So finally time has come to ask your suggestions for my own gaming rig. I am gonna buy it next month after my board exams ;-). I will take 50k from my father and by selling my xbox for 9k my budget come to 60-62k max.
I am gonna play pretty much everything like fc3, bf3, crysis3, nfs mw2 etc. And I want to do comp sc btech. So here is what I have thought
Philips 21.5 fhd led- 8.2k
Cm mouse- 1.2k
Razer goliathus mouse pad- 0.6k
Philips speakers- 3k
Logitech keyboard 0.5k
Now that leaves a budget of around 47-50k for core components and 50k is really my max.
So I atleast want a hd 7850 1gb, anything more you are able to fit will be appreciated ;)
A 500gb/ 1tb hdd
4-8gb ram
an ssd if you could ( I have chosen kingston v300 128gb for 6k)
B75 mobo (for ssd mainly else could go for h61)
At least i3
And a basic cabinet like cm 311 ( will add a couple of fans for 0.6k 1200mm ones)
Seasonic 650w- 4k
And Thanks for reading such a long post ;)

Now you have to decide whether you want an SSD for a boot drive or not.An Intel 335 240GB comes for 10500.

But for a sensible config without an SSD here it goes:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k -13500
Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Pro 4 -7500
GPU: Sapphire HD7870 2 GB Vapour-X -16500
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4GB 1600MHz -1500
PSU: Corsair GS500 -3500
HDD: WD Black 1 TB -5500
Cabinet: NZXT Source 210 Elite -2900
DVD-RW: Asus 24B5ST -1000
TOTAL:51900.

Is corsair gs series reliable?? And for z77 mobo I really like msi z77ma- g45, its got sli for 8k.
Can you tell me where can I buy i5 3570k and hd 7870 for that cheap ( I live in Delhi) but still its like pushing my budget because without a decent cooler I wont be able to overclock much ( can I like go for more than 4.2ghz?) so I was thinking of i5 3470 for 11k and overclock it to 4ghz on stock cooler. Now thats the prob. If I go for b75 and save 4k + gtx 660(pref over 7850) I just might fit that ssd :) but then my i5 loses 400mhz clock speed. And I was thinking of corsair xms3 4gb*2 for 2.8k, nice too have some overhead. But still your build was excellent but I couldnt find i5 3570k and 7870 for that cheap ( on flipkart they are > 5k dearer)

And which is better nzxt source or bitfenix alpha??

+1 more thing shoud I buy a ups or everything will be safe with a good psu? Light at my house hardly goes

I am using GS600 PSU right now.The prices provided are Hyderabad local prices given by Mr.Raghu of Arun Computers,CTC,Secunderabad(cell no.9849457428). GTX660 comes for 14.5k and MSI Z77MA-G45 specifications are
- 2 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots
- PCI_E1 supports up to PCIe 3.0 x16 speed
- PCI_E3 supports up to PCIe 3.0 x8 speed


Asrock Z77 Pro4 Specifications are
- 1 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (PCIE2: x16 mode)
- 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot (PCIE3: x4 mode)

You decide for yourself.Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz single stick is sold for even 2800 also.It depends on bargaining capability.
As for the cabinet NZXT Source 210 Elite is much better in terms of flow of air within the cabinet.

Single channe vs dual channel? I think dual wins every time.
8gbps of bandwidth is needed for modern gpu's, so I was right asrock mobo cannot sli/cf
I thought gtx660 was cheaper than 7870
Anyways I really appreciate your help :)

And sorry I confused gs series for vs. Yup I know gs was one of the best vfm just never saw one online:-D

1st of all, if you are planning for Asrock, then their Extreme series, starting from Extreme 4 Z77 is the minimum to get for an Intel K series Processor. Their Pro series has poor build quality and lots of VRM (Voltage regulation Module) related issues.

Here is my suggestion for 50K Core Components:-

AMD FX 8350 (8 Core, 4 GHz with 4.2 GHz Turbo Core, 8 MB L2 + 8 MB L3) @ 12K
Asus M5A97 Evo @ 7K
Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz CL10 8GB X 1 @ 3.2K
Toshiba/WD Caviar Blue 500 GB SATA 6 Gbps @ 3K
NZXT Soruce 210 Elite Cabinet with front USB 3.0 @ 2.6K
Seasonic Eco 600 600W 80+ Bronze PSU @ 4.35K (Flipkart price)
Sapphire HD 7950 VAPOR-X OC with Boost @ 22K (Kolkata, Vedant Computer)
Asus 24X Black DVD R/W @ 1K

Total is around 55.5K

It will only help you when you have a Multi-GPU setup. It does not add up anything in single GPU environment.

