^^the rig @cilus suggested is better for gaming.in my opinion buy A10 only if you don't plan on buying a graphics card.

Yes exactly....

i say trinity from my side... why??

1. better processor for the softwares you use
2. gpu good enough for gaminng at that resolution

but if you decide on g645 or sth like that then you will be sacrificing processing power which is important for those softwares And all this just for a bit better gaming

intel pentium G645 is a dual core processor based on same architecture as core i 2xxx processors.it is faster than any core2duo & amd dual core athlon/phenom.

you missed big thing.corsair cx 430w psu - 2.5 k

I suggest get h61 d2h mobo at 3k as you will save 1k.b75 has usb 3 feature while d2h has usb 2 that's it.

thanks for the reply guys...:thumbs:
when it comes to processing power....which is better ....? 5800k or g645...?
as i said i want to run CATIA ,PRO-E in near future...so i want to be sure....

i am leaning towards 5800k as it is quad core....:confused:

so i have decided on two things
ram-4gb corsair value @1.3k
hdd-tosihba @7200rpm @4.1k

still confused...
cpu and psu and respective mobo...?

and does 5800k support crossfire...?

what about g645+hd 6670 1gb gddr5....? it will suite my budget along with the psu...what do you think guys....?

For softwares a10 is much more capable (almost equivalent to i3)

so get it eyes closed

for mobo and psu, i have already suggested...

get this:

Intel i3 3220 - rs 7000
Gigabyte h61 d2h or s2p - rs 3000
Wd or tosiba 1tb hd - rs 4100
Sapphire hd 6670 1gb ddr5 - rs 5400
Corsair\g skill\transend 4gb ddr3 - rs 1200

Total - rs 20,700

Believe me this is best for your needs

with hd 6670 ddr5 you will able to play games at med-high settings(with AA and vsync to off)but mostly on high settings at 720res

It BEATS A10 5800k in all aspects

i3 has hyper threating means it will act like quad core and speed up multitasking and also hd 6670 is faster than apu hd 7660d

hd 6670 ddr5 > hd 7660d

Add to that a cabby (1k) and smps (2k).....

i think it will go off budget but if op can manage then this is better....

a10 is much better in terms of cpu ( phenom II is better too..)
also igp is better than 6670
