If you are looking forward to building a Gaming, Streaming, or Video Editing PC for any budget, you are at the right place.
In this article, we have explained how you can build a PC for a budget of Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 200,000 in 2021.
We have built many Custom Rigs in the last 20 years and with all that experience have suggested some of the best gaming Rigs in articles on Candytech.in. We explored all the components and reviewed them here on Candytech.
The gaming PC builds which we have recommended below are based on one principle – Best Value for Money.
Pre-built Branded PC Vs Assembled PC
I would suggest you go ahead and assemble a PC over a Branded Pre-build PC for 2 major reasons:
- Lower Cost
Assembling a Gaming PC can be a tricky task and you need to balance out your budget in a way that you don’t spend heavily on one single part like CPU or GPU and has little left for motherboard and RAM.
I have been asked by many Gamers in earlier articles that can they use a GT 750 or 250X with a Core i5 or buy an AMD 260X with a Core i7 these combinations shouldn’t be used as the overall gaming performance will be dependent upon both the CPU and GPU. Nothing wrong with using them but on the same budget, you can get better performance just by choosing the right parts.
Motherboards – Gamers usually tend to buy the cheapest motherboard that is available to cut costs, but it is good to understand the motherboard specs and your processor and graphics card to make the best use of your selection.
Monitor – This is a very important aspect and often ignored, the output of your great PC Hardware is shown on your monitor, and what you actually experience is what is displayed on the monitor screen. It is important to understand whether you should buy a 2560*1440 or 1920*1080 or 1366*768 monitor with your chosen graphics card. We will discuss this in detail later.
Graphics Card VRAM – Should you buy a 2 GB or 4G version of the graphics card and does the VRAM matter at the resolution you are gaming you can explore more on How Much VRAM is required By Graphics Card to play modern Gaming PC titles.
Games – PC games have evolved over a period of time, current generation games like Assassin’s Creed Rogue or Unity or GTA 5 are made with the intent that buyers can play them at varying resolutions. The size of the PC Games has enormously increased to have detailed open worlds to be rendered on a 4k or 2K monitor. Some of the games are well optimized for PC while others have issues like Assassin’s Creed Unity or watchdogs.
Other Hardware Components – In the below mentioned Gaming PC builds we have listed down the best components which fit in the budget and make the PC Builds Balanced from both the Performance as well as the price perspective. We have chosen carefully RAM speed, size, Cabinet, Hard drive size, SMPS(power supply) for adequately running the graphics card and processor.
Gaming PC Build: Assemble Your PC
Let’s Begin with the Entry-level Gaming PC Build for Budget Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 35,000($450). We will add up another Gaming PC build under Rs. 30,000 or 25,000 for entry-level users.
It was one of the most difficult builds for us due to the budget constraint. Here are the two Best Gaming PC Builds in this price range, which you can take full advantage of while deciding on your Gaming PC Configuration.

Gaming PC Build Assemble Your PC – Rs. 50,000 to 55,000
With Rs. 50,000 budget we move to the mainstream budget Gaming PC build. These are exciting times for the Gamers as the prices of graphics card got somewhat corrected after Nvidia launched the GTX 970 and GTX 980 the graphics card in the range of 10-15k also got corrected by a little amount in India. The graphics cards are still expensive in the Indian market compared to the US market by a margin of 20% or more. The issue of purchase from the US and getting the graphics card in India is a warranty issue that can be a deterrent to US purchases by Indian buyers.
Now coming to the Gaming PC Build for Rs. 50,000 – You can get the below-Mentioned configuration: In this build, we are using one of the best graphics cards for Rs. 15,000 – AMD R9 270X. The AMD R9-270X is a great graphics card that performs better than the old power horse GTX 660 and almost reaches the Nvidia Gtx 760. We are using here the Intel Core i3 processor because of the strict budget constraint you can also use the core i5 Intel processor in the same gaming pc build.

Summary Gaming PC Build Rs. 65,000
This is one of my favorite Gaming PC build configurations with 8 Core AMD FX 8350 and mighty GTX 770, GTX 770 reaches/exceeds the performance of the old GTX 680 and beats the AMD R9 -280X easily. The GTX 770 runs cooler and consumes much lesser power compared to some of the AMD graphics cards.
The AMD FX 8350 almost reaches the performance of the Intel Core i5 3570 and will not bottleneck in any of the game. The MSI 970A-G46 Motherboard motherboard allows you to do overclocking if that is what you wish and desire using an aftermarket cooler.

In this rig we will use the Best Components that can be bought for a High-End Gaming PC build. We have used the newly launched maxwell based GTX 970 which is a cracker of a graphics card and has made AMD drop down the prices of its R9-290X and R9-280X. Even if an R9-290X is available for 27-28K, preferably you should go for Nvidia GTX 970. The major two reasons for choosing a GTX 970 over a 290X barring performance are the low Power supply requirement and thermal efficiency that Nvidia GTX 970 offers.
We are using the cooler master K281 cabinet which has adequate size and effective cable management and fits the GTX 970 well.
Moving to the High-END Gaming PC build which is all you need to max out the most graphics-intensive games we reach the budget of Rs. 80,000 to Rs. 85,000. You can read detailed information about this Gaming PC Rig in the Article – 4 Best Gaming PC Configuration Under Rs 75000.

Moving to the last build which we are adding a better Monitor though with 1080p resolution but a 23 inch very low response time and Asus extreme edition motherboard.
