Get the His 4850 for 17000 and add another one in the future for some nice Xfire. I would also spend the 7400 on the 650w corsair psu. I'm trying to figure out what we could trim down here to cover the extra cost.

+1 for changing the psu.

i would have definately gone for the 4850 eyes closed if i could have pulled enough cash for it but it simply is not possible, i guess i will have the PSU changed (but isn't 600 watt enough or is corsair as a brand a better choice??). anything else that you guys would suggest is the rest of the setup okay or not??

Corsair makes great PSU's as of late. Your PSU is one component you should never skimp on.

The Cooler Master isn't a bad PSU, it's just mediocre. The Corsair is a very good one. Everything else looks good. The HD4850 would be well worth the extra money, but if it's not in the budget there's not much of a debate. But the Inno3D 9600GT is only 1200 Rs more and is a bit better.

thank you people for sparing your thoughts on this, will be heading down tomorrow to get this all put together... got the psu changed but i guess will stay with the 3870 just for the fact the board is xfire ready so probably when the kid gets some savings put together he can juice up his rig a bit.
