P.S-This is what I made.

CPU- Intel Core-i7 (4790K)

Motherboard-Asus Z97 Sabertooth Mark1/Asrock Z97 Extreme 6/Asus Z97-K/Asus Maximus VII Formula

GPU-Zotac GTX 970 AMP! Omega

HDD-1 TB Seagate Baracudda

SSD-Samsung 850 pro 256Gb.

PSU-Corsair RM750.

Keyboard-CM Master Devastator Combo.

Cabinet-NZXT H440

RAM-Corsair Vengeance (4GBx2) 1600 Mhz

A Liquid Cooler as I will OC when it gets old...So Corsair H100i 240mm

I will be buying all the stuff from COST TO COST. I am attaching the price list of it so you get the idea why my asking price is reasonable.

I will buy Cabinet from Primeabgb ( Is it good ?) cuz I can't get the cabinet at Nehru place.

Can't attach file even the file size conforms to the forum so I am giving the link https://www.google.co.in/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CBwQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.costtocost.in%2Flist%2Fpricelist.pdf&ei=ebimVLnBB8iyuASvl4DYCQ&usg=AFQjCNHJbyXqc3fdjg8HLFrp08Cb6cG6OQ&sig2=2KAUCxbxcI9BQIsYsW77Qw&bvm=bv.82001339,d.c2E

the selected config by you is good. for the hdd, i suggest wd black 1tb. worth the money as it comes with 5 years of warranty. primeabgb is safe. dont worry.
which monitor do you have?
 
Your selected config is good. A few changes that I'd like to suggest-

> Like [MENTION=135617]rijinpk1[/MENTION] has mentioned, a WD Black will be better or at least a WD Blue. Only in case none of these are available, go for Seagate.

> H100i would be an overkill. How much do you intend to overclock BTW? Keep in mind overclocking will have no (or insignificant, at best) impact on gaming.

> NEVER EVER get this config assembled form an assembler. He'll just mess up the cable management and will make it look it look like crap. DO it yourself. It's damn easy.

Why not Seagatte If I can get at leser price ? Even both specs are same..
I had Seagatte in past, it works without a hiccup.
I will OC to around 60% so I can speed up compiling process and it really gets too hot in summers here.

And I am extremely extremely confused about the motherboard..so much that I am constantly changing my preference per day.Asus has good build-up a nice BIOS reliable..good service here...where as Asrock is good in Value for money.

Western Digital has much better after sale service. Door to door pickups, no failing of software tests required.

@op if ur suggested config is good enough value for said budget, then u will not get much help. another reason being. u will see the same stapled components by the same people and they will stick to it no matter want u say... no offence to anyone in anyway..
also big thanks for attaching the price list really appreciate it

Yeah Cost to Cost has the best price in India, I suppose.

And the great thing is that I tried to calculate the difference between the price in usa and here.It's almost identical here.

Like for instance, see the price of i7-4790k here in Amazon.COM Amazon.com: Intel Core i7-4790K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz) (BX80646I74790K): Computers & Accessories and the price I posted in first post.

many many manyfaults


op is planning to overclock
1231 is launched already
Evo 850 is also launched
you suggested water cooling with a non overclockable cpu wtf
also why 250gb ssd?
Why not HyperXFuryif you are going with a board that supports 1866MHz RAM?

I suggested the below config because OCing does not do much good and opting for Xeon CPU will be future proofing.
Made some corrections to the below config.
250GB SSD is the bare minimum these days.
Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz is enough.
Latest chipsets are running hotter so recommended water cooling.

What advantage of Xeon over i7 ?

Motherboard - Asus Maximus VII Hero

Cabinet-NZXT H440 .....It's a pretty good silent case.

Keyboard-I have decided to stick with Corsair Mechanical K70 Keyboard

I have already bought the PSU(Corsair RM 750) and GPU..cuz I got it at a very good rate

And where did you got the price of 12,500 for an Evo version..that's for pro.

you do know that Xeon is literally an i7 without k, so how is Xeon future proofing? Also nothing is future proof. ? and those extra clocks will surely help him in compiling ROMs.
LOL 250GB SSD is bare minimum? Name programs that cross 100GB that you will install on a SSD for faster loading..
When you are getting the better thing for the same price, why not go for it? That 1866Mhz sure will help.
No chipsets run hot enough that they require water cooling. Infact many people who overclock processors use air cooling.

Xeon is an i7 without the k. Its for people who dont wanna overclock and need an i7 processing power.

Also please do quote what you got for what prices, it helps us in being update with the prices :)
