Dude, all the permutation of the techonology you posted will come upto atleast Rs.1.5K, and I don't think anyone has used such a costly CPU. I have never heard of Xeons being used by ordinary users, most go i5,i7..By the way, only one suggestion I can give you: take care of the UPS/inverter for your system. You're using power hungry graphic cards.. buy a something greater than 1KVA.. 1.5KVA perhaps with > 35Ah sealed lead acid battery

Ok I will give you some suggestions because I don't know if you are trolling.1. CPU: Core i5 2500 Reason: There is no need to overclock as even 10-15% overclocks of K editions do nothing to increase GPU heavy frame rates in modern games.2. Motherboard: Pretty much any socket 1155 compatible would do but make sure it has: a) PCI-e 2.0 slot for GPU b) USB 3 support c) Broadcom based ethernet chipset for easy hackintoshd) 4 slots for DDR3 RAMe) UEFI bios3. GPU: AMD HD 6850 or upwards or Nvidia GTX 560 or upwardsTwist in the tale: Do you want to wait for AMD HD 78XX series which is about to enter the market in a month? then wait.4. PSU: Corsair 700W which comes at around Rs. 5000 and do not compromise on this single most important part. -from my personal experience.5. RAM: Any reputed company will do which is compatibleSuggestion: G.Skill RipJaws (Just because the name is cooler)6. Hard Disk: Any manufacturer SATA II 6Gbps. All are equally good and at the same time equally $hit. If you are billionaire, go for SSD.7. Speakers: Any8. Monitor: Any which supports following:a) 1920x1080 resolutionb) Looks sexy with thin bezelc) Supports HDMI input from GPU9. Wireless adapter: If your motherboard doesn't have it onboard, get Atheros PCI wireless N card as it will go well with Hackintosh.10. PC Cabinet/case: Choose the one which you like really. Ask your mom to choose the color if you cannot make up your mind.11. Headphones: Skullcandy Skull Crushers :devil:12. Coolers, LED lights, thermal paste: Not needed unless you like to faff around your system all the time.

the cost if fine

i am building something heavy and costly but thats why i posted the specs and usage above


i am not an ordinary users,just that my hardware knowledge is bad.xeons are for servers but they are the only ones that were powerful enough untill 1-2years ago for smooth video encoding in small time.

snady bridge extreme are very powerful and seem to be as good as xeons except a few things needed for servers but i haven't tested them so i don't know.



i don't really need UPS but will think of it as power outages are very very rare in mumbai.

1.5-2lac isn't billionaire money

with the inflation so high,that amount is pretty small and to have a good PC which you get for small amount in US or EUROPE,we pay so high in india.

the purchasing power of the rupee is bad
