A 600VA UPS can provide around 10 mins of backup which is enough for saving work and shutting down! 1100VA UPS's are a bit of an overkill for normal home use.

a 650VA UPS can give 10 minute backup only for a highly efficient 450W PSU. you have a 500W or higher PSU, you better have a UPS with higher rating.

If you Overclock much, then the unlocked multiplier of BE(955) helps a bit, otherwise 945 is a better option as 1k price difference between 945 and 955BE is not justified by 200MHz clock difference. Note that 945 has its multiplier locked, whereas 955BE has it unlocked.

The little extra that you pay for the 955BE is well worth it specially considering the OCing fun. But then investment in a 3rd party cooler and good case fans will be extra additions. In any case the 945 OC-es good as well if you buy a decent board and RAM.

^Mobo for OCing is MSI 790GX - GD65 @ 7.2k. Even Gigabyte MA785GMTUD2H @ 5.5k will do well, but MSI is better. For onboard gfx, Gigabyte is better. Its 500GB WD Blue @ 2.5k.

Why do you need the GlacialPower PSU for onboard GFX? Do you plan to add a gfx card later?

Yes, I plan to add an ATI 5xxx or a Nvidia fermi card later.
I think I should go for Gigabyte MA785GMTUD2H @ 5.5k

Thanks, great work!!

and regarding th cm elite 335. it comes with only 1 fan at the back. how many more fans should i install to get optimal airflow so that a 4870 gfx card remains cool

You can install one 120mm fan in front of the HDD's, to keep them cool. Get the vapor-x version of Sapphire 4870. Comes with better cooler to ensure that GPU remains cool. Cabinet fans don't help half as much as a great GPU cooler.

Ya, you should be fine to go then.

Put a 120mm in the front (pull), and put a 120mm at the back (push). This is the most you can do.

Even the stock one will keep him fine. As long as he does not OC his GPU. The 4870/4890s do run hot, but are manageable within stock hardware. The cabinet fans will insure a constant flow of fresh air.

Back to school!!
My friend wants to Buy a Laptop @ 35k.
He wants Long battery life, screen size 15" or LESS, 2GB+ RAM, no preference for graphics, onboard GPU will do.

Please suggest and put preference on battery life.

Do not suggest ION OR ATOM based systems.
