Looks like a very nice build. A few things I would change. First off, unless you plan on doing a triple crossfire setup any time in the near future, the 1200 Watt PSU is a bit overkill for a single or even crossfire 7970 setup. Also, a larger HDD will be useful, at least 1 TB, it is amazing how fast storage fills up when you find a good Steam sale.

A larger SSD could also be useful for the long term. I think a 120+ SSD should be the minimum size for a new build SSD, it allows plenty of room for future applications, while 64GB leaves very little room to expand.

I might add another graphic card in a year, so I'll keep the PSU. This build is coming out for rs. 99,500($1,840) so I cant upgrade either HDD or SSD as this build is hitting the budget roof

Like I said, downgrade the PSU, it is OVERKILL for even a 7970 crossfire setup, are you planning on getting 3 7970's eventually? A 850W PSU will be more than enough to run the 7970 in crossfire. Use the savings to upgrade the other components.

The funny thing is, I was looking for 700-800W PSU but I found the mentioned PSU for rs 2,700, $50(very very cheap). Here's the link : http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-cmpsu-1200-axuk-1200-wa...
Although its now maybe permanently out of stock.

You know what they say about a deal that is too good to be true. It probably is. That PSU is usually $250+ anywhere in the US, while the AX850 you can get for under $120 some places online.

Was going to make you a build with a titan, but i guess the benches dont back that up.

This SSD is the best value right now, less then 70 cents a GB is a freekin steal, man. You might also want a 1tb hdd later, but 250 BG will last you a few months.

The i7 is not needed in gaming. 5 fps more for 100 bucks more? the i5 will be enough.

8gb of ram is plenty.

These GPU's are 4gb each. 8gb combined. If your runing at really high res, it will come in handy. If not, get the 2gb version. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The HX series has lower ripple and better voltage stability. I'd use the HX850

At $1850, I'd use an Asus, Gigabyte, MSI MoBo

I'd use Win7

I'd use a WD Black

I'd use a 120Hz monitor

Ya didn't say what Vengeance ... suggest 1.35 low profile

This is a really nice config and I appreciate your suggestions, BUT these are all prices in US, the hardware here in India is awfully overpriced and multi GPU and 256GB SSD is out of my reach. The build you suggested would cost like rs. 150,000($2,770) here.

I am satisfied with the current PSU.
I would really like to try out the Windows 8, if I dont like it I would switch back to Windows 7.
I would really try to sqeeze in WD Black 1 TB if my budget allows it.
120 Hz monitor is far out of my budget, I cant afford it.
This is the exact RAM - Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R)

All in all, your build will play any game on the market max settings @ 1080P. All of the components are compatable. Definitely go for the 1TB caviar black, otherwise, you should be all set.

Thanks a lot man, you have been great help. Hope to encounter you sometimes again in these forums !!

One more question please : Should I stick with the mentioned Graphic Card or go with 2 X Sapphire AMD/ATI HD 7850 HDMI OC Edition 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card (In Dual CrossFire X) ?? Here's the link : http://www.flipkart.com/sapphire-amd-ati-hd-7850-hdmi-o...

Benchmarks show 7850 Cfx is much faster than single 7970 GHz, and the 7850 cfx is actually cheaper. But I am concerned about Multi GPu issues like Micro-stuttering, Overheating, Noise, Incompatibility with games, etc ??

I came across that same question when I upgraded to my 7970. I think my reasoning was this. The 7850 CF had amazing graphics performance for the price, and together they were a bit cheaper than the 7970 at the time. But I was able to get my 7970 for a really great price (actually came out to be less than 2 7850's) and I figured that the one 7970 would do well to suit my needs for the time being, especially on a single 1080P monitor. So when the time comes and I feel the need to do a 7970 CF, the price will have come down a bit and I will obviously get better perforce with dual 7970's than dual 7850's. Plus I figure 7970 CF will last longer than 7850 CF, I will not have to upgrade for several years after I CF the 7970.

OP is in India so links to Newegg and Microcenter will not work. And the Titan isn't available in India and if it were it'd be ₹ 54000, or more than 1/2 of the OP's budget.

Here is what I would suggest on that budget:

Case:
Corsair Carbide 500R - ₹ 6965
PSU: Seasonic X750W - ₹ 9700
Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 6 - ₹ 12920
CPU: 3.4GHz Intel Cor i5-3570K - ₹ 14700
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - ₹ 2580
RAM: 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz 1.5V G.Skill Ripjaw X - ₹ 5735
SSD: Samsung 840 120GB - ₹ 6530
HD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black - ₹ 6585
Optical: Lite On DVD Burner - ₹ 995
Video Card: Asus Geforce GTX 670 - ₹ 26965

Total: ₹ 96225 (USD $1,775.86)

Okay thanks man, I would stick to sapphire 7970 Vapor X 3 GB and maybe add another down the road. Again, thanks a lot for solving my dilemma !!
