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 under35,000 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 4,550 (Link)

The Asus Prime H310M board incorporates a premium build quality for less than 5K and supports the 8th and9th Gen Intel CPUs. You are limited to 32GB of DDR4 2666MHz RAM on two DIMMs, but that’ll be sufficient asCoffee Lake chips aren’t that sensitive to memory, unlike their Ryzen counterparts. It comes with one x16PCIe 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 6,629 (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 GeForce GTX 1660 6GB

Price: Rs 15,999 (Link)

The GeForce GTX 1660 is by far the best choice if you prefer buttery smooth 60 FPS at 1080p with no compromises in visual quality. Powered by the Turing architecture, this GPU makes AMD’s RX 580 obsolete by offering much better performance while costing notably less. It also draws much less power and runs relatively cooler. It renders most eSports titles at 100+ FPS at 1080p and is presently on sale at MDComputers for just 16K INR.

Best Budget DDR4 RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 4GBx2

Price: Rs. 3,998 (Link)

The Intel chips, unlike their Ryzen counterparts, aren’t that sensitive to memory, so a dual-channel 2400MHzRAM from G.Skill should be sufficient. If you ever feel adventurous, you can overclock it up to 3000MHz and even higher (fingers crossed) for some extra frames.

Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE 450

Price: Rs. 2,450 (Link)

The Cooler Master MWE 450 should be sufficient for this build. The CPU is capped at 65W and the GTX 1660 won’t exceed the 450W envelope even if overclocked, so don’t worry about being limited by the SMPS.

Case: Antec NX200 RGB

Price: Rs. 2,400 (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.
  • 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.

Summary: Best Gaming PC Build under Rs. 35,000 in India

  1. What is chips’s sensitiveness to memory ?
    What do chip have to do with memory ?

    If u have taken money from intel marketing, eat it..dont make stupid statements.

    • Uh right. Amd cpus are sensitive to memory because of the infinity fiber interconnect. Higher frequencies and tighter timings lead to notable gains in the ryzen chips.

  2. Bro, the components you chose are not fit for each other. The motherboard you chose only supports 8th gen processors and the processor you are choosing is a 9th gen processor. The system will not run. Please dont go for this.
