^^ Keep your guns with the ASUS P8H67-M PRO ~ 7500/- [better layout + heatsinks, more DIMMs and all solid capacitors]

Plus if you are going for a H67 based motherboard why waste cash on a k marked processor, get the standard i5 2500 ~ 11000/-.

Also get a better SMPS ~ Cooler Master Silent Pro M600 ~ 6000/- [OR any equivalent 600W SMPS].

You'll get the MSi 560 Ti Twin Frozr II ~ 14500/- [due to recent price rise thanks to falling INR value in co-relation to the USD]. So there.

Else if you want to go for the Seasonic S12D 520W, you can look at the AMD HD 6950 1GB flavor ~ 15000/- It performs reasonably well against the 560 Ti, only cons are forgoing of CUDA and PHYSX support in way of Eyefinity.

Here is a brief match-up of the two cards -- AnandTech - Bench - GPU11.

Hope this helps, Sire.

Happy Diwali to you in advance.

For keyboard best [if you are gaming it is a must] --> Logitech wired multimedia keyboard ~ 500/-

For speakers I'm not great with a recommend, so will have others pitch in OR if you are not that inclined to spend much, get these --

Altec Lansing BXR 1221 ~ 1100/-.

Yeah stick to ASUS P8H67-M PRO B3

Core i5 2500 without K ;) will be enough

And instead of normal GTX 560, get the Ti model. As Alpha has suggested 6950 competes head to head with 560ti and performs well in some scenarios...

I suggest you rather get Ripjaws X instead of Sniper

Budget 2.1 : Iball Tarang or AL VS2621

Thanks for the replies

I've been loyal Ati fan for a long time so i would like to switch too nVidia for the physx and I heard bf3 performs better on nvidia

Also I'm deciding between the 22inch Samsung SyncMaster S22A350H or the BenQ G2222HDL

Get atleast 6870 re... Ultra settings not possible with decent frames rates at full hd with a 6850... I am using a 6850 on 1600x900 and its good for this reso... YOu will have to tone down some settings on full HD with 6850, but same will apply to 6870 but it will churn out some more frame rates

Prime doesn't have the 6870 :|

What about unlocking the 6850 into a 6870?

Not possible... Never unlocks... They are two different cards... Check if any other shop has it... or get a 6850 cyclone PE/OC... Why are you in some much hurry BTW?? you can save for a GFX card and get one later... i.e in next week or so

Thanks bro I'm going for a GTX 560 instead of a 6850 :)

Still need to a get a new hdd but since the prices are high I'm gonna wait on it

^^ For what end are you looking for a cooler?

If it is moderate OC then get the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ and configure it in push-pull ~ 2500/-.
