It is relatively easy to choose components and build a gaming RIG for a 5oK plus budget but as we keep lowering the budget it becomes relatively difficult.
Choosing the parts and building a PC in this range needs much more precision as the budget is a constraint and it becomes difficult to get the high FPS with low priced hardware. We will attempt to create the best PC configuration which can maximize gaming and overall performance of the RIG.
There are many combinations which you can buy when it comes to PC components. But the best configuration is that which optimizes a PC performance as a whole and give the best possible experience.
Fitting together the right GPU and CPU is essential and all other components should as well augment the key parts to increase the performance as a whole. Will try to avoid expensive components in this build or spend on any one component more as it will impact the overall build quality.
Please pardon me for any price changes in the PC components. Here is another article for you if you want a Gaming PC for Rs. 50000.
All the PC gaming Build in the article or on candytech.in are based on two principles:
- Best Value for Money
- Best utilization of budget in Hand so overall rig gives excellent performance
3 Best Gaming PC configuration under Rs 40000 India
About the Build– For the first build we would be using an AMD processor FX-6300 which offers good processing power coupled with over clocking potential. The second build is Intel based and it is meant for advanced users as the Processor and motherboard used is required to over clock only then you will get the benefit of the RIG’s full potential.
For all 1st time buyers I would suggest to go ahead with the AMD build or the core i 3 build but if you want more performance from the money spent be my guest to try the 2nd build with Intel G- 3258. You will get approx 5-10 FPS more in almost all titles with this Intel build.
The third build is slightly expensive and use an Intel Architecture and does not require much on user part and will offer equivalent/better performance to the AMD build.
