    That's much better except for SSD size and maybe make. I have similar SSD just 120 GB and I'm not completely satisfied with it, Samsung Evo drives are better and cheaper.

    Okay.. this goes way over the budget.. (31500 Rs..) Mine limit is 25000 Rs. = 419.358 US Dollar

    Very good, now we are getting somewhere.
    Now for PSU, I'm partial to Chieftec, don't know where you getting all that stuff and what's available to you. Some good brand of PSU with at least 500w rating should be quite enough, most of them that have Bronze efficiency rating, at least should do the trick. Look at some nice case (does not have to be fancy) that has places for 120 mm case fans, front and back or/and top. Ventilation is essentially for good running and long life. Some makes come with PSUs too.

    I have edited the last post..
    how about this rig?

    CPU: AMD FX-Series FX-6350
    Motherboard: (Your Rcommendation) Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 is bit costlier and I don't need Crossfire and stuff.. how about something for a low end gamer..

    This one: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...aspx?pid=4298# lists only up to FX6300 but as 6350 is same core just faster it should support it. One thing about larger MBs (apart from more interface buses) is that they tend to have better power handling (VRM), more ports for more disks etc. Better VRM translates to better cooling, ability to upgrade to better CPU etc. It pays to have better MB because later on you can upgrade components easier and better OC and so can be used effectively longer time without having to change everything. It's one of things together with PSU that should not be skimped on. Better go for cheaper or even used case than to skimp on those 2 items.

    If you were discussing the convo between myself, Jimbo and CountMike, I think all 3 of us were as cool as a cucumber. It was simply a discussion.

    I think SSD's are awesome, but when it comes right down to a budget rig or getting a specific price, I feel that dropping the SSD is a good choice. You can always add it later when budget allows. If skipping an SSD allows more RAM, a slightly better CPU and a better graphics card (and you are a gamer), I'd go that route every time without question.

    I don't think the user needs a case, he said in the original post he was going to use his existing case.

    Ah, those realities of life, always have to throw monkey wrench i the works. Yes, always have to prioritize something. If games are most important and have to choose than GPU comes first. If, like me, I had to choose too, my first priority is fast, smooth working computer so SSD came before GPU. This GPU is good enough for me for now so it stays, not much gaming any more and if grandkids complain when they come, let them play with the ball, outside, it's nice weather now.

    In the past year, I've built about 50 systems for various purposes and the things I do for every system I build is:

    - 120GB SSD for Win7 or Win8.1 (bootable C Drive)
    - 2TB or 3TB WD Caviar Black or Red NAS hard drive for data
    - Corsair H60 AIO liquid CPU cooler (whether overclocking or not)
    - 120mm and/or 140mm high quality case fans
