  4. Hi Prakash,

    Your old config is really out dated to play latest games.

    Regarding you upgrade
    CPU : Intel Core i5 2500K (Excellent choice) - But you need to check the availability in you locality, as it is a very new processor

    Motherboard : ASUS P7P55 Deluxe (Wrong choice) - You cannot use this P55 board for core i5 2500k, it needs P67 or H67
    You can go for ASUS P8H67-MLX or Galaxy H67

    RAM : 2*2GB Corsair 1600 DDR3 (Excellent choice)
    1*4GB is not recommened, but does not affect much

    GPU : ASUS ENGTS450 (Good choice), but if u can increase your budget by 3500 go for GTX 460

    Cooler master 500Waats is enough for ur new config.

    Also u can ROCK with the new config in Games.

    ReplyDelete
  5. @Siddharth

    Here is the config, which you asked. For such a highend PC Intel-nvidia is the best.

  7. @Prakash

    You new config is super.

    Gtx 560 is a very new GPU, so it will cost more. Also it is just 20-25% faster than GTX 460.
    If you can increase your budget go for GTX 560 ti.

    Regarding power supply : ur cooler master 500 w is enough if you go for GTX 460 (min needed : 450w).

    If you go for GTX 560 (min needed : 500w) ur power supply is enough, but since u r adding CoolerMaster Hyper N520 and Logisys 12"Inch duel cold cathods CCFL kit[BLUE] it is advisable to have little bit more.

    If u can raise ur budget by Rs.5000 get a new power supply
    Corsair 650TX or Corsair 750TX will be apt for ur new rig.

  8. Hello Karthik,
    I am Ajaiy
    ajaiy@in.com
    I would like to assemble a gaming pc,
    the specs are
    i7 2600k
    And I want a 1GB graphic card for high end gaming
    also I will be adding a graphic card in SLI mode in future
    Can u please suggest me a good graphic card and 8GB ram and the corresponding motherboard ,and the wattage of power supply unit
    Thanks in advance.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hi Ajaiy,

    What is ur budget?

    If it is around 1 Lakh, then go for
    2 x GTX 460 1GB in SLI mode (Rs. 21,000)

    Then 8GB for RAM is not useful for gaming PC, 4GB is enough. 8GB is needed only for high end photo editing jobs.

    Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD5
    Power Supply : Corsair 750TX 750Waats Power Supply

    Check my other blog in the below link for more details

  10. Ajaiy:
    Thanks for the config,
    My budget is around 70k but i would like the cost to be a little low,I want to upgrade to SLI mode in future only,Is 460 a good GPU in single mode?.
    I will switch to SLI in like 8 months.
    Can u please help?
    Thanx

    ReplyDelete
  11. Single GTX 460 1GB is also a great GPU.
    It will cost around Rs.10,500.

    But if you plan to go SLI in future, buy a motherboard that supports SLI.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ajaiy:
    The Motherboard you suggested supports SLI right?
    Am staying in Chennai,do you know any reliable place where I can get the components?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes the motherboard supports SLI.

    The best palce in chennai is

  29. They will tell like that only, tell them that u r my friend and I refered you.

    Tell me what exactly ur processor number and speed.

    It is not good to combine a low end processor with high end GPU like GTX 460

    ReplyDelete
  30. Pentium E5200 at 2.50 GHZ...... If its not good wat else processor can i buy and my Motherboard is ASUS P5KPL AM/PS.... and thanx a lot for ur kind help

    ReplyDelete
  31. Your Processor is O.K, but still not recommended to combine with GTX 460. (But u can do it and play games in good settings)

    Suggestion 1 : Change ur mother broad, processor and RAM to Core i5 and then buy GTX 460

    Suggestion 2 : Buy GTX 460 now and upgrade to Core i5 later.

    Suggestion 3 : Upgrade to Core i5 now and buy GTX 460 later

    Core i5 details u can get from my blog above.

    ReplyDelete
  32. How about core 2 duo processors without changing the mother board and is 2GB ram enough for gaming .......

