At present, the Battle Royale genre is one of the most popular among PC gamers worldwide. Over the past few years, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, Epic’s Fortnite and Blizzard’s Overwatch have been some of the most popular games with the latter even winning multiple Game of the Year awards. In this post, we’ll show you how to build a PC that can run these games at 1080p 100 FPS with all the settings cranked up to ultra. This will be a sub-50K build, so you should be able to run any and every game at 1080p 60 FPS for at least 15-18 months.
Best CPU for Gaming @ 1080p: AMD Ryzen 5 3500
Price: Rs. 11,008 (Link)
AMD’s Ryzen 5 3500 based on the Zen 2 architecture is finally here to trade blows with the Intel Core i5-9400F. It beats the Coffee lake i5 in multi-threaded workloads while performing on par or slightly slower in gaming. Courtesy of AMD’s AM4 platform we can save a bit of money on the motherboard and spend it on faster SSD storage.

Recommended Memory: Adata XPG Gammix D10 8GBX2 DDR4 3200MHz
Price: Rs. 6,200 (Link)
As always, we’ll be recommending a 3200 MHz kit rather than those insanely expensive 3600MHz ones. The performance gap between the two isn’t enough to warrant that kind of price. Here a comparison if you are still not convinced.
Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE 450W
Price: Rs. 2,450 (Link)
Since this is a sub-50K setup, we won’t be investing in a Gold or Platinum PSU nor a modular one. The Cooler Master MWE 450W is our
