> Use of dual HDD - to store more data.

> Use of SSD + HDD - to install OS on SSD and store user data on HDD. SSD being much faster eliminates the delays in various OS' tasks.

> There is no such thing as 'AMD is better' or 'Intel is better than AMD'. I suggest you read this thread- http://www.digit.in/forum/pc-compon...c-buying-guide-suggested-configs-2015-q1.html

> "recommend high Ghz model" and "Graphics: 2GB and more (if under budget/if needed)" - Again, go through the above mentioned thread.

they are more or less the same. the only difference is the number of fans(one higher in spec 03). if you already have the case fans, you can skip spec 03. if the price is higher for just 1 more fan, you can skip it. if the price difference is very close, you can consider spec 03. also have look at antec gx700 and gx900. and if you can go near 5k there is nzxt phantom h240.

No,mate what i actually meant is Spec 03 has two variants one with 2 Orange Led fans priced @4k on primeabgb and another with 3 Red Led fans priced @4.5k on itwares.com,so why does it have two variants when price of Spec 02 Red led case is 3800 with same specs as that of spec 03 orange led case?
Really confused Pls. Clarify asap!

See, since those 2 are exactly the same, you can choose whatever you like depending on the money you have. If you are going to spend 4.5k+, nzxt h240 was available for around 4.8k.

does OP needs a betger clocked processor? If yes then i'd suggest togo with M5A97 R2.0 EVO and overclock that FX6300. Else everything is good. Also get HyperXFury if you get m5a97 r2.0 evo

WD Blue, VP450p and B85M D3H sure are priced very good. Specially WD Blue.
Btw you asked for cabinets like SPEC 02/03 and bought a 311? :/

anyways, good purchase. But is this a thread hijack? Because you aren't the OP :p also upload pics on imgur/puush and link back here, TDF attachments stopped working a long time ago
