@ krishnandu

I checked it out.

But i dont like the looks of haf 932, nor does my friend.

So just wanted to know if 5970 will fit in NZXT guardian.

And will a corsair TX650 would be good enough for 5970.

i7 930/Xeon 3520 + Gigabyte X58 UD7 + G.Skill 3x2GB GBNQs + Intel X25-M G2 80GB SSD + 2x1.5TB WD 15EARS + Samsung/Liteon/Benq DVD burner + Sapphire/MSI/Asus HD5870 crossfire + Corsair HX850/Seasonic M12D 850 + Lian Li/CM full tower enclosure + Razer DA 3.5G 3500dpi - should be well within the 1L budget.

Get a keyboard in the likes of Saitek Eclipse II/Razer Lycosa/Logitech G15 v2 - whatever suits you the best.

Don't you need a speaker system/sound card/UPS?

Thanks for the configurations guys.

I dont want a dual card setup thats why i'll stick to 5970.

Which corsair psu should i go with for 5970?

Speakers are to be excluded from this setup as my friend already has them.

Please suggest some other cabinet other than the HAF 932/922.

And will a 5970 fit in a NZXT Guardian 921 ?

Which of these is better : ASUS p6t v2 deluxe or GIGABYTE ud7

@kaneunderground

even i wish ke mera baap bhi aisa hota !!!! :)

Get TX750W or HX750W (modular). These will let you have enough headroom for core i7 and HD5970.

Like The Desecrator suggested, 2 x HD5870 is the fastest ATI setup currently available. You initial request made us think, that you would want the fastest system available. Not pushing you here, but why you shy from 2x cards..?

@desiibond

Ok i'll go with Tx750w

@asingh

Just worried about the heat issues as well as the driver issues that might occur with a crossfire setup. correct me if i am wrong.

@Rockfella

Requirements stated in the first post itself. Just was unsure about the brands and the models.

that cf sync issues are thing of the past and you can get 2x HD5850 for 31k-32k and that is around 6k cheaper than HD5970.

With agreement to the above. CF issues are off the past now. Drivers are good and optimized, most games released realize the dual GPU. Heat will be perfectly manageable with the range of chassis you are contemplating.

Core i7 i930 2.8GHz @ 15.8k

Gigabyte GA-EX58UD3R @ 14K

Thermalright TRUE Ultra-120 2.5K

Corsair TR3X2G-1600 XMS3 C9 6GB Kit @ 8.6k

Cooler Master Centurion 690 @ 4.2k

Razer Arctosa @ 2.5k

LG 22x DVD @ 1.1k

Corsair HX650W @ 7.3k

Sapphire HD5870 1GB GDDR5 @ 23k




TOTAL = Rs. 87,800


Why have I suggested this rig?

1. The performance of this rig is phenomenal

2. It is a very balanced rig

3. The price tag is quite low compared to budget (save money!!!!!!)

4. The HD5970 won't have resale value, and the performance gain is not evident in all games, whereas HD5870 performs throughout and gives excellent fps in all games at max settings

5. There is talk of the next gen HD6000 coming out in the 2nd Half of this year (YES TRUE), then it will only be a better choice for the OP to get rid of the HD5870(if he wants) and grab a spanking new HD6870/50 ?

Please avoid the guardian. If you must have an NZXT case in the same price range, get the Lexa S instead. ~500 INR more gets you a flipped internal layout with the PSU at the bottom, all black interiors, a smoked black side panel and much better airflow.

Wont a 5870 x-fire setup increase the budget over 1,15,000? + i might need a better Psu for this setup.

@amien

NZXT lexa s is awesome. But will a 5970 fit well in it ?

What's the resolution of the TV this thing will be connected to? A single 5870 can handle most games at 2560x1600 resolutions so i think your money might be better spent elsewhere, like on an SSD/more storage for example.

I can confirm that the Lexa S will fit a 5870 and SHOULD have enough room for a 5890. You can go through this:- List of cases that fit the ATI 5870 - techPowerUp! Forums , it may help.

Arpan:

What all have you fixed upon. Post that, and then we can decide the accelerator. The PSU that were reported to you till now, TX650, HX850 all fit the bill. Start to narrow down on components.
