Hey everyone - recently the wife poured a cup of sugery tea into my case.. poof dead
The hard drives are salvagable but from what I can tell the mobo gpu cpu have had it
We claimed on insurance but after the the excess fee only got £680 - not what I've spent on the PC but a fair bit to spend and I have some cash over
So I am looking to spend around £1000
Not needing a case, PSU or Hard drives I'm open to a bit of spending.
I usually get some good midrange AMD stuff - love my ATI cards, but I figured, why not get something quite special.
I'm tossing up between an AMD and INTEL rig, I really only need processor, ram, mobo, and CPU
I use my PC for Gaming, Audio Production, DJing, and I do a bit of Excel and SQL work - as well as the odd bit of web design though I dont need anything too powerful for that. I don't really overclock
These are the Rigs I am thinking of getting:
MOBO: SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0
CPU comparison: http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-4770-vs-AMD-FX-8350
It seems very tight between the two... I dont overclock, I want stuff to load quickly, although I often have many things open at once...
RAM: On both set ups I am looking at some various set of ram - I'm greedy thinking about 32gb but 16gb would suffice - I do frequently use 8gb
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600
Also I saw some 32gb Vengence Low profile Ram very cheap £108 but not sure how good the LP ram is
I have storage but figured might be worth getting an SSD to run windows and Core apps off of and a Cache drive to cache my WAV files when DJing off of my 2tb green drive. - might be overkill
I'm open to suggestions, and am most likely gong to stay away from the SSD and Cache drive if I go with the intel set up - mainly due to the cost
Thanks everyone in advance for your help and advice.