With fx8350, you get an awesome mobo at a low price. Also its 16mb cache is very useful for other purposes. And it can also be overlooked easily with desktop utilities even on the stock cooler.
Surely it cannot beat a i5-3750k in gaming, but we cannot expect to lag behind i5 too.

AMD FX is nearly equivalent to Core i5 in terms of Gaming and multi-threaded applications. In future, games are going to utilize more cores so AMD is your best bet.

Yesterday i saw amd fx 8320 for sale on flipkart :)
So fx 8320 vs i5@4ghz which one is better?
They will cost the same to me as with fx I am gonna get cm hyper 212 evo and i5 would be on stock cooler :)
Till now my core components are
intel:
hd7870/ gtx 660
i5 3470 (oc to 4 ghz)
msi z77ma g45 mobo
nzxt source elite 210
seasonic eco 600 (might cf or sli in the future)
corsair xms3 4gbx2

amd:
fx 8320
cm hyper 212 evo
MSI 970A-G46
rest will be the same
and iwill buy ssd later

now i need to decide:
1) Graphic card as I will be playing some old games and I dont want screen tearing, so does nvidia adaptive vsync work? Does virtu vsync do the same job? Is triple buffering for amd easy? any first hnd experience will be appreciated
2) i5 3470 vs fx 8320
3) Should i buy ups?
4) Is there any site which can help me in game setting? Is geforce experience my only solution?
5) Which monitor to get after all the dont depend on 'specs'
I will be buying from wazirpur market as it is quite near to my house :) any recommended shops?
Thanks once again

1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run? (Stupid answers like 'gaming' or 'office work' will not work. Be exact. Which games? Which applications? Avoid the word 'et cetera.')
Ans:gaming, some novice photoshopping, might try sony vistas now after buying this
2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then mention this too.
Ans:60k including peripherals

3. Planning to overclock?
Ans: If in budget, why the hell not?

4. Which Operating System are you planning to use?
Ans: Windows 7/8

5. How much hard drive space is needed?
Ans: Atleast 500gb, without games I am using more than 200gb on my lappy

6. Do you want to buy a monitor? If yes, please mention which screen size and resolution do you want. If you already have a monitor and want to reuse it, again mention the size and resolution of monitor you have.
Ans: Yes,1080p

7. Which components you DON'T want to buy or which components you already have and plan on reusing?
Ans: None have to start from scratch

8. When are you planning to buy the system?
Ans: Wazirpur, delhi or online with cod

9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?
Ans:Might try with your help ofcourse ;)

10. Where do you live? Are you buying locally? Are you open to buying stuff from online shops if you don't get locally?
Ans: Delhi, open to buy from any reputed seller

11. Anything else which you would like to say?
Ans: Prices of games on XBOx suck!!!

>Absolutely wrong! i5's stock cooler is not that good, however, fx 8320's stock cooler is good even for moderate overclocking. So what you are thinking is totally wrong. You should get the evo with i5 while fx 8320 can go with the stock cooler, however, if you can afford, then take the evo even with the fx 8320.

> why are you getting
My suggestion:

fx 8320 (12000)
MSI 970A-G46 (5900)
WD blue 1 TB HDD (4000)
Dell ST2220L 22" (8600)
nzxt source elite 210 (3000)
Sapphire HD7870 (17000)
Logitech MK200 (700)
Corsair GS600 (4600)
G.Skill ripjawsx 4 GB 1600 MHz x2 (1700x2)

total: 59200

The thing is buddy i5-3470 can only be overclocked to 4ghz with multipliers and I am not going to adjust bclk.
So I know it can be overclocked that much on stock cooler and heatsink, now with amd I am gonna overclock to 4.5ghz with evo

So will piledrivers lackluster single threaded performance will be able to overcome ivy bridge with 500mhz of extra frequency? As they both cost the same

Uggh! All this would have been solved only if amd had released fx 6300 in india! Shame onvyou amd, trying to cheat us despite being an underdog
Then my specs could have been:
Amd fx 6300 + powercolor 7870 le myst edition ( hd 7930 if amd would have used proper conventional naming)

i5 3470 can't be overclocked, it is limited to irs max turbo speed, 3.6 GHz.
FX 8350 has street price lesser than 12K everywhere apart from Flipkart. In Multithreaded apps, FX-8350 is already ahead of i5 3570K at stock speed and games are already multithreaded now. Far Cry 3 and Crysis 3 are two multithreaded titles and in Crysis 3, FX-8350 performs almost similarly to i7 3770K, beating both i5 3470 and i5 3570K.

