As in every other field, you have millions of options available, so it’s up to you to choose the one that fits your needs and the one that you can afford. It is almost the same as buying a T-shirt from one brand or another. The main difference is the fact that building a PC is not a simple process as buying a piece of clothing. However, you might wonder why you should consider building your PC when you can simply buy an already existing one? There are several good reasons behind the decision of making your own. First of all, if it’s already built, it doesn’t mean it will necessarily meet your needs, nor does it mean that you can’t build a PC that will be more affordable but better when it comes to customization and upgrades, all while you have control of the cost. Makes sense?

When it comes to building your PC, how’s India different from the rest of the world? If you opt for building your own PC, you may expect to invest at least ₹90,000.

Depending on the prices on the market, and your total budget, there are a plethora of choices for every component.

However, if you go for an all-in-one – already set up PC, it may cost you ₹ 2 lakh. On the other hand, some of the available desktops that you can find may cost you something between ₹130,000 and ₹ 540,000, depending on the processor, the RAM size, and the hard drive. That’s why it’s a better option to choose each component by yourself, and invest as much money as you want.

When it comes to separate components, you may expect to pay somewhere around ₹30,000 for Intel’s i7 CPU, or you could go for a much cheaper option and choose one of the Nvidia CPUs, which can be bought for three times less money than Intel. Make sure to do your research and compare the prices before you make the final choice. Just keep in mind that not all is about the price, so read the user reviews and analyze the quality-price ratio. You also need to pay attention to the motherboard because it’s necessary to distinguish which CPU will work with which motherboard.
