Gaming/Render PC

This is PC a good build? I'm gonna do intensive 3D rendering in Blender, video editing and play games like Crysis 3.

Intel core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge
Asus P8Z77-M Pro
Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2 GB GDDR5
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz 4GB RAM
Cooler Master Thunder 500W Power Supply
Lian Li lancool PC-k57 USB 3.0 Cabinet
Windows 8 single language
Western Digital WD 500GB Caviar Blue 7200RPM / Seagate 1TB ST31000524AS

I'd really love to get the K version but it is 80 dollars more. Also, I live in India where the GTX 660 is 300 dollars.
Any suggestions of improvements for this build?

  1. I am assuming you already have the hard drives? If not, dump one of them for an SSD.
  2. No, I dont. Where I live the E3-1230V2 is 20 dollars more than at what I'm getting the i7-3770.

    I'm not getting both of the HDD, I'll be getting one of the 2. I considered getting an SSD, but an SSD should accompany an HDD and I cant get both!

    I converted my PC's Price in INR to USD and it is 1280 USD! Anyone care to tell me what I'd be able to get if I were an american citizen? Just curious!
  3. Is there any limiting factors in why you must choose between these 2 drives, I don't like either one of them. The WD Blue is not big enough, and the Seagate has a pretty high failure rate. Not bad drives mind you, just would rather have something else.
  4. Nope, no limiting factors. I just found these 2 drives and heck, I chose them! I also considered a 2 TB caviar green, dont know if it can actually beat these drives.
    What HDD would you suggest with this PC? :D
  5. max budget. country of origin. need os+mousse+key+monitor?
  6. Stretching the Budget I can go for max 70,000 INR. Divide it by 50 for USD. I'm in India and I have to say, heck the duties here are Bad! :O

    I'm getting Windows 8 OS (I'm a Tech Savvy person) I'm geting a Logitech G100 combo for the Mouse + Keyboard for 1800 Rupees. As for the Monitor, I'm getting a BenQ 24 inch for around 9,000, good price according to me.

  8. Wow, I made the above PC in the thread for Rs 64k and the one you made is Rs 80k :P
    This is so too expensive. But gee, thanks! Hopefully I'll be able to salvage something :D
    But there is a reason I'm getting i7-3770, as I'll be doing Rendering as well! All I'm asking for is do all those specs merge to form a better PC. I want no bottleneck and I'm not the best at this so I'm looking for suggestions; room for improvement, I'll order it myself as I'm an expert at looking for rock bottom prices! :D
  9. its 69999 roopees actually.
  10. and u overclocked u wont see a difference with the 3770 compared to the 3570k. also the program needs to be optimized for ht or else u might get negative performance or no performance increase at all

  12. well flipkart is one of the only decent ones i know for india.

    I know flipkart is probably the most popular online website for pc hardware in India but its not that reliable and there is limited choice for parts. I read somewhere that they sometimes sell refurbished products. Don't know if that's true. I personally got two faulty stuff from flipkart, a cheap gaming controller (which was not reliable anyway) and a microsoft wireless mouse (which i think should be of decent build quality). But lots of people i know have got stuff from them and did not have any problems. The thing about price is true though. I found that pc hardware is more cheaper in local retail stores where i live.There is itdepot.com but i don't know anything about them.
  14. i really dont know other places to recommand.

    its another country far away, so i couldnt speak of locally.

    You have'nt heard of any other places probably because there is none :) ( atleast i have'nt heard of one and i'm from India) .. buying from local stores depends on where the op lives..
  16. yes well u actually live in india. seems ur more deplaced to help :P

    Getting this rig in India will cost about 90,000. That's well over his budget.
  27. exactly ;)

    thanks for precising that nix

    Prices in India are like 1.3- 1.5 times the price in US. Which means a 1,000$ rig in US is like 1,300 to 1,500$ in India.
  29. thats what i was saying, but burrito dint seem to understand that, ud know more than anyone ur from india! :P
  30. Just a thought, how much are customs? One option might be having someone ship it to you from a country that doesn't have such a premium on computer parts.
  31. i dunno. but shipping cost would be high, im pretty shur of that. + custom fees.
  32. i think shipping, import taxes and duties would add up to a high cost like iceclock said.
  33. i guess local or klipart is the best
  34. Oh, how much I envy the price of hardware in the US, all that hardware just for 60k T_T
    The duties in India are mad, if you buy a car and import it to india the duties are gonna be 150% that means a 20,000 dollars car will be 50k in India. INSANE

    I've looked at ebay and flipkart, and I live in the capital, so I'll get a decent discount!

    Hell, that 7970 for 379 dollars, my GTX 660 is costing me 300 dollars!
  35. well the build i made u atleast is solid overall.

    u can always upgrade the gpu later on, 650ti is quite good for rendering.
  36. Yeah, your build is solid, I have one question, I'm getting this cabinet:
    NZXT Crafted Series Guardian 921 RB USB 3.0
    http://www.ebay.in/itm/NZXT-Crafted-Series-Guardian-921-RB-USB-3-0-/261086966804?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash=item3cc9fef414#ht_3255wt_906

    It is written to be a USB 3.0 cabinet but I cant find it elsewhere to be USB 3.0, is it really USB 3.0 or a ***?

    Also, Is the power supply Ice sent good enough (Seasonic 520 Watt) if I want an SLI, can it handle it? I'll be getting the GTX 660 and later would like to SLI it.
  37. it has usb 2.0 only

    if u want sli ull want 650-700watts.