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Anonymous
    If u want to change the processor alone go for Intel Core 2 Duo E8500, price will be around Rs. 8000, but not sure about the availability.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Prakash, 13k to 14k for Case is very high, it is enough to send between 6k-7k

    Some suggestions:
    Cooler Master Storm Scout - Rs 6000
    Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced - Rs. 5400

    ReplyDelete
  36. @Anonymous 2Gb is enough, but it would be good if u have 3GB, add 1GB

  39. @Anonymous, I am using Creative X-fi Xtreme Gamer sound card. It has the below advantages over normal motherboard sound card

    1. Pure noiseless audio quality in MP3, videos and games.
    2. reproduction of very minute sounds.
    3. Increased number of voices in games.(In parallel)
    4. Super surround sound effect.
    5. 3D sound.

    All of these you can get, only if you use ur sound card with a very good 5.1 speakers.
    Cheap speakers is of no use with a sound card.

    Really u can experience the power of sound card with a descent speakers.

    ReplyDelete
  40. @shanmugagopi
    You can choose any one of the two
    GTS 450 - Rs. 7000
    GTX 460 - Rs. 11,000

    One more suggestion, you have choosen LGA1156 (old model i.e first generation i3 and i5), instead go for Second Generation i3 or i5 with LGA1155 sandy bridge board.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Iam using Sony MDR ZX 300 computer headphone... Does it require a Sound card

    ReplyDelete
  42. @^ It is a nice Headphone to experience the power of a Sound Card, still I recommend a descent 5.1 speakers to use a sound card.

  44. @shanmugagopi
    Good Configuration, But two suggestion, Go for

    Zebronics 600w - Rs. 2950 (500w is enough, but to be in the safer side, since u r going to use GTX 460 and future proof)
    Seagate 1TB - Rs. 2650 (You might need more space in future, if playing games)

    The best palce in chennai are

  53. Hey Karthik, I wanted to build a gaming PC for around Rs. 50000, and your config is spot on.
    But, I was just wondering if it would be easier to buy a XPS 8300 and upgrade the graphics card?
    Also, which one do you personally think is better, the AMD rig or the Intel one?

    I live near Delhi, and I don't know any place that has all the hardware. So do you, by any chance, know a good shop?
    If not, is there any place where I can get it online, except ebay, of course?

  54. @Gaurav,
    CPU coolers are needed only if u r going to over clock ur CPU. Else it is not needed.

  56. hHi karthik,
    i;'m ADITYA from JAMMU.

    i'm really really much confused wheather to buy a laptop or to go for a desktop. well i'm only gonna use it for entertainment purposes like hard gaming, etc.my budget is 50000, deviations only till 1500-2000k. i really like laptop as it is really handy, and thats where i dont like pc's they are so big, but there pc makes me jealous as i can get better features at the same price as compared to a laptop. please please help me bro. i'v selected a laptop dell XPS 15. and about a desktop plz suggest me. thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. @Aditya,
    Dont get confused. For PURE Entertainment and Gaming GO FOR DESKTOP.

    Dont ever go for Laptop for gaming and entertainment.

    Dell XPS 15 is a good laptop, but if u built the desktop rig given in my blog post, it will be 2 times faster and better at the same price.

    If u r a casual gamer or never play games go for Laptop. Or else Desktop ROCKS :-)

  59. OK THANKYOU VERY MUCH BROTHER.. :)
    but ill be going for a Nvidia graphics card. tell me about it, which one 2 opt for? zotek nvidia GTX 460, i'v heard of it?
    and what does this 2500k means here---> (Intel Core i5 – 2500K 3.3 GHz)....SORRY its my 1st pc & i dont know any thing about it. and now finally i hav found an EXPERT so i'm not gonna let you go. :P
    i heard that i5 is having some problems from a dell employee. BUT i think i5 with a 3.3Ghz is really gonna ROCK. also what about the 2nd generation quad icore processors ? and should i install USB 3.0 and bluetooth 3.0 in it?

    ReplyDelete

  61. @Aditya,

    1. Any Nvidia GTX 460 is o.k, better go for MSI or Galaxy or Zotac.

    2. Intel Number their processors in increasing order, for example in Core i5 2nd generation processor
    i5 2300 - 2.8 GHz
    i5 2400 - 3.1 GHz
    i5 2500 - 3.3 GHz
    i5 2500K - 3.3 GHz and is unlocked, can be overclocked more.

