Hi guys, i'm planning for a new budget pc.

Configuration in my mind.

Intel core i3 2100 - 6.5k
Gigabyte H61M-d2h - 3.3k
4GB ddr3 1333mhz - 1.5k
500gb 7200 rpm sata2 hdd - 3.7k
PSU Cosair CX430 V2 - 2.7k
Cabinate - 1k
Optical Drive - 1.1k
Dell IN2030M HD led - 6.7k
Speakers - 1.5k
UPS - 2.1k
Keyboard and Mouse - 0.6k

total 31k
that's my budget.

Following are my doubts and questions.

1) Everything is done except choosing good motherboard for an intel core i3 2100 processor. I'm really confused.
Should i go with Gigabyte GA H61M d2h or
below asrock
ASRock H61M Motherboard | Motherboard |

2) Suggestions please. Can asrock be trusted or the gigabyte?

3) Did i stated their prices correctly? Please let me know if they are wrong.

4) Yes, i cheaped out on cabinet, keyboard and mouse and speakers but i don't want to compromise with psu. So will cosair cx430 v2 be enough?

5)And also if someone can tell me that flipkart's service is it good?
Thanks in advance.


That Elusive 7850 HD
no gpu? :-o

The flipkart service is amazing, their rates? not so much. My specs can be seen in my siggy and had i ordered from Flipkart i would have had to pay 5k more than what i actually paid for it.

No particular manufacturer will have problem with drivers.

If it is a driver problem, it will be there for every card irrespective of the manufacturer.
