P.P.P.S: I cannot afford an i7

Thanks a bunch :)

hmm.. I should consider that. What about the i5 3.2 ? Its for 16500 and has 4 processing cores and 8 processing threads. It can be OCked to 4 given the right parameters and comes with a performance boost. My i3 equals my dads Q8400 and i5 > i3 so I'd rather pay Rs.1000 extra for the best I can afford. I need more advice though. Guys? Asad bhai?? Where are you people!!

I'd recommend you Wait for the new Intel babies

first of all some of the prices you quoted in your original price list are not updated. A 2 gb ram stick of kingston 1333 now costs 2200 rs.

Second for a GAMING pc you need a powerful graphic card and a power supply.

I see that you have a budget of 56-63 thou rs and in that i recommend the following:

mobo ASUS P7H55-V 8800

hd wd 1000 gb 6300

dvd rw samsung 24x sata 2000

pro core i5 2.66 quad core 16915 (with 8 mb cache is still available in the market)

ram kingston 2 *2 gb 4400

case normal 1500

power supply antec 550 watt 6000

HP X20LED 20" led 12900 (get at least a 20inch led for gaming)

graphic card xfx 5770 1gb 13500 (more powerful then a 5550 or 5570)

TP Link Internal WiFi Card 700

total 63015

goto any PC manufacturer website and build a pc with your needs (or select their gaming PCs) and place order with your address using CC they will ship to you

Dell gives full control to customize Your PC with your needs online

get hard disk drive of seagate as they are cheap and good, cooler master power supplies are not good,get any other brand as corsair,xigmatech ( only available at iamentreme.net ) i3 is better as it is cheap, i5 650 is also dual core and it is not worth it IMO.
