I need to build gaming pc between 25k-28k. plz suggest me(i personally prefer intel config)

1. What is the purpose of the computer? (Note: If you are planning to say multimedia, you will have to be more specific as all types of systems are capable of doing that)

2. Are you open to alternate ideas/products giving similar better performance but offering more VFM/ sellers? If not- why?

3. What is your MAX budget?

4. Planning to overclock?

5. Which OS are you planning to use?

6. How much hard drive space is needed?

7. What resolution will the screen run at & whats the size of the screen you want? If you already want have one and want to use it, mention its resolution and size.

8. How would you rate your hardware knowledge from the count of 1-10? (1 being the lowest, 5 being you are somewhat in sync with the current performers and 10 being the highest)

9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?

10. When are you planning to buy the system?
A:With in 20 days

11. Are you one of the types looking out for "future proof" configurations?

At a budget below 30K, it is very hard to get a well balanced Intel Sandy Bridge based rig. I think here AMD will provide you a better optimized rig. You can check the Toms Hardware Best Gaming CPU For money, May, 2011 and will find out that they also recommended an AMD CPU in Sub $100 category.

My suggestion is

AMD Athlon II X4 635 @ 4K
Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H @ 4K
Corsair 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 @ 2.1K
Seagate 1 TB SATA 7200.12 @ 2.7K
Sapphire HD 6870 @ 11.2K
LG 22X SATA DVD Writer @ 0.9K

Total 28.9K. Since you will be buying from Kolkata, the street price of most of the components are on the lower side. For the HD 6870 GPU, you can try M.D. computers and ask them to give it @ 11K. Our forum member Cool Comp has purchased it from there. For AMD based mobo and CPU, try Vedant as they offer cheaper price than others for AMD components.

This is a better config than the Core i3 2100 as (2100 + HD 6850) <<( Athlon II 635 + HD 6870) in gaming.

One more think do u guys know whare can i find(i mean which shop in chandni) UT-300R2U modem??



I am the night...I am...
^^ Get the phenom II x4 840 @ 4.8k instead. It has faster clocks and performs better than the x4 635. Besides it has better brag and resale value considering the phenom title.

But architecturally, its no different than athlon 2 x4.

@sundar07, get Corsair CX400W instead. no to Corsair CX430W. low efficiency & always avoid Cooler Master PSU.

for motherboard look for Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-US2H/UD2H else check some Asus motherboard based on 880G chipset.
