From the research I have been doing myself regarding a cpu upgrade going for a 7th generation cpu right now is just utter waste of money especially if it's not a 7700k. The 8th generation beat it and how. I would say definitely wait if you can or at least get a Gen 1 ryzen

 

I have been out of the upgrade loop for far too long. So I've honestly not even looked at the current trend. His current GPU is GTX750Ti and the gaming needs are kind of basic, so even recommending him a 7th Gen i5 seems like an overkill, truth be told. I mean, even my age old 3rd Gen i5 paired with a GTX970 holds up to this day. So he should have no problem to breeze through it.

 

I suggested AMD, but he has had a bad history with AMD combo before this, so is hesitant with the brand. So Intel it is.

Does anyone here use a 3GB graphics card like the older AMD R9 2XX/3XX or the GTX 1060 3GB? How's your experience on 1080p on a multitude of titles? 
If you are buying a card now I would suggest not going for the 3gb ones, paying a little more would get you a 6gb gtx 1060 and that is honestly the one you should get.

Hey I am looking to upgrade my monitor. Budget is 20k tops. 

 

Freesync and 75 HZ is required. Dont need 144hz cause GPU probably couldnt crank that anyway. Aside from that larger screen would be preferable (27 would be great, willing to settle for 24 if the other features make up for it). 1080p is fine, no need for QHD or 4K.

Need a casual gaming system for 50K. Building from scratch. 1440p gaming at high settings ( No ultra with bells and whistles on )

Not looking to upgrade for 2 years. If SSD + HDD possible then great or else just HDD is fine. Can a UPS fit in the budget just enough to shut down the system? If not, I will purchase UPS outside the budget.

Looking for older steam and retail pc games over last 5 years and new games that come out like shooter and casual games ( KB + Mouse type games ). I have a PS4 so games release on console will be played on PS4. Like if I had the PC, i would have preferred Division 2 for PC than PS4.

Want to build a good 1440p gaming rig now that Ryzen 3000 is out. Any comments on the following?

 

 

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor  (₹31599.00 @ Amazon India) 
Motherboard: Gigabyte - X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard 
Memory: G.Skill - Trident Z RGB 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory  (₹11699.00 @ Amazon India) 
Storage: Samsung - 970 Evo 500 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive 
Storage: Western Digital - Blue 2 TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive 
Video Card: MSI - GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB GAMING X TRIO Video Card 
Case: Cooler Master - MasterBox NR600 (w/o ODD) ATX Mid Tower Case 
Power Supply: Corsair - RM 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply 
 

A few suggestions/questions:

1. What would be a g ood1440p freesync monitor? 

2. Should I go with the 3700x or the 3600x? I am primarily looking at gaming with some programming thrown it. Want to know if the extra money will be worth it in the long run. 

3. 2070 Super vs 2060 Super.

I'm not an expert but sounds good. Also, Ive seen the RAM sticks go for lower on Amazon itself....

Either go with the 3700x or the 3600.. The 3600x does not have any significant benefit over the 3600..

Anyone knows some good gaming chair ? 

 

I'm looking to buy one from a long time.. I get excited whenever there is a sale on amazon/flipkart then browse through the options, get confused and finally end up getting nothing..
I found that the brand "green soul" has the best reviews but people suggest to get a office chair instead of a gaming chair.. So I'm planning to check out featherlite chairs in the showroom once

I have a 500Gigs Samsung EVO 860 SATA for my Win10 installation and games + 2TB HDD for media.

 

I want to dual-boot Linux on my machine. May pick up another SSD a few months down the line. What's an ideal configuration for this? 

 

1. Windows on 1st SSD. 2nd SSD for Games + Linux

2. Windows + games on 1st SSD. 2nd SSD for Linux.

3. Windows + Linux on 1st SSD. 2nd SSD for games.

Its leather material.. will get hot during longer gaming sessions and tends to wear out faster..
check this one - https://www.amazon.in/Green-Soul-Monster-Gaming-Ergonomic/dp/B0795WVT1B/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=green%2Bsoul&qid=1565966560&s=gateway&sr=8-3&th=1

Gaming chairs are scam. Don't fall for it. Just buy a good office chair instead.

 

My friend spent $400 on SecretLab Gaming Chair which is considered as one of the best but the user experiences are awful. These chairs lack lower back support and you start to feel uncomfortable after a while. They aren't ergonomics focused. 

 

Herman Miller and Haworth are gold standard for office but very expensive. Get 2nd hand if you can find. 

IKEA Markus / Alera / WorkPro are otherwise very solid and fit within gaming chair budget.
