Being a geek one has to assemble his own machine and not just that it is a lot cheaper than buying one from HP or Dell. I will go into the hardware and then the software I use on this PC. This is my main computer and I use it much more than my MacBook Pro, more about which in a different post sometime. For the time being, you get to know my Windows PC.


Rule no. 1 for DIY jobs is to somehow get the most bang for every dollar spent and that’s exactly what I wanted to do. I went with AMD processor to save some cost and I have a previous AMD HTPC that has worked for 2 years without any trouble and it remains virtually ON 24×7! Here is the list of components:

    • Motherboard: I went with MSI 870A-G54 AM3 AMD chipset, ATX form factor with USB 3.0 ports and lossless 7.1 surround sound HD audio.
    • Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 925 AM3 2800 MHz quad core with 8 MB cache is the workhorse in the machine.
    • RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 6GB (3 x 2GB) SDRAM DDR3 1333.
    • Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTS 250 1GB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card.
    • Power Supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Supply
    • Tower Case: Cooler Master Elite 310 ATX Mid Tower Case (Black/Orange)
    • Hard Drive: SAMSUNG EcoGreen 2TB SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
    • Monitor: Dell PSeries P2411H LED Widescreen 24in.
    • Keyboard-Mouse:Logitech MK320 wireless keyboard and mouse.
    • Wi-Fi adapter: TP-LINK TL-WN722N USB 2.0 High Gain Wireless Adapter.
    • Printer: Brother Printer HL2270DW Wireless Monochrome Printer.
    • Desk Speakers: Cyber Acoustics Subwoofer Satellite System.

Stay tuned! Developing…..
