If you are a graphic designer or a gamer and plan to build a PC for running your heavy-duty games and software, you’re at the right place. Building a PC is always a better choice if you are not willing to pay to brands that come with some insane specifications with the ready-made PCs. However, they are not cost-effective and come with higher price tags.
In this article, I’m going to help you with the best cost-effective PC building, which gets your work done under Rs. 60,000. The PC configurations might not be top-notch, but its sufficient enough to play games and render your Adobe videos at a better speed. So here’s what you need to build your PC.
Components You Need For Your PC?
Processor: The most important and crucial thing you need to purchase to build your PC is a processor. Earlier, Intel dominated the market, but now you also have AMD chipsets from which you can choose. Intel might be the priority for many users as it’s a well-established and trusted brand, but we recommend you to go for AMD processors. The reason for choosing AMD is performance and pricing. We don’t care which brand is old or new; our main motive is to get a good performing processor which is capable enough of getting your work done.
You can go for the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor, which comes with 6 Cores and 12 Threads. The AMD processor is based clock at 3.6 GHz, and you can also overclock the processor up to 4.2GHz. It has a 35MB Cache with AM4 Socket. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 comes with a price point of Rs. 17,733.
Motherboard: Next on the list is the Motherboard which is the core ingredient for your PC. Make a note to always go for a good Motherboard, which comes with a future upgradeable feature. These motherboards will allow you to upgrade your PC if something new arrives. Suppose you want to upgrade the processor, then you need not have to change the entire board.
Here we are not going to compromise on the budget and suggest the GIGABYTE B450 Gaming X motherboard, a Gaming Motherboard with Hybrid Digital PWM, NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2, RGB Fusion 2.0. With this Motherboard, you’re going to ensure long-lasting life for your PC as this one comes with all the latest technology slots, including four RAM slots, SSD slots, and a lot more.
The Gigabyte B450 Gaming X also supports up to AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen chipset along with ultra-fast NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2. It comes with a price tag of Rs. 11,800.
RAM: We are done with two primary components of the PC, and now it’s time to decide which RAM is good for your PC. You might have seen some beautiful RAMs that come with RGB lightings, but they cost you more than a regular RAM stick. Here our main priority is to build a PC with the best configuration and performance in the budget, so I recommend you not to waste your money on RGB RAM stick because it works the same.
You can go with a Corsair 16 GB Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz C16 XMP 2.0, which is sufficient for your PC’s smooth flow. With 16GB RAM, you won’t witness any lag or difficulty while exporting your heavy-duty video files. The Corsair 16GB RAM will cost your Rs. 6,200, which is a good deal for RAM. You can also go for 32GB, which will cost you Rs. 14,410, but we recommend you go for the 16GB RAM, which is enough for your processing.
SSD: Storage plays a vital role in a PC, and with the innovation of SDDs, the transferring and performance are also taken care of the SDDs. To make your PC more powerful and for smoother performance, you can equip your PC with an SSD that will take responsibility for the operating system. SSD can work separately as a boot device for a more seamless performance. SSDs are always better than HDDs.
You can purchase the CRUCIAL P1 500GB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD, which goes directly into the M.2 slot. It comes with reading and writing speeds of up to 2000MB/s and 1700MB/s, respectively. It also comes with a Crucial 5-year limited warranty. For this SSD, you have to invest Rs. 6,292.
Hard Drive: For better storage, you should go for a high-end HDD, which comes with a good capacity. Of course, if you are using this PC for graphic or video editing, then you must be requiring a storage device to store your data. Here I recommend you to go for a Seagate Barracuda 2 TB Internal Hard Drive HDD with 5400 RPM speed, SATA 6.0 Gb/s, and 6 gigabytes per second data transfer rate.
The 2TB HDD will be enough for your PC for storing data, besides you can also upgrade the storage in the future if you are running out of storage. The Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD will cost you around Rs. 4,999.
Graphics Card: If you’re planning to use this PC for both editing work and gaming, then you need to equip it with a graphic card that will divide the pressure of the processor and maintain the balance for better processing.
We recommend you go with the Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition ZT-P10510B-10L 4GB PCI Express Graphics Card, which is one of the best picks if you are planning to build a PC in the budget segment. It comes with 768 CUDA cores, 4GB GDDR5, 128-bit Memory Bus, dual-fan cooling, and dual-slot. For this, you need to pay Rs. 11,399.
CPU Cabinet And SMPS: We are done with the major components now, you have to purchase a mid-tower cabinet according to your choice. For mid-tower cabinet, you can choose Antec NX 310 Mid Tower Gaming Cabinet, which comes with ATX, Micro-ATX, ITX with ARGB Control Button with 1 x 120mm ARGB LED Fan in Front & 1 x 120mm Regular Fan in Rear Preinstalled. This one will cost you Rs. 4,009 on Amazon India.
Next is the power supply for which you can choose any brand, but do remember that it gives an output of 650W. It will cost you around Rs 1,000.
