see if you can pick up a 2GB 5870. That card is getting cheap and will last you for a good while.
January 30, 2011 12:43:43 PM

Get a better PSU like the Corsair 650TX.The HAF 922 should cost 6000 rupees.You should be able to fit a GTX 560 Ti in that budget.
January 30, 2011 12:51:10 PM

i get that.need to bargain for the case.but hw much for the psu???and gtx 560 will a the range if abt 16k.hw can i get it in this budget.
January 30, 2011 1:29:59 PM

i think u can save a bit on mobo

Gigabyte P67 UD3R ~ Rs. 9000/-

i would also suggest gtx 560 ti
January 30, 2011 1:42:45 PM

from what i hrd.the asus p8p67 is the best for sandy bridge processors from evry i wntd to stick to this gigabyte one at par with the asus one???
January 31, 2011 1:36:43 PM

I am building a machine with the same cpu/mobo, personally I am going with the 6950 and I will be flashing the bios that unlocks the extra shaders (do at your own risk).... but that's just me :) 
January 31, 2011 2:09:20 PM

The GTX 560 consumes almost identical power to the 460, it's not a power hog. I currently have the 460, and my Antec 620Watt ended up being overkill. Also, the 560 is rediculously overclockable, some people have pushed the core clock past 1 Ghz. Also, heads up that ATi knows about BIOS flash, and if u do the BIOS flash, your warranty is voided
January 31, 2011 2:37:45 PM

hey wat is ds bios flash???n wat abt my previous question abt the diff btwn gigabyte n asus mobos.n one more thing.i see that the h67 brds are much cheaper than d p67 ones.y???apart from inbuilt graphics wat r d diffrncs???

Best solution

well, both are gud but asus provides some extra features for some extra cost
i don't know the exact differences between p67 and h67 but if u are planning to overclock, then go for p67
otherwise h67 is fine

n one more thing, i doubt gtx 560 ti will be available in india anytime soon :( 
i suggest u go for altec lansing vs 2621 speakers, available for Rs 2500/- n save dat money for a gud video card
February 1, 2011 4:47:49 AM

hmmmm i wont need to overclock dat much nytym soon.dats y i am thinking of getn a h67 one.dat wl b sav me arnd 5k or so.i can go for a gd video card dn.n altec lansing 5.1 wont b for 2500 i wl cost more.i wl get creatv inspire 5.1 for abt 3100 dat wl gv mor punch i gues.the prob is with the brd.p67 pro is 12k n h67 one is arnd 7.dat saves a lt of money.and for the graf card radeon 5770 is 7500 and 6950 si arnd 12k.mayb i can go for dat if i sav on the mobo.wat do u think shankey????
February 1, 2011 10:35:21 AM

go for it..
once u get a video card, u won't be able to differ between p67 n h67 :D 
February 1, 2011 1:27:14 PM

wow dats gr8 news den.i wud go for the h67 models.i got to knw the diffncs betwn the the 2 chipsets.but it wont mak a big diff for me and its for hardcore gamers
