Hello,

 

I'm looking to build a very powerful build for £1k. So to start off, I don't need OS, Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers and DVD Drive. What I'm looking for is a powerul PC with as many cpu cores and Ram as possible and 1TB SDD as I will be using it for a lot of multitasking (mainly a lot of virtualisation). So my requirements are:

 

Good Processor (As many cores as possible)

A lot of Ram (16/32 GB - DDR4 if possible ?)

Some medium graphic card, won't be using it that much tho.

Must be quiet as I have enough of noisy computers.

 

also what type of a build I could build if I extend my budget to £2k ? Can someone provide two builds for £1k and £2k ? How much difference it would make in aspects of a specs ?

I choose Haswell-E i7 - 5820k because it have 15MB cache, 6 cores, 12 threads,  3.3GHz base,and 3.6GHz boost, and it is overclocked CPU so you can tune this CPU with an adequate CPU cooler

 

I choose Corsair Hydro 105 watercooling for this CPU because it have 240mm radiator so that means you don't need high performance fans to keeps thing cool, with 240mm radiator it can provide double cooling compare to air plus quiter

 

I choose Gigabyte X99 motherboard because they are well known manufacturer and they been trusted by millions of people

 

I choose 16GB DDR4 RAM because it's plenty of RAM to runs any type of games and applications, but you can still add up to 64GB DDR4 

 

I choose ASUS STRIX DCU2 GTX 970 because its a non reference of GTX 970 which provide double cooling, and factory overclocking. However, you can overclocked this thing further more than what manufacturer set because it design for gamer overclocking in mind.

 

I choose 3TB HDD + 120GB SSD, so you can install OS onto your SSD and games on big momma 3TB HDD

 

EVGA G2 750W PSU should be plenty enough for your rig and maybe in the future as well. However, you can upgrade it anytime

 

Corsair Osibidian 750D full tower case can fit anything in the market throw at. This case can fit a 280mm radiator on the top, 240mm radiator in the front,and even 140mm radiator in the back.

Hey SmallB1,

 

For extensive virtualization, Xeon processors are in excellent choice due to their design and low use of wattage, which means a cooler processor.

 

I have made up 2 computer builds as per your request... one slightly less than 1,000 BP and one slightly less than 2,000 BP.

 

Don't get all wrapped on how many cores a processor has. There are other components that help the processor run fast as possible, such as the motherboard and the RAM modules.

 

The 1,000 BP computer build:

 

 
CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1241 V3 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor  (£215.78 @ More Computers) 
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard  (£109.00 @ Aria PC) 
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 1TB 2.5" Solid State Drive  (£265.00 @ Aria PC) 
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB WINDFORCE Video Card  (£97.99 @ Amazon UK) 
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case  (£71.29 @ Scan.co.uk) 
Total: £961.10
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

The 2,000 BP computer build:
 
 
Motherboard: MSI X99S SLI Plus ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard  (£158.39 @ Scan.co.uk) 
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory  (£195.96 @ More Computers)

Hey SmallB1,

 

In the 2,000 BP, there is already 32 GB of DDR4 RAM in that build.

 

You didn't specify which build you were referring to, though.

I assumed the 2nd build.

First: fully supoort Buzzsaw here.

 

Problem is...yes it can get 32GB of ram in there, but at the costs of a much lower RAM speed which greatly inpacts virtualisation performance. As the higher end mother board that supports that high RAM speed would have to be dropped for a much cheaper one to be able to fit 32GB into the price.

 

For the integrated thing, it would mean a more exspensive, non Xeon CPU, would have to be used. Meaning you loose out on all the effcieny from the Xeon, the special features only it can pull, and have higher temps and less profesional support form intel/other companies regaurding use of it.

 

The DDR4- only the 2011 V3 server socket with the X99 chipset can use it. Those boards cost a lot, and the minimium CPU for them costs a lot aswell. On top of it is that DDR4 is a ton more expensive then DDR3 and no 2011 CPUs have a integrated GPU. All that means is you can't get a DDR4 desktop (right now) for under a grand.

99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.

Seania,

 

At least you are someone who knows what they're talking about.

 

You are correct in terms of certain types of motherboards can accept the DDR4 RAM modules now and Yes, those are a bit pricey.

 

I am thinking in a few months of getting something similar to that $2,000 build that I had suggested in this thread.

 

Thanks for your support!
