ASRock B75M-GL - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157326
Intel i5 3330 - http://ark.intel.com/products/65509/Intel-Core-i5-3330-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_20-GHz
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 - http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-660
Corsair vs550 550w psu - http://www.corsair.com/us/power-supply-units/vs-series-power-supply-units/vs-seriestm-vs550-550-watt-power-supply.html

More about will setup work
  1. Ideally look at motherboards with B75 or H77 chipsets

    and then give LINKS
  2. 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. :)

    Thanks. I've added links in the op.
  5. 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=N82E16813157302
    and go for Intel Core i5 3570 or 3570K

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