I. Components Breakdown
1. AMD Ryzen 3 3300x ( and why not Intel? )
So I have to decided to go with AMD Ryzen 3 3300x for this build instead of some Intel i5-9400f or i3-10100 Processor.
So before you call me an AMD Fan boi, let me note down the points why I chose AMD Ryzen 3 3300x for this build
- Ryzen 3300x can be overclocked.
- Ryzen 3300x provides better price to performance.
- A Ryzen build shall always have better future upgrade options and a wide range of quality motherboards to chose from.
AMD Ryzen 3300x is based on the Zen 2 architecture as all Ryzen 3000 series are built upon. It comes with 4 cores and 8 threads with a base clock of 3.60GHz and Max Boost clock of 4.3GHz with a L3 cache of 16MB which provides high levels of performance.
The AMD Ryzen 3 3300x comes at price of around ₹ 11,900. Click here to get updated pricing
So the question arises, is it not good too chose i3-10100 instead which comes at slightly lower price point? Well, you can surely go for i3-10100 and save some bucks while getting close performance to Ryzen 3300x but there are other aspects to it. You will miss the Ryzen stock cooler which is a great cooler , future upgrades would be limited and you also miss the opportunity to overclock.
Final verdict, AMD Ryzen 3 3330x or Intel core i3-10100?
I would say, go with AMD Ryzen 3 3300x as AMD’s offerings are quite better than Intel and you will surely save money while choosing budget friendly AMD motherboards
2. NVDIA GeForce GTX 1660: Perfect Graphics Card for this budget
What use of a Gaming PC of this budget which doesn’t have a dedicated graphics card? Also you can’t skip a graphics card because nowadays to cut CPU cost, CPUs are being shipped without igpu so mainly all Ryzen CPUs will need a dedicated graphics card for display unless its a Ryzen APU.
Check out our Ryzen APU Build over here.
According to me, NVIDIA GTX 1660 would be a perfect choice for this budget build. AMD’s offerings at this price are not that great as performance and Power Usage wise so its better to stick with NVIDIA this time.
As Nvidia’s RTX 3000 series has already been launched, we are seeing some cut down in NVIDIA’s GPU Prices and we will be taking that to our advantage in this build.
My brand preference here would be Galax. Galax has been in the Indian market for a long time now and has been constantly providing great NVIDIA Graphics Cards at the best price to Indian consumers. Coming with a three years warranty and at a retail price of around ₹ 17,500, there is no better choice than GALAX GTX 1660 1-Click Oc at that price point.
Here are some other GPU Manufacturing brands to look at in the Indian Market
Inno3D GTX 1660 Twin X2 – Check Price
Zotac GTX 1660 Twin Fan – Check Price
MSI GTX 1660 Ventus XS OC – Check Price
As this is a Ryzen Gaming PC Build, we will be going with a decent budget friendly B450 Motherboard here. There are plenty of options when it comes to B450 Motherboards in the Indian Market for this budget PC Buid.
Here I have decided to go with MSI B450M Pro VDH MAX. There is nothing extra ordinary in this motherboard. It’s a pretty decent micro-atx motherboard coming at price range of around ₹ 7500 to ₹ 7800, supporting AMD Ryzen 1st, 2nd and 3rd gen out of the box with memory frequency upto 3466+(OC) MHz and is right enough for this build.
There are two more decent options which you can look for and both of them offer good value for money
ASROCK B450 Pro4: Check Price
Galax B450M AMD Motherboard: Check Pricing
*Though Galax is pretty new in the Indian market to offer latest motherboards, their offerings for budget builds is really great and has that value for money tagline to it
4. 8GB or 16GB RAM?
8GB of RAM might be the sweet spot for most users but due to the general agreement between gamers that ” 16GB of RAM is necessary for a build in 2020″, truth is there is practically very less difference in performance when upgrading from 8GB to 16GB in mostly all games. However after saving some bucks on Graphics Card, and due the recent drop in prices for Memory sticks, we can squeeze in 16GB of RAM into this build.
Here I will be suggesting two sticks of GSkill Ripjaws V 8GB 3000MHz DDR4 RAM for future proofing. However you are free to choose any other brands like Corsair and ADATA.
Ram’s prices change frequently so I can’t give you an exact pricing on the RAM sticks but you can Click here to get an updated pricing.
For storage I would suggest you to go with a 500GB Sata SSD rather than going for a combination of traditional Hard Drives and small capacity SSD which could sometimes be a bottleneck for the system at this price point. However you can add a 1TB HDD later on if you feel storage constraint.
Crucial MX500 500GB would be my choice for this budget build, coming at a price of around ₹ 5,500 at the time of writing.

6. Gaming Case or Cabinet ( Plenty of options to choose from)
Cabinet for a gaming PC are usually a personal choice that best attracts you. However, beautiful attractive cabinets are not always the best performing cabinets in the market. While choosing a cabinet within the budget of ₹ 3000 to ₹ 4000 one must surely give some priority to Airflow over looks.
Here are my suggestions based on the looks and money one would be willing to spend on it

Corsair Carbide Spec 05 Mid-Tower: Check Pricing
Gamdias Talos E2 Mid-Towe: Check Pricing
7. Power Supply or PSU to run your beast
In this build we are going to be using a 550 Watt 80+ White Power Supply. Power Supplies can sometimes be tedious to chose as there are so many brands selling power supplies at different prices. Don’t mind me but we Indians are so easily carried away with price while choosing a Power Supply we don’t consider the quality, rating, brand value and also the fact that the entire life of our components depends on that single power supply we choose.
Here, I would highly recommend you to go with Cooler Master’s MWE550 80+ White Certified Power Supply which provides excellent performance and reliability for a power supply at a price point of around ₹ 3,400.
It comes with an awesome 3 years warranty from Cooler Master and flat cables at this price point.
