Parts required -

*Intel* Processor (Xeon / Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge)
Mobo that suppors PCI 3.0
SSD - 80GB()

Approximate Purchase Date: By June end.

Budget Range: 1100 tops(US market price or newegg price as reference, whichever works)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Workstation. Used for programming only.

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, Speakers, on board graphics on the mobo

Country: India

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Purchasing from a local reseller or maybe ebay.

For calculating the price you can use a reference
website such as or the price in US from
any US reseller. The price difference in total should
be around 15% more in India I think compared to the US.
The $1100 limit is against price calculated from a US based

Parts Preferences: Intel microprocessor a must.

Have an AMD budget quad core box currently.

Overclocking: Preferred

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: No constraints here

PSU: Needs suggestions here.

SSD: Need a fast SSD - 80gb minimum size


Cabinet: Need suggestions here. The cabinet should be big enough to hold a GTX 680.

Additional comments:

Looking for a system that offers max perf from the cpu.

I do have to stress that I run a heavily multithreaded application that saturates every
core on my box and if the no of actual physical cores is > 4(without HT enabled),
even better. 6/8 physical cores would be really good and should set me up for the
2-3ys before I upgrade.

Needs to have a good cache. On board graphics not required, since I have a discrete graphics(gtx 680)

I have ordered a GTX 680, so the mobo *MUST* support PCI 3.0. Same with the PSU and cabinet.

Thanks all
