My budget is $900 ( Rs.55000), I need to assemble a gaming PC for under that, including a monitor ( if possible).
I have already jotted down a few basic components, please tell me what kind of performance I can expect from these(In-terms of game-play) and also suggest improvements or different configurations.
Thank you in advance.

Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-Z87-D3HP

Processor : i5 4670k

Ram: Corsair vengeance (1x8 GB)

HDD: WD Caviar Green 1Tb

Video card: Radeon R7 250 (X2GD5)

Looks decent. But my computer is an 1000$ budget and its plenty better in the gaming department. here are some tips

For MOBO: Dont go cheap but also dont buy one with stuff you will never need. For that processor (The same one I have actually, very good processor) I would recommend the ASRock z87 Extreme4

For CPU: That can easily handle most modern single-threaded games right now. And even the VERY FEW that utilize hyper-threading it still will play very well on.

For RAM: Vengence is very good ram but you can find ram for similar performance for a better price. My Recommendation would be: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 2x4gb. The mobo i recommended utilizes dual channel ram. so having two ram sticks will give better performance.

For HDD: I would recommend the WD Caviar Blue series, its like 8 dollars more but its 7200rpm instead of 5400 which will make a difference in game loading times

For Video Card: This is where that money you save from the ram will come into place. The radeon r7 250 will be able to play games but it will not play them at the quality you can get for a 900$ computer. For that budget I would recommend the r9-270x. Much better. Hits fairly good FPS for a budget computer.

For PSU: You are gonna want at least a 500w I will attach a pcpartpicker link for all of this.

For Case: I highly recommend the Antec 900 comes with 4 fans and is a fairly big mid-tower case

For Monitor: This will also be in the ppp link. Dont forget a DVI cord I will include that also.


This is a pretty good computer for 930$ after rebates. Its a little over budget but it would perform well. IF you really cant go over budget then you could borrow a monitor from a friend or look around craigslist or ebay and you could probably find a cheaper one used.

Not really. I mean you can find high-end AMD CPUs but when you compare high-end processors imho intel wins it.

For reference: take a look at this CPU hierarchy chart on Tom's Hardware: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o...

As you can see at the top TH agrees with me. The intel high-ends reign supreme.
