Hello Guys, this is my First post in the Digit Forum :)


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: Future games like Crysis 3 , FIFA 13, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 , Medal of honour: Warfighter etc

2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then mention this too.
Ans:50k , if it can be upgraded and will be future proof for 3-4 years then can extend upto 60k

3. Planning to overclock?
Ans:i dun't know in deep knowledge about overclocking, is it safe ?? or it will upgrade the components to its fullest extent..

4. Which Operating System are you planning to use?
Ans: Win 7 Home Basic 32 bit I am having now. Is it capable of running under it ?

5. How much hard drive space is needed?
Ans: 1TB will be sure and How much SSD Will be minimum required ?

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:I am having a monitor of Samsung 22'' screen Syncmaster

7. Which components you DON'T want to buy or which components you already have and plan on reusing?
Ans: Keyboard,Mouse,Ups and Headphones,Dvd writer

8. When are you planning to buy the system?
Ans: In 10-15 days

9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?
Ans: Yes, will be done by an assembler

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:I live in Dombivli,Thane,Maharashtra... If needed can buy from Online Only From Flipkart.com or Mostly Locally

11. Anything else which you would like to say?
Ans: I need an Nvidia graphic card only and an intel Processor.

Is i7 safe ?? or i5 is better
Dun't have that knowlege in processors

And need an Beast Cabinet...

Just a reminder, it should be futureproof for running games for atleast 3-4 years.

Is overclocking safe ?

I am a fan of nvidia,so prefer using it..

And why not i7, for future proof ?

is it safe overclocking ?

Want to run gamer at high seetings...

Overclocking is safe when done properly.Overclocking these processors is quite easy.

At this time,in the price range of 15-23k,radeon cards offer better performance than nvidia counterparts.HD7870 is a very good card,overclocks well,provides good gaming performance at full hd.If you want nvidia gtx670,then you would have to spend around 30k on it.

i5 2500k is a very powerful processor.It can handle all day-to-day tasks and multi-threaded tasks smoothly.Its gaming performance is very good.
Unless you are more into heavily multi-threaded tasks like video rendering etc. you wont need i7 2600k.Also considering gaming performance there is almost no difference between i5 2500k and i7 2600k.Moreover an i7 2600k would overshoot your budget.At stock speed also i5 2500k provides decent performance.If you want more performance from it then you can always overclock it with help of an aftermarket cooler like cm hyper 212 evo.
For more responsiveness you can add an SSD to the system when you want.
SSD would make your system more responsive than anything.

Hey this one will be good.
1.Processor: Intel Core i5 2500k: 13k
2.Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme 4: 10k
3.RAM: Corsair Vengeance 4GB 1600MHz: 1.7k
4.HDD: Seagate 500GB: 4k
5.SSD: OCZ Petrol 64GB: 5k
6.GPU: MSI R7770 2PMD1GD5/OC x2: 18k
7.PSU: Corsair GS 600: 4.5k
8.Cabinet: Cooler Master Elite 430: 2.5k
9.CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO: 2k
Total: 60.7k
With this configuration you will be Xtremely future-proof. You will be able to overclock your CPU and GPU, whenever you need the extra perfomance. Happy gaming with your new rig. And I have suggested a 500GB HDD if you can extend your budget a bit more you can get a 1TB HDD or a 120GB SSD.

^^ Nope, cross firing lower end cards is not advisable for a high budget rig. Better to stick with a single gpu like 7870. The reason is that a single card is more consistent in performance and i doubt 7770cf can beat a single 7870 handsdown.

Sli and cf of higher end cards ( for amd, 7850 or higher) is recommended.

I dunt want to crossfire any graphic card... So want to have only single care for better performance..

So which one is better ? Nvidia or hd radeon

Also need 8 gb ram...

At sub 30K price point, GTX 670 is the best choice. However, it is not possible even the highest end current generation cards like GTX 680 or HD 7970 to run games at high setting for 3 to 4 years. Obviously they'll be playable but in medium setting.

2-3 year it would run at high and then further years at med i can deal with that...

So i am going with Nvidia GTX670 then.....

Ok,then my fixed decision for the gaming rig is :


Intel i5-2500k

Nvidia GTX670

ASROCK Z77 EXTREME 4

8 GB Ram gskill

WD Cavier Blue 1 TB HDD

Corsair Force Series 3 120GB SSD



So now i am left with psu,heatsink,cabinet.....

Corsair Force Series 3 120GB SSD @7k



So now i am left with psu,heatsink,cabinet.....

The above components though good would take your budget way higher then wat you Originally planned. PSU+Cabinet+Heatsink would atleast come to a total of 10k extra.

Total would come to something around 75k to 80k!

i am selling my current cpu.... So it will help in reducing the price to 60k..... And with some barganing and discount it can be lowered in the local shops...

My selling cpu config :

2gb ram
gigabyte mobo
nvidia geforce 8500GT
250 GB HDD
intel core 2 duo
And some other components in it will give me 7-8k discount....
