Report RSS Getting a New PC

Posted by on

I'm about to get a new PC. Not sure if it would do for gaming though.
But it's probably going to be delivered this week. My only concern is
that I'm not sure that it would do for some games. Anyway here's the
specs:
Processor: Intel Core i5-2500 (6M Cache, 3.30GHz)
Chipset: Intel H61
Standard Memory: 4GB DDR3 PC-10600
Max Memory: 8GB (2 DIMMs)
Video Card: NVIDIA Geforce GT520 (Or was it GTS520?) 1GB
Audio: Integrated
Hard Drive: 1TB Serial ATA, 7200 RPM

Any hints would be appreciated!

A good specs for daily use, but it's a bit odd when you use an i5 with a lo-mid GPU, i suggest you to pick a better GPU such as GTS 450 or much better, the GTX 560. I'm afraid that there'll be a bottleneck issue when the GPU doesn't match the processor - i know it's not a big deal, but you'll feel the effects once you played a game, you'll get less FPS than how it's supposed to be.

The rest are good, 4GB of RAM is enough, except if you decided to be a modeler. About the HDD, i suggest you to split the HDD. I mean if you want a 1TB space for your PC, you'd better buy separated HDD. I mean like 500GB + 500GB, or 500GB + 250GB + 128GB SSD. And oh yeah, if you add a SSD, your PC would be much faster, especially when you install your OS to your SSD partition.

That's all i can suggest for you. Hope it helps :)

Okay, thanks for the help. But sadly, I can't buy another hard drive. Maybe I could use the hard drives on my current PC but they're not enough to make a 1TB space. The first one is only 97.7GB while the second one is 200GB.

Oh, if that so. It's okay for you to buy 1TB instead of split the sizes into separated HDDs. An btw, HDDs price nowadays are significantly increased up to 200% since the flood on Thailand last year. And yup, it sank the whole WD and Seagate factory. T_T

Oh and btw, good luck with your PC. :)
