May 20, 2011 Leave a comment
Back to blogging again! I had moved in to a new apartment and my ISP turned out to be too inefficient with the shifting process, making me wait for more that 20 days to get the connection shifted to my new place. And on the professional side, I was pretty much occupied with the current feature productions happening in the studio.
But in the mean time, I got a chance to dig in to the latest computer hardware out there, to help out my friend with a new configuration for home. My search stumbled across a few components which I felt would do justice to the kind of work we deal with, on a day to day basis.
Hence thought of sharing the configuration with you in case some of you find it useful. So here it goes…
Intel Core i7 2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz approx 16500 INR
Asus P8P67 PRO approx 12600 INR
Gskill Sandy Bridge 16GB 1600 DDR3 approx 10000 INR
Corsair 1000HX approx 15000 INR