    3. Regarding problem with core i5 : Yes 2 months back, sandy bridge motherboards had some hardware problem. But now every thibng is fine, No need to worry.

    4. Suggested Core i5 2500k is a second generation core i5 with quad core in it.

    5. USB 3 is there in the suggested motherboard. Buletooth you can buy a seperate dongle for Rs. 250

    6. Already the config in my post is updated with the latested hardware as of April 2011. So you can straight away go for it. :-)

  68. Hello mr karthick,

    This is arun and i want a best pc config for gaming around Rs 50,000.

    ReplyDelete
  69. @gaurav, give me some time, I will work on ur question and will answer shortly.

    ReplyDelete
  70. @Rohan,
    Best CPU : Intel Core i5 2500, even tho AMD has 6 cores, practically Core i5 is better

    GTX 480 is far better than HD 6750. Also I would recommend u to go for any one of GTX 460 < GTX 560 < GTX 570.

    SSD means Solid State drive, in theory they say SSD is 5 times faster than Hard Disk. But in practical test it shows SSD is only 10 - 20% faster.
    With SSD you can boot faster and launch applications faster.

    SSD is almost equal to 10,000 RPM Hard Disk.

    If you have enough money, you can buy a SSD and HArd Disk, and use the SSD as System Partition adn Hard Disk for other files.

    Or else simple go for HDD.

    ReplyDelete
  71. @arun, The config in my post is already updated with the latest hardware. Simply go for it.

  72. Hello Karthick,
    Can i go for a 24"monitor and want to know the cost of ssd.Is 2 tb hard disk can be added.

    ReplyDelete
  73. If you are buying a 24' monitor, it needs a better graphics card to support the higher resolution, 20' will be nice for gaming and entertainment.

    SSD are very costly :
    Kingston 30 GB Rs.3600
    Kingston 64 GB Rs.7900
    Kingston 128 GB Rs.12500

    Better dont go for SSD.

    2TB Hard Disk price : Rs 4550

    im not getting ZOTAC GTX 460 1GB in market.. instead i found MSI GTX 460 worth rs, 10,800. but i read in some other blogs that zotac was given more rating than msi and galaxy...

    ReplyDelete
  89. @Gaurav,
    1) Wireless Internet connection will promise high speed upto 7 Mbps. But normally they will be very slow. Some times it will not connect at all.

    2) 3G connections are now providing good speed, but that is also not guaranteed in ur area.

    3) I will recommend u to go for landline connection.(Airtel preferred, if not available go for BSNL)

    4) To share connection with 2 or more PCs. Buy a good wireless router. By this way you can share between ground and first floor.
    Note : Dont forget to password protect ur router.

    5) OpenVPN is a Virtual Private Network software. Which is used to created Private LAN kind of network thru internet. (Normally for LAn, all PCs will be in the same place, but with VPN they can be in different place connected by internet)

  90. @ADITYA SEHGAL,
    1) Zotac Overclocked version is slightly better than Msi OC edition. But the difference is very less, say 2-5%. That to in High resolutions.

    2) I am using Msi OC edition, it is excellent.

    3) Msi coolers are better than all other cards including Zotac.

    4) Dont worry go for Msi it will be very nice

  101. Hi ,

    i am going to upgrade my pc

    1. graphic card
    2. cabinet
    3. adding 4 gb ram
    (already have 4 gb ocz DDR2 pc2-6400 Titanium CL4)

    For graphic card..i was thinking of buying ATI 6970..or is there anything better in the range ?
    could plz suggest me which model(company) i should go for ?

    For cabinet ... i need one which could fit my card, have a buget of 6000 for the case.
    which one should i go for ?

    For ram..can i add ddr2 ram with higher speed than the one i have ? (MB-gigabyte EP45-ud3l)
    which one should i go for ?

    Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  102. @Vineeth,

    1) Graphics card : go for
    ATI 6970 : If u play at High Resolutions > (2560x)
    Price : Rs. 20,000
    Company to go : XFX, Asus

    GTX 570 : If u play at Lower Resolutions < (2560x)
    Price : Rs. 19,500
    Company to go : MSi, Galaxy, Asus, Zotac

    Make sure u have 600w power supply (550w min)

    2) Cabinet
    Cooler Master Chassis Scout - Rs. 6000
    Cooler Master HAF912 - Rs. 5800
    Antec Six Hundred - Rs. 4800

    3)If u add Ram with higher clock speed than the one u have now, then both will operate in the lower speed. So better go for the same speed as u have now.
    Transcend and Kingston are fine

    ReplyDelete
  103. thanks Karthik for ur quick response...


    So ur saying that gtx570 is better performer in lower resoluiton than 6970...i mostly play at 1920
    So which card would be future proof(currently using ati 4870 1gb)

    will the cabinet metioned fit the ati 6970 ?

    will go for the ram of the same speed .

    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  104. @Vineeth
    1) Go for any of GTX 570 or ATI 6970 (personal choice), both are good

  107. Hi Karthik ,

    have a problem..

    the Asus 6970 direct CU2 G-card requires two 8 pin pci express power supply while my 600 w cooler master has two 6 pin adapter.

    is there any way to connect 8 pins to 6 pin ?

    also on the G-card box they say it requires 700W
    power supply. So will my current Power supply work ? or do i need to buy a new one ?

    ReplyDelete
  108. @^ Vineeth, the min power supply required for ur graphics card is 550w

    Check this : http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/amd-radeon-hd-6000/hd-6970/Pages/amd-radeon-hd-6970-overview.aspx#3

    You need 6-pin to 8-pin converter, normally that might come with ur Graphics Card.
    What is the exact power supply u have?(Model)

    If u dont have one, no problem u can get two 6 pin to 8 pin Power Adapter Cable. (The shop keeper might have told u while purchasing, isnt?)

    should i replace it ?

    ReplyDelete
  113. @Vineeth,
    1) U dont need a new power supply, just buy two 6-pin to 8-pin converter.

    2) Ram timing u can mix, shouldn't be a problem. But to make sure it works, test with the win 7 memtest in the boot screen. Or use the memtest software

  116. or do i need two of those ?

    ReplyDelete
  117. @Vineeth,

    1) Ur HD 6970 needs two 8-pin PCI-Ex power cable. (they have given 2 8-pin input to make sure it gets enough power while overclocking and using it in very high resolutions.)

    2) Ur Power supply have two 6-pin connector

    3) connect the 6 pin x 2 to 8x 1 pin adapter (Which u mentioned) into the graphics card's first 8-pin power input.

    5)start the machine and play some games. If is work without any problem continue using it.

    6) If it restarts without proper power, buy two 6-pin to 8-pin converter and connect them in the two 8-pin inputs.

    ReplyDelete
  126. @gaurav,
    Normally branded PC's are assembled in a different way, always it is not possible to upgrade it.

    So before u plan to upgrade, call the HP helpdesk or a technician and confirm, whether u can upgrade it.

    If so, go for the below config

    Processor - Intel Core i3 – 2100 3.1 GHz Rs. 5800
    Motherboard - Intel DH61WW Rs.3200
    Memory - Transcend 2x2 GB DDR3 1333 MHz Rs.1850

    IMP : Lot of things need to be considered, before upgrading, is ur power suplly enough, is it compatible etc. So Check with the technician abt upgrade with this config

    ReplyDelete
  127. @Biswajit, Both are almost equal it is personal choice, I prefer GTX 460.

    Also 32000 is too les for gaming PC, u can check this

  135. @Nirav, Good, but I have the below sugggestions

    1) Go for i5 2500 instead of i5 2500k, if u r not planning to overclock.

    2) Try to get Asus or Gigabyte motherboard, as they give additional feature like UEFI (Better than traditional BIOS) and other cool features. (But all comes at a price)

    3) Dont go for 1600Mz ram, as ur Processor and Motherboard only supports 1333Mz speed, even if u plug a 1600 Mz ram it will work in 1333Mz.

