    Ok here is something I came up with for starters

    MTHBD
    ASRock 880G EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 880G
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157191
    or
    ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 870
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157198

    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4

    HD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM

    PS: Antec EA 650W

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236059
    Total Comes to $693.93 with Shipping and Taxes (excluding rebates)

    Now I went with both boards incase you change your mind and wish to overclock and use crossfire. You could also upgrade to a better graphics card. But I will let you decide on that. :kaola:

    Thanx for the config. Probably go with ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 870.

    And what parts could I get in Intel for for the same price.
  10. Unfortunately every combo I came up with was way over your budget. The cheapest Intel system I came up with was $930 shipping and taxes.

    Thats ok. Can u post that intel config
  12. i agree with cthunder067.
    intel will be more expensive! but in gaming the i5 processer is better than the amd phenom ii x4 955. so according to your budget build an amd rig. dont worry.... in gaming the gpu does most of the work!
    so i would go with

    amd phenom ii x4 955 black edition
    asrock 870 extreme3
    radeon 5870 or the 6850 (the 5870 is better)
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600
    if you get short in cash buy a used pc case and invest the saved money on a good gpu.

    Sorry I was at work. :heink:
    Ok the board I recommend and the lowest sandy bridge processor would set you back a pretty penny.

    $123.99US
    ASRock P67 PRO3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157222

    $209.99US
    Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115073

    And I can only imagine what a Sandy Bridge processor would cost in India :ouch:

    Seriously I would just stick with AMD build and be happy.
  16. If I have to take a case with in $55 which one would u suggest and what are your views on
    Cooler Master Elite370 and Elite371.

    And please give views on

    I haven't forgotten about you. My first build was 40,000 without a monitor. Oh speaking of monitors, you definitely need to find a better place than this site. The cheapest 23in monitor was over 11, 000. Anyways I will try and get the price lower than 40,000. Probably means you will have to go with a 640hd instead of 1TB.

    I dont plan to buy monitor from this site.I am getting it from a local dealer 23inch AOC for Rs8000
  20. Ahh ok that helps, So I can put together a system for Rs40000? or is 8000 of it for the monitor?

    Actually that ram works with AMD boards. Just have to go into the bios and configure it.

    get a better gpu! hd 5770, if you are on a budget. the gts 450 wont be enough at that resolution. the i3 processor is okay... but the amd phenom iix4 955 smokes it when it comes to gaming. but in gaming the gpu does the most of the part. so if you are going with the i3 processor get a good gpu. like the gtx 460, hd 6850 etc...
    but if you are on a budget get the hd 5770. its a good card(actually a mid level card) but you wont be able to play metro 2033, crysis on maximum settings.(you can play these games but not on maximum settings.)
