We’ve already covered PC builds for higher price budgets, so it’s time to build a PC for the best price/performance ratio. This build is suitable for running most modern games at Full HD(1080p) at 75 FPS on medium settings. Without any further ado, let’s jump right into it.
Parts For PC Build Under ₹60,000:
CPU – AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X is a well-rounded processor, offering 6 cores and 12 threads for a low price, making it an obvious choice for our build. It’s faster than the base R5 2600, and only costs a bit more for faster clocks. The Ryzen 5 2600X is also great for light content creation, like video editing. It also comes included with an adequate cooler, propelling it up in the value charts compared to some other processors. In our testing with multiple CPUs for gaming, we found 6 cores to provide a good balance between price and performance, especially for a gaming PC build meant for 1080p.
Motherboard – Gigabyte B450M DS3H
The DS3H from GIGABYTE is one of the more affordable B450 boards. It focuses on providing value without having to sacrifice too much on the overall performance and quality of the board. It provides all the basic features one needs, and will also allow you to overclock your processor. All this makes it the best budget choice for our build.
We opted to go for the most affordable dual-channel 3200MHz CL16 kit we could find since Ryzen CPUs tend to get a significant bump in performance with faster memory. Remember to “overclock” the memory to run at its advertised speed of 3200 MHz, though, or it will run at the JEDEC default of 2133 MHz. Depending on your motherboard, the memory overclock may be called DOCP (Direct Overclock Profile), EOCP (Extended Overclock Profiles), or XMP (eXtreme Memory Profile).
Storage – Crucial MX500 500 GB SSD and WD Caviar Blue 1 TB 7200RPM HDD
The MX500 is one of the best SSDs out there for its price, and a 500 GB variant should let you store plenty of your games along with your OS on it. The WD Blue will serve as our mass storage, to make sure you don’t run out of space for your games. Since the primary purpose of this build is to game, we picked a SATA SSD as while an NVMe SSD will certainly be faster, it is unlikely to offer any tangible benefits to you. The loading times for most games, and boot times for Windows, remain largely the same whether you use the recommended Crucial MX500 or a more expensive NVMe drive. If you have to deal with large media files and have the extra money, an NVMe drive is definitely a good upgrade
Video Card – Gigabyte GTX 1660 Super OC 6GB
At its best, the 1660 Super beats the 1660 Ti, while being a stone’s throw at its worst. This, paired with the significantly lower price, made the choice obvious between the two. We opted for the Gigabyte version because of the great customer service they provide in India. You can find more affordable versions of this card by the likes of GALAX, but the service in case you run into a problem can be hit or miss. For benchmarks, check out our review of the card.
Case – Corsair 100R
Cases are very subjective, so feel free to choose any case that you like as long as it fits the build’s components. I will be choosing the Corsair 100R for this build though, because of its low price, sleek looks and ease to build in.
Power Supply – Corsair CX450
The CX450 is certified 80+ Bronze, has a warranty of 5 years and includes black braided cables. There are cheaper options available, but I personally would not recommend most of them for your build, as it is important to get a good power supply for the lifetime of your PC components.
