Hello Folks, I am planning on building a Rig. I am a Noob, so go easy. Currently i run an extremely obsolete Pentium 4 based setup. (Got an i5 Laptop) . Need to replace this urgently. Will be using PC for Moderate gaming : FPS & RPG's. Crysis, CoD, PoP etc 720P Majorly used for internet surfing, music & movies. Budget is INR 20,000-25,000 (1 US$ = 55 INR) Will be buying everything from Mumbai India, Flipkart.com & ebay.in or a Local Vendor. I want Intel i5 thats all :biggrin: Current Equipment that will be reused: Samsung Monitor (1280 * 1024) , Creative 2.1 speakers, Keyboard, Mouse, WD Caviar Green 1 TB Desktop Internal Hard Drive (WD10EARX) bought recently. Transcend external USB Powered DVDRW. Am planning on overclocking this system in the future. I do not want to invest in a Graphics card at this point because of budget constraints. I Believe HD 4000 will be enough for most of my uses(For Now). Monitor Resolution : 1280*1024. I want to build the rig by this weekend, its that URGENT Got software discs with me. My reference system is: $ 1000 Gaming parts. http://www.anandtech.com/show/6229/midrange-system-buyers-guide/2 A local vendor has quoted me: Processor + Mobo: i5 3570k + Intel MoBo SL50K Z77 : INR 19000 RAM : 8 GB DDR3 Kingston (Model Unspecified) INR 2100 Cabinet : iBall WorkHorse http://iball.co.in/Product.aspx?c=5 INR 2500 SMPS : http://www.technostarry.com/hardware/vip-gold-500w-review/ VIP Gold 500 W INR 2500 Here are my questions: 1) I am planning on getting an i5 3570k because I am planning on future proofing the system. With overclocking I want to play the newest games on HD 4000 itself at decent FPS( Too Much to ask for ?? ). I want to Connect a GFX Card in the future for good fps. Do I really need a 3570k?? 2) Is an Intel Manufactured MoBo any good or do I have to buy an ASUS, MSI etc for overclocking? Choices are limited: http://www.flipkart.com/computers/computer-components/motherboards/pr?sid=6bo,g0i,y7i&layout=grid 3) Will the stock CPU Fan that comes with the Processor be good enough when Overclocking? If No, then what can i buy? http://www.flipkart.com/computers/computer-components/coolers/pr?sid=6bo,g0i,xcm&layout=grid What type of cooling will be required?? Is air cooling sufficient?? The room in which i am placing the rig has no Air conditioning. It gets hot in India. :biggrin: 4) RAM : I guess 8 GB will be enough. http://www.flipkart.com/computers/computer-components/rams/pr?sid=6bo,g0i,s5u&layout=grid How is the Corsair vengeance?? http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-ven...YAXY&ref=204b1a63-4ddf-4aa8-9eca-be51d7fe07bb 5) Is an SSD that essential?? I got a 60GB SSD Quoted at INR 5100 (Too Much!!!) 6) What Power Supply will I need ?? Future proofing it for a GFX Card. So is 500 W enough?? http://www.flipkart.com/computers/c...r-supply-units/pr?sid=6bo,g0i,qbk&layout=grid 7) What Cabinet??? Seriously limited options here: http://www.flipkart.com/computers/computer-components/cabinets/pr?sid=6bo,g0i,1fz&layout=grid This is decent: http://www.flipkart.com/bitfenix-me...QVDY&ref=95f22f02-6b8b-4cdd-b1b8-41e719d62947 Anything else I need to be looking at? Please help, need to finish this urgently. Thanks!!!
