Building my new Rig. I'm struck !!

Hello, I'm building a new PC. I cant decide whether my decesions will be right. I cant figure whether these will fit too.PLEASE ADVISE, these were the things im planning to buy ..

Processor: AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 Processor PC RAM (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9)
Mobo: MSI 990FX-GD65
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB)
SSD: WD Caviar Green 1 TB (WD10EZRX)
Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
GPU: Nvidia geforce gt 520(I have already purchaced this.)

I dont know for sure what PSU & cabinet to get .Will the mid towers do or do i have to go for full tower . Also i have got no idea about PSU. I have read a lot of reviews about HDD and other chipset failure due to PSU faults.
Please advice.

  1. Is this for gaming? If so, I would not go with the AMD 4100. Look at the Intel i3

    Yeah for gaming and also for multitasking too.
    I found i3 is little pricy than AMD 4100, also it has 4 cores and higher clock speed(3.6Ghz) when compared to i3 which has only 2 cores and clock speed of 3.3 Ghz max.
    But i dont know whether this is right way to decide...
    Please advice .
    Also does this rig requires a processor cooler ? I'm not sure of buying it .
  3. Budget pl.
    Fx4100 is bulldozer= bad

    Gt 520 very very weak, not for gaming

    Need dual memory kit
  4. Sorry about this silly question :i dont get it when you say its a buldozer is it really bad when compared to i3 ?

    my budget for processor is below Rs 10,000 .
    gt 520 is from my current pc. so also suggest me a good gpu around 5,000 to 7,000 .
  5. Hello kalai arasan
    Is this build for gaming or for any other use ? If yes, then which games do you intend to play?

    For the processor, i would recommend you a fx 6350 for around 7500-8500k Rs
    As for the GPU , go for a 7850 for 13k - You can play most of the old games maxed out and high end games at mid-high details.

    As for the CASE, any mid tower case will be fine.. NZXT Gamma for 2.2k RS would be a good choice if under budget.
    For the PSU i'd suggest a Seasonic s12II 520W.

    Please choose best answer if it helped.mes at mid-high details
  6. how about AMD 3.3 GHz AM3 FX6100 Processor .
  7. Fx 6100 is bulldozer= bad
    Fx 6300 is piledriver= better
  8. so what to do you think i should go for.. can i go with i3 or with 6100 . tell me which is great @ that price.. i cant afford that much.
  9. Phenom 965
    Fx 6300
  10. what about PSU. I dont know anything about it... what should i go for @ some low cost ? Does this rig Requires a dedicated cooler
