NEW GAMING RIG BUILD

Hello,
Hi, I am planning to build a new gaming rig

I have a approximate configuration in mind.
Thought you could optimize it with your class of knowledge and experience

Board : ASUS MAXIMUM V GENE

GCARD : MSI GTX560-Ti HAWK 1gb

Processor : Intel i7 2600k

RAM :

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

HDD:

Seagate Barracuda 6.0gb/s 64mb 7200rpm 2TB

SSD :
later this year for sure

MONITOR:

Benq XL2420T


Power Supply : Cooler Master Extreme 650W


Please suggest me some good cabinets for something around 100-110 $ (INR 5000- 6000)

A detailed budget for each component is as follows:

(Please note: The figures just indicate a range I am willing to spend for that component , coz its necessary to draw a line somewhere to keep up with the budget )

MBoard : 270$ (INR 15000)
GCard : 270$ (INR 15000)
Processor : 325$ (INR 18000)
RAM : 70$ (INR 4000)
HDD : 125$ (INR 7000)
Monitor : 330 $ (INR 18000)
Case : 100-110$ (INR 5000-6000)
Power Supply : 100$ (INR 5500)


Total = Close to 1550-1600$ range (INR 87000)

(OS is additional, not included in this )

I am residing in India

Please provide me with your suggestions with any modifications if for better in the same price range of these components

Regards,
Sandeep G.

  1. You really dont need the i7 for gaming. You would get better gaming performance buying an i5 2500k then putting the money saved to get a better graphics card.
  2. ^Oh yes!

    +1

    Although wr6133 is right an i7 is not needed, it puts it into perspective when you realise that a pentium g can play bf3 with minimal problems. Get an i5 and put the money elsewhere perhaps for the ssd.
  4. +1 ON THE 2500K
    you can go better with the gpu and.psu on.that account.
    If you must go cooler master then go silent.pro. The only good line from them
    Otherwise I would recommend a seasonic, corsair or antech 600w or better.
    Enjoy

  6. Well
    as far now

    we have decided on

    BOARD : ASUS P8Z77-V

    http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Int...t_1155/P8Z77V/

    GPU : Asus GTX 670 DCUII TOP

    http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/N...TX670DC2T2GD5/

    RAM : not decided . Please advice

    PROCESSOR : intel i5 2500k or i5 3570k . Please advice

    HDD : was planning to get a Seagate Barracuda 6.0gb/s 64mb 7200rpm 2TB

    ( Any other specific for gaming in the same price range , please advice)

    SSD : Later this year for sure

    Keyboard & Mouse : Please suggest ( Nothing expensive max around Rs 5000 for a combo set)

    Monitor : NO 3D STUFF ! Please suggest a regular 2-D gaming monitor 23-24inches

    Case : CORSAIR CARBIDE 400R

    http://www.corsair.com/pc-cases/carb...ower-case.html

    (Is the size of this case suitable for ASUS P8Z77-V and considering there is a GTX 670 in there ?)

    Also please suggest an alternative , just in-case this model is unavailable in Indian markets.


    Power Supply : Please suggest one accordingly considering

    there s a GTX 670 in
    ( Future REGULAR OC - (NO LIQUID COOLING STUFF )
    couple of fans with present purchase
    and future potential buy for cpu cooler for cpu OC)
  7. RAM ADVICE FOR MAXIMUS V GENE BY ASUS


    Requirement : 8gb 1600


    I checked out the memory support list provided for V GENE by ASUS.

    A few queries related to that:

    1. Only the specified models for the various brands will work at the designated speed ?
    2. Which of the following variation is better :
    a) single 8gb stick
    b) 2*4gb KIT
    c) 2*4gb separate packing

    In India the following RAM models are available for purchase. But these are NOT mentioned on the MEM Support PDF provided by ASUS for MAXIMUS V GENE.

    Please brief me which one of these will work at the specified speed without any issues
