WD Black is available for around 5.5K now. :)

Nice config by myth. I think that OP can even manage a 3770K if he manages to get good prices. :)

That would be overkill :-D

No I don't think its overkill. I mean OP has a budget of 80K and both the configs suggested till now didn't reached that mark even with maximum prices so I really think that he can get that.
 
How about this rig:

cpu: i7 3770k (20000)
motherboard: msi Z77A-GD65 (13000)
ram: G.Skill RipjawsX 1600 MHz 4 GB x2 (1700+1700)
psu: Corsair tx750 (6700)
hdd: WD black 1 TB (5500)
GPU: hd7970 (29000)
cooler: CM hyper 412 slim (3000) or corsair ch40 (3200) your choice, air cooling or water cooling

total: 80600 (air cooled) or 80800 (water cooled)

How about the HX 650 instead of the tx650V2... and would it be better to get the 3770k or to invest in other components.
because i will use this rig mostly for gaming.
also anyone have a clue as to where the noctura is available?

some of the members are having problem with HX650...... tx650 v2 would be a safer bet imo.

and would it be better to get the 3770k or to invest in other components.

for gaming i5 3570k and i7 3770k are at par ... But :chinscratch: if you can buy it without compromising on any other component than you should go 4 it :doublethumb:

also anyone have a clue as to where the noctura is available?
here Buy Noctua | Noctua in India
But i don't know if nh 14 is available somewhere
 
Tx650v2 would be enough for a single hd7970, but a tx750 will give enough power for a 7970 crossfire. So its upto you which one do you want to get.

i5 3570K - Rs 13700
Asus Maximus V Formula - Rs 21000
G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL - Rs 3550
Gigabyte GTX 660 GDDR5 GV-N660OC-2GD SLI - Rs 14,700 x 2/Sapphire HD-7970-3GD5 - Rs 29400/28700
TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB - Rs 4300 (3 years warranty)
PSU - Seasonic X Series - 80 Plus Gold SS-760KM 760 Watts PSU - Rs 9000 (modular)
CPU Cooler Corsair A70 - Rs 3532 ( One of the best in business and more or less at par with a Noctua)


Total - Rs 84,482(Seasonic SS-760KM) / 82,082 (TX750V2UK)




You can skimp on the PSU if you dont want to use 2 CPU Connector with ATX 12V (4 pin) + EPS 12V (8 pin) which the motherboard supports and the PSU provides. If you are not going for extreme overclocks then you are fine with a Corsair TX750/850. That way you will bring the price down too. It is a rig worth Rs 80K and more !

1. HX650 worth spending extra money over TX650V2 .
2. Noctua is available with ITwares.

laborare est orare
@ Incinerator, is there any requirement of a 21K board here? Unless OP is going to overclock heavily, not only the CPU, but also the Memory, PCI-E Bus, Intel Quick Path Speed etc, Maximus V Formula is not going to help much to enhance performance. At 17K, he can easily get a Sabertooth Z77 whch will fulfill all his needs.

ok.
so build so far

CPU : i5 3570K
MOBO : Sabertooth Z77
COOLER : Noctura NH-U12P SE2 (cant seem to find it.. so corsair a70?)
RAM : G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
GPU : Sapphire 7970 oc
HDD : WD Black WD1002FAEX
PSU : hx650 80+ bronze/seasonic x660 ( rma issues ?)

if i get an ax 850 or an hx 850, although it would overshoot the budget buy about 5-6k , would it be advisable to add a second 7970 later
or should i just go with the single fastest gpu at this point of time ?
Also if i have some extra cash to spare would it make sense to get an ax/hx 850 ?

^ there is no need to go for sabertooth, maximus v gene is perfectly good for you IMO, unless you want to break world overclock records with LN2 cooling :-D, get an i7 3770k instead.

Gigabyte GTX 660 GDDR5 GV-N660OC-2GD SLI - Rs 14,700 x 2/Sapphire HD-7970-3GD5 - Rs 29400/28700

Yeah, actually, I saw some benchmarks and the gtx660 (non ti) sli beats a single hd7970 in every gaming benchmaer. And as the two options cost almost the same, I would suggest op to go for gtx660 sli.
 
CONCLUDED CONFIG:

cpu: i5 3570k (14000)
motherboard: asus maximus v gene (16000)
ram: G.Skill RipjawsX 1600 MHz 4 GB x2 (1700+1700)
psu: Corsair tx750 (6700) (although 650 W is required for this rig, but having extra power will air overclocking and maintain stability)
hdd: WD black 1 TB (5500)
GPU: Zotac gtx660 (14500+14500)
cooler: CM hyper 412 slim (3000) or corsair ch40 (3200) your choice, air cooling or water cooling

total: 77600

OR, you may also get i7 3770k instead of i5 3570k, total with i7 3770k: 83600 :razz:

@ Cilus the Sabertooth is a board that is good for stability and 24/7 stress use. Its a board that the OP can do without here. And since it is a Gaming Rig in question and hence moreover if by spending just Rs 3000 more someone can get one of the two Flagship ROG boards Asus offers in Z77 series with host of actual useful features and expandability option ,I see no point,despite having the budget, settling for a board that is no where near the performance the Maximus Formula offers. If I see what you see here he dosnt need either and can settle for the Maximus Gene / P8Z77 pro or a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H.

If somebody has a budget of Rs 80000 and wants to overclock I will never suggest him a Sabertooth but rather ask him to look at the very best the brand has to offer.


Read This.....even I feel the same that a P8Z77 pro/deluxe is a saner option if you are smart enough and dont fall for the kiddish plastic facia on a mainboard.

The Sabertooth has a simpler
voltage regulator circuit, no Wi-Fi, and lacks a PLX switch chip (that allows
higher performance when several data transfers are being executed at the
same time). The Realtek ALC892 audio codec is also a better option
for mainstream motherboards than top-shelf ones.
