Then there’s the memory. People are usually divided over which kit to pair with the Ryzen 3000 chip. The fastest ones cost an insane 20K while going for a cheaper option brings out the fear of a bottleneck. In this post, we will be putting together a 4K gaming PC under the 1 lakh mark. You can also use it for 1440p 144 FPS gaming, but 4K is our primary focus.

    Best Motherboard for the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X: MSI B450 Gaming Plus Max

    • Price: Rs. 9,200 (Link)

    The Gigabyte B450 Gaming Plus is one of the best boards you can buy for a 3rd Gen Ryzen 5 or the Ryzen 7 3700X. These chips don’t come with much headrooom for overclocking, so fast memory and sustained boost clocks are your best bets. It consists of 4 DDR4 slots with a maximum capacity of up to 64GB @ 4133MHz. It comes with AMD XFire support, 6 SATA slots, 4 PCIe x4 slots and a Turbo M.2 as well.

    Best Graphics Card for 4K Gaming: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super

    Boost Clock1815MHz
    Mem. Clock14000MHz
    Bus Width256-bit
    Connectors1 x 8 + 1 x 6-pin
    Warranty3 Years

    NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2070 Super is one of the best upper mid-range graphics cards on the market. While the reference Radeon RX 5700 XT is cheaper by a lofty 6K and performs only slightly worse, it will give you a migraine with all that excessive heat and noise. So unless you’re hard-pressed for cash, I’d recommend steering clear of it.

    Recommended Power Supply: Antec NE650M

    • Price: Rs. 4,635 (Link)

    The Antec NE650M is a semi-modular, Bronze certified PSU that comes with a whole 5 years of warranty. It should be sufficient for this build.

    Recommended Memory: ADATA XPG Spectrix D60G 8GBX2 DDR4 3200MHz RGB

    I’m sure you’ll want even more RGB in your system and the ADATA XPG Spectix promises just that, other than you know…speedy memory at a decent price point. It’s not very economical to opt for a 3600MHz kit as they’ll cost almost double without offering a notable performance boost. You can always overclock these DIMMs to 3400MHz at the very least to extract every last bit of performance from your Ryzen chip.

    Best SSD for Gaming: Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB M.2

    • Price: Rs. 9,749 (Link)
    Form FactorM.2
    InterfacePCI-Express 3.0 x2, NVMe 1.3
    Seq. Read Speeds3,500 MB/s
    Seq. Write Speeds3,500 MB/s

    The Samsung 970 EVO Plus is one of the fastest SSDs on the market with blazing fast speeds of up to 3,500 MB/s. With a drive this fast, you’ll never go back to traditional HDDs. We opted for a 3600X so we could spend the extra bucks on storage as it’ll have a much more noticeable impact on your gaming experience than a 3700X.

    Recommended Case: Corsair iCUE 220T RGB Airflow

    Price: Rs. 7,099 (Link)

    1. CPU- I7 9700k
      GPU- rtx 2070 super
      Motherboard- ASU’s rog
      Cooler- coolermaster 212 rgb
      PSU- Corsair cv (650wats)
      Memory-g.skill trident (3600mhz)
      Storage- seagade barracuda 1tb and silicon ace 240gb ssd

    2. Well, actually this build is realy stupid. You are spending 4k to 5k on your PSU and more than that on your case when you are on a 100k budget! And then a 10k 500gb SSD whereas you could get a 500gb A2000 and additional 2tb hdd. Also, you spend most of you money on GPU but I think you should have balanced it. You could have fit a 3700X with 2060 super in here with a good gold rated PSU along with more storage.
