We have been posting gaming PC builds for every conceivable budget from 20K to 2 Lakhs. If you’re looking to build a high-end gaming rig for 4K gaming but don’t have enough to fork out 2 Lakhs, we have got you covered. With minor compromises here and there, this build is as capable of gaming in 4K as the 2 Lakh PC build.
Best CPU for Gaming: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
- Price: Rs. 29,475 (Link)
- Cores/Threads: 8/16
- Base Clock: 3.6 GHz
- Boost Clock: 4.4 GHz
- Cache Size: 36 MB
- TDP: 65 Watt
The Ryzen 7 3700X is one of the best gaming CPUs around. While the 3600X performs on par with it in 1080p and 1440p, the 3700X pulls ahead in 4K performance. This is also the reason why we opted for this instead of the 9700K. With 8 cores and best-in-class multi-threaded performance, the 3700X offers unmatched value as compared to any other CPU on the market. Moreover, it also comes included with a Wraith Prism Cooler in the box that is more than sufficient for gaming workloads.
Recommended Motherboard: ASRock X570 TAICHI
- Price: Rs. 28,149 (Link)
- X570 Chipset
- Memory: 4x DDR4 Slots for up to 128GB
- I/O: 1x HDMI 1.4, 3x USB 3.2 Gen2 , 8x USB 3.2 Gen1
The ASRock X570 Taichi comes in at the top-end of the spectrum and is a great option for an enthusiast build. The chipset is actively cooled by a fan to keep the temps down. Also included are three PCIe 4.0 M.2 slots and support for up to DDR4-4666. With an excellent build quality, a beautiful aesthetic and no compromises on the features, if you’re looking to go all-out on your PC build, the ASRock Taichi is by far the best option. If you want to save some cash, you opt for the GIGABYTE X570 Aorus Pro WiFi for Rs. 21,789 as well.
The Best GPU for Gaming: NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super
- Price: Rs. 59,999 (Link)
- Cores: 3072
- Boost Clock: 1815 MHz
- Memory Clock: 1937 MHz
- Memory: 8GB GDDR6
The RTX 2080 Super is a great pick for 4K gaming. Second, only to the RTX 2080Ti, it can easily hold its own in demanding games even at 4K Ultra settings, offering more than 60 frames in most of them. While the 2080Ti is clearly superior, spending 25-30K INR more for an FPS boost of 10-15 doesn’t make much sense. However, if you do want to go all-out, check out our PC Build under 2 Lakh INR. For comparison, here are some benchmarks from PCMag.
As you can see from the benchmarks (Credits: PCMag), even in demanding games, the RTX 2080 Super easily hits 60 frames on Ultra Preset. Moreover, the RTX 2080Ti only offers an FPS boost of 7-10 frames in modern titles as compared to the 2080 Super.
Recommended Power Supply: Corsair RM850 80 Plus GOLD Fully-Modular
Price: Rs. 10,500 (Link)
The Corsair RM850 is an 80 Plus GOLD Certified Power Supply that is fully modular and pretty much silent in operation. It has a 135mm fan, 105 C rated capacitors, is extremely compact, has Zero RPM Mode and even a 10-year warranty. The RM850 is one of the best power supplies that on the market as of now and is good enough to use in a future build as well.
Recommended Memory: G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 3200MHz
Price: Rs. 9,499 (Link)
The G.Skill TridentZ RGB is 2X8GB DDR4 memory kit overclockable to 3600MHz when used with the Ryzen 3000 CPUs. G.Sill being one of the industry-leading memory manufacturers, the TridentZ is one of the best 16GB kits around. Moreover, it also features some of the sweetest looking RGB on a RAM stick.
Recommended Storage: Crucial P1 1TB NVMe SSD
- Price: Rs. 9,225
- Form Factor: M.2 2280
- Interface: PCI Express 3.0
- Seq. Read: 2000 MB/s
- Seq. Write: 1700 MB/s
The Crucial P1 offers 1 TB of space and a blistering write speed of 1700 MB/s. While this is only a PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD, it offers best-in-class performance and offers superior performance a SATA III SSD. If you absolutely need to have a PCIe 4.0 SSD, I’d suggest the GIGABYTE Aorus 1TB M.2 2280.
Recommended Case: Corsair Carbide SPEC-05
- Price: Rs. 2,900 (Link)
- Form Factor: Mid Tower
- Motherboard Support: ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX

- I/O Ports: 1 x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, 1x Headphone/Mic
- Drive Bays: 3 x 3.5-inch HDD, 2 x 2.5-inch SSD
The SPEC-05 is one of the most spacious mid-tower cases on the market and offers great thermal performance with reduced noise levels. While there’s a slight compromise on the acrylic panels instead of tempered glass, space for up to 5 fans and support for multiple options certainly makes up for it. The SPEC-05 is a simple, easy-to-build-in PC case and offers a great value for the price.
