Edurance rating is low on these cheap drives.
Silicon Power one has double the read write speed but at bit lower endurance (125 TBW, 25 TBW/year) and Gigabyte one has better speed and double endurance (300 TBW, 60TBW/year).
Unless OP is using it as a scratch drive for video editing, he will not cross even 5TBW/year. My current boot ssd has ~1TBW in ~110 days, game drive 660p is at ~940GBW.
PS: His budget was 15-18k. Not sure how he would be able to sell his old components for ~10k.

If he wants a good PC that can last long he has to invest now.

Thanks for the reply,

I believe all these have 3 years warranty !

Is this cpu noisy? My previous AMD CPU was very noisy and sometimes it was unbearable.

Do i need extra fan to cool the CPU or the one comes with package is ok?

Thank you in advance.

Some have more than 3 years warranty(psu 5 years,ram 10 years).

Older days are no more,AMD finally caught up with intel with the release of their ryzen processors in 2017 & currently ryzen 3xxx series processors are better than intel processors overall.Just change the mobo in above suggested config to Buy Gigabyte B450M Gaming at Lowest Price in India - mdcomputers.in (2 ram slots) OR Buy Gigabyte B450M DS3H at Lowest Price in India - mdcomputers.in (4 ram slots)
