    hi sunnyjoy! :)

    wow just typing your name makes me feel better.

    is this something your putting together for a long haul (not looking to upgrade anything for awhile)?

    what are you looking to do with it? (word processing, email, video encoding, gaming)

    what kind of budget are you looking at?
  2. Do you happen to have a price range?????
  3. My budget is around INR 35000. Equivalent to almost $715. Actually I am looking for a gaming PC

  5. Is that $716 considering what you already posted or would that include it? I know of some great cases, like the Corsair 500R, but they would probably be out of your range if all you have is $715.

    As for mobo, I would suggest any of the Asus line. Mainly, since you are going with a non K edition, a H67 so you can save a bit of money there. No neet for the P67/Z68 if you can't overclock the CPU anyways.

    I have considered Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500W.
    Besides I dont need keyboard, mouse,monitor or speaker.i already have these.my main concern is the CPU

    We use that mobo in some of our builds. Its pretty nice. I would go for that.

    As for the case, tell me how much you would have left with that mobo and the other parts. I will try to price a nice one for you.

    that really is not a desirable CPU manufacturer, the quality of components are not reliable.
    a review:

    is there a corsair, antec, OCZ or XFX that is affordable for you?

    or something like this would be a lot better:

    The price is like below:
    Processor : INR 11000
    RAM : INR 1100
    GPU : Around INR 7000 [Radeon HD 6770 or 6790]

    The remaining INR 11000 for DVD R/W , MOBO, PSU and Cabinet

    So you are saying that you have roughtly the cost of an I5-2400 left to purchase the rest of these components. It might be a stretch, considering that you need a good PSU, a relatively good mobo and case and DVD drives are cheap. Do you have a HDD? Do you have a preferred website/ supplier?

    Total 9795

    A little bit to spare for any upgrades. This should be a minimum. A 500w PSU will cover the 6790. Use the extra money to upgrade the components, probably the motherboard.
