  1. What would be your actual budget? And is the 960/monitor also in this budget or are those already bought/payed for?
  2. The monitor and 960 are also in this budget, I am building it from scratch. I am not in US so prices will differ. However you can still suggest me from price range $1000 to 1200 or lesser. Thank you.

  5. i7 is very expensive 5th gen and 4th gen.

    I want a non K CPU, which can handle gtx 960 and 1080p gaming.

    please suggest me a compatible MoBo as well.

    Thanks.

    mother board it related to cpu choose 5th gen i5 than dont go for i3 and and i think gigabyte motherboard will good enough
  7. Can you suggest me the right product model number. As I am based in India.


    So no i5 gen CPUs yet.

    Please give me some other option.

    What do you think of i5-4460 and can you suggest me a budget motherboard for this.

    Alright sweet, lets get to it then.

    CPU: i5-4590. (If you ask me and I am sure alot would agree with me, this CPU is the best bang for buck. It got great reviews and most users are happy.)
    GPU: MSI NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960 Gaming 2 GB GDDR5
    MOBO: MSI H97 GAMING 3 (Pairs nicely with your GPU/CPU and got great reviews)
    RAM: 8 GB DDR3 1600Mhz from hyperx/corsair (cant really go wrong when it comes to RAM as long as you dont pick ddr2/4)
    HDD: Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM ( would work lovely and is overal a loved HDD)
    MONITOR: BenQ RL2455HM 24 inch LED
    PSU: be quiet! Power Zone 650W
    CASE: If you ask my personal preffrence I will always say the H440 from nzxt but cases are something very personal so I would suggest to browse some sites and see if you can find something you like.

    One more thing I would reccomend is adding an SSD in your build, something like the Samsung 850 EVO, 250 GB. Once you go SSD you never go back.

    CPU: i5-4590 $199.99
    GPU: MSI NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960 Gaming 2 GB GDDR5 $214.99
    MOBO: MSI H97 GAMING 3 $119.99
    RAM: 8 GB DDR3 1600Mhz Corsair/hyperx $55.99
    HDD: Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM $54.99
    MONITOR: BenQ RL2455HM 24 inch LED $199.99
    PSU: be quiet! Power Zone 650W $126.87
    SSD:Samsung 850 EVO, 250 GB $99.99
    CASE: -

    This would be a total of $1071 but it does not include a case yet. Prices will ofcourse be diffrent depending on where you are from.
  9. Spot on answer my friend. Exactly what I was looking for.


    Thank you my friend. Appreciate it. Cheers!

    its on you if want a gaming pc than you should not go for i3 processor and mother board are support only a supportive cpu like if i want i7 cpu than i have to buy a mother board which supports i7 and ddr5 you have to google it but first of all you have to choose a cpu first Intel Core i5-4670K Quad-Core Desktop Processor 3.4 GHZ 6 MB Cache - BX80646I54670K Gigabyte GA-Z97M-D3H - Gaming Motherboard - Z97 chipset i recommend be care full when buying a motherboard some motherboards dont have graphic card slots
  11. Thank you. I will keep that in mind

    remember that a high power gpu and cpu will produce so much heat you have to buy a case which will keep cool your hardware case is a imp thing choose a case which has inbuilt two fans at 2200 rpm
  13. I have corsair 200r in mind, with i5 4590, gtx 960, MSI H97 GAMING 3 , psu corsair cx 500.


    what do you think now?
  14. Yup that would fit and looks good overall! Good luck building!
  15. you guys are PROs and awesome.

    thank you for your time.

    happy gaming.

    btw which games are hot now are you are playing? multiplayer and singleplayer.
    let me know.
  16. You are welcome, at the moment are the games I play the following: The Witcher 3, Ark: survival evolved, Arma 3, Cs:GO, league of legends and GTA 5. All are nice games and highly enyojable!
  17. well all this games mentioned will work on my new build that you have suggested?

    I love arma 3, bf 4 and hardline and GTA 5 is just awesome, specially the PC version.


    thanks buddy.
  18. All the games shall work nicely on that build, perhaps not all on ultra, but still.
  19. ULTRA doesn't matter as long as the frame rates are smooth. High settings with 1080p also looks damn cool
  20. Games mostly depend on the GPU, so if I replace the GTX 960 with GTX 970, and the same other configuration like cpu and ram and mobo. Will Be able to play in ultra all the latest games at 1080p

    Games not Depend on gpu ITs motly depend on your cpu and display gpu is advance tech high shadder ram which provides you a external memory to load all that shadder and effects of any game however its just work like a ram with high performance games performance mostly depends on your cpu like if i have a 5ghz pro cpu
    and 1gb normal gpu the game still run at good fps but if i have a 1.5 ghz pro cpu and a 3 gb boost graphic card
    the game still dont run every game need equation of CGRH - CPU,GPU,RAM,HARDDisk but while play game its CGR only hard disk only for storage . SUBScribe my Channel GAMEPLAY on youtube for gaming tutorials

    Dude, NO. You have been talking some real hardcore BS in your last posts. Felixwen, if you think the gtx970 fits in your budget I would highly reccomend getting it, got it myself and couldnt be happier.

    m not talking bs its truth and having a high end gpu with low cpu doent boost anything try this theory on yourself having a gpu is good and ideal for gaming but cpu is most imp thing in pc doent matter what are you doing cpu needed in all work and a gaming performance highly depends on cpu speed and if you call it bull Sh***T than i cant help you out ---------------truth cant be changed-----------
  24. MrHiddeS you make sense GTX 970 is ass kicker card.

    wish I had all the $$$ in the world.

    But I have selected my self something better.
    Please see below. This will also be future proof atleas for 2 years from now
    MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 5 LGA 1150 Intel Z97
    MONITOR: BenQ RL2455HM 24 inch LED Backlit LCD Monitor...
    CPU: Intel i5 4690K Processor
    RAM: G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) PC DRAM
    HDD: WD BLACK 1 TB
    GPU: MSI NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960 Gaming 2 GB GDDR5
    CASE: Corsair 200 R
    COOLER: Cooler Master 212 EVO


    What do you think now?
  25. I see you changed your opinion on overclocking, looking at that motherboard/CPU. Looks good overall. Just two things to say:

    One being that you cant go too crazy overclocking the 4690k with the 212 EVO, dont get me wrong it is one hell of a cooler and I am sure you could get some nice numbers but again, not too crazy.

    And the other thing, I would highly suggest getting an SSD as a boot drive, it makes your overall life so much more enjoyable, makes your desktop and windows application much more reactive and snappier. Food for thought.

    Other than that you seem to got all the parts down for a very strong and future proof build.
  26. Exactly what I was looking to hear from you.

    I know if you want to go crazy on overclocking than you need something like liquid cooling something like H100i

    but that is okay. I will take to 4.4ghz not much or may be less or just keep at 4.0ghz.

    SSD is good more responsive but more expensive as well. Let's see how far can I upgrade my system and put $$$ on it.
