60K INR is actually a pretty sweet spot in gaming when you consider that your gaming rig will be able to power through almost any game with utmost ease. It is quite a decent budget and with a 60K build, I don’t see where someone could go wrong. So let’s start off with the CPU:

CPU- Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor 14.1 K


This CPU has been budget gamers’ quite trusty CPU for a while now and though it is quite old, it still holds up to most of the games this generation and will continue to do so for some years to come. This is not an overclockable CPU, but gives you enough horsepower without doing so.

Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-H81M-H Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard


This motherboard does not have all flexibility you’ll want, but will suit most of the needs of a gamer in this budget range. 2 RAM slots with a support of a maximum capacity of 16 GB running at 1600 MHz or below is quite decent. No SLi or Crossfire support, which is a bit of a bummer, but well you won’t be using multiple GPUs at this budget. So overall this motherboard packs quite a punch, but will allow little flexibility.

GPU- Zotac Nvidia GTX 960- 16.5K


The GTX 960 is probably one of the most value for cards around and can run pretty much anything you throw at it, with desirable settings and frame rates. With the GTX 1060 out we may see a decrease in the pricing of the GTX 960, which will be all the more better for the gamers. It will probably be a sort of long term investment, because this card will be able to run games smoothly for another 3-4 years.

RAM- G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600


For the RAM I went with the G Skill X Series series, and dual sticks at that because it was simply the best value for money RAM I could find on the market. Two sticks of RAM are always better than single sticks and running at a frequency of 1600 MHz makes it a steal for the price. The motherboard has only 2 slots, so that will be a bit of an issue, but well 8 GB is here to stay for a while now.

Storage- WD 1TB Caviar Blue 1 TB- 3.5K INR


Just like the prvious build I went for the WD hard drive because it offers reliability at a very cheap price and 1 TB is more than enough to store your games and anything extra that you’ll be doing on your PC.

Cabinet- Circle Gaming Cabinet CC 820– 3.1K INR


I had used this for the previous build and I will be using it for this build as well. This cabinet is aesthetically basic and does not look very appealing, but the interior gets the job done with decent ventilation and space. With 3 expansion slots, decent space and a nice set of USB ports, it is one of the most value for money PC cabinets out there and for as low as about 2500 INR, it is probably the best in the range. If you are a creative person and don’t mind spending a bit more on your PC, you could mod the case to your taste without much trouble.

PSU- EVGA 600B 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply


Powering this whole rig, is the EVGA PSU. 600W is probably an overkill for the rig. You can do away with a 500-550W power supply, but well this gives you room for future upgrades if you want to ever change the GPU or the CPU. It’s not modular, but well for the budget, the power supply is quite a good deal.

Just like the previous 35K build, these are Amazon prices and you can get the PC for a tad bit less if you are to buy from the local market. I’ve not included the LAN cards and the optical drives because;

i) WLAN cards are very cheap these days and any basic LAN card will do.

ii) Optical Drives are obsolete (And cheap as well). If you’ll be buying games from Steam there’s no point of a CD Drive. And anyways, these days with the release of humongous patches, you’ll be required to download GBs and GBs of data, for which Steam would be better.

iii) Also we have not considered the cost of an OS, which retails for around 5-6K. Going strictly with PC parts, this build is done well within the budget. The corners you could cut would be the cabinet, but make sure that you get a well ventilated one.

This PC will give you a very good performance on 1080p and will be able to run many games on 2K resolution. The GTX 960 is a pretty good card and when paired with the i5-4440, it will give you almost max settings in most games with 40-50 FPS. It is quite to an extent future proof, and will run most games for another 4-5 years. Do let us know your thoughts on the build and let us know the budget you’d like to see. Any and all queries are welcome. Adios amigos.
