    Gaming PC builds start to get interesting once you enter the Rs. 70,000 price range, as many doors, open up owing to a thicker budget. But, the coronavirus pandemic has seriously affected the prices of components, especially in GPU and CPU departments.

    With inflated prices owing to supply shortages thanks to the global pandemic, it’s likely that prices of some components on this list might be sky-high. For some fair play, I have considered the retail and the usual market price of the components for this build.

    So let’s get started!

    AMD Ryzen 5 3600

    AMD’s processors have gotten very good and are easily the go-to choice for laymen and enthusiasts alike. The Ryzen 5 3600 is a tried and tested 65W chip that’s been around for a while and increases the chances of you getting hold of it for a decent price that much more likely. The 6 core 12 thread processor is a good VFM choice for this build. However, keep in mind that overclocking headroom can be an issue.

    ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2060

    The RTX 2060 card with 6GB of onboard video memory clocking 14,000 MHz is one of the go-to GPUs in this price segment, especially after the market is corrected. It sits above the 1660s and 1660Tis with higher steam processors at 1920. The Turing architecture means it supports the latest Ray-tracing and AI-powered super-sampling.

    MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk

    Compatible with AMD’s B550 and Intel’s H470 and B460, this piece of mid-tier motherboard gets more than the job done. It’s an excellent choice for a gaming pc build under seventy grand. It sports 2 M.2 Slots and a Realtek RTL8125B chip for up to 2.5Gb/s internet speeds. It also features 6 USB ports with up to 10GBps throughput and 2 3.5mm jacks (front & rear). With a scattering of new as well as old tech support, MSI MAG B550 becomes a compelling buy.

    Corsair Vengeance LPX 2 x 8GB

    I prefer to go for a split set-up when it comes to RAM. I would take 2 sticks of memory instead of one. Talking about the Vengeance LPX, its a neat and simple looking DIMM, devoid of any RGB frills. But it more than makes up for it when it comes to performance. 15.45GB/s single-thread bandwidth figure stands to be the best and it scores handsomely well. This makes it a perfect fit for our gaming PC.

    Cooler Master MWE 750 Bronze V2

    For some juice, I will resort to the Cooler Master MWE 750 Bronze V2. The power supply unit here is on the higher side meaning it can give you some headroom for future upgrades. The 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency means that you get a claimed efficiency of around 85%. the 1200mm HDB fan, DC to DC circuit design and active power factor correction are some other features to look forward to.

    Ant Esports ICE-120AG Mid Tower Gaming Cabinet

    For housing all the above components in our gaming pc build, we are going for the Ant Esports ICE-120AG Mid Tower Gaming Cabinet. It’s a simple-looking cabinet, that’s not too expensive. The metallic finish and RGB panel upfront complete the exposed sides showing off your internals. Support for 120mm fans, dual GPUs, dedicated SSD mount, 3 caddies, easy cable management, magnetic dust protection and spacious compartments makes it our pic.

    This is where our budget technically ends and these are all the components you will need to get up and running. But I have taken the liberty to plonk in some peripheral suggestions that might come in handy.

    Acer Nitro 23.8-inch 165Hz Monitor

    The IPS panel on this monitor offers good viewing angles while serving up a decent 165Hz refresh rate. The FreeSync support and G-Sync compatibility saves it from screen tearing. For our viewing requirement of our gaming pc build, the Acer Nitro should be a good choice.

    Logitech G213 Prodigy Gaming Keyboard

    Getting mechanical keyboards for cheap is impossible but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a decent keyboard experience. The Logitech G213 is a perfect place to start off. It looks decent, has an extended palm rest and also comes loaded with RGB backlighting with regional cutomisation options.

    Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury

    The sturdy little gaming mouse again from the house of Logitech serves up a great deal of performance, especially for FPS lovers. The ergonomic design, custom-mappable buttons and low latency all work in favour of this pick. If at all, the mouse is a tad bit on the heavier side.
