New PC

Published on 04 November 2012

IT industry is growing rapidly... software and hardware are continuously improved. The new software works slow on old hardware. We all have faced that problem before :P About two weeks ago I decided to buy a new "sandbox" too :D My first idea was to buy a good notebook, but after deeper research, calculation and thinking I decided to get desktop PC. This choice, as we all know, has pros and cons, but I think desktop PC is that what I need now.

I spent the weekend comparing and analyzing components. Below is the spec:

  • Motherboard: GA-Z77X-UD5H
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5 GHz BOX
  • RAM: 32 GB Corsair CL10 1600 MHz Non-ECC
  • PSU: Corsair AX750
  • GPU: Gigabyte GV-N640OC-2GI
  • Case: Fractal Design Define R4 Titanium Grey

I already have a spare disk, keyboard, mouse and monitor, so I skipped them ;). Don't need CD-ROM at all.

I hope this will be enough for a while...
