ASRock B75M-GL - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Intel i5 3330 - http://ark.intel.com/products/65509/Intel-Core-i5-3330-...
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 - http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt...
Corsair vs550 550w psu - http://www.corsair.com/us/power-supply-units/vs-series-...

Ideally look at motherboards with B75 or H77 chipsets

and then give LINKS

Can you suggest me a mobo with the mentioned chipset at the same price point? What would be the advantages of a b75/h77 chipset mobo over a h61 chipset mobo? Does it matter much? Because I am on a really tight budget


My apologies, I typed the post using a PS3. Now I have a laptop, will update the op with links soon. :)

Make sure all of them available in your area.

Your motherboard:
-Not support for DDR3 1600 MHz
-No USB 3.0 port
-Too expensive....

U should go for Asrock mobo like this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
and go for Intel Core i5 3570 or 3570K
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

Thanks. But both the items are out of my budget.

I am going for this instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Not changing the processor, I think the current one would be fine :??:
