Peace guys. First of all, thank you Rahul, Jaskanwar and Sam Shab - I'm sure your posts will be helpful to others as well. Now, I was seriously considering to raise the budget after pulsar_swift's post, I'm either getting a Core i7 or 1090T setup.

One thing that you guys might have missed is that this rig isn't only for gaming but would also be my workstation - graphical purpose and some multi-threaded apps I don't think would be appropriate to mention on this board.

Lastly, I *may* overlock but stability could be an issue and at this moment my budget won't allow a cooler (like h212+ or h20).

Processor:
Intel Core i7 930 - Rs. 15,000.00
Motherboard:
MSI X58 Pro-E - Rs. 10,400.00
Monitor:
Dell 24" S2409W / Dell 24" G2410 / Dell 23" SP2309W - Rs. 14,400.00
GPU:
MSI 5850 Twin Frozr II - Rs.16,750.00
RAM:
Gskill 6GB 1600 DDR3 Trident Kit - Rs.10,000.00
HDD:
WD 1 TB Caviar Black HDD - Rs.5,100.00
ODD:
LiteOn 24x DVD/RW - Rs.1,200.00
Cabinet:
Cooler Master 690 II Advanced - Rs.5,600.00
PSU:
Corsair TX650 - Rs.6,700.00
Keyboard / Mouse:
Logitech Wireless Desktop MK320 - Rs.1,800.00
UPS:
APC 1.1KVA UPS - Rs. 4,800.00

Total = 92k. Budget: 88k.

So, let's see, other than switching to a Phenom x6 setup, where could I save in that rig? I see there are some options like:

HDD:
Seagate Barracuda 1 TB | Price: Rs.3,600 | Saving: Rs.1,500
PSU:
Corsair 550w | Price: Rs.4,900 | Saving: Rs.1,800
Monitor:
Benq G2220 22 | Price: Rs.8,000 | Saving: ~Rs.6500

P.S. Any of you guys know a mid-range IPS monitor?

Looks good to me.
I would still say go for 2 WD 500GB HDD in RAID - It will cost Rs Rs 4200 - Savings - Rs 900
TX 650, will leave room for future additions or OCing. Downgrade to VX 550 will make it just enough.
No need to spend 14K on monitor. Spend 9K any model which you like and save 5K.

Total Savings = 900+5000 = Rs 5900

raphical purpose and some multi-threaded apps I don't think would be appropriate to mention on this board.
you can't mention here then can you PM me the apps as its going to better if they are going to run better on i7 or 1090T.
So, let's see, other than switching to a Phenom x6 setup, where could I save in that rig?
switching to phenom is a better option as you can save a lot in RAM & mobo & can have a good OC as you will be able to buy a HSF which in turn will give you a better overall performance even in games!

HDD:
Seagate Barracuda 1 TB | Price: Rs.3,600 | Saving: Rs.1,500
you'll have a decrease in performance.
Monitor:
Benq G2220 22 | Price: Rs.8,000 | Saving: ~Rs.6500
better not to go for this as its a TN panel.


I would still say go for 2 WD 500GB HDD in RAID - It will cost Rs Rs 4200 - Savings - Rs 900
i wudn't recommend RAID for a workstaion as RAID has higher chances of data loss!
No need to spend 14K on monitor. Spend 9K any model which you like and save 5K.
as this is a workstation it is better to get a IPS panel as you have to play with colours & for this IPS panel is going to better & it won't come cheap!

Do you recommend any motherboard for Phenom x6 1090T? Just so that I can get a quick price quote from SMC, need to see how much am I exactly gonna save here.

Absolutely, IPS has more colour accuracy. I've been looking at these two monitors: Dell 2209WA and U2311H - the latter one is about jaw-dropping Rs.14k but have to confirm the availability in Delhi. Sent an email, let's see.

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T: Rs.15,000
ASUS M4A89GTD-PROUSB3: Rs10,800.00

Meh, about the same cost. I guess I could save by degrading the RAM to 4GB, and that's it.

Anyway, got the price quote from SMC:

Processor:
Intel Core i7 930 - 14500
Motherboard:
MSI X58 Pro-E -- 10500
Monitor:
Dell ST2410 -- 12500/-
Dell G2410 -- 15500/-
Dell SP2309W -- 14250/-
Dell U2311H -- 13500/- (Available from next week.)
GPU:
MSI 5850 Twin Frozr II -- 16700/-
RAM:
Gskill 6GB 1600 DDR3 Trident Kit -- 10100/-
HDD:
WD 1 TB Caviar Black HDD -- 5100/-
ODD:
LG 24x DVD/RW -- 1150
Cabinet:
Cooler Master 690 II Advanced -- 5600/-
Cooler:
Hyper 212+ -- 1900/-
PSU:
Corsair TX650 / 550W --NA
Coolermaster GX 650/550W -- 5600/4500/-
Keyboard & Mouse:
Logitech Wireless Desktop MK320 -- 1500/-
UPS:
APC 1.1KVA UPS -- 5000/-

Apparently U2311H is the best choice, I'll just pre-order it and pick up later next week. And, really, surprised that they don't have Corsair PSUs in stock. :(

Ha ha, corsair PSU's not in stock. SMC international in the main distributor for cooler master. It is expected. DELL U2311H, there is a thread on TE where buygaming stuff is running a pre-order, read it, it seems to have few problems. Which one are you going for X6 or i7. If i were you i will pickup i7. Your choice.
