Hello, I'm new to building/assembling new PCs etc. I might soon build a new PC and my budget is around 50k-55k INR or 850-900 US Dollars. I saw many threads that had links which included only the parts(Processor, RAM, Graphics etc.)! Since, this will be a new PC so, I want a complete list including Mouse, Monitor, Keyboard.
Here are some pre requisites -
I don't prefer AMD Processors, so I'd like an i5, RAM must be 8 GB, monitor should be Full HD. I can compromise on Graphics Card since I won't be playing much games but it should play games at AT LEAST mid-high! :)

If you're looking to play games on mid/ high do not compromise in the graphics card.

Gaming is not the main issue, so someone suggested me that SAPPHIRE HD 6670 1GB GDDR5 is pretty decent. :)

Xeon is not recommended for his needs, and it's not compatible by the Asus motherboard.

Well he said AMD not welcome and I5 is in price of that Xeon.. obviously I didn't suggest to put that Xeon on AM3 slot... the mobo will be cheap for that Xeon as well since its 1 generation old... btw how do you know what needs it has? He said games is not an issue but if you can afford better CPU why would i want that FX, Xeon will be beating that FX to its knees in every day usage... cooler, more efficient and more powerful... but indeed cost more.

This is great, minus the processor(I'll add i5 and change motherboard) and I already have Windows 8.1 License.
Thank You and everyone else! :D

How about that... Xeon eats both FX and i5 on a breakfast.. its generally CoolNQuite solution. Xeon & GTX750 are known for excellent power efficiency.
