So, this is my first gig in building a gaming pc, not really my field really but ive done a bit of research, i need your help to make it perfect


Iam open to any and all suggestions, advice and help from you guys

  • Iam going to be using it for gaming mostly and watching movies and tv shows
  • Iam planning to buy it from lamington road mumbai, i have prime abgb in my mind as to which shop but taking in recommendations, ill be taking quotations from a few shops over there though
  • Iam going to buy it in june 1st or 2nd week, iam waiting for the r9 300 announcement in computex taipei (june 2-6th) before making my desicion
  • Iam planning to play games on it for 4-5 years in 1080p (possibly upgrade to 1440p when they get cheaper) in ultra settings without any problems
  • Iam not overclocking
  • Iam willing to increase my budget if theres a performance boost
  • Iam willing to wait for any upcoming tech if its worth it
  • I can buy anything online if its cheaper or only available online
  • I wont be needing mouse, keyboard, speakers, optical drive, headphones and those shenanigans
  • I sit for hours together in a comp, watching something, gaming (mostly only gaming), surfing or typing out my dessertation, and iam not sitting ...its still on with something on utorrent

What iam looking

  • A good CPU, i do mmo's from time to time so i think a good cpu is a must, i was thinking i5 4690 (can i even afford i7 here?), iam going for non K edition since i wont be overclocking, is there any reason to go for AMD Fx in this price range, i read intel's single thread performance is better
  • Motherboard, i need a future proof one for the next gen of intel processors ? so i guess z97 ? any good suggestions ?
  • A ATX cabinet with dust filter, i heard these things are available i would very much like them, dust is my mortal enemy, if its flashy and good for showing off its a plus point, but cooling and dust filters are priority..ample space and good cable management, usb 3.0 ports..i had coolermaster n400, circle cc830 and deepcool tessract, deepcool kendomen ti mid tower in my mind...any others? also whats a itx, the little box thingy..are they any good ?
  • For GPU iam looking at MSI GTX GEFORCE 970 4gb (read online that the msi ones are best), if not this then asus strix ? or the upcoming zotac card amp omega 970 or the zotac normal 970 one, although iam going to be making my desicion after amd announces their 300 series cards, heard that the HBM will be only on their flagship card 390 and rest will be rebrands, iam not sure i can even afford any of them
  • A cheap SSD with 120gb and a reliable hdd with 7200rpm and 1 or 2 TB, iam looking at western digital but not sure which one caviar green ?black?...i can skip the ssd if things go beyond budget, also any good hybrid hdds?
  • For RAM iam going for gskrill ripjawsx 1866mhz 2x4gbs ddr3, i would like to know if getting ddr4 is worth it, i mean if it costs only marginally more i would get them now...also is 1866 fine or i should look for higher ? also any better brands?
  • Cooler i would be going with coolermaster evo 212x (what are the x and non x version in this ?)..also my friend as a coolermaster hydro series cooler, is liquid cooling worth it ?
  • What kind of paste should i look for to attach the cooler ?
  • PSU iam not which ones are good, suggest me one considering this setup ^
  • I would also be needing a good wifi card since my home has a wifi setup and it will be pain to use a ethernet from where my router is to where ill be keeping the pc
  • Iam not sure what a sound card will do for me, how much it costs or do i even need one
  • For the monitor i need 1080p display, ips or tn panel ? which one should i go for with 120 or 144hz refresh rate and a decent screen size of 21-24 inch (can skimp out on the monitor and go for a 1080p60hz if things cross the budget)
  • Will there be need to attach extra fans to the cabinet, if so how many and which ones

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks guys, thats all...feel free to post your setup suggestions, any upcoming parts i should be looking out for and if its worth waiting, any advice while building, places where i can buy them or anything
Also let me me know much the entire thing will cost

Heres some badass folk metal for you

Not an expert here but just wondering...since you plan to watch movies as well, why not consider buying BluRay DVD drive/writer.. this could compliment the high end specs you have in mind.

blurays are not exactly sold at prices everyone would automatically want to buy.....

9590 consumes hell lot of power. I would never recommend it.
