  1. 1. What is the purpose of the computer? What all applications and games are you going to run? (Be exact. Which games? Which applications? Avoid the word 'et cetera.' Vague answers like 'gaming' or 'office work' will not work.) Ans: Bluestacks, PIO Solver, poker apps. All these but like multiple instances 7-8 bluestacks at same time. 5 different poker apps all at same time. 2. What is your overall budget? If you can extend a bit for a more balanced configuration, then please mention. Ans: 2 Lac can go over also 3. Planning to overclock? Ans: No 4. Which Operating System are you planning to use? Ans: Win 10/11 5. How much hard drive / solid-state drive space is needed? Ans: 2TB SSD (No HHD) 6. Do you want to buy a monitor? If yes, please mention the screen size and resolution you prefer. If you already have a monitor and want to reuse it, then do mention the screen size and resolution of the monitor you have. Ans: No 7. Which components you DON'T want to buy? i.e. which components you already have and plan on reusing? Ans: Peripherals like mouse, keyboard, headphones. Cabinet and everything inside will be brand new like PSU, CPU, GPU, Cooler, RAM, SSD. 8. When are you planning to buy the system? Ans: This week 9. Have you ever built a desktop before? Or, will this be done by an assembler? Ans: Done by assembler 10. Where do you live? Are you buying locally? Are you open to buying stuff from online shops if you don't get locally? Ans: Jaipur prefer to buy prebuilt as the person who will be using it is tech noob. So want to buy everything from 1 shop and ask them to assemble & ship it to us... ready for use. But if there is huge loss in buying all from 1 shop/website then can buy from different websites and ask someone to come to my home and assemble it. 11. Anything else which you would like to say? Ans: I want CPU to have iGPU. It will hardly be used for video games. I think 64GB RAM should be good but might be little overkill also DDR5 can be considered only if it is not super expensive compared to DDR4 & offers some noticeable performance gain. SSD should not be low tier one. Anything which has lot of cache and can do read/write speed above 2500 mbps at all times even when it is filled. I don't think gen4 is needed unless price difference is not much from gen3. I don't notice any difference if 2500mbps or 4500mbps SSD speed much unless transferring files. But a cheap QLC SSD once it gets filled speed drops to 600mbps which is bad.
  2. I need to make a desktop for my brother, as he mainly wants to run 8 Bluestacks at same time & some CPU intensive simulation tasks like Poker PIO Solvers. So I think we will need a top end CPU & 32GB RAM at least. GPU can be mid tier, as he won't be doing any video gaming. He doesn't want to upgrade it for next 5 years. Also don't need HDD, I think 2 TB SSD should be enough with R/W speed around 3Gbps or higher which pcie gen 3 SSD can do. Don't need monitor or any peripherals only RAM, GPU, Mobo, CPU, Cooler, PSU, Cabinet and for cooling I think air cooler is better coz this PC will be used by a Big tech noob so he can't figure out if liquid cooler starts leaking nor he will be able to fix it on his own. Please suggest me some specs.
  3. Tried it but no help. I tested on different HDD also. No ============================================================= Yesterday I replaced my motherboard. So here is the summary : 1) When I changed GPU 1.5 months ago, problem was still same. 2) After that when I changed PSU 1 month ago the BSOD problem went away but freezing/stutters was still there 3) Then I changed CPU 3 weeks ago and after that freezing was gone but there was stutters still the same. 4) Then I changed Motherboard this week, now stutters are the only issue but they are reduced by 80%. So what should I change next ? RAM, GPU or SSD ? And is it possible that every component in my PC was fried all at same time because of old PSU or bad mobo ? Because every time I change one component the issue gets fixed by a small percentage.
  4. Whenever I play Apex Legends (it's the only game I play) it makes the whole PC stutter every 3-4 mins (for 2-3 secs everything freezes). Although stuttering also happens when I am not gaming and just browsing but it's 2-3 times per day. This issue only started last month. Also I got my GPU replaced last month, so it can't be GPU. I checked temperatures during gaming and it's all under 70 Celsius on GPU, CPU & Mobo. PC is little less then 2 years old but PSU is 12 years old. CPU : AMD Ryzen 5 3600x Motherboard : Asus TUF Gaming X570 Plus RAM : 2 X 8GB A-Data XPG 3200Mhz CL16 SSD : Silicon Power 1TB NVMe M.2 Gen 3 GPU : Zotac GTX 1660 Twin Fan PSU : Corsair 550W (Bought in 2009) Where should I start ? Coz it could be motherboard or CPU or PSU or RAM or GPU, it's hard to figure out as I don't have 2nd desktop to switch parts & find the faulty hardware. I think it's most likely PSU but I just don't want to buy new PSU for $100 then later realize it was something else which was faulty.
