Here are the specifications of my computer, bought on Apr 17 2013. Prices are in Singapore Dollars. My computer is on the higher end.Setup

I went to to look for a good PC build and I just asked the computer guy at Best Bargain Computers (Sim Lim Square) to build it for me. Many of the parts I was looking for weren’t available so I randomly selected others.

CPU: Intel i5-3350P LGA1155 3.1GHz – $192
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-M MB – $189
RAM: Corsair 16 GB Kit DDR3 PC1600 (8GBX2) CL9 – $185
Solid-State Drive: Sandisk SSD Extreme 120GB – $149
Hard-disk Drive: Toshiba 3.5 2TB SATA3 32MN 7200RPM HDD – $118
Soundcard: ASUS Xonar DGX Soundcard – $79
GFX card: Sapphire HD7850 2G GDDR5 OC Version – $262
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Compact case – $75
Keyboard: Logitech MK120 Desltop – $17
Mouse: Armageddon Aquila X5 – $44
Monitor: Some Samsung TV

If you are a serious online grinder, a 120GB drive is probably not going to be sufficient for you. Almost half of my SSD is being used by my Holdem Manager 2 Database and it just keeps growing larger and larger. I had to install all my games on the HDD and I still face disk space problems. I guess you could use your normal HDD for Holdem Manager or Poker Tracker but I like my hands to load fast.

The keyboard isn’t too important and a normal one should suffice. However, for any serious gamer/poker player, the mouse is extremely important. Ergonomic mice suit me well as I tend to be pretty hardcore and my wrists tend to feel some level of discomfort after long hours of usage with regular mice.
