This is for a friend. Please give suggestions as he has no gfx card right now and zebronics economy 450W which would definitely need replacement.

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: Playing Games. such as NFS the latest one, BF3 and many other games.

2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then mention this too.
Ans: 10k, may extend upto 12k

3. Planning to overclock?
Ans: no

4. Which Operating System are you planning to use?
Ans: Windows 8. Cannot upgrade. Will this be an issue?

5. How much hard drive space is needed?
Ans: no HDD needed

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: 1600X900 resolution

7. Which components you DON'T want to buy or which components you already have and plan on reusing?
Ans: Just need to buy GFX card and smps.

Sorry but the budget can't be increased. Please give suggestions for a 10k budget and a 12k budget.

You can get 750ti and Antec BP300 in 12k. Just look for good deals online/offline.


try 650 ti instead of R7 250x, if the budget cannot be increased (750 ti is ideal as maxwell has a significant bump in performance)
