* GPU - undecided within 15-16k
* Case - Compact micro atx case

* Input Devices - Wireless keyboard and mouse

* Is this going to be your final configuration or you would be adding/upgrading a component in near future. If yes then please mention when and which component

Final

* Yes

* General purpose HTPC

No

3. Gaming - 1920x1080
4. Desktop - 1920x1080

* Are you looking to overclock?

* No

* Which operating system do you intend to use with this configuration?

* Windows 7/10 64 bit


Additional Notes:

I need the following:

* Very compact case with small footprint which can house a ATi 570/Nvidia 1660 + a micro atx motherboard
* No fancy lights
* I intend to connect it to my 40 inch LED tv in the living room and has to be small enough to fit some where and be unobtrusive

Purpose:

* Basic FPS gaming + HTPC
* I have the option of selling the entire desktop and getting a gaming laptop but then nothing really is good in 50k-55k for what I have in mind
* I am assuming my current i5 3300 + Gigabyte B75 + 16gb GSKILL Ram is good enough for 1080p gaming now

Asus TUF goes for 55K in sales. AFAIK, it goes with Ryzen proccy, GTX 1650 and 120Hz screen.

Have you taken a look at the FireCuda or even or NVE and SSD drives for your build?

sold off the monitor and other stuff along with the GPU - kept the core system as it is and got a Gefore 1660 GTX 6GB. Connected it to the 42 inch LED in the living room. I also bought a Logitech MK345 wireless keyboard along with a Logitech G304 wireless gaming mouse.
