Hey, this is my first post on TH
Anyways, I want o build a GAMING PCwith intel Core i5 processor but my budget is low..it's only 25000 INR.
I wanna play all latest game & I can manage with lowest-moderate settings in them.
I'll be buying my new PC within a month or 2. Pls suggest me some build nice build.
SLI or Crossfire is using multiple graphics cards. Doesn't fit in your budget, anyway, and if you don't know what it is, don't do it.
Look man... Core i5-2400 is Rs. 9500 or so in India. That's a third of your budget. You also need RAM, graphics card and a motherboard; and a decent case to cool them. Oh yeah, an HDD and a DVD drive. Have a case, you say? Which model?
Oops... Rs. 31665 (if I remembered it precisely enough after closing the calculator, lol) and I didn't even include HDD, case, DVD drive and we're already out of budget. Maybe you'll drop to an i3 now? I don't think you need an i5 in your case - your GPU will bottleneck it.
And that's assuming the prices in your area are the same as on that website (and that's the lowest I've found in India so far). Still want an i5?
That website demands a lot more money than what the parts actually cost in local shops here in India.
I can suggest you a build :
Processor : Intel Core i3 2100 - Rs. 5100
Motherboard : ASRock H61M-GE - Rs. 3100
RAM : 2x4GB DDR3 1333 Gskill Ripjaws - Rs. 2300
Graphics : Asus Radeon HD6850 1GB DDR5 - Rs. 9500
Hard Disk : Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB - Rs. Rs. 2800
Optical Drive : LG SATA 24X DVD R/W - Rs. 900
Power Supply : Corsair CX500 V2 - Rs. 3100
Case : You already have
Total : Rs. 26,800 plus VAT at 4%. (Rs. 1072)
So, Rs. 27,872 after taxes.
Some suggestions I can give you :
1. Never listen to the Indian Shopkeepers. They know nothing and always misguide you. When I went to a shop to buy a PSU, they were trying hard to sell me a CoolerMaster GX Series PSU just because they'll get more commissions from CM than Corsair.
2. Never let those shop mechanics assemble the parts. They ruin them in most cases. They should handle nothing more than a pentium 4 machine. Get someone efficient in assembling PC parts.
3. Try to get the Corsair CX 500 V2. The shopkeepers will probably sell you a V1 with no 80+ certification and 1yr less warranty, just like they sold me mine.
This build will play new games pretty well. Atleast, better than a i5 + HD 5670 or 5770.
You can get the AMD Quad Core Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition within 6,000Rs. But actually the i3 2100 outperforms it in games because of its newer architecture. It also consumes lesser power and produces less heat.
"As our Who's Got Game? Twelve Sub-$200 CPUs Compared article proved, the budget Core i3-2100 is a surprisingly capable force in the gaming arena, able to beat the powerful quad-core CPUs that traditionally dominate this price segment. And with budget LGA 1155-based motherboards readily available below $70, this processor is a great starting point for folks who want to enjoy solid gaming performance now, with an option to upgrade to a Core i5 or i7 in the future."