    Dont forget to get a good UPS.

    or a normal one? at present i am not going
    to build an sli rig (thinking for future)???

    thanks

  141. @Nirav,

    1) Sound card go for
    Creative X-fi Xtreme Gamer - Rs 4,000 or
    Asus Xonor DX 7.1 - Rs 4,500

    2) Don't go for SLI boards, as for mid-range budget single GPU solution is best

    3) Go for Cooler Master Elite 430 - excellent cabinet for Rs. 2500

  147. @Nirav,

    1) Asus and MSi cooler are better
    2) Corsair 600 w is enough for GTX 560 and GTX 570
    3) GTX 570 is better than GTX 560, but comes at a price.
    4) If u have enough money go for GTX 570 or go for GTX 560

  148. @Jojo,
    1) ur config is good but u have not included Graphics Card, which is the key for gaming.

    2) Also, 25k is too low for a good gaming PC.
    3) If u can raise ur budget to 30k+, u can get decent gaming PC.

    4) Check my other blogs, with if u can play all latest games in medium spec

    If you play games go for 600w power suplly. Else go for 500w power supply.

    Better go for CoolerMaster SMPS, if you want cheaper option go for Zebronics.

    One more suggestion 250GB is too low for nowadays systems, go for 1TB

  172. @nirav,

    H67 has on-board graphics support.
    P67 does not have one, u need a dedicated graphics card.

    Better go for H67, even if u plan to buy a grahics card. (because if ur graphics card is not working for some reason, still u can use the on-board graphics.)

  175. @pradyumna@bangalore ,

    The config in this post is the best config for games in 50k range.

    U can play Witcher 2 and BF3 in this config at medium to high graphics.

    ReplyDelete
  176. @gaurav , Sorry for the delay.

    1) Motherboard : Asus P8H67-M-LE with USB 3.0 is the best Rs. 6500
    2) Power Supply go for : Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 600W Rs.3500

    Total will come near 35k

    3) U cannot SLI different cards(9400GT and GTX 560)

    4) RAMs are very cheap now, 4GB - Rs. 1500
    5) You dont need a separate Cooler, until u overclock ur components. A good Cabinet is enough.

    ReplyDelete
  179. @Gaurav,

    1) SLi is not needed for PC around 50k. (I recommend SLI only for PCs above 1Lakh)

    2)P67 is slightly better for gaming PCs(overclock), but in case ur graphics card is not working, u cannot use ur PC at all.
    IF u have H67, u can still use ur pc with onboard graphics.

    3)z68 is similar to h67 but with overclocking option.(Dont go for this, unless u overclock)

    4) i5 2500k is similar to i5 2500, but it supports overclocking. (Personally I recommend not to overclock and go for i5 2500)

    Finally with ur latest config, u can play all latest games in high specs in a 20'-22' monitor

  180. Hey C. Karthik
    I would like to know a few things ....
    1) What are the advantages of the deluxe edition of Asus p8p67 over other editions. Would you recommend it to a gamer like me ?
    2) With an Intel i-5 2500k processor,what would be a good graphic card within the 12000-15000 rupee bracket. Also, which would be better between Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 ti and AMD-ATI Radeon HD 6870/6950.
    Also could you recommend a good PSU and Chassis for the above Motherboard/Processor/GPU combo or will the ones listed in your config make do.
    Would be very much obliged if you could mail me at animeshsingh96@gmail.com

  183. @Anonymous,
    1) Deluxe motherboard has 3 Pci-x slots for muti-gpu support.I dont recommend these motherboard, unless u are going to SLi or CrossFire. Better go for normal motherboards with single pci-x16

    2) GeForce GTX 560 Ti is the best option for that price, dont buy noraml GTX 560 with out the 'Ti' suffix.

    3) All others u can go for the parts in the blog itself.

  188. @Animesh,

    AMD Radeon HD 6950 is slightly costlier (Rs.15,000) and better the GTX 560 Ti (Rs.14,000).

    Both of them are almost equal, its ur personal choice.

    1) If u go for 6950 just go for the 1GB version
    2) If u go for GTX 560 Ti, dont go for the GTX 560 without the Ti suffix, it is just a overclocked GTX 460.


    I personally will go for GTX 560 Ti, because of Nvidia's extras like CUDA, Physx
