Will MY Budget gaming Rig do well ? for 33,000 INR

Well hello , Mathieu it gives me immense pleasure seeing the awesome stuffs in your site . i seem to have have some problems choosing the right spec for my own custom build budget casual gaming PC . The spec in my mind will be this
Core i5-650 3.2 ghz upto 3.4 ghz
Corsair 4 gd ddr3 1600 mhz 4*1 or g skill 2 * 2 ???
XFX Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5
Gigabyte h55m usb3 motherboard ( seems to cool for the price of about 4500 INR ( 100 $ )
Acer G215HAbd 21.5" Monitor
Seagate 7200.12 1 TB
I have no idea about what psu and case to buy and whether my spec would be good , would be compitable with each other ( mob & processor )
Any help from you will be appreciated . I would be buying my Pc in about 3 weeks or 4 weeks . I just use my pc for gaming ( occasionaly ) , web surfing / downloading which would require me to keep my pc switched on for 2-3 days ) , and other normal stuffs like ( minimal C++ use , ms office , music etc etc )

THanks in Advance

So Processor + motherboard + GPU + PSU + Keyboard + Mice + Internal Hard drive + Monitor + Ram + CAbinet + UPS ( +/- 650 v would also be fine ) = <= 33000 inr ( 745$ / 742 $ )

Your motherboard and processor would be a generation behind, I recommend you get the i5-2400 or i5-2500 with an LGA 1155 motherboard, assuming they're available in India.

Also SeaGate hard drives tend to be unreliable, you might want to buy from a better brand such as Samsung or Western Digital.

For PSU, make sure it's listed under Tier 1, 2, 2b or 3 here:

For RAM, get the cheaper of the two. Both are excellent brands. See Mathieu's below post, didn't notice the first one was single stick.

Case doesn't really matter... just buy something that you like and has two or more 120mm (or larger) fans.

Otherwise everything looks good.

For RAM, you want two (2) sticks of 2GB, as opposed to one stick of 4GB, since two sticks will run in dual-channel, for slightly better performance, at a similar price.

You might want to consider a slightly more powerful video card considering that you're planning on getting a monitor with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, which is quite demanding on the video card. Something like a Radeon HD 6850 would be more appropriate.

Andrew already answered the rest of your questions.

The problem is core i5 2500 and a lga 1155 socket motherboard would go slightly out the budget .
But since i am gonna buy only after 3 weeks i think i will take your advice to buy core i5 because processor price will go down in one month i Think [ Hope So ] . SO which motherboard will be best for PowerColor Radeon HD 6850 1GB with Intel Core i5-2500 3.3-3.7GHz Turbo 95W Quad-Core and
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333MHz ( Ram is 25$ in my country ).
BIOSTAR H61MH B3 Intel LGA 1155 Micro ATX and ASRock H61M/U3S3 B3 H61 IGP SATA6Gb/s USB3.0 MicroATX are not available in my country . So any other alternative . ( would prefer intel gigabyte asus as they are more readily available here ) .And one more thing Ati 5770 is 157 $ and 6850 is 230 $ .Thats the reason i went with Sapphire ati 5770 . Ill try to ship 6850 or anyother Through . Because the cost difference is very vast making it worth shipping

Virtually any LGA 1155 motherboard will work.
