    A graphics-PC hardware configuration question
    « on: June 22, 2013, 03:59:13 AM »
    Hello,

    to the point, I'm no expert on these type of things and all the tech-data makes my head spin... I need a desctop PC for graphics and mobile app programming, OpenGL, OpenGL ES and Android...

    The hardware which I've picked based on my $ flow is this:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/90-MIBFV0-G0EAY00Z-Asus-M5A78L-LE-Motherboard-AM3-Socket-AM3-760G-780L-SB710-/321145430702

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/AMD-FX-Eight-Core-Processor-FX-8320-3-5GHz-AM3-Retail-Black-Edition-/190755482667

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/ctg/Gigabyte-AMD-Radeon-HD-7870-2048-MB-GV-R787OC-2GD-Graphics-Card-/115187304

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CoolerMaster-Power-Supply-RS600-PCARE3-US-eXtreme-600W-ATX12V-V2-3-with-Fan-/271075270478?pt=PCA_UPS&hash=item3f1d585f4e

    But with the different CPU sockets, overclocking, threading... that finds are just about as good as I'm able to ATM, can please someone suggest a better configuration or verify that this one works well?

    Oh, and sorry for not writing about RAM or HDD / SSD or DVD-ROM, as for they are secondary issues here.

    Anyway, thanks a lot for your input and suggestions! :D
    Let the force be with you all! :D

    P.S. got me an answer via IRC, thank you Tim and Guitar :D

    If you already have an answer from IRC I won't comment further as I don't know exactly what has been said.  All I will add is that I sincerely hope you didn't go with that power supply, it's not good at all.  Hopefully the advice in IRC included changing this to something of better quality.

    It would be good if you could post the specs that you have decided on before you buy them, There are many people here who also may be able to offer suggestions.

    You do realise by the way that some of those items are on US ebay and others UK. You will need to check the shipping & possibly make special requests to the sellers.
