Budget PC for programming and mild gaming


1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run? (Stupid answers like 'gaming' or 'office work' will not work. Be exact. Which games? Which applications? Avoid the word 'et cetera.')
Ans: Home PC
Linux(debian or ubuntu) : Python programming on PyCharm(requires about same resources as android studio), heavy browsing, libreoffice, Little bit MATLAB. Sometimes I'd like to leave computer on overnight for performing simulations, so hoping that it won't overheat much. Light gaming(civ v & tf2). Watching videos

2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then mention this too.
Ans: 40k max including monitor (1080p minimum?) If more is required I'll have wait for couple more months for paycheck :p. I'll add graphics card later in that case.

3. Planning to overclock?
Ans: nope.

4. Which Operating System are you planning to use?
Ans: debian/ubuntu + windows 10

5. How much hard drive space is needed?
Ans: 1TB, a small(60-120GB) ssd would really help as boot drive.

6. Do you want to buy a monitor? If yes, please mention which screen size and resolution do you want. If you already have a monitor and want to reuse it, again mention the size and resolution of monitor you have.
Ans: yep, 1080p if possible.

7. Which components you DON'T want to buy or which components you already have and plan on reusing?
Ans: keyboard, mouse, UPS

8. When are you planning to buy the system?
Ans: Next month

9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?
Ans: I'll assemble it.

10. Where do you live? Are you buying locally? Are you open to buying stuff from online shops if you don't get locally?
Ans: Mumbai, locally from lamington road or online.

11. Anything else which you would like to say?
Ans: I use nvidia specific libraries(plus linux has **** support for amd cards), so graphic card must be from nvidia and CPU from Intel(at least i3, please don't include pentium).
