  7. core i3-2100 ---amd phenom II X4 955 BE --which one is the best processor ! all the benchmarking website report that core i3-2100 is better, but according to the rule amd has better L3 cache,clock speed of 3.2 ghz, 4cores & this core i3-2100(3.1 ghz) is a dual core only , how it can beat a quad core. i know that sandy bridge arch is a better one but its hard to digest?

    ReplyDelete
  8. @Anonymous,

    Good question :-)
    As u said in theory, Quad Core 3.2 GHz is faster than Dual core 3.1 GHz.

    But practically, core i3 is faster. The reason is the sandy bridge architecture.

    In Intel Core series, intel added the memory controller inside the processor itself. Where as in AMD it is added in the Motherboard, this make a big performance boost.

    So AMD reduced all its price very much and working on an alternative to compete with Intel

    ReplyDelete
  9. @^,
    Also that is not the only reason, even AMD has implemented it.
    The way it is implemented and other Intel new features like integrating graphics controller inside the processor, hyper technology etc also improves the performance vastely

  10. It's nice to see that you are utilising your expertise for the common persons. I want to update my existing Desktop. my requirement is Word Documents, Net surfing and high end games. Kindly suggest me the best PC. Let me know why Intel not AMD. I need fastest computer for this purpose. I don't need monitor hard drive etc. I will use old ones. If you suggest i will buy a branded PC excluding these items. If you could make a blog informative as this one: http://ssdtechnologyforum.com/threads/100-How-to-Select-The-Best-Desktop-PC-Configuration-At-Low-Price; it will help all.

    Since you are prefering Intel, I would like to know whether the choice is because it is fastest and processing many applications simultaneously despite it being higher energy consumer and getting hot early.

  36. @Jayanth, I dont understand why u need 8GB. 8 GB is useful only if u do professional photo and video work. check my blog for intel 50k, it will be enough for ur req

    ReplyDelete
  37. @TechnoPuzz, it will be a good option to go for i5 for 50k budget.

    Also u dont need 12 GB RAM, as it will be of no use.

    Also SSD does boost ur performance much.

    Other components check my 50k intel config blog

    ReplyDelete
  38. @Peak,
    No doubt go foe desktop for around 50k, with that u can rock in DOTA 2. Go for the Intel or AMD config for 50k

  39. OH... K.... BUT... WILL AL SORTS OF GAMES WORK WITH 4GB AND WAT ABOUT PROCESSOR??? I AM LOKKING FOR i7 AND EQUALANT....

    ReplyDelete
  40. @ Jayanth,
    Yes,4 GB is enough for any game. (If you do lot of parellel processing like video conversion, batch photo processing and play games at the same time, then u need lot of RAM)

    Processor : The best desktop processor at reasonable price is Intel Core i7-2600 3.4GHz - Rs. 15,000

  49. @sunny,

    MSI P67A-GD55 is good motherboard,
    But I does not recommend it for two reasons

    1) Costly
    2) You don't need SLI for 50k PC. I recommend SLI only in 1Lak PC.

    So go for a cheaper one.

  66. @Sharadraj and Anonymous ,

    Rs 20k or 25k is very less for gaming PC, you can build a config for it but u can play only at low resolution and low setting.

    Also AMD is better at that price range

    whats ur say?? i will do 5-6hrs gaming.want it to last atleast 5 years.will hp last 5 years if i keep temperatures below 80 C???

    ReplyDelete
  70. @balkeet, HP DV6 612TX looks like a decent laptop for gaming.

    But Note :
    Laptops are not powerful for high-end gaming, you can play at low-medium settings.

    5 years is too much even for desktops. (2-3 years max is fine)

    For Temp - you can use a good laptop cooler.

    ReplyDelete
  71. And do you think pc prices will go down after march budget????

    ReplyDelete
  72. @Balkeet,

    Hard Disk prices may not go down this year.

    General price hike is due to increase in dollar rate, only when that comes down the price will go down.

  87. HI Karthik - I got all the parts from Delta and assembled a computer. Came out very well. Very fast. Have installed Windows 7 on it. I also got a D-Link DWA 525 wireless network adapter but unfortunately it does not work. Have you had any experience with Wirless PCI network cards. Do you have any recommendations?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If it is a desktop, u can simply connect to the modem, isnt?

      Also D-Link DWA 525 is supported in Win 7. Try updating the driver.

      If u still need a Wi-Fi adapter, go for cheap USB Wi-Fi Adapters.

  93. Hi karthik, am sort of on a tight budget for my new build so am a little confused between the i3 and the i5.I've decided on the gpu to be nvidia gtx 550ti but not sure on the cpu front cause i went through a few websites n they seem to be giving conflicting reviews on the usefulness of a cpu in gaming n stuff, so my question to u is as above, will the cpu matter if i install the aforementioned gpu ( geforce 550ti ) ? Please help its urgent.

    1. CPU is not a big factor for gaming.
      - But Core i5 performs better in games
      - Also few games are CPU intensive (GTA 4, LA Noire)
      - If u r tight on budget go for i3, u wont miss a lot.

    i installed the gpu which u recommended. It is working properly.
    Thank You Very Much


    Now i am coming to the matter,
    For better gaming performance,
    i will update the windows drivers. Last time when i updated, the os(Windows 7 Ultimate) showed that it was not genuine.
    So, I am planning to buy an original os. My preference is Windows 7 Home Basic. Due to money shortage, i cant buy Windows 7 Professional.
    What are differences between Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Home Basic?
    Then i often play GTA 4 in my desktop. Will GTA 4 work in Windows 7 Home Basic ?
