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 / Threads||Base Clock||Boost Clock||L3 Cache||TDP||PCIe Lanes||Memory Support|
|6/6||2.9GHz||4.1GHz||9MB||65W||PCIe 3.0 x 16||Dual 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)
|CPU||8th and 9th Gen Intel Core|
|Memory||4x DD4 up to 64GB @ 2666MHz|
|Storage||6x SATA 6Gb/s, 1x M.2|
|Expansion Slots||1x PCIe 3.0 x16|
2x PCIe 3.0 x1
|USB||8x 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)
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.
- SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB
- Price: Rs. 6,499
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.
