Hooray! You’ve got a moderately large amount of money to spend on what’s set to be a real, serious gaming PC build. At 70,000 rupees, you have considerable leeway to build a fairly powerful build. It’ll be able to handle just about anything you throw at it up to 1440p without breaking a sweat. It’ll also let you dabble in some 4K gaming if you’re feeling adventurous. Without further ado, here’s the best PC build under 70K INR for 1440p and 4K gaming.
Best Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 DS3H
Price: Rs. 6,450 (Link)
This is the motherboard I have in my personal build, and for good reason too: it’s a very solid value proposition. It’s one of the cheaper B450 boards on the market but Gigabyte didn’t skimp too much in terms of features. You get 4(!) RAM slots, all the I/O connectivity you need, including plenty of USB 3 slots, and even some basic RGB lighting on the board. As a B450 part, it also lets you overclock the Ryzen CPU beating at the heart of this build.
Best Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super
Price: Rs. 33,899 (Link)
AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 XT offers a moderate performance advantage relative to the NVIDIA RTX 2060 Super, but the vagaries of AMD’s Indian pricing strategy make it hard to recommend: Some OEMs are pricing the RX 5700 XT upwards of 40K, while the RTX 2060 Super can be had in the 35k range. For that much money, you get performance that’s basically on par with the RTX 2070, 8 gigs of VRAM, and adequate ray-tracing chops, especially with DLSS enabled. This means 60 FPS-plus in almost all games at 1440p, with the settings maxed out. Compared to the RTX 2070 Super, you’re getting 85-90 percent of the performance for some Rs. 10,000 less. Now 70,000 is a considerable amount for a build but that’s still a lot to account for.
Best Gaming CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Price: Rs. 17,098 (Link)
This year, Ryzen has made a much bigger splash than Navi. While Nvidia’s
Best Memory for the Ryzen 5 3600: 2×8 GB ADATA Premier DDR4 2666 MHz
Price: Rs. 6,920 (Link)
Do you know what else you can overclock on your B450 motherboard? Your DDR4 memory. Ryzen scales best at higher memory frequencies. Earlier-gen Ryzen 2000 CPUs had Infinity Fabric speeds tied into RAM speeds making fast RAM almost a necessity. While this isn’t the case with Ryzen 5 3600, performance still scales well with faster RAM. Unfortunately, that almost always means more expensive RAM. A simple solution is to buy cheaper 2666 MHz RAM modules and overclock them to 2933 MHz. While this isn’t a sure shot thing, it worked just fine for me and most mid-tier RAM modules can be pushed up at least one or two performance bins. Even if you leave RAM at stock, the other parts of this build are speedy enough that you might not notice the performance boost.
Storage: Kingston A400 480GB SSD
Price: Rs. 3,899 (Link)
I can’t emphasi
Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE 550
Price: Rs. 3,377 (Link)
This is again a personal recommendation. It’s the power supply I use in my own rig. At just a bit over ₹3,000, it’s fantastic value for an 80+ bronze-rated unit. 550w might not sound like much but it’s more than adequate to power the Ryzen 5 3600, and the RTX 2060 Super with overclocks on both. What’s not to like?
Case: Antec NX200 RGB
Price: Rs. 2,400 (Link)
This is a great example of shiny-cheap, that most special of value categories. The NX200 is not just a great-looking mid
All in all, we’re looking at a grand total of Rs. 74,073. If 70k is your budget, this might be a bit of a stretch. But trust us here, the extra Rs. 4000 is being put to very good use: What you have on your hands here is a solid performer at 1080p and 1440p that’ll also net you eminently playable framerates at 4K.
