Welcome to TDF :) You have a good budget for a powerful gaming PC. Here's my suggestion:

i5 4430 (13200)
Asus B85M-G (6000)
G.Skill RipjawsX 1600 MHz 4 GB (2500)
WD Blue 1 TB (4100)
Zotac GTX 770 2 GB GDDR5 (32800)
Seasonic S12II 620 W (5200)
Corsair 400R (5800)
Dell S2240L (8800)
3 120 mm fans (1200)

total: 79600

I don't have much experience with gaming KB, mice and headphones so I'm leaving them to be suggested by oher members. You have 5.4k remaining for that.

In that case try to get GTX 760 SLI

760SLI will increase permormence a lot then a ssd

Beware both of them will charge way higher than other dealers will.

Also spending 85k for a rig to play GTA4 and Mafia2. Are you serious bro?
You can play those games in a 40-50k rig!


Also the Dell 23" you have is of what resolution ?

I'll not be limiting myself to playing only those games........(I m not much of a tech guy) But if this config sounds too hitech for similar games......I can go for a shade lower config...no harm is sum bucks saved.

I don't have Dell monitor......but i'll be buying the 22" as suggested above....
Will be visiting Lamington Road on Fri or Sat......so will keep posted about the developments.......

No, there won't be any heating issues. Most of us run our systems in a Non-AC room.

Yes, I did visit lamington road on Saturday but it was late in the evening & so lots of dealers had shut for the day.

I have received this quote from Prime;

i5 4430 12450
Asus B85M-G 6400
G.Skill RipjawsX 1600 MHz 4 GB 2900
WD Blue 1 TB 4250
Zotac GTX 770 2 GB GDDR5 Not in stock
zotac 760 2gb 19900
Seasonic S12II 620 W 5100
Corsair 400R Not in stock
NZXT Tempest 410 4500
Dell S2240L 9300
120 mm fans nzxt 900
DVD R/W LG 950
Razer death adder 2013 3200
Keyboard - Razer arctosa 2500

As u can see above....the Graphic card & cabinet which were suggested to me in earlier thread r not in stock & have been suggested alternative instead which i've highlighted in bold.

R the above prices ok ??..... Also is the above config adequate for me ?? Like I said i'm planning to play Mafia 2, GTA IV, Max Payne 3..... Would it be able to handle GTA V when released on PC ? Wud 3 - 120 mm fans be adequate to keep the system from overheating.....? Shud i go to 8 GB Ram & i5-4670 ?

Pls advise.

I would not be looking to upgrade the system for atleast another 2yrs after the purchase.

> prices are good.

> Downgrade from 770 to 760 will be a big performance decrement. try to get 770 from some other shop. Don't settle with 760 when you can accommodate a 770.

> for cabinet, you can also go for used NZXT phantom.

> 3 fans are more than enough. Additionally, the cabinet itself comes with 2-3 fans.
