Many of us have ascended to 1440p and 4K gaming but for the vast majority, 1080p is still the ideal budget. Most pre-built 1080p builds cost north of 50K, but guess what, you can build a capable setup for less than 40K INR. In this post, we will build a 1080p gaming for just 35K. You should be able to play all modern games like PUBG and Call of Duty at FHD ultra using this system.
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 Intel’s monolithic design isn’t sensitive to memory. You get one x16 PCIe 3.0 slot for a discrete graphics card and for decent I/O: 2x USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, each.
Best Budget CPU for 1080p Gaming: Intel Core i3-9100F
Price: Rs. 6,150 (Link)
|Cores / Threads||Base Clock||Boost Clock||Cache||TDP||Memory|
The 9th Gen Intel Core i3-9100F is a quad-core chip with a boost clock as high as 4.20GHz. It’s hands down the best gaming CPU under the 10K mark, delivering 120 FPS across most first-person shooters and faced paced eSports games without breaking a sweat. The perfect CPU for a budget build.
Best Budget Graphics Card for 1080p Gaming: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 6GB
Price: Rs. 16,328 (Link)
|Connectors||1 x 6-pin|
At the moment, the GeForce GTX 1660 is the best budget graphics card for 1080p gaming. It can render as many as 144 FPS in most shooters and at least 50+ FPS in other taxing titles like Monster Hunter and Assassins’ Creed Odyssey. It’s sufficient for at least the next year and a half.
Best Memory: Crucial 4GB 2400MHz DDR4 x2
Price: Rs. 2,580 (Link)
Unlike the 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs, Coffee Lake processors don’t need blazing fast memory to deliver optimum performance. With this 2400MHz dual-channel memory kit, you’ll be just fine.
Power Supply: Antec BP450P
Price: Rs. 2,119 (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. 2,550 (Link)
