Budget Gaming Rig

Hi friends, my name is Swapnil Tiwari I am an Indian and reside in New Delhi, India. This is my first time building a PC(from scratch). My primary objective is to play latest games i.e. ME3,MP3,BL2,COD:BL2,AC3,FC3,Dishonored etc. at 1920x1080 resolution on very high(if not ultra) settings at 40+ FPS. Hardware prices here in India are substantially higher than USA and other western nations and due to budgetary constraints I have to make my PC in under rs100,000($1,863). I have finalized all the parts and will start buying them in 1 week and will start building in 1-2 weeks. The list of components is below :


Component Name Price(in Rs) Price(in $)

Motherboard : ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard 10,500 196
Processor : Intel 3.4 GHz LGA 1155 Core i5 3570K Processor 15,000 280
Graphic Card : ZOTAC NVIDIA GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition 2GB 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card 14,000 260
RAM : G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL) 3,500 65
Cabinet : Cooler Master HAF 912 Advanced Mid Tower Cabinet 8,000 149
PSU : Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1000W 1000 Watts PSU 13,000 242

SSD : OCZ Agility 3 60 GB SSD Internal Hard Drive (AGT3-25SAT3-60G) 4,000 75
Monitor : BenQ 24 inch LED - GL2450HM Monitor 12,000 224
CPU Cooler : Deepcool Assassin 6,000 112
Optical Drive : HP dvd1260i DVD Burner Internal Optical Drive 1,500 28
Keyboard and Mouse : Microsoft Desktop 2000 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo 2,000 37
Speakers : iball Raaga 2.1(an Indian Brand) 1,200 22
Headphones : Sennheiser HD 201 Headphone 2,000 37

Total Price : 97,500 1,811


Operating System would be Windows 7 Ultimate(I'm not a fan of Windows 8).

If you think my configuration is good enough for my needs, please let me know and if you think some improvements could be made by replacing some parts for others, please suggest me and yeah if you have to suggest please keep the price difference in mind as anything you suggest would be at least 30% more expensive here in India. Thank You all and waiting for your replies.

Important Note : I am only interested in Intel Processors and Nvidia Graphic Cards, so please try not to suggest AMD CPUs and GPUs.

Once again, thank you all !! and sorry for my bad English.

  1. That PSU is WAY overkill for that build!! A good 650w-750w PSU would be MORE than enough power for that system. You could find a 750W Corsair PSU for half that price, and the money you saved could be put into a better video card (Get the 660TI instead, it's MUCH better than the 650Ti, not even in the same class) even a 750w PSU will be more than enough for GTX 660TI SLI, so it still would be just as futureproof/upgradeable.. There is absolutely NO REASON to get that power supply, it would be a complete waste of money...
  2. Thanks a lot !! I was trying to fit in a Asus 660ti in that budget. I would buy a 750W PSU and fit in a asus 660ti. Yeah !!

    Nice! Just make sure you get a Corsair or Seasonic 750w (or any other reputible brand) NOT A COOLERMASTER PSU (unless Russian roulette is your favorite hobby....)

    I will admit they are a lot better than cooler master, but still not as good as Corsair.. Here are a couple links to Corsair PSUs that are better than the one you listed, and for about the same price.. They seem to be sold out at the moment, but this is just to prove my point... A single +12v rail is always better than multiple.
