When you’re building a gaming PC, usually the first task is to decide the budget and your target resolution/FPS. This will directly determine what quality will you be running the games at and how well will your computer perform. In this post, we’ll be covering a build guide for the best gaming PC under Rs. 70,000.
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3500
Price: Rs. 11,008 (Link)
|Cores / Threads||Base Clock||Boost Clock||L3 Cache||TDP||PCIe Lanes||Memory Support|
|6/6||3.9GHz||4.1GHz||9MB||65W||PCIe 3.0 x 16||Dual DDR4-2666|
AMD’s Ryzen 5 3500 is one of the best budget CPUs in the market. It’s essentially a 3600 without hyperthreading and slightly lower clocks. It competes with the Intel Core i5-9400 and performs more or less on par with it in gaming workloads while beating it in multi-threaded ones.
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060
Price: Rs. 25,799 (Link)
|Bus Width||192 Bit|
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 is at an all-time low of 25.8K INR, making RTX more affordable than ever before. The ASUS RTX 2060 Phoenix is selling for slightly less but I’d suggest going with the Colorful or the Inno3D variant as they feature a much better heatsink.
Motherboard: MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX
Price: Rs. 6,350 (Link)
|CPU Support||1st, 2nd & 3rd Gen Ryzen|
|RAM||64GB of DDR4 RAM @ 3866MHz|
|PCIe||1 x PCIe x16; 2 x PCIe x1|
|Storage||M2x1; 4 x SATAIII|
|USB||USB 3.2 x 6, USB 2 x 8|
The MSI B450 Pro is one of the better AMD motherboards in the sub-7K range. It comes with ample storage options and support for up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM @ 3866MHz.
Best RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GBx 2 @ 3200MHz
Price: Rs. 6,480 (Link)
G.Skill’s Ripjaws V memory kit brings high-speed RAM to the masses. Easily overclockable to up to 3400MHz, it’s the ideal pick for not only Ryzen but Intel processors as well.
- SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB
- Price: Rs. 6,499
- HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 rpm
- Price: Rs. 2,899
Power Supply: Corsair CX550
Price: Rs. 4,475 (Link)
The Corsair CX range is one of the best power supply units in the market. Offering bronze certification and a whole bunch of cables, it should be enough for this 70K gaming build. You could go for a modular PSU for a cleaner build but that’ll cost you.
Cabinet: Deepcool Dukase WHV3
Price: Rs. 4,999 (Link)
The choice of the cabinet largely falls to personal preference and tastes. For this build, we’ll be going with the Deepcool Dukase WHV3. You can go with a black or white case depending on the build theme.
