Right off the assembly line
Hello everyone,

I decided to buy a 70k budget pic configuration that is listed in the sticky note. I'm from Hyderabad. It seems that the MSI H97M-G43 motherboard is not available anymore. Can you please suggest an alternate mobo. The dealers have suggested the MSI Z97 pcmate/guard pro? Also, I'm going with the i5 4440 cpu so please suggest a mobo compatible with this cup and the zotac gtx 970 card.

Thanks in advacnce.

Hi Sunil,

Thanks for the response. I want to buy 32 GB of RAM as I will also be using it for work purpose. For that, I'll have to cut off some parts,

How about I go with the i5 4440 CPU itself and Kingston Fury 8x4 RAM. Also, do you think I need the extra fan. And I'll go with the stock Logitech combo keyboard and mouse only. Thanks for the shop, will check for Mr. Ramu

Corrected the table below as per your requirements. You don't need 32GB of RAM but 16GB is more than enough for any kind of intensive applications. So go with 16GB of RAM.OK.

Paytm is ripping customers like this:

Asus Strix GTX960 is sold locally for 16k where as in paytm it is sold for 19k but after cashback ripoff it comes to 14.5k
Cashback means cash should be refunded back to your bank account not paytm account
This is just ripping off or cheating customers

PS: Discount is what Amazon gave during Lightning Deals in July & October 2015. Now same is about to happen from 21-23rd Jan 2016. So buddies happy shopping using amazon.
16k GPU has been given for 8k. This is genuine Discount or cashback.
