Hi guys,

I started this thread to help everyone wanting a new computer. All you need to do is post the following:
Code:
budget:
usage:

other miscellaneous requirements:

*If to be used for gaming,. please indicate the games you wish to play.


The prices i will be using are those that come from major shops in gilmore and also PCexpress and others... The prices will only reflect that of which on the date of my post.


also please put your requests in this format:

Processor:
Motherboard:
RAM:

Video Card:

Hard Drive:
Optical Drive:

Power Supply:
Casing:

monitor:

Accessories:

please indicate (at least)the size of the hard disk desired, and also what you need/have/prefer.

Thanks.


How to get to Gilmore:
commuting... From EDSA get on the MRT to Cubao and take the other train and get off at Gilmore station. so easy.
driving... Via aurora is the easiest way from EDSA. anyway, just ask na lang cos i dunno where you'll be coming from.


An example post would be as follows:
Hi. Please help me buy a computer for my son. He will be using it mainly for school and some games. He likes to play Dota and L4D. Our budget for the PC would be 20K. We already have a printer, monitor and speakers. Our monitor is a 17" CRT monitor. My son said he prefers 1gb video card.

Thank you.

Re: [ADVISE]Help you build/choose a Computer

pinakamura? hmm... :D


papalitan lahat :D

Processor: Pentium E2160 ~ 3K
Motherboard: GF7 nforce 610i ~ 2K
RAM: 2gb RAM ~ 2K

next step:
add for a power supply(HEC Raptor 450W/500W) ~ 2K

next step:
add for a video card (GF 9500GT, 256MB DDR3 ONLY, don't get anything you think may be better, believe me its a waste of money) ~ 3K

sell your old PC on tipidpc and get a new casing. ~ 1K

13K. i suggest holding off first on the video card and see if your satisfied gaming on the Integrated graphics processor.

Re: [ADVISE]Help you build/choose a Computer

@nybee
6K ~ 9800GT. be sure to get 55nm(Galaxy brand available, not palit)
5K ~ Radeon HD 3870 DDR3
5K ~ GF9600GT.

i don't understand what you mean by futureproof... kasi para sa akin, wala nun, pero if you mean you can still play on oin 3-4 years time, prolly get the 9800GT.

IMHO, mainstream parts, lowend/mid level/highend is where its the cheapest buys. go further, advanced tech...(skull trail, DDR3, SSD HDDs etc.. you pay the premium for exclusivity) and phased out(SDRAM or DDR, and you pay more due to scarcity of supplies)

@redwing
no sorry, most new games require a video card with shader model 2.0, i believe the MX400 only has SM1.1. you can still sell that. sell it per piece or by the lot if you want, you'll probably get around 2000~3000 for everything.
