I am thinking about upgrading my existing PC. I want to buy a processor, motherboard, ram and graphics card. I am thinking about investing 20-25k at max.

I am not a gamer so it doesn’t has to be cutting edge stuff but looking for best performance under the price. A balanced build for performance and price.

Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the suggestion… Also, it’s pretty close to what I was thinking.

I am thinking about going with Ryzen this time. I have a few questions though.

1. You did not suggest any graphic card with Ryzen. Any particular reason or is it better without a gc.

2. Is it wise to go with AMD Ryzen 5 2400G instead of Ryzen 5 3400G? Is the price difference of 4k (comparing for Amazon fulfilled sellers) justified going with Ryzen 5 3400G in terms of performance?
https://www.amazon.in/AMD-Ryzen-Processor-Radeo...

3. Do you think the product prices are low right now or should I wait? The thing is, there is no much cb offers on pc components, only 10% bank offers which I can get from discounted gift cards anytime.

Thanks again for your input. Really appreciate it.

Ryzen beats I series any day, however dont have resale value
Between 2400 and 3400 you wont find noticeable difference for normal task, unless you plan to render animations and movies on your pc
Prices of pc components remain in the same range, as mostly are 3rd party sourced, use bank offers buy now

i don’t think you ’ll need a sperate GPU with ryzen. it is enough for most of the task.
2. yes. 2400g is fine. Not much difference and not worth 4k more.
3. Low enough now. Check local prices it ’ll be cheaper. But if you add bank discounts its almost same price on Amazon.

R3 2200G is fine. Little lower clocks than R5 2400G. Both quad cores but the latter can execute 1 extra thread per core.
The latter’s GPU perf. nearly matches that of the GT 1030(when paired with fast, expensive dual channel RAM). The former is a bit slower. You are getting i3 8100+GT 1030 class perf.
Down the road if feel the need to upgrade to a faster CPU you can pick up a hexa or even octa core for really cheap. Makes sense to spend a little extra on a mobo.

Bhai you need to move on from Windows XP too. 🙂 Bhai if you want to wait and can afford to do so, then please wait. Intel Ryzen rivalry will reward new buyers immensely.

Wait for how long? Any indicative timeline? New chips coming? Price cuts foreseen?

It is worth to buy marq pc
MarQ by Flipkart Panther T580 Full Tower with Core i5 (8400) 8 GB RAM 1 TB Hard Disk

Don’t buy MarQ products. Support is the worst and you will be lucky to get it repaired under warranty in case you need to avail it.

Also, this is CPU only. You can get it assembled with better quality components for better price unless of course if MarQ CPU is on super deal.

If you are looking to build a PC then buy the following components and assemble it. These are quality components and it will only cost you 28,900 rs. To save more money buy it with bank or cashback offer. (I have the same configuration)

AMD Ryzen 5 2400G Processor – 10,000 rs
ASRock A320M-HDV R4.0 Motherboard – 3,800 rs
Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 3000 RAM – 2,850 rs
Corsair CX450 450W 80 Plus Bronze PSU – 4,100 rs
Western Digital WD Green 240GB SSD – 2,250 rs.
WD 1TB HDD – 2,800 rs.
Corsair CC-9011050-WW Cabinet – 3,100 rs.

For better performance, buy 2 × 8 GB RAM sticks. This build does not require a graphics card.

Why is it better than buying a pre built CPU? Companies use cheaper components in readymade CPU to increase their profit margin. But we have used the best components for our budget and it’s still cheaper than buying a pre built CPU.

smile Happy to help.

I did some research during Diwali sale and bought these components for my PC. This is in fact a low budget gaming build. It is very powerful PC for regular tasks so you will not face any issue or lag.

Also, if you do not know how to assemble a PC then you can watch some Youtube videos. It’s fairly very easy. You can also ask for help from one of your friends who knows how to assemble or you can also take these components to any PC repair shop and they will do it for 200-300 bucks.

Let me know if you need any other information or help with something.

Go for a pwm free monitor. And curved monitors are better to use. Try to buy an NVMe SSD instead of SATA one. And remember MLC one’s last longer than TLC ones

I don’t have any good idea about monitors. I am still using 2 × 21″ flat screen LG Flatron monitors on my upgraded PC. I didn’t feel the need to upgrade my monitors.

It’s really based on personal preference. People recommend curved monitors so they must be good. LG, Samsung, Acer etc are good bands for monitors. Pick a size and quality based on your requirements and budget.

Here. https://www.mydigitaldiscount.com/everything-yo...

But unless you are into gaming, you don’t need to worry about it too much. You can start with SATA SSD and then move on to better and faster options if you require.

Don’t get stuck into technical stuff and improvements. Remember faster components are more expensive and then they also require other faster/higher rated counterparts to go with them. This is a cat and mouse race which never ends.

The motherboard you bought supports m.2 NVMe drives. I admit things depend upon personal usage n budget. But if the motherboard has already a faster component support then why should not we go for the faster component, which comes at a premium. People should give attention to these lil technical jargons. Some people complain why Samsung Evo drives cost that high. The answer is they use MLC. SSDs using MLC have twice the lifetime of SSDs using SLC. 🙂 I have TLC. I know it’s the cheapest one. But at least I won’t complain in the future that my SSD didn’t last long. 🙂
Edit: not all Evo drives use MLC. I apologise for the mistake

With 3D TLC endurance concerns are pretty much a non-issue. MLC has been restricted to enterprise-grade offerings for a while now. Other than Samsung’s Pro series which is prohibitively expensive. In fact planar MLC on 15nm has worse endurance than 3D TLC of today.

But one has to know these differences, right?
And Samsung markets its 3D NAND devices as V NAND. I missed this thing to write

Thanks for the info. Now I know my Intel 760p has 3D TLC. 🙂😍
Edit: 3D NAND MLCs are more durable n expensive than 3D NAND TLC. 🙂 If you hadn’t opened my eyes, my knowledge would be still in that mlc vs tlc level. Thank you @LIMBO

It would have been easy if you had provided amazon product links, that would help in deciding within multiple listings.

Actually Bulbull ravaged parts of India. People are staying there without any electricity. Naturally I became concerned, when I heard you have no power in your region, though I could do very little about it. 🙂
