  1. Help me building (pimp) PC

    Hey. PFRON is founding PC for me again, after 5 years. It's foundation for "disabled" persons, just like me, yay! :P Have a look here:
    http://www.pfron.org.pl/portal/en/1/1/State_Fund_for_Rehabilitation_of_Disabled_Persons.html

    I want to get a PC for 30,000 PLN (6,109 GBP (1 GBP = 4,90 PLN)).
    So yeah, anyone want's to help? I'm not good at hardware, i'm more like software king. :)

    Machine should contain:
    - CPU
    - RAM (DDR3)
    - Mobo
    - Graphics
    - Cooling
    - At least 2xHDD 1,5TB
    - Optical drive
    - Sexy chasis
    - Gaming keyboard & mouse
    - Speakers
    - Powerful ac
    - At least 27" LCD monitor
    - Vista Ultimate SP1 ENG DVD (BOX of course)
    - Microsoft XBox 360 Wireless Gamepad for Windows
    - And some nice headset :P

    That budget is.....big.

    I have a spec, i'll post it when i get home.

    You could get top notch hardware pretty much across the board with a budget like that.

    Maybe even a consumer grade supercomputer... :D

    I don't want to sound mean, but, in what way are you disabled? :)

    Also, I am sure us GM'ers can give you ideas for a nice PC in bits ;D

    I'd say an Intel i7/Q660 processor

    Buy like 10 SSDs and make a huge RAID 0 out of them. :D

    And an ordinary external disk to backup on to ofc :P
     
  7. Re: Help me building (pimp) PC

    Why would they want to pay so much for a PC to you.
     
  8. Re: Help me building (pimp) PC

    You'll probably have some spare money to put some diamonds on the case with that budget as well.

    then it would truly be a pimp PC :D

    I just asked myself the same thing. Would rather see 10 disabled kids go to a fun park for a day than to buy 1 super mega über pc for 1 person that will be outdated in 1 year. Not to be rude or anything but the budget is way off for a PC even for a professional workstation.

    End of moral ranting. :)

    We all know we wouldn't mind having that much cash to blow on a computer though.

    I wouldn't, I'd easily scrap my homemade £200 thing and go crazy online.

    Re: Help me building (pimp) PC

    Machine should contain:
    - CPU : Intel Core i7 920 (easy to OC, don't pay extra for just some 200/400 mhz and pay 200 eur/GBP more)
    - RAM (DDR3): "any" brand in DDR3 would be ok
    - Mobo: Asus P6T deluxe; MSI's Platinum is also very nice
    - Graphics: ATI 4890 / Crossfire perhaps. If you are nvidia fan boy: GTX275
    - Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper Z600 + additional fan of own choice
    - At least 2xHDD 1,5TB: Samsung 1,5 TB (spinpoint) for storage. for OS: Intel X25-M (more if you want RAID)
    - Optical drive: Any samsung
    - Sexy chasis: Big tower: Cooler Master ATCS 840; midi tower: Lian-LI PC7
    - Gaming keyboard & mouse: Logitech G15/19 + G5
    - Speakers: Not really my specialty.. but "any" logitech or creative set above 125 euro suits
    - Powerful ac: Cooler Master Real Power M850
    - At least 27" LCD monitor: Not really my specialty, but samsung or dell always seem ok
    - Vista Ultimate SP1 ENG DVD (BOX of course)
    - Microsoft XBox 360 Wireless

    Off topic but I agree if you pay yourself. If it gets funded because of some problems you have then I think something is wrong when you get 4x times as much as an average PC would cost to build. Especially if its taken from a countrys general tax fundings for people who need this kind of money.

    That's just my 2 cent about that.

    Xbox controller imo needs a wireless receiver for pc which is sold separately, although it's a real great config, wish I had at least the half of it's performance :sigh:
     
  20. Re: Help me building (pimp) PC

    Well, they're able to fund 50% of the price, i'm paying second part of the whole price.
    @Geitiegg: Wow, great PC. Now i need to check out prices in Poland ;p
