Hey guys, I'm planning to built a gaming rig for my friend. Budget is Rs. 30K, but it can be increased by Rs. 5K. It will be used for general purposes like viewing HD movies, photoshop, browsing the net, etc. My main priority is gaming as I want it to run Crysis, Batman Arkham City, DIABLO III smoothly. Also, this rig is mainly built to play DIABLO III at max settings. I would like to display to be either 17" or 19" from DELL, BenQ or Viewsonic. OS used will be Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Storage space of 1TB-2TB. I won't be overclocking it but it should be future proof.

Hey, thank you for the quick reply man. But, could you suggest different components for the same budget like an
Intel processor [i3 or i5]
Mobo - Asus or Gigabyte for the intel processor
GPU - Preferably a Sapphire one or MSI
HDD - Seagate 2TB
PSU - FSP products are not available here. Could you suggest Cooler Master or Corsair products or any other you prefer.
Monitor - Either Dell, BenQ or view sonic
UPS - not needed.

Hi Tarun, I would like you to suggest motherboards other than Intel. And the processor to be an i3 and an i5.

If you want Intel CPU then Core i3 2100 @ 5.5K is the best choice. For motherboard, get the Intel DH67BL-B3 version @ 5K. This board's build wuality is as good as in Gigabyte and Asus mobo.

Ok now I've finalized the processor being Intel i3 2100 and the mobo Intel DH67BL-B3 version. Coming to the display, is the Acer P206HV 20" any good than the DELL, BenQ or ViewSonic brands. I would still prefer the display to be either 17" or 19".

Ok, now suppose I go for Intel Core i5 with no overclocking, no Crossfire/SLI setup and increase the budget to max Rs. 40K, what processor and mobo would you recommend. And I'll take the BenQ G2220HD monitor. Also, would it be possible to get a Full HD monitor that has in-built speakers and HDMI port for the new budget.

core i5 2400 and a H67 based motherboard a core i5 2400 costs around 9k and a intel DH67BL will cost 5K so the total goes around 40.3k

The Z68 would be too expensive, P67 would do just fine and costs less. That's about it. Btw you would need to spend more on a decent LCD and graphics card, I don't see much of HD gaming on the Intel's 3000. The cheap and good product would be Samsung's B2230 @7k.

^^ your suggested motherboard is an AMD AM3 motherboard designed for AMD Athlon II and Phenom II processors, not for Intel processors. You can't fit an Intel CPU in a AMD motherboard.
