Parts for PC under Rs 40k

CPU

AMD Ryzen 3 3100

Ryzen 3 3100 is one of the best budget CPU in the market. It’s based on the 7nm Zen 3 Architecture with 4 cores and 8 threads (no SMT support) and boosts to 3.9 GHz.

Its great IPC (Instructions per Clock) along with a relatively low TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 65W and a well-performing in-box cooler makes it a great budget CPU in the market for gaming.

Many of you might say, that a Ryzen 5 is a better option, but as this build is gaming focussed, the Ryzen 3 3100 is equally good when you pair it with a good GPU like that of the 1650 Super.

Most high-end games currently require 4 cores, so there’s no need to spend the extra bucks, for a Ryzen 5, unless you really need those extra cores

MOTHERBOARD 

GIGABYTE AMD B450M S2H

This motherboard has the AM4 socket to accommodate the Ryzen 3 3100 and also supports overclocking, so you can extract every last drop of performance from your system if you want.

It’s nothing too fancy but it is an entry-level motherboard that will get you started for building your PC and offers upgradability to higher-end 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs and are most likely to support the Ryzen 4th Generation CPUs.

Moreover, this is a cheaper option than the one listed below. So buy this one if you wanna save some bucks.

ASRock B450-HDV

This motherboard has the AM4 socket to accommodate the Ryzen 3 3100 and also supports overclocking, so you can extract every last drop of performance from your system if you want.

It’s nothing too fancy but it is an entry-level motherboard that will get you started for building your PC and offers upgradability to higher-end 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs and are most likely to support the Ryzen 4th Generation CPUs.

This one is kind of a better design compared to the gigabyte one. But both are having similar features, with this one costing more at the time of writing this article.

RAM 

Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 8 GB 3000Mhz

Nowadays the minimum Amount of Ram for a decent PC is 8 GB and the higher the speed the better. The higher speed is incredibly helpful for Ryzen processors (because of the infinity fabric between the chipsets which can communicate faster with Faster RAM) making 3000mhz ram ideal for this build especially so because it’s only slightly more expensive or at times cheaper than its 2400 MHz counterpart. This Ram stick is one of the best values currently for its performance for the price.

Note: We would recommend using dual channel ram for this build, as it increases the performance greatly. Buy two of these sticks, for best performance.

GPU 

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super

At this Price Segment, this GPU is a no-brainer. if you get your hands on an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super around Rs 14k go for it it’s a bargain at that price.

It’s equipped with 1280 CUDA cores, 4 GB GDDR6 memory with 128-bit memory bus, and a memory speed of 12 Gbps. It will easily let you play at 1080p Resolution with detail levels set to High – Ultra at an average of 60 Fps on most of the modern AAA games.

Pairing this PC with a 75 Hz AMD FreeSync or G-SYNC capable Monitor would make for a very immersive gaming experience.

PSU

Thermaltake Litepower 450

PSU is the part most people compromise on when the budget is tight. But you shouldn’t because it powers all the components of the system and if it’s faulty or even if it’s not a good quality PSU your whole PC component may be damaged, even burnt.

That’s why we recommend you to get at least a 450W PSU with a minimum rating of 80+ white. The Thermaltake Litepower 450 under Rs 3,000 fits perfectly in this build for the above-mentioned reasons.

FAQs

Which is a better choice SSD or HDD?


If one has the budget to buy either an SSD or HDD, he/she should go for the SSD. There are many reasons why SSDs are better than HDD a few of which are listed below:
1) SSDs are much faster than HDDs in terms of sequential read and write speeds. That is why SSD reduces load times of apps and makes the experience much snappier.
2) SSDs also don’t have any moving parts like HDDs, which means they are much less prone to stop working.
3) Since 2019, SSD prices have significantly reduced. Nowadays a decent 500 GB SATA SSD costs close to a 1 TB HDD.

HDDs are still the best option if you need lots of storage, but we would recommend getting a small SSD for the OS and frequently used apps and HDD for the large files.

Is it worth building a PC?


If you have a limited budget and are planning to get a PC and are confused about whether to build or buy a PC, we would recommend you building your PC instead of buying it. You can make an exception if you don’t have time and don’t want to go through the hassle of building a PC. The reasons why you should build a PC are listed below:
1) You can build a PC at a much lower price when compared to buying the same PC with the same specs.
2)Building a PC is very simple; anyone can do it and thus save some money by not going for a pre-built PC. 
3)You can customize your PC the way you want it.
4)You will learn the technicalities of a PC while building it. 

If you are confused if you want to get a laptop or a PC, then the most important question one must ask is whether you are planning to use it outdoors. If the answer is yes, then you need a laptop and if no then building a PC is your PC is the best bet.

What is Hyperthreading or SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading)?

SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading) is a process by which a CPU divides its physical cores into virtual cores called threads. Hyper-Threading is Intel’s term for SMT. It enables each core to run two tasks at once. SMT increases the efficiency of the CPU and allows the CPU to execute several tasks simultaneously or run multi-threaded workloads with ease. Most high-end modern-day CPUs have SMT nowadays.

What is Dual Channel memory?

RAM communicates with the PC with the help of a memory controller present on the CPU using a bus, called memory bus. These memory controllers have multiple channels for communicating with the RAM—the more the number of channels, the faster the communication. Memory controllers with one channel, two channels, four channels, six channels, and eight channels are available in the market. The most common is dual channels, while six-channel and eight-channels are reserved for server CPUs.

What does the 80+ certification on a PSU signify?

80+ certification is a standard that validates that the PSU provides 80% or more efficiency at all loads (25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% of full load). The 80+ certification has expanded and now includes 80+ Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Titanium certifications. To get a better idea of the efficiencies corresponding to the different 80+ standards, take a look at the image below:
