----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi all, finally my parents agreed to buy a new PC and i would appreciate your help in getting my config in place:
>I thought i knew something about PCs but for the past month i have spent close to 20 hours reading about each component. So any advice is greatly appreciated as i am unable to decide for myself.

1. Purpose of the computer?
A: GAMING

2. Are you open to alternate ideas/products giving similar better performance but offering more VFM/ sellers? If not- why?
A: Yes

3. MAX budget?
A: 70k [60k for core system] (forget the rest)

4. Planning to overclock?
A: YES BUT NOT MUCH

5. OS A: Win 7 Home Premium OK?

6. HDD A: 1TB

7. Monitor A: Decided Dell U2311H @15k

8. How would you rate your hardware knowledge from the count of 1-10? (1 being the lowest, 5 being you are somewhat in sync with the current performers and 10 being the highest)
A: 4 Changed to 2

9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?
A: Assembler I can assemble everything except the CPU on the mobo and installing an OS. Do u suggest i assemble it myself (for the first time)?

10. When are you planning to buy the system?
A: ASAP

11. Are you one of the types looking out for "future proof" configurations?
A: 2-3years

12. Are there going to be any components that you don't want to include in this new rig? If yes, do mention.
A: Monitor, KB, Mouse, UPS decided already. No speakers.

13. Which city do you live in and are you open to buying from shops from other city/states?
A: BANGALORE & online is fine

14.ADDITIONAL POINTS: (edit- 16/5)
~Pls no RAID array suggestions or SSDs.
~No plans for 3D
~Pls keep core system below 60k or 55k better
~No SLI or Crossfire

Re: `GAM1NG PC @70k

You dont need to separate options.Get the best possible in your budget and OC that system.

my suggestion would be(core,with approximate prices):

Core i5 2500k @Rs. 11000
Asus P8p67 PRO @Rs.13000
G.Skill RipjawsX F3-12800CL9S-4GBRL @Rs.3500 (Add another for dual channel RAM and more space + performance if you want to)
MSI HD6970 Lightning @Rs.22000 (top of the line.Add another for crossfireX if you want more performance but much more cost :) )
Corsair GS700 PSU @Rs.5500
Cooler Master HAF-912 Advanced @Rs.5000
Seagate Barracuda ST2000DL003 2TB SATA III HDD @Rs.5500
Corsair H70 CPU Cooler @Rs.6000
Sony AD-7260S-ZR SATA II ODD @Rs.1200

total = Rs.72700

If you are using a desktop right now that has SATA II or higher HDD and DVD ODD with enough Storage for your needs then you can shave off some money by reusing them.Thats what I have done on my new setup,no regret whatsoever.

I will be honest with you,the logitech G500 mouse at Rs.3500 is much better than the Razer imperator.Most people who buy Razer fall for marketing strategy.I know a few people across the world who will agree with me that Razer has worse build quality than logitech.A G110 keyboard for Rs.3500 (MRP 4500) is a better buy than arctosa.
I have had 2 G5s,a G700 and a G500 at home and I can say that the G500 kicks some serious butt.
Not saying all their products are bad tho,their deathadder was great in its time.

I hope you have decided on a 1.1kVA or higher UPS because you chose a 700W PSU.

You can switch your GFX card to a GTX 570 if you want.
Take a look at this review:
HIS Radeon HD 6970 2 GB Review - Page 7/33 | techPowerUp
Check out the game performances of the 6970 and the GTX 570 and decide for yourself which card you want.If GTX 570 it is then get the Palit GTX 570 Sonic Platinum
For your setup,either will be good enough for most games.

The GTX 570 has physx and 3DVision (needs 120hz monitor + nvidia glasses).For surround gaming you need 2 or more.
The HD 6970 has eyefinity and 3rd party 3D (single card can do it,although performance will be hit in 3D and eyefinity).

Good luck and keep us posted.

Re: `GAM1NG PC @70k

i would stick to seasonic 2ii 620w or corsair tx650v2. Corsair GS series is good, but it is not a top class product.

Re: `GAM1NG PC @70k

I will agree with Joker that the TX series is better.

but he wants this to last only 2 years so the GS700 is a better option.However dont get a PSU below 700W especially if you buy either card I listed.

this doesnt make GS700 a better option. i would compare GS series models to a vx/tx series model 50w below it. corsair gs series is slightly overrated and uses non-japanese capacitors.

seasonic s12ii 620w or corsair tx650w (v2) is the way to go. plenty for the config u mentioned including hd 6970. :)

So for the PSU i should get either of these?
~SEASONIC S122II 620
~CORSAIR TX650 Buy Corsair | Buy Corsair 650W Power Supply | Corsair TX650W Power Supply

By 2 years i dont mean i will kill it after that. I hope it'll serve well for many years as the total cost is coming up to a very high price.

I would rather pay for more quality.


Pls suggest some more CPU-MOBO combos :confused:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How about this PSU from seasonic? Seasonic 750W SS-750JS Power Supply

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edited and updated the main post to clear suggestions about Raid, SSD and 3D apart from showing my desperation :(

no dont go for seasonic ss-750js.

see if you can find seasonic s12d 750w.

here it is:

seasonic s12ii 620w for 5.5k
corsair tx650 (v2) for 5.7k
seasonic s12d 750w for 6.3k

if u want a modular PSU...then

corsair hx620 for 6.3k
corsair hx650 for 6.6k

Sarath your best bet is to get a corsair TX750 V2 @ 7.5k or seasonic s12d 750w for 6.3k.

btw the GS700 has a 3 year warranty and the TX750 has 5 year warranty.

never skimp on PSU.get at least 700W.

I went all out and got AX-1200W PSU for my GTX 580 SLI setup

If you get the best PSU for your needs on the market,Get the Corsair AX-750 or HX-750.They have 80+ Gold rating with a 7 years performance warranty.I think it costs ~ 9k

add the H70 cooler and then its only slightly cheaper than my design,but a good choice ;)
However I suggest you get 2TB HDD

Extreme OC to 4.5Ghz+ CPU and 1.1Ghz core GPU will need all the power they can get.

I wont be OCing. Sorry for all the confusion but i dont want to go throught the hassle. I cant devote so much time to tinker with the PC.

Please suggest a non k proc and a good mobo for a HD6970/GTX 570 equivalent.

Will get the UPS and monitor today hopefully.

sorry for late reply and i wasnt refering to the config in my signature was editing the above post check it out now the graphic card is the fastest till date

@sarath
go for gamefreak's 2nd config
and since you wont add another gfx card or do OCing, then there is no need of 700W+ PSU

as joker already mentioned
seasonic s12ii 620w for 5.5k
corsair tx650 (v2) for 5.7k
are enough

I dont think i will be able to spend so much on a gfx card. I was initially pondering over getting it for 15k and then decided to go up to 20k. Now thats the ceiling. Pls suggest accordingly and I suppose that beckons changes in the PSU also now.
