Thnx guys for your quick replies.
I would like to know a AMD equivalent too.
And even a 18.5 inch monitor will do..BTW how much is the difference.
I mean in viewing not in price.
And how is coolmaster elite 310?
And how is Bijli if I get it..Though I doubt it.
Thnx RiGOD for your config..Its on my mind.

Hey everyone would love to have more replies/configurations.

^^The AMD counterpart is AMD Athlon II 260. It overclocks well but gaming performance of G620 is far better.

CM Elite 310 is a good case but for your configuration a Bijli or even an ordinary one is enough.

For monitor consider BenQ GL930A.


Thnx RiGOD
However I am planning to build my rig without the graphic card for the time being and would like to have a nice PC.
Too much cutting in the present scenario.
GPU can be bought later too.

Now tell me a decent configuration and which should be later compatible with the card.

According to me this would be a killer config.

AMD 3.6 GHz AM3+ FX4100 -- 6200

ASUS M5A88-M -- 5400

G.Skill Value DDR3 4GB -- 1200

WD Caviar Blue 500 GB HDD -- 4200

Asus DRW-24B3ST -- 1100

FSP Saga II 500 -- 2300

NZXT Gamma or CM Elite 430 -- 2500-3000

Any 20 inch monitor -- 6000

Logitech MK200 -- 750

Will the present PSU i.e. FSP Saga II 500 be enough?
Now the big question.Will everything be compatible?
I think yes but I will leave it to pros.


laborare est orare
The Processor, FX4100 actually spoils the party. The lower end FX processors are disaster, FX 4100 being slower than older Phenom II X4 955 in almost all the benchmarks including gaming. Also at the same price range, Intel Core i3 2100 bats the FX 4100 in all cases.

So get the following CPU/Motherboard combination:-

Intel Core i3 2100 @ 6K
Intel DH67CL-B3 @ 5.6K

^^How about using a quad-core APU for the time being and adding a GPU later? That'll last longer considering the fact that games will use more than two cores in future right?


@Cilus Oh man..I didn't checked those benchmarks.Glad you told me..
i3 beats it in all areas.Thnx for telling..Will definitely go with i3..
What about the other config.Is it cool?

@RiGOD I was talking abt that only but Cilus gave me an important info. about it.BTW can you recommend a quad core in that budget??
