15-Sep-2013 - New Haswell config


  1. Hello ,I m About to build a graphics Machine Next primary software are MAYA, MAX ,After effects ,Fusion ,Nuke ,Realflow , And of course
    For Gaming COD,Sniper E Lite,Max Payne 3.
    I m Confused about i7 And AMD 8 Cores.pls Provide me a good configuration around 45-50k without monitor.

    1. PC component prices are very high now. It is not possible to build a complete machine with i7 and good GPU for 45-50k.

      Better go for the above config. Remove Speakers, go for cheaper cabinet.

    2. A friend needs some help on a motherboard. I have suggested the Biostar Motherboard H77MU3/ HI-FI A85W under 35. It supports Intel I3,I5,I7 has a solid capacitor,DVI-HDMI, Direct X11,HDCP,SATA RAID 0,1,5,10 and comes with a 3 Years National warranty. I think its should be a good buy for him.Do you agree?

    3. I believe Biostar is a good model and you should fo for it. A new model Hi-Fi H81S2 supports advanced computer gaming like Bicoin mining as well...though m not so clued on this particular gaming...more suggestions are welcomed..

    4. but Rupa can u be more specific so that people can help you? Your friend needs a motherboard for what purpose? Work,gaming?Is he building a PC?
