Hi there community members , i was looking to build a budget gaming pc around 30k and pentium g4560 seems to be right choice but the thing is that i cant find it online with a decent price, all the listings are either priced very high (2-3x the actual price) or are out of stock . I have also read some threads that rumors are that intel may discontinue this chip. what are your recommendations? should i wait for new stocks and maybe even for ryzen 3 or should buy just the i3? Thanks.

Don't wait for Ryzen 3 esp. when you want to fit things in this budget. If Ryzen 3 comes with no iGPU, definitely your budget won't be good enough to buy everything. Wait for G4560, if they don't restock, get the cheapest possible or go for i3/older Pentium.

DO NOT wait for Ryzen. I would have built my rig 2 months earlier but I waited as members told me Vega's launch will bring down prices. Look at the scenario now, I am not able to even find the parts that I want. When Ryzen 3 is launched, I am sure there will be considerable change in the market.

With 30k, you're looking to build a rig with dedicated GPU?

Let the prices come down or buy locally for 8.5k approx. Normally computer component prices are high in Amazon always when compared with other sites.

Buying G4560 for 8.5k is a bad idea.It is better to keep any pc building on hold & wait for prices to come down to normal levels.

official statement from Intel is that they haven't discontinued g4560.. it's out of stock because of high demand , Intel may be supplying them in small quantities as it has impacted i3 sales...

it is not worth it to pay more than 5.5-6k max for this cpu..

wait for ryzen 3 1200 full quad core.. it is launching on 27 July.. no Confirmation on price yet but expect it around 9k .. so if g4560 is not available simply buy ryzen 3 .. and my guess is when ryzen 3 starts selling we will also get good availability of g4560

Ryzen 3 hitting the market in couple of weeks, hopefully we can find in our market soon.

Expecting Ryzen 3 will be priced around i3 :Fingerx:
