How to: Build a budget Ivy Bridge PC

Build a budget PC based on the latest components under Rs.40,000.

Media playback, social networking, office suites, image viewing – an entry-level PC is ideal for such tasks. Building such a PC with the latest-generation components isn’t possible when a new platform has just launched. However, you have multiple options when entry-level and mid-range processors and chipsets are available in the market. The top-end Intel Core i7-3770K was the first to appear on shelves, followed by the Intel Core i5-3570K. A few more Ivy Bridge processors are yet to arrive, but the most affordable model at present is the Core i5-3450. Priced at around Rs.12,000, this dual-core processor has the muscle to drive entry-level and mid-range PCs. We used it along with a low-cost Intel 7-series chipset motherboard to build a fairly powerful PC for under Rs.40,000.
