Windows 7: Help required - Building a new PC

Help required - Building a new PC

Hello guys,

I want to build a new desktop.
First things first. I live in India and so Rupees is a much more familiar currency for me than USD.
My budget would be around 50,000 Rs.

My requirements:

- I don't want a gaming PC So a GPU is not a place to shell in cash. But it should be a decent one.
- I frequently watch movies and edit them so maybe RAM should be sufficient.
- I think Processor should be good for overall performance.
- 2 TB is my minimum requirement for storage.

Can you all please suggest components for my new desktop which are overall in my budget.
And please don't bother for Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers, etc.
I would prefer to use the old ones to save some money and use it in more powerful CPU components.

You can take a look here at the many PC bundles provided. Of course, you'll need to find a local retailer.

Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more! - Newegg.com

About $800 US, should be adequate for your needs. Don't know how many Rupees that is without looking it up.

Mini tower case, Motherboard with integrated sound and graphics. Intel i3 or i5 processor, AMD processors cost less. 400 watt power supply. 250GB to 500GB SATA HDD. 12MB Ram. CD/DVD Optical Drive. Windows Ultimate Version, for multiple language support.

I didn't understand this part. Are you kidding with 12 MB of RAM.
What is SATA HDD

And also can you say me the difference between SSD and HDD

Well if you`re a beginner, do you have the knowledge to build a pc, maybe it would be better for you if you just bought a pc from a local retailer.

Contact a local PC-Store in your neighbourhood. They will probably have both the components and the help you need.
It makes no sense ordering or suggesting part from US Internet Stores, the Freight cost will be prohibitive.

There are MANY PC-Building manuals online.

Thanks for all the help provided.
But I think Coram Daes gave me the most appropriate option and I appreciate that.
Thanks

Funny, the big majority here does order parts from online vendors mate. Most of the stuff has FREE shipping and prices are much lower than going to a local brick and mortar store. I'd never go to, say Best Buy for a piece unless I need it now.

there are many people in India on this forum, you can ask them.

@Abhishek1108,

There are many How to build a PC video's on YouTube if you what to learn how.

Viewing the PC bundles at Newegg.com, will teach you the different configurations.
