Note : I have heard many of my friends saying AMD is not good. But the truth is, AMD is superb. It may be slightly lower than Intel in High-end Products. But the price/performance ratio in AMD is awesome. You get more performance for your money.
Other PC Configurations:


  1. whats better intel config. or this one?

  2. Both are almost the same, But i will prefer Intel.

  3. U could get a better processor for just 150 bucks more i.e AMD Phenom 2 x6 1100T Black Edition 3.5ghz

  4. @Sonu,
    Price of AMD Phenom II SIX X6 - 1100T 3.3 GHz is Rs. 11,450

  5. In what manner AMD is not good..pls tell me

  6. @Vin Coster, AMD lacks only in high-end market, for Rs.50k budget AMD is superb.

    Note: Today I have made some changes to the post,please check.

  7. hey Karthik...i want to buy 27' monitor ...but in avg budget......i m lukin Benq M2700HD........

  8. @Vin Coster,
    It is a good monitor for the price around Rs.22k.
    Other monitors are costly.

    Pros :
    1) Built in speakers, remote
    2) Full HD
    3) HDMI and many input ports
    4) 5ms response time, good for gaming
    5) Aesthetic design

    1) Image quality good but not excellent (Reasonable for the price)

  9. I want to bye a new processor and Graphics card only.I have Biostar 760G Motherboard and 4 gb Zion DDR2 ram.My budget is Rs 20000.

    Hello Karthik,

    I liked this AMD configuration. But I don't use it for gaming at all. I use it mostly for audio & video encoding. Can you suggest a cheaper config with the same CPU, sound card & graphic card (average performers are ok for me) & suitable Mother board. Can you also suggest next best options for Chassis & powersupply (they are costly).

  11. Hai,
    wats ur opinion about the amd fx 8-core black edition along with hd 6970 nd plz suggest a good motherboard, power supply and 8gb (4x2) ram card for this config. (if d abov mentiond procesor is good for gaming). Also considering amd fx 4-core black edition.

    1. @Sharukh,

      I have not updated AMD config with AMD Bulldozer(FX) processors, because there are some performance problem with AMD FX and Win 7.
      It is said it will be fixed with Win 8.

      In many reviews AMD Phenom processors are beating FX processors.

      So better go for Phenom which are cheaper.
      But if u wish AMD FX are also equally good.

      HD6970 is an execelent GPU - Make sure u have a good PSU like Cooler Master GX 650

      Motherboard :
      For Phenom go for the board in this config
      For FX go for AM3+ boards based on AMD 970 or AMD 990

  12. Is the phenom betr than i7 2600k. Dat was my frst choice, bt the bulldozer's 8 core overclocking and cheap price made it a beter choice. Wil d fx hav d same performance prob in xp.

    1. Intel i7 2600 is faster than all AMD CPUs, it is even faster than Bulldozers 8 core.

      If budget is not an issue go for i7 2600.

      Yes, FX processors are facing problem in all OSes

  13. Hi,
    Cn u sugest a proper config for core i7 2600k and were i can buy them at the said price. I,ve got the monitor, keyboard, mouse, dvd writer and speakers. Rest should fit in 60- 70,000. Plz. Graphics is hd 6970, dats fixd. Monitor is a 42" bravia tv full hd (can it be used as a monitor?) . :) . Plz luk to it and reply.

    1. @Sharukh,

      Check the below link for i7 2600 config

      1) u can change the graphics card to AMD 6970 - Rs.20k
      2) U can connect ur GPU to ur TV using HDMi cable

  14. hey karthik,
    Need your help..
    I want a CPU config for Gaming at high graphics (It should run Modern Warfare 4 smoothly) around a budget of Rs. 35000( only for the CPU). Include only processor, motherboard, ram, hard disk, SMPS, and Graphic card.
    Thank you.
