Building a decent gaming PC in India under budget restraints is quite the herculean task. With taxes and crazy import duties being a PC aficionado this far East is quite an expensive hobby. Nevertheless, we here are TechQuila
Best Gaming CPU: Intel Core i5-9400F
Price: Rs. 11,600 (Link)
Intel’s CPU prices have dropped by a notch ever since the Ryzen 3000 parts hit retail. The 9th Gen Core i5-9400F has come down to 12K INR, making it the ideal processor for this sub-60K PC build. It is faster than every other AMD Ryzen chip in this price range when it comes to gaming and the six-cores provide enough oomph to run the heaviest of workloads. Till the newer Ryzen 5 3500 CPU hits the market, we’ll stick to the Core i5-9400F. Shouldn’t be long now though.
Best Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060
Price: Rs. 25,799 (Link)
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 is at an all-time low of 25.8K INR, making RTX more affordable than ever before. The ASUS RTX 2060 Phoenix is selling for slightly less but I’d suggest going with the Colorful or the Inno3D variant as they feature much better thermal solutions.
Best Motherboard for the Intel Core i5-9400F: Asus ROG Strix B365-G
Price: Rs. 8,660 (Link)
The ASUS ROG Strix B365-G is one of the cheaper ROG boards but still retains most of the premium components that the brand is known for. Sure, you don’t get any of the fancy RGB or an extra-large chipset heatsink, but the design and build quality of this mobo
Best RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GBx 2
Price: Rs. 6,920 (Link)
G.Skill’s Ripjaws V memory kit brings high-speed RAM to the masses. Easily overclockable to up to 3400MHz, it’s the ideal pick for not only Ryzen but Intel processors as well.

Power-supply: Corsair CX550
Price: Rs. 4,450 (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 for this 60K gaming build. You could go for a modular PSU for a cleaner build but that’ll cost you.
Cabinet: Antec Dark Phantom DP501
Price: Rs. 4,500 (Link)
The Antec Dark Phantom DP501 is a beautiful case featuring RGB lighting and a tempered side panel. The price tag of 4.6K is all too enticing to avoid this mid-tower case.
