Building a Gaming PC is exciting, but it can be hard to select parts your build which fits your budget. Here we’ve got some Gaming PC Builds around 50,000 INR saving you the hassle of selecting parts – I’ve also talked about the selected components in detail and have provided performance benchmarks for every build.
Note – Prices are not constant and can change, make sure to search on different websites to get the best price.
Let’s talk about the different main components and why I chose them in this build, and also recommended upgrades on some components if you’re willing to spend more money.
Processor (CPU) – Ryzen 3 1200
The Ryzen 3 1200 is one of the best budget gaming CPUs on the market even after the release of 8th generation Coffee Lake CPUs. It has a great upgrade path and AMD promises full support up to 2020 for its AM4 Platform with just mandatory BIOS updates (they’re simple enough to do). It has 4 cores, 4 threads and is clocked at 3.1GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz.
But you shouldn’t be using the CPU at stock speeds. The Ryzen 3 1200 is an excellent overclocker and can be overclocked to 4.0GHz on STOCK cooling as proved by Ponchato on YouTube. Here is an overclocking guide for the Ryzen 3 1200 – try to reach 3.5GHz-3.7GHz levels and be careful. In the end, it’s well worth the time.
The Intel Core i3 8100 8th gen CPU costs the same but the B360 Motherboards needed for them is more expensive, moreover comparing the Core i3 8100 against the Ryzen 3 1300X we see only a 7% difference in performance which isn’t going to impact gaming performance that much. Comparision to the R3 1300X is done because the R3 1200 can easily overclock to 1300X levels, as discussed above.
Recommended Upgrade – Ryzen 5 2600. Priced at 15300 INR, this CPU is way better for productivity as it has 6 cores and 12 threads compared to 4 cores and 4 threads of the R3 1300X.
Graphics Card (GPU) – GTX 1060 3GB
The GTX 1060 is the best mid-range GPU, period. There’s not much to say here, it’s absolutely perfect for this build and it won’t bottleneck the Ryzen 3 1300X. If you’re wondering why I didn’t use an AMD Card, it’s because the competitor RX 480/580 GPUs are way better at mining as compared to the GTX 1060 and they’re currently at very high prices because of high demand by miners.
We’re using the MSI GTX 1060 3GT OCV2 Variant which has a little bit of factory overclock – Base Clock is set at 1544MHz while the Boost Clock is 1759MHz.
Recommended Upgrade – GTX 1060 6GB. Priced around 26,500 INR, it has twice the memory and is more futureproof.
Motherboard (MOBO) – ASUS PRIME B350M-K
This is one of the best budget Ryzen Motherboards out there, and also the most inexpensive B350 Motherboard currently. It supports 3200MHz RAM with ease and you can attempt to overclock the 2400MHz RAM present in this build to higher frequencies (try the XMP option) on this motherboard. People have been able to get sweet overclocks on this as well.
Case – Phanteks ECLIPSE P300 Black
The Phanteks ECLIPSE P300 is the best mid-range case you can buy. Great build quality, performance, airflow, good cable management options and also phenomenal looks with that Tempered Glass Side Panel it has. It’s a Full ATX case so it also supports upgrades.
If you require more storage, you can upgrade the HDD to a 2TB one by adding another 1000 INR. The PSU used is adequate even for a GTX 1070. I’m personally using the VP500PC with my RX 480 and have even mined for days with it, but I have not at all encountered any hiccups or problems with the PSU. It’s a great budget option.
The RAM used is 2400MHz is a bit on the low side but you should be able to overclock it to around 3000MHz levels using XMP on the motherboard. But if you’d like to spend more and get 3200MHz RAM, go ahead.
To stick under the budget, we haven’t included a Solid State Drive (SSD). But if you can extra money it’s defeinitely well worth the money as your OS and programs would load much faster. I recommend saving up and getting a Samsung 860 Evo 250GB SSD (priced at 6200 INR) as it’s one of the best budget SSDs as reviewed by TechRadar – you can spend less and get a SanDisk/WD Blue/Kingston 120GB SSD but the price/performance for the 860 Evo is way better.
So that was the build – let’s move on to the benchmarks.
Firstly, Far Cry 5. This is one of the most beautiful games and it came out recently too.
The build manages High to Ultra Settings easily on 1080p, with an average of 70FPS and minimum of 55FPS. Very impressive!
Benchmark Credits go to Santiago Santiago. on YouTube. He’s using pretty much the same build with his RAM overclocked to 2933MHz from 2400MHz using XMP and an overclocked Ryzen 3 1200. Very similar results will be present on this Gaming PC Build.
All tests were done on 1080p Full HD (1920×1080). Here are some other major popular games tested, you can watch the full video for more benchmarks. Figures have been rounded off a bit.
Graphics Settings – Medium to High (AA & View Distance at Ultra)
This is the best Gaming PC Build we could come up with for 50,000 INR in India. It manages to run recent AAA titles with ease on high settings, giving more than 60 FPS on them. Be sure to search around more for specific PC parts as you could probably save even more. Leave down a comment if you have any queries.
Update 1 (2nd May 2018, 10PM IST) – Changed CPU and Mobo from R3 1300X + A320M to R3 1200 + B350M as R3 1200 can be OC’d to 1300X levels while the B350 offers futureproofing. Changed from Gigabyte WindForce GTX 1060 3GB to MSI GTX 1060 3GT OC as it’s more affordable, and changed case from MasterBox Lite 3.1 mATX to Phanteks ECLIPSE P300 Black as price savings allow for a way better case while still maintaining a price of under 50,000 INR. Thanks to the people who made these suggestions.
