Hey guys., I'm going to build a new gaming rig under 70k., I'm an hardcore gamer + Networking enthusiast and I can't use the components from my old PC acc. to my needs so I have to buy everything new., here's what I made mentioned below with current price details from my regular shop.,

Intel® Core™ i5-25ooK ---12,500

Asus ML238H --- 11,900

ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3(From Distributor) --- 9,000 (approx.)

MSI 6870 Twin Frozer II --- 14,000

Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 7200 Rpm --- 5,500

Creative Inspire T6160 --- 3,553

G Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600 MHZ 8GB (2*4) --- 3,400

Cooler Master Elite 430 Black ATX(RC-430-KWN1) --- 2,970

Microtek 600va UPS ---1,650

Cooler Master CX 500W --- 3, 600

Logitechk100 +Gigabyte GM-M6900(online) +Razer Goliathus --- 350+1500+750

Asus 24x burner --- 1,200

Xbox 360 Common Controller --- 1,450

Zebronics 90 mm fans * 6 ---2,100

I searched the internet market (Google + theitwares+primeabgb+smcinternational etc..) and found higher pricing for CPU -Monitor & PSU in my list., Motherboard is in transit & would arrive on last week of Dec or in Jan., Gigabyte Gm-m6900 is not available anywhere so if anyone knows where to buy from please tell me or I have to go for Razer Deathadder/CM Spawn --- 1,900/1,500, and I can leave HDD for now because of Skyrocket price., should i wait for Ivy bridge CPU and PCI 3.0 GPU or not ?

So all your suggestions are welcome & help me to create the best in budget.

:smile: Thanks for the configuration guys., I would go with SAPPHIRE HD 6950 1GB -- Corsair GS 550W -- Cooler Master HAF 912 and no Speaker & no HDD because I'll buy them later on and will use my old FRONTECH 4.1 2280W & 80gb Seagate+500 GB Seagate portable and leftover items will be same on my list.

Any more suggestions guys., especially I need for better cooling cabinets.

There is no Corsair GS550W model out there AFAIK.If you got the budget better get Seasonic S12 850Watt @6.2K.More headroom is always better for your future upgrade.Cabinet and PSu is the only component which future is proof.We don't change it often.Better get suggested psu.

Nice config there.
I would recommend only one change: Get Seasonic S12 850 at the same price instead of TX 750V2. That seasonic model is the OEM of TX 850 V2. So, why getting a 100Watt lesser PSU when you can get 850Watt PSU at the same price?

Any more suggestions guys., especially I need for better cooling cabinets.

Corsair Carbide 400R is a very good case for overclocking, with very good air-flow. You may also look at NZXT Temptest EVO and CM 690 Advanced.

:mrgreen: Oops by mistake it's CORSAIR GS 500w., but tell me are these gaming series Psu is not good from a reliable brand.
And what about Cooler Master GX 550 w., it has a Max.output of 640w something., and here in my city GX 500w is 5.5k., isn't shopkeepers big mouth., seasonic s12 850w would be 7k here., I can Max only 5k for Psu:-|

Thanks but Corsair & NZXT are not available here otherwise I would have opt for NZXT Vulcan Black., Only CM and Zebronics., what about CM HAF 912 advanced it's around 5.5k on internet ., I need killer looks + good cooling.

^^Go for at-least Corsair GS600@4k or Seasonic S12 II 620W@4.6K Bold one is better

Don't consider Coolermaster GX series, they are not good.Only Silent Pro series is good.

Ok thanks a lot " Seasonic S12 II 620w " is on top priority if available here.

CF HAF 912 Avdanced is a good cabinet, is priced at ~5.5K. So, if you like its look, then you can buy it. :) You may think about Corsair 400R @ ~5K range.

Okz I prefer more cooling., but SAPPHIRE dual fan edition doesn't look good as MSI TF series or XFX/ASUS dual fan editions.
AND
Dude you are telling me to wait for 7 series., hah I have already waited so long for my gaming -rig., presently I use XFX 4350., so I'll definetly buy 6950 & sit free for 2 years.

After going through above prices, it looks like your shopkeeper is going to rob you in broad day sunlight. Almost everything is expensive by atleast Rs.400-500. even Ebay is cheaper then this.

Jas, don't take all the comments about Sapphire HD 6950 personally. Tomshardware recommended this card due to its price and the free DIRT 2 game, not for the best performer. The Gigabyte and MSI cards were faster and cooler, not in very high margin but still ahead. It is quite obvious because those cards were factory overclocked. And it is true that Twin Frozr cooling is better than the rest. The Sapphire Twin Fan version model is not hot or something but it is also not cooler than the other factory oced cards.

Quotes from Tomshardware:
Sapphire becomes the value leader for those who want the free game, while HIS is the only choice for those who want both a free game and dual DisplayPort outputs.

i am not taking anything personally.

talking about performance i am running it at 895mhz now (default:800)and going to try 900 with last mission of BC2.
and what is interesting is this is all at stock volt. yes its stock. so you see the headroom left.

and temps? getting load 68C~ with heavy game like BC2 at 895mhz.
will post results soon in separate thread.

about toms review -
image029.png

at full fan sapphire is cooler.

now check noise -

and gigabyte agreed, but its not available in India.

and if someone really wants best performer 6950 then Sapphire HD6950 Toxic is the one to get.

But the review you have posted showing that MSI card runs cooler and performs better out of the box, right? I am not saying that Sapphire cooler is bad or something, I am owing one and know even their base models come with good cooler solution. I know you are experienced in Oceing and can push the card to along way but for a person with not so much knowledge, the Twin Frozr II is a better choice as it is a factory oced modle and has a great cooler.

cilus sapphire is cooler at full fan. but 1-2C dont matter. ;-)
yeah agreed out of box performance is better of msi.

no buddy, ocing it wasnt at all a difficult task. just used bad company 2. completed it once again while going from 800 to 900.
