There is no GPU in that config :|

Also , no to the PSU listed.

Yeah, OP has stated SMC didn't give the quotes for GPU.


Look at the following config:-

AMD Athlon II X3 445 => 3400
Asus M4A88TMLE => 3900
Cooler Master Elite 310 => 1500
FSP Saga II 500W SMPS => 2000
Corsair Vengeance 4GB Single => 2500
Benq G2222HDL => 8300
MSI 6670 => 5500
Lite-on DVD Writer => 900
Logitech KB & Mouse => 800

TOTAL 28800/- just 800 bucks over your budget.

Prices taken from SMC website only.

I don't have the game, but AFAIK any Call of Duty series game won't be a problem.


Treatment in progress...
Yeap final hoo gaya but one more and final query does black oops run good on this config

The cpu and ram are fine for the game...but imo...the gpu may be a bit hard pressed in teh 1080p gaming dept....u might want to look at a HD5770 at least..better still, GTX4601gb or HD6850/6870 if budget permits...


Now i am going to place my order tomorrow at smcinternational.in i have decided to go fo for follwin config
amd athlon ll x2 445-3400rs
asus m4a78Lt-mle-2600rs
2x2 corsair ddr3 2gb vs2gb 1333 d3g-2050rs
wd scrorpio blue 500 gb sata hd(wd5000bpvd)-1950rs
lite on dvd writer-900rs
msi 6670-5500rs
dell in2020m-6280rs
coolar master elite 430 with side window-2675rs
fsp saga || 500 w power supply-1995rs

check d config that there is any compatibility issue with parts that i have selected?

Why going for older 780 chipset? Rest of the parts are OK. Also you may want to put a single 4gb module for keeping the option for future upgrades.


Hi dude ok now i will buy
corsair memory 4gb ddr3 memory cmv4gx3m1a1333c9- 2000rs.
I am only going to use this rig for gaming. now frankly speaking my computer hardware knowledge is not good. Does this older chipset create any hindrance to my gaming expirence? If not than what is the need of buying expencive mobo as i am going to use this rig only for gaming

Guys plz reply does this 1333 mhz ram are compatible with this mobo and proccy and does 780g chipset based mobo affect my gaming experince as it is an older chipset.

^^ just get Athlon II X3 445 + HD6670. go for Elite 310 cabby. rest all is ok.

no won't cause any problem. but at Asus site its written this board supports DD2 but at SMC as well as newegg it is mentioned that it uses DDR3 slot.

That is something I have never heard of.

I mean how can the official specification be wrong?


Elite 310 will save you around 1k which you can spend somewhere else
like even better GPU such as HD 5770 @ 7k ot HD 6770 @ 7.5k
