Suggestion for gaming PC

Recommended Posts

I was planning to buy a new desktop in october with the release of windows 8 but my laptop died today.

 

I am looking for a descent gaming PC keeping over-clocking in my mind even though i have never ventured into this territory. I want to have a system that can support USB 3.0, PCI 3.0, Sata 6gbps.

 

Below is the build i have thought of.

 

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Pro4

Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K

Ram: Corsair Vengeance 4 GB x2 1600 Mhz

Hard Disk: Seagate Barracuda 500GB Sata 6gbps 16 MB cache

Cabinet: Cooler Master Enforcer Mid Tower

PSU:Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 500W PSU

 

I made this build keeping in my mind that I will upgrade with a SSD and Graphics card in the near future. What I am not sure of is whether the components will support each other. It would be horrible if i purchase the components and find out that i can't put them together. My budget is around Rs 45,000 ( $1=Rs 55), components prices are slightly higher in Indian rupee as compared to dollars. Any suggestions to bring down the price would be greatly helpful.

 

P.S. I already have a monitor and will purchase a UPS once i am confirmed with the build.

And with a new GPU comes the added cost of a better PSU (for most you'll want a 600-700w PSU).

 

If that is the case i can go for a 600 watt PSU. Maybe Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 600W PSU.

 

What are the best graphic cards between $50-$100? I think it can be adjusted in my current budget. Also I am thinking of CoolerMaster 431 Elite Plus cabinet instead of the one mentioned earlier. It has a front USB 3.0, hard disk docking station and a front cool blue led fan. Also it will bring down the price.

A general rule of thumb to keep in mind when choosing components for a build, is to spend the same amount of money on your GPU and you do on your CPU, in order not to bottleneck the system.

And besides that a $50-100 card will most likely not offer substantially better performance than the integrated graphics.

my suggestion would be to either

get a cheaper CPU and and slightly more expensive GPU

or go with the 2500k and run of the integrated graphics until you can afford to upgrade to a gaming graphics card.
