Building a 50k ($600 to $700) exceptional performance Gaming RIG in 2020/2021 is the objective we have set for the article.

We will build 4 different PC configurations – 2 using the Intel Processors and 2 using the AMD Ryzen processors.  I have over 20 years of building gaming PCs so you can be sure that you will get excellent advice. 

Building First PC Can be Challenging – Things To Know

Building a gaming PC for the first time can be a very challenging task and to choose between the processors – whether to Buy an AMD or Intel or buying the best graphics card – AMD or Nvidia can be daunting.

Best Gaming PC

There are several permutations and combinations that you can have for building a gaming or video editing PC.

Another problem is reviews we find on all the tech sites like tech power-up, Toms hardware, or from Linus tech tips have one issue in common they consider the US pricing and not the Indian pricing. The advice they have sometimes is not correct due to the pricing difference.

Also, we must consider the brands that have good after-sales support in India so down the line can get replacements with ease.

PC Configuration Basics for Beginners

There are many combinations that 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.

For eg. I would not suggest someone buy an RTX 3080 with an Intel Core i3 processor. Or to buy 4 GB ram with a Core i7 processor – if we do that we will have a bottleneck component, which will reduce the performance of the entire Rig.

So it is essential to have all components maximize performance.

So we club a core i7 with an RTX 3080. And GTX 1650 with a Core i3 for best results and best utilization of our budget.

All the PC gaming Build in the article or on Candytech are based on two principles:

  1. Best Value for Money.
  2. Performance of Gaming PC as a whole for multiple tasks.

3) RAM – Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4 3000 (PC4-24000) C16 PC Memory (CMK8GX4M1D3000C16)

Price – ₹ 3000  

Corsair Vengeance LPX 8 GB PC memory

Preferably go with Corsair 8GB one of the best build quality components. This LPX module is built with a pure aluminum heat spreader for quick heat dissipation. It is available in multiple colors to match your other components.

The memory offers higher frequency, greater bandwidth, and lower power consumption. It is designed to fit even in a smaller place. 

The memory clock speed is 3000 MHz. The XMP 2.0 bears trouble-free automatic overclocking. 

Note* – Some of the boards may have support for only 2666 MHz of Ram speed. This will still work with those motherboards as well but at 2666 MHz.

We can also buy a 2666 MHz Ram for this build but the price difference is very low so instead, I will suggest buying this so in the future if you upgrade the motherboard can use it.

The alternate, Choice is to get the Colorful Battle AX 2666 MHz ram – 8 GB – Buy on Amazon.

Important: Four more Articles you should read before going ahead with Building a Gaming PC:

Concluding Thoughts – Gaming PC 50K

Most builds you will find online are either outdated or exclude the monitor when building a PC. But in my experience when we think of building the PC we need to also include the monitor to the budget.

I some months back created a Rig which had an online price of 83,000 and was able to source all parts online and assembled it myself.

Most local dealers don’t know much about PC builds they try to sell whatever they have and will say that this offers better performance than the other parts. Don’t buy that logic.

You can purchase all the parts online and ask some local dealer or computer service shop to fit it for you they usually charge around Rs. 150 to Rs. 250 for assembling the PC parts.

 These are the three great options you can explore or you can contact us for some personal feedback we will help you with building the best gaming Rig.
