It makes no sense ordering or suggesting part from US Internet Stores, the Freight cost will be prohibitive.

There are MANY PC-Building manuals online.
Who suggested OP order from a US store?
You did in your first post, a Newegg link.

Britton, the Free shipping is mostly WITHIN US/Canada.
if you check a bit you will see that very few of the stores you usians link to, including Newegg, have international shipping, and if they have, the total price will be higher due to shipping costs.

International Shipping NO NO NO

IMO that sucks.

Looking at currency converters 50.000 Rupees is about 800USD and 500UKPounds. I think for a beginner it would be better and more financially sensible to buy a ready assembled PC with Windows 7 pre installed. If you build your own don't foget that one of the most expensive individual items is the operating system. You will need as a minimum a retail version of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit which will eat away at least 20% of your budget so look at a total of only 40,000 Rupees for components. Don't forget as well that the only warranty you get is on each individual component. If you have a problem you have no overall warranty on the build it self.
As I said i think a ready mede job would suit you best. Then find an old clapped out PC to practice taking apart and re assemblig. You might find the tiny connections within especially on the motherboard a bit dauntng. Also if you go down the self build route make sure you understand about static dangers and using thermal paste!

You're right, I misread things, sorry. Amazon does ship to a few other countries outside the US but only on specific items. I have friends in Australia and the UK who would like lower prices.

We dropped the "yank" thing in 1865.

Actually I said this. "You can take a look here at the many PC bundles provided. Of course, you'll need to find a local retailer."

@ Britton30 (US)

The song Over There from 1917, mentions Yanks.

And in 1942-45 we were still singing it.

How about the NY Yankees?

We still use the term.

Risking a bit of a flame-war here, but I do not count Baseball among IT-related Skills.

... I don't know what I meant with that...but felt appropriate.

The point was we still use the words Yanks and Yankees.

Sorry, if using old songs offended you in order to prove my point.

Not at all, John, it was not I who reacted to the term, I just adapted to the reaction.

Are we not getting a bit far O/T?

OP, you'll have to look up the prices of these components from retailers you can buy from. It may be outside of your price range but it's somewhere to start.

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97
CPU: AMD FX-6350
GPU: Radeon HD6670
RAM: Samsung or Kingston 1600MHz. 8GB to start off with to keep your budget manageable.
PSU: A branded one, I like Corsair myself. A 450W should do you.
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black. Great drives.

Forget the SSD for your budget.
