I know, over the budget but 750 Ti is minimum what you should get
Get this

I'd say skip the graphic card now as you'll be compromising a lot to include in in the budget. Get the forum's 30k config -

It's enough for playing games at low settings at 720p. Add a graphic card later.

OP has to indefinitely increase his budget to get best GAMING RIG under 40k otherwise compromising on one or other is worthless.

Great, I won't buy it thanks..
I was just thinking if I should opt for i5 processor and how much would I have to spend extra

It's best to get the i3 config I suggested. You can easily run all games at low settings with it. There is nothing else you can get in this budget.


Thanks you all guys,

I came across a PC built in Aug 2014, I wonder if this would be good for me??

I confirmed that the seller is not a shopkeeper and asked for more details.

Sell My desktop Its New good working condition Intel Core i5-4440 Proc - Mumbai - Computers, Laptops & Accessories

Ask him about giving a detailed config, what ram, HDD, GPU (i suspect its another of those GT 210 :lol: ), monitor and its resolution, the cabinet and the PSU. Reply back when you get the details.
