r/IndianGaming’s 80K PC Build guide – Gaming & Productivity (Intel/AMD Ryzen builds)

Categories PC builds

First things first:

  1. Please go through the whole post to have a better understanding of part selection.
  2. You are free to make any changes but please do your own research. Remember that these components are selected to work together without any compatibility issues, keeping upgradability in mind.
  3. The builds may cross the 80k mark, as we do not want to compromise on the quality of the components. Spending 2k extra over 1.5L budget is better than saving a little money now and then regretting later on.
  4. The lowest prices were taken from Amazon, Flipkart, Mdcomputers, Vedantcomputers, primeagbg, itdepot at the time of posting (23/07/18). No links will be added because prices keep fluctuating and stock availability may be an issue with a particular retailer.
  5. These builds do not include a monitor, keyboard/mouse and speakers in the budget.
  6. Prices can fluctuate wildly online and offline due to supply-demand forces.
  7. Please make sure you double-check the product specifications from the manufacturer’s website and the online retailers. Product name and specs can be wrongly listed on a retailer’s website.
  8. Do not forget to check out offline stores. Offline stores offer same or lower prices because they are saving on shipping charges, which are passed on to you unless online retailers are running exclusive deals/promos. This may not always be the case, but money saved is money earned. If you are from Mumbai, get yourself to Lamington Road. Likewise, if you are from Delhi, go check out Nehru place. Find the Lamington road or Nehru Place equivalent in your city. There is a good chance you will find what you need.
  9. Price of Windows OS is not considered because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. However, you are free to use unactivated windows.
