I have been an avid reader of Gadgets&Gizmos from the date it was launched. Please advise me on the configuration of a desktop PC that I intend to purchase with a budget of 80,000. I’ll need it for gaming and home use. The configuration should be Intel i7 Ivy Bridge Platform. Please suggest whether I should go in for a branded PC or an assembled PC.
Rajesh Ayade, on email Since you have a budget of 80,000 and gaming is one of your primary aims, we suggest you buy the Alienware X51 desktop PC. This unit costs 72,000 and you will need to spend about
10,000 more on a good monitor. But it will still be within your budget and you will have a top-notch machine for gaming and regular use. We think a branded unit is best if you are not sure of the configuration you need. The other option in the range is the Dell XPS 8500.
