http://www.theitdepot.com/details-LITE-ON+24X+Internal+Sata+DVD+Writer+-+OEM+(iHAS124-04)_C8P14181.html

Now I have 3 questions :

1. I can save around Rs. 5,000($92) by choosing AMD 8320 CPU + ASRock 970 Extreme3 Mobo. Should I do this ? I have always used and preferred Intel CPUs.

2. Is the PSU enough ? The graphic card requires at least 450W but I always like to keep 100+Watts Extra.

3. Is the CPU Cooler any good ? Hyper 212 Evo is actually out of budget bcause hardware here in India is horribly overpriced.


Any Suggestion is welcome. Waiting for replies !

  1. That looks good to me, I know hardware is really expensive in India but I can't believe the 212 Evo would be that out of the price range. I'd stick with Intel if the primary use is gaming.
