    Best Budget Gaming PC Build Under Rs. 25,000 in India (October 2019)

    Building a gaming PC under 30K is quite a daunting task. You have very limited money to spend on a graphics card and most midrange CPUs cost more than the entire build. However, there are alternatives for those of you on a strict budget. In this post, we show you how to build a makeshift budget PC under 25,000 INR, ideal for mild gaming, office work and plenty of day-to-day workloads.

    Best Motherboard: MSI A320M Pro-VD/S V2

    Price: Rs. 3,500 (Link)

    This is just about the cheapest AMD AM4+ motherboard you can get your hands on. The A320 platform is truly entrylevel: AMD locks out overclocking, you get limited I/O options, and obviously no scope for Crossfire, RGB, or anything remotely fancy. But it gives your APU a place to stay, and that’s what counts here.

    Best Budget CPU/GPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3400G APU

    Price: Rs. 12,850 (Link)

    The Ryzen 5 3400G isn’t the cheapest APU out there That award would go to the Ryzen 3 2200G which still retails for around 7K INR. However, it is most certainly the closest you’ll get to playable framerates at 1080p. The CPU and GPU are integrated together here. You get a 4-core, 8-thread second-gen Ryzen CPU based on 12nm Zen+ cores. (They haven’t moved these to 7nm yet), plus a Vega 11 iGPU. That gives you roughly one-fifth the performance of Vega 56. That’s not quite as bad as it sounds though. At low-medium settings and 720p, Vega 11 can handily deliver playable framerates in the 30-40 FPS range in AAA titles. If it runs on the base Xbox One, chances are it’ll run on this too.

    Best Memory for the Ryzen 5 3400G: 2x Adata XPG Gammix 4GB

    Price: Rs. 3,150 (Link)

    ADATA’s Gammix memory won’t set any records for RAM speed, but these are solid, very reasonably priced DDR4 2400 MHz modules. Why opt for dual-channel over a single 8GB module? Dual-channel almost always delivers better performance but this is even more accentuated with APU. This is because the Vega 11 doesn’t have its own dedicated VRAM pool. It shares the system RAM. A dualchannel RAM setup doubles your memory bandwidth. It’s double a very tiny amount to start with, but that’s definitely better than nothing, and it translates into framerates that are 5 FPS or more higher.

    Best PSU: Thermaltake LitePower 450W

    Price: Rs. 2,300 (Link)

    All you need is a power supply, as long as it doesn’t set your other parts on fire. The Thermaltake LitePower 450W does that job with ease. Considering that your APU is a 65W part, you won’t get anywhere near the PSU’s limit. But it does give you a reasonable amount of overhead if you ever want to add in a dedicated GPU. You get a 6 pin and a 6+2, so anything up to about a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti can be utilized.

    Best Storage: ADATA Ultimate SU650 240 GB SSD

    Price: Rs. 2,350 (Link)

    Trust me on this: A smaller SSD is always the better option compared to a larger HDD at the same price. 240 GB of space might not seem like much, but it’s adequate for 4-5 AAA games and some indies. And honestly, you don’t need more than that at any one time. At a little over Rs. 2,000, this is a very reasonable price for the amount of space you get. And if you feel the need to upgrade, you can just another one down the line.

    Best Case: Antec VSK 4000B

    Price: Rs. 2,250 (Link)

    No, this isn’t a nice case. But that’s kinda beyond the point. I’ve run open-case rigs for long enough to know that this is the least important part of your PC build. Especially considering our price constraint here, the cheapest option is the best.

    Summary: Best Budget PC Build Under Rs. 25,000 in India

    Let’s go over all the components once again. To build the best budget PC Build under 25K you will need:

    • CPU/GPU: AMD Ryzen 3 3400G APU
