    Lightbulb help for buying a complete cpu

    hello, im mahi, i m new here. i wud highly appreciate some suggstions for buying a complete cpu at a budget of 45k. i sold my previous mobo, prcssr, graphics card, hdd, dvd rom, psu and ram, to buy a new rig. now only remains the casing, samsung 18.5" lcd monitor and speakers.

    i intend to buy these for building my new rig-

    gigabyte ga-p67ud3r-b3 @12k
    core-i3 2100 @10k
    4gb ram (twinmos or, a-data or perhaps apacer) @3.3k
    hitachi 1tb hdd @4.5k
    sapphire hd5670 gddr5 @8k
    dvd rw @1.6k

    and a psu that wud be the best for this specs, assuming a 500w at 4.5/5k

    the price tags is assumed by me. not totally certain with the prices of these items in the market :s



    i intend to play pretty much high end games at fairly good performance, do overclocking in the near future and run other tasks smoothly.

    the reason for buying a p67 board is for doing oc at the near future when i have enough to buy a i5 2500k, cooling items. and i also wish to get a high end graphics card and increase my ram then.

    about the graphics card i need sumthng to cope with my budget
    and interests, and that, which has a good hdmi port, which i intend to connect it with our 40" bravia family tv.

    please giv me sum suggestions, and correct my assumed price tags if im wrong. i intend to get these within this july or in the aug.

    thank u vaiya, i guess i need to re-think bout my mobo and procssr. bt i want to realy want oc for some great performance for any doable hi-tech task, if i get that h67 i wont be able to do some serious oc, right? i found that oc-ing the 2nd generation prccsrs is only pssbl with a p67 board, and others will nt do much help at it, and the prccsr has to be of a k series.

    i kinda want to make this rig a little future proof, though it isnt rely doable. and i realy think i will be able to get a i5 2500k and a high end gpu by the end of this year, and perhaps a ssd if i get a lottery then i will just sell my i3.

    thank u for ur recommendation vaiya, indeed any suggstn on amd ?

    My suggestion, WAIT. Don't get anything now, wait for the k series to arrive.

    If you get an i3 2100, even a P67 board won't be able to overclock it properly. You can take it to 3.4Ghz from 3.1, but no more. And prices are going to fall pretty soon, so getting a good mobo for now is not actually that necessary. But if you want to get it now, then here's my suggestion

    Core i3 2100 - 10k
    Gigabyte GA-H61M-S2V-B3 - 6k
    4GB DDR3 RAM - 3.4k
    Hitachi 1TB HDD - 4.6k
    Sapphire HD6850 - 15.5k
    Thermaltake TR2 500W PSU - 4.5k
    DVD RW - 1.7k

    Total sums up to be around 45.5k.

    And if you want to upgrade to an i5 2400k later, then just get another mobo, but the 6850 is worth every penny. 5670 isn't a good enough card to play all games at good enough settings at all, with a 6850, you can play all the games with a good enough performance on your 40" Bravia too. So getting a good graphics card is really useful.

    If you want an AMD system, you can get this:

    AMD Phenom II X4 955 - 11k
    MSI 760GM P33 - 4.5k
    4GB DDR3 RAM - 3.4k
    Hitachi 1TB HDD - 4.6k
    Sapphire HD6850 - 15.5k
    Thermaltake TR2 500W PSU - 4.5k
    DVD RW - 1.7k

    Total just around 45k.

    And yes, the Phenom II X4 955 is slightly better than the i3 2100. So it's your choice. If you want to get the AMD system, you can go for it now, and if i were you, i would surely do that.

    EDIT : Benchmark Differences between the Phenom and the i3:

    I'd wait till bulldozer hits, anyhow if I had that tight of a budget and I had to get something now I'd go for an x4. You can clock it to 3.8 on a stock cooler which will give you decent performance although not on par with 2nd gen core i5 but its still great for the money, 6850 is the way to go but I'd really recommend you to get a gigabyte 880GM over the 760, yes specifically the gigabyte one, its one of the best 880GM boards that can be had.
    FTW!!!!!!!!!!

    thank u so much @error and @eXsTatik vaiya, this is really very great help for me. looking at ur recommends and doing more brainstorming i find it much better to get the amd and the 6850, bang for the money. so, as for the amd, concerning the awaited bulldozer(\m/, they seem to hold more interest on adding more cores) to hit the market, sud i get it now or theres likely to fall their prices within a month or so ? and about the mobo sud i get the 760 chipset ones or the bit pricey 880 ones? by 880 , wud gigabyte 880gm-ud2h or, msi 880gm-e41 be good, or anythng else? prices nd conclusions please? and so many thanks again

    yes I myself went from a E8400 to a X4 955BE, & I really dont seem much of an upgrade in day to day tasks! I was originally geared towards the i3, but coming from an E8400, that would not have been an upgrade either i.e dual core to dual core! & thus I went for the 955 & I'm really happy with it! Great temps, clocked at 3.6GHz- idling at 38-40C & peaks at 55C

    to the OP, if you are into games, go for the i3 or the 955, but if you are into encoding & stuff, do get a quadcore! As for the 955, it's unlocked...if you have some experience with overclocking, you can easily hit 3.8GHz on the stock cooler!

    you did the ryt thing coz last gen i3's like 530/540 were nothing better than a c2d 8400...actually it is not worth comparing current AMD cpu's with SB's.atleast we should wait for the bulldozer to come......

    LOL you guys are talking as if Phenom will give 20 fps and SB will give about over 9000 fps, dont worry the differences arent that big, you guys do realize that when the CPU gaming benchmarks are done they are done in CPU dependent environments such as low texture settings and low Reso, but at peak resolutions you'll be able to play most games out there SB is by far a superior processor but newer games are getting multithreaded, so you wont really notice much of a difference between i3 and x4 I think. Anyhow for gamers I highly advice to invest on the GPU first, I dont know why people stress over the cpu so much, as if a 5830 doesnt look dated, that card cant even handle tessellation.

    As I said before if you can wait, wait for bulldozer to come out, get the Lower end (6 core) ones and you'll be happy, or maybe by that time sb prices will skyrocket downwards you never know.
    FTW!!!!!!!!!!

    If I were you, I would definitely get a quad core.

    Can't trust a dual core now a days.
    And it's not like you're gonna buy another CPU in a few years.
