Aren't there any Indian PC forums where you can ask around? Or those dreaded facebook groups?

And all those people wondering CPU in this case means the whole PC. It's a weird naming in the whole sub-continent. And case is called casing. GPU is called AGP card (though it's becoming less and less common actually).

Check out these websites:

This site will help you set up a build with prices. I will get onto making a selection that I think may be good for you.
Thanks for replying. I will chek those sites sure. Thanks

Here is something I came up with. But you will have to save up about additional 4100 rupees for it:

https://in.pcpartpicker.com/list/6wnfWD

Now mind you, it doesnt guarantee that those are final prices. Always keep an eye out on the sites mentioned as well as amazon India and compare prices. What I listed is a system I would have purchased on an extreme budget and with that GPU you will be playing games at relatively high settings for quite some time. After a bit of overclocking it gets close to 1660ti performance and that GPU is as good as my GTX 1070 which is a solid GPU for high end gaming at 1080p. CPU I think is a good buy as it turbos to ~4ghz and it is 6core while being extremely cheap. Only issue with this setup is that motherboard will have to be on latest bios in order to work with the CPU which you may have to ask the seller if it is possible they can update the bios for you.

Well you said CPU, which you're mistaking for cabinet (or case) & you need lots of other things to get a system up & running. 60k is a good margin but you shouldn't set your expectations too high.

Yes & this is why I said he'll need more parts & possibly higher budget.

Good airflow matters most IMO, next to internal design that allows placement of a long enough GPU and the lot of other components. Build quality matters too if you dont want an eye soar and dont want to slice your hand up from the sharp edges within the case.

hmmmmmm the place where im living right now is quiet hot too. all im thinking is that if i can save some money on the cabinet and put it towards other parts .....coz of a tight budget i can compromise on the looks no probs :))).. thank you very much for the list

As long as you got good airflow, your temps shouldn't be too much of a bother. You want positive airflow.

That said, its very humid where you are too unless you are in Jaipur desert like area. In that case, constantly keeping your PC insides clean is important too. Don't want unwanted visitors (Bugs) and or mold to make home inside your PC.

then just make sure to blow out the inside of the PC of dust every now and then. Never been to Ahmedabad but if it is like Jaipur in terms of weather, then yeah, that is what I would do. Maybe spend a bit extra later down in the line for a AIO watercooler for the CPU.

Well, Amazon India will have plenty of them at different price points. Just look up AIO CPU watercoolers in the search bar. But it may be more maintenance involved.

As for cleaning out the inside of the PC, get compressed air in a can. If that isn't as available, save up for an electric blower. Don't use vacuum, and try not to use your mouth by blowing on it lol.
