  • Upcoming PC Upgrade - In Need Of Suggestions.

    [I hope this is the right place to post such a question]

    Hi all,

    My 4.5 years old PC kinda died on me,
    and it was a limiting DAW back when it worked perfectly so I decided to upgrade my system.

    I'm pretty low on funds, so I figured I can stick with my
    1. old case 
    2. PSU(520W)
    3. Graphics card(Nvidia 9500GT) [or use intel graphics that will come with the new CPU]

    4. Hard Drives

    5. Burner, Screens, Keyboard etc...



    and just buy a new MotherBoard, CPU, and RAM.
    What would you suggest to get for a budget of about 350$-400$ ?

    A real dilemma is whether to go amd or intel, most ppl suggested i5, but there's some suggesting amd.

    I think that's the no1 question for me to solve...

    I think a good L3 Cache is important for my kind of uses...

      Because the prices where I live are a lil' higher, I decided to go with i5 3470
      since I don't intend to overclock, and the 0.2GHz differnce doesn't worth the 65$[where i live] from 3470 to 3570k.

      So now I have a few more questions(Low noise is important):
      1) The motherboard. I looked at the differences and could see features differnces,
      non seemed crucial, but still I'm being told there will be a PERFORMENCE DIFFERENCE between different boards.
      is that right?
      2) Which PSU brands/models can I trust?
      3) Which CPU fan brands/models can I trust?
      4) Which RAM brands/models can I trust? (although if I go 2X4GB DDR 3 1600 and choose a good brand like kingston or crossair, it doesn't really matter that much exactly which I choose right? BTW - it doesn't matter if I get 1X8GB or 2X4GB right? almost no price differnce so I figure why not?)
