Building Gaming PC under Rs. 45,000 in India

True gamers know the importance of a sound gaming rig.

Contrary to popular belief, Gaming PCs aren't necessarily super-expensive to build.

If you have the right combination of processor, GPU, RAM, Motherboard, and peripherals, even a budget rig can handle the heaviest of games with ease.

Read on to know how you can build a decent budget gaming machine under Rs. 45,000 in India.

In context

Building Gaming PC under Rs. 45,000 in India
8th Gen Intel i3 processor (Coffee Lake)

Processor

8th Gen Intel i3 processor (Coffee Lake)

Intel's latest 8th Gen i3 come with four cores, four threads and are more than capable of handling heavy games at decent frame rates (provided you use an external graphics card).

The stock-fan is quite robust, so you don't need an external cooler.

This is still an entry-level processor so don't expect to edit 4K videos.

Cost: ~Rs. 11,000

Alternative choice: AMD Ryzen 1300X.

Graphics Card

The best entry-level GPU: NVIDIA 1050Ti

The NVIDIA 1050Ti can effortlessly handle even the most graphic-intensive games.

For this PC, you could use a Zotac NVIDIA GeForce GTX (4GB) card.

Cost: ~ Rs. 13,000.

Alternative choice: None.

For the motherboard, you should choose the ASUS Prime B360M-D. It comes with a 3-year warranty and can support Intel i5 and i7 processors as well.

Cost: ~Rs. 6,500

Alternative choice: Gigabyte H310M-H.

RAM and Storage

8 gigs of Corsair RAM and a Seagate Barracuda HDD

You need a minimum of 8GB RAM to handle intensive games. A Corsair Vengeance DDR4 8 GB RAM will suffice for this PC. It comes with a 10-year manufacturing warranty.

Cost: ~Rs. 5,000.

Alternative choice: None.

Opting for an SSD will take you way over budget. So, opt for a fast HDD instead, like the Seagate Barracuda (1TB).

Cost: ~Rs. 3,500.

Alternative choice: None.

Cabinet and PSU

The power supply is integral for a PC. You choose a trusted PSU to handle such duties.

My recommendation will be the Corsair VS450 450-Watt Power Supply, which is an Amazon bestseller and is recommended by experts across strata.

Cost: ~Rs. 2,500.

To seal the deal, get a shiny and majestic Corsair Carbide Series CC-9011050-WW cabinet.

Cost: ~Rs. 2,800.

Alternative choice: Circle Cc819.

Although GTX 1660 is brilliant, it is quite expensive. You'll have to spend more than 5K to assemble a PC with these components.

2600 is more powerful and scores significantly better in benchmark tests. It also costs a bit more. If you are making a choice between the two, we'd suggest the 2600.

Depends on personal preference. The AMD chip is amazing in its own right, so you can use that. NVIDIA, however, is cheaper and more accessible.
