PC Building has become very common these days. PC builders are building unique gaming rigs which were never seen before, there are tons of videos on YouTube about that. But beginners face issues while building a gaming PC and they are confused about which parts should be used in the build. The most common segment of PC building is under 40k. Most of the pc enthusiast and gamers wants a gaming PC build under Rs. 40,000.
Building a gaming PC under Rs. 40,000 is kind of tough as you will have to choose all the components wisely and if the prices are high or if there is any kind of shortage in the market then you will have to buy the components at a higher price point. So choosing all the components wisely is important but the other important thing is that you should also buy the parts at the right time. If you are on a strict budget then you should keep an eye on the prices of components and when you find them falling down then you can purchase them.
We would suggest you build your PC offline as that way you may also get some discount and you’ll find that the prices are less as compared to the online marketplace. But if you live in a rural area or remote place then you are left with no other option rather than buying the components online from Amazon, Flipkart, MDcomputers, Vedant computers, etc.
Below, we have suggested a gaming PC build under rs 40,000 in India, have a look.
Gaming PC Build Under Rs. 40,000: Components & Pricing
This is the best PC build you can have under rs. 40,000 as we have done a lot of research finding these components. This gaming rig can easily achieve all the games in 1080p on 60 FPS, some games can even go to 1440p 60 FPS such as GTA V. This rig can run all the games in high or ultra settings which struggling a lot.
- Processor: Intel Core i3-9100F
- Price: 6,150
The first component on which the whole PC build-depends is the processor. In this gaming rig, we have chosen the Intel Core i3-9100F which comes at a price point of 6,150. This processor has 4 cores and 4 threads that can be less sometimes but keeping the price bracket in mind we also have to add a GPU in this build, so we are only left with this option. This processor can be boosted up to 4.2 GHz and this does have integrated graphics, so you will require a discrete graphics card which we will be adding in the build later. This processor is compatible with Intel 300 series chipset motherboards and the socket of this processor is LGA 1151.
An alternative for Intel Core i3-9100F would be this only if you can extend your budget.
- Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3500X
- Price: 13,000
The AMD Ryzen 5 3500X is an alternative to the Intel Core i3-9100F but there are a very high price gap and performance gap between these two processors. It is a 6 core and 6 thread processor and the clock speed can be boosted up to 4.1 GHz. It is an unlocked CPU and has an AM4 socket and it is based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture.
- Motherboard: ASRock B450-HDV
- Price: 5,200
The motherboard we are using in this build is the ASRock B450-HDV and it has an AM4 socket and this motherboard also supports overclocking so you can overclock your CPU whenever required. It is an entry-level motherboard and you can also upgrade to 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs whenever needed.
- Motherboard: H310M Pro-VH Plus
- It is again a great alternative to the above one and it has LGA 1151 socket. This is just another option for the build if you don’t find the motherboard given above.
- Graphics Card: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1650 Super
- Price: 16,000
When it comes to GPU then we have chosen the NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1650 Super and it is one of the best Graphics Card Under Rs. 20,000. However, we would suggest you get it under 13k as that would be the most justified price for this card. This card is equipped with 1280 CUDA cores and has 4 GB of GDDR6 memory and has a 128-bit memory bus. You can easily play all the modern games on 1080p 60 FPS. However, a 75 Hz monitor would be the best option to have with this GPU. One more thing you should have on the monitor is G Sync or FreeSync to get the immersive experience.
- RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 8 GB 3000 mAH
- Price: 4,000
For RAM, we have decided to install an 8GB 3000 mAH stick from Corsair, which works pretty well. If you get some other good option you can freely pick it up.
- PSU: Thermaltake Lite power 450
- Price: 2,300
When it comes to the PSU then we have chosen Thermaltake Lite Power 450 watt PSU. This PSU has a lot of positive reviews and according to our build’s power usage, this is just fine. This PSU has a minimum rating of 80+ and it fits perfectly in the budget. Also, try to get this in the above-mentioned budget as well. As we have seen it getting sold for too high prices which are not at all justified.
- Cabinet: Antec NX230 Mid-Tower Case
- Price: 3,000
The Antec NX230 Mid-Tower Case is one of the most popular and the best cabinet from Antec. It is good in build quality as well as it has all the ports and slots for storage and connectivity. It also has tempered glass on one of its sides. And this cabinet has 3 fans mounted on it. However, there are a lot of other options from Antec and from other brands as well which you can go for.
- Storage: Seagate Barracuda Q1 240GB SSD
- Price: 2,499
For storage, we have gone for Seagate Barracuda Q1 240GB SSD which is a SATA and if you are getting some other good options in this price range then you can definitely go for them. Also, we haven’t added HDD in this budget as that was not possible. Also, you can add the HDD later, as it is quite important for storing games.
And that is our Gaming PC build under rs. 40,000. Also, it is always good to extend your budget to be future proof and what I recommend is to go for a gaming or editing PC build under 60,000 which is not possible for everyone, so 50K is the sweet spot.
So this was all about Gaming PC Build Under Rs. 40,000. Hopefully, you will like our approach.
