11. Anything else which you would like to say?

Just confirmed price from local dealer

> Gigabyte GTX 760 OC windforce @ Rs 15700
>MSI GTx 760 OC @ Rs 16900
> i3 4150 @ Rs 7700

I researched a bit and found out that i3 4150 outperforms FX 6300. Should i go with i3 4150 and gigabyte GFX?
 
i5 4440 : 11290
GIGABYTE B85M DS3H : 5190
1 TB SEAGATE : 3370
8 GB Kingston HyperX 1600 : 3476
HP DVD RW : 904
GTX 960 : 15390 / 750Ti : 9490 /R9 270x : 12190
CORSAIR VS 550 : 2928
DeepCool Tesseract : 2750

Total
R9 270x : 41468 (recommended)
750Ti : 38768 (within budget)
960 : 44668 (best performance)

VAT needs to be added in this price.
If you are coming to nehru place, once you get quotation from a shop, search in nearby Shops. They will try to and some will give the same products at even cheaper rate.

Where did you get those ram and HDD prices???
http://www.costtocost.in/list/pricelist.pdf

This is the URL to a pricelist document for one of the most biggest shop in Nehru Palace. Apparently their rates are mostly cheaper than any other shops.
Cost to cost.

But keep in kind that these rates are not inclusive of VAT. So you will have to add 12.4% or 14% of VAT on the listed price in the document . ( not sure what is the latest vat rate in Delhi ).

gaming go with intel, multi tasking go with AMD.
i3 has only 2 cores no multi threading..?

if it has HT, even better.

Yes an i3 would easily smoke out the FX6300 in single core performance , however if you consider playing Multiplayer FPS/CPu intensive games then stay away from i3.
It's more advisable to go with i5 because it is a mixture of multiple powerful cores and ample single thread speeds , which will go handy with any sort of games you will play.

And as far as the GPU is concerned get the ASUS Strix GTX960 because it comes Factoryoverclocked and offers 10-15% more performance than the stock reference clock from Nvidia. They are dead silent and cold blooded even at higher adrenaline rush. I am sure that would smoke out the 760 too!
If you can hunt a little bit , you should be able to find a Strix GTX960 2GB for 16,500 or so. Though , I would strongly advise you to wait and spend a little more to grab the 4GB vRAM variant.

Yup, these are without VAT, but once you get a quotation in hand and go to other shops, they get same components at lesser price.
I got a PC for my friend a week back which costed 1.68 at C2C. Same PC costed 1.62 at IT Depot shop. Buying from nehru place needs lots of patience to get best rates.

Guys bought Gigabyte GTX960 Overclock Windforce @ 15970 (All Inc). Seems like a steal to to me. This card slightly outperforms other cards (Asus, MSI) in overclocking as well. The temp doesnt go above 55C. GOT Witcher 3 FREE! as well.

Sadly caviar blue TB is not available at the quoted price in this thread. Went with Caviar green. ill bear those measly 5 sec delays in load times.

Should have waited for some more days amd new gpus are on the horizon expect nvidia and amd older gpu prices to get slashed. That include gtx960 as well.

i bought the gtx960 from Earthsyscom Pvt. Ltd. a wholesaler and an authorised nvidia distributor in ahmedabad. these people offered to give me extra game codes for AMD cards even though i bought Nvidia sadly i forgot and left those codes at their table desk.
Game Codes?? Which games?? So that means they are giving codes who buy from them?? Or is it like if we buy GPU from online stores then also we do get it inside thw box???

Froyo.

Well i believe the new amd cards will take little more time to reach India after its launch and a little further more time for its price to decrease (assuming that amd creates a similar performing card and sells it at much lower price.) if there is little price diff. nvidia wouldnt care as their cards are usually little exp than amd which is fair if you ask me. Nvidia has better drivers which perform consistently in all games.

PLUS THE WITCHER 3 OFFER HAS EXPIRED NOW!! I saved 60$ as well by purchasing before 1st june. Torrenting good games is not my way. I like to support the developers. I m sure nvidia is giving a bit of its revenue from the new GTX cards to CD project red.

my CA final exams got over and i would be wasting away my freetime by not gaming now and waiting for AMD cards :p
