help me out.based on this please hlp me out with the motherboard and graphics card for both and the prices.
my total budget is arnd 50k.but i will buy it in mayb august or september so the budget can be inflated now which will come dwn in 6 mnths tym.
give the entire configuration.i got a few specifications here from mosox but i need a few changes.so hlp me out.i will go for ny 1 of the above processors.then the other specifications will begin after that

If you are building a new system get the Intel 2500K or 2600K. And if you are not going to build it for a few months, wait for the new AMD bulldozer and see what the price and performance against the Intel will be. No reason to go with the 760 because in 6 months the socket will be dead anyway. Go for the new 2500/2600K Sandybridge with 1155 socket. More future proof and faster.

If you are going to buy it around summer, all the prices will be lower. Right now it is new and hard to say what it WILL be later.

You are building too far into the future for any specific recommendations to have even the least bit of relevance. Just keep an eye on the tech marketplace and start asking maybe a few weeks before you will actually buy.

For that budget, you could never build a 2500k based PC for couple of months! So, either forget about it or increase your budget by say 50% :p

No problem. Just remember one thing... in 6 months the whole game could change and prices will definitely change. Every year in computer time is like 25 years in real time. So if your computer is 4 years old... that is like 100 years... ancient almost. So 6 months is hard to determine.

2 weeks before you are ready to build, ask again. I guarantee you some things will change by then!

Happy building! :hello:

We were assuming you had that already. If you don't, then you should lower everything a bit. Or you can look for a Dell or HP bundle deal with LCD and everything... But you are looking to tack on another $100-200 for the monitor (Depending on what size, resolution, and brand like). The keyboard, mouse, and speakers... that is nothing... less than $40 for the whole lot, unless you want a huge sound system!

If you really need to include a large monitor, large speakers, mouse and keyboard... maybe you do want to look at the AMD systems more, because the overall value. Intel is not for low budget builds.

What rubbish?

1) OP wants to build a PC in India, if I got him rightly.
2) Newegg selling price can never compared in most of the countries, especially in developing countries. IMPOSSIBLE.
3) It says "SuperCombo" so it's not selling a PC! How about adding a LCD Monitor? And other peripherals? Aren't they part of the PC budget?

So, OP can't build even a 760 *PC* (P55) in that tight budget let alone aiming for any Sandy Bridge configs. For him, there must be budget hike. That's the only sane thing to do!

akula2 are you following me around to give me a headache? If you can read fully before you post, you would know I didn't realize he needed the whole finished build. 90% of people wanting to build a computer here already got that $hit.

And if you want a whole system with mouse, keyboard, speakers, LCD, tower... you need to be looking at an HP or Dell or something. I realize he is in India and from his first post it looks like he want to build a damn computer, not by a retail box ready to go. BTW I am in China and I can't buy a Sandybridge system for less than $3000... I can't even buy an iphone for less than $500 unless it is second hand.

Why are you following all my posts with B$ comments that aren't helping to answer the question or help me or anyone else to answer the question? You have too much free time to waste?

PS. Using NewEgg to compare and get ideas for what he wants is a good place to look, even if the price is different in his neck of the woods. And since he is looking a few months out... this will likely be his price then. So if you don't have anything useful to say, why post? Need more REP points or something? :na:

Well, AMD is better for the money. Intel is better if you can spend more. It is about price versus performance. The AMD system cannot touch the newer Intel systems in performance, only price. Don't get me wrong. AMD 4 or 6 core CPUs will beat up many of the current i5 and i7... but the new Sandybridge Intel chips are more power efficient, and faster at lower clock speeds. If you compare the x4 965 to the older i7-920... the 920 does not blow away the AMD. The AMD is in fact faster at a few of the benchmarks and neck and neck with most of them. But if you have the money, the AMD system currently cannot even touch the 2600k. It can run with it, but the 2600k will kill it in benchmarks and games.

However, in the time he has to build a new computer, 6 months from now the new AMD chips will be out called Bulldozer and they might through it back at Intel and be neck and neck with the new Intel chips. Only time will tell. But if you want to build a complete computer system right now, AMD will give you 90% of the Intel performance at %60 of the cost.

Look at the 2600k more, because if the prices drops in a few months, it is better than the current AMD. I don't know what the new AMD Bulldozers will be like, but they are due next sales quarter. But if you are buying a complete system today, AMD is best for the money! If you are buying a complete system in 6 months, no one can say for sure. So just watch the 2600k and be looking for benchmarks for the AMD bulldozer chips as soon as they hit the market, then you can decide much easier!

And one more small piece of advice. No matter which system you choose to buy, after you have bought it... do not read any more reviews and stop checking prices. Something better will always come out in the future and prices will always sharply drop a few months after you have bought anything. You will be happy no matter which system you choose, just use it and stop checking about it after you own a new setup.

The CPU prices are not that different in India when compared to US.. However, the prices for GPU, motherboard and ram are significantly higher.. As such, 50k becomes quite a restrictive budget for any build.. If the thought process to compromise with case, PSU (not recommended) and stuff, then some adjustments can be done.. However, I'll again point out that a 6 months waiting period is quite long to start building now..
