Need help in choosing a budget processor & graphics Tags: CPUs Processors Graphics Last response: June 27, 2012 3:18 PM in CPUs Share sandeep_aich June 27, 2012 1:01:21 PM I am planning to assemble a gaming desktop. Initially i thought to get the i7-3770k (INR Price 17700 RS/-) processor but the cost is too high it seems. How good is 3rd Gen. i5 processors which will be compatible with the new games (FPS games) making it future proof for atleast 5-6 years & also would be directx 11.0 compatible Please suggest some intel processors within INR 12000 Rs/- If so, then which processor is good enough to use along with a GTX 560 TI or HD 7850 2GB Graphics budget: (Within INR 15000 Rs/-) other specs: Ram: 4GB *2 motherboard: Intel DH77KC Hard Disk : 2TB Also i will be planning to purchase this setup by the end of July or first week of August. Thanks for your help in advance.
