good budget and i'd suggest a Quad core instead - which will be great for some near future games

Board=MSI P7N Sli if u wanna add another gfx card , otherwise Abit IP 35 PRo

no sli for me :)
and msi is better than abit.they use solid state capacitors,which last longer and perform better.as for quad,i dont need one since the only game that supports quads w/o modding is crysis and crysis performs beter in duals.and i need specs for case and everything that goes in it.

also i will OC a lot cpu 4ghz and gpu to as much as possible without pencil mods or volt mods:D

Nice budget!
Well, MSI Platinum P35 Combo + Q6600 should be a nice combination. Regarding RAM, go for atleast 2GB from Patriot/Corsair. Yep, MX-II combined with U120E should be good. Btw, also lookout for CoolerMaster Gemini II or Hyper 212. They are nice in performance.
Regarding GPU, go for Palit 9600GT Sonic edition, if possible. The card is way better than other OC versions. Btw, with that budget, i suggest to go with a 8800GTS 512MB. Way better than a 9600GT! One more thing, make sure u invest in a good Cabinet, like CoolerMaster Cosmos!

your configuration is very good but if you would like to make some changes will give you better performance


go for ati cd 3870 or 3850 this graphics card is better than 8800 and 9600
go for q 6600 instead of 8400 it's more future proof.

Abit Ip35-E

Rest all same.

@monkey:so i should go for those fans instead of scythe?what do they cost?
@nish:i dont want something future proof now for i will go for LGA1336 after 2-3 yrs.i abit is hard to find in kolkata.msi has better customer support.i am not saying that abit is bad,but i prefer msi.WHATS THE COST OF THE HDD?has it got 16mb buffer?
 

nish_higher

Wise Old Owl
yes it has 16mb buffer and will cost just about the same.
E8400 is good but if you gotta overclock it to the max ,u'd need a good mobo.if its MSI i'd suggest going for a P35 NEo combo atleast or a P7N Sli platinum.
the board you selected does not seem to have any good capacitors or overclocking features.

Those scythe fans are good .i have the same thing with my thermalright 120E
