Hello,

I'm building a new desktop...I'm a gamer and right now i'm tight on budget....The hard disk i'll using would be from my old desktop...The processor which i have chosen is AMD fx 6100..

I don't have much knowledge about Motherboards, Graphics Cards and PSU...So need suggestions regarding these three products..


My last two motherboard were dead due to heat problem, so now i want to build a system which is good in performance and reliability..I'm not into stuff of over-clocking.

I have the AMD FX 6100 and I was disappointed with the gaming performance! It has weak per core performance and I had better performance in games with my Core 2 Duo @ 2.33GHz to my surprise. I would recommend going with Intel, but if you want an AMD system go for the older Phenom II range a lot better and cheaper with none of this integer core rubbish!

I have the same in my mind with ASUS Sabertooth 990fx motherboard...What about PSU and GPU?


Its approximately Rs 25000 that's around $ 460-470 for mobo+processor+PSU+GPU...If money is an issue, then i can buy GPU after sometime as well...I just want something best in performance and reliability

I have to order everything online, but I'm getting not this PSU in any of the famous Websites that delivers product in India...So, any other PSU you want to suggest?
