why certainly my good man!

firstly, we'll need more information....

do you have a monitor? if so, what resolution is it?

do you have a copy of windows already?

do you have anything you can reuse from an old rig?

do you have any brand preference? (AMD/intel, Nvidia/AMD, etc.)

do you plan to overclock at all?

things of this nature.

ery solid build but instead of an xfx 7870 ghz edition you can get a sapphire hd 7870 ghz edition cheaper http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Oh sorry..
Yeah, I need a new monitor, the current one is old and too small. As for windows, yeah, a friend has a copy of windows 7(I hate win8)..As for brand preference, no, I don't have any..and one last thing, I live in India, so other than Amazon, I'm not sure which other sites do international shipping..

And no overclocking...don't want to take the risk of messing it up..

Thanks :)

Amazon is a good choice. I suggest samsung/asus for your minutes and get a 21.5" or 23".
