Hey guys, i'm from india and i have a budget of Rs 40,000 which is roughly $750-$800. Please use the site for the products.

Basically, i need at least 3 monitors, and need good performance. The PC would be on at least 20 hours/day. Here are the parts i have chosen

1. Motherboard

Intel DH67CL 32GB DDR3 Desktop Board

2. Processor:

Intel Core i5-3570K 3.80GHz Processor

3. HDD

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM SATA Internal Desktop Hard Drive (ST1000DM003)

4. Graphics

HIS Radeon HD6750 Fan 1GB GDDR5 ATI PCI E Graphic Card (H675F1GD)

5. RAM

Transcend 4GB DDR3 1333MHz Desktop Ram x 2

I would leave that to you because i dont knwo too much about them! And i dont mind stretching my budget to another 10k rupees.

Thanks guys!

Site unfortunately not working, but not that motherboard with i5-3570K. What are you hoping to do on THREE monitors. Not game, I trust, as that graphics card will only game at a very low level on ONE monitor.

What is the purpose of this computer?

You probably only need a 450w PSU, but make sure that it's a high quality unit.

As far as the case, just pick the price you want to pay and buy the Corsair or Antec at that price point.

There is one Antec that is bundled with a 380w PSU. I can't find the info on the site, but often Antec bundles high quality PSUs with it's cases. So long as you're not overclocking, 380w should be sufficient for your build. Importantly, you will not be able to update the video card to one that is more powerful.

On a side note, you should not use that processor with that motherboard. The H67 chipset is very bad for overclock and the i5-3750K is made for overclocking (that is what the "K" means). Therefore they don't work well together. Either get a non-K processor or a different chipset (like Z77).

Ditch the i5 3570k, it will be useless with that motherboard (it won't work at all as a matter of fact as the mobo is not compatible). Go for a sandy bridge i5 and spend the remainder on a better gpu like the HD 6870 or HD7850

If you want work type performance, rather than any great gaming capability, use something like i5-3450, together with a reasonable quality H77 motherboard. That site really doesn't like me, and won't let me search anything. For graphics card, try to get a HD7xxx. You should then only need around a 400w power supply. Just be sure it's a decent quality one, from someone like Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, or XFX.
