Intel core i5 2500k @ 11k
Intel DH67CL @ 6.5k
2*2gb ddr3 corsair/kingston @ 2.2k
GTX 560 ti/HD 6950 @ 14.5k/14.3k
Seagate ITB 7200 @ 2.7k
LG 22X dvd r/rw @ .9k
corsair vx 550W @ 4.6k
CM Elite 430/NZXT gamma @ 2.5k/2k
DELL ST2220L @ 8.6k
Razer Cyclosa combo @ 2.2k
numeric 800VA @ 2.8k

total is coming @ 63k

you can save some money by going for
2gb ram for now , add 2gb later
going for NZXT gamma @ 2k
going for logitech KB+M @ .5k

this way you can save upto 3k

Can someone tell me why do i need a high price psu and case?
I really don't know how are they helpful
Can someone please explain it to me in simple terms?

for a powerful system , you need a even powerful PSU too
a good PSU provides quality power to all your pc components and efficiency helps in reducing the electric bills

Pricings of the Intel mobo's http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/1373932-post151.html

Get a Phillips SHP2000 Headphones for Rs. 600.00, worth for that budget. If you can stretch your budget then consider buying CM 690 II Advanced - 5.5k or APC 1KVA UPS

Note: Let not forget futureproof means have the capability to upgrade, without changing the existing setup.

Don't mind, i feel like asking the below query is quite important.

Are you nuts ???


560ti or 6950 can handle gta 4 & all the latest games available till date, like a piece of cake.

Please let me know, what do you understand by playing the game with high config ???

btw even a 2500k is more than enough for him
rest 4-5 k can be spent somewhere else like speakers/high performance ram/better case/etc.....

Is that rig(mentioned above) better than a ps3?
Is 560ti enough to play upcoming games for a year or so?

it will
and if you still feel a little unsettled, then you should go for 2500k instead of 2600
this way you can save around 4.5k
use that 4.5k for your graphic card and look out for HD 6970 or GTX 570
and you are good to go, no worries for a couple of year to come

Agreed with Piyush. 2500K can overclocked and can easily achieve the performance near to i7 2600. 2500K also offers almost same level of performance of i7 2600 in gaming.

Well i only need a pc for gaming
I will not use it for any kind of video editing conversion etc
So 2500k good enough for gaming purpose
And i really dnt onw how to overclock and all :-/
Sorry for being such a noob
I know that oc means getting more from the same processor
Bt can someone explain it to me in simple terms 'how to overclock'
What i have to do?
And what will be the disadvantages of overclocking?
And thanks for all your support

Disadvantages of overclocking in my opinion, in these times is none. If you screw up, your pc will either not start or hang up. Then you can just reset the overclock.

@sid25290
no need to oc now immediately. 2500k is powerful enough at stock speeds. later after passage of time when you see performance not upto the mark you may do it.

Overclocking differs a bit depending on processor and mobo. But I'd suggest you read articles on OC for at least 2 months before trying OCing. Or read guides about your specific mobo and proccy.
