Best Gaming PC Build Under Rs. 70,000: December 2019


    In this post, we’ll be building a gaming PC build under Rs. 70,000. This rig will be able to deliver consistent 100+ FPS at 1440p across a wide range of eSports titles and up to 75 FPS at the highest graphics preset in the rest. Since we’re looking to cross the 100 FPS mark, we’ll have to opt for a capable hex-core CPU that can keep up with the GPU. Let’s get to it.

    CPU: Intel Core i5-9400F

    Price: Rs. 11,699 (Link)

    Cores / ThreadsBase ClockBoost ClockL3 CacheTDPPCIe LanesMemory Support
    6/62.9GHz4.1GHz9MB65WPCIe 3.0 x 16Dual DDR4-2666

    We’ll be going with the Intel Core i5-9400F this time. It’ll help stay above the 100 FPS mark in pretty much every title. While the Ryzen 5 3500 is also an excellent option, in terms of gaming performance the Core i5 is slightly better plus it doesn’t require a fast memory, saving us a bit of cash for fast storage.

    Motherboard: MSI B365M PRO-VDH

    Price: Rs. 6,399 (Link)

    CPU8th and 9th Gen Intel Core
    Memory4x DD4 up to 64GB @ 2666MHz
    Storage6x SATA 6Gb/s, 1x M.2
    Expansion Slots1x PCIe 3.0 x16
    2x PCIe 3.0 x1
    USB8x USB 3.1 Gen1
    6x USB 2.0 ports

    The MSI B365M Pro VDH is by far one of the best boards for a midrange Intel CPU. With support for up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, six SATA 6Gb/s slots, one M.2 and eight USB 3.1 ports, it is one of the most feature-rich B300 series motherboards on the market.

    Graphics Card: AMD Radeon RX 5700

    Price: Rs. 29,499 (Link)

    Base Clock1465MHz
    Boost Clock1725MHz
    Memory8GB GDDR6
    Bus Width256-Bit
    Recommended PSU550W

    AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 is the best graphics card for 1440p gaming. It beats NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 Super all the while costing less. You get 8GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit bus running at 14Gbps. Combine that with PCIe 4 support and a respectable power draw of 225W and you’ve got a winner.

    Memory: Adata XPG Gammix D30 16GB (8GBX2)

    Price: Rs. 5,399 (Link)

    Thanks to Intel’s monolithic design, we don’t need to opt for an expensive memory kit. Any dual-channel memory module will suffice. We’ll go with ADATA’s XPG Gammix D30 for this build.

    Storage Recommendation

    Power Supply: Corsair CX550

    Price: Rs. 4,475 (Link)

    The Corsair CX range is one of the best power supply units in the market. Offering bronze certification and a whole bunch of cables, it should be enough to power the 9400F and the RTX 2060. You could go for a modular PSU for a cleaner build but that’ll cost you.

    Cabinet: Thermaltake VERSA N27

    Price: Rs. 3,849 (Link)

    For this build, we’ll be opting for the Thermaltake Versa N27. It’s presently on sale for a discount of 700 bucks, making it a suitable pick.

    1. Hey i think i should spend a bit more on the gpu and go for an rtx 2060? Because 1) the blower on the amd card is trash plus 2) amd drivers suck?

    2. U mean a 2060 super? Because u could just get a non reference 5700 if u pay a bit more, which would be quite a bit better than a base 2060

    3. What about os? Whats use without os in a build. Include os cooling, kbd, mouse, monitor in next build. Without these its just a dead metal.

    4. Ok and GPU is good and all and do got pcie4
      But only when the rest is and too
      What’s the use of the moba don’t support pcie4

    5. Dude in which world you are leaving. Rx 5700 is far better than etc 2060. And fyi with better drivers optimization amd cards are performing way better in almost new games

    6. Bruh. That’s a pretty bad idea to go for an Intel instead of Ryzen. Do you care about getting 4-5 FPS more or having an option to get upgrades in the future for cheap that will allow you to use the same mobo for years with a more powerful CPU. Just get a Ryzen 5 3500 now and over time as you need more power let it be for streaming or video editing, just get a 3700X. Also for B450 motherboards get the AsRock PRO4 or the Tomahawk Max/A-Pro Max and just don’t ever get a single Gigabyte mobos cause they suck for B450.
      Alsp for RX5700 try not to cheap out and instead get a Sapphire Pulse and try to avoid the blower cards. Also you can bios flash a 5700 with a 5700XT bios to get 8-10 FPS more out of it.

    7. Also yeah Samsung 500GB is a pretty shitty choice. Just get a Crucial P1 Nvme SSD which you can find for cheaper but has 5-6 times higher read and write speeds.
      Also for SSD if you still want to go SATA go for MX500 which is same in performance to a SAMSUNG but way cheaper.

    8. Also forgot an important point that is if you go for a 9400F you will need a aftermarket cooler which will add another 3-4K to the budget. Go for AMD RYZEN 5 3500 or for more cores a 2600 and you will get a nice stock cooler on which you can overclock your CPU which isn’t even available on Intel. Also AMD B450 mobo that is AsRock PRO4 in particular has a better build quality and beefier VRM which make it last longer.

    9. Ryzen 5 3500 and a B450 Gigabyte is a much better choice than a 9400F. I honestly do not understand why anyone recommends the i5. The Ryzen is more powerful, efficient, and also has a better possible upgrade pattern. You can still fit a 3600 or 3700X even, if wanted later, on the same mobo. Intel is done, at every price point, AMD winds, Ryzen 1200, 3500, 3600, 3700X, 3900X, 3950X. Intel is in no way better than AMD at any price point right now. It is a clear win for AMD, please stop recommending Intel CPUs.

    10. Hey,

      I have gone through your article, and it offers lots of insight into choosing the best keyboard for gaming.

      I started a similar blog recently, and you are one of the few people who inspired me.
