    Budget 0-20k 5600 vs 5600x

    Budget 0-20k Need help to build a home server

    If you are from Bengaluru, there is store called BSK computers. They sell refurbished Dell/HP/Lenovo desktops. They are quite professional. My friend has bought a PC from them couple of years back and it was good. I think he also lists his inventory in OLX.
