Im planning to build pc within a month.

My budget is $ 650-700

The only parts i require are - cpu, ram , graphics card and mobo.

I ve decided upon these parts

cpu- core i5 750
ram- 4 gb ddr3
graphics- gtx 460 1 gb

Can u recommend me a mobo? I dont wanna spend much on it but dont want any bottlenecks. Budget is about 80-110$.
Will all the listed parts support each other?

More about : mobo

^ Well you will face issue with P55 boards having SATA 6GB/s and USB3.0 only when you will be going with more than 1 graphics card...

Some good mobo options

But if you dont require SATA 6GB/s or USB3.0, then

Even this would work, but dont expect the video o/p ports to work though...
And also if you are into overclocking, then stick with P55...

Get a HD 5870 and a reasonably priced platform just for games ^^

^ No that doesnt....
If you want SLI, SATA 6GB/s and USB 3.0, then that ASUS mobo that I had linked in the combos is the best option...
But you do get cheaper SLI boards but not with SATA 6GB/s and USB3.0...

This will be my configuration then-

cpu- core i5 750
ram- 4 gb ddr3
graphics- gtx 460 1 gb
GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3

what will the recommended power supply for this?

And will I get all these parts under 700$?

wont these be enough to run latest games at 1680x 1050 with maxed out settings?

the zotac 4tx 460 has a full hdmi output

but the gigabyte has a mini hdmi output.

what is the difference between them? My monitor has an hdmi input.

A cooler master GX 650 Watt pwer supply should do u well provided that u dont plan to sli. Its ur choice.
The ASUS P7P55D/ Deluxe Motherboard at $149/169.00 is alos a good recommendation for ur build.
However, ur $700.00 budget is going to be very close with either the Gigabyte or the ASUS mobo.
In the end, it is guarnateed that you will not pass $750 tho depending on the ram manufacturer you select.

^ 870S chipsets are for AMD...Are you planning to go with AMD CPU??
And Yes the Fuzion will allow for SLI...

Oh...
Well even if you will be able to go SLI, I would not suggest that board as of now because you would have to rely on the drivers of the Fuzion chip manufacturers...So when any new card or game comes to the market, they would have to provide an update else you would have issues...

^ AFAIK there is no difference except the size...If you have DVI on both the monitor and the card, then connect using those...Go for HDMI if you want audio o/p as well...
