Guys, this is just to help yourselves. I have some serious works in Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premier Pro and FL Studio/Logic Pro audio digital workstations. So, I am going for a desktop computer instead of laptops. I am aiming for at least 8GB NVIDIA GTX 1080 graphic card.

So, I have checked all the available options in a ready-to-use PCs available online. There are very less HP and Dell gaming desktops. There are many gaming laptops from Dell, Asus and Alienware kind of. But, Somewhere I have read that the desktops will perform better and cost effective. Hence, I began my search and ended up looking at some good pre-assembled desktop computers for gaming.

Now, as I have a previous PC assembling and servicing experience, I have found the best way is to buy each and every item such as motherboard, RAM, Processor, Graphics card, PC cabinet, powerful SMPS, Monitor, Keyboards, etc., and assemble it myself. When I calculated the cost, it would save me around $450 (Rs. 30,000 INR) in a $2400 (Rs. 1,60,000 INR) pre-assembled PC.

As I have checked ANT PC brand, they have some good PC configurations with quite good peripherals inside. However, I have a PC items dealer in my city, who would give me nice support for a long time. I have decided to visit that place and check the price and go for it. I will do the assembling part and I will setup my PC soon and I will update. This will save me huge money. What's your experience?
