Here's my Specs
8700K
Gigabyte Z370 HD3P
16GB G-Skill 2666
1060 6GB
Samsung 970 Evo 250Gb(boot drive)
1TB HDD
Cooler master hyper 212 Turbo
Dell 1080p 24inch 60 hz
750W CM 80+ Bronze

I'm a freelancer, my work is collecting and auditing survey data.
The games I mostly play are COD Warzone and Apex Legends.

These are the parts I intented to buy
RTX 3070 FE 44.5K INR(600 USD)
2TB MX500 Crucial SSD SATA - 20.5k INR(276 USD)
Benq EX2780Q - 35K INR(471 USD)
2x16GB any 3000Mhz ram that supports the Board - 10-12K INR(161USD)



If I need to trim it down, then I need to choose 5700XT (32KINR/430USD).

Do give me an opinion, so i could come to a conclusion. 1440p Monitor and SSD is a must for me.

No I'd stick with the 3070 though they are a bit difficult to find. The AMD 6800 series should be out relatively soon so that should help level the availability of cards in the market.

As far as RAM goes - usually G. Skill or Corsair are the best, though look for any RAM that has the Samsung B-Die as opposed to the HK Hynix. In most cases that would be something like G Skill Trident Z.

I know 3070 has availability issues and its ok for me to wait 1 or 2 months. The reason I choose 3070 FE is if I intent to buy a RTX 3070 from an online retailer I need to pay around 76K INR (1022USD) and for RTX 2070S and RTX2080S costs around 50-75K INR. You could buy(when I becomes available again) RTX 3070 FE for 44.5K INR(600USD) from Nvidia website.

5700XT costs only 32K INR.

Buying 6800 or 3070 from Online retailer is not a good choice coz I'll be paying double. Is there any websites other than Newegg and amazon which will ship to India?
