How To Get Best Gaming PC Assembled Under Rs. 80,000

The year 2017 has been one of the best years ever in recent times for the video game industry. With not only some of the best and most anticipated gaming titles coming out but also in terms of PC hardware wars soaring to new heights. AMD rolling out the revolutionary Ryzen CPUs countered, well to some extent, by Intel Coffee Lake.

The Graphics division wasn’t too different after all with AMD Vega entering the arena to challenge Nvidia Pascal cards supremacy in the main stream segment.

In short if you are an avid or even casual gamer who is planning to build a new PC or upgrade his old and loyal gaming buddy then this is the best time to do all that, not only will you be able to play the latest titles but also prepare yourself for the impressive titles that are bound to release in the first quarter of 2018.

Considering all the trends and stats it’s safe to assume that Rs 80,000 is what you will have to shell out for a brand new gaming PC which will sail you across easily for the next two to three years 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 –


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

Key Points For This Build

  • 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.

CPU Intel Core I5-8400CPU – Intel Core I5-8400 

The latest offering from Intel in form of the Coffee Lake will be used since this build is primarily for gaming and not anything else for which the Intel i5 8400 does the work smoothly.

This six core or hexacore processor comes with a base frequency of 2.8Ghz which can top out at 4Ghz boost on all cores when needed and since it’s a six core CPU you won’t need anything more than that for gaming anyways making it quite future proof even for two to three years to come. As a bonus it comes with the Intel Stock cooler so you don’t need to shell out any extra for an aftermarket cooler.

Outside Of List

ASUS VP228H 21.5 Inch Gaming LED MonitorMonitor – ASUS VP228H- 21.5 Inch Gaming LED 

Now since we are building a gaming PC we need a monitor that looks good with thin bezel and also has to the point specifications. The Asus VP228H is not only a 21.5’ full HD monitor but also has just 1ms of response time!

This makes it not only a great choice for watching videos, movies, images, surfing web and all that but also for gaming since we have a very low response time for ultra fast gaming experience especially if you play a lot of FPS games or are crazy about CS:GO. For around 10K this is the best the market has to offer right now.


So there you have it a Gaming PC configuration for Rs 80,000 to handle all your gaming and multimedia work without blowing a hole in your pocket, well not a big one to be precise.

I haven’t included the cost of a peripherals like speakers, keyboard and gaming mouse so you can add that according to your preferences and budget. For headphones go with SteelSeries Siberia P100 with Mic.

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.
