@Killerx525

Can u explain whats case and what I need to tell you about power supply?? I may be a little dumb here but I need to know. Regarding the budget, I would not live to go over Rs. 4000, i.e. $75. If u think this is too low then please tell me how much I need to get.

A case is an enclosure that the components houses like this. The model of it and the wattage. $75 is not enough. Around Rs. 44,748.25 which get you a pretty decent gaming system.

You can find out what your power supply's total wattage by opening up your case and referring to the sticker attached to it. A power supply looks like this. Depending on your case, it can be located at the top or at the bottom. When checking, be sure to turn off your computer and unscrew using a non-magnetic screw driver. Then you can write down your power supply's information to be posted here.

Okay, my PSU - Mercury(name), model - KOBAP4300XA which is of [b]300W[/b.

This one -

FIFA 12 for PC

Recommened requirements -

Processor - Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz/ AMD - Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5600+

Graphics Card - GeForce 8800 GS/AMD - Radeon HD 2900 XT 512MB

RAM - 2 GB

This upgrade is not just gonna be the CPU, motherboard and GPU but looks like every components. Fifa 12 isn't a graphics intensive game, games like Battelfield 3, Metro 2033, Dirt 3 etc fits that category. Do you have a online computer store site that you prefer to use?

This are the only things that I found at www.deltapage.com (I did this to make an estimate on the total expenses and not to buy online).

1. CPU: AMD FX-4100 - Rs. 6200
2. Hard Drive: Seagate 1 TB SATA Desktop 3.5" Internal HDD (1000 GB) - Rs. 5400
3. Optical Drive: Asus External DVD/RW USB : SDRW-08D2S-U - Rs. 1800
4. Ram: G.skill Ripjaws X 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Desktop RAM - Rs. 1535
5. PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W Power Supply - Rs. 5970
6. Motherboard - GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard - Rs. 7295
7. GPU - XFX Double D FX-785A-CDFC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Rs. 14277
8. Case: Antec Three Hundred Illusions - Rs. 3172

PLEASE confirm the parts that I have written here. One thing, few items are from newegg and most from deltapage, so that prices may very right?? This is the total estimate is Rs. 45649, thank you.

I believe you mixed yourself up with the optical drive, the optical drive is something like this. Everything else looks right.
