    8GB ram
    HP2228h 22" Monitor 1680x1050

    1. How is the build?any suggestions?
    2.Which PSU should i use so that i have no problems even if i overclock? wattage and brand.
    3. I have seen few versions of the gpu - Twinfrozer/ DirectCUII/ Hawk edition, which one is the best? i have seen that HD7850 is new and better... but i know that AMD has driver issues and other problems..so people please tell me bad points about HD7850 so that i dont change my mind.
    4. I'll be using that pc and monitor... how many VA UPS should i use?
    5. Do i need to use a Good thermaltake Casing? Can i use normal casings?
    6. Will i be able to play upcoming games like (GTA V, WATCHDOGS, FAR CRY 3, NEED FOR SPEED Most wanted (2012) and others) at HIGH settings?

    Thanks

    1)build is good...but taking a hd7850 will give u a performance increment nd less power consumption...
    2)Thermaltake tr2 550w...
    3)take the 7850 instead of 560ti...so far driver issues kono new user der kach shuni nai...
    4)dont have much idea on that...but so far as i know...1000va is more than enough
    5)ya...thermaltake or any good branded casing is amust..coz if u r getting these awesum oc-ing cpu nd a good mobo...ventilation in the casing should be decent...i would suggest taking the tt spacecraft or the inWin Mana 136...
    6)yeah u can..but some games may stutter coz both 7850 nd 560ti are not fully capable of running games at ultra in 1080p..which in ur case is almost 1080p(1050)
    Hope it helps...

    1. nice build,
    2. TT 550W/600W would be enough.
    3. personal opinion take the DCUII & haven't heard any driver issues so far. & yes 7850 will be better than 560ti.
    4. take 1200VA UPS but most important thing take an ups that has power factor of 0.8 minimum.( like mercury ) dont buy power guard,it has a power factor of 0.6 only. u can also buy rahimafroose.
    5.as u wanna overclock,so it will produce a lot of heat, so u better take one casing which got good cooling solution.
    6. yuup u will be able to run these games at full HD

    one more thing take minimum 1600MHz RAM.

    lol, but yeah avoid 560ti; get 7850 specially the sapphire 7850. It has much better power consumption and performance plus its on the level of GTX 570!

    well...with a core i5 3450..a B75 board..nd a HD7950...u can make ur pc future proof for 2+ years...buying an 3570k is foolishness...coz the Haswells r coming in 2013...so buying this costly cpu is gonna cost u mentally in the long run!!...
    oh nd yeah...a powerful cpu doesnt make a pc gaming proof for long run...a powerful gpu has this ability..Hope u get it!!!
