Spend on a smaller 60 GB ssd and spend more to get a card like HD 7950. That would be better for the long run IMO.

It will blow your previous configuration out of the serene blue waters in every aspect from sound to fps to overclocking to price to performance ratio!

An i5 is way more than enough for a gaming system.You dont need an i7 for gaming.

I want a small cabinet compared to Corsair 400R/NZXT Phantom and also which looks sexy,can accommodate more fans,good cable management,with a side window as well. So I went for Corsair 300R. Are there any cabinets which are smaller that I don't know of. I thought of Bitfenix Prodigy but it can fit only uATX boards which are not available anywhere online/local. I inquired from Asus,Asrock and MSI (Z77) but they say it is very costly compared to other ATX boards. I also choose MSI Z77 Mpower because it has both WiFi/BT as well for a fair price.

I also want to know when can I expect Haswell Intel Chipset might arrive in 2013. I mean would it be costly like SB (X79) or price conscious like IB (Z77) and SB (Z68). Would it have more cores than 4 in fact.

You can go for the Phantom 410 ... good looking + side window + good cable management + proper dimensions. A too samll cabinet is bad for cooling hence gaming.
A usb bluetooth and wifi card will come for Rs 950 more. But you can t compare that MSI Motherboard with the Asus Maximus V Gene,it is a ROG board very well made and superb in performance.
Everything about Haswell you read is speculation. I think it wont come out atleast till the 2nd quarter of 2013,but no one know for sure except ofcourse Intel!

^^This +1. i5 3570K is enough for gaming. Rather than spending on i7 and a 240 GB SSD, spend on GPU like Incinerator has suggested. Go with this rig you won't be disappointed.

Change Cooler with:
Corsair H80 @5.6K
and RAM with G.Skill ripjawsX 1600MHz 4x 4GB RAM @ 5.6K

Total: 99700/-

Choices of all other components are good.
But you may think about changing the motherboard to Asus P8Z77-V pro @16K (optional choice)

That's all from my end. :)

A Blu ray not a good idea right now , though Im dying to get one but would wait for the prices to mellow down a bit. The media and hardware both cost a bomb.

Previously I used to have this config which I intend to sell now which I bought in May,2012 excluding the monitor,KB,Mouse and Speakers.

Intel Core i5 3570k -14500,
ASrock Z77 Extreme4 -9500,
Sapphire 7850 2GB -15500,
Corsair 400R -4000,
Corsair GS600 -4000,
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2*4GB) 1600MHz -3000,
Western Digital 1TB Black HDD -6800,
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo -2200,
Asus DRW-24B3ST DVD-RW -1100,
CM 120mm RED LED Fans 2Pcs -900,
D-Link PCI-WIFI -700.
TOTAL -62200.

How much can I sell the above config because I have bills for all the items. If needed I may keep the 1TB WD Black HDD for the next RIG.

Now I want to buy a new system with the below config which I have decided upon considering various TDF members suggestions. Thanks to all of them.


Intel Core i5 3570k -14000,
MSI Z77 Mpower -15500, ( I am in a dilemma whether to go for Asus Maximus V Gene or MSI Z77 MPower because the latter have BT/WiFi that's why.)
ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 660 Ti -20000,
Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD -15000,
Corsair 300R -4200,
Corsair AX750 -11200, (I have seen in Flipkart that AX750 price is around 10250 {out of stock here} but local dealers are quoting 11200, I want to know whether AX650 is available with anybody or not and its price.)
Corsair H60 Cooler -4000, ( I will mildly overclock about 200Mhz increase only so H60 is enough right, I mean I don't actually have an idea at all)
G.Skill RipjawsZ 8GB (2*4GB) 2133MHz -4770,
APC Back-UPS Pro 100VA -7200,
Asus DRW-24B5ST DVD-RW -1100,
CM 120mm BLUE LED Fans 4Pcs -1800,
CM 120mm GREEN LED Fans 2Pcs -900.
TOTAL -99670.

I wan to buy this RIG in Jan,2013 during the big festival as it is auspicious for us Andra fellows. Please post any opinions regarding the 2 RIGS posted above and GeForce GTX 660 Ti performance is very close to AMD Radeon 7950 but 7950 does not have Physx right so I think this GTX 660 Ti card is better and also cheaper by 4k compared to the latter. I also want to know whether 140mm fans can be used on the top portion of 300R because in 300R Fan Club I read that 140mm fans obstruct DVD-RW's installation. So I opted for 120mm fans instead. Also where can I get CM 120mm/140mm Transparent LED Fans online not those smoky LED CM fans as I am already using 2 of those fans right now and I don't like them at all.

My advice would be to change the gpu to a 7970 and cpu cooler to an h80.Keep the other components in your rig.

AS for the 7850,u can sell it for 10-11k and the cpu cooler for 1.5-1.7k.

Living to Play
1. Get a 120GB SSD rather than a 240GB. Trust me 120GB is more than enough, with saved money get a WD 1TB Cavier Black.
2. Get Asus Maximus Gene
3. Get Corsair HX750 or TX750 V2
4. Get a 7950 instead of a 660ti.
5. Get a Air CPU Cooler. For liquid cooling look for no less than H100.

Say what? You have this ig already? Then what is the point of selling everything in here? :eek:

You want to upgrade?
Add another HD7850 2GB card with it;
Sell Hyper 212 EVO, get Corsair H100.
Get a 2133MHz 8GB RAM kit, and add it alongside that 1600MHz kit, or sell that 1600MHz kit.
You motherboard isn't that good for overclocking. If you want serious overclocking out of 570K (say >4.5GHz) only then change the motherboard. There is no need to change other components.
Or at least my experience says it.
