    *This configuration is recommended for people who require higher processing power for content creation (like CAD), compiling, and rendering software. This configuration provides much better processing power at the cost of graphical power. If your purpose for buying the pc is gaming and not content creation, then this PC is not for you.

    Re: PC Buying Guide and Suggested Configs 2017 Q2

    It might be a little bit overkill, but at the moment 1080p is the most commonly used resolution. 1440p and 4k monitors are getting cheaper by the day but they're still pretty costly.
    The 125k rig guarantees some future-proofness, so if somebody wants to buy a 1440p or 4k monitor, they can do so in the future when they have the funds for it.
    As for the 620w power supply, I think it's enough, but I'm not completely sure.
    Gonna have to confirm that with someone else.

    Ohk.. I think 750w is good if going for future proof.

    As well do you have link to buy Zotac GTX 1070 8GB AMP for 34k? as I have check few online sites & on all it's around 37k or more.

    Great thread

    IMO .. few suggestions

    1) Antec VP is fine for budget builds , but atleast rigs above 35k replace it with Corsair CX atleast.

    2) Most people would be fine with H110 board , instead of a B250 board saving Rs 2500 and putting it in better graphic card ( just add the additional bios update requirement ) in a few months all h110 board will be coming with updated BIOS

    3) Core i3 7100 is waste of money , Use G4560 and Save that 4-5k and add that into better gpu like Rx470/SSD or put more money and get i5

    I think the price brackets should be limited to just 5 (25k, 50k, 75k, 100k, 125k). With 13 you are just selecting the components to fit the price bracket, not the components that go well together and balanced.
    For 125k, i would require more than 120GB SSD, a 144Hz monitor and a proper mechanical keyboard and gaming mouse, a fully modular Tier 1 or 2 80+Gold PSU ...
    And i3 is kind of waste at this point as G4560 doesn't bottleneck a GTX 1050 Ti.

    Just search on Amazon, you'll find multiple 1070s for the price.
    One such is ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Mini 8GB GDDR5 VR Ready Super Compact Graphics Card (ZT-P10700G-10M):Amazon:Electronic

    Even the Zotac AMP! is for 33k

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'll work on changing that in a bit. I'm really sorry, right now I've got my 12th boards going on xD
    But as soon as I get some time I'll update.
    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Again good idea, but the thing is there's a lot of consumers who would want a readymade config at every 10k.
    And if somebody wants a config according to their personal preference they can always post a new thread.
    As for making the rigs balanced, I'll definitely look into it for Q2.
    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Oh alright, I'll change it to GALAX.

    I'm looking at a 50k budget config (without SSD, monitor, KB/M) for a colleague for casual gaming (not latest titles like BF1 or Wildlands, somewhat older ones like GTA V, Witcher 3) and movies purpose. May I know what the above suggested config will offer in 1080p gaming? Ultra or high or medium?

    I'm pretty sure you'll be able to crank the settings up to ultra, and still get a decent framerate.

    He just might want to wait for the mid-range AMD Ryzen.

    Get Pentium G4560 instead of i3-7100 and a h110 motherboard with latest BIOS update instead of b250 to save money. With the money saved and adding some more, you can add a gtx 1050ti mini later.

    No motherboard comes with on-board graphics these days.

    Intel processors have integrated GPU.

    H110 motherboard dosent support HDMI. so not a good buy for me. Gigabyte B250 does support HDMI. corect me if i am wrong.

    i dont think i would update my graphics card ( not a game fan). so, now should i go for i3 7100 or G4560.

    PS. AMD options are not given here.
