I will be going for the second option.

Any further suggestion is much appreciated. Are there any other thing(s) I should change/upgrade apart from what Coriiander already suggested?

Thank you.

I read your reply about you wanted to use it for 3D design. In reply to that I just wanted to stress out the importance of a decent PSU (Power Supply Unit). The thing which eats up most Watts in a computer is usually the video card. Some cards use up more power than my fridge lol. Now I’m not a 3D designer myself, but I can imagine you want a decent video card. Or maybe even two of them, perhaps linked with SLI/CrossFire. Please keep in mind that just somewhat-decent modern videocards consume 200+ Watss easily. For example, GeForce GTX 570: max. power consumption: 219 Watt. Recommended power supply: 550 Watt. There’s more things in your system that have to be powered, and you want some decent headroom as well. Assuming graphics-heavy purposes requires a decent video card, or maybe even 2 (or 3 hehe), 600 Watt will be too little. Up that to at least 800 Watt. You don’t want to worry about overloading things.

The CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold 1000W which I recommend is also certificated for use with both SLI and Crossfire. It may cost you a few more dollars, but it will save you money on electricity, it’s super quiet, and it takes away any worries and thus possible power-problems. See here for more information: http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/powersupply/silent-pro-gold/silent-pro-gold-1000w.html

Good luck on everything. I’m out :)

One last thing hehe. There are various online websites where you can calculate the required Wattage for your desires. For example this one: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

@Coriiander – Thanks for the intense review. It will be used for heavy duty works for many 3D projects and future web development. And I need something with optimum speed. Thank you once again. I will be attaching your recommendations.

+1 on the extended review. I used to build my own systems “back in the day”, but I’ve not kept up with the range of hardware choices. Although tech is getting better and less expensive all the time, you still can make some bad buys without doing your homework. :)

Option 2 is better, make sure you install 64 OS to make use of your RAM..

Change you HDD to SSD. You’ll feel the difference.
