For a 4K Gaming PC, you need a monstrous graphics card at least the GeForce RTX 2070 Super but I’d recommend nothing short of the 2080 Super. The RTX 2080 Ti is the ideal choice except it costs so damn much. There are many titles like Red Dead Redemption 2, Metro Exodus and Control that don’t deliver 60 FPS at the higher preset at 4K even when using an overclocked RTX 2080 Super, and as such a 2080 Ti is recommended, if you can afford it that is. Let’s dive right in!
Best CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3800X
- Price: Rs. 30,599 (Link)
|Cores/Threads||Base Clock||Boost Clock||Cache Size||TDP|
The Ryzen 7 3800X is just a few hundred rupees more expensive than the 3700X and comes with a much higher base clock of 3.9GHz. This has a notable impact on gaming performance essentially performing on par with the 3900X in most titles. The fact that you’re going with an octa-core Ryzen chip also means that you’re getting performance on par or better than the Intel Core i9-9900K in multi-threaded workloads.
Cooler: Deepcool GamerStorm Maelstrom 240 RGB
Price: Rs. 5,699 (Link)
Deepcool’s GameStorm 240 RGB liquid cooler is one of the cheaper options that come with dual-fan radiators and is ideal for the Ryzen 7 3800X. It should allow the CPU to boost up to the max boost frequency and some mild overclocking.
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti
- Price: Rs. 94,399 (Link)
|Boost Clock||1545 MHz|
|Memory Speed||14 Gbps|
|Bus Width||352 Bit|
Since we’re aiming for 4K 60 FPS or 1440p 144FPS, we’ll be recommending NVIDIA’s Turing flagship, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti which costs almost half of the total budget. Granted it’s way more expensive than it should be but it’ll help drive pretty much every modern title at 4K with all the settings cranked up to ultra. There’s really no other option and if you want the best performance at 4K, this is the card you’ll want. An RTX 2080 Super falls short in more taxing games like Metro Exodus and Control and lowering the settings doesn’t always help.
Motherboard: Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero
Price: Rs. 32,980 (Link)
|CPU Support||2nd & 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs|
|RAM Support||128GB DDR4 up to 4800MHz (OC)|
|PCIe Slots||2x PCIe 4.0 x 16, 1x PCIe x 8 for Triple SLI/XFX, 4x PCIe 4.0 x 1|
|Multi-GPU Support||Yes; XFX and SLI|
|Storage||2x M.2, 6x SATA 8 Gbps|
|USB||8x USB 3.2 Gen2, 6x USB 3.2 Gen1, 4x USB 2.0|
The ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII is one of the best X570 motherboards out there. Powered by a robust VRM and power delivery system, it boasts one of the finest onboard audio and WiFi chipsets on the market. Asus ROG motherboards have the best BIOS UI, making overclocking a tad bit easier. The ASRock X570 Taichi is also a potent motherboard.
Memory: ADATA XPG Spectrix D60G 8GBX2 DDR4 3200MHz RGB
Price: Rs. 7,699 (Link)
The ADATA XPG Spectrix has more RGB lighting than any other memory kit on the market. Moreover, it has a tested speed of 3200MHz. That should be just fine for your Ryzen 7. If you’re lucky, then you will be able to overclock it to 3600MHz. If not, well it’ll still run at 3200MHz which is enough really.

Storage: Samsung 256GB 860 EVO M.2 + Samsung 860 QVO 1TB SATA
Price: 860 EVO: Rs. 3,799 , 860 QVO: Rs. 9,399
Samsung still has the best SSD drives in the market, NVMe as well as SATA. The 256GB M.2 drive will make sure your system is lighting fast while the 1TB 860 QVO is ideal for games and all the other bulky stuff. Granted being a QLC NAND SSD, it will be slower than MLC and even TLC based drives but it will still be much faster than traditional magnetic storage. And more importantly, it’s affordable.
Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower RGB 850W Gold
Price: Rs. 11,199 (Link)
Thermaltake’s 850W power supply comes with all the bells and whistles of a high-end power supply and can be had for a reasonable price. It’s fully modular with 80 Plus Gold certification and has RGB, what more do you want.
Cabinet: Thermaltake View 27
Price: Rs. 5,850 (Link)
Thermaltake has the best PC bases in the mid-range and high-end space. Transparent, tempered glass and tons of RGB. They are absolutely gorgeous. We’ll be recommending the Thermaltake View 27 for this build. If you can afford it, I suggest checking out the View 37. It’s an E-ATX cabinet that will make you believe in love.
