My friend wants a new computer. He is pure gamer. We both live in India and want Amazon to ship to India (They do).
So help us.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Anytime this year


USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Of course gaming

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: ??Suggest??

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Amazon.com

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: India

PARTS PREFERENCES: Graphics Card

OVERCLOCKING: Yes

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Need New PSU, GPU, CPU and motherboard. Want it to be less costly because they will take shipping charges to ship to India, which will be high. And teach me about rebates, I have no idea about rebates.



***MY BUDGET***
Rebate accepted if rebates are good thing. Should be less than the prices listed below.

GPU = $300

CPU = $205

PSU = Any good PSU of 600w (Corsair preferred)

Motherboard = $112 (AsRock preferred)


***MY CHOICE***

i5 3470

MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Twin Frozr III
OR
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 660 Ti WINDFORCE 2X OC Edition

Corsair CMPSU-600CXV2UK 600 Watts PSU

ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP Motherboard

I dont think there will be a huge difference if you order the same through flipkart... Plus if you buy through flipkart, you will get all the components within 3-4 days....
Also there is the warranty factor you need to consider if you buy from Amazon as some of the components may not have an international warranty...
Anyways its just my opinion, if you are getting cheaper at amazon, just go for it...

A better choice would be 7950 and i5 3570K.

The 7950 is a faster GPU at a similar price (probably cheaper) and the 3570K can be overclocked while the 3470 can not.

Hmm.. My friend is more towards nvidia.

GTX 660 Twin Frozr III OC is better than gtx 660ti stock. So, I guess its good enough.
Please provide me the link to the amazon for hd 7950
