Hello,

I'm building a new desktop...I'm a gamer and right now i'm tight on budget....The hard disk i'll using would be from my old desktop...The processor which i have chosen is AMD fx 6100..

I don't have much knowledge about Motherboards, Graphics Cards and PSU...So need suggestions regarding these three products..


My last two motherboard were dead due to heat problem, so now i want to build a system which is good in performance and reliability..I'm not into stuff of over-clocking.

I have the AMD FX 6100 and I was disappointed with the gaming performance! It has weak per core performance and I had better performance in games with my Core 2 Duo @ 2.33GHz to my surprise. I would recommend going with Intel, but if you want an AMD system go for the older Phenom II range a lot better and cheaper with none of this integer core rubbish!

Its approximately Rs 25000 that's around $ 460-470 for mobo+processor+PSU+GPU...If money is an issue, then i can buy GPU after sometime as well...I just want something best in performance and reliability

I have to order everything online, but I'm getting not this PSU in any of the famous Websites that delivers product in India...So, any other PSU you want to suggest?

And could you tell me is this the same Mobo that you have suggested:
