Building a 1080p gaming rig may usually seem like the easiest (and cheapest) way to go, but more often than not, most amateur builders skimp out on one or two components (say the motherboard or the PSU) which often causes them a lot of grief in the future. In this post, we’ll demonstrate how to build the ideal 1080p gaming rig under the 60K bracket without making any compromises that might come to bite you later on.
Best 1080p Gaming Build Under 60,000 INR
Best Gaming CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3500
Price: Rs. 11,149 (Link)
|Cores / Threads||Base Clock||Boost Clock||L3 Cache||TDP||PCIe Lanes||Memory Support|
|6/6||3.6GHz||4.1GHz||16MB||65W||PCIe 4.0 x 24||Dual DDR4-3200|
AMD’s mid-range performance king, the Ryzen 5 3500 based on the 7nm Zen 2 architecture is finally here. With a price lower than the Intel Core i5-9400F, it promises to be the go-to CPU for builders in the sub-60K range. It’s almost the same as the 3600 except drops SMT which isn’t a must for games anyway. Although we haven’t tested it just yet, knowing how potent the other 3rd Gen Ryzen processors are, we’re pretty confident that it’ll give the Intel competitors a run for their money.
Best Graphics Card: ASUS GeForce RTX 2060 Phoenix
Price: Rs. 24,990 (Link)
|Dimensions||7 ” x 4.76 ” x 1.5 “|
|Connectors||1 x 8-pin|
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 is priced pretty well at just below 25K INR, making RTX more affordable than ever before. The ASUS RTX 2060 Phoenix with a single fan is one of the cheapest models in the Indian market. Fret not, we’ve already tested it and there is not major throttling. It’s still the best GPU for 1080p-120FPS or 1440p-60FPS gaming.
Best Motherboard for the Ryzen 5: MSI B450M PRO-M2 V2
Price: Rs. 5,585 (Link)
|CPU||AMD Ryzen 1st, 2nd, |
|RAM||2 x DDR4 memory slots, supports up to 32GB @ 3466 MHz|
|PCIe||1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, 2 x PCIe 2.0 x1 slots|
|Storage||4 x SATA 6Gb/s ports, 1 x M.2 slot|
MSI’s B450M PRO-M2 is the motherboard to get if you’re going with the Ryzen 5. With support for up to 3466 MHz dual-channel memory, it comes with a PCIe 3.0 slot as well as an M.2 for blazing-fast SSD storage. It includes four SATA 6Gbps slots and 7.1 channel HD Audio support which should be enough for most users.
Best RAM for the Ryzen 5: Adata XPG Gammix D30 8GBX2 DDR4 2666MHz
Price: Rs. 6,000 (Link)
The Adata XPG Gammix D30 is a very flexible memory kit. With a stock clock of 2666MHz, it can be easily pushed to 3000-3200MHz without any significant tweaking. It’s better to with a cheaper kit that can be overclocked rather than splurging for an expensive one that performs almost the same.
- SSD for OS: Adata Ultimate SU630 240GB
- Price: Rs. 2,360
- HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 rpm
- Price: Rs. 2,900

Power-supply: Antec NE550M
Price: Rs. 3,950 (Link)
For the power supply, we have Antec’s 550W solution which is more than sufficient to power this rig safely. To top it up, it is Bronze certified and semi-modular and should go well with this budget effective build.
Cabinet: Antec Dark Phantom DP501
Price: Rs. 4,650 (Link)
The Antec Dark Phantom DP501 is a beautiful case featuring RGB lighting and a tempered side panel. The price tag of 4.6K is all too enticing to avoid this mid-tower case.
