Help to Configuring a PC?

By sk8rboy19 ·
I'm thinking of building a PC (to be used mostly for running Adobe products, photoshop the most), having trouble in deciding the components...
The components that are required are an i7 processor family core, 64bit mobo (preferably with 6Gbs SATA, good overclocking options, preferably without an onboard graphics card), min 4-8 GB of DDR2/3.
Now with all the tons of stuff out there, I'm pretty much feeling like Alice in wonderland, can anyone suggest a configuration?


PS: I live in India, so it might be possible that the stuff you name/suggest may not be available locally, so if possible can you guys also post links to online tech shop that you have transacted with? (with not very heavy int'l shipping charges - have to keep it cheap too)

Well I'll admit to having a weakness for Gigabyte Products

So I love the X58 Chip Set Series of M'Boards. Almost any of those would fill your needs easily.

I also like Antec Power Supplies and cases as I find them simply the best I have ever used which offer the best protection tot he Electronics inside the case and excellent cases which do not cut your fingers and are well designed.

As all of these are freely available in most parts of the world I would believe that you will not have many problems sourcing what you want though you may need to look at some of the high end shops if you are going for the more expensive bits.

New Build.

by tomjh704 In reply to Help to Configuring a PC?


I recently built a computer similar to the specifications you are after, but I adjusted the build to meet your needs.

Intel Core i7-2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) Quad-Core Processor**15071

ASRock HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 Memory

Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Hard Drive

LITE-ON Black CD/DVD Burner

Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply

ZALMAN CNPS9500 AT 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink

The case is more personal preference than any other component so I will just leave that up to you. This build will cost around $900 plus whatever you pay for the case. All in all you will pay under $1000 for one **** of a PC!

I buy all my parts from Newegg, as do most of the online tech community; they are extremely reliable and well priced . If you have any questions feel free to ask.

P.S.- Check out this site if you want more help and to learn more about new system builds:
