    Default Configuraion Compatibility

    Hi all
    I joined the forum today. I read a post on buying the gpu. I also going to buy a low budget pc... for graphic design + video editing + 3d animation ( no matter is it (photoshop cs3 / cs4, premier cs3 / cs4,max 9 / max 7)

    and in spare time a bit game play (POP, SOF, Max payne, Brian lara 2007) a bit.

    What do you think about my following configuration?

    1) Mobo :Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L/Asus P5N73-AM/ ?
    2) CPU : Intel Dual Core - E5200
    3) RAM :Kingston 2GB DDR2 PC-800MHz
    4) GPU :Zotac 9600GT/?
    5) HDD :WDC 320 GB S-ATA 3.5" Hard Drive
    6) DVD writer :
    7) PSU :VIP Silver 500W /?
    8) DISPLAY :Benq 15" Wide Screen TFT LCD Monitor
    9) UPS:Frontech 600VA UPS
    10) CAB : Zebronics BIJLI

    Budget within 25000/- Rs

    I would strongly suggest that u go for atleast 4GB RAM, a min of a 19" LCD(costs only 6.5k) and go for a 9500GT instead of 9600GT(save cash).

    Reasons:

    For graphic design, u need loads of RAM, i dont think graphic cards help that much. Save money by buying a 9500GT instead of a 9600GT(save approx 3k)

    See, if u can get a higher end processor, for video editing u need a processor with more cache. The E5200 has just 2MB of it.

    Or, try the following config:

    AMD Phenom 550 X2(3.1GHz,1MB L2 Cache,6MB L3 cache) Rs 6000
    Biostar TA790GXB Motherboard : Rs 5000
    4GB DDR2 800MHz RAM : Rs 3500
    320GB SATA : Rs 2300
    19" Benq/LG/Acer :Rs 6500
    Optical drive: Rs 1100
    Case W/PSU : Rs 2000
    this comes up to approx 26k.
    This PC uses an ATI 3300 on board graphics card. Good enough for the types of games u have mentioned.

    Advantages:
    Processor is a lot faster than the E5200. Also, if u get Lucky, u can unlock the other cores and make it a QUAD CORE. The extra cache will help u.

    More RAM is good. Since we are using onboard video, no need to get a seperate PSU, use the one that comes with the case.

    Overall i feel this rig is gonna be better for ur needs.

    u can go for any. The GXE has 128MB of onboard GDDR3 memory for ur onboard GPU. The Cheaper one is GXB, go for that imo.
