G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB (F3-12800CL9S-4GBRL x2)

Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 Z68 OR ASUS P8P67 PRO B3 Revision LGA 1155

Kingston 30gb ssd plus WD Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 6.0Gb/s [WD5000AAKX]

    Which video card you are going to use? The psu you mentioned can easily tolerate Ati 6770 OR nvidia 550. Core i5 is a good choice. As you said that you are on a tight budget i suggest you to use a p67 because it will do all you want and will be lighter on pocket.

    See Last 2 links i posted. I am preferring GTX 460
  3. Asus p67 mobo and Asus gtx 460 what say? PSU will be ok and SSD will perform well
  4. GTX560 Ti.
    CM 690 II Advanced.
    120GB SSD. Look at something like OCZ or GSkill. They are really good.
  5. Crucial M4 SSD, Z68 motherboard (you will thank me later if you also pair the SSD with it), 560 Ti is much better than the 460 unless you were gonna SLI two of them

    Thanks for that but You know being in India and Having passion for Gaming is a Bad combination...... Lots of Best things in The world of Hardware are Never ever Heard in India

    Crucial is unfortunately not available in India And Dude to Budget issue I am trying a Asus p67 Mobo with 60Gb 6gbps SSD

    I agree on That gtx 560 is better i am waiting for ASUS gtx 560 Factory Super-clocked version but i am not going to SLI in future

    Ans Gskill SSD in not available in India (sucks!)

    I want to aks you if That for a Non SLI build is Corsair CX500 sufficient??
  8. Corsair VX550W is a better model.

    Try something from Intel. I think they should be available.

    I am eyeing Corsair v2 series
  10. Not all of the V2 models that are in India are good. Stick with the tried and tested models. The VX series is one of the finest performers in the Corsair series for me!

    Also you can take a look at this:

    SeaSonic S12 Energy Plus SS-550HT 550W.
