  1. 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

    hdd
    hsf
    odd
    case
    etc.
  5. Cpu- Intel Pentium Dual Core E5700 3Ghz
    Gpu-Integrated Intel GMA 3100
    Ram-1GB DDR2 Ram
    Psu-450w psu
    Mobo-Asus P5KPL AM/PS mobo
    hdd-500GB hdd

    Other than this info i cannot tell u more bcoz i dont knw much about these things as I am new to these things...!!
    I would really appreciate if you could use this info to help me.

    Also suggest me a budget motherboard which is compatible with my processor(mentioned above), DDR3 RAM and with the ATI Radeon HD 7750 GDDR5 1GB graphics card i i am gonna buy.

    Thanks..!! :hello:
  6. 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/itmdfa2pbnwcgt7x?pid=MBDD69WPZD7G7GQY&ref=0c0dd235-8db1-463b-833a-c5d5c7b92afe

    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

    Can you also tell me about this one -- It is the ASRock Z77 Extreme3 it is priced at 9500 INR on flipkart.

    Thanks!!
  8. 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

    RAM: gskill 4GB 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 CAS (better to go for 2 x 2 than 4 x 1)

    Hard Disk: WD Caviar Green 1TB 64MB cache

    GPU: Gigabyte OC 7750
    http://www.flipkart.com/gigabyte-amd-ati-gv-r775oc-1gi-1-gb-gddr5-graphics-card/p/itmd7vspfutzzzbq?pid=GRCD7VQNQRTA5XN3&ref=1089f828-6630-4502-bcb0-f46040596a9c

    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
  11. 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...
  12. 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!!
  14. 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.
  18. 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
