+1 to this config. [MENTION=129451]aditya[/MENTION]k649 I think you should include Sapphire r9 290 tri x in this configuration for 32.8k
For monitor OP can get Dell U2412.

But shouldn't the processor be balanced with a good mobo
what if I choose a i5 4570 with a gigabyte z87d3hp it will cost 23k with a better balanced board.

Z87 board are meant for overclocking. Using them with a non k processor is simply a waste of money. B85M D3H motherboard is good enough. If you are worried go for a H87 board.

For r9 290 are there any after market cooling solutions like accelero available in india.
Since u own a mini atx board did you come across any problem like heat while using it.

Get the r9 290 tri x by Sapphire. It is the best VFM custom cooler card in the r9 290 series.
And yeah the combination will work fine. And I have not faced any heating issues with my board.

I am not aware about Accelero but NZXT Kraken GPU Bracket is available. But going for the trix will be more cost efficient

Xeon 1230v3 is like a i7 3770k without the iGPU. Xeon works fine with B85 mobos. Z87 chipset is used for overclocking.

If OP doesn't get the Sapphire Tri X one, he can actually make omelettes on the GPU :lol:

btw, its the Sapphire Tri X only, its ~30k on mdcomputers(if you email them)

Right off the assembly line
What about sound? Do you plan to invest separately for sound support? You will need to add another 5K minimum for a good sound card. Or you could try some new mobos that offer inbuilt HD sound. I picked up Biostar Hi-Fi Z97WE exactly for this reason
