Hi,

Your mobo supports only DDR2 RAM. The RAM you selected is DDR3. Don't buy it.

Tell me your approximate budget. And the games that you want to play. I can you help you better if you give me more information, i.e, your entire setup

You can also tell me the resolution at which you are playing games... for e.g: 1024 x 768/1280 x 1024/1920 x1080 etc

and in the meanwhile u can look at this product... it supports your cpu and it will also support the RAM u have chosen

http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-ga-g41m-motherboard/p/...

and flipkart prices a bit higher than the actual market price... check with local dealers before buying...

the motherboard i suggested, with the RAM and the GPU (7750) u mentioned should cost you around 12000 INR... a bit above your budget

that is an LGA 1155 motherboard... for the latest generation Intel processors...

You can't use ur E5700 in that motherboard because your processor is a LGA 775 processor... an older generation...

and also let me point out to you that if u spend 9500 INR on a mobo... u will nothing left in ur budget for RAM or GPU...

is your budget flexible?
because I can tell you a good gaming PC in 20000 ~ 25000 INR which will have all the latest generation components... and can match, if not beat, the Xbox 360/PS3

i am putting a list here with their flipkart links:

cpu: intel i3 3220
http://www.flipkart.com/intel-i3-3220/p/itmdeus8hzz5mnf...

cabinet: cm elite 310
http://www.flipkart.com/cooler-master-elite-310-cabinet...

psu: antec vp450
http://www.flipkart.com/antec-vp450-450-watts-psu/p/itm...

motherboard: gigabyte ga-b75m-d3h
http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-ga-b75m-d3h-motherboar...

RAM: gskill 4GB 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 CAS (better to go for 2 x 2 than 4 x 1)
http://www.flipkart.com/g-skill-ripjawsx-ddr3-4-gb-2-x-...

Hard Disk: WD Caviar Green 1TB 64MB cache
http://www.flipkart.com/wd-caviar-green-1-tb-desktop-in...

GPU: Gigabyte OC 7750
http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-amd-ati-gv-r775oc-1gi-...

Out of these you probably won't need the hard disk or the case...

Also do your own research... try anandtech's bench to check graphic card and processor benchmarks:
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU12/372

With a B75 motherboard you won't be able to overclock your CPU... but the CPU which I suggested is not overclockable... so it shouldn't matter for now...

Also I think you don't have much experience assembling a rig... so when u r building your system it is better to have it done by an expert atleast for now... u can always learn... just don't burn your system :D

if you remove the hard disk & cabinet i mentioned, (which I am assuming you already have), the cost of the system will be ~22000 INR...

also instead of the hard disk i mentioned... u can use an SSD... and when u install the OS on that SSD... u r system will boot faster and shut down faster...

in fact all programs on that SSD will run faster...

My own rig is starting in ~10 secs and shutting down in ~5 secs with an SSD...

The one I am using is: OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD

Thanks a lot for all the products.
Actually I built up my own system by asking in other forums...Here is what i Got....

CPU- Intel I5 3450 3.1GHZ LGA 1155
GPU-ATI Radeon HD 7770 1GB GDDR5
MOBO-ASRock Z77 Extreme3
PSU-Corsair CMPSU-600GUK 600 Watts PSU
COOLER-Cooler master 212 EVO
RAM-Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz

It costs me nearly around 40000 INR (FLIPKART) but other say its worth the performance I am gonna get.

Moreover I don't think i3 cpu's are good enough for gaming......!!!

I need your review on this rig.
Thanks!!

It's a great rig... and is definitely going to give you a lot of performance...

But

The i5 3450 doesn't overclock... so u dnt really need a Z77 mobo... or the cm 212 EVO cooler... stock intel will keep ur machine cool enough

But this rig will help when u want to upgrade to a K - series processor.

Have fun!!!

If i dont get a Z77 mobo, then there is no PCI-E 3.0 slot for my Graphics card.....Do you have any recommendation ??

Others say I should take B75 motherboard which will cost me less.

the gigabyte board which i suggested has a pci-e 3.0 slot... almost all b75 mobos have pci-e 3.0 slots... what u probably won't get is 2 pci-e 3.0 slots for crossfire/SLI
