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.
Motherboard – MSI B450M PRO-M2 MAX
The B450M Pro-M2 MAX from MSI 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. Make sure to look around and see if there are more affordable B450 options around you, though, as motherboard prices vary a lot from place to place.
We opted to go for the most affordable 3200MHz CL16 stick we could find in this build since Ryzen CPUs tend to get a significant bump in performance with faster memory. Remember to “overclock” the memory to run at its advertised speed of 3200 MHz, though, or it will run at the JEDEC default of 2133 MHz. Depending on your motherboard, the memory overclock may be called DOCP (Direct Overclock Profile), EOCP (Extended Overclock Profiles), or XMP (eXtreme Memory Profile). We chose a single channel configuration because of ease in future upgrades. If you have no plans to upgrade your PC in the future, a 4GBx2 kit is better suited for you, as Ryzen processors benefit heavily from dual channel memory.
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 back plate 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.
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.
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 175R 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.
