You can't buy gpu right now so either you should look at laptops or place order for custom pc build.
But in your budget you can get a laptop around 120k and add a monitor only if you need the large screen.

Or just build a system less gpu

Thanks for reply. By the way. My priority is PC so Laptop is not at all option. Coz sometime i might render overnight too. at least for 1-2 months i have a Monitor with me so is not a priority as of now. Also i am thinking to buy a cheap whichever available GPU for 5K-6K for now and buy a good one (2070 or 3060) once price reduced and available. What you think? and What you say about the configuration i have posted

Laptops aren't as powerful as a similarly priced desktop, even with overpriced GPUs. Laptops are for those who need portability.

Like at 1.2L you get a laptop with 8 core i7 + RTX 3060 100W (Helios 300). In desktop terms, its performance will be similar to the old R5 3600 + GTX 1660Ti (somewhere near that, surely below desktop 2060). You can build a PC with RTX 3060 for around 1.2L w/o monitor, assuming 60-65k for 3060.

For rendering amd is the way to go.
If desktop replacement laptop does not appeal to you then custom build is the way to go.
Be warned though unlike prebuilt pc custom pc builders put trial windows which you will have to specify to upgrade to full version.

Custom pc builders you should look at are:
Volted pc, ant pc, smc international, MVP gaming.

You can keep in touch with rptech to be updated about when they have stock back.
3060 should be priced at 36k
3070 at 44k
3080 at 62k
3090 at 133k.

PSU - Corsair CV650 80+ bronze - 5k

Cabinet - Lian Li 215 or other mid tower ATX - 6k

Total - 143.6k

Due to Intel CPU with iGPU, it will run without a dedicated GPU.

How about the 145k strix g15 with 5900hx and 3060. The 3060 is more than 100w in that isnt it.

That has 115-130W TDP range. I think there's G17 with RTX 3070 around 1.5L as well, 3070 at 115W might outperform desktop RTX 2060, might be close to 2060S (that's just 10% above 2060). R9 5900HX should be barely above R7 3700X for multicore performance. But a lot of these performance numbers depends on laptop chassis, esp thermals.

Thanks for reply. By the way. Is Artic Freezer better that CM ML240L? DO you know if i can find any performance benchmark chart for MSI z490 A pro( as it looks good).
What you suggest on GPU? should i wait for to let prices go down. as i think to buy a cheapest of cheap gpu for timebeing. coz 60K is over budget for me.
also Lian Li is better that CM MB511 ?
and what you suggest if i go for AMD build with similar configuration then how much overall difference will be moneywise. Like this:

Build1:
CPU - Intel i9 10850K - 37k

CPU cooler - ARCTIC Freezer 34 Esports Duo - 4.4k

Mobo - MSI Z490 A Pro - 15.5k

RAM - 2x8GB DDR4 3200MHz - 7.5k

GPU -

M.2 SSD - WD SN550 500GB - 5k*

HDD - WD/Seagate 1TB - 3.2k

PSU - Corsair CV650 80+ bronze (I prefer 650W gold )

Cabinet - Lian Li 215 or other mid tower ATX - 6k


Vs
Build 2:
CPU - AMD Ryzen 3900X around 41K

CPU cooler - ARCTIC Freezer 34 Esports Duo - 4.4k

Mobo - Asus x570 TUF- 18K

RAM - 2x8GB DDR4 3200MHz - 7.5k

GPU - 2070/3060

M.2 SSD - WD SN550 500GB - 5k*

HDD - WD/Seagate 1TB - 3.2k

PSU - Corsair CV650 80+ bronze (I prefer 650W gold )

Cabinet - Lian Li 215 or other mid tower ATX - 6k

Some prebuilts to give you an idea what you can expect with a custom build from these players.



Omega could you check if there are any imbalance or dicey components in any of these configs.

1. Can't say if ML240L is better or worse but might be better. ARCTIC option is cheaper though & great for its price. It likely won't handle 200W+ CPU which an OC'd i9 can do, but should be good enough to run at stock.

2. Mobo VRM test, good budget mobo indeed

3. I agree GPUs are overpriced. If it works for you, get a cheap GPU or a used one for now.

4. Yes, Lian Li 215 is better, best budget case IMO. Check review by Gamers Nexus.

5. With R9 3900X you will get 12c/24t CPU which is better than i9 10900K in multicore loads. There are some apps that might prefer Intel CPUs though. Check review by Hardware Unboxed as a start point for benchmarks. AMD CPUs lack iGPU, so a dGPU is mandatory to boot it. With R9 3900X you can postpone cooler purchase for some time & use stock cooler.

My cooler recommendations:
Cooler - Noctua NH D15 - 8.5k
or Deepcool Gamerstorm Assassin III - 7.5k
or Lian Li Galahad 240mm AIO - 9.5k
or ARCTIC Freezer 34 Esports Duo - 4.4k

OP's requirement is CPU intensive.

Cypher seems good, Kill Streak not so much. That Garuda from techdreams looks good for OP except for CPU cooler & cabinet (NZXT H510 looks good but runs hot).

Is it true that 6700xt is better than 3070? And how can we make sure the deepcool smps is the one linus recommends and not the variant he warns against. Maybe op should ask for photographs as well before placing order.

All other configs on volted were above 150k after this.

Maybe OP they should get in touch with these builders and get a quote from all of them. Especially MVP gaming coz they require account creation to access the configs.

Who is the distributor for radeon cards in India?

You have to ask seller for exact part used.

How do you feel about qudro cards I did find a 2 gb quadro for 14.5k and a 4gb for 25k.
Since the purpose is not gaming we could consider these.
