We have already worked on the best gaming PC builds in last few articles where we used a higher budget of Rs. 40,000 and above.In this gaming pc build, we will attempt to set up a good performance Gaming Rig under Rs 30000 for 2016. As we keep lowering the budget it becomes relatively difficult to choose the best components.
Choosing the parts and building a PC in this range needs much more rigour as budget is big constraint and it becomes difficult to get high frames per second with low priced hardware. We attempt to create the 3 Best Gaming PC configuration under Rs 30000 which will maximize in gaming and overall performance for doing other tasks like video editing, watching movies and general use.
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 to buyer.
Fitting together the right GPU and CPU is essential and other components should as well augment the key parts to increase the performance. We will try to balance out the budget for right motherboard, Processor and Graphics Card.

Gaming PC Configuration 1 Under Rs 30000
PC Configuration – The first build here we would be using the Intel processor Intel 3.0 GHz LGA 1150 G-3220. The processor is 64 Bit and based on 22 Nm Lithography and is Haswell based current generation. It has 2 Cores and 2 Threads with 3 MB cache and supports 32 GB memory (1333 MHz Clock speed). Reason for not picking up a core i3 Haswell is simple we will overshoot the budget if we use it. We will like to spend more on the graphics card to make it a truly exhilarating Gaming PC.

RAM – Transcend DDR3-1333 DDR3 4 GB PC DRAM – We will use the 1333 Mhz Ram here which is compatible with the motherboard and processor. You can add another 4GB stick later on if you wish to expand the RAM though 4GB is good for all gaming and processing requirements. The Transcend RAM comes with a 5 years domestic warranty.
Hard Disk – Seagate Barracuda 1 TB Desktop Internal Hard Drive– We thought a lot to save some money and add a 500GB hard drive in this build but again that is just Rs. 500 cheaper than the 1 TB version. Current generation games like GTA 5 , GTA 4 , Assassin’s Creed , Far Cry 4 , Crysis 3 and HD and Blu Ray movies occupy a lot of space so 1 TB is bare minimum we need today.
Power Supply – Cooler Master Thunder 500 Watts PSU – This is ideal to support all the power requirements for the processor, motherboard, and GPU we need. Also the Graphics card we have chosen needs a 500 watt PSU so this is the minimum power supply we need for optimal performance.
Motherboard – Gigabyte GA-H81M-S1 Motherboard Rev ver 2.0 – It is basic motherboard with all the good features and has support for adding a Graphics card and RAM upto 16 GB. Look for the version 1.0 or later when buying it confirm with the seller. Supports Intel Haswell processors Core i3 , Core i5 Core i7 which you can upgrade later.

Graphics Card – The Heart of the Gaming Rig – Sapphire AMD/ATI R7 250X 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card – In the first build we have added the Sapphire AMD R7 250X which is the best budget card for Rs. 8,000.
The graphics card has Core clock of 950 Mhz and requires a 500 Watt minimum power supply. It has 640 Stream processors almost double compared to a R7 250. It sports 1 GB GDDR5 Memory with the memory bandwidth of Up to 72 GB/s. The PCI –E 3.0 Bus standard is required for connecting to the motherboard. It supports Microsoft DirectX 12.
