Hi, this is my current spec

Processor : AMD Phenom(tm) II X2 550 Processor
Motherboard : MSI board 760GM-E51
RAM : Corsair Vengeance 4 GB RAM (2 sticks so 8 GB)
PSU : Corsair GS600
HD :WD 2 TB green edition and WD 1 TB black edition

as you can see my other specs are too much for that old processor and mother board so,

I'm looking for decent Intel motherboard and processor for around 500$ or 30000 rupees

and for what specification do I need to look out for to by a compatible motherboard and processor for rest of build

and what would be the best cabinet for this build? temperature gets pretty hot around here and there is also dust issue

oh and I also need suggestions on CPU coolers for around 30$ or 2000 rupee

I'd look to a 3570K and and maybe like the Asus Z77-V

I agree a good choice is the 3570k or the 4670k on the Intel side. For AMD get a FX 8350, 8320 or 6300. Get a MOBO that has heatsinks on the mofsets, northbridge and southbridge. Try a Coolermaster Hyper 212 evo or TX3 Hyper heatsink to keep things cool. I use the Coolermaster 912 case with a 230mm fan on top to keep it cool, getting a case with good airflow is a must.

thanks rojodogg and Tradesman1 but, I'm looking for more of straight forward answer like which model of Processor and Motherboard goes well this build without any compatible issue or what points from the specification of products should I be aware of before buying one

so I think I'll go with i5-4670K Processor, now what Motherboard should I buy ?how to know that both motherboard and this processor is compatible with all the hardware I already have ? whether PSU power supply would be efficient? or my DDR3 ram works with it? how should I know that my Graphic card works on this mother board? how to make sure there won't be any compatible issue?

Best solution

Look at the Asus Hero, think it's going to be my favorite for Z87, have two build on it and picked one up for myself
