HDD western digital 500GB 16MB cache for 5200

Casing normal ATX for 1500

1st of all don’t go for intel motherboards if u wana tweak the performance of ur system through overclocking , secondly don’t go for power master supply instead of cooler master due to stability issue.

i'm going with:

the 2.5 ghz processor, a nforce 630i mobo, 500 gig hd, a nvidia gt9500/1gig, 4 gigs of corsair ram and a cooler master 500 watt psu.

probably going to buy it from galaxy computers, i wish they had a shop in clifton though, would make things a whole lot easier

dont go with 9500gt, get alteast 9600gso, its better to get 2gb ram and 9600 gt with an asus motherboard in my opinion

i have intel core 2duo E8400 3core extreme 3.01Ghz

nvidia GeForce 8400GS SE 512mb Vram DDR2 supports 1gb Vram it have more power than a 9600GSO

1gb ram ya i know my ram sucks

Power master 750Watts PSU it works very great

and i play GTA IV on medium settings with 1024x1368 resolution with more than 40 FPS

thats why told him to buy power master 750Watts PSU

and dun go for 630i chipset. it sucksss....

and 9600GSO is way much better than 9500GT ! dun go for 95GT.

see the technical review before buying.

btw,,,, Babar Kamal suggest you a good cpu under 30k. go for it if u can...:)

1st of all… 8400 GS can never be equal to 9600GS !! it doesn’t matter u hav 1gb of gpu.

second that i never heard nor read abt any Company named “Power Master”. it means that this PSU is some Chinese brand (branded PSU which suXx). there are many technical things like Rails n Ampairs in PSU (u know ?)

i can play GTA IV toooo on my 7600GS . My card also give me good FPS but the truth is that Old Gpu can give u FPS but not the “Result” (reality) Fps doen’t matter too much if u hav an Old GPU.

striker 111 is right, sam786 is rating gpus on the amount of vram they have, he's comparing his 8400gs 1gb ddr2 to 9600gso 384mb ddr3. read all the specs of these two on wikipedia or on some review site and you'll know which one is better. i would also recommend cooler master.

@sam: Mery bhai all the members above have suggested u to go with 9600gso and not to go for 630i coz it sucks and also doesn't have dual channel memory support.

And yar u r making me laugh by comparing 8400gs with 9600gso there is difference like "Zameen and Asman".

So go with p5kpl or any other asus board in ur range, i'm prefering p5kpl coz i've used it and it's a really gud mobo in this price range. Secondly buy only 2gb of ram, cooler master 460w psu, and 9600gso.

The rest is up to u.

ya u r right to go with 2gb ram and cooler master but power master power supply is fine thats why i do support that i like cooler master too but if power supply works fine why do i have to change it and ya 9600gso DDR3 is better than 8400gs DDR2 but if i had 8400GS SE 1gb DDR3 maybe maybe maybe it will be better than 9600GSO because 8400GS SE DDR3 1gb is made in dec 28th 2008 made for GTA IV

yar i don't think 8400gs is available in ddr3 memory coz it's a ddr1 or ddr2 graphic card and one more thing the size of memory in graphic cards don't matter the thing that matters is the type of memory and clock speed of the memory. So u leave everything and take my advice to go with 9600GSO. Or still if u have confusion then provide the link to the graphic card (8400gs) which u r refering to and let us decide.

and u go with power master psu.

I also think that 8400 GS is for DDR1 And DDR2 Only..........!

wtf u guys r gettin gud fps on 7600gs n 8400gs in gta4 but i cant get more than 20fps on my 8600gt at low settings :D
