    Gaming PC for 50,000, such that I can upgrade GPU with a 20k purchase later on

    I totally agree with you, but this is for two reasons: First, I just don't have that kind of money right now and second, I might not decide to go for it at all. I mostly play Dota 2, and it runs on high settings for this config. So if I don't find myself indulging anymore, I'll just stick with this.

    IPL - Indian Problem League???

    t20 is an awesome format.. and follows greatly with the 4hour-1meal-2drinks type of sports. It is entertaining and fast paced, something i really miss in Test Matches and has run rates way over 6, which i miss in ODIs. This also gives us a chance to discover new talent. The only thing i don't...
