Its not great I will say that. Is this a pre-built?

CPU, while a good choice a year ago, has been replaced by the 3570k.
Motherboard is only the bare minimum to make it work. Wont allow overclocking (which is the point of a 2500k).
RAM is overkill, no need for RAM faster than 1600mhz.
The Momentus is actually pretty good.
The GPU is old (and wasnt special then) and is outclassed by similarly priced cards like the 7770.
Sound card is pointless, onboard is sufficient and the money can be spent better elsewhere.
Dont know about that case, so wont comment.
PSU is likely to be of low quality, and the wattage is a bit small.
Optical doesnt really matter.

Peripherals I dont know.

Whats your budget? Chances are you could build a better system for your cash.

The power supply looks very suspect to me; stick to well known and quality brands. 400W is on the low side for that system, I would rather go for a 500W unit. I'm also not fond of Biostar boards but then I have no experience with them.

So where can you buy components, I assume Flipkart?
If so, then how many INR can you spend?

Wow, this is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. Started speccing out the core of a gaming rig and that alone was the budget for the tower. Had to re-configure it, not used to this pricing and currency.

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120. Rs. 7197
http://www.flipkart.com/intel-3-3-ghz-fclga1155-core-i3...

Mobo: AsRock Z77 Pro4. Rs. 8640

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB 1600Mhz CL9 1.5v. Rs. 3190

PSU: Corsair Builder series 500W. Rs. 3933

GPU: Sapphire HD7770. Rs. 10058

Case: Coolermaster Elite 431+. Rs. 3780

Total: RS. 36618

If you want a proper 1920x1080 monitor, you will have to increase your budget. Cant find any that will fit into the budget.

Good picks there, will be a decent system. Its a shame that a lot of people see prices coming down, so they think they will get an awesome rig for pennies. Truth is if you want high end gear it still costs a decent amount.

Wouldnt go with that CPU.

Only realized after I specced it out that I didnt include a HDD, which is going to be needed. So to fit one in the rig will have to be shuffled a bit.

Change the CPU to a Phenom II x4 965. Rs. 6784
http://www.flipkart.com/amd-3-4-ghz-am3-phenom-ii-965-p...

motherboard to this AsRock 970 Extreme3. Rs. 6464
http://www.flipkart.com/asrock-970-extreme3-motherboard...

And include the HDD to this Seagate 500GB. Rs. 3701
http://www.flipkart.com/seagate-barracuda-500-gb-deskto...

New Total: Rs. 37910

Then you will have to go back up to the Intel chip. Not worth buying a lower end Phenom or low-end Bulldozer.

Sorry that the price just keeps seeming to rise.

Much as I hate to say this, that pre-built might be a better option than custom in this case.

Flipkart doesnt seem to offer any prebuilt computers unless you count All-In-ones (none of them are worth it).
