Hi there. Nice tutorial.
I would like to point out something in the medium budget build:
The Gtx 660 is a fairly older card. Go with the R9 270X from AMD.Same price,little better performance. Another advantage is since the motherboard supports Crossfire going with AMD is logical because you can add another GPU later on.
Good luck
 
Yes, you're right.
However, I wanted to be as tight as possible with the budget, and the 270x is around 2000-3000 more. But yes, the 270x is definitely better than the 660.
I didn't really consider crossfire/sli in this build, but funnily enough, both the PSU and GPU(if gotten AMD) support it.

You know what, the 270 fits the profile better.
It's around 15k too, and it can be crossfired.
Thanks. That was helpful.
 
There's no reason really, I have used Intel processors whenever I've used PC's so I can't really comment on an AMD processor, and I find that having an integrated graphics processor helps, especially when your graphics card has problems.

Not bad, but the intel core i5 4570 has better price to performance ratio then the intel core i5 4440 or even the 4430 while being more powerful and at the same price.

Some people may need peripherals like a Monitor, keyboard, mouse, headphones and ups.

Also you can get a GTX 760 for 17.5k inr. Try fitting it in :)
 
I'd have to label it as a 60k build in that case. The 4570 is 14204 and the 760 is 17.5, but the good ones are around 20, which are of the non-reference design.
I'd not compromise on quality, all the graphics cards I recommend to people are non reference. They run quieter and cooler, and are overclockable better too.

There's only 100 rupee difference between the 4440 and 4430, and Intel says 4440 has a "QPI" link, which is a high speed bus between the processor and chipset. Besides, it's 100MHz faster and a month newer.

Thanks for the tutorial, however i had a question. If i wanted to add a graphics card (Budget Rs. 8000-10000) for the budget PC build (Rs.28000) which one would be best?

Slightly over budget but the gtx 750 ti would be the best option especially since it is low power usage so you would nt need a power supply upgrade.

Really sad thing here about graphics cards here is that, compared to the US, prices are higher, and skewed(in the sense higher end graphics cards don't have the same % profit margin as lower end cards, but much higher).

The price of the card is too high for my budget. Thanks though.

Both cards are pricey.
However, i am considering Radeon HD 7770 or 7750 for my budget.

Thanks.

 
I've changed the card in the mid-end 55k build to a Geforce GTX 750Ti, for three reasons:
1. The 660 was SLI capable, and the SLI feature is of no use in the given motherboard. It is assumed that the user is not upgrading the motherboard soon, if at all, and certainly not before the graphics card.
2. The budget was exceeded by around Rs 300, and the 750Ti is cheaper, so now it's around 53000.
3. The 750 Ti is much newer than the 660. It has the Maxwell architecture, which is much more energy efficient than the Kepler of the 660.

I'm currently working on the high-end build, however there's a chance it'll be a INR 100,000 build instead of an 80,000 build, as the latter would just result in a beefed-up version of the 55k build with almost no new features.
 
Nice tutorial. Actually GTX 660 is better. The only advantage of GTX 750 Ti is the power efficiency. But the GTX 660 offers a lot more performance. Also the pcpartpicker list is pointing to the GTX 660. Antec X1 you suggested and Antec One on pcpartpicker are different cabinets. I didn't check every component in detail, so there might be other issues. Also i would try to fit an i7 in the high end build.

I was actually going to write such a tutorial myself. I was doubting whether Tomshardware.com was a right place to write such a tutorial for Indian users. Also will have to write such a tutorial every quarter just as TomsHardware does with their SBM articles. I was waiting for Watch Dogs to get benchmarked. I hope TomsHardware benches Watch Dogs. Watch Dogs got a recommended CPU requirement of an i7.
 
X1 is specially in the Indian market.(Also another cabinet is the V1). They're not, and won't be on PCPartPicker. The One is just a filler. You know a better one similar to the X1, let me know.
Thanks for pointing out the error. I'll fix it.
This tutorial is meant to be tight on budget. Mainly Indians consider this kind of budget for gaming, and i7 is not a requirement per se. Although processors' prices are not that inflated, it's still an additional 6000. Another thing I feel is I'd have to include a 780Ti to match the i7, which is twice(actually a little more) the price of the 770. The price of the PC will easily increase by another 30-35 grand.
Personally if you ask me, a watercooled CPU is a given in these kind of rigs, but I stuck with the 212 evo for this same reason.

That's natural, but there are a fair number of Indian users on the forums as well. The real sad thing is the people here don't usually build their own PC's, so vendors take advantage of this. So if there is a good PC for 28k, why not? I bought quite a outdated PC in that price. Too bad I couldn't fit a graphics card and a better PSU in there.

I know, the 660 is better, but did you read this post?

That's not fair.
That will limit the PC gaming market to the enthusiasts.
Earlier the GPU used to be the bottleneck. People could get away with a mid-range CPU. But this.. just isn't fair.

I'd also like to see what actual benchmarks say, and the game tested on multiple CPUs.
 
Even if it was just a filler the Antec One cabinet is far better than Antec X1.
The Antec One has front USB 3.0 ports and 2 exhaust fans included.
The Antec X1 is just a show-off(the front gaming look) to fool Indians.
Atleast for the mid-end budget gaming rig I would suggest Cooler Master K Series K281 cabinet for Rs. 3415

The GTX 660 has a better performance/price ratio compared to GTX 750 Ti. GTX 660 supports shadowplay and almost all other features that GTX 750 Ti supports. GTX 750 Ti only does a bit of power saving.
