When it comes to hdd,luck is the most important factor. Also it is my experience that 7200rpm drives run hotter than 5400rpm drives & in a hot country like India,it does affect the durability a bit.I would not suggest getting a 7200rpm hdd larger than 2tb & even for 2tb it is better to get a 5400rpm hdd especially if you are already using a ssd for OS & software.

asus,gigabyte & msi have a wide network of dealers in India hence their more availability compared to asrock. Btw mdcomputers is the ofifcial distributor of asrock in India.

10-12 years is a very long time in pc market but rashi peripherals is still considered decent.Currently the msi after sales support is the worst in India & gigabyte has the best after sales support if you contact their official rep on reddit( eddie_edits (u/eddie_edits) - Reddit ).

thanks dear. i will not get any HDD right now then as I have a 3 year old WD Blue 2TB 5400RPM.
i also have good experience of seagate, dell, asus and gigabyte though it is of some 10 years back. i had dealt with the same vendor for some 12 years in my last job. he never pushed anything and always helped us. unfortunately he is now only into networking products mainly of DLink and i am also out of touch with people in the market. still i have noticed till now almost every shopkeeper who doesn't know you will try to push whatever he has in stock. it is because of this i am always apprehensive with people selling computer hardware. thanks again dear.

Adata is not available in my city right now. Corsair 3200MHZ 8GB is available for 3100.
so i will be getting this (X 2) ADATA XPG GAMMIX D30 8GB (8GBX1) DDR4 3200MHZ RAM at 2475.
someone warned me to check if it supports the motherboard i have before purchasing it online.

3 choices and i think 175R is the best.
CORSAIR Carbide Series 175R RGB @ 3450
Corsair Carbide Series 100R Mid-Tower Case (CC-9011075-WW) @ 2950
Antec VSK 10 Window Highly Functional Micro-ATX Case @ 2750

Amd Ryzen 5 3400G APU is available for 13000
Corsair CX450 PSU is available for 3500. the distributor offered it for 3481.

Seller couldn't get any info on Crucial MX500 and asked time till Monday.
he offered Wd 240 SSD SATA @ 2250. this looks like WD Green.
Another one said WD Blue is best with very good speed and approximate price is 3900.

Crucial is available for 3150 + 35 with Primeagbg. should i get it or try WD Blue?

Unless you are extremely unlucky(in which case nothing would help anyway) any recent ddr4 ram should work fine with any B450 mobo even if not at its max rated speed.

Crucial MX500 is the 2nd best budget ssd & only behind samsung 860 evo. WD blue is slower than MX500,only model of WD which performs better than these is WD black but that is nvme model.Get mx500 from primeabgb.

Received ASRock B450 Pro4 MotherBoard, AData Gammix RAM and Crucial MX500 SSD. Some ssd mounting bracket would also be required. I will check about rest tomorrow in local market.

Just a reminder,it may look easy but I spent ~10 min trying to figure out the correct way to place the screws as there are no instructions/pics.:-D (you have to place the ssd "inside" the bracket.i.e.such that ssd sides are parallel to the elevated 2 sides/walls of the bracket).

that happens with me as well - the usual trial n error method. thanks dear.
one local seller said - "bracket? fit it using two screws and it will be fine" :D

i was browsing the board, saw this somewhere and clicked on https://www.amazon.in/Antec-NX-800-Micro-ATX-Preinstalled/dp/B07YHCKQR6/ref=sr_1_13?crid=AAFCNM4N08XQ&keywords=antec+cabinet&qid=1577422598&s=electronics&sprefix=antec+cabinet,electronics,277&sr=1-13
sister saw this and asked me to buy this as this is flashy and she likes it. is this ok to get? what are the benefits for this price? i saw one con - it has one usb2 and one usb3 in front but 175r has 2 USB3.
Check the reviews and buy. But I think Antec has some of the best cabinets around since NX800 has 2x 200mm fans in the front and 1x 120mm fan at the rear. You can add more fans if you want to keep the CPU cool.

Why.. Any problem with ANT cabinets
Nobody from the forums did an RMA regarding anything from ANT. There used to be a Rep who used to suggest ANT builds made by ANT which used to be atrociously costly compared with what we used to suggest.
That's why.
Check from here and enquire about RMA and ask fellow members and then take a decision:

What Level of RMA a cabinet will require, and its form amazon so easy replacement for 10 days I guess.

I feel like its a good value plus features cabinet after watching reviews on YouTube. No personal experience.

Antec NX800 review?

Rule of thumb is to go by extensive reviews of pc cabinets on major international tech sites along with some practical application of Indian climate(like dust,humidity,heat) to cabinet design(e.g.side & front glass at same time is a big no for Indian summers).
