know there must be a lot of threads here asking for help on assembling computers, so thanks a lot if you even bothered to open this!
On the topic; I am mostly illiterate about computers and as mentioned this is the first time I am trying this, so right now I don't even have a full list of hardware, but more general inquiries. I apologise if some of the stuff or all of the stuff mentioned sounds stupid or too far off, all help and corrections will be much appreciated.
Also, I live in India so I would be ordering from these sites(or trying retail): www.flipkart.comwww.theitdepot.comwww.homeshop18.com
My Budget is ~Rs. 90,000. I want to be able to run most modern games like Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite, etc. on high or near high settings. The items listed below are those I managed to pick out so far and the queries regarding them, if you know of better items or if some of these are just stupid choices then PLEASE point it out.
Processor: I am thinking between Intel 3.5 GHz LGA1150 4770K i7 4th Gen
(~Rs. 23500) or Intel 3.5 GHz LGA1155 Core i7 3770K
(~Rs. 21000), there is some price difference between the two, looking at AnandTech and a few other sites for bench marks comparison, the 4770K
seems clearly a bit better but does it really make much of a difference for gaming? *Note on AMD processors*
: I see that AMD prcoessors, especially the FX series, are very popular among people, going by discussions regarding assembling I read here and on other forums that is, however on comparison with Intel a)I find there is a monumental price difference; most 6-core AMD processors are at ~Rs 7500, that too with better specs like cache, etc. b) but, on making benchmarks comparison with the 4-core i7 3770K
, AMD's 6-core processors seem far behind. SO, is the ~11k price difference worth it? Or are there AMD processors that, though much behind Intel's, in themselves offer good enough performance for running heavy games? If so I would go with an AMD processor as it really saves a lot of money, which may be used to get better specs on other items, but I don't want to compromise TOO much on performance.
Motherboard: So far I have narrowed it to ASRock Z77 Extreme 6 Motherboard
(~Rs.13500) and Intel DH77EB Motherboard
(~Rs. 6800), again there is a substantial price difference and I am confused regarding which one would be more optimal for each brand of processor. BUT BUT, I haven't done a lot of searching around for motherboards, so there may be way better options out there, so please share!
RAM: Corsair Vengence 8GB X 2
Secondary Memory: 1 X 256 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD, 500 GB HDD.
GPU: No idea.
Case, cooling system, power supply: No idea.
OS: Windows 7/8.
Again, the items listed above are those I managed to pick out so far and the queries regarding them, if you know of better items or if some of these are just stupid choices then PLEASE point it out. Be gentle!
Thanks again for taking time to read through all this.
