We’ve covered gaming PC builds for higher price points. Now it’s time to go lower so more budget gamers can join in. As the title suggests, we’ll be listing parts of a gaming PC build for roughly ₹50,000. This build is suitable for running most modern games at Full HD (1080p) at 60 FPS on medium settings. Without any further ado, let’s jump right into it.
Parts For PC Build Under ₹50,000:
CPU – AMD Ryzen 5 2600
The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 is a well-rounded processor, offering 6 cores and 12 threads for a low price, making it an obvious choice for our build. It also comes included with an adequate cooler, propelling it up in the value charts compared to some other processors. In our testing with multiple CPUs for gaming, we found 6 cores to provide a good balance between price and performance, especially for a gaming PC build meant for 1080p.
Motherboard – Gigabyte B450M DS3H
The DS3H from GIGABYTE is one of the more affordable B450 boards. It focuses on providing value without having to sacrifice too much on the overall performance and quality of the board. It provides all the basic features one needs, and will also allow you to overclock your processor. All this makes it the best budget choice for our build.
We decided to go with the least expensive kit of 3000 MHz or above, 4GBx2 memory we could find as Ryzen processors, especially the earlier ones like the 2600 we are using in this build, gain a very significant bump by using high-speed dual-channel memory. I would recommend looking in your neighborhood stores for memory with similar specifications if you can’t find this kit or similar ones online, as there seem to be availability issues with 2x4GB kits online. Also, do not forget to select the correct memory overclock profile in the BIOS to allow your memory to run at its rated speed, or else it will run at the JEDEC default of 2133 MHz.
The SU800 is an SSD that performs admirably for the price, thanks to the use of 3D TLC NAND in it. We chose a 256 GB variant for our build as it offers enough to store Windows and your most-used applications. The WD Blue will serve as our mass storage, to make sure you don’t run out of space for your games. We did not opt for an NVMe SSD as this build is a bit more budget-oriented. The minimal performance increase in most activities does not justify the price hike.
Video Card – Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Pulse OC 8GB
The RX 580 is one of the best value cards of the last few years. It has held up in performance, while its price continues to drop. We opted for a Sapphire Pulse in this build variant because not only does it perform the best, it also looks the part. It features a beautiful backplate and a great cooler design. We would recommend you choose the same if possible, as some of the coolers from other manufacturers are known to have issues.
Case – Corsair 100R
Cases are very subjective, so feel free to choose any case that you like as long as it fits the build’s components. I will be choosing the Corsair 100R for this build though, because of its low price, sleek looks and ease to build in.
Power Supply – Corsair CX450
The CX450 is certified 80+ Bronze, has a warranty of 5 years and includes black braided cables. There are cheaper options available, but I personally would not recommend most of them for your build, as it is important to get a good power supply for the lifetime of your PC components.
