Building a decent gaming PC in India under budget restraints is quite the herculean task. With taxes and crazy import duties being a PC aficionado this far East is quite an expensive hobby. Nevertheless, we here are TechQuila are committed to helping you build the best PC for the moolah you have on hand. So, if you’ve been looking to build a gaming PC under the 60,000 INR price bracket, you’ve come to the right place and the right article. Oh, did we already mention that this build would be capable of pulling off 60+ FPS at a 1080p ultra? Thank us later!

Best Budget Gaming CPU: Intel Core i5-9400F

Price: Rs. 11,999 (Link)

Intel’s CPU prices have dropped by a notch ever since the Ryzen 3000 parts hit retail. The 9th Gen Core i5-9400F has come down to 12K INR, making it the ideal processor for our PC build under 60K. It is faster than every other AMD Ryzen chip in this price range when it comes to gaming and the six-cores provide enough oomph to run heaviest of workloads.

Best Budget Gaming Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660

Price: Rs. 17,900 (Link)

Let’s put that money we saved with the CPU to better use now, shall we? With the award-winning Turing architecture from NVIDIA, 6 gigabytes of GDDR5 memory paired with a 192-bit bus, the Twin X2 GTX 1660 from INNO3D is “THE” GPU to get in this price range.

Our GPU of choice for this build.

It has enough grunt to handle most modern titles with ease at 1080p ultra. Twitch and YouTube sessions would be a complete breeze! The same cooling solution from the bigger RTX 2060 and 2070 make their way here and this is the icing on the cake. Open Broadcaster Software optimization also comes standard with these 1660s.

Best Budget Motherboard for Gaming: ASUS ROG Strix B365-G

Price: Rs. 8,675 (Link)

The ASUS ROG Strix B365 Gaming is one of the most feature-loaded Intel motherboards featuring SupremeFX audio, Auro Sync RGB, multiple USB 3.1 ports and an overall gorgeous design that the ROG line is known for. While it may be a bit on the expensive side, the extra features are well worth it and the board is one of the most durable ones to boot.

Best RAM for Intel Core i5-9400F: ADATA XPG Gammix D10 8GB

Price: Rs. 3,200 (Link)

Unlike the Ryzen CPUs, the Intel processors aren’t that sensitive to memory, and as such, there’s no reason to splurge for an expensive memory kit. The ADATA XPG 8GB DIMM priced a little over 3K should do just fine for this price effective rig.

Storage Recommendation

SSD for OS: Samsung 860 EVO (Price: Rs. 3799)

HDD: Any 7200 rpm drive

Power-supply: Antec VP600P 600W

Price: Rs. 3,450 (Link)

For the power supply, we have Antec’s 600W solution which is more than sufficient to power this rig safely, providing ample overclocking headroom for the GeForce GTX 1660.

Cabinet

Like every other build, the choice of the case of the computer cabinet falls to personal preference. Our recommendations are:

  1. Excellent build. But IMO cabinet is too costly for this 60k build. Deepcool mattrexx 50 costs around 3.5 k. So the saved 4.5k can be utilised for another 8gb ram or perhaps adding another 2k to the saved 4.5k to get a 1660ti.

  2. Can someone help me out?
    I’m going to buy a prebuilt pc for 40k
    it has AMD 3 1200 processor
    8gb ddr4 ram
    gtx 1050ti 4 GB DDR5
    1 tb harddisk
    120 gb ssd
    and some preinstalled games
    is 40 k worth it?

  3. Great information. But if i don’t want the pc only for gaming then what should i do for graphic card? Mean i want run heavy applications like Photoshop and autocad and decent gaming.

    And tell me also about the monitor keyboard and mouse and speakers.

  4. No, you can build a better pc than this in this budget actually this build costs around 32,000 to 34,000…. in 40,000 you can get better performance than this lime you can go for ryzen 3rd gen and 1060 graphic card….

    • You don’t need a higher end processor, as long as you’re aiming for 60 FPS. This CPU is perfect for that and costs lesser than the 3rd gen Ryzen lineup, as for the 1060, that’s just not worth it. The 1660 is a much better choice.

  5. Most of the build has great price-to-performance, but going for single channel RAM is a rookie mistake and will cause a performance hit. A 2x4GB is better, or like others have said, get a cheaper case with obviously better airflow than that mATX bauble and go for a 2x8GB kit. The motherboard has 4 DIMM slots so either fix is fine.

    The other oopsie is using a 5400 rpm HDD in a 2019 desktop build. Use a 7200rpm drive for faster r/w speeds, it will be more noticeable especially since you’re using it with a SSD.

  6. Even though the i5-9400F is good enough for gaming, it isn’t a wise decision to build a computer with it just to save a bit of money. It will soon show its age with just 6 cores and no Hyperthreading. It might not matter much for max/avg FPS, but 1% low performance will definitely take a hit in many modern games that try to use all available threads. And the LGA1151 socket is a dead end when it comes to upgradability while AM4 will be sticking around for at least the next generation of Ryzen processors.

    Better get a cheaper B450 motherboard and get an R5 3600 instead for a slight increase in price.

    • The 9400F is 13K. The 3600 is 18K. That’s 5K. Sure you can splurge for it but there will be no gain in terms of gaming performance. Six cores aren’t going to be insufficient anytime soon. Hyperthreading is redundant in gaming workloads.

  7. Its not good ,I built one a few weeks ago ,for 58000 it gets me 1660 ti ,16gb ram ryzen 5 3600 ,SSD 250gb motherboard and Corsair power supply
