• CONTEST ALERT - Experience the power of DDR5 memory with Kingston Click for details

Motherboard and Processor at 15K

My current AMD X2 processor failed so needed a new motherboard and processor :
I already have: Sapphire HD5670 GPU and FSP SAGA II 500W PSU
which i bought only 6 months back so i would want mobo+processor which would run perfectly with them.
My budget is between 10-15k, sadly cant stretch beyond that

Thanks in advance!!!!!

I Need a motherboard and process at around 15000
sadly cant stretch the budget beyond that
also i already have:
Sapphire HD5670
FSP SAGA II 500W PSU
so i would preferrably require a mobo which doesnot have a integrated GPU but if no good options are there then its not an issue

Thanks in advance!!!

What kind of Ram you are having, DDR2 or DDR3? If uou are planning to use your existing ram then we have to suggest accordingly.

If you have DDR2 I guess it would be better to sell it off and go with DDR3 considering they are dirt cheap.
i5 2400 - 9.3K
2x2 GB DDR3 Ripjaws x - 1.9K
Intel DH61WW LGA 1155 Motherboard - 3.2K

Total: 15k Approx

Phenom II 955 BE - 5.8K
Gigabyte GA-880 GM - USB3 - 4.8 K

= 2k Less Cost than Intel One.

I do not intend in keeping my DDR2 RAM
my only concern r that it must support my HD5670 and run on 500W

Also i have no problem with Amd solution as before this i had AMD X2 and it worked with no problems for 3+ years

I do plan to overclock

What about
i5-2500k + Intel DH61WW LGA 1155 Motherboard
will it be close to 15k and not beyond 16k
i do not overclock so its a non issue
also can it run on 500W psu

sorry not i5-2500k but i5-2500

ya you can go with i5 2500 and cost may be within 10k but i doubt about its availability.
so better to go with i5 2400.

i wanted to know is it worth waiting for new amd range which is coming. If yes how long. Also is it possible to fit in i5 2500 with a mobo and still be withing 16k. M asking as i saw in some websites that the performance diff between 2500 and 2400 is greater compared to the price diff. Is it true.also could any one suggest an amd solution within 16k

only time can say that was it worth for waiting bulldozer or not.but still my heart says it is worth.so if you can wait for 1-2 months.for right now if you are in hurry you can do one thing you can buy mobo and all for the bulldozer with a cheap amd processor and later you can upgrade it to BD.but still i suggest you to wait.

If you want to overclock then forget about Intel.

i5 2500k has to be coupled with a P67 or Z68 Mobo for OC and a decent mobo will cost near 10k odd taking Proccy + Mobo to 20K.

If you can wait then Wait till BD Comes or else Go with the AMD Solution I gave. The Mobo is compatible with BD so no worries and you can OC that Proccy like Hell. :D

hmm you will overclock or not?

I'm not a fan of high-end CPU and el cheapo motherboard combinations. Do get a decent mid-range H67 chipset motherboard around ~6k.

Sorry for the conflicting requirements...at first i thought about overclocking as i did before. But then i understood my budget was 15k not 50k :) So finally m not gonna do any overclocking.
And yes i agree i dont want an el cheapo mobo to ruin the fantastic processor. M just asking if its possible to fit in a decent mobo with i5 or any amd solution.

Well it has been more than a year for this request but i was able to survive with my brothers laptop.. but now i need to upgrade my pc asap.
The budget is same as 15k for mobo+pc and i did some searching and found something wierd that....
Core i5 3450 was priced at Rs. 11766 and
Core i5 2400 was priced at Rs. 11854 (source Flipkart)
Now from quick browsing the spec i found that both are similar. Then how come an older generation processor be costlier? am i missing something.

Thanks vkl for the suggested motherboard it was getting confusing searching for it... but still i am puzzled by the price anomaly, hope someone could clear that for me...

Online vendors can show different prices which can be bit abnormal depending upon various factors.This is not a thing to ponder over.
Look at local market prices which are more stable or look at hardware specific sites like smcinternational.in to get the idea of pricing of components.
In general there you won't find such anomaly.

So the mobo+cpu is done now about RAM.....i was suggested Corsair/GSKILL 4GB 1333 Mhz
But i also found Kingston one with same pricing but with lesser latency .... so should i go for the latter or for the former
If any better suggestion plz do tell..my budget is 1.5K and i dont OC
Thanks in advance..
