Look forward to feedback on the below configuration -- for good future-proofed Media + Very Light Gaming , along with recommendation on the subsequent queries:

Intel Core i5-750, 2.66 GHz (INR 10550)
MSI P55-GD65 (INR 10000)
2 X 2GB Corsair (INR ?)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 - 1TB SATA (INR 4400)
Sapphire Radeon HD 5750, 1GB (INR 6500)
BenQ G2420HD (INR 12500)
Windows 7 Ultimate (INR 8930)

I already have Logitec Wireless Keyboard & Mouse and also LiteOn LH-16A1P487C, APC HI800SQ and Philips HTS.

#1. What will be the recommended cabinet for this? Will Cooler Master Elite 335 or 360 do? Or some other brand? I would also need it to fit 11" (W) X 20" (H) X 19" (D) space.
#2. Incase the recommended cabinet requires power supply, recommendation for that as well required.
#3. Does the suggested cabinet(s) have provision for an internal media reader as well? Otherwise is an external media reader recommended?
#4. Does this already have on-board sound card or do I need to consider one? If so, which one?
#5. Is there a way to the monitor thru wireless?
#6. Any other thing that needs to be considered in the inventory & quote.

Thanks in advance !

Here is a suggestion for "Light Gaming". Also looks like you have around 1500 USD if my math is right.

Well actually got more then I expected to be honest.

A side note.....Not sure what prices are there so we can always make some changes if need be since these are all from NewEgg.

HD5850 Around 310-320 USD.

Cheap Sata DVD Burner $20 USD

HAF 922 90 USD

1TB Seagate 7200.12 $90 USD

Antec Earth Watts 650 $80

G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) $180 USD

GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R $210 USD

i7-930 $300ish.....

Win 7 64 bit $105

Total is around 1405 USD. or ~63225INR


1) Answered in suggested build

2) Answered above. Also I would stick with Antec/Corsair/Seasonic

3) The case suggested has bays for an internal Card reader.

4) Onboard sound is good enough I would suggest sticking with the Onboard sound and if you are not satisfied add a Sound card later.

5) Cant answer that one.

6) If you are planning on over clocking then I would suggest an after market Cooler such as the Cooler Master 212 plus its around $35 USD

Hope I helped.

While USD 1500 might be the upper limit, it need not necessarily reach there -- so that I have some more left for any other stuff I want to spend on :-)

** You seem to have change the Processor (i5 to i7), Motherboard (MSI P55-GD65 to GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R), Graphics card (5750 to 5850), RAM (2 X 2GB to 3 X 2GB) -- any reason? Unless there is some issue with the earlier configuration, can we retain that set itself?

** HAF 922 -- it won't fit within the dimensions I mentioned in the initial post.. It has to fit well (with adequate space for cords) within 11" (W) X 20" (H) X 19" (D) space. Could you recommend a suitable cabinet & powersupply?

Thanks in advance !

1) You said you wanted to be more future proof. The 1156 socket is a dead socket and there is no room to upgrade it in the future other then the GPU. However, along side of that the i5-750 is a GREAT processor it is just built around a dead socket.

2) Dor the mobo answer if you change the processor you will need to change the mobo because they use completely different mobos. Also I would not pick that MSI mobo because it does not support USB3 or Sata 6 if you are set on going with an i5 I would suggest the ASUS board that supports U3S6.

3) Graphics card. I suggested the 5850 because it is a little more future proof then the 5750 that you picked. The 5750 will not play games very well at the resolution that your monitor provides. At a bear minimum I would get a 5770 for now and maybe get another and crossfire later when you find out it is still not enough.

4) Sorry about that I completely missed the dimensions. Ill have to look around for one. With size it gets a little tight. The height is killing me....

umm... You are kind of getting me back to the drawing board to think & decide on the Processor & Graphics card, as some of what you are saying also make sense... Appreciate sharing your views -- will give it a thought.

Anyway I'll need to wait for a good recommendation on the cabinet -- till then I have time to decide on Processor, Motherboard & Graphics card -- Look forward to the recommendations for cabinet now :D  :-)

Thanks again for all the responses.
