I already have Kingston ValueRam 8gb ddr3 1333mhz,WD Caviar Blue 1TB HDD,LG dvd writer,Windows 7 64 bit OS,k/m and speakers.
So is this a good build for gaming at 1080p high-ultra settings?

More about 900 gaming build good
  1. For gaming solely, and at this price point, i would suggest dropping the ssd and getting a stronger gpu (gtx 760 or maybe even 770) and maybe a cheaper case if possible. The power supply is excellent. Either way, you have a solid build there.

    EDIT:

    If you can extend your budget this gpu will play pretty much evey game at ultra settings @ 1080p - http://www.flipkart.com/sapphire-amd-ati-radeon-r9-280x-3-gb-ddr5-graphics-card/p/itmdrubpf9bchtfz?q=Sapphire+AMD%2FATI+Radeon+R9+280X+3+GB+DDR5+Graphics+Card&as=on&as-show=on&otracker=start&as-pos=p_1&pid=GRCDRUBPF9BCHTFZ - Rs.23956
  2. imo R9 270 and 270X offer the best price-to-performance as long as they prices aren't elevated where you are due to bit coin douch-bagging.
    These two cards will be much faster than a GTX 660 and cheaper than a GTX 760 (depending on country).

    Rest of the build looks good except at that price point I really like the ASUS VE228HR 21.5" monitor over the LG one you picked but that is my preference.

    Who much money( in Rupees) are you going to spend in New Build ?

    @mohit9206
    As your going to buy "NZXT Phantom 410 Mid Tower USB 3.0 Gaming Case - White" from Amazon.com through junglee.com.

    what will be the final price? Will there will be customs duty charges for importing to India?
    Can you please say how does buying product from Amazon.com through junglee.com works.

    Thanks

    I think i will keep the SSD as i am tired of my PC taking 60 sec to boot up and another 60 secs to become responsive..sometimes it takes even more time to become responsive i don't know why that is so i think having an SSD should greatly improve the system performance and responsiveness.

    I have now had two AMD cards so i am going with Nvidia this time around.The problem is the pricing is confusing.
    I have narrowed down to MSI 750Ti 2GB for $195(latest architecture and very power efficient),Zotac 660 2GB for $225 and finally Zotac 760 Amp Edition 2GB for $360.So which do you think offers the best performance per cost ? The 760 seems a bit too expensive to me compared to 750Ti and 660.

    I liked the NZXT Phantom 410 a lot so i will stick to it unless they come out with the cheaper Phantom 240 they just recently announced before i buy the parts.
    How is that monitor different from one i selected ? Also what do you think of this monitor ? http://www.flipkart.com/dell-s2240l-21-5-inch-led-backlit-lcd-monitor/p/itmdf4zvqauzt2z4?pid=MONDF4ZHPUYJBYPR&otracker=from-search&srno=t_1&query=monitor&ref=6cd864b6-7f8f-4c70-89f5-641f926c92a5
    I intend to spend no more than 60k($1000).

    PC Case of your choice around 3000 Rs/- is Fine.

    Total : 57578/- Rs

    Buy the LG Monitor, because LG 5ms lag vs Dell 7ms lag
    Dell monitor didn't have a HDMI port, which LG Does.
    Dell has reflective glass vs mat finish glass in LG monitor.(Less reflections on LG Monitor)
    Dell has P-IPS Panel vs LG has AH-IPS , that means LG display will have accurate Colors.

    At the end Monitor is personal choice, So chose which is perfect for you

    Get Gigabyte GA-B85-D3H
    Don't buy Gigabyte GA-H81M-S1 I heard that this MOBO has problem with 5.1 speakers. If you want to use 5.1 speakers it will be a problem.Also it does not support Crossfire

    Gigabyte GA-B85-D3H MOBO supports Crossfire , So you can add another AMD GPU.

    Get R9 270x it is better than GTX 750Ti.
    R9 270x also supports Mantle API.

    If you want to add another r9 270x in Crossfire get 750 Watts PSU
    Seasonic M12II-750 750 Watts PSU : http://www.flipkart.com/seasonic-m12ii-750-750-watts-psu/p/itmdhx2hfgf9qhkz?pid=PSUDHX2H645GGHBM&otracker=from-search&srno=t_1&query=psu&ref=53c7f40a-f2c5-4ac2-abba-804dee6be255

    Final Total with 750 watts PSU Rs 59328/-
  6. If you can add Rs 6000/- plus to your Budget, you get SAPPHIRE GRAPHICS CARD R9 280X 3GB DDR5 DUAL X OC

    http://mdcomputers.in/products/graphics-card/sapphire-graphics-card-r9-280x-3gb-ddr5-oc-dual-x-uefi-with-battlefield-4.html&filter=ATTRIBU=R9+280X=80=GPU

    Nvidia GPU prices are very high in india. AMD GPUs are better to buy in India, AMD GPU's also have "Mantle API".
    So, you will get better fps with R9 280x.
    With r9 280x you can play most games at High or even some games at Ultra at 1080p.

    With R9 280x you should get a 750 Watts PSU.
