3 Best Gaming PC configuration under Rs 40000 India

The second build here uses the Intel’s Pentium Edition processor which need over-clocking to reach its full potential. If you are a first time PC buyer or don’t want to take the risk of over-clocking you must buy the build 1 or build 3 and skip this build.

In this build we are using the Intel Pentium G3258 CPU Review: Haswell, Unlocked, the processor which can be overclocked upto incredibly high clock of 4.5Ghz or even more with the right cooler. You can buy it from Amazon.in was not available on Flipkart at the time of writing the article.

  • Dual Core
  • 3.20 GHz clock speed
  • 3 MB cache memory
  • Intel HD Graphics 1.1 GHz, 1.7 MB.
  • LGA 1150 socket 

For cooling this beast you will require an aftermarket cooler the best and the cheapest option is Cooler Master Hyper 101 Cooler which is priced at Rs. 1000 and can be used to clock it 4.0 Ghz and above. I would suggest you do proper CPU stress testing (prime 95) and then further overclock after finding stable overclock.

Sapphire AMD/ATI Dual-X R9 270X 2GB Graphics Card is the addition here versus the R7 265 in the previous build and this will give you an edge in the gaming performance Vs a 265. You can expect 5-10 fps more with the overclocked processor and a 270X  Vs the previous build.

R9 270X offers better performance compared to GTX 660

For the motherboard, you will have to choose the boards which allow overclocking, this is one of the cheapest boards from ASUS (ASUS H81M-K Motherboard (Over clocking Needs Bios Update)). I found which can help overclock the G3258. You can further read here on non-Z version of boards, which can be overclocked using the Bios here is an article from techpower up.

Here is a video comparing a G3258 overclocked to 4.5 Ghz compared with an i7 powered by GTX 760

 3 Best Gaming PC configuration under Rs 40000 India 

3rd PC Gaming Build Using Intel Processor and Gigabyte Mother Board – slightly expensive but best among the 3 builds

The last build is the best considering we are using a Core i3 4130 which matches a FX 6300 in the gaming performance and may lag it in some multi threaded applications. We are also using the R9 270X which offers better performance compared to the R7 -265. If you don’t plan to over clock and want best value for money this is the build for you.

Lastly some readers may want to use AMD processor but currently I will suggest to go with an Intel build for simple reason if you plan to change the processor and buy a core i5 or i7 you can do the same without changing your board while AM3+ high end processors like FX9590 are not that great when compared to an core i7 or even a core i5.

The giga byte board in this build supports – Intel 4th Generation Core i3 Processor, Intel Celeron Processor, Intel 4th Generation Core i7 Processor, Intel Xeon Processor, Intel 4th Generation Core i5 Processor, Intel Pentium Processor. You can easily upgrade as required in future.

 Here are also some bench marks for the R9 270X and GTX 660 which you can also use in the build. Interestingly if you can get a cheap Nvidia GTX 660 for 12,000 it will offer much better performance compared to a 265 you can swap that in the build 1. You can expect a R7 265 to lag a little compared to Nvidia GTX 660.

I have not taken any graphics card from Nvidia for these builds the Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 is based on the old kepler architecture and the Nvidia 750ti which is based on the maxwell first generations is also not as good as a R7 265.

I would most likely to suggest it to gamers who don’t want a bigger power supply and want to use the energy efficient Nvidia card. Most likely we will add it to a Rs. 35000 gaming build. Also some of the builds here may have crossed the 40,000 budget but i guess you guys can easily found that much discount online or from retailers to bring price down the 40,000 mark.

Also if you are going with AMD build you can do 2 more changes to make it even better with slightly higher budget – Add a 600 Watt PSU and a R9 270X that will cost around 3-4k additional but will boost performance by at least 5-10 fps in all gaming titles.  Thanks do let me know in comments which is the best build according to you or any suggestions. If you want to check out the best gaming laptop in India currently here is a Lenovo Y50 powered by GTX 860M for you.

    • We update the article often and this article too has been updated several times. So no worry about being old. Price fluctuates so keep a watch. For wifi u can either buy an ethernet cable to connect to router or buy a motherboard with wifi or buy a wifi pci card. Cheapest is connecting using ethernet cable.
