    Budget 21-30k Desktop Upgrade - Core Components

    If someone is following this build, I qould suggest to go with the suggestions of SSD or WD Black hard disks. This is the only thing that is dragging the whole machine's Experience Index down. How ever no problem while working.

    Budget 21-30k Desktop Upgrade - Core Components

    ALPHA17 - I went through the BIT Tech site and I have what they call as Braided cables. All the cables in a black net kind of thing. So I need to actually look at hiding them more than anything else now. RageZone - These people say that for effective Cable management, a modular PSU is the most...

    Budget 21-30k Desktop Upgrade - Core Components

    Thanks! Sorry. New to this lingo. I don't like it either. Its the guy in the shop who bundled everything together and put a tie around it. IS there a way to do it ? Or should I just move everything to the front of the case so that it just gets hidden? ---------- Post added at 02:48 PM...

    Budget 21-30k Desktop Upgrade - Core Components

    Do you mean that I need to get a better Cooler Master case? I do not think I will bother about an upgrade to the case for the time being. Wallet's light.

    3 questions about 2TB Hard DIsk and Windows 7 Home Premium?

    Ok. Done! What the configuration is: ~250GB partition running Windows ~ 500 GB partition ~ 1TB Partition All of them are NTFS. A 2TB hard disk is never 2TB so the mismatch.

    3 questions about 2TB Hard DIsk and Windows 7 Home Premium?

    I think I will do this then: Format the Green drive to NTFS like GunsNRoses said. Install Windows and partition like what Palpy said. Get a SSD once the price drops and then move the windows and programs installation onto that. Sounds ok for now? If yes, then I can start the...

    Oh shucks. Does that mean that if I want to leave it running over night downloading stuff, its going to be a problem? With this head-parking and all jazz?

    3 questions about 2TB Hard DIsk and Windows 7 Home Premium?

    Palpy - this is to be done AFTER installing windows right? GunsNRoses - The drive has WD20EARX. A quick google search tells me that its a Green drive. Rajendra at Golcha told me that its a 7200rpm drive. I paid 7000/- for it a few days ago. Is this correct?

    Budget 21-30k Desktop Upgrade - Core Components

    Ah. Why I should not shop from memory. I did not even ask about the NZXT. The cooler master name was in my head and I just went with that. Would it have made it much better? I just installed the hard disk at home. Is it ok to install windows 7 home premium 64bit onto the 2TB hard disk, or...

    Budget 21-30k Desktop Upgrade - Core Components

    Thanks again guys. I do not think I will move to an SSD until I get a 500GB under 10k price. I will live with SATA till then. Here's what I got from Golcha today. Intel Core i5 3450 - 11500/- Intel DH75-BN 6000/- Corsair Vengeance DDR 3 1600mhz - 3400/- AMD HD 7770 GHz edition - 9000/-...
