nice AMD rig, two years ago you'd have had to pay like 1.2- 1.3 lakhs for a similar performing PC. Prices have gone down drastically over the years, especially those hyper expensive GPUs.

 

waiting to see your intel alternative.

nice one yesh, but you need to start looking at alternative ram solutions then transcend, with the rig going over 50 the ram has to be good.

Accept it or not, i7 is the best proc out there and is also most sought after proccy.

Though i7 920 looks good with a 15k price tag on it competing with any other extreme quadcore proccy... It has hidden costs of X58 mobo and DDR3 ram....

 

but If u want to make a good futureproof rig... there is no choice except i7 rite now...

 

So here is the cheapest i7 u can ever make....@65k

 

CPU:: i7 920 Rs 15500/-

core_i7_logo_1.png

Mobo:: MSI X58 pro Rs 13500/-

Ram:: Patriot low latency PSD34G1333K 4gb 1333Mhz DDR3 Rs5000/-

 

PSU:: Tagan Modular 800w BZ800w modular Rs8000/-

 

HDD+DVD:: Rs 4000/-

 

Case:: 6k Nzxt tempest shuld do the trick

GPU::Here are some options...

-ATI Radeon HD 4870 1gb Rs 13000/- usually...

 

-but rite now there is a galaxy GTX 275 OC version @ 13,500/- at techenclave

 

-Manli brand HD 4890 (reference card model) 13k also @ techenclave

 

crysis warhead GPU performances...warhead1920.gif

 

total @65k approx

 

pros::

-u are getting i7 experience for 65k

-gr8 value I must say..

 

cons::

-a lot of compromises

-6gb ram can make hell lot of difference

-inferior GPU than THE ROGUE ( considering 4870)

-if u get a gtx 275.. this board aint sli enabled but crossfire...

 

suggested upgrades:

-as I said 6gb can bring a LOT of difference..

-add another 5k to budget and get a good gfx card like gtx 285 or 4890 OC (keep checking ebay and techenclave .. with dollar value so less.. it aint a bad idea to import a better card)

- get a monster cooler like v8 or v10( if u have the money) and OC to atleast 3.2Ghz ( u can go upto 4.2 on air!!)...

 

future:: 4yrs max without touching a thing... 8-10yrs upgrading ram and GPU down the road...

 

my thoughts::

65k is slightly less (by 5k) to higer midrange segment and far away( by 15k) from actual midrange segment .... so it is well in budget and faaar away(35k) from enthusiast segment(the segment to which i7 belongs to!!!)

 

There is no doubt tht i7 is the best out there... clubbed with a gtx 275 ( if u take advantage of tht deal) it will certainly outperform THE ROGUE and costs only 10k more...

Hey athek, great thread! Now that both my laptops ( office and personal) have broken down... Am looking for something at home... Without internet at home, I think am suffocating!

 

Just one question - the sub25k pc, it will run Photoshop cs2 also if not properly, then at least decently right...?

 

Also I hope diablo 3 which is coming and Warcraft will run without any problems!

Hi guys,

 

what are your thoughts/comments on the below config ? Planning to run with Win 7 OS. Will be using for AV encoding/photoshopping/gaming/watching HD movies etc

 

Intel core i7 920 – 14800

Gigabyte X58UD3R – 14500

Transcend 2 x 2GB DDR2 800MHz – 2.2k

Cabinet: CoolerMaster HAF 922 - 6.5k

SMPS: Corsair TX 650W - 7k

Seagate 7200.12 500GB SATAII - 2.8k

Palit GTX 260 Core 216 Sonic - 11k

Benq 24" G2412HD - 11.6k

 

Can you help me improve or help decrease the cost, in case there's a cheaper/better option available ? How is phenom II compared to i7 ? I read that they give similar performance when it comes to gaming, and its a tad cheaper than i7 :naughty:

^^ Please help the guy buy a PC!

 

No more anti-PC posts... YAY! :naughty:

 

Config looks good to me BTW. Or you may wanna wait for the DX11 cards to be available.... which is happening very soon.

I am using Phenom II 940 Black Ed. with a MSI DKA 790GX Platinum Mobo and 2x2GB DDR2 Ram and an Palit HD 4850 Sonic Edition card (512 MB DDR5)... It runs all games perfectly and its quite good with encoding videos and with photoshop also... Why don't you check out some camparisons and reviews of the Phenom II 940... It gives almost the same performance for lesser cost...
