Hey people,

with reference to this thread:
http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/showthread.php?t=125193

i am posting this thread as i will be buying new rig in month of may-june...

As the budget is pretty high so i am kinda pre-planning from now as i dont wanna waste money...I am planning to go for either alienware or assembled....Okay so here are the requirement details

budget:200k-250k for assembled(including monitor ,keyboard and mouse)
for alienware it is 300k..

Primary purpose would be extremely high end gaming..I would also be using it for music,videos ,video editing etc...

I want it to be future proof for atleast 5 years and i am sure it could be with this amount...


Please suggest rig for the same and let me know if anything else you people wanna know...

I've a little experience in assembling and to be honest,my previous experience wasnt good that is why i have kept alienware in mind..

Anyways talks apart, let me know the config..

Thanks...

I think u should wait for Nvidia's fermi architecture based graphics cards.(as they are releasing in march end- april first week)
They might be better than the HD5970.

Thanks for nice config sarkar,

i think it should have i7 980 instead of 920 and may be i could cut down the cost in cabinet and mouse keyboard...

And Sam,

And Sam,

little change in config will be nice for you. heres krishnandu.sarkar's config + little modification:

Core i7 920 + Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 @ 34k ---> i7 930 + ASUS Rampage II Gene (cool mobo)
F3-12800CL6T-6GBTD G.SKILL DDR3 PC12800 6GB (2GB x 3) @ 13k
2*1 TB WD Black @ 9.9k
Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler @ 4.7k ---> water cooler. asigh recommended.
Sapphire HD5970 1GB GDDR5 @ 38k ---> more like 2 X HD5870 in crossfire, after fermi releases.
DELL U2410 @ 26k ---> why so costly monitor? 3way crossfire of 20" monitors, Eyefinity.
Corsair Obsidian 800D:CC800DW @ 19k ---> little cheaper case will work good, isn't?
Corsair HX1000 @ 14.8k ---> +1. will need.
Razer Tarantula @ 5.5k ---> another good choice.
Logitech G9 Laser @ 5k ---> Steel Series also giving terrific deals.
Razer Sphex World Elite Edition Gaming Grade Desktop Skin @ 1.1k
LG 8X BLURAY 8X MODEL WH08LS 20K @ 11.5k
ASUS Xonar DX @ 4.5k ---> no need. Asus mobo got good sound.
Logitech Z-5500 5.1Ch @ 18k

i not know what total cost will be but i think overall combo is slight better, price almost same.

@ashu, this thread is not a discuesstion on Nehalemsss but an advice thread about a rig, which we keep getting all the time, also its an indivisual's thread and who would want his attention about his system he is planning to get, which I believe people would agree would kinda get lost in a Nehalem discuession thread there. Also there was nothing to "report" as such......so apologies but I suggest we continue.....

Getting back to OP.....

I am very much with sam.shaib on the suggestion except few minor changes......

Core i7 920 + Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 @ 34k

---> i7 930 + ASUS Rampage II Gene (cool mobo)

Would go with sam.shaib except ASUS Rampage II Extreme and as he said is an AWSOME board if one can afford (which OP can per budget)

Difference ASUS Rampage II

1. Support NVIDIA 3-Way SLI/ATI CrossFireX Technology

2. ADI® AD2000B 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC
SupremeFX X-Fi Audio Card

plus is an OCing friendly board which GENE is not


F3-12800CL6T-6GBTD G.SKILL DDR3 PC12800 6GB (2GB x 3) @ 13k

With such a high budget never look any where except Corsair Dominator or XMS3

My suggestion Corsair Dominator GT PC3-16000 6GB Kit 7-8-7-20 (CMG6GX3M3A2000C7). Runs at 2000Mhz

Sapphire HD5970 1GB GDDR5 @ 38k ---> more like 2 X HD5870 in crossfire, after fermi releases

My suggestion tripple crossfire with HD5870 or single HD5990 (launchng soon) gives a staggring 300+Gbps bandwidth (dont know which one would lead though as rarely anyone benchmarks such beasts)

DELL U2410 @ 26k ---> why so costly monitor? 3way crossfire of 20" monitors, Eyefinity.

With so much cash in hand why would one go for HD res on a 24". should not be anythnig less than 30" @ 2560 x 1600.

My suggestion DELL ULTRASHARP 3008WFP or dual/triple monitors also can be an option but I always prefer one single monitor with max resolution. other option to consider can be to get a Full HD 47"/50" LCD but this is purely for gaming, coz working on windows is a pain to the eyes..... even if the resolution is HD (my personal openion though)

Corsair Obsidian 800D:CC800DW @ 19k ---> little cheaper case will work good, isn't?

Yep agree with Sam.Shaib......a 10K-12K Case would do just good....

My suggestion Antec 1200 or CM Cosmos

Razer Tarantula @ 5.5k ---> another good choice.

My suggestion Razer Lycosa....... major difference backlit Keyboard which helps a lot in gaming with lights switched off.

Logitech G9 Laser @ 5k ---> Steel Series also giving terrific deals.

My suggestion would again be Razer Copper Head................. what a mouse it is


Rest are all same are mentioned by Sam.Shaib....

@ashu

sorry bro.I didnt know it but i am just assembling a pc and for that i am asking suggestion. :)

@both Sams,

thanks alot guys will consider these suggestions.:d

btw,

why aint anyone suggesting i7 975 or i7 980?

I mean aint those procs good?
 

vickybat

I am the night...I am...
Those are super expensive.Go for the 980 as its got 6 physical cores and currently is the fastest cpu.Expect around 50k or more for the cpu price alone!

Even with 80K can get you a PC where you can enjoy high end gaming, IMHO. And with your total budget, you can buy new PC every two years and always be latest with tech (as well as recoup quite an amount of money by selling the older PCs).

Thanks sam.shab and sam9s

I'm suggesting a config for this high budget for the first time......May b i'm wrong at some positions. Actually even I was thinking about the monitor that time as everyone commented.

@OP if you want the best
i7- Extreme i7-965 @ 53k
Gigabyte EX58 Extreme @ 21k
Or the ASUS Rampage II Extreme @ 21k

How about Nitrogen Cooling??

The RAM I suggested has latency 6-7-6-18. You can go for corsair if you find something better. I've no idea about it. Sorry if I'm wrong.

And as everyone suggested wait sometime if you can till the Fermi releases.

I am not a dealer of roccat :) but i love them over razer products in looks, easy to use/handle & quality :) Ur budget pretty well so i think may be this r bit costly but surely a worth products for ur high end pc. Check other gaming products from roccat as well as u want ur rig for high end gaming. Good Luck.

Go for this config for 2.5L :

1. Core i7 920 - 15k

2. Asus Rampage II Extreme - 20k

3. F3-12800CL6T-6GBTD 1600mhz - 12.5k

4. 2x Sapphire ATI HD 5870 1GB - 50k

5. 2x WD Caviar Black 1TB - 10k

6. CM Real Power Pro 1250W - 15k

7. NZXT LEXA S / LAN COOL PC K-62 - 5k / 7k

8. ASUS BC-1205PT BD - 9.5k

9. Noctua NH-D14 SSO CPU Cooler -5k

10. Alienware OPTX AW2310 -25k

11. Steel series siberia v2 / razer megaladon / Logitech Z550

12. Sidewinder x6 / razer lycosa - 5.5k

13. Steel series Ikari optical / Razer Deathadder v2 - 4k

14. Steel Series 5L / 9HD Hard Mat - 5k

If you want to get a hard gaming mat go for that or ELSE get

Steel Series QCK Heavy / QCK Mass for 2k



ALSO : Don't go for the Razer Copperhead as it has been discontinued and many tracking issues were reported with the mouse behaving abnormally after a firmware update. I have personally used the mouse and found it good , sold it later got a new Steel Series Intelli 3.0 .

The Steel Series Ikari optical has the highest tracking FPS, alongiwth the legendary Microsoft Intelli 3.0 i.e. 9000FPS+ so it gives unparalleled tracking against the other competitors.


Total works to about 221.5k so you can add some additional cooling and case mods that would be about 225k total .



