for case get betfenix merc alpha or cooler master elite 311.

He specifically asked for usb 3 cabinets! Elite 311 does not have any usb 3 ports. Merc alpha usb 3 one cost 3.5k
for 2.5k, V1 is teh best choice.

^^ Don't post same config in each and every thread. And why are you suggesting Ivy Bridge Processors everywhere where Haswell Processors are available at the same price range with slight better performance and better upgrade option in future?

for psu, get antec vp450p/seasonic s12 ii 520.
for ups, apc 600va should be fine.

thank you Rijin.
I'm actually looking for a cabinet with USB3 front ports.
Bitfenix usb3 version is out of my budget.
Antec V1 is the one fits under my budget.

for UPS, is there any other brand which I can look for ?

If you are not overclocking then you can go with these instead:

Intel i5 3450 -11800,
Gigabyte H77M-D3H -6600,
Zotac GTX650 Ti Boost 2GB -13500,
Corsair Vengeance 4GB 1600MHz -2600,
WD Blue 1TB -4200,
Asus 24B5ST DVD-RW -1100,
Antec V1 (White)-2700,
Dell S2240L -8900,
Seasonic SII420 -3600,
Logitech Z313 2.1 speakers -2200,
APC 800VA or 1.1KVA -5500.
TOTAL -60360.


Come on Bro.. being an AMD user, you are recommending an Intel rig. I must rethink the options, I guess.
btw, do you think 420W PSU will be enough to drive this set-up ?

finally bought the following items..

Intel i5 4440 --------- 10980
Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H --------- 5376
Kingston HyperX 4GB 1600Mhz --------- 2600
Western Digital Blue 1TB --------- 3543

Antec VP450P --------- 2358
Logitech Keyboard --------- 0
Logitech Mouse --------- 0
Edifier M1380 --------- 2100

Antec gx400 is beyond my budget.

Harshil,

Any reason why K281 isn't good ?


I didn't like the design of it..

Poor cable management functionalities. It's not worth the price.

thanks Harshil..
I am planning to go for Merc Alpha.

I bought that last month from snapdeal. They had some 5% off..
But, you missed a great chance.. Snapdeal was having 10% cash back for citibank credit cards, which expired last Sunday.
you would've got it for 8145 (9050 - 10% (905)). Even I should've waited..
:cry:
