CPU Build Suggestions Required

Hello,

I am planning to build a new CPU. My basic needs are web surfing, watching movies, little gaming and other casual work.
I am from India and my budget is around 300$(15000 INR).
I already have a DVD writer, HDD, monitor, keyboard and a mouse.
I am looking for the components inside the cabinet.


I am confused with the following combinations,
AMD 2.6 GHz A6 3650 Processor or AMD 3 GHz A8 3870K Processor or AMD FX4100 Processor. I do not plan to buy a GPU so would require good inbuilt GPU.

Will this mobo be compatible with this?
Gigabyte A55M-DS2. Is there a better alternative?

Things I have decided.
SMPS Corsair CX430v2.
NZXT Gamma Cabinet.
Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3

The NZXT Cabinet comes with 1 fan, The city where I live is pretty hot and summers are really hot. Temperatures go upto 47ºC. It supports upto 6 fans, should I be using additional fans for extra cooling?


Thanks a lot :) 

Best solution

Acc. to your needs, my suggestion would be AMD A8 3870K (Rs. 6000).
Yes, the Mobo Gigabyte A55M-DS2 (Rs. 2700) is good enough for a budget build, if you don't want to do extreme overclocking.

And, you will be fine with the stock cooler, even with mild overclocking.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion Vinay, I suppose you are from India too, can you help me out about from where should I buy the following items. I am from Chennai and I am comfortable buying online too.

AMD A8 3870 costs 6700 on flipkart and about the same in the shops at Ritchie street, where can I find it at 6000? Also the mobo costs 3400 online and about 3200 in the local stores, where can I find it for 2700?


Thanks again mate :)

These prices are in Nehru Place, New Delhi. However, the A8 3870K is hard to find there. Also, it is out of Stock at Flipkart.
So, it'd be better if you buy from the Local Stores, solely for the sake of After buying service.

One thing more I forgot to add, there's an additional 5% tax on the prices. So, A8 will actually cost you Rs. 6300 & Mobo around Rs. 2800. (At Nehru Place).

So, not much difference in prices.

Pick up anyone, Intex/Sukam/Microtek 725 VA UPS. All are good budget UPS and would cost you around Rs. 1500.
