Hello community, I am back here after 2 days.
I want to build a High Performance PC other than Gaming needs.
I have selected some parts: :(  Well I am having some problem choosing the right processor for me. I have 4 options in mind for the processor:
1.Intel Core I7 2600
2.Intel Core I5 3570
3.Intel Core I7 3770
4.AMD FX-8350 Processor.

So, Please tell me which processor to choose.
Other specs:
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM @1600Mhz
Asus NVIDIA Geforce GTX 650 Ti 1GB GDDR5
ASROCK H77 Pro4/MVP Motherboard
Seagate Baracudda 1TB HDD @ 7200RPM
HP DVD Burner @24x
OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD SATA III Interface
Cooler Master Elite 310 Computer Cabinet
Corsair VS 450 450Watt PSU
Acer 15.6 Inch Widescreen Monitor (1366 x 768 -- My common Resolution)

My Gaming demands are very less compared to CPU Intensive Tasks.

So, How's this Desktop PC. Please tell me the right processor to go.
Well, I want great marks in 3d mark vantage pcmark 7 and other benchmarks.
My budget is Rs.55,000

I am thinking to make this computer an HTPC by connecting my CRT TV.
Can I connect my PC with the CRT TV through this cable ? :

- Choose the Intel Core I7 3770
A K series like 3770k will let you overclock for even grater performance, you will need a better cooler corsair make good water cooler like h80 h100i etc

- Get higher speed memory like 1866MHz or 2133MHz that is compatible with you motherboard, the manufacturer has a compatibility list.

Looks good. :)

Depending on your application and budget you probably want the i7-2600k, i7-3770k, or FX-8350. If gaming isn't a concern at all then the 8350 is probably the best budget friendly choice (you'd have to change the motherboard). If you take a look at http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/697?vs=551 . . . you will notice that the 3770 and 8350 are close in many benchmarks, but the 8350 falls pretty far behind in gaming. If you drop the Z77 board though you will lose the ability to use that 60GB SSD as a cache drive with SRT, so that may influence your decision.

You theoretically can use that cable to display on the TV, but most TV's are either 576i (PAL) or 480i (NTSC). Text will be incredibly hard to read, and usability will be a huge problem. It will be fine for watching movies on and things, but you will want to use the monitor or a higher res TV if you actually want to use that screen for anything productive.

So, should I drop the SSD, go with Intel I7 3770, an remain with GTX 650 ti until any other future upgrades ?
I am thinking to use this PC for at least 4 years.
Then I will buy the monitor also if I drop the SSD.

NO SSD GIVES BETTER PERFORMANCE DONT DROP IT USE IT AS CACHE DRIVE INTEL Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) YOU CAN CUT DOWN THE GFX TO 7750 OR EVEN GT640 IF YOU DONT GAME OFTEN.

MY SUGGESTION USE THE INBUILT IGP OF THE CPU FOR NOW AND LATER GET A GFX CARD WHEN YOU CAN/NEED FOR GAMING. BUT NO DONT CUT SSD

OK I will not cut down the ssd and remain with the same configuration as below:
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM @1600Mhz
Asus NVIDIA Geforce GTX 650 Ti 1GB GDDR5
ASROCK H77 Pro4/MVP Motherboard
Seagate Baracudda 1TB HDD @ 7200RPM
HP DVD Burner @24x
OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD SATA III Interface
Cooler Master Elite 310 Computer Cabinet
Corsair VS 450 450Watt PSU
Acer 15.6 Inch Widescreen Monitor (1366 x 768 -- My common Resolution)

Mu budget was Rs.55,000 and now it the total cost is :
Rs.54,733. This only does not include Keyboard and Mouse and else everything stated above.

you say this is not a gaming machine, but you want great 3dmarks? the 650ti requires a 500w psu....you can run it, yes, but i like more headroom for future upgrades. what id do is keep your psu and downgrade to a 7770/650

If you're not gaming or more importantly, video editing, you should get the i7 instead of the i7. You don't need the hyperthreading, you need MHZ. Save the money from the i7, get a i5 and a 120 or 128G SSD. You're going to want to put more programs on it once you see how great it is.

If he is not gaming and doing video editing your suggestion is completely the opposite of what he should be doing. Take a look at http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/551?vs=701 and notice that things like video editing, 3D Rednering, flash video, and file compression the i7 is by far faster than the i5, but in most of the games listed the FPS difference is almost nothing.

Gaming: i5
Data Crunching: i7

It is not that I will not be gaming. I will be gaming for some extent but at Low to Medium Settings.
I want that all the current games run on my PC without any lags even if it is Low or Medium Settings.

Any one of those processors will be able to handle that just fine, and the 650 ti is a great mid range card for some casual gaming. Then the question comes down to the other uses for the PC. If the data you are going to be working on threads well then you will want a 3770k or a 8350, if it is mostly single threaded stuff then the 3570k will do just fine.

You may want to try and find some benchmarks of the actual applications you are going to be using and see how well each processor does for your specific uses. Any one of them will be able to pump games out fast enough that the 650 ti is probably going to be the thing to slow things down anyway, so it's really not a concern.
