1. Define your requirement (Budget, Use, etc.,)

If its for Gaming then you have to think for Slot in mother board for Graphics card, a good graphics card, Sound card, memory etc., based on your budget.

If its for simple surfing you dont have to could plan with a budget of 15 to 20k

2. Use sites where rates are frequently updated.

Two such sites i frequently use are
www.deltapage.com
https://www.perfectcomp.net/products.htm

Note down the price as you keep selecting
3. Start with what processor you need based on the power.

4. Choose the mother board supporting the processor and the features required by you.

5. Choose memory card

4. Hard disk

5. DVD

6. FLOPPY DRIVE

7. MONITOR

9. Mouse/keyboard

8. CABINET (Usually the price of cabinet is inclusive of SMPS)

9. Graphics card if you have a slot and want to have it for gaming.

iterate throught the steps 1-9 until you get required system which fixes into your budget.

Tips: To select product/manufacturer always go for the one with more years of warranty.

Once you are done with all spare parts. Use your motherboard book to assemble your pc.

Thanks & Regards
Sriram
