Need help on a new system

I am putting together a new system which I want to use for general stuff as well as PC gaming. Not very hardcore stuff, but say Diablo III etc. I live in India, and prices here may be a bit higher than the US. I am looking to keep it to $600 - $700 for the CPU, GPU, Motherboard, RAM, Power supply. I will connect it to a 24" Full HD screen. Here's what I am thinking


Intel Corei5 3450
Intel Mother Board DH77EB
1 X 8GB RAM DDR3
2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 630
Corsair VX450 Smps


Is this system ok? Am I making a big mistake? What is the weak link in this?

Thanks for your help

  2. Please give your budget in Indian Rupees.
    Also consider adding a SSD to the build if possible.

    Since you live in India, please check prices on flipkart.com.
    If you live near Mumbai buy from Lamington road.
  3. Thanks. I am using flipkart and some local vendors. Availability and prices in India are different from the US sites, hence budget etc. is difficult to reconcile with most builds / components available in the US.

    I want to get the GTX 650Ti, but I have no money for that right now. I want a basic GPU right now, which can help me play Diablo III with decent settings, and upgrade the GPU later.

    What's the advantage of putting in a SSD?

    Also, please advise if a 450W SMPS is enough?
