    RAM

    GRAPHICS CARD
    Sapphire AMD/ATI HD 7850 HDMI OC Edition 2 GB

    So I also have a few questions

    Should I go with the GPU mentioned above or OC'ed 660 ?

    Also will the mobo be compatible with the GPU ?

    and last ...

    Will this build work ?

    Thnx :)



    What will you use the pc for
  2. Gaming and all the other things ... I know GPU is not that good but I currently cannot buy anything more Expensive :/

    Go with the AMD FX-6300 and a matching motherboard.
    Even though the i5 is more powerfull, In gaming the GPU is allways more impotant.

    Now you can upgrade to an 7950-70 and 8gb of ram
  4. But will it not bottleneck the GPU ? Also could you suggest me a matching mobo ? ( within the same price as the given one ?)

    How much will you spend on the motherbaord?

    Bottlenecking is a term you should use with caution, if know it your first time so i will try to explain it; Everything will bottleneck, it's just a matter of how much.
    The FX-build will be more powerful for gaming, since the gpu is so much more powerful, and the CPU is OK.

    Also, what games do you want to play

    A more powerful GPU is almost always better
  7. k ... but don't you think that an 13 3220 will be better if ur getting at same or cheaper price ?

    If you asked me a year ago, sure. But now next gen games will star using six-core tech. And the six-core will also be better for non gaming stuff.

    How much for the Motherboard
  9. umm ... the mobos I chose --> for i3 - Intel DH61HO Motherboard
    fx6300- Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Motherboard

    The Gigabyte motherboard only supports up to 1333 ram. Maybe this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-970ag46

    With this motherboard you can also upgrade to crosfire or SLI, meaning you can use two GPUs.

    By the way, do you only use flipkart or other sites too? I saw you changed to a 760, the new R9 280X can almost compare to the 770. Especially the gigabyte edition.
  11. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1843026/build-time.html?xtor=RSS-9990 :) new specs and the reason why I dint take r9 280x ( although I was dying to buy it ) is cause it costs almost 100 $ more where I live :/

    Ok, that's a good system. Hope your future pc-endeavour goes well.
