1.

CPU: AMD 3 GHz AM3 Phenom II 960T

Mobo: ASUS M5A97 Motherboard

PSU: Corsair CMPSU-600CXV2UK 600 Watts

Processor Fan: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Cooler

and

2.


CPU: i3 - 2120

Mobo: Intel DH67CL

PSU: Seasonic s12ii 520w

More about which configuration better
  1. The second one has a much better GPU.
  2. I'm also favoring that configuration but one part of this configuration is prohibiting me....H67 mobo wont utilize the onboard graphics after installing GPU....That part is striking me..

    I agree with #2.

    No need for onboard graphics when you have a discrete graphics card.
  4. thanks...I'm going with the second config...But i have another query...

    The cabinet which i have chosen is NZXT Vulcan Gaming mATX chassis (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146065)..But i am not sure about whether these components would fit in this cabinet or not ...So should i buy this cabinet?
  5. I like the vulcan case, but it is a M-ATX case which needs a m-atx motherboard(or ITX). The DH67CL is a full sized ATX motherboard which will not fit. The other parts fit ok.

    There are any number of M-atx motherboards that will do,
    Here is a H77 based one for a bit less:
