Only the cabinet and inside stuff .Is AMD good or NVIDIA Graphics? and MOBO also INTEL OR AMD ?. I am living in india so give me the amount in Rs. if possible. TY
You could have just added a reply in your last thread.:) Anyway,what you basically want /are looking at is a new pc without the cabinet (you already have that) and I had a look at your cabinet.It supports ATX/MicroATX motherboards.
Motherboard - Intel P67BA. - Rs. 6243.
Processor - Intel Core i5 2500. - Rs. 12947.
PSU - Corsair CMPSU 650V2 - Rs. 6296.
GPU - Sapphire HD 6870 - Rs. 12466.
RAM - G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 2 GB PC RAM - Rs. 2592
Total - Rs. 40544
I am not a computer expert.I just did what works best in India .You could try posting in an Indian tech forum and ask there also.To everyone else reading this thread,this is my first attempt at piecing together bits and pieces for someone,so please be kind while making corrections.:)

Not sure what you're asking but are you the guy who ask about the i3 earlier? So you decide to have a full upgrade, we will try to help you.
EDIT: Apologize, I mistake you as someone, but don't create double thread please.
Processor Heat Sink Fan: CM Hyper 212 Evo (Optional, but a great option when you want a quiet system.) The stock HSF is really loud...
Motherboard: ASrock Z77 Pro4
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4GB RAM (You can buy 2 if you wish)
GPU: HIS 6870 IceQ X
PSU: Corsair TX650
As for the case, it doesn't seem to be that great but I think it would still be fine because it is a mid tower ATX case, but you are free to also upgrade the case.
refillable-This person has also posted a thread with the same name.
I don't think he is the person with the i3 vs core 2 duo question.That is a user called abhi_reapar.BTW,thats a very good build you have put up.:) Tom's is really a fun place to learn.:)

if can suggest me AMD processor and board with ATI/AMD graphics, cabinet and ram . and all its price .
thank you for your suggestion . Is corsair good or G.Skill
intel is better in pure gaming, so I think you want to do some kind of, rendering works? No problem. I recommend the Phenom II series but they are all currently out of stock. Is the FX series OK for you?:
