1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run?
Ans: I want to play latest games at a good resolution with high settings. My PC should be futureproof for at least 3 years. It should run the games that would be launched in future years at any settings(even lowest would work for me)

3. Planning to overclock?
Ans: Yes, but just a little bit.

Ans: at least 1 TB. Already have 320 GB SATA-2 3gbps 7200RPM hdd.

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 live in Kanpur. I can shop some components online which have cash on delivery option.

11. Anything else which you would like to say?
Ans:I would like to go for an AMD bulldozer(1090t) processor rather than core i5 Suggest a good gaming controller which is compatible with almost all games. I also want to ask whether buying a gaming console is better than buying a PC. Gaming on which platform is cheaper : Console(Xbox 360 or PS3 only) or PC

No HDD here as the prices are very high if you want you can get 250 GB HDD at 3.5k and 500 GB at 4.2k . But I suggest that you keep you 320 GB HDD for now.
As you are buying 2-3 months later , therfore there could be change in prices and newer GPU 's would come in market (HD 7850/7870) and also Nvidia Kepler .

This is just the basic layout for the rig after three months a lot can change.

Gaming Console and PCs both have their Pros and Cons, As Console are cheaper than PCs but they have comparatively high price of games (sometimes 3x) . It's your choice what you want , Personally I would always go for PC as there can be much more thing to do in PCs .

BTW , you live in Kanpur . I live here too and in fact I am also buying a new pc 3-4 months later .

get i5 2400(~9500)+intel DH67CLB3(~5400).just for ~1600 more you will get a config which will be far more powerful than any AMD 4cores especially in gaming even after overclocking the amd processor.

Undead!!!
go for i5 2400k...wont regret.
controllers ..did u mean gamepads.etc???xbox 360 usb is best in case u want to know.
pc is far better than consoles(my view)
you get hi res gfx..better controls(keyboard+mouse)..cheaper pc games..easy availability ...multi player of fps like cod battlefield beyond comparison on pc..

I'd say to reuse the HDD for now and buy one when the prices are down.


Component Make Price
CPU Intel Core i5-2400 10,535
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2H 3445
RAM Corsair DDR3 4 GB 1220
GPU Radeon HD6870 11500
Optical Drive Asus DRW-24B3ST 1112
Case Coolermaster Elite 311 2100
PSU Seasonic S12 II 520 3770
Monitor Benq G2222HDL 7600
Controller Microsoft Wired Controller 1400
TOTAL 42682

This config would outperform even the overclocked AMD one. If you can extend the budget a bit more go for MSI H67MA-E35 or Intel DH67CL.

if one is not OCing. what would be difference between H61 & H67 chipset with Core i5 & HD 6870 or even HD 6950. I ve always seen H67 being recommended instead H61, would it make a real difference in performance.

H67 chipset(intel DH67CLB3) has features like sata3,usb3 & more no. of pci & pci-e slots.since ssd & usb3 devices prices are dropping soon in future not having these features will certainly hurt.

we are paying 50% more for H67 as compared to H61. Would it translate into similar gains in SATA3, USB3 ? and overall performance boost for everyday usage.

Performance difference between H61 and H67 is nil. H67 has
>More RAM slots.
>Supports SATA III
>Supports USB 3.0
>More PCI slots

That's it. If you're on a tight budget and don't mind sacrificing the above stuff get an H61 with eyes closed.

a decent H61 mobo costs ~3200 while DH67CLB3 costs ~5400,a difference of ~2200.H61 has no sata3 & usb3.price of 60gb sata III ssd has dropped to ~5000 & hopefully after a year or so it should drop to ~3500.one such ssd as boot drive will significantly increase the overall OS performance.also usb3 even now offers twice the speeds of usb2 & in future when more & more devices will be usb3 it will come in handy.

See this.

Seems like it can run all latest games at 720p with medium settings.

EDIT : Posted this trusting the videos shown above. Just ignore this post.

this is incorrect.HD3000 is even slower than radeon HD 5450,a Rs.2000 graphics card.HD3000 is only good for watching HD videos or running some 2-3 yrs old games in low/med settings.

err....wheres the faceplam smiley...that IGP is only for HTPC...even then u through the 1080P bluray and it slows down...

:facepalm: I'm not suggesting anyone to go for the HD 3000 IGP instead of a GPU. I was just trying to tell that it is capable of running games like crysis 2, bf3 etc (at low setting) as shown in the youtube link.

this is incorrect.HD3000 is even slower than radeon HD 5450,a Rs.2000 graphics card.HD3000 is only good for watching HD videos or running some 2-3 yrs old games in low/med settings.

Then how is the IGP running games like Crysis 2, BF3 etc as shown in the link? They are pretty new games. Or are the videos fake? I never said that the IGP is superior to any GPU. But still it could run. Correct me if I'm wrong.

^^ BF3 @ HD?

what you see here is that even HD3000 struggle to offer 15FPS on Metro 2033 at low resolution. This is more close to Full HD than HD but still, if HD3000 struggle like this, what will HD2000 offer? 12-13FPS? i have played BF3 on HD4250 (AMD 785G, slow than HD2000) on my PC, just to test how it performs and even at 1024X768, you have to lower details to min to avoid getting killed in the first few minutes.

Even Ivy Bridge graphics can't run any new games at HD. read more here: Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000 Performance, The Ivy Bridge Preview.
