Best PC Build Under 100k (September 2020)
Having a big budget helps you a lot while building a new PC. But do you know that it is also a big problem? You might be asking how. The answer is simple, when your budget increases, you have more options to choose from. And, it could really be tough to make up your mind in those instances.
To tackle this issue, we have already researched on your behalf. And, we have gone ahead and made a list of the parts and components of the best PC build under 100K rupees. So, if you have a budget of 100,000 rupees for your next PC build, then this post is for you.
Without wasting more words, let’s jump right in…
CPU – AMD Ryzen 5 3600
This choice was very easy to make. At the moment, the CPU market is dominated by AMD. Even if you are an Intel fan, you must admit that AMD is winning the battle right now. So, we have gone with AMD. And, our top pick in the CPU department was the AMD Ryzen 5 3600. If you are a PC building enthusiast, you should be familiar with this one by now.
This is one of the most popular processors in the world right now because of its power and performance under both single-core and multi-core load. The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is a hexa-core CPU with 12 threads. It has a base clock speed of 2.6 GHz. And, the maximum boosted clock speed is up to 4.2 GHz. Moreover, you will love the huge 35 MB cache. Still, when it comes to power consumption, this one only needs 95 watts to operate.
It supports dual-channel RAM. Speaking of RAM, it is compatible with DDR4 RAM up to 3200 MHz bus-speed. This CPU is compatible with all the motherboards of AMD A300, A400, and A500 series chipsets as it comes with the AM4 socket. With the CPU, you will get an AMD Wraith Stealth fan. But, we would recommend using a 3rd party one. Interestingly, we will suggest you one in a bit in this post.
To make it clear, this is a CPU, not an APU. Thus, you will have to use a dedicated graphics card with this. If you look at the price to performance ratio of this processor, you will not find another one in this price range. Whether you will game or edit high definition videos, your workspace will be faster because of the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU.
- This CPU comes with 6 cores and 12 threads
- It comes with a 3 years warranty
- This one comes with an AMD Wraith Stealth heat sink fan
CPU Cooler – Deepcool
By default, the CPU we have chosen comes with a fan in the box. Of course, you can use that if you want to. However, if you want to keep everything tidy, you should use a 3rd party CPU cooler. And, in this case, we have picked the DeepCool Gammax CPU cooler.
It is totally compatible with our CPU and motherboard. One of the cool features of this is that it comes with an RGB fan. So, it will not only keep your CPU cool but also illuminate your system. For the price, this is a beast.

When it comes to the motherboard for the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 CPU, there are a lot of options to choose from. Now, we have chosen the popular GIGABYTE B550M DS3H motherboard. But why? The answer is simple. It has some of the best features in this price range.
First of all, it is compatible with our system. Next, it comes with a PCIe 4.0×16 slot. In addition, it also comes with both NVMe PCIe 4.0 and 3.0 M.2 connectors.

So there you have it a Gaming PC configuration for around Rs 100000 to handle all your gaming and multimedia work without blowing a hole in your pocket, well not a crater to be precise.
I haven’t included the cost of peripherals like monitor, speakers, keyboard-mouse etc so you can add that according to your preferences and budget.

Also for Windows keep aside around Rs 500 or so as you can get an OEM key easily for that much from many online stores and places to activate your free copy of Windows from Microsoft website.
From my side I’ve tried to keep everything in mind regarding this build but just in case I did forget something or you have a suggestion for the same then do drop a comment.
Points Kept in Mind
1) The configuration is aimed at high end gaming and not just at 1080p gaming so all the games should run comfortably at high to medium settings on resolutions over 1080p.
2) We are aiming for 144Hz gameplay aswell as VR Gaming so the system should pack enough horsepower to handle all of that for smooth gaming.

3) Upgrades should be easy for the chosen components and not mean changing multiple components just for the sake of one such as a processor.
4) The components not only should be compatible and not create a bottleneck for each other but also not be a bottleneck for other peripherals like a high resolution or high refresh rate monitor.
5) As we are using substantial amount of money here so the system should be more than capable of handling just gaming and should be able to do much more just in case required by the user.
