My name is Jon and I am trying to built desktop computer for my business,
The PC is going to be used primarily for data and i take alot of images and store them in the computer.another important aspect would be that the pc be able to handle multi tasking since I have more than one window open and I work on separate one semantically. I research a lot, I came with the following hardware I would like your opinion as well as your suggestion. For the this PC, I am looking to built a PC with Intel chip : Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K, with either 8gig or 16gig? The memory ram I was going use CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B, but after reading your recommendation regarding memory I like to choose Crucial?!, regarding power supply Some good brands to look for are: PC Power and Cooling, Enermax, Antec, and Tagan but I couldn’t fined which would be a good choice for me? The motherboard I found ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard. As for video card I like to have at least 1 gigabyte of video card I have found EVGA 012-P3-1472-AR GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) Super Clocked 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card but Would appreciate a suggestion from you. Finally I found this tower Antec Nine Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case? Hard drive Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive. For the dvd and cd drive I am not to concern about Sony will do just fine.
If that's what you want get it, but you didn't mention anything that requires that much power. You never mentioned games at all, yet are getting a gaming graphics card. You could get an H67 motherboard if that's the case. The onboard graphics of Sandybridge is more than good enough. Then put that money toward an SSD. If you're looking for a power supply, I'd suggest a Corsair TX. You can't go wrong there. As he said, memory overkill. You don't really need more than 4 unless you're gaming, photo or movie editing.
I was thinking the same thing Nacelle. The build he put together along with Wingless's suggestions is a high end build. It honestly sounds like WAY more than is needed. Jon will you be gaming on the PC at all? For standard office use I would go with an H67 and no video card unless you plan on gaming on it. Same with ram, unless you will be doing a lot of photo or video editing you shouldn't need more than 4 gigs of ram.
As for the ram you can't really go wrong with crucial or corsair. I normally use Crucial for two reasons. I love the lighting they have on their Ballistix Tracer lineup and Crucial is always nice about providing ram when needed for my testing. As long as you avoive generic brands you should be fine.
If he is using Photoshop or any Adobe products from CS4 and on, a nice nvidia based video card can help. I know for sure that Photoshop and After Effects will use CUDA if its availble to speed up rendering.
