Things are expensive because of the chip shortage, so you need to keep in mind that, prices will go up and down for some time.
By the way, I have recently built a gaming PC for myself, so I thought, let me just share the same with you all because building a gaming PC will take hall lot of time.
Now let’s build your dream gaming PC…
GPU is the heart of gaming PC and that’s the reason why we’re spending half of our money on GPU, we will adjust our money depending on the use case.
If you want you can also get AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT but here, we will use the Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti because it’s a bit faster.
The Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti can run the majority of AAA games at more than 120fps at 1080p resolution.
Which includes games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, DOOM Eternal, Hitman 2, Resident Evil 3, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, Horizon Zero Dawn, and even Cyberpunk 2077.
As I have told you, the price will go up and down, so if you’re not getting Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti at a reasonable price then you can also go with AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT.
- 2nd Gen Ray Tracing Cores,
- 3rd Gen Tensor Cores
- 8GB 256-bit GDDR6
- IceStorm 2.0 Advanced Cooling
- 8K Ready,
- 4 Display Ready
- Boost Clock 1695 MHz
- 4 x DisplayPort 1.4a, 1 x HDMI 2.1, DirectX 12 Ultimate, Vulkan RT API, OpenGL 4.6
We have already spent half our money on GPU, so now we have to spend wisely,
The Intel Core i5 12400F 12 generation is a new processor from Intel at an affordable price and yet it provides all performance we need for powerful gaming.
The chipset supports both DDR4 and DDR5 based on motherboard compatibility. Here, We used DDR4 compatible motherboard to keep our build within the budget.
- 10 nm manufacturing process
- 6 cores and 12 threads
- 18 MB cache memory
- Up to 4.4 GHz maximum clock speed
- Supports DDR4 (3200 MHz) and DDR5 (4800 MHz) RAM
- Warranty – 3 years
Motherboard: MSI PRO B660M-E DDR4
The MSI PRO B660M-E DDR4 Motherboard is designed for an Intel 12th gen processor, so there won’t be an issue.
There are also four RAM slots and two M.2 SSD slots, so if there is a need to expand memory then you do it.
In short, for the price it comes, it offers value and again, we have to keep our budget around 1 lakh too.
- LGA 1700, 12th Gen Core ready
- Dual-channel DDR4 architecture support
- Up to 64 GB of SDRAM18 MB cache memory
- GEN3 M.2 SSD STORAGE
- PASSIVE & AI COOLING
- 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, 4K/60Hz HDMI 2.1 & VGA, and 7.1 HD Audio
SSD and HDD
For the hard drive, we have gone with Seagate Barracuda 2 TB. Now, if you have money then you can only use SSD but if you don’t want to spend more than Rs 1 Lakh then having HDD will come in handy.
We also need faster storage and for that, we have the Crucial P5 Plus 500GB, here you can install windows or install any other software you need and you will get faster speed.
Just like GPU, CPU, and even storage, we also need superfast RAM and for that, we’re using G-SKILL Trident Z Royal 16GB DDR4 RAM.
It will ensure that we will have a superfast gaming experience. Also, there won’t be any kind of issue in day-to-day tasks like using a browser, office, or any other software.
Considering the price tag, this is the best we can get.
Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE 650 Bronze V2
With everything running, we have to keep our PC cool and that’s why we’re using the Cooler Master MWE 650 Bronze V2. It will make sure everything runs smoothly and it’s also available at a good price too.
Overall, this is the best you can get but if you want then you always spend more money.
Cabinet: DEEPCOOL MATREXX 55 MESH
This is where you can get creative, if you don’t like what I have selected then you can always go through Amazon and find the perfect one as per your preference.
Now, if you ask me, the DEEPCOOL MATREXX 55 MESH looks amazing as well as, it is also available at a reasonable price too.
Monitor: BenQ MOBIUZ EX3210R
This is optional because if we buy this gaming monitor then our budget will go up to Rs 1.5 Lakh. I have just shared, what I’m using it.
You don’t have to spend 40k on a gaming monitor, you can get any other or use the one you have at home.
By the way, the BenQ MOBIUZ EX3210R comes with a 31.5-inches 2k display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and a 165Hz refresh rate, by the way, this is a curved VA panel.
It has a 1ms response time which is great for games, and that 165Hz refresh rate will help a lot while playing games and even while using monitors in day-to-day life.
As I have said, the price won’t stay the same forever, so make sure you check the current price on Amazon, I have also provided the link for everything for your convenience.
By the way, I have calculated everything and the overall cost of this gaming build is around Rs 101880. It’s a bit over Rs 1 Lakh but again it’s too much.
Still, if you’re confused then feel free to comment, see you there…
