  1. No need for an i7 on a gaming rig, get an i5-3570K instead: http://www.flipkart.com/intel-3-4-ghz-lga-1155-core-i5-3570k-processor/p/itmd99wtgqur9dhm?pid=PSRD99WSTTH4Y88G&ref=7e4e965f-ab41-4e0f-88dc-ee531de26de4

    You don't really need 16GB of RAM or a motherboard that expensive. Get 8GB and this motherboard: http://www.theitdepot.com/details-Gigabyte+GA-Z77M-D3H+32GB+DDR3+Intel+Motherboard_C13P16983.html

    You also don't need BD-R on a PC, if it's games you want don't bother. BD-R gaming on a PC is most likely never going to happen. Everything is moving toward cloud computing and streaming, there's no need for anything else. Even BF3 which takes a good 25GB on a drive doesn't come on a BD-R. It comes on a disc with a downloading online option. BD-R movies on a PC, you have to add playback software, which isn't included in the drives, and that costs an extra ₹ 5430 (USD $100) per license so take that into account.

    As for monitor that's kind of out in the open - a lot of people have their own opinions on monitors - if you have the money it's best to invest in a 1440p setup. But that can get really costly.
  2. What size monitors? 24" or 27" ? 1440 or 1200 or 1080p.?

    Razr makes great mechanical keyboards. Mouse is very personal. Gotta try it in a store to get a feel.
  3. I want atleast 27" and 1440p 120hz
  4. Can anyone tell me why everytime i try to post a new thread or reply to a post then why does it show that toms is unavailable and to try again. So i try again and then find that every thread and post is there.
  5. if you are using opera mini then it happens

    solution/adjustment is that whenever you post a reply it will say "site not available" then visit that page again or press back button and then refresh the page to see your post

    and in case of creating new thread, close that "site not available" tab and revisit that section of the forum to see your thread.

    and your rig :o what is your budget and place ?
  6. Yup, i was using opera mini and about the rig. My budget for everything is Rs 7, 50000 or about 13500$. I live in India
  7. Actually, i won the money in a lottery. I won the eight prize there and now i am thinking of building a new rig!

    And about the budget. I mistakely added a zero. Actually my budget is Rs 75000 for the CPU excluding the graphics card
  13. And what do you all recommend for the Psu
  14. And is cm haf 932 a good case
  15. And is cm haf 932 a good case or should i go for haf 912 or something else

    Keep in mind that the playback software is ridiculously expensive. And it is incredibly picky with displays and doesn't always work.
  19. I already said that i changed my mind about Blu-Ray.
  20. Are Cooler Master Psus good? I heard that they output less than half of the given power.
  21. Are Cooler Master Psus good? I heard that they output less than half of the given power.
  22. Just get a seasonic and call it a day.
  23. Seasonic X-Series 850/1050W is fine.
  24. Are Cooler Master Psus good? I heard that they output less than half of the given power.
  25. Outputting half of the given power is terrible.
  26. Yea, the 750W version of that PSU is fine, even if you decide to SLI later on.
  27. All right then i will get the AX850 and what case should i pick?
  28. Other things have been decided. Now, the only thing left is the case!
  29. NZXT, Cooler Master, Corsair etc. cases are fine.

    Yes that and they repeatedly lie about the components used. I agree with the poster who said just get a Seasonic.

    Depends on how much you want to spend. Here's what I recommend:

    $50 - $75: Antec 300 Illusion, Corsair 200R, Corsair 300R, NZXT Source 210, Cooler Master HAF 912

    $75 - $100: NZXT Phantom 410, Cooler Master HAF 922, Fractal Design Arc MIDI, Antec P280

    $100 - $125: NZXT Phantom original, Corsair 500R, Fractal Design Define R4, Cooler Master HAF XM

    $125 - $150+: Azza Hurrican 2000, NZXT Switch 810, Silverstone RV02B, Corsair Obsidian 550D, Cooler Master Storm Stryker, Lian Li A75, NZXT Phantom 630
  31. All right, i am thinking of the Cooler Master Haf 932 dor Haf 912 but do these cases have good airflow and is it big enough for SLI Asus GTX 680 Direct CUII TOP 2 slot 4 gb which is a very large card.
  32. Currently, i am going for 1 gtx 680 and then i am thinking of putting another one in afterwards for SLI.
  33. Please someone reply and ignore the above above post about Samsung Kies. I posted It elsewhere and It ended up here. Opera Mini really sucks!

    The HAF 912 is smaller than the HAF 922. I'd personally go for the Corsair 500R if I had your budget. It's big and roomy enough that it can handle the biggest video cards, has built in SSD support, and has a removable drive cage if space is your concern.

    What do you need to know about it exactly?
  36. Actually, a person in another thread was asking about where He could get Samsung Kies and so i provided him some links to download it.
