Do you plan on getting a new monitor? Also tell us about your current motherboard, maybe it can support the Core 2 Quads.

GeForce GTX460 1GB

These are great parts for gaming and overclocking, but as you know the motherboard plays an important role in that.

Hi nitin-26 and welcome to Tom's forum.

I suggest you wait two or three weeks, in that time you will see better options (Sandy and maybe Bulldozer), with better performance and good prices. Upgrade now isn't the best option.

Your current motherboard does not support the Core 2 quads.So head over to the Systems section where we can discuss in detail about upgrade options.

well thank you but i was looking for the i7920 or i7930 also tell me if the i7870 is any better than these two and if so tell me the cost difference and performance difference and as for the graphics card i was thinking for the gtx570 will these not fit in my budget if so i can even get a 120gb hard drive or solidstate driveand also i forgot to tell you that i have 2x2gb ddr2 ram but its frequency is only 667mhz tell me that will it affect my gaming realtime if so then i will upgrade my ram too for a 4gb ram with extra funds for that apart from my 50000 also the main reason i think i have to upgrade my motherboard is that even though i have 4gb ram it shows only 2.75gb of ram and i dont think it will support my i7920 or i7930 so tell me about that well my motherboard is a GIGABYTE S-series motherboard the
GA-945GCM-S2L/S2C

The i7 920, 930 , 950 or the 870 will be stretching your budget. You don't really need that much to play games at that resolution.Just overclock the CPU, get a new PSU and a GTX 460 1GB which should be more than enough. And make sure that you have 64 bit Windows installed.

hey tell me how much my budget should be in order to buy those parts can the gtx4601gb run the latest dx11 games at pretty high settings with a little tessalation at about 20fps also i have posted a thread on the systems page so check it out also tell also tell me if you want me not to buy a new cpu because you said that just overclock the cpu hey i also play my most favourite game Grand Theft Auto IV known as the most cpu demanding game so i will need a new quad core cpu and hey thanks for helping me

hey i have figured out this configuration
CPU=intel- core i72600k -Rs 16960
GPU=nvidia-GTX570-18999
motherboard-MSI P67A-GD55 LGA 1155 Intel P67 -Rs9750
RAM-Transcend-Transcend 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333 MHz memory kit (for Intel Core i7 and Core i5 CPUs)-Rs7100
Harddrive-Seagate IDE 400 GB (7200 RPM) –Rs3550
power Supply-Cooler Master GX-750W-Rs6750
he will give me a discount of rs7000 on my old cpmputer parts so in total it will beRs56110(willing to spend more) give me better options with better config is possible also tell me if there is a cheaper option to save money

Hi.

The i5-2500K is much better for price/performance and I'd go with ASUS P8P67 Pro ot Gigabyte P67A-UD4, both are very good mobos.

Why IDE 400GB?, try to go with SATA drive and be sure that the PSU has a 80+ certification.