---------- Post added at 01:27 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:22 PM ----------

Personally i have all this gaming hardware with me :

Mice :

1. Steel Series intelli 3.0

2. Razer Deathadder v1

3. Steel series Ikari optical


Mats :

1. Everglide DKT monster mat / Fnatic

2. Steel series qck + mym edition / sk gaming / fnatic edition

3. Steel series qck heavy

4. Steel series 5L warcraft 3 special edition


Keyboard :

1. Microsoft Reclusa

2. Sidewinder x6

3. Razer Arctosa / Lycosa



Sound :

1. Razer piranha

2. Razer carcarriaas

3. Steel series siberia neckband

4. Steel series siberia

I suggest that u totally water cool this PC....And in that budget u may get great Water Colling Kits...

+1. the entire pc can be water cooled at such a budget. very much possible.

How about Nitrogen Cooling??

OP have to specially order a refrigerator capable of keeping nitrogen in liquid form. still good choice :smile:

Even with 80K can get you a PC where you can enjoy high end gaming, IMHO. And with your total budget, you can buy new PC every two years and always be latest with tech (as well as recoup quite an amount of money by selling the older PCs).

+1.

btw,

why aint anyone suggesting i7 975 or i7 980?

I mean aint those procs good?

if you thinking about core i7 975, better invest the money on the Core i7 980X Gulftown. the performance diff between 975 & 920/930 can be achieved simply by OC'ing the processor.

@ashu, this thread is not a discuesstion on Nehalemsss but an advice thread about a rig, which we keep getting all the time, also its an indivisual's thread and who would want his attention about his system he is planning to get, which I believe people would agree would kinda get lost in a Nehalem discuession thread there. Also there was nothing to "report" as such......so apologies but I suggest we continue.....

+1. true. that thread basically for Nehalem or i* proccies only. here an entire system is being configured.

Getting back to OP.....

I am very much with sam.shaib on the suggestion except few minor changes......

Would go with sam.shaib except ASUS Rampage II Extreme and as he said is an AWSOME board if one can afford (which OP can per budget)

Difference ASUS Rampage II

1. Support NVIDIA 3-Way SLI/ATI CrossFireX Technology

2. ADI® AD2000B 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC
SupremeFX X-Fi Audio Card

plus is an OCing friendly board which GENE is not

oops. missed it actually. i was considering Gene cause it mATX & also a bit cheaper than the Extreme.

My suggestion tripple crossfire with HD5870 or single HD5990 (launchng soon) gives a staggring 300+Gbps bandwidth (dont know which one would lead though as rarely anyone benchmarks such beasts)

Triple Crossfire with HD5870. are you serious? oh man. 2 X HD5870 = HD5990 in performance. maybe HD5990 may have slight edge due to double the amount of ram. but 3 X HD5870 will put even Fermi to shame.

With so much cash in hand why would one go for HD res on a 24". should not be anythnig less than 30" @ 2560 x 1600.

My suggestion DELL ULTRASHARP 3008WFP or dual/triple monitors also can be an option but I always prefer one single monitor with max resolution. other option to consider can be to get a Full HD 47"/50" LCD but this is purely for gaming, coz working on windows is a pain to the eyes..... even if the resolution is HD (my personal openion though)

totally depends on what OP prefers. 3 X 22" HD's or 1 X 30" super HD. but 3 X 22" HD looks better with 3 X HD5870's. 1 card powering 1 monitor.

I suggest stick with a Larger Monitor or stick with a Small single monitor for gaming and normal apps.... also 2x5870 ?? it wont be that useful the new HD 5970 4GB Asus Ares/ Sapphire is much more than what these can do ....

And as everyone suggested wait sometime if you can till the Fermi releases.

Is there a major difference in benchmarks between 965 and 980, if not 965 is the way to go......as 980 is way too expensive.
Also people keep suggesting water/nitrogen cooling but OP hasn't even mentioned OCing, Water cooling is advisable only for very high end overclocking, not just because we have extra money for it. OP might not even be comfortable with it.
About Fermi....yea wait if you want, though I am not optimistic about it.
