    The Athlon II X4 620 is 2.6GHz AFAIK.
    Not sure about the memory, but ECS boards are pretty cool.

    HDD: I wouldn't recommend Seagate, whether 7200.12 or not as I had a prob with this very HDD too.

    Monitor: Dell 2209W or Samsung 2233SW are better than BenQ.
    DVDRW= Samsung/LG. I prefer LG
    Mouse: Never used gaming mice.
    Cabinet: Antec 300 is excellent. :)
    PSU: Great choice. :)

    Get a crossfireX enabled 785G board if you are getting one from newegg.

    SPECIFICALLY this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157167

    its simply BEAUTIFUL :D

    8x8x 2-way crossfire is common, but this has optional 4x4x4x 3-way crossfire if ever you decide to never sell old graphics cards and keep them over next upgrade. And its a NOVELITY.

    @compaddict, I don't think ECS has good support options here. YOu better pick Gigabyte or MSI or ASUS for mobo.

    Same with other products too. Better stick to those that have support centers in India.

    compy get 785G boards as they are pretty cool. ECS doesnt have wide market reach in India so better get Gigabyte/Asus/Biostar

    hmm....okay..

    but another option is this...

    Biostar TA785GE 128M @ 4.3k
    OCZ Titanium 4GB DDR2 800MHz CAS4

    Is this option good too? It's cheaper, and at FULL HD, I dunt think the gaming performance will be hit by what 1-2 fps?

    I think 1650 each for the RAM. Thats the deal I got at least. But compy, why dont u go for DDR3? Future proof IMO...

    The mobo he will buy will come with excellent onboard GFX and hence no GFX card reqd. AMD FTW!

    How is BioStar's reputation ? do they offer good support and honor warranty ?
    I dont see the reviews of mobo's made by biostar in toms , anandtech ..And Biostar offers 790 based mobos for less than 5k !! do they sacrifice on build quality ?

    So , basically i was wondering if biostar is any good compared to gigabyte or asus.

    As I said before, why NOT consider crossfirex options ?

    If you want something with Indian presence, there is Jetway.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813153141

    Its not 785G but 790GX. And instead of SB710 its SB750.

    Still its cheap at 90$.


    EDIT: it has bad reviews. so ignore that. lemme search for another option.

    Yeah, you have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131397 but it lacks onboard graphics.

    doesnt ordering on newegg via KMD still attract customs duty?
    Even if its bypassed,do gigabyte/asus honor warranty cross country or do u have to ship it back to us for repair/replace?

    On the rig topic, how abt a 790GX/X motherboard over 785 for more future options. I dont see any 785g ATX mobos here in India atleast.

    PS: am also looking for a upgrade for about the same budget as above,except I already have a 22" lcd and palit 4670 super. which leaves me effectively 30k for other components. But I'd really like a ATX mobo. So suggestions for addict will also help me out here.

    If you don't need crossfire.. then i'd recc.. Jetway HA-07 Ultra.. awesome.. f**king awesome motherboard.. it is very beautiful..

    Those Biostar motherboards are also good.. and are also ATX type... I've Biostar TA790GX BE.. and it is nice.. i was able to overclock my processor from 2.8 to 3.7 GHz using this board on air-cooling and standard heatsink..

    LG's writer is fine I guess.. you can also get a better n expensive Sony product..

    @ comp@ddict - That ECS mobo you've choosen is very good. Actually I believe it's the best micro atx mobo for AM3 procs. It packs quite a punch in it's small body. VGA, DVI, HDMI connector, plenty of USB ports, 8.1 Channel audio, Firewire, e-sata. That's enough for micro ATx mobo. It has got a LED poster soldered on the mobo and also has CMOS reset setting, power on and restart button on the mobo itself :p

    Crucial is one of the best Ram manufacturer company. If you can get hold of them go for them but I don't think crucila has any sort of service centers in here.
    If you don't want to go with crucial go with OCZ, G-Skill or corsair. :p

    For cabby - get CM690 - it's the best one you can get between 4-5K :p

    For HDD - I personally prefer seagate :p

    For Gaming Mouse - don't have enough idea though in here the I prefer Logitech :p

    For DVD RW Drive get Samsung :p

    why not ? I mean, you buy 5850 in one month, and after 1.5 years when its price touches 6K it would become a great addition.

    :lol: expected nothing lesser from you :D

    MX518 for 1.5k. Great looks, good ergonomics, extra thumb buttons, on fly sensitivity change.

    No GFX cards now of course. HD5850 will be out quite some time later and I don't know if you would jump on it as soon as it is launched or wait for prices to fall with the launch of GT300 or due to high sales.

    Glacialtech 650AA btw- the 650A is a POS. I am not sure how responsive is glacialtech RMA policy in India. I would recommend grabbing a gigabyte board but I am not too sure of ECS. coolermaster cm 690 is the default choice :p. Other than that- consider nzxt tempest. Grab mx 518- but in any case get a decent mouse mat as well or else those case feets are going to be done for and it will be wasted to spend 1.5kish on a mouse.

    Yes they sucks in latency but you are getting local warranty and peace of mind instead. If you are brave enough then get Crucial. It's one of the best :p

    That ECS mobo you choose is just perfect for your needs. Did I foget to mention that it has all solid capacitors :p

    HD5850 is the way to go and yes it's really FTW!

    BTW, do you want to wait for the green devil to release some DX11 solution :p
