          Yes there can be better choices, you can go with some superior RAM with more cloak speed ( do check the max speed that your CPU can handle) . The parts above are best when your budget is under 30,000 Rs or under USD $500

        Hi ,

        The config u provided excludes the HDD and PSU. Will I need some other things apart from these to start building. Like cables, fans, SATA cable etc or will it be provided with the products like HDD,Motherboard, processor. As I am a noob so can u please specify what all is needed apart from whats specified? Thanks in advance.

        • By HARPAL SINGH October 23, 2015

          Hard drive and Cabinet (fans included) is what you have to buy separately. You will find SATA cables in motherboard box.. Basically you don’t need any thing else apart from all above, even in case you don’t get Sata Cable you can easily get it for RS 20.
