guys, that was the incident which made me buy the APC UPS. Before that I wasn't having any UPS.
And feedback about the config?

^^ That brand well known ( or at-least known to may ) but as Skud has said it's not easy to get - can't find it on sell on local comp bazzar but if anyone is interested delta peripherals have two Numeric UPS - The 600VA one costs Rs. 1500 and 1KVA one costs Rs. 4550 ;-)

And with massive shipping charges, I don't think they would be worthy enough. That's the biggest problem with buying heavier items online.

Re: PC Buying Guide - July 2011

I think dealers should export numeric ups more & more to the local vendor to make it available for the general peoples.

like NZXT cabbys are still unavailable at Kolkata :-(

Re: PC Buying Guide - July 2011

Jas, I think some modification is needed in the 25K config. Currently we are receiving lots of requests for gaming rig under 25K...and as per the current rig in our guide which is not possible. So I have done some minor updates on it.

Here is my suggestion:

CPU |AMD Athlon II X4 635| 4K
Mobo| Gigabyte GA-MA78LMT-S2| 2.5K
Ram| G-skill F3-10600CL9S-2GBNT| 0.7K
HDD| Seagate 500 GB 7200.1| 1.9K
PSU| FSP SAGA II 500W| 2K
Cabinet| Zebronics Bijli w/o PSU| 1K
ODD| LG 22X DVD R/W| 0.9K
Display| Acer P206HV 20"| 5.1K
Input Device| Logitech MK100| 0.5K
GPU| MSI HD 6670 1 GB GDDR5| 5.4K
Speaker| Altec Lansing BXR1220| 0.7K
UPS| Microtek 600VA| 1.2K
Total|---------------| 25.9K

The reason being is currently the 25K config is designed for Office work and multimedia. Now in office and day to day work there is hardly any difference between a i3 and Athlon II X4. Now on that config, only Bluray playback is possible in decent level, not anything else as the IGP of 780 Chipset HD 3200 is too weak for it. Even it will fail short in HD playback if some post processing filters are applied. So my suggesion is to create a rig which will have enough CPU power for the day to day activity and very decent GPU power for enhanced multimedia... even very good gaming.
So have chosen Athlon II X4 + HD 6670 + Acer P206HV combination. It is enough for day to day applications and 6670 will provide enough kick for gaming in 1600X900 resolution in medium to higher settings. It has performace closer to HD 6750 or 5750.

Let me know your feedback.

nice one cilus. i will add it.

BTW that i3 rig was just a low cost sandy bridge rig. some demanded it.

He isnt an OCer...he is a wannabe who has messed up notions about PCs.

Idk if I can recommend gamma, having never used an NZXT Case before.
Personally I do not find myself comfortable using a small case (read mid-tower).The HAF 912 is an exception because it has much better airflow(huge vents) than anything else of its class in the market, not to mention its amazing value(since the HAF series came out, i started disliking even the CM 690).

In a perfect world I'd get an 800D, but it has much worse airflow than the HAF X for GPUs and the DF-85 looks mofo-ing ugly.

Noctua D14 is great, but get him good fans for it!(the stock ones dont have much airflow). Look at scythe's 140mm range and get him fans with high pressure and airflow above 75CFM.

PS- I want to see the burnt pics of his System if he gets a stupid PSU.

Welcome to TDF. Better make a separate thread filling up the template for your requirement.

Your config is not at all optimize, because the CPU and mobo you've selected is outdated and already reached End of Life. Create a separate thread and we will entertain your query properly. Fill up the questions specified in the thread http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/pc-components-configurations/128247-pc-build-questionnaire-template.html and post it in the new thread.

Re: PC Buying Guide - July 2011

^^ IF you you are looking for a well built mobo and don't care about Intel quick Sync then get P67 sabertooth - the components and build quality is top notch. Z68 V PRo has good build quality with quality components and let you use Intel Quick Sync - so the end decision is yours ;-)

BTW, as there' some multi GPU configs in here I think this will be really useful ;-)

Re: PC Buying Guide - July 2011

I was just peeping the gods game machines. why why limit at all with poor speakers, poor lcd.
get a huge samsung 65 lcd, i think that costs some 4 Lakhs, so make 4 for those. or may be 6 of those
so that's about 6x4=24 Lakhs display

And sound, common, throw in some denons, whardale, avant grade speakers, easily costing up to 1 Million $

So the total rig, and a nice room[your home] tailored for gaming, for the whole rig, add 20 Million $$

Perphaps that's no good, you want to game on the Moon, pay NASA a few Billions and fly off ;)
So there you, don't limit your imagination brother.
