    I hate laptops. I have one for last 3.75 years. I want a desktop.
    Anyway, this thread is about the components.
    The PSU, CPU, Chassis is more of less final.
    I need to zero down motherboards.

    See dude, I am trying to balance things
    CPU = 170 £
    PSU = 80 £
    Cab = 80-90 £
    GPU = 250 £
    RAM, SSD etc are pretty fixed.
    I donno how much should I spend on Mobo
    perhaps anywhere between 60 to 100 £, I think

    PS: 1 £ = 100 Rs.

    Le sigh
    anyway...
    here's what i would have done if i was in the market

    4670K
    Asus Z87 Plus
    16GB of whatever ram you can find(8GB is TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO mainstream)..i think you will find mainly teamgroups in UK.
    R9 280x..almost everything in the 250 range is a re-brand...be it form any side)my suggestion..take r9 290.
    Seasonic M12II 750W PSU(damn good PSU for its price and modular so u dont have to fight hydra every-time u open up the case)
    128GB samsung Evo
    1TB/2TB WD cavier blue/black (depends on how much pron u want and how fast u want it.)
    Case is pretty subjective IMHO...try to get the 760T from the corsair.
    get a cooler...u will thank me later since the stock cooler form Intel is complete garbage.

    DID i miss anything?

    THe R9 280x does reasonably better in the performance benchmarks vs the GTX 760, but its like 40 bucks over the Nvidia.


    Alternatively you can get the ATI 270x which undercuts the 760 GTX.

    Nopes, no ATI cards primarily because of Linux support. The nvidia drivers are much better.
