PC configuration accessible, gaming and general use

When it comes to PC gaming ones are not much different from those used for editing or office; only differ dedicated graphics card, which is not necessarily the office; that is why we set up an elastic system that can be tailored to individual needs.

PC configuration accessible, gaming and general use

The processor I chose to be good, because whatever the task, the processor matters most.
Intel Skylake Series are the most advanced at the moment and therefore the chosen i5 6400. Processor can not compromise; if you go to zgîrceşti memory, processor feels immediately.
The motherboard is strictly necessary, without extras, which would raise its price very much. Even if available, Asus motherboard has all the necessary facilities. Buying a more expensive motherboards with more amenities, it brings extra performance are only some comfort features.
Storage is made up of a SSD from Toshiba that is affordable and efficient. I did not choose a PCIe SSD, because it was more expensive and additionally require us to buy another motherboard and more expensive. Optionally, besides this SSD, you can purchase a hard drive or an external hard drive so you can store more data. SSD and storage system is only limited. Tip External Hard Disk Seagate Expansion Portable 2TB, 2.5 ″, USB 3.0. (accessible)
The video card from Gainward and is a GTX960; a motherboard that can run almost all games on the market. This board is not required for those who want gaming. Intel graphic chip integrated into the processor, can pay off many graphics tasks with ease, and even gaming easy.

  1. nice tutorial, congratulations. I'm really waiting for one like this because lately I've also invested in a PC and I'm very satisfied with it, especially with the video card that you recommended me to take from the 960 series, very good and very quiet. Now follows the last "song", the ssd. and the one presented by you here seems interesting and accessible. good luck further

  2. Cristi Hello! The video card also helps in editing video rendering speed?

    • Only in some cases rendering speeds, which are used Cuda cores.
      However, video card help enormously in editing programs on live view, where we can make editing much faster.
      Video card and graphics programs help 3D and even Photoshop.

      • Thanks for the reply. You could ask me a link to a video card compatible with Adobe Premiere with a quality / price good?

        • The tutorial is balanced.

          • Cristi Hello! I bought some components above where you left link (motherboard, processor, SSD) X 2 8GB RAM, other than what you put above. I installed patiently components. I tried to install Windows 7 the stick but we did, we got up phase Install where I said that does not find certain devices pieces to continue. I opted to install DVD that I succeeded and that the trouble (I stuck to 0% Expanding Windows Files). He attended chipset installation sites on CD from the motherboard, video card then. The major problem is as follows: I sound and the Audio driver from Windows Update 7 error that appears in the picture I left the link here: https://goo.gl/EIQU9C . Besides you have to start it without a mouse inserted into the USB to boot the Windows.
            Do you think it's a problem with the motherboard? EMag be returned to, or What should I do in this situation?
            Thank you !

  3. you put the video card and put another 200 lei at the source, so…!

  4. Cristi, I congratulate you !!
    Given that you left only to post tutorials on videotutorial.ro, do an amazing job.
    About a week tutorial is excellent.
    Bravo and keep up the good work !!!

    Hello Cristi,
    I have a question: What is the difference between SATA ports and M.2 ???
    Now I want to make my PC as in the tutorial, although I have a PC quite pretty good one i7 but has already 5 years 4GB Ram, ssd samsung 840 evo 256 GB + 2 HDDs 1 TB (internal and one external), but I 3.0 USB.
    Nush what else I could ask him, and I want to make my PC for now and for the future, that you can upgrade it and over 3-4 years.
    What do you think about this motherboard:
    Bravo for tutorials, you can donate to this site?
    Alin Lucian Sincerely,

  6. Cristiiii, Cristii grudgingly for those who want a gaming system, and must gaming motherboard ASUS namely Z170 pro gamer or B150 PRO GAMER. Not that board which has the weakest component (I'm not saying it's not good for general use, but I find it weird, you 1000 lei and you think how many CPU to the motherboard). SSD is that let's say somewhat, not very bright. Seasonic sources have problems after a long coil very disturbing noise (avoid Seasonic period). SF cam video card is not too compares with an MSI or ASUS Strix technologies that have something on board. Otherwise the system is ok, making exception for gamers.

  7. and what we teach in this tutorial? items in cart bag so to know. I was expecting some explanation.
    for example: video card why 128 bits and not 256 even if we change the manufacturer. I don't care that they have some drivers so your head hurts…. but 128 doesn't play the hull hd world either.
    that ssd…. toshiba has so much confidence in its own ssds that it has only a 2 year warranty.
    the gaming motherboards are atx or larger and have 8 pins on the processor power supply for extra power. that it is used only in case of overclock is not valid. especially since the cpu power supply has returned to the motherboard and is no longer in the processor (which made them almost without "slack")

    • You have opinions, but about preconceptions, just as I do about tap water. If ESRI indoctrinated not see beyond the numbers, keep head cook for yourself and not others.

      • eee… :))) it's not that hard to realize that one is to transfer 128 bits between gddr and gpu and another is 256 bits. and these how cunning they are I think it's actually 64 forward and 64 backward. as na… ddr… .this so binary 0 and 1. I don't know where I heard it would be in tests and 2. would be 0,1,2 as combinations. I'm not sure about the information. if so you will then see advanced technology.
        I have no preconceived notions at all but when it comes to making money to buy something if I don't think 20 times 🙂: should I take a toshiba with a 2-year warranty and a dubious past on hard drives (now I have these weren't a trick either), or to take my samsung or intel with a 4, 5 year warranty…

  8. Cristi,
    If possible, a tutorial for purchasing a home & game laptop and one with a laptop purchase for linux!
    Thank you.

  9. Hello!
    Why only you post?
    Or just you still have the site ??
    Thank you!

  10. ASUS motherboard H110M-A D3 recommended you here has a weak Chipset Intel® H110 ,, ,, which does not fit well with the 6-generation processors from Intel.
    To have maximum CPU performance ,, ,, Skylake recommended to use Intel motherboards equipped with the new chipset generation ,, ,, Express chipset and memory Z170 DDR4.
    In conclusion, there is no point in buying a high-performance processor, if the other components-hardware system are weaker and maximum CPU performance slows again. New ,, ,, ,, old ,, with mixed, not happy or limited work.
    So, either we buy all the new generation parts, or we don't buy at all! … Or we buy all the components from the previous generation (cheaper) and which are very close to the performance of the new ones. Who has money to throw on the window, any combination works!

  11. Firstly Thanks for the tutorial! Not convince me at all motherboard that is too weak compared to the processor and the practical limit him. Again I do not think it is ok choice for video card, call of duty bo3 uses almost all memory of my board video (msi gtx 970 4go) and if they had where they consume and more and about 12 Go ram. If someone wants a video card somewhat ok for the years then to take minimum 970. Gtx 960 will lag behind and be quick from the start rather limited.

  12. Hi, I see you do not have the source said, the configurations you make, whether it makes sense to take with 2 rail links? and minimum apmeri, I guess 18 minimum each.

  13. I welcome an old PC:
    Intel Pentium E5400 @ 2.70GHz
    Single-Channel 2,00GO DDR2 400MHz {@} I have a free slot
    Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. P31-ES3G (Socket 775)
    ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series (ATI AIB)
    Western Digital WDC 466GB WD5000AAKS-00A7B2 ATA Device (SATA)
    1000 lei worth investing in it or take a new one 1500lei thanks.

    • NOT ! You can put wheels and engine, it doesn't work… At a unit of about 1500RON it's the limit, I checked for myself, I don't know about AMD, Pentium Dual-Core G4400 3.30GHz box, asus motherboard with ram DDR4 .... depending on your preference and price, if you get another monitor it will cost you 5-600 RON, keyboard, mouse… in the end you will reach 2000 RON or over, I also put assembly from the store, I think you don't want to risk to lose the warranty or to receive a defective component from the factory to wait another 2 weeks until you receive it. I understand that bathrooms are a problem but that's the price

  14. Thank you for advice rares, I have full HD monitor 19 Inc.

    • On the next try a monitor VA 21,5 inch or more, FHD or IPS if you can afford if you're not playing games, I'm not playing games but I noticed that they prefer monitors TN top versions, preferably a monitor VA or IPS with an anti-reflection coating. It's good to read something about monitors / screens because it helps much, you drive good for nothing if you do not choose a monitor for your eyes and your needs

  15. I 7 years it certainly will change when will I get a desktop monitor

  16. Message: Good evening, what do you think about this configuration is compatible songs:
    Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3 R4 V1.0A, Socket 1150
    Kingston 4 × 2 GB DIMM, DDR3, 1600MHz, CL11, 1.35V memory
    Intel® Pentium® G3460, 3.5GHz, Haswell, 3MB, Socket 1150, Box
    Gigabyte AMD Radeon video card R7 240, 2048MB, DDR3, 128 bit, DVI, HDMI, VGA
    Corsair Builder Series Modular Source CP-9020058, 80 PLUS® Bronze, 430 W, Active PFC, ATX 2.3, 12 cm ,, fan casing; HDD; Keep an optical drive from your old PC, PC to mention use it for movies, music, thank you rarely jocuri.va

    • Why do not the intel skylake 1151? Choose a motherboard compatible with DDR4. From what I know, if someone is so correct me, if you put your video card and dedicated source is good to be with railuri 2, 2 12V line.
      ASUS motherboard B150M-PLUS

  17. Good evening, which of the following tv million recommended: use it only as a TV mention, I thank UPC cable television.

  18. Hello I want to buy a laptop and it's very hard choice on which model to go: CPU i5 6200,8gb RAM or processor i5 5200, 4gb ram + video card 920-940m, FHD or HD, I mention that I am not a gamer, not I buy it for video editing, music, movies, net

    • Adrian Gudus said

      In this case, go quietly on i5 5200

      • You think that with dedicated video card is better even if the other has the better processor and more RAM will wonder why someone told me that in i5 6200 integrated video card (hd520) is more efficient than 920m

  19. Hello, I have a question. I have the following configuration:
    Intel i5 4690 3.5GHz;
    AMD RADEON video card RX 480 8GB GDDR5;
    120 GB SSD, 2HDD 2TB, 1HDD 500GB, 1HDD 320GB;
    32 DDR3 GB RAM;
    The problem is: while playing GTA 5 computer restarts without causing blue screen. It could be the source? And if you need to exchange source, a source Seasonic is sufficient 620W?
