Get HD4890 instead of HD5770. I heard that HD5770 is not VFM esp at such a higher price. So a HD4890 would be fine..

The PSU should be for 3.5k. Make sure its the Real Power Pro. It is a great PSU and can handle that rig easily. which brand ram? 2x2GB Kingston is 4.8k in Mumbai. Try to bargain further. The mobo will be great for any gfx card.

Hey great choice...

Would suggest..

1. See if you can get a 500-550W PSU. You will be better future scaled.
2. The HD5xxx cards are too overpriced. A HD4890 would suffice better.
3. The UPS price you mentioned, is a shade on the higher side. See if you can bargain it down rs400. But this could depend on your city.

Rest you are good to go man. Enjoy gaming/movies at full HD.

If not the Real Power Pro 460W, I would recommend the GlacialPower 650AA. 88-92% efficiency at 4.5k only!

You need a Monitor too??

AMD Athlon II X2 240 @ 3.2k
Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 @ 3k
1GB DDR2 RAM @ 2k
Seagate 250GB HDD @ 2k
Samsung/LG DVD writer @ 1.2k
Cabbinet with inbuilt SMPS @ 1.2k
Cheap Speakers(frontech) @ 350/-
Microsoft KB+Mouse @ 700/-

That rounds up @ ~14k, I can't fit Monitors in, a numeric UPS gonna cost 1.5k.
If you need a monitor then a CRTs(LG) gonna cost you about 5k, a 17" LCD(LG) will cost 6k appx.

If you are stuck on an i7 rig..you might need to increase your budget...roughly the figures would be. Not getting into specifics.

i7 - 14K
X58 Motherboard - 10K
2x3GB (6GB) High Speed RAM - 9K
500W PSU - 5.5K
HD4890 - 12K
19" Monitor - 6K
1TB HDD - 5K
OEM HSF - 2.5K
DVD RW - 2K
---------------------------------------------------
66K

If others can suggest better stuff....else you would need to extend budget, or compromise on the GPU/RAM/HDD/OEM HSF (Use stock). I think the cheapest i7 motherboard will be 9K ...lowest..

Hi Guys Just Checked On lamington Road Following Price for i7 Rig..

i7 + Gigabyte
GA-EX58-UD3R-SLI Motherboard 28000
2x3GB (6GB) GSKill RAM (2000 FSB) 6000
Cool Master :500W PSU 2600
Graphics Cars Nvidea 9600 GT 4000
19" Monitor 6000
1TB HDD 4000
Cabinet 1200
DVD RW 1200
Total 53K

Can some body Let me know hows the Deal? i am only getting this Gskill ram from Mostly all vendors whose shops on laminton road?(besides itwares site). If I take Intel Mother board the price will reduce by 4000 RS. Please suggest me if i shuld gofor this config .. pLease suggest additions or deletions from the config... I am buying this Sat (22nd nov)...:!:

Why r u buying a aged and weak 9600 GT with Core i7 platform? its all wrong, believe me. Core i7 price is 14k alone, so go for the Motherboard from MSI @ 10k. It will save u 4k. Go for at least radeon HD 4890 or Nvidia GTX 260 Core 216. Price will be 12k/10k respectively. Also go for atleast 22" monitor if you really want to see the performance difference in games.
If you can go without the Gfx card for few days, then wait for few days for DirectX 11 cards to be mainstream.

@Shadpow:

Good that you are doing research for your new rig. If you could answer the following..it would be great. Better to change some variables to constants, and then we all can move forward.

1. Will you OC the system.
2. What is your final budget limit. (You can stretch to this point)
3. What is your ideal/comfortable budget. (You would prefer the purchase in this amount)
4. Will you game a lot.
5. What screen size you want.
6. You open to an AMD platform. (Please feel free to make your choice here)

(5) is really important, cause this will decide the GPU, which leads to the PSU. Else we all will keep going in circles.

Tell us all this, and we can help.

Hi asigh,
Thnks for the Quick Reply,ans to you Questions:

1. Will you OC the system.: yes i will
2. What is your final budget limit.As pointed out by @Cilus I can wait certainly for a couple of mnths for Graphics Card. So 55k excluding Graphics Card wud be fine with me.
3. What is your ideal/comfortable budget. (You would prefer the purchase in this amount). With Graphics Card: 55K
4. Will you game a lot: Upto an extent yes.. however I am bsy enough with a lot wrk so at leat for nxt 3-4mnth not much, but later I will certainly use the system for GAMES.. and as @Cilus suggested I can wait for Graphics cards with DX-11 (if comes out in nxt 5-6 mnths which i am sure will)
5. What screen size you want: @Cilus confused me a little bit with 22'. Well i am comfortable with 19' and a bit skeptical abt 22"
6. You open to an AMD platform. (Please feel free to make your choice here). Well many of friends have bad experience when it comes to AMD (No personal grudge) and i went a few of reviews on Digit Magzine Sept-09 and looking at those bench marks.. I am being skeptical to choose AMD.

You have no gfx card right now? Is that so? Then how come you use your system until you get a DX11 gfx card, when there is no IGP in X58 mobos????
