  1. That video card is way underpowered for your system. Consider this instead.

    ASUS ENGTX550 TI DC/DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  2. That's the same power as the zotac card you originally had listed. The 400 is just too underpowered for your cpu, you need to be looking at a 550 (at a minimum) or 550 ti (preferable).

    Take a look at this one:
    Galaxy NVIDIA GeForce GTX550 Ti 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

  3. Is everything else ok?? I am confused between i5 2500k and i7 2600k
    I am also confused about ram whether corsair or gskill
    Cooler whethe to go for seasonic 620v or cooler master 750V
  4. The 2500k is preferable unless you are using heavily multithreaded apps. Save yourself $100 and get the i5 unless you really need the hyperthreading of the i7.

    Corsair or gskill doesn't matter. As long as the ram meets the specification of 1.5 volts or lower

    The Seasonic is much better than the Cooler Master.

  9. Try to make it possible in aroud 50-55..
    processor,motherboard,ram ,graphic card,cooler,cabinet and nothing else
  10. 900-1000 USD roughly...

    Do you think you need a k version processor? I'm assuming that because your asking this question in the first place, you wont be overclocking. Also, for a gaming machine, the i5 2500 is plenty enough horse power. I agree with the above poster, save the 100$ (5500 rupees) and go with the i5 over the i7.

    What games are you planning on playing?

  15. For gaming and surfing the web you will not see any difference between the i5 and i7. So it is just throwing away money on the i7. Besides, with the 2500k, you can overclock the cpu and get even better performance from it.

  17. Hey bsomeone told me sabertooth x77 is better than asus P8Z77-V PRO Motherboard with around 30$ difference????/
    Which1 shall i choose
  18. The extra money on the sabertooth all goes for that silly looking shrouding covering the motherboard. It's not worth the extra money.
