I'm buying a new desktop..I'm tight on budget, so i have decided to go for an AMD Processor..I'm a gamer..


This is my configuration:

CPU: AMD 3 GHz AM3 Phenom II 960T (http://www.flipkart.com/amd-3-ghz-am3-phenom-ii-960t-pr...)

Mobo: ASUS M5A97 Motherboard (http://www.flipkart.com/asus-m5a97-motherboard/p/itmd5p...)

RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB (http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-vengeance-ddr3-4-gb-1-x...)

PSU:Corsair CMPSU-600CXV2UK 600 Watts (http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-cmpsu-600cxv2uk-600-wat...)

Processor Fan: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Cooler (http://www.flipkart.com/cooler-master-hyper-212-evo/p/i...)

Cabinet: Antec Two Hundred V2 AP Chasis (http://shopclues.com/antec-two-hundred-v2-ap-chasis.htm...)


I'll use sata hard disk of my previous desktop and i'll buy a GPU after some time..I'm just about to order these stuff...I just want to know am i making a good choice? i still have Rs 1000 ($20) left in my pocket ..Any advice/recommendations?

Then wait til you have the money, you wont be able to use that PC til you get a GPU period.

i need it urgently and right now i have this much budget only...This CPU would be used for net surfing, watching HD movies on 1280 X 1024 resolution..I dont play much games but i have decided to use this for moderate gaming (that's why i wrote i'm a gamer..).Any other configuration in the same price range?

Get the cheapest GPU you can find, you will need a working display output. The Geforce 210 is as low end as you can get. Dont expect it to run any games though, I wouldnt trust it with Age of Empires.

And replace the thing with something decent as soon as you can.
