Best Gaming PC Build Under ₹80,000: February 2020

- Advertisement -

With newer parts launching in every month, we aim to keep our readers informed for every PC Build of all budgets and resolutions. As the title suggests, we’ll be listing parts of a gaming PC for roughly ₹80,000 with this article. This PC build is suitable for playing games at 60fps in Quad HD (1440p). Without any further ado, let’s jump right into it.

Parts For PC Build Under ₹80,000:

CPU – AMD Ryzen 5 3600

build cpu

After a one-click activation OC in Ryzen Master, the Ryzen 5 3600 offers about the same performance as the 3600X, but for ₹2,500 less. It also comes with a very capable stock cooler and has features from higher-end processors like Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT, the AMD equivalent of Hyper-Threading), which makes AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 the king of value.

Motherboard – MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX

The B450 Tomahawk MAX offers great value and a solid foundation to build upon. It is one of the best in terms of power consumption and delivery, where it is one of the best. As with all other MAX motherboards from MSI, it will be compatible with the Ryzen 3000 series processors out of the box. If you don’t mind spending a couple of extra minutes updating the BIOS using the USB Flashback though, you should be able to save a few bucks by opting for the non-MAX Tomahawk. You can also opt for the MSI B450 PRO-VDH MAX if you would like to save some more.

Memory – G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB(2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz CL16

We opted to go for the most affordable dual-channel 3200MHz CL16 kit we could find in this build since Ryzen CPUs tend to get a significant bump in performance with faster memory. Remember to “overclock” the memory to run at its advertised speed of 3200 MHz, though, or it will run at the JEDEC default of 2133 MHz. Depending on your motherboard, the memory overclock may be called DOCP (Direct Overclock Profile), EOCP (Extended Overclock Profiles), or XMP (eXtreme Memory Profile).

Storage – Crucial MX500 500 GB SSD and WD Caviar Blue 1 TB 7200RPM HDD

The MX500 is one of the best SSDs out there for its price, and a 500 GB variant should let you store plenty of your games along with your OS on it. The WD Blue will serve as our mass storage, to make sure you don’t run out of space for your games. Since the primary purpose of this build is to game, we picked a SATA SSD as while an NVMe SSD will certainly be faster, it is unlikely to offer any tangible benefits to you. The loading times for most games, and boot times for Windows, remain largely the same whether you use the recommended Crucial MX500 or a more expensive NVMe drive. If you have to deal with large media files and have the extra money, an NVMe drive is definitely a good upgrade

Video Card – PowerColor Red Dragon RX 5700 OC 8GB

The 5700 is without a doubt the best card at this price point with superior performance than the 2060 but a similar price. The loss of ray tracing doesn’t really hurt because of the limited amount of titles with support for it (at least for now). We chose the PowerColor version for this build because it is the most affordable one with a good cooling solution. You can opt for Sapphire variants too, but try to steer clear from ones by other board partners, especially ASUS, because of issues with their coolers.

Case – Corsair 100R

Cases are very subjective, so feel free to choose any case that you like as long as it fits the build’s components in. I will be choosing the Corsair 100R though, because of its low price, sleek looks and ease to build in.

Power Supply – Corsair CX550

build psu

The CX550 is certified 80+ Bronze, has a warranty of 5 years and includes black braided cables. There are cheaper options available, but I personally would not recommend most of them, as it is important to get a good power supply for the lifetime of your PC components.

  1. Should be using a better psu for this build as amd graphics cards are quite a bit power hungry, it will also improve the overall efficiency of the system.

    • The 5700 has a TDP of 180W, and the power consumption of this entire build falls around 350W, a PSU rated at being able to deliver 550W is more than enough. You could choose a PSU with better efficiency if you have the extra money, but the differences will be minimal.

  2. Hey Hi! I saw you recommended a MX500 which is a really good Sata SSD giving speeds around 500MB/s, but as Tomahawk Max has one m.2 slot it can take it NVMe SSD like a Intel 660p or Crucial P1, which are both fantastic speedy drives giving around 2000MB/s almost 4X the performance at literally a marginal increase in price like roughly 1k more. So why Sata SSD and not NVMe SSD?

    • Since the primary purpose of this build is to game, we picked a SATA SSD as while an NVMe SSD will certainly be faster, it is unlikely to offer any tangible benefits to you.

  3. Bro,
    It barely affects the game start time
    Bss ek hi cheez bdiya hai that’s
    With this speed u could save your most precious 2-3 min of life
    ????
    Nothing much

  4. Love this content you make. Just wanted to suggest that it would be awesome if you actually give us a number on fps with the build on popular titles like Csgo, Dota 2 and rater r games like tomb raider with max setting as it will really help. Whichever way love the guide. Thanks

  5. TDP is not power consumption, it is heat generated by the component. You dont even know what you are talking about. Go learn something about PCs then do all this useless posts.

    • While TDP is not power consumption, it is often used as a basic indicator of it. If you look up the power consumption of the 3600 for example, you will find that according to most benchmarks, it will consume about 70 watts, which is roughly equal to its TDP. The reason for this is, that most of the electricity consumed by the CPU, is converted to heat. So roughly speaking, the amount of electricity consumed is equal to the amount of heat dissipated by the CPU(I say roughly because there are other factors involved, making it a little higher). This doesn’t work as well for Intel CPUs though, as their marketed TDPs tend to be calculated under “real world” conditions rather than under a stress test.

  6. The price which is shown dosent match with the links like there is a complete spike
    The actual build might cost 90k rather than 80k as mentioned above

  7. Hi Gourang,

    Thanks for this article. Really helps. I want to build an office PC with data crunching capabilties (tableau) and light photoshop and tons of apps and browser windows open.

    For games, will buy an xbox.

    Can i build the above system without the graphics card?
