Hey guys, I'm planning to build a pc for 1080p gaming. Is there any way to increase my odds of landing a 1660 ti. Also, for now I'm going with i5-11600k to work with onboard graphics and play esports titles. Wise approach?
Yes intel for igpu is wise approach but instead of going for 11600k get a 10600k or 11400 for now. That way you can save money and upgrade to a flagship processor later. Make sure you get a mobo that supports both 10th and 11th gen cpus.
Post a new thread with the filled questionnaire in the pc components section for better response to your query.

Thank you. I just saved 10k. Would be recommend primeabgb for buying off the components?

Open your own thread here. In your first post answer the "Building a new pc? Answer these" questionnaire.



I don't know about their shop at lamington road as I am not from Mumbai. But their online store is suggested in the forums over amazon.

Better get i5 11400 & save money. Not much benefit going to i5 11600K, Use saved money on good mobo & CPU cooler, anyways you will have to invest in them even if you get 11600K. How much is your budget for those BTW? After unlocking power limits, i5 11400 draws above 120W. So I will recommend something like 15-16k for mobo & at least 4.5k for cooler.

^after looking at the 10 games average above, is it really worth going for 11400F instead of 10400F? After 10400F, it makes more sense to go for 11600K, if spending more, no?

Better get 10600k with a 11thgen mobo and upgrade to 11900k down the road .
The only case with 11400 then being is that it will let you put ram faster than 2666mhz right out of the box whereas with 10600k your fast ram would run at 2666 untill you get that 11900k.

Intel platform needs more money in the mobos coz not all b560 mobo have great components and the cheap z590 boards have been labelled a big no on various sites. In that regard if you are selecting a 25k and over mobo the 11600k doesnt have value anymore. 11400 will give you that freedom.

The 10400's performance there is boosted a bit due to XMP loaded. In reality, its limited to 2666MHz which impacts performance a bit with even mid range GPU. Without XMP, i5 10400 performs like R5 3600:

But you can get a B560 mobo with i5 10400 to use XMP. The i5 11400F is like 17k with sellers, so like 3-4k more expensive over i5 10400F. Better single core performance will help 11400F in the long run IMO.

I meant for those who will upgrade to a flagship cpu for them getting b560 and z590 makes sense.
Now budget z590 are not recommended according to review sites.
So a person investing in a z590 will most likely pay atleast 25k for the mobo and then buying 11600k would be waste if they are to go with a cpu upgrade later on.
In such scenario people can go with 11400 and 10600k to pump more money into mobo and ram.
10600k will downclock ram and run it at 2666mhz max.
11400 will allow to go beyond 2666mhz upto 5033mhz with overclocking.

The 11th gen mobos supporting the 10th gen as well is great for gamers. Also considering that both 11400 and 10600k have igpu which is great for present gpu scene.

Intel 10th gen will use XMP on B560. B460 chip lacks XMP support, Intel likely put it because of pressure AMD is putting.

PC related subreddits reports GPUs have started showing up more in US stores with slightly reduced prices now. I think India should also have better stocks slowly in few coming months.

I even emailed them and once they told there will be a Sale . Now reading from your email i understand that it got cancelled and thats why I didnt find any buy button even after getting logged in.
I have sent them several inquiries after that but no response came. So if you get any recent mail from them can you please let me know

Thanks

I will post here. I sent another inquiry on Friday. Let's see. One this that makes me wonder is if they really faced technical issue, why it is taking them so long for the next sale. It should not take so much to fix.

Quadro P2200 at 34K - is it priced right or over priced?
(1650 4 gb cards are priced around 20 to 25K approx). (P2200 is 5gb and has almost double the cuda cores)

I need it for work only. No gaming.