Man you have so many posts and that much knowledge really? I really like amd, my amd athlon 64 was a great cpu at that time but now here you are just talking bullshit. Anything above i3 can be overclocked. You get 4 bins above max turbo speed on every i5. So turbo speed of 3470 is 3.6 ghz + 4*100mhz= 4ghz, further using bclk you can easily reach 4.2ghz.
Even amd does not compare fx 8350 with i5 3570k. Officially its a contender of 3470.
Right now problem with amd is power. They already take so much power that overclocking them drains any efficiency whatsoever. And 8350= 8320, as they both are unlocked and I dont think amd is binning chips like 8120 and 8150. If

And about games fc3 is hardly taxing and only bf3 multiplayer supports 4 cores so your reasons for multithreading are invalid and in games i5=i7 as they cant utilize ht cores likewise i3= pentium 2120. I too like amd but lets just admit it bullcraper just tarnished their image. Imo even steamroller can catch i7 with 15% of promised performance. The only chips I like from amd right now fx 6300 for vfm and fx 8320 bcos its like unloked 6950. Same performance as fx 8350 while being cheaper.

Man, it looks like your knowledge is also proportional with your post count :). The overclocking you are talking about is a Turbo Boost overclocking, not a real overclock. If you increase the multiplier by 4, then the following will happen:-

1. Under the maximum CPU load, the speed will go to maximum of 4 GHz.
2. 4 GHz can only be achieved only iff 2 Cores are in use, not all the 4 Cores.
3. 3.8 GHz is the maximum level you can reach with all the 4 Cores with i5 3470K.
4. You need a Z77/Z68/P67 Motherboard for it.

I hope you know what is the difference between Turbo Boost speed bump and a stable O.C.

Regarding performance, just check some reviews and benchmark scores of FX-8350 and i5 3470, especially the new games like Crysis 3 instead of deciding AMD pitted it against which Intel counter part and you will be enlightened for sure. Start reading....

Man you have so many posts and that much knowledge really? I really like amd, my amd athlon 64 was a great cpu at that time but now here you are just talking bullshit.

Next time, stop personal attacking...if any body has posted a wrong information, you can easily point that out instead of start insulting him. From your knowledge, it looks like you have just browsed couple of threads like Overclock.net forum and started shouting like a mad dog...I KNOW EVERYTHING, well you don't. Next time be careful with your language for avoiding actions against you.

Also, I am requesting to other members, not to suggest anything here unless this guy feel up the PC Building template: http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/pc-...new-pc-help-answer-these-questions-first.html

I answered those questions. And sorry for that personal comment :p
It was just that I was trying to reply from my mobile and site's formatting is horibbly wrong and then I lost my temper :oops:
Well I had an earlier account but lets just say I lost it.
I knew that turbo boost ws for 2 cores only at 4ghz but thats same with every intel cpu and I just didnt want to make my post unnecesary lenghty.
Although I am following hardware only since sandy bridge/ phenom ii. Come on I am only 18 ;)
As for the comparison between fx8350 and i5 just check tomshardware. Their charts showed horrible energy consumption against sb/ib. The thing is all the energy will be converted to heat and I dont have lots to spare for cooling and overclocking. The difference between i5 3470 and i5 3570k is measy 2k but add to that a cost of cooler and i just overblown my budget.
Again sorry for my resonse I am feeling guilty now.
But all said and done I still only like fx 6300 & fx 8320.
fx 8320 might come under 10k next month, I will be going with that else its intel for me. You might check
Results: Far Cry 3 : Gaming Shoot-Out: 18 CPUs And APUs Under $200, Benchmarked
for fc3 performance and just read the last page of relative performance, at stock fx is even beaten by i3.
It took games 5 years to become threaded for 4 cores, and it might as well take another 5 for becoming octo threaded ( but I highly doubt that, till today skyrim and bf3 are only aaa games using quads).
And I wasnt wrong, stable oc fr 3470 with the msi board I am planning to use is aroung 4.2ghz. Now I dont think I will overclock it above 4ghz for cooling reasons and adding efficiency takes me towards intel's side.
