hi are you not going to be putting in a graphics card? if you are then you definitely need a bigger power supply.

Thanks for the expert advice.
Firstly no graphic card, that's why I choose 9400 over 9400F.
I'm not into gaming, have none idea about hardware, just want custom built rig that would run W10 Pro 64 smoothly and last a while...
These specs were suggested by the local PC tech.
Yes, I want clarity for medical images..

Regards!

Hi , on second thought in you're expert opinion should I get a graphic card which probably the board supports...
Would it improve vs Intel built in graphics?
Which would you recommend, along with a bigger PSU?
That's less noisy and won't burn.. Some entry level one..
Any other suggestions/editing of the other hardware?

Thanks.

1. No gaming, besides that the usual stuff using W10 x64 MS OFF, surfing, medical imaging, occasionally watch a movie DVD/Blue ray.

2. Few people that I discussed the specs with, say it's a over kill. But PC tech says it's fine.....initially he recommended i5 9700K CPU.


My requirements are

1. A quiet, responsive machine that wouldn't hang or slow down, wont need tweaking and last a few years.

2. Like my Dell though quite old, still has none issues, but W10 x64 slows it down, drivers difficult to find etc. Need to customize/tweak quite a bit to make it run.

3. It runs W7 great, but the nvidia GTX 9590 has fried twice.........

Hope you know about my needs/requirements.

Care to recommend your expert thoughts what hardware should I get, IF its a overkill?

Thanks!

Now after knowing what I plan do to do and having read my mind what individual specs hardware would you recommend if you were in my place or wanted a custom built for yourself.

I'd appreciate that.

I can get a custom built in half the price, that might do the job...

But mine intention is to get something that's versatile, having options etc..

Thanks again!

So here's what I have for you doing some quick searching. The brands I have picked are all good and reputable. You only need 16 GB of RAM and a 500 GB SSD. If you are going to game or add a ton of data then get a 1 TB SSD or a 1/2 TB platter for spill over. No video card required since you aren't gaming. The CPU its self supports video onboard. The case should fit the cooler. I have the Evo 212 and it's been pretty decent. Others may have another opinion, but I bet what ever else is out there will only lower the temperature a few more degrees if that vs an Evo 212. Hardly worth the money to spend. Also, thermal grease is thermal grease. The fancy Arctic Silver stuff is just a few degrees difference then what the CPU cooler comes with. I used the stuff that came with my Evo 212 and my gaming temps are never over 80 F. I made sure the RAM was listed with the QVL (Qualified Vendor List) list for the motherboard. The case is really up to you, but I made sure the Evo 212 fits. You can add additional fans at the top. 3 x 120mm or 2 x 140mm.

You could go with the i5 9400 to save money. I'm just future proofing. It really is over kill.
