I want to Build a new PC for my gaming.But here are my views about how the build should be
1)Already have 4x1 TB HDD, Monitor,Keyboard,Mouse,DVD Writer
CPU-I already had really bad experience with my fx-6100 series.So i must say i would prefer intel over AMD.Im not heavy gamer but i really want my games to run smoother without any hiccups.Im never gonna over clock it for sure
SSD- Plan on taking SSD 120/240 gb for better Experience for gaming.
MOBO-It should Support my SSD with USB 3.0, Min of 6 sata ports (Due to more HDDs),No Internal Grpahics needed on MOBO,4 ram Slots.Overall it should compliment CPU the best way.
Ram- I think 8gb RAM is more than enough for me.i even thought of one.Here is the link
I think there are rams with different frequencies.So does taking a higher frequency ram effects the performance or is it negligible.Other ram 
Cabinet- I even came up with Cabinte myself
GPU- As i said Earlier Im not a heavy gamer but im gonna use it alteast for 3 years before upgrading iy.Simply saying that it should be able to handle the next forecoming games also
PSU- NO idea what to take and How many watts is needed for all this to handle.
OS- Im not gonna buy OS but suggest the best Platform to play and which OS and bit should i install
Please suggest so that all the components compliment each other and give out max ouput to play pc games at meduim settings
thats it

:welcome:   harsha008,


I couldn't quite keep the budget below $650 but if you have a DVD drive that you can reuse with the build that will reduce the cost to nearer your budget, can't get any closer to $650 without compromising performance, edited parts list here


OS- Im not gonna buy OS but suggest the best Platform to play and which OS and bit should i install



Not sure what you mean by the above but Windows 7 or 8/8.1 64-bit for the OS, if you choose a free OS such as Linux it will massively reduce what games will run on the computer.


Edit; Not sure what happened there but the price has suddenly increased, back to the drawing board and will post back soon with an edited parts list.

If you are within a reasonable distance to one of these stores, or have a friend who is? store pickup may reduce the cost of some parts.
