  1. new pc

    i have thought about a new pc

    CPU: Intel® Core™2 Quad Prozessor Q9550
    Grafik: Nvidia Zotac GTX285
    MB: MSI P45D3 Platinum
    Power Supply: Corsair CMPSU-550VX
    RAM: Corsair DIMM 4 GB DDR3-1333 Kit

    is this ok? price is 800€
    what would you edit?

    - I don't trust MSI
    - Wtf is a Zotac?
    - Why not i7 if you're getting ddr3-1333? :P

    From what I've seen on some swedish forums is if you got that budget you should go for a AMD 920 or 940 X4 instead of the quad one (they should peform somewhat the same but the AMD is better and the new tech kind of.. ) :) If you could buy an i7 that would be even better but that will add up lots on the price unfortunately.

    the q9550 has the same performance like the i7 940
    i7 940=550€

    zotac has become popular since nvidia 200 series
    seems to be very good

    i only want to have the ddr3 ram because i can upgrade my pc easier than with ddr2

    MSI --> source? They are fine. They are top 3 MB company.
    Zotac is ex-sapphire workers, and started NVidia brand GFX company. Its a good company and decent.

    Agree on the i7.

    And Q9550 is not faster than i7 940... Maybe 920.
    Anyways, for that budget, consider the AMD platform. Its cheaper, but gives similar performance to the Core2Quad series.
    Get a AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black edition :D

    Where you want to buy it from in germany anways?
    And consider a 650w with that GFX card, just to be sure :)

    some benchmarks,2146-8.html,657797/Intel-Core-2-Quad-Q9550-im-PCGH-Test/CPU/Test/

    You only need those components?
    I think you can get a nice i7 system for that too :)

    The Q9550 doesn't even come close to any i7 inc 920.
