Best Gaming PC Configuration under Rs 80000

I get a lot of questions every now and then regarding Gaming PC configurations and out of the lot I've observed that a Gaming PC configuration under Rs 80,000 is what most of you want and look for. So to make things easier for you aswell as for me to some extent today I'll be posting a Gaming PC configuration for under Rs 80K which will sail you across easily for the next year and a half atleast before asking for a major upgrade, mostly in the graphics card division. Before compiling this configuration I've kept a few key points in mind which I would like to enlist first -
  • The build should be future proof and should last the user for over a year or two without any upgrade.
  • It should run all the existing and upcoming titles at 1080p resolution with respectable settings.
  • Upgrade should be easy and economical with minimum change of components.
  • It should be balanced over all with all the components in sync & at par without overpowering or under-powering others.

Quite basic points but worth mentioning for easy understanding of what I'm about to write down next.

CPU - Intel Core i5-8400 Rs 15,200

For this build I recommend the Intel Core i5 8400 processor which is part of Intel's latest Coffee Lake family and is the first i5 ever to have six cores over the usual four cores. Being a hexacore processor this is more than you would need to game today or anytime in future making it a future proof product to go with which would handle gaming and even semi professional video editing and rendering with ease. Base frequency is 2.8Ghz and can go all the way upto 4Ghz with the stock cooler that it comes out of the box with so no complaints there aswell.

Motherboard - MSI Z370-A Pro Rs 11,000

The MSI Z370-A Pro is cheap on price but has everything that one needs for a PC like this, supporting the latest 8th Gen Intel CPUs the motherboard supports memory of upto 4000Mhz and has a metal reinforced PCIe slot for heavy graphics card and durability. Not only it supports a M.2 SSD in case you plan to buy one in future but also ahs onboard Realtek ALC892 audio CODEC supporting upto 7.1 channel audio making it best suited for listening to music and playing games with precision.  

RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 2400Mhz Rs 12,000

Today for gaming 8GB is the bare minimum that you should have in your PC for playing games at respectable setting or else it creates a huge bottleneck even if you’ve got everything else in place! For that matter we’ll be using the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 2400Mhz memory kit which constitutes of two 8GB DDR4 stick so you get two RAM sticks working in dual channel for superior performance. 2400Mhz is the sweet spot for gaming and with the Vengeance its possible at a great pricing offering you good looks and a very stable memory kit which is trusted by everyone in the PC industry alike.

Graphics Card - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 Windforce OC 6GB Rs 24,300

A GTX 1060 6GB is what you need to justify a build of this kind and I recommend the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060  Windforce OC 6GB for this purpose. Its an OC version of the GTX 1060 so you get higher clock speeds out of the box and can increase it further more if required by the click of a button through their provided software utility and all would be under their 3 years warranty period! This card would seamlessly allow you to lpay any title at 1080p or higher resolutions on a 144Hz display aswell, do keep in mind to buy the 6GB edition and not the 3GB one since that would be a waste of your money.

SSD - Kingston A400 240GB Rs 6,700

Yeah you obviously need a SSD for faster Windows boot up time and quick loading in games or else you’ll be stuck loading multi gigabyte games over a conventional mechanical hard drive. The Kingston A400 256GB would do the job here as the SSD offers superior performance than SSDs that cost almost double the price for which it comes at! Great after market sale support for Kingston is always there and 256GB would be more than enough for Windows, your vital softwares and games so pick this up without any second thoughts here.

HDD - Seagate Barracuda 2TB Rs 5,100

Since we are building a PC it is quite obvious that you would be watching movies and listening to music aswell along with downloading a bunch of other stuff from the internet so we need a HDD here for which we’ll go with the Seagate Barracuda for its long line of trusted quality and service that it offers at a very reasonable price along with 2 years of warranty. The 2TB HDD spins at 7200RPM so you won’t feel it slowing down or spoiling your experience even if you play a multi-GB BluRay rip over your monitor or TV due to slow load/buffer time.

PSU - Cooler Master MasterWatt Lite 500 Rs 3,300

For almost around 3K the MasterWatt Lite from Cooler Master 500 is a great option for a 500W PSU which is enough to keep a configuration like this running safely and for long. It is 80 Plus EU certified and delivers 85% efficiency which is great for your system aswell as for your pocket. With a 120mm smart fan the unit not only runs cool but also generates less noise so you won't have to worry about anythjing as such plus it comes with a three years warranty to keep you covered.

Case - Cooler Master Masterbox Lite 5 RGB Case Rs 5000


Not only this case is priced perfectly but comes with the tempered glass front panel and three RGB fans that ca not only be controlled in terms of colors but also in behavior patterns making it the ideal choice. The case has three RGB fans in the front and a non LED fan at the back right of the box with extra support for a liquid cooler in the front if desired. Lots of space for big components inside makes it great for air flow so you'll hvae you  hardware running all cool and quiet.

Now this is what I think is the best Gaming PC configuration for around Rs 80K but if you think that I've missed upon something or you have suggestions for improvement or even queries regarding the same then feel free to drop a comment below
