The MSI 970 Gaming motherboard features all the requisites that you may need in your continued fragging, racing, fighting or any other gaming activity you’ll perform. Adding to that the support for both CrossFire and SLI allows for decent future expansion capabilities. The cost doesn’t hurt, either.
COST: ₹ 9,800
We chose the AMD FX-8320 because its performance delta is not really that huge compared to the 8350, and considering it’s an AMD build, I guess it was only obvious we’d use and AMD processor.
COST: ₹ 12,350
We chose 16 GB of RAM over 8 GB because 8 is steadily becoming the minimum requirement for most games (and more often than not for all the bad reasons).
COST: ₹ 5,780
We chose the Sapphire Nitro lineup for out R9 380 because Sapphire is traditionally known to make some of the best AMD Radeon AIBs in the market. That, and it is cheaper than most of the competition, leaving us room to invest more heavily in enclosures.
COST: ₹ 22,900
The reason the HAF XB EVO was chosen is CM’s well-known reliability and product quality. This particular case has an extra advantage: it’s designed as a cube-shaped chassis, especially for those who plan to either use it as a test bench or lug it around to LAN parties.
COST: ₹ 9,900

OPTIONAL: Thermal Paste
COST: ₹ 950

After much deliberation, we decided to provide two alternatives for the choice of power supply units so you, the buyer, can decide which one to choose. Both are excellent products, too, and very comparable in price.
Keyboard + Mouse
COST: ₹ 2,990
Oh, storage, my storage! This is the one thing that you can’t have enough of, what with games casually hitting 40+ GBs in install size. Having a high-cap storage device is as important as having a fast video card these days.
COST: ₹ 5,775

I started gaming with Minesweeper on my dad’s office computer that ran Windows 95 and have been hooked since. I’ve spent many hours on classics like Wolfenstein 3D and today, I spend several more on games like Deus Ex, Darksiders, Just Cause and keep a special place in my heart for BioShock and Metro 2033. I may have a background in computer science, but I aspire to write and direct a film adaptation of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and Call of Pripyat one day. I love cats, cooking and light, soothing music. Huge Godzilla fan.
