Guys Wanted your expert opinion and insights. This is my first PC build

1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run? (Stupid answers like 'gaming' or 'office work' will not work. Be exact. Which games? Which applications? Avoid the word 'et cetera.')
Ans: Most important for gaming. All the games, viz, Batman series, DmC, PoP, AC, and also future games such as Metal Gear Solid 5, Thief, Witcher 3, Watch Dogs. Resolution - Ultra Max settings at 1080p. Also I would be using the PC for some intensive stock trading softwares and real time trading. Basic work as MS-Office and WEb Browsing.

2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then mention this too.
Ans: approximately 50 Gs. Might extend it by 5-7K

3. Planning to overclock?
Ans: Currently no as I don't have any idea about how to do it. Might do it in future but slim chances of doing it. So NO

4. Which Operating System are you planning to use?
Ans: Windows 7 or 8 ( probably 7 as there's a lot of criticism towards 8 )

5. How much hard drive space is needed?
Ans: 1 Tb

6. Do you want to buy a monitor? If yes, please mention which screen size and resolution do you want. If you already have a monitor and want to reuse it, again mention the size and resolution of monitor you have.
Ans: Planning to plug into already purchased TV. Samsung F5000 series. 1080p Full HD. 40 inches

7. Which components you DON'T want to buy or which components you already have and plan on reusing?
Ans: Building PC from a scratch. So have to buy all the stuff

8. When are you planning to buy the system?
Ans: In next couple of weeks. might have to wait depending upon the availability of Asus R9 280X Direct CU2 Top in Calcutta

9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?
Ans: Never. Planning to do via some assembler in Calcutta ( Please recommend shops in Calcutta )

10. Where do you live? Are you buying locally? Are you open to buying stuff from online shops if you don't get locally?
Ans: Calcutta. Locally trying to buy. Can opt for Online ( FX-8320 seems to be cheaper by 800 bucks at Flipkart 9999 vs at MD computers 10800). Though I'll prefer local shops.

11. Anything else which you would like to say?
Ans: Mu ultimate motive of this build is to play most of the games at 1080p Ultra settings. I'm more or less decided upon the graphics card on R9 280X ( or should i go with 270X kinda 10k cheaper) I assume this is the best card for 1080p ultra gaming. Also will serve properly for next 2-3 years. Any one have an idea if AMD is launching R9 280 non X. This might be 4-5K lesser than R9 280X. and in benchmark might be in line with GTX 760 as the X- version easily touches the stock 770 in many games. Which CPU to take 6300 or 8320 or 8350 or should i go with intel i5.
I kinda prefer AMD as i think the future games will be better optimized for AMD hardware since they have their chip in all the three current gen console.

All the opinions are very much appreciated.
Thanks a ton

Where can i find FX-8350 at 12.5k. it is almost close to 13.8 - 14k on most of the online portal.
Also which case do you suggest. And will i require any after cooler.
I mostly will go with the build by adding extra 4Gbs of RAM though

> It may be available locally for that price. 13k is the most common local price though.

> Bit Fenix Merc Alpha.

> 4 GB ram is enough IMO. you cna go with single 4 GB stick now and order another one when you feel the need.

will go with build suggested by Cilus.
However not able to find the FX-8350 at 12.5K. might go with 8320 @10K and invest the remaining into additional 4Gb of RAM.
Is the motherboard suggested ok, like does it have extra slot for ram, crossfire in future.
Will i require a cooler too.
Also whether 520W PSU will be sufficient for the rig ?

Visit the shops in Gamesh Chandra Avenue and get the prices rather than checking only the Online price.

Check Vedant,MD Computers and Lalani Infotech in Kolkata.

if you want crossfire support be ready to spend Rs 6 to 10K more on the mainboard and Rs 3.5K more on the PSU and 5K more on Cabinet and fans.Crossfire is not a one word magic,it involves a lot more.

> It has 4 RAM slots.

> It does support crossfire but in x8/x4 mode which creates bottlenect. For multi-gpu setup you need at least x8/x8 board which will cost 5-6k extra.

> AMD's stock cooler is good enough for even mild overclocks.

> I would suggest a 600 W PSU based on extremevision's result: eXtreme Power Supply Calculator

Guys,
I'm not able to get the ASUS R9 280X DC2. The top version is available but it is very costly ( ASUS GRAPHICS CARD R9 280X DC2 TOP 3GB DDR5 ). This TOP version is ~2.2K dearer than the normal one (ASUS GRAPHICS CARD R9 280X DC2 3GB DDR5 (R9280X-DC2-3GD5 - R9280X-DC2-3GD5 - - 29,500.00)) and normal is not available.
I'm getting a got deal on HIS 280X. Is HIS a good manufacture and a reliable one.
Also will be ordering RAM n 8320 processor from flipkart as thay are currently having 10% cashback for HDFC card members

Yeah will go with HIS IceQx2 280X. though dropepd the idea from ordering from flipkart as locally buying will end up having the similar discount.
Also will i5 4570 be a better alternative than 8320. Is it worth the extra 4-5K ?

If you can accommodate the same GPU with i5 4570 then it is a viable choice, else not.

I wouldn't recommend HIS due to non availability of after sale service. Get Sapphire or Asus instead.

Get Asus or Gigabyte instead or if there is no problems with electricity in your area the you can go for Sapphire but anyways to be on the safe side its better to go for Asus or Gigabyte.
