I'll be using my computer for basically everything. Programs, watching HD movies, gaming (from oldest to newest games). So a bit of everything.
I will reuse my old case, my 2 HDDs, graphics card (HD 4770) which is stil acceptable until I get more money (probably GTX 560 Ti) and 550 W PSU.
I will most likely buy parts from this site http://www.hoh.de here's a google translated site http://translate.goo...tp://www.hoh.de
What I am preferring are Intel CPUs, motherboards with USB 3.0, SATA III, 1600 Mhz RAM support, at least 8 GB 1600 MHz RAM.
I am not a big fan overclocking so I don't need it aswell as dual graphics cards.
So here are the parts I envisioned. If you have better suggestions or corrections please let me know. I'm still a bit of a noob with chipsets and compatibility.
Intel Core i5 3550 4x3.30GHz So1155 Box Ivy Bridge
MSI Z68A-G43 (G3) Z68 Sockel 1155 ATX DDR3
Kingston 8GB KIT PC3-12800 DDR3-1600 HyperX blu 2x4GB
http://www.hoh.de/ha...u-2x4gb?c=38911 This one has XMP profile? Will it be 1600 Mhz at start or will I need to overclock it? I'm not familiar with this.
So total price of this combo is 303,88 .
What do you think?
