If you’re hooked on playing AAA title games or into competitive shooting games like PUBG, Overwatch, Fortnite, CS:GO and Battlefield, this is the best guide for you to get the budget gaming PC at approximately TK 30,000.

CPU: I recommend AMD Ryzen 2200G processor with VEGA 8 GPU for the price-performance ratio and the most powerful inbuilt graphics processor till date.

Specification:

  • CPU Cores: 4, Threads: 4
  • GPU Cores: 8
  • Base Clock: 3.5GHz, Boost Clock: 3.7GHz
  • L1 Cache: 384KB, L2 Cache: 2MB, L3 Cache: 4MB
  • CMOS: 14nm FinFET
  • Package: AM4
  • Thermal Solution: Wraith Stealth
  • TDP: 65W

Price: TK 10,500-11,000

Motherboard: ASRock A320M- HDV is the best value for money motherboard available.

Specification:

  • Supports A-Series APUs and Ryzen Series CPUs (AM4 Socket)
  • Supports DDR4 3200+ OC (Ryzen CPU) / 2400 (A-series APU)
  • 1 PCIe 3.0 x16, 1 PCIe 2.0 x1
  • Graphics Output:HDMI, DVI-D, D-Sub
  • 7.1 CH HD Audio (Realtek ALC887 Audio Codec), ELNA Audio Caps
  • 4 SATA3, 1 Ultra M.2 (PCIe Gen3 x4 & SATA3)
  • 6 USB 3.1 Gen1 (2 Front, 4 Rear)
  • Realtek Gigabit LAN

Price: TK 5,700

Memory: I recommend at least 8GB DDR4 memory to run AAA title. You can purchase cheap 8GB memory within TK 5,500 but I suggest the G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200MHz 8GB DDR4 memory for better clock frequency.

Specification:

  • SKU:F4-3200C16D-16GVKB
  • Memory Type: DDR4
  • Capacity 8GB (8GBx1)
  • Tested Speed 3200MHz
  • Tested Latency 16-18-18- 38
  • SPD Voltage 1.20v

Price: TK 7,100

Storage: Gigabyte 120GB SATA SSD is best for budget rig for its price-performance ratio.

Specification:

  • Form Factor: 2.5-inch internal SSD
  • Interface: SATA 6.0Gb/s
  • Total Capacity: 120GB
  • Sequential Read speed : up to 500 MB/s
  • Sequential Write speed : up to 380 MB/s
  • Random Read IOPS: Up to 50k
  • Random Write IOPS: Up to 60k
  • TRIM & S.M.A.R.T supported

Price: TK2,650

Chassis and PSU: Power supply is the potential part of a PC, so you should choose wisely before buy. To build a cheapest gaming system is a challenge and cheapest system with quality component is a must. You can choose Value Top VT-831B Micro ATX with 200W PSU for only TK 2,000 but for memory OC and smooth operation, you shouldn’t buy this one. I recommend Cooler Master PSU Elite V3 400Watt rated power supply with Xigmatek SCORPIO or Cooler Master Masterbox Q300L chassis for better operation and aesthetics.

Add-ons: All above components are 30K approx for a budget build. You can add a HDD and a GPU to upgrade your system to the next level. This’ll cost you 22K extra for a GTX 1060 without bottlenecking the Ryzen 2200G and not require any better power supply unit.

GPU: Galax Geforce GTX 1060 OC 3GB DDR5

Specification:

GPU Engine Specs:

  • CUDA Cores 1152
  • Base Clock: 1518MHz
  • Boost Clock: 1733MHz Memory Specs:
  • Memory Speed 4004 (8008) Mhz
  • Memory Size: 3072MB (3GB)
  • Memory Interface: 192-bit GDDR5
  • Memory Bandwidth: 192GB/sec
  • OpenGL 4.5
  • Bus Support: PCI-E 3.0
  • DirectX 12
  • Display Support: Multi Monitor 3 Displays
  • Display Connectors: DP 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, Dual Link-DVI-D

So, calculating all components approximate price you can get a decent configuration with TK 30,000 without GPU and can play maximum game with 1080p medium setting at 40-60FPS depends on the title.

With the GTX 1060, you can play 2K res game with mid-high settings at 50-70FPS with TK 50,000 approximate budget.
