I am confirmed for amd 5600xt for cpu. Graphic card 3060ti or 3070 one of them. What i am confused about is which manufaturer to buy from? Gigabyte asus evga? Which one has best quality? Is there a website where people compare motherboard and graphic card quality among different brands?
What about igame colorful? I saw a few of them in the store but dont know anything about this company.
Or should i go for amd 6700 6800 graphics card to pair with amd cpu for SAM advantages?

Budget is 1.5L for system. No monitor peripherals printer included.

For Graphics card MSI is best, 2nd is Asus. But 1st check service center in your area.

Aa i choose Asus because it’s have service center in my city.

3060ti is better than 3070.

// What i am confused about is which manufaturer to buy from //

1. ASUS
2. Gigabyte
3. Zotac
w/ Zotac u get 2+3/3+2 years warranty upon registration and for Rest of the brands, its either 2/3
Been using MSI 1060 6GB for over 3 years w/ Zero issues.. OC Software is Good enough (AfterBurner) but i’ve heard that their service isn’t good here in India (Thankfully zero issues till date)
I’ve had pretty good experience w/ Gigabyte and Zotac product service here in India // Drop the faulty product at OTC.. replacement within a week or two //

About EVGA, i think these are the only graphic cards with International Warranty but they aren’t available here in india AFAIK

Not exactly sure about advantages of AMD 6700/6800 over 3060ti/3070 coupled with AMD 5600xt but the thing w/ AMD processors is you will able to make use of the FreeSync feature that’s commonly available on majority of monitors (Nvidia G-Sync support for FreeSync monitors is a hit and miss unless someone tested online and confirmed the working status)

MSI has hands down the worst service centers in India. Never buy an MSI product. You will waste half a year for someone to solve your issue.

Gigabyte and Asus are good for graphic cards since money is not an issue.
Better to buy a 3070 or 3080 over 3060ti. But prices are insane all around the world. A 500$ 3080 is selling at 1000$ easily even in USA because of high demand and low supply.

I have a Gigabyte motherboard as well and there have been no issues. Motherboards rarely get any issues. Most are fine.

MSI providing best inclass hardware, but have limited service center.

Asus, gigabyte service center is also very bad like MSI. But I told about service availability.

Nope. Asus and gigabyte are way better and faster to solve your issues than MSI. You have to beg at the feet of MSI higher ups for every small issue. They think they are doing you a favour.

In 2018, my 2 months old Gigabyte motherboard was suddenly stopped working. And gigabyte takes around 4 months to solve, and within 2days again stopped working…. Then I again send to service center…. Take again 3 months…. joy

I brought new msi mobo that time.

Atleast you got a replacement. That’s what I’m saying. There’s no guarantee you will get a replacement even after years with MSI. You will have to beg and final power is in their hands only. They can ignore you if they want, and the employees are told to ignore you.

Maybe your experience is bad… But in my case its totally opposite.

Now I’m using MSI B450M PRO, got dead from local shop but got new replacement from MSI without any problem.

Basically to flex on poor people and calm my OCD if i am being honest. Might as well try some games. My requirements will be met with 50k system too but its not everyday you build a pc for yourself. jk

Never bought them
I remember seeing great deals on these GPUs on AliExpress year or two back
For what i know, its a chinese brand and RMA/Service is handles by RP (the one that does it for many other popular brands here in India)

igame colorful is 40k for 3060ti and available near me. Btw money IS an issue. I did some quick maf for allocating the budget. Let me know if i am wrong somewhere.
Cpu 30k
Gpu 42k
Motherboard 18k
Cabinet 5k
Psu 8k
Ram 20k
Nvme 5k
Ssd 10k
Hdd 6k
Ups 3-4k
No rgb or water cooling for me

What are the capacities and brands you’re looking at for the rest of the parts? I wouldn’t go for anything other than Asus, Gigabyte, Zotac, MSI and top brands for GPU. GPU is an integral part for gaming and work. Do not go to unknown brands for that.

RAM cost is high. Even 32GB RAM should be around 15-16k even with RGB.

And why do you need NVME, SSD and HDD? Isn’t that overkill?

Only Asus for motherboard. Graphics Card AMD or Nvidia according to your need and price difference, for brand prefer asus. Ask me if any confusion.

With limited availability and inflated prices for Nvidia 3000 series GPUs in India I doubt you have much of a choice in which one to get if you plan to build PC in next 2-3 months. Check review of the specific GPU in youtube to make sure it doesnt have some inherent problems and buy whichever you can find.

Prefer asus & zotac for nvidia cards, if going for msi then go to /r/IndianGaming & in the sidebar check the wiki link for info about official reps there of various brands( https://www.reddit.com/r/IndianGaming/wiki/Ve...ps ). MSI & gigabyte official reps are also there who will be able to help in a much better way compared to your usual dealers/online complaints/social media etc. EVGA does not have an official presence in India last time I checked. Avoid brands like colorful/inno etc, they are good only if you are located in China.

Asus seems to be the winner…although the igame 3060ti vulcan has a screen too ahhhh
Well in case of RAM, ever heard of the name gskill trident royal 3600 cl16, you peasant? Jk
Nvme for superfast stuff, ssd for games and stuff, hdd for all the media crap.

Can someone suggest a nice cabinet? Cabinet is one thing i want to have extra pretty.
