First gaming build under $2000/1Lakh

Hi,this is my first build and want to play games like GTA-4,Battlefield-3,CoD-MW3,Fifa-12,Batman Arkham City,Crysis,Metro 2033,Max payne 3 and upcoming games games like gta5,far cry 3 etc and probably very botherded about noise because my current pc does not make any noise(I can barely hear it even I put my ear near to my cabinet).

Parts needed:Mouse,GPU,CPU,Motherboard,PSU,Cabinet,Monitor(Maybe,will tell later),other gaming equipments(if needed),HDD

Parts not needed:Keyboard,Speakers

SLI or CFX:Maybe

Overclocking:Want to but don't know how

Other info:As I've stated above I am very much bothered about noise and second,I'm thinking about buying monitor(very much confused) because currently have a monitor which supports 1680*1050 res and I'm still happy with that but firstly making build without monitor and other gaming equipments.

Thx in advance!

  2. sorry i didn't pick mouse, to me a $12 from best buy works . . :lol: though i suggested a decent monitor since you are have trouble deciding. really any 23"+ @ 1920x1080 5ms or under is fine.

    i also suggest getting the FULL version of W7 so you do not need to buy another OS if you swap motherboards in the future.

    CPU: i5-3570k
    Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
    Mobo: Gigabyte Z77 UD5H
    SSD: Plextor M3 128 GB
    HDD: Western Digital Black 2 TB
    GPU: EVGA GTX670
    Case: Antec P280
    PSU: PC Power and Cooling 950W
    Optical: Sony 24x DVD burner
    Monitor: Asus 24in
    OS: Win 7 Home

    Total: $1744.45 with MIR

    For noise issues, you could consider liquid cooling. I don't generally recommend it due to the risks.
    The Antec P280 was specifically chosen for it's quietness.
    The PSU gives plenty of room to OC and SLI in the future. You can even upgrade to a 680 and SLI that instead.
    You could also change the monitor to a Dell Ultrasharp 2412.
    This build will max out everything for the next couple of years and leaves you plenty of money for any more peripherals.

    both the 670 and 680 do not need that much power. a SLI set up with each will use 300-330 watts respectively. we are not talking about 480s or 590s here; getting too large of a PSU can be just as bad as too little; an idle load of less that 20% of the PSU causes excessive heat and will age the capacitors.
  5. Ah right. I used that PSU last night with a LGA 2011 board and for some reason carried that line of thought to today.
  6. Guys,I need prices and parts from India(especially but why gtx 670 if I can buy it,is there any problem with gtx 680 and forgot to tell that that my monitor is 21.5inch.
  7. Here's my own selected build:
    GPU-first one is amp edition and second one is gtx 680









    Is everything looks good?
  8. could you fix the links please. all i get are heatsinks and the same cabinet :(
  9. Nah dun hit a GTX 680 - the GTX 670 and HD 7970 are way better buys price/performance wise - read Tom's take of the GTX 680 after the release of the GTX 670 and the recent price cuts + GHZ edition flashing of HD 7970s
  10. They also got gtx 670 amp edition(zotac),I know it's better than stock gtx680 but still confused,suggest me?
  11. Anyone please suggest,I will order the parts in 2weeks.
  12. i would suggest going with the gtx 670 zoltac AMP! as it will out perform a 680 reference card. have no idea about the slightly overclcoked galaxy though it will be close for less money.
