    Best PC Build Under Rs. 30,000 for 1080p Gaming (2019)

    - Advertisement -

    We have already covered the entry-level, mid-range and high-end PC builds required to game at various resolutions. This time we’ll focus on the absolute cheapest gaming PC you can build, under 30,000 INR and still get reasonable performance. We’ll be aiming for 60 FPS at the medium-high graphics preset in the latest games at t1080p.

    Best Budget CPU for Gaming: Intel Core i3-9100F

    Price: Rs. 6,610 (Link)

    If you were based out of the Americas or Europe I’d straight away recommend the 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs, but this is India where electronics are straight-up overpriced and older hardware rarely gets price drops even as newer, much faster parts are released to replace them. The Intel Core i3-9100F is a quad-core CPU that runs at an impressive 4.20GHz which should help sustain higher frame rates in gaming.

    Best Budget Graphics Card for 1080p Gaming: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB

    Price: Rs. 10,799 (Link)

    At launch, the GeForce GTX 1650 turned out to be rather useless considering that the older Polaris based Radeon RX 570 performed better while costing less. However, as the latter is now disappearing from the market to make way for the Navi 14 GPUs, the cheaper 1650s have all of a sudden become viable for entry-level rigs.

    Alternate Graphics Card: AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB

    Price: Rs. 12,300 (Link)

    If you don’t want to go with the lower-end Turing card, the Radeon RX 570 4GB is a GPU worth looking at. Although, it may not be available for the same rock bottom prices as before, at 12K INR it’s still very competitive.

    Best Motherboard for Core i3-9100F: Asus Prime H310M

    Price: Rs. 4,500 (Link)

    The ASUS Prime H310M is one of the cheapest Coffee Lake compatible motherboards, but considering that we’re opting for an i3 that can’t be overclocked, it’s the ideal option. It comes with two DDR4 RAM DIMMs, one PCIe x16 lane and two SATA slots. You won’t be getting any M.2 slots here, but that’s nothing unexpected.

    Best RAM for Core i3-9100F: Adata XPG Gammix D30 8GB DDR4

    Price: Rs. 2,900 (Link)

    Intel’s Coffee Lake chips aren’t that sensitive to memory so we’ll be opting for an 8GB 2666MHz stick. Regardless, as the mobo doesn’t support higher frequencies, it’s pointless to go for expensive models. You can easily add a second 8GB DIMM later on for dual-channel support but for now, you should be fine. The memory won’t be the bottlenecking factor in this build anyway, so don’t sweat it.

    Recommended PSU: Cooler Master MWE 450 230V

    Price: ₹2,485 (Link)

    Cooler Master’s MWE 450W retails for Rs. 2,485, making it the perfect fit for our ultrabudget PC build under 30,000. It’s really compact and is made of premium quality components that CM is known for. Yes, it’s not modular but for 2.5K what did you expect?

    PC Case: Antec VSK 4000B

    Price: Rs. 2,200 (Link)

    At this budget, we’ll have to accept the fact that a fancy cabinet is out of reach. Sure, you can upgrade later on but at the moment we’ll have to forgo all those shiny tempered glass panels and RGB lighting. The Antec VSK 4000B costs just over two thousand but still doesn’t look like trash. Possibly the best low-end PC cabinet.

    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB

    Price: Rs. 2,900 (Link)

    As we’re nearing our budget constraint of 30K, we’ll have to skimp on the storage and go for an entry-level 500GB Seagate HDD. For the time being, this should serve you well. Later on, you can add more drives and potentially an SSD for booting.

    What do you think of this build? We’d love to hear your opinions. Constructive feedback is always welcome!
