Hi Everybody...

I'm looking to buy a new desktop for myself and I need help in deciding what would be the best rig for the kind of work I'll be doing. The main purpose I would use this PC for would be movies, music, internet and sometimes games. Also I want to use this pc for long time minimum 5 years without performance problem. Please also check whether the parts I've chosen are compatible with each other.

Please i need your comments and advices about this system...

Thanks

what kind of budget do you have? i would avoid the i3/i5/i7 and go for the i7's on the 1366 socket. motherboards have far more features, and the i9's when they come out will be on the 1366 socket.

Hi there

The i3 540 is basically the new and improved Core2Duo. This is basically the latest machine in the dual core setup. It has 2 cores and 4 threads meaning it can fabricate a quad core, but it isn't a real quad core. If you're looking to upgrade yourself to a point of not requiring anything for at least the next 5 years, I have to say....you should really think about going with a true Quad core.

At the end of the day, this is most certainly a decent machine, but the i3's are at the bottom of the spectrum in Intel's new line of processors. I would also recommend at least 4GB of RAM.

Are you planning to build this machine yourself?

It is a little expensive for me to buy i5 or i7 and 1366 socket. this system is aprox 1000 USD in my country but it can change in other countries... because i didnt mentioned about my budget.
Whats your advice about buying i3 540 series or Q8400 core 2 quad 2.66 ghz which do you prefer?
my second question is about my graphic card... i dont know about it much? du u have an advice any other asus models with same price....
Which is better choose? 128bit/1024 Mb or 256 bit/512MB

Thanks again

no matter what you go for even with these specs you are going to want at least a 550 psu. that 420 is pushing it.

420 watts is very low for a computer today, it. you want at least 500 or above. i recommend no less than 550.

what sites are you looking at over there?
