@ lethal , go with ur intel setup, why thinking so much, you have the best gaming config for ur budget..yeah go for 9600gt, seriously you 'll regret ur decision if you buy ati 4670(hardly .5-1k price defference but whole systems performance in game will be like much less), but again buy a good PSU(avoid zebby or simply take a little risk )..
also if you are thinking of amd rig so that you can upgrade then its no sence...as even after one years or so if u think of upgrading then by that time much more good options will be available, you can sell ur current chipset and buy a better mobo for 2.5k.. these thing are considerable only if you upgrade mobo/proc < each year(+-) , but with ur budget i can assume you are not that kind of creature..
thanx man....finally a true fellow gamer who understands.....actually i will upgrade my config once a year or so....but tht's 3yrs l8r...once i get a job as a game developer.....right now my da's paying up, so i just want the basic stuff to be a decent gamer.....i got some really high end systems in my college if i want looks....i have a team in coll. and we plan to enter every game competition tht comes by so maybe if i win i can buy a good config with the prize money.......but as of now, it's just my intel config. with the PALIT 9600GT as the gfx card......no overheating issues i hope??
even if it cost 1.5k extra for 9600gt(.5k for card + 1k for PSU upgrade powersafe gold/vip 500 watt) it is still worth it..you get almost 20-30% performance increase in games for less then 10 % increase in your total budget... didn't know about x2 7750, one can makeup his mind after reading reviews on net.. btw everyone knows that overcolcking e5200 @ 3.0+ is very easy, require less fsb, any cheap mobo can do it..
Iball is kind of worser then zebby, don't rate psus based on watts, its like ur rating a gfx card based on their memory...as i said you can get either powersafe 500~ 1.5k, vip 500 watt, cm 460 watt, all around 1.5k-2.2k, moderate OCing is not harmful unless you screwup something..and that too for 3 ghz really don't think so.. my q6600 @ 3.00 ghz runs 18hours a day avg. with stock cooler..
here check out, you will get some clues.
It seems that on 12V Rail you will need 18A current.
You can check out powersafe, if its the case with that PSU, you can go with it.
which city are you from ?? if you are from nice city you won't have problems with parts i believe.
guyz....the Palit Geforce 9600gt isn't available.......so am gonna go for the Zebronics 9600gt instead.....don't think i'm a zebby fan......i'm just telling u whats available near my house......so is the zebby card good??
or shall i go for for MSI 9500gt 1gb at 5.3k.......better??
^^^ ohh you already have iball cabinet and PSU, then you may buy 4670 that way you can use your older cabi+smps(still not recommanded), 9600gt will require atleast 1.5k smps only...ur from chennai right?? then go to richie street(do some exercise) and buy the palit one, their you will get other components too which are not avaliable at ur local shop.., and performance wise 9500gt(512mb)<< 9500gt(1gb) << hd 4670 << 9600gt, btw you have net connection?? its always better to read ur own rather rely on othres, these infos are easily available on internet.. just google around for "9600gt benchmark" or "9600gt vs 9500gt" "9500gt 1 gb reviews" like that...you will get all ur answers with statics, benchmarks..
if you search for "PSU for 4670 forum" and select mode "pages from india only" probably you 'll get results like this
I HAVE A PC WITH C2D(2.66GHZ),2 GB DDR2 , ASUS P5N-MX (GEEFORCE 7050-256 MB ONBOARD)
