good thing, i am flipkart buyer myself xD

rather than getting the msi pe 660ti[it over volts] so i would suggest to get the asus gtx 660 ti[there is one on ebay which comes with OC]

and for the psu, Seasonic X Series - 80 Plus Gold SS-660KM 660 Watts PSU

What have you thought about the HDD and case???

And for the cooler, get it only if you will overclock

and a 3570k is also another option

Dont know you local prices soooo. 1) figure out what is left over in your budget for storage 2) pick your size 120-128gb is good boot drive size 3) then your model.

Some good options are Samsung 830, Samsung 840 Pro, Intel 520, Crucial M4, Corsair Force GS, Corsair Neutron GTX.

HDDs for storage...6 in one half dozen in another. Find a 1TB WD Black, or Seagate Barracdua 1TB....and enjoy :)

couldnt find the WD Black on flipkart, but they are most identical in perfomance. One thing that i found out was the baraccuda has a 1yr warranty, where as the WD black[on official website] has a 5yr warranty. I may be wrong, but yup
