Hey thanks guys for helping out.
I am sorry it took so long for me to reply.
Actually I live in India and it will take ages for the shipment from Newegg to arrive :-P. So shipping is out of the question. The build that you have suggested sounds very promising and economical at the same time. The problem however, is the availability of most of the products that you've mentioned. Especially the motherboard, since ASUS, Intel and Gigabyte are most preferred brands here when it comes down to buying motherboards. So shop owners or the dealers don't generally keep boards of other brands and like I've mentioned earlier, shipping generally takes a lot of time.
The Radeon 5770 sounds good and fits in my price range too. So I would most probably buy it.
The AMD Phenom II X4 955 feels like a good choice but again, a lot depends on the availability of the motherboard. I find the Intel Core i5-760 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115067
) a decent one too. What do you think about it?
And as far as overclocking is concerned, it is NOT a major criteria and it is something that I can live without.
I was wondering whether a 1 TB hard disk would affect the performance of my build?
No problems with the RAM, Optical drive, OS etc.
The cases that you guys have suggested are not bad, but I've got a soft spot
for the one that I have mentioned above. And the amazing thing is that I can get it at a discounted price of 51$. Not bad right! Or are you suggesting other models due to any compatibility issues?
Like I've mentioned above, overclocking is not a must for me. I just don't want my PC to get sluggish after a year or so, and I was hoping I could over clock it in that case.
Thanks for your input though.
I'll check the availability of all the products once again. But if things don't work out, how would the alternatives that I've provided fare?
Thanks again for your precious time guys!!
