    Default Help with upgrading computer

    Hey guys, I'm upgrading my computer and I need some suggestions on what to get as well as some other general advice. Basically what I need is

    1)CPU
    2)Motherboard
    3)RAM
    4)GPU
    5)Power Supply
    6)Casing

    I mostly intend to use the computer for gaming,internet browsing, media and all that.

    I do want a computer that most people would consider good and at the moment my budget is more or less limited so I'm thinking of buying everything in two parts. At the moment things I definitely want are the CPU, RAM and Motherboard. As GPU is going to cost the most I can save up till june/july and get it then.


    My budget at the moment is 45k and I thought around 30-32k is enough for the first 3 that I mentioned, so what should I get around that price range? Again, if you guys feel that I should spend more (or less) than 30k for these 3 , do advice me on what would be a more reasonable budget, but consider that whatever I save now goes to getting a better GPU later.

    Now my second question is, should I invest in the PSU and casing now or just wait up and get it with the GPU, what should I do and why. At the moment I have generic non brand Psu and a case.

    Also, with the whole warranty issue IDB is having right now, would it be ideal to buy from there? Where would you guys recommend I purchase everything from?

    My knowledge level reading computers is pretty entry level so details do help. Thanks in advance guys

    you dont need 32k for those 3.

    i5 mobo around 22k
    ram 4gb 3.5k
    your monitor res is 1080p? then you gonna need 8gb for 7k, i dont think you need 8gb for 720p (do NOT mention stupid cod ghosts ram lock.)

    now, about psu- maybe you should wait when you buy gpu, and get a cheap psu now, i really cant advise anything.


    if you want to buy gpu and psu now you have to buy 265 i think... i dont know if its better than 750ti. but 265 is a very good card for 768p

    I definitely don't intend to get a gpu now, I want something good and I'l do it around june when I can manage another extra 25k or so. If by a cheap psu you mean some generic non brand one, I have one like that now, so I suppose I should just stick with it for now?

    Thanks.

    Why bother? Neither of us know anything about computers. Stay out of trouble, let the experts handle the situation.

    Okay so I'm thinking

    i5 4590
    Gigabyte H81
    GSkill 1600Mhz (4GbX2)

    Would this be the best choice? I'm sort of confused abuot the mobo here. Also where should I get everything from? Any way to actually salvage the warranty without going anywhere really shady? If it's not possible, what's the best option I have? Preferably a place with good service and they could help put everything together.

    Again thanks for all the help guys

    Would this be the best choice? I'm sort of confused abuot the mobo here. Also where should I get everything from? Any way to actually salvage the warranty without going anywhere really shady? If it's not possible, what's the best option I have? Preferably a place with good service and they could help put everything together.

    Again thanks for all the help guys

    you're good to go. if u can try getting a mobo with 4 ram slots. makes future ram upgrades somewhat easier. can't help with the warranty issue though. :/

    What would you suggest?

    Also, I'm thinking of getting everything from ryans. Would that be a good choice?

    h81 is a good choice imo. i bought a few stuff from ryans and they seemed pretty nice. though i haven't had to claim warranty for anything so don't know how good their warranty services are. but as far as i've heard they're good.
