sacrifice few GBs for better performance!
Logi has stopped Z5300,I think!!!
I dnt want to spend on G-15 for xtra buttons,any other descent keyboard wud go!

Get this if it fits in your budget.
One suggestion,
Get the Q9550 for 14.8k instead of the Q9300.

Otherwise, you can bring down the 4870 to a 4850, then let the Q9300 be.

I would go with 4850,for it's VFM..and I would like to have a descent VFM Mobo than a crossfire MOBO-I have different ideology for Gfx cards upgrade!
and is Q9300 worth it's salt upGRADE from Q6600,considering that I dont plan to overclock my processor.
but that apart,you have given a good config as per my requirements...
 

desiibond

Bond, Desi Bond!
There is lot of performance difference between Q6600 and Q9300. Q6600 has become old.

if you don't want crossfire board, go for Asus P5Q (8k) or MSI P45 Neo (5k-6k)

HD4870 in my opinion is more VFM than HD4850.

The difference between the two cards is around 6k right now but the performance difference is huge.

You can blow crysis off with full eye candy on in Highdef mode. You can do that with HD4850. You can play it on HD4850 with full eye candy on till 1600x1200 resolution, not at fullHD.

But I plan on buying a 20" Ultrasharp 2009W (DELL)
FullHD doesnt make,much visible difference from 720p and higher untill the screen size is sizeably more(found on bigger HDTVs)_I read this on some AV forum...
If it does then I need to invest in LG L26W(PVA) panel (last i saw on lg website,twas 24.7k) and Dell E2408WFP(TN) panel is no-no..if i dont get sizeable quality improvement from my 20",(apart from xtra 4inches real estate)

Bond, Desi Bond!
hmm. What happens when you watch a FullHD movie on a 20"???

You lose lot of detail and fyi 720p is not trueHD. 1920x1080 is the resolution for real HD a.k.a FullHD

Monitor is one peripheral that you don't upgrade every now and then and that is why get the best that you can pay for.

248WFP costs around 17k and is the best VFM.

Yeah that's why i wrote 720p and full hd as different.
Ok,while watching a full HD movie,,using the ffd show filter,,one can set 1080p ..and the GFX card,,antialiases that pic,,to 1680*1050(max monitor resolution)..offering in affect a better pic quality!
And given two similar specced displays,,it would be difficult to visually distinguish between 1080p and 720p on even a 24"
So,
I dont want to go for 1080p for just some marketing bling ,,untill that provides "real" eyecandy on features like color gamut,contrast ratio,,or response time..etc,,alike lg l246W,I coudnt find it's price on ITWARES,,though..
But,
That again wud mean better gfx card(4870),better mobo,better smps,better cabby..So bigger cost in-effect,,hence xceeding my budget!

But ,if you have really some viable option, with this+ good speaker setup..Iam willing to dump the soundcard though(considering,it;s minor improvement for 2.1)..that wud be highly appreciated!
Or ELSE,
Since I have a descent enuf setup(in all other regards),I would prefer to go for 2.1 Amplifier setup..albeit without Sound card,,

Every single person shouts that 720p is marketing gimmic for HD def and that real HD is 1080p.

anyways, I can't explain anymore. I clearly know the real advantages of 24" display and when I make the change, I go for a 24" display.

If you think of buying a huge display for a PC think again, buying a 32" TV and 32" computer monitor is totally different.

24" computer monitor is a pretty good in terms of size and something like 30" and above will be really hard on your eye and you have to sit few feet away from the display and use wireless k/b and mouse. And it will be totally destructive.

That is why 24" hits the sweet spot of best VFM FullHD display for computers.

Ok,while watching a full HD movie,,using the ffd show filter,,one can set 1080p ..and the GFX card,,antialiases that pic,,to 1680*1050(max monitor resolution)..offering in affect a better pic quality!

Well what can I say. I can't argue anything when you say that pic quality increases by downscaling the image. huh.

FYI, downscaling fullHD to 720p reduces the image quality. It reduced the number of pixel and that results in quality loss or compression of image.

My end of explaination!!!!

I Think NVIDIA 9600GT Is A Nice Card As Compared To Future Gaming. Future Gaming Like Crysis At Least Needs NVIDIA 9600GT. For Smooth Game Play. ATi HD4850 Is Also Nice, Go As U Wish.

And Go For Any Wireless Keyboard. As U R A Gamer...
