    The AMD rig is fine,

    For the intel if your going Z77 then swap out for an Ivy bridge Processor ie i5 3750k and instead of a gigabyte or asus board use the AsRock Z77 Extreme4 I have seen great reviews about it

    And if i need to choose, i would choose AMD because it would be cheaper , but overall the Intel rig would be alot faster, I also would suggest getting a 650 watt powersupply just to be on the safe side

    After long research [Flipkart,IT Depot,PriceIndia], I have finally decided to go with the Intel build.

    Following is my final rig [INR] -

    Processor - Intel Core i5-2500K - 13,532/-
    Mobo - Asrock Z77 Pro4 - 9739/-
    RAM - Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz 8 GB (2X4 GB) - 3,538/-
    HDD - WD Caviar Blue 1 TB (WD10EALX) SATA III 7200 RPM - 5,400/-
    GPU - MSI R6850 Cyclone 1GD5 Power Edition - 9,300/-
    PSU - Seasonic S12II 620 Bronze 620 Watt - 5,006/-
    Heatsink - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - 2,101/-
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    Total - 48,616/-
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
