avoid asus mobo. get Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R @ 13.6k.
get WD 1TB Black @ 5k or 2*WD 500GB blue @ 4k
also this rig is costing 60k, dont you need a monitor??
You can lower your price by going for Core i7 930 which is almost 2k cheaper than Core i7 950. There may be some performance difference in gaming, but in 3D applications...I don't think it is really gonna matter.
Here is a review of the ASUS TUF Sabertooth X58.Sorry! I didn't know that!
So this is what I've got so far:
Core i7 950 @ 14.5k
ASUS Sabertooth X58 @ 14.3k
Zotac GTX 460 1GB @ 12.7k
4 * 2GB DDR3 1333Mhz @ 9.2k
NZXT Gamma @ 2.1K/CM Elite 430 @ 2.6k
Corsair VX550W @ 4.7k
Seagate 7200.12 1TB @ 2.9k
LG H55N @ 1k
Can you guys pls suggest alternatives for mobo in case of unavailability of Sabertooth?
& which RAM should I get? GSkill, Kingston, Transcend, Corsair?
About the PSU, how's the new Corsair GS600? Is it available all over India? Or should I go ahead with the VX550?
& do I need a cooler for this build? I'm not gonna OC but I tend to leave my pc on 24x7!

You should get a 3x2GB KIT (3 sticks of 2GB in one packet) preferably or 2 such packets to be able to use triple channel memory configuration.
If price difference between 1333Mhz kit and 1600 Mhz kit is not much, buying 1600 Kit is preferable if you can afford it.
Not sure if price below is uypdated/latest but posting just for a rough idea-
CORSAIR TR3X6G1600C9 Lifetime warranty
Hmm! But 6 sticks would occupy all slots on UD3R & I dont want that! So I think I'll try to get 4GB sticks!^^ i think the 6 stick of 2Gb each will cost you less. but can't say anything about performance.
Thanx, Jasi!for ups - APC 1100VA @ 4.8k or Numeric 1KVA @ 4.2k
go with any you like(vx550 or gs600)
Thanx, Jas! But unfortunately ATI cards dont' go very well with Vue software! So I'd have to get nVidia only! I've asked him abt others availability, like Zotac or Palit, hopefully I'll be able to get one!check if MSI HD5850 TWIN FROZR II is available for 15k or MSI GTX460 Cyclone for 13k..
or get msi hd5850 twin frozr II from smcinternational.in for 15k or cyclone one for 13k..hawk will be for 14k or so. so better get hd5850 twin frozr II, oc it and see it blow away hawk..twin frozr got good cooler
Yes, Sam, with tax! & I've no experience of online buying so I think I'll ask dealer to get it for me! I'm thinking btween Gamma & M59!^^ prices are good. including tax? NZXT you need to order from Prime ABGB or IT Wares (both from Mumbai).
