    What about warranty and stuff? I guess overall it will cost me more than my budget

    That's one downside.


    I'd recommend if you want to stick with the indian resellers, look for something that has a GTX1060 6GB (not sure if the 3GB slower version is on laptops)

    I would also like to recommend Acer Nitro AN515-51. It seems to fit your budget and other major requirements: https://amzn.to/2mfuHmy. Most importantly, it's on a deal on Amazon Prime.

    Btw there's a Clevo reseller in India called Azom Systems: http://www.azom.systems/#about-us. They only seem to be offering two models however. You can get a quote from them on the specific models they offer.

    Rather than that model I can go for the refreshed version Acer Nitro AN515-52

    Problems

    Thermal Design (which is very important for a gaming laptop)

    If there's a newer model at a cheaper price then go for the newer one.

    Not sure why you think thermal design is a problem, as according to Notebookcheck the laptop "makes hardly any noise under low load and while idling, and it hardly heats up even when under load."

    Yep he can but import duty as you will be very high. The OP can come and go to US with that kind of money.

    3GB is slow and most of them will be crippled by design. So I think 1050ti 4GB will be more than enough. My cousin's 1050Ti mobile variant destroys my 980M.
    I'd not recommend that atleast in India since they often go/follow Click Bait and refuse SW/HW support on problematic lappies.


    @Saurav Karmakar Its MSI or Dell with GTX 1050 ti will do. Have you asked at local shops for exact price list for June/July?
    I recommend you choose 1050Ti which has more cores and higher clock speeds than 1050.

    I will be visiting official retailers as well as other shops in Nehru Place on Sunday for prices,discounts and what not. I was using Internet to gain as much expertise as I need before buying. As you know, the people in the shop (in India) doesn't have much expertise and if they find you're less aware they can make fool of you. So.

    People always take me for a fool when I visit any shops/malls looking for electronics. They say so much and I ask 2-3 little questions about the product(s) to which they don't answer and I answer them myself and then they don't say absurd things to me. Happened to me always!
