Hi ppl,
I'm planning to assemble a rig for 40k for gaming. I already have a 17" LCD monitor which I will be using and the config I've decided is as follows -
Processor : AMD Phenom ii X4 955 BE - 8k / 1050t 10.5k
Motherboard : Plz suggest a specific model thats overclocking friendly
RAM : 2*2 GB DDR3 - 5.8k
HDD : WD caviar blue 500GB - 2k
Graphics card : HD Radeon 5750 1 GB GDDR5 - 9k / 5770 - 10k
CD drive : 1.1k
Cabinet : NZXT Gamma : 2k
Total : 27900 - 31400

Ppl pls comment and suggest a mobo and PSU for this config as well as a UPS (UPS not in budget).

I ran across this calculator here but it only lists CM PSU options. Plz tell me how reliable are CM PSU's.

Motherboard : 785G based motherboard - 4.7k

Graphics card : HD Radeon 4870
CD drive : 1.1k
Cabinet : Zebronics Antibiotic : 2.2k
Wifi card - not sure of price

Ppl pls comment and suggest a PSU for this config as well as a UPS (UPS not in budget).

Processor : AMD Phenom ii X4 955 BE - 8k CHANGE IT TO EITHER 965 OR NEW 1050T

Motherboard : 785G based motherboard - 4.7k SEEMS OK BUT U CAN GO FOR 880G BASED MOBO AT THE SAME PRICE

RAM : 2*2 GB DDR3 - 5.8k OK
HDD : WD caviar blue 500GB - 2.5k SEEMS DECENT
Graphics card : HD Radeon 4870 NOW THIS IS THE AREA OF CONCERN
SEE 4870 IS A POWERFUL CARD BUT ITS POWER HUNGRY TOO
BETTER GO FOR HD 5770 ALMOST SAME/BETTER PERFORMANCE WITH LOW POWER USAGE


CD drive : 1.1k

Cabinet : Zebronics Antibiotic : 2.2k BETTER OPTION IS NZXT GAMMA AT 2K

i suggest going for last option. multitasking + gaming, all in 1.

Motherboard : 785G based motherboard - 4.7k SEEMS OK BUT U CAN GO FOR 880G BASED MOBO AT THE SAME PRICE

other than ECS none selling 880G cheap. a 785G board @ 2.1k, Biostar TA785G3 HD seems good fit.

: 2*2 GB DDR3 - 5.8k OK

price have dropped i feel. 5.3k or so good one.

HDD : WD caviar blue 500GB - 2.5k SEEMS DECENT

should get for 2.1k

Graphics card : HD Radeon 4870 NOW THIS IS THE AREA OF CONCERN

yup. true.

Cabinet : Zebronics Antibiotic : 2.2k BETTER OPTION IS NZXT GAMMA AT 2K

have u checked out the new Cooler Master USP 100? cost 3.2k. feature wise, not much. but look wise, it rocks.

^^WHOA!!!!!!
looking evil
will suit me....

yes, look evil. not too much. perfectly suites for those who wants some style with a few good features. not much talk about. cable management is poor. only 1 X 120mm LED red/blue (depending on the colour of cabby). 90degree HDD placement. bottom PSU placement. 5 fan capacity. its like a Cooler master + NZXT hybrid.


:huh?: link nehi khulta.

errr that cabinet above is a nono for me :p

yaya for me :smile:

its not that biostar mobos are bad
its the model which make it bad or good due to the features on it
if u still think like that,then opt for MSI /gigabyte(but they'll be a lil costly)

also CM PSUs arent bad
its the Model which......bla bla bla.......
CM extreme series should be neglected
corsair/antec/FSP/Seasonic are the nice and reputed brands to look for

and where do you stay?are u going to buy ur PC online?

well yes. upto 2.5k, it'll be sweet deal. at 3.2k + tax, no more sweet. still, if looks matter, can be tried. still i'll say price is high.

except extreme power & the + version. everything good.

than go for 785G or 790GX (MSI 785GM E53. the bio* i mentioned above) both are good mobo & priced well too.

Hm..Now I think so.I have Biostar TA785G3 HD.Features and price are good.
But lacking perfection.PC takes so much time to wake up from sleep.Also USB device cant wake up PC from S3 sleep.I have tried my best in bios, even updated it.Still no solution:(.Like this small inconveniences are there.But in MSI all were perfect.
