    Best Gaming PC Build Under Rs. 30,000 for 1080p: Updated October 2019

    - Advertisement -

    Most people who look towards gaming consoles believe that building equivalent PC builds are not very price effective. In this post, we will put together a gaming PC under Rs. 30,000 that will handle each and every modern game at 1080p with ease. Considering that the PS4 runs most games at 900p and costs almost 40K, I’d say this is a much better and more economic gaming machine. Let’s get to it.

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

    Price: Rs. 5,800 (Link)

    The Intel Core i3-9100F is a quad-core CPU that runs at an impressive 4.20GHz which should help sustain higher frame rates in 1080p gaming. This part performs on par with the Ryzen 5 2600 when it comes to consumer workloads such as PC gaming and so we’ll be opting for it over the Ryzen offerings.

    Best Budget Graphics Card for 1080p Gaming: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB

    Price: Rs. 11,000 (Link)

    Memory4GB GDDR5
    Boost Clock1665MHz
    Mem. Clock8Gbps
    Bus Width128-bit
    Dimensions160×116 (mm)
    Warranty3 Years

    At launch, the GeForce GTX 1650 turned out to be a rather useless budget product considering that the older Polaris based Radeon RX 570 performed better while costing less. However, as the latter is now disappearing from the market to make way for the Navi 14 GPUs, the cheaper 1650s have all of a sudden become viable for entry-level rigs.

    Alternate Graphics Card: AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB

    Price: Rs. 11,800 (Link)

    Memory4GB GDDR5
    Boost Clock1255MHz
    Mem. Clock7Gbps
    Bus Width256-bit
    Dimensions H=40 L=232 W=116 mm
    Connectors1 x 8-pin
    Warranty3 Years

    If you don’t want to go with the lower-end Turing card, the Radeon RX 570 4GB is a GPU worth looking at. Although, it may not be available for the same rock bottom prices as before, at 12K INR it’s still very competitive.

    Best Motherboard for Core i3-9100F: Asus Prime H310M

    Price: Rs. 4,419 (Link)

    CPUIntel 8th and 9th Gen (mini-ITX)
    RAM2 x DDR4 memory slots, supports up to 32GB @ 2666 MHz
    PCIe1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, 1 x PCIe 2.0 x1 slots
    Storage4 x SATA 6Gb/s ports

    The ASUS Prime H310M is one of the cheapest Coffee Lake compatible motherboards, but considering that we’re opting for an i3 that can’t be overclocked, it’s the ideal option. It comes with two DDR4 RAM DIMMs, one PCIe x16 lane and four SATA slots. You won’t be getting any M.2 slots here, but that’s no surprise.

    Best RAM for Core i3-9100F: Adata XPG Gammix D30 8GB DDR4

    Price: Rs. 2,900 (Link)

    Intel’s Coffee Lake chips aren’t that sensitive to memory so we’ll be opting for an 8GB 2666MHz stick. Regardless, as the mobo doesn’t support higher frequencies, it’s pointless to go for expensive models. You can easily add a second 8GB DIMM later on for dual-channel support but for now, you should be fine. The memory won’t be the bottlenecking factor in this build anyway, so don’t sweat it.

    Recommended PSU: Cooler Master MWE 450 230V

    Price: Rs. 2,485 (Link)

    Cooler Master’s MWE 450W retails for Rs. 2,485, making it the perfect fit for our budget gaming PC build under 30,000. It’s really compact and made of premium quality components that CM is known for. Yes, it’s not modular but for 2.5K what did you expect?

    PC Case: Antec VSK 4000B

    Price: Rs. 2,250 (Link)

    At this budget, we’ll have to accept the fact that a fancy cabinet is out of reach. Sure, you can upgrade later on but at the moment we’ll have to forgo all those shiny tempered glass panels and RGB lighting. The Antec VSK 4000B costs just over two thousand but still doesn’t look like trash. Possibly the best low-end PC cabinet.

    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB

    Price: Rs. 2,900 (Link)

    As we’re nearing our budget constraint of 30K, we’ll have to skimp on the storage and go for an entry-level 1000GB Seagate HDD. For the time being, this should serve you well. We’d suggest throwing in an SSD for the OS as it’ll greatly improve your overall experience, it costs barely 2K.

    Summary: Best Gaming PC Build Under Rs. 30,000:

    I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and wondering about the vast undiscovered expanses of our universe.
