Hi guys,

I am going to build a new gaming PC in Nov end-early Dec this year. I need your help in confirming if this spec will work well together and also suggest a new component in case you feel it needs to change. Also i wanted to know if 1x8gb is good or 2x4gb? And will it matter if I buy 2 individual 4BG rams instead of a 2x4gb pack that we get online?
I live in India and I generally refer to flipkart.com. Please refer to the link below for the site -

http://www.flipkart.com/seasonic-s12ii-620-watts-psu/p/...

You can copy paste the names below to search them in this website.

PSU - Seasonic S12II 620 Watts PSU /
Corsair CMPSU-GS600W 600 Watts PSU

Motherboard - ASRock 990FX Extreme4 Motherboard /
ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 Motherboard

CPU - AMD FX 8350

RAM - G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL)/
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R)/
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) PC RAM (CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10)

Case - Cooler Master HAF 912 Combat Transparent Side Panel Mid Tower Cabinet/
Cooler Master Elite 430 CPU Cabinet

Monitor - Dell S2240L 21.5 inch LED Backlit LCD Monitor/
AOC E2243FW2K 21.5 inch LED Backlit LCD Monitor/
AOC I2251FWE 21.5 inch LED Backlit LCD Monitor

Thanks! I'm on a budget too. This build is around 52,000rs which is about 700-750USD. But of course, considering the price on these items in US t would come to around 500USD I think - not so sure.

I would suggest an Asus Sabertooth 990FX REV 2.0 MoBo for the FX-8350....

Ram go with 2x4GB you won't get a performance boost by using 4 dimms (as for G.Skill VS Corsair, its kind of a toss up both make quality dimms). I don't think those motherboards have onboard graphics so you are likely going to need a graphics card (since this is a gaming rig to graphics card is kind of required).

AsRock VS Asus again a toss up, I think most will lean towards Asus but both make quality boards (a bit pricy for a $700 rig though)

You don't have a harddrive listed. I have the Samsung 840 and love it the Samsung Evo series just came out and are a good choice as well.

If you are trying to fit a full rig and a monitor you might be a bit tight on budget. I think you may have to step it down to a quad core

Most likely rig for $700

FX-4130
2x4 GB Ram
AMD 7790 or nVidia 650 TI
120 GB Samsung 840 Evo
Coolermaster Elite 500 watt PSU
Most likely a 880 Series micro ATX motherboard to fit your budget.
You should be able to get a 24" monitor in this budget. But it won't be an AOC or Dell it would be an Acer or something like that.

Thanks for all the replies! I'm sorry I forgot to mention about gfx and hdd, I have amd radeon hd 7750 gddr5 and 1tb hdd on my current setup along with DVD rom. And the reason for choosing 8350 is I don't want to upgrade my CPU-mobo for at least next 5 years. I wil just upgrade gpu on a later stage and thougt 8 core CPU should fit my bill. Will I be Able to do this with a 4 or 6 core processor?

Don't forge that the 7750 will play at low settings at most.

Yeah you're right. But I now game at 1366x786 on 19" monitor and this GPU is great for that.. so maybe I'll drop the monitor plan for now and a year down the line upgrade GPU and monitor for 1920x1080 gaming.. Besides that, do you think the rest will work as a combination and I don't want to upgrade these for at least 5 year like I said earlier. Thanks.

But I read somewhere that 1150 socket is the-end and CPU can't be upgraded beyond that? I'm not so sure on that. And more important is will that CPU last me for 4-5 years supporting all future games at minimum mid-high range? I'm not so sure hence going with 8-core CPU. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, it's good. Just swap the ram for Quad Channel or Dual Channel and get a GTX 760/770.

Yes I will have to upgrade GPU too but maybe at a later stage. But for now, I have 1360x768 res monitor; is the 7750 good enough for high gaming at this res? I'm not talking about bf3, crysis 3 and those 'high-end' types but for new RPG games like FC3, hitman, tomb raider, AC3-4, Batman Arkham and occasional FPS like MW3-2,etc.

Edit: 7750 can run Dead space 2, htiman absolution at high from what I have experienced in my current rig.

At that res this card can run practically anything you throw at it except of the higher end games.

FX-8350
m5a99fx PRO R2.0 [Make sure it's 2nd revision]

Is a sexy combo and i am going for the same specs too. I too live in india [mumbai to be exact] and also have plans to not upgrade for the next 3-4years! I'll be buying the Dell S2240L monitor too! When you upgrade your monitor be sure to go for atleast a gtx 760 or 7950 to make sure you can play the games for the next few years!
