Default 1000$ gaming rig nothing more nothing less.

1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.
playing games (BF3, DOTA2, TF2, MP3, Sleeping dogs and any other upcoming game), Powerpoint, web surfing, Multimedia. Pc should boot quickly and be able to run games seamlessly on high settings.

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread
My budget is 1000$ at max. cant afford a single extra penny. moreover i would be buying my computer from India so the budget is around 50000 RS. Try to be as close to 1000$ and not above 1k.

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.
India
4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture.
No fanboy but would love a comparison bw AMD 8150 processor and i5 ivy bridge. Price to performance ratio

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.
-Speakers (edifier X600), razer death adder, logitech k400 keyboard, sennheiser headphones.

6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.
-read a lot about processors and gfx cards. amd 8150 has best price to performance ratio yet being 8 cores its jus slightly better than i5 2500k. Wanna know if 20k for processor and mobo + 10 k gfx card a better built or a 14 k amd mobo + processor + 16 k amd hd 7850 better built.

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.
-i dont know abt overclocking and wont do it as long as my games run seamlessly on my native resolution.(1920 x 1080)

8. WHEN do you plan to build it?
-i have 2 weeks. really frustrated with my laptop

9. What resolution and settings do you use?
-i wish to run games on high settings or maybe ultra on 1920 x 1080. will be buying 21-23 inch led so would love to run games on its native resolution and nothing less.

10. Are there any specific technologies you want?
- would definately want usb 3.0 on the cabinet as well as motherboard, sata 6 gbps support on motherboard but would install 500 gb hdd first and then wd caviar green 2tb afterwards.

My System Specs

Default

Hello and welcome!

For benchmarks between the FX-8150 and any Sandy or Ivy Bridge components of anywhere near the same price, the Intel component comes up on top for gaming. See:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...x,3043-20.html
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...rk,3268-7.html
AMD Bulldozer FX-8150 Processor Review

Now I know I linked some older benchmarks, but dig through enough of them and you'll see that at stock settings and for gaming, the 8-core 8150 can most of the time be beaten out even by DUAL-CORE Sandy Bridge parts. (There is no Ivy Bridge i3 yet, but when they come out soon, it will look even worse.)

I'm linking a build that's $983.41 CAD, but includes an older processor because I didn't see Windows OS on your list of stuff that you have. I didn't try very hard looking for sale prices, so most of that is actually on the regular price. It also has NO overclocking features on the CPU, but I'm biasing the build towards graphics because you mentioned 1080p gaming. I'm not familiar with the motherboard but I linked it because it meets your front panel USB 3.0 requirement.
OS: Newegg.ca - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - Operating Systems
CPU: Newegg.ca - Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.4GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52400
Motherboard: Newegg.ca - ECS H77H2-M LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
RAM: Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
SSD: Newegg.ca - Corsair Force Series GT CSSD-F90GBGT-BK 2.5" 90GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
HDD: Newegg.ca - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Video card: Newegg.ca - MSI R7870 HAWK Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
PSU: Newegg.ca - SILVERSTONE Strider Essential series ST60F-ES 600W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Case: Newegg.ca - COOLER MASTER Elite 431 Plus RC-431P-KWN2 Black Steel Body (0.5mm SECC), ABS plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

You'll very likely have to get a different type of power supply, so let me know what you come up with because there are a lot of cheap power supplies out there. I'll recommend anything maufactured by Seasonic or SuperFlower; there are a few good FSP and HEC units as well. This build will be fine with even a 500W unit provided it has the connectors. If you need to tighten the budget, you can drop down to a Radeon 7850 or see if you can get a deal on the outgoing nVidia GeForce 480 or 570 (but watch out for the additional power consumption of those older cards). If you can afford to buy more, then up the CPU/mobo combo to a 2500k+Z68 (or P67 if you can find it), or 3570k+Z77.

Hope this helps!

First off, you are over your 50000 R mark :)

Second, I don't know about price differences but using 50000 = $1000, the price of the graphics card at $308 seems very high. Can get the same card here locally for $240

$1000 USD is about 54000 Indian Rupee according to my desktop currency converter but keep in mind there are exchange rate margins to consider. A simple look at the GPU price would say India got higher prices than in US and Canada. Is there some kind of trustworthy online shop in India?

The specs looks good. I would pick another GPU and UPS brand just because of personal preferences. However, I'm not sure what kind of options you have in India.

Yes if you could point us to a online shop you plan to purchase from that could help us out a lot.

if you don't use SSD , sata 6 will be just for showing off on that rig. I would look at a 24" monitor. AMD route is always cheaper, I would even go with an AMD phenom II X4 if you still can find one, but put a decent cooler like a coolermaster evo 212+, the stock cooler on phenom is too noisy. I saw there is ebay india also where you can get your stuff. A nvidia GTX 470 can play at 1920x1080 with all the eye candy turned on. 8GB DDR 3 1333MHz will do the trick, even 4 GB will do it. Good and recent power supply, don't look at anything else below 80Plus Bronze standard, I had XFX Core 650, built by Seasonic as OEM, awesome, for best results look at power supply with Single Rail design. Other Seasonic OEMs are the Corsair. You might also want to consider a used part or two, like the graphics card.

The site from where i am buying my pc is listed below
http://www.costtocost.in/list/pricelist.pdf
The prices listed there donot include 5% tax. The prices of electronic stuff is 1.5 times prices in canada/india.
I am confused bw buying 22 inch full hd monitor or a 20 inch monitor. Moreover dont know if investing in i5-2500 is worth it or should i go with an i3 2120.
