With the prices of the PC components increasing more and more day by day, it is becoming very hard for people who are on a low budget, to build a gaming PC. Nobody knows when this is going to stop but if we are in an urgent need for a PC now we cannot sit and wait for a year for the prices to go down right? So we have to do with whatever is available within our reach. Here is another budget PC build that according to us is the Best Gaming PC Build Under Rs. 45000 ($500) for 2018.
Best Gaming PC Build Under Rs 45000 ($500) 2018
AMD Ryzen 3 1200
Price : Rs 7,600
Ryzen 3 1200 is one of the best budget friendly processors that is available in the market if not the best. The overclocking on this tiny processor is top notch. You can reach upto 4.0 ghz clock speeds with ease. The price to performance ratio is pretty good on this one. When overclocked it beats the i3 6100 and the i3 7100 easily. Plus this offers better multi tasking experience than the intel processors at this price point.
MSI A320M PRO-VD PLUS (AMD SOCKET AM4/DDR4-3200MHZ MEMORY)
Price : Rs 4,200
Pretty basic choice. Cheapest motherboard with AM4 socket available in the market. The good thing is despite being cheap it still supports memory speeds upto 3200 mhz giving you some extra amount of flexibility in the ram selection area.
CRUCIAL DESKTOP RAM (CT8G4DFD824A) – 8GB DDR4 2400MHz
Price : Rs 6,000
Because you need have minimum 8 gb of ram nowadays. You don’t have much of a choice here. And since we didn’t select a motherboard with overclocking capabilities, the 2400 mhz speed on this ram would really complement the Ryzen 3 1200 as the new gen processors when combined with fast ram gives more performance.
ASUS GTX 1060 3GB GDDR5 PHOENIX EDITION
Price : Rs 20,000
With games like Anthem and Far Cry 5 coming soon, getting a Gtx 1050 ti is not enough. You need a GTX 1060 minimum if you want to game at 1080p smoothly. You can go with the GTX 1050 ti if you want but we cannot recommend buying the 1050 ti in 2018. We tried to fit in the 6 gb variant of the GTX 1060 but we realized that our budget was increasing by a great margin. With that being said, The GTX 1060 3gb would do just fine. With a base clock speed of 1506 mhz and a Memory clock speed of 8008 mhz, this thing is still a beast when compared to the GTX 1050 ti and the AMD RX 470. You won’t have to worry about upgrading your PC anytime sooner.
WESTERN DIGITAL DESKTOP HARD DRIVE 1TB BLUE (WD10EZEX)
Price : Rs 3,000
This is not a high budget build so obviously we won’t include a SSD here. So we decided to go with a pretty basic 1 tb HDD. This HDD from Western Digital with speeds upto 7200 rpm fits really well in this build.
THERMALTAKE TR2 S SERIES 500 WATT 80 PLUS STANDARD CERTIFICATION
Price : Rs. 3,200
A pretty basic choice. 500 watts, 80 PLUS 230V Standard certified, single +12V rail design, warranty of 3 years and Thermaltake is a well known brand. So you can go with this PSU with your eyes closed. We have been using this PSU on one of our personal rigs for almost a year now.
ANTEC X1-T MID TOWER CABINET
Price : Rs. 2,200
We keep on saying that you should buy the cabinet that suits your preference because some pay attention to the aesthetics, some prefer better selection of ports, some prefer better cooling. So this more or less comes down to your personal choice. But we are still including a cabinet here since we had to. The X1-T from Antec is pretty good cabinet for such a low price.
