It goes 100$ above your maximum but thats because of the cooler, if you are going to be overclocking you will need a cooler but if you remove it it will be in the 1000$ mark.
338
It also comes with some extra's of some sort lol
Theres a dirt3.

This so many times, 7950 is almost the best option right now on the market for you, and it'll absolutely **** bf3 etc.. Also that's the best "sweet-spot" CPU on the market. However I would've got a 1TB HDD instead of 500GB HDD+30GB SSD since 30 is almost not enough for the OS+some applications or a Hyper 212+ for a nice overclocking bump.

Edit: Just saw that's 1081$ lol, just remove the SSD for now and it'll be 1031. Also, don't get CPU coolers now and don't get SSD now, these are nice upgrades further on when you need it. That CPU will bring its power with the current software, you can get a cooler when you need it in a year or more if its still holding up like a beast.

let him take a SSD now and for HDD i put a 500GB HDD because the total was already near to 1k so i took a refurnished one redface.gif as for cooling i would say go for a 212 Evo it will push the 25ook till ~4.5Ghz over that u need to go with a H100 or a XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit (my personal favorite wink.gif)


And just saw its in AMD section
bro here is the AMD config but will performance wise the Intel would be more
Faster
Reliable
Futureproof
^^ This is according to me at last it your choice wink.gif
here
480

without the SSD and the Cooler in its $989.93 in AMD config and in Interl config its $1031.93 wink.gif

Cheers Hope that part of info helped u thumb.gif

I was gonna type a long text about you not reading stuff and you giving options to buy stuff that are known to have issues.
But Ill just say this: That mobo you suggested for the Intel, is known to be weak on the OC department compared with others.
30Gb SSD you got only 1000$ to spend and you will spend almost 100$ on a Sata 2 30Gb SSD?
Refurbished 70$ HDD? Ill stick with what I said and you failed miserably to read, get a temporary HDD from some old computer you(OP) might have arround, it aint worth spending 100$ on an HDD atm, wait for them to lower.
4Gb of ram for a person who will be playing BF3? 4Gb is enough for it to run but 8Gb would be the better option, also a low profile ram would be even better since it does not bring compatibility issues.
The case... well if the OP doesnt find it ugly and way too standard looking he can keep it.

So tarun you have chosen a 1000$ Theres nothing wrong with it, it is the rig you have chosen. And if you bought it... you prolly would regret it.
Spending too much where it isnt needed, spending not enough where it is needed... Common errors.

Cant wait to see your next post on the news section thumb.gif

Im on a 3 year old $550 Budget machine and i can run BF3 on High, 48-110 FPS without VSYNC.

A $1000 machine will last you (at the current hinderence of consoles) 2-3 years. But as soon as The new next gen consoles come out, and games arnt held back by todays old dated consoles, PCs will be able to jump WAY ahead in terms of power.

Or you could forget about the 2500k; stick with this setup, get the entire deal and be actually within a $1000 budget, and get an actually nice and fast and rather usable 120GB Sandforce SSD in the process (will fit a lot of games) which would make for a larger all-around performance difference than the CPU:

 

 

Total cost - $974 shipped

hi pal chill !!! m not from US so i dont know things around there and how it goes about?? it takes time to learn these thing pal i know i mess with my posts sometimes redface.gif
  • about the SSD according to me SSD for now is just to install the OS.
  • motherboard i have never got any problem report from my friends using some of Asrock mobos
  • as per the RAM i have nothing to say
  • That the best case i have seen in that budget dude and not everyone likes flashy case wink.gif
  • 1 think i felt important is that the OP should get a good or the best GPU in that budget so i squeezed in a 7970 instead of a 6970 ;p which made thing abit mess
  • and in your build you missed out SSD,HDD,DVD-writer and skipping these thing also your build is going some where $130+ so pls look into it too


about my post in news section pls dont embarrass me men redface.gif that post of mine was a disaster mad.gif hope to learn many more thing from u guys i will keep those thing in mind what u said smile.gifthumb.gif
cheers
