    Best Gaming PC Build Under Rs. 35,000 for 1080p: Updated October 2019

    - Advertisement -

    Building a PC in the budget segment especially for gaming can be a daunting task. That’s doubly true if you are based in India where taxes and customs charges make it almost impossible to build a gaming rig without breaking the bank. In this post, we’ll show you what parts you’ll be needing to build a gaming PC under 35,000 INR powerful enough to run all modern titles at 1080p 60 FPS. Let’s get to it!

    Best Budget Motherboard: Asus Prime H310M

    Price: Rs 4,475 (Link)

    The Asus Prime H310M board incorporates a premium build quality for less than 5K and supports the 8th and 9th Gen Intel CPUs. You are limited to 32GB of DDR4 2666MHz RAM on two DIMMs, but that’ll be sufficient as Coffee Lake chips aren’t that sensitive to memory. It comes with one x16 PCIe 3.0 slot for a discrete graphics card and has decent I/O options with two USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, each. You’re not getting any RGB here and at this price point, it’s not surprising.

    Best Budget CPU for 1080p Gaming: Intel Core i3-9100F

    Price: Rs. 6,000 (Link)

    The 9th Gen Intel Core i3-9100F is a quad-core chip that boosts to as much as 4.20GHz. The reason we opted for an Intel chip is: In comparison to the 1st and 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen parts, the 9th Gen lineup performs notably better in gaming thanks to their superior IPC and higher clocks. The 3rd Gen Matisse products are comparable but they cost more than 15K for the lower-end Ryzen 5 3600 which isn’t really suited for this budget build.

    Best Gaming Graphics Card for 1080p Gaming: NVIDIA GTX 1650

    Price: Rs. 11,000 (Link)

    Next to the GeForce GTX 1660, the 1650 is the second-best GPU for 1080p gaming. Powered by the Turing architecture, this GPU performs slightly worse than the Radeon RX 570. For the same reason, we were recommending the latter, but now it seems to have run out of stock at most retailers. Till the Radeon RX 5500 is launched, we’ll be recommending the GeForce GTX 1650 for this build, but fret not if you are worried about future-proofing, then you don’t have to wait long for little Navi.

    Best Memory: Crucial 4GB 2400MHz DDR4 x2

    Price: Rs. 2,752 (Link)

    Unlike the Ryzen chips, Coffee Lake processors aren’t sensitive to memory, so there’s no need to splurge for an expensive kit. Crucial’s 4GB 2400MHz kits can be easily overclocked to at least 2666MHz which is enough for the Core i3-9100F. The dual–channel config should remove any memory-related bottlenecks.

    Power Supply: Antec BP450P

    Price: Rs. 2,250 (Link)

    Since we are opting for a GeForce GTX 1660, it’s better to go with a 450W power supply, and that’s the recommended wattage from NVIDIA. Since most people hate the VS series, we will be opting for the Antec BP450P. It runs fairly quietly and comes with 3 years of warranty support.

    Case: Antec NX200 RGB

    Price: Rs. 2,375 (Link)

    So, that’s about it. The total cost comes down to approximately 35K and you get a clean build with decent components that should be able to run most games at 1080p for the next couple of years. If you throw in a monitor, HDD and the peripherals, the total cost should come around 40-45K which again is a very reasonable price for a budget gaming PC. Some monitor and peripheral suggestions from our side are:

    • You can skimp on the image quality and brightness and go for a TN panel for as low as 6K, or you can pay slightly more and opt for an IPC panel for a bit over 7,000 INR.
    • As for the HDD, the Seagate Barracuda 1TB with a price tag of 2,900 INR is our recommendation.
    • Since we have some spare mullah to spend, it’ll be in our best interest to invest in an SSD. It will greatly improve load times. We recommend the WD Green 240 GB 2.5 inch (SATA III) which costs just over 2K INR.
    • When it comes to the keyboard/mouse combo, you’ve got tons and tons of options, you can go plain and simple or if you like shiny things, snag a backlit gaming combo.
    • I’d suggest sticking to membrane keyboards as the mechanical ones cost well over 5K and aren’t quite worth it, given that your entire build budget is just over 40K.
