Build a PC For Gaming AND Productivity under INR 75000

With the launch of RTX 2060, mid-tier gaming is once again alive and kicking. With no new hardware launches soon, it’s a great time to put together the dream PC you have been waiting for. When it comes to picking up the ‘right’ components, the task seems similar to finding a needle in a haystack (or an assassin). Well, anyway, here’s Gaming Monk’s PC build recommendation for a budget of 75k.

Processor

Ryzen 5 2600 – INR 16290

For the processor, we have chosen the red team’s Ryzen 5 2600, clocked at 3.9 GHz. 2600 is a well-balanced CPU. It has 6 cores and 12 threads and delivers great value for money. When compared to i5 8400, Ryzen trails ‘a bit’ behind in the FPS segment. However, when it comes to productivity, those extra 6 threads pay off well.

Motherboard

MSI B450M PRO-VDH – INR 6600

To fit this chip, we have chosen MSI’s B450-Pro VDH motherboard. This motherboard has a B450 chipset which supports overclocking and has all the features that you’ll need, including a steel plated PCI slot to support your beefy card that we’ll talk about in a while.

Memory

Corsair Vengeance 8 GB DDR4 (3000 Mhz) x 2 – INR 9598

For memory, we have chosen two Corsair Vengeance 8 GB DDR4 (3000 Mhz) sticks. Ryzen CPUs greatly benefit from higher memory speeds two 3000 Mhz Ram sticks will help us extract every bit of performance from our 2600.

Graphics Card

RTX 2060 (FE) – INR 31000

For GPU we have gone with Nvidia’s mid-tier flagship, RTX 2060 (FE) priced at Rs.31000. The GPU delivers better performance then the past generation’s 1070 and is enough to take down any game at 1080p or even 1440p. It also comes with Nvidia’s new “Ray Tracing” and Tensor Cores which will help you enjoy the eye candy of real-life reflections and shadows in exchange of FPS (until Nvidia addresses the FPS loss somehow.) Anyway, the GPU delivers great performance for its price, when the comparatively slower 1070 is priced at 35k.

Power Supply

Corsair CX 650 – INR 5400

To power up our system we have chosen Corsair’s CX 650 power supply. The PSU is 80 plus bronze certified ensuring a reliable supply to your beloved components. That extra wattage provides us enough headroom to overclock these parts for that ‘extra’ FPS when you really need it.

Storage

Kingston 120gb sata ssd – inr 1800
WD Blue 1TB 7200rpm hdd – INR 2975

As far as storage is concerned, no modern PC is complete without a SSD. So we’ll go with a Kingston 120GB SATA SSD for booting up. For your games, movies and other stuff, you can put that in a WD Blue 1TB 7200 RPM HDD.

CASE

Circle CC 819 Black – INR 2600

And finally, we have chosen Circle’s CC819 Case for you to put your components. It is a decent looking case and has enough room and airflow space to keep your rig cool while you knock your enemy’s head off or render that youtube video.

The total for cost for this build runs up to INR 76,263 which is a little over our inital INR 75,000 budget, but spending those few extra bucks make sure that we get a rig that can take care of everything we can throw at it.