  5. I am looking for new PSU as my current Corsair VX550 PSU lasted 12 years. I need semi modular or fully modular. I think I should get wattage between 500W to 700W. I am using : CPU : AMD Ryzen 5 3600x (95W) Motherboard : Asus TUF Gaming X570 Plus RAM : 2 X 8GB A-Data XPG 3200Mhz CL16 SSD : Silicon Power 1TB NVMe M.2 Gen 3 GPU : Zotac GTX 1660 Twin Fan (125W) Cabinet Fans : 3 (120mm) * No LED strips or RGB. I might buy a new GPU like RTX 3060 or 3070 in future once price gets back to normal. So even my next GPU won't suck more then 220W. Also my current PSU didn't had 4pin EATX12V for extra power to CPU. I looked some models today but they also don't have that connector. Does it come only with high end PSU?
  6. I need all-in-one printer for home use preferably ink tank & with duplex printing if possible. Laser is out of my budget. I can't find any printer which can print on blank Discs (they have white Inkjet printable surface). Can someone please suggest what all options I can find in India !
  7. I am getting ASUS TUF Gaming K7 for 6.5K, is it better model then all the ones we discussed here? If yes then I will buy it ASAP before it runs out of stock
  8. Whenever I launch any game and play for 2-3 minutes it crashes the whole PC. This issue only started last month. Also I got my GPU replaced last week, so it can't be GPU. I checked thermals during gaming and it's normal on GPU, CPU & Mobo. PC is little less then 2 years old. CPU : AMD Ryzen 5 3600x Mobo : Asus TUF Gaming X570 Plus RAM : 8GB X 2 A-Data XPG 3200Mhz CL16 SSD : Silicon Power 1TB NVMe M.2 Gen 3 GPU : Zotac GTX 1660 Twin Fan PSU : Corsair 550W Where should I start ? Coz it might be motherboard or CPU or PSU, it's hard to figure out as I don't have 2nd desktop to switch parts & find the faulty hardware.
  9. I need numpad as I play Poker and I enter lot of numbers every second. Corsair K68 costs Rs.8000 (forgot to add shipping) and Asus K3 costs Rs.5345 (including shipping). You think its worth paying Rs.2600 for multimedia keys, water/dust resistant & cherry MX red switch (Asus has Kailh Red) I saw some people saying on reddit that Kailh switch are as good as Cherry MX.
  10. I looked only and found only 3 options in my budget : 1) Corsair K68 2) Corsair K60 Pro 3) Asus TUF Gaming K3 All of them have red switches both corsair model cost same at around Rs.7650 and Asus K3 cost only Rs.5300. Which one would you recommend? I don't mind paying Rs.2400 for corsair if they're providing more features or better quality then Asus." * K60 Pro have hot swappable switches but you can't find Cherry Voila switches anywhere.
  11. I mainly play FPS games like Apex Legends & Hyperscape. I need gaming keyboard with following requirements : 1) Palm rest 2) Should be full size keyboard 3) Actuation Force should be as low as possible as I got small hands under 50cN 4) Linear switches 5) Multimedia hot-keys Optional features : 1) Wireless would be better, even though I am fine with wired also 2) Backlit 3) Dust proof keys 4) Hot-swappable switches as I don't want to spends hours replacing switch/solder when it fails.
  12. I am looking for gaming mouse wireless under 7K. I mostly play FPS games like Apex Legends, Hyperscape. These are my must have requirements : 1) I am Right handed user with Finger Tip Grip & small-medium sized hands 2) Mouse should be under 100 grams with batteries 3) Same latency as wired mouse These are optional requirements : 1) More buttons the better (preferably more then 6-7 programmable buttons) 2) Battery life should be more then 50 hours if it's built-in rechargeable and if AA/AAA cell then it should be more then 150 hours. Also every mouse I ever bought (HP, Logitech, Asus, Microsoft, Dell) in my life had double click issues after a while I don't think there is even a single mouse in the world which won't have this issue.
  13. I was looking to buy external blu-ray writer but I can't find any in Indian Market that supports all regular blu-ray formats along with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc & 3D Blu-ray movies. However I found 2 internal blu-ray writer which supports everything I need. But I am not sure if internal writer will work with any random enclosure or Sata to USB converter cable that we find on amazon. I know that Sata internal hard-drives work easily using even the cheapest enclosures but I have no idea what type of enclosure works perfectly for full size 41mm height Blu-ray drives. I also don't know if those enclosures/case or sata to usb cables will work in Plug & Play USB mode with optical drives. Please help if anyone knows, how I can get it to work without any problems.
  14. For 13 years I have used Creative EP-630, someone at a forum suggested me those back in 2007 because I wanted extra bass, since then I am buying those every time they stop working. They usually last 6 months to 3 years at most, it's random and cost around Rs.700. If I listen to them on very high volume they used to break down in under an year. I got like 9-10 of them in my lifetime as they usually breakdown or I lose them. But I was satisfied by the sound and extra bass boost. Last pair lasted me most, around 4 years but it broke down yesterday. So this time I am looking for some other better option. Please suggest something better which has extra bass but without compromising on sound quality for around Rs.2000. I am fine with both wired or wireless. I think in-ear canal earphones will be better as external sound can't get in, just like the one I had. I usually listen to Trap & Bass, Dubstep, Moombahton, Hip-Hop/Rap (Mostly heavy bass songs).
