Hello guys,

I need to build a PC which will handle a laser cutting machine.
Laser cutting machine uses lots of ram (16gb preferred) and vram.
Needs good computing power too.
Budget is around $1200-1300, and since I will be buying from India, most things will atleast $20-30 expensive.

Thanks guys.

I'm guessing since you are in India you would want amazon global shipping eligible right?

Unfortunately, amazon dont have 4770K global free shipping all I can best HT i7 is 3770K

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_p...&qid=1386163914&rnid=2528832011&tag=tec06d-20

They do have the i7-4771 ( same as 4770K but not overclockable...


I understand your feelings about "BIG" difference in prices globally compared to US...

But my advice, buy locally..... especially motherboards, GPU's.... and so on... from CPU's, yes i think its "OK" to buy outside your country cause the chance of DOA CPU's are almost 0%.


Imagine, cost of shipping, waiting time, and so on when you had to do RMA....

Buy if you buy locally, you can easily exchange to "new" one once you tested and recieved a faulty parts.....


Just my 2 cents.... :peace:
