    My budget is 900$(might go for 30$ more for some big difference)
    I am looking to build something like this
    Intel Core i3 2100
    Intel DH67VR
    4GB 1333Mhz DDR3
    Sapphire HD 7850 OC
    750GB+ HDD
    Asus VW227D
    Cooler Master Elite 311
    Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 550W
    Is this rig is ok?
    I am only going with Intel CPU not AMD but for GPU nvidia or AMD both are welcomed
    And please only suggest Intel Mobos no Asus, Gigabyte or something.
    Please Do not add links of newegg.com or amazon.com because i live in india and they don't ship in india.

    Why no Asus or Gigabyte or "somethin"? Better avaliability?

    Me personally would go for an i5 (the 3450S to be precise), but if you have no money for it you have no money for it. The CPU is the weak spot there. How much is memory in India? I would surely go for 8GB, in most parts of the world it's so cheap nowadays and it is actually nice to have (this of course depends on what you do, but if you're like me you sometimes want to run a couple of virtual machines at the same time and a bunch of other stuff and then it's nice to have it, i'm not sure if games use that much nowadays).

    Kinda tough to overclock an Intel MB. So I guess you don't need a K chip ether?

    Where do you want to buy from?

    First I don't trust asus or any thirdparty mobo.
    Second I can't increase my budget from 930$ not even a $ So i have to buy a i3 and for ram i will upgrade it in 3-5 months after purchase
    Third I don't want to OC my CPU i only oc my GPU
    and last My CPU is only weak stop is it so what should i do with it should i get a weaker GPU to get a powerful CPU

    You would be better going with a AMD Phenom II X4 970 then a i3 2100. They are roughly the same price. And performance is better with the AMD at stock clocks.

    Where can you buy from?

    Any local computer shop in india or ebay.in or flipkart.com
    Does amd is a very heated processor because i have heared that amd's processor are known for overheating is that true.
    wait i can buy a i5 2310 hardly in my budget is it okay i bet it is better then i3 2100 for sure

    If you could budge that in it would be better.

    Modern games like quads better.

    EDIT: And I don't want to be harsh, but there is no reason to not trust "third party" motherboards. If you have boards of other brands that are cheaper than the Intel one I don't see a reason to buy the Intel board. But that is my opinion, in the end the decision is yours.

    for processor, recommend i5 2310 if u can find one.. I see only 2320 nowadays which costs Rs.1000 more..

    If u prefer Intel MB, I would suggest DH67BL instead of DH67VR. It has more connectivity while costing just around Rs.200 more..
    DH67BL has following additonal connections:
    +3 SATA II (3Gbps) ports
    +1 eSATA (Rear I/O panel) shared with 1 SATA II port
    +2 USB 2.0 Ports (Rear I/O panel)
    Click links showing rear I/O panel for DH67BL and DH67VR

    As with the PSU, I am not sure of the price of the CM eXtreme P-Plus 550W, but I would go with the SeaSonic S12II 520. Its 80 Plus 'Bronze' rated compared to 70%+ efficiency rating of the CM model.. I have used the PSU for one of my friends build and the quality is top-notch.

    not sure if u already know these sites to refer prices deltapage.com, primeabgb.com, theitwares.com, theitdepot.com, techshop.in, golchhait.com, bitfang.com

    Why don't you trust third party mobos? Thats got to be the wierdest thing ive ever heard. Intel motherboards are really poopy.

    Some third party boards are actually cheaper and much better then Intels.

    You might find it strange, but its a common opinion around India that Intel boards are more reliable & trouble-free compared to 3rd party vendor's MBs. It is to do with the brand perception. Atleast this is the case with budget-oriented boards.

    But with more expensive builds, people do go with brands like Asus, Gigabyte & MSi.

    Wow. Really?
    First time I heard something like that.
    FYI, Intel motherboards are manufactured at Foxconn. Same place as Gigabyte, ASRock and MSI, for example. Not to mention you can find Foxconn's own brand of motherboards on the market, which strike an interesting resemblance with some Intel counterparts (but mostly Gigabyte boards, though). They just have different color schemes.
    I don't actually like the low-end Intel motherboards. Worse layouts I've ever set my eyes on.

    EDIT: Oh, and before you reply with something like "but I'm sure Intel has better quality control"...no. It's pretty much the same all around. Price difference is based on the brand, not quality.

    If you wanted a reliable board then MSI shouldn't be one of your choices.

    My bad, up there. I recalled it wrong.
    Intel motherboards have actually more to do with ECS boards. Still most Foxconn boards = Gigabyte boards and ASRock/MSI are also built there.

    Not sure which MB are u talking abt.. all H67 chipset boards(micro ATX & above size) support 32GB max of RAM.. that means 8GB max per DIMM slot..

    Regarding the monitor u listed - Asus VW227D, I guess this is a pretty outdated monitor as it supports ONLY D-sub(VGA) input signal (read analog)..
    Given its price of around 8000Rs, I would not recommend this one...
    go for any other monitor which has atleast DVI-D (read digital) input, if not HDMI.. for example, Acer S221HQL or BenQ G2222HDL or Dell ST2220M are DVI input monitors between around 8100 with LED backlighting - another feature missing in Asus VW227D..

    also, u must decide if u prefer 'matte' or 'glossy' monitor panels... I prefer 'matte' panels as glossy ones are more reflective..

    Well i like the BenQ G2222HDL so what will be the price of it!
    And Dell ST2220M's link is dead.
    Do you think that i can get a monitor with the res of 1920x1200 ?

    7600 atleast as per Bitfang

    corrected the Dell link.. check again
    note that the Dell model is glossy finish

    1920x1200 is 16:10 aspect ratio which is pretty rare(read expensive) and usually available only in 24" size and above.. as far as I know, Dell U2412M(24 inch) @ 18000 is one of the cheapest monitors with this resolution..
