Best Gaming PC Build Under Rs. 40,000 for Playing @ 1080p Ultra: Get 120 FPS in PUBG, CS: Go & Fortnite

    - Advertisement -

    Most gamers in India look towards a 1080p gaming build for playing, with the more wealthier folk playing at 1440p. This is mainly because Battle Royale and competitive games like CS: GO and PUBG are most popular in India and these titles demand higher frame rates over resolution. In this post, we’ll be building a gaming PC for 1080p gaming under Rs. 40,000.

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

    Price: Rs. 6,150 (Link)

    Intel’s lower-end 9th Gen CPUs are actually quite competitive when it comes to gaming performance. The Core i3-9100F is a quad-core CPU lacking an iGPU, unlike most Intel chips. However, a boost clock of 4.2GHz and strong IPC delivers frame rates north of 100 FPS in most games. That’s more than what your graphics card will render, so don’t worry about a CPU bottleneck. Just a reminder, the 9th Gen i3 is comparable to the 6th and 7th Gen i7 flagships. All three are quad-core parts based on the Skylake core.

    Best Budget Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 6GB

    Price: Rs. 16,328 (Link)

    Memory6GB GDDR5
    Boost Clock1800MHz
    Mem. Clock8Gbps
    Bus Width192-bit
    Dimensions228*131.5*41.5 mm
    Connectors1 x 6-pin
    Warranty3 Years

    The GeForce GTX 1660 is undoubtedly the best graphics card for 1080p gaming. While the GTX 1660 Super is capable of running most games at 1440p ultra, it’s slightly out of our budget and you don’t really need it for 1080p gaming. The Turing encoder on the 16 series cards will come in handy if you’re into streaming or YouTubing. Of course, you don’t get ray-tracing but then again none of the games in this bracket support it either way so doesn’t really matter.

    Best Budget Motherboard: Asus TUF H310 Plus Gaming

    Price: Rs. 6,170 (Link)

    CPUs Supported8th & 9th Gen Intel
    Memory2 x DIMM, Max. 32GB @ Up to 2666MHz
    PCIe1 x PCIe 3.0 x16
    2 x PCIe 2.0 x1
    Storage4 x SATA 6Gb
    1 x M.2 Socket 3
    USB Ports4 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 port(s)
    6 x USB 2.0/1.1 port(s)

    ASUS’ TUF lineup has some of the best gaming components you’ll find on the market. With a sturdy build and slick design, the TUF H310 gaming motherboard strikes the right balance between price and quality. It’s the ideal for pairing up with both the Core i3-9100F as well as the Core i5-9400F. With support for up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM @ 2666MHz via two DIMMs, a PCIe x16 slot for a dedicated GPU, 4 SATA ports and an NVMe, it should be sufficient for all your devices.

    Best Memory for 40K INR Build: Adata XPG Flame 8GB DDR4 @ 2666MHz

    Price: Rs. 2,600 (Link)

    Unlike AMD’s Ryzen chips, the Intel Coffee Lake processors aren’t sensitive to memory, so there’s no need to splurge for an expensive kit. The Adata XPG flame has been tested to run at 2666MHz which is the upper limit for the Core i3. There’s no need to go with dual-memory in case of an Intel as the performance boost usually isn’t as pronounced. Regardless, if you feel strongly about it you may add another 8GB DIMM.

    Power Supply: Corsair CX450

    Price: Rs. 3,430 (Link)

    The Corsair CX series is one of the best budget power supplies in the market. It’s not modular but does come with Bronze certification which is more than what you can ask for at this price point.

    Cabinet: Antec NX300

    Price: Rs. 3,250 (Link)

    Antec has some really pretty cases in the entry-level and budget segments. Most of these cabinets come with RGB, a tempered glass side-panel and a gorgeous design- just what we need for out 40K gaming build.

    Storage: Adata Ultimate SU630

    Price: Rs. 3,820 (Link)

    When you’ve got money for just one drive, it’s better to get a moderate-sized SSD rather than an HDD. If you can afford it, however, I suggest getting a fast SSD worth 3-4K bucks and a WD Black HDD for storing games. These days you run out of storage real fast.
