Hi guys

Iam upgrading my old HP Pavilion t630i machine and iam not sure which of the below configuration to go
My Budget - 25 to 28k (max, not a penny more. Total budget 30K, need 2K for Windows 8 Pro upgrade purchase)
Chassis, HDD and Monitor using the old one.

Config 1:
Intel i5 3570
Intel DH77EB
8GB RAM
Nvidia GTX 550ti

Config 2:
AMD FX 6100
ASUS M5A88-M
8GB RAM
Nvidia GTX 550ti (if it works or HD 7770)

As for the AMD config, a better motherboard would do, since the one i have selected does not have eSata port which i really like to have.
One limitation that i have is the Chassis can support only Micro ATX or uATX.

Thanks
Ram

Config 1 is far better, based on the CPU selection. But why GTX 550 Ti, get HD 7770. Also don't forget, you need a good PSU too, consider Corsair CX 430V2 @ 2.6K

Thanks Cilus.

I had to restrict my budget even further down to 20K MAX.
PSU - Crosair CX 430V2 - 2.8K
GPU - GTX650 - 7.9K

SO it leaves me with 10K for RAM, CPU and MoBo, any suggestions please...
I was thinking of FX 4100, ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3, 4GB DDR3-1333

Thanks

a better combo would be-
pentium g630-3.5k
gigabyte ga b75m d3h -4.5k
cx 430 v2 -2.5k
2x4 gb corsair value-2.6k
zotac gtx 650ti-10.2k
total-23.3k
or you can invest in a i3 3220 for 7.5k

ramhairs, why you are choosing the worst GPU available at your budget all the time? 1st GTS 550 Ti and now GTS 650! DOn't you read the reviews a little before making your choice.

AMD 7770 GFX + G630 WILL BE ENOUGH
OR AMD 7770 GFX + I3 will also work which provides cpu power that's it.
