One of the most popular questions that our readers ask us is- “What should I include in a budget gaming PC?”. The fact is that the PC components market is so lively that it is difficult to point to a certain configuration at a certain point of time and state with complete conviction that this is the perfect build for a specific budget.
However, we also do realise that there will always be a large number of PC gamers always looking out for the best deals on upgrades and a correspondingly large number of people looking to build their first gaming PC. So, here is our pick for the best gaming PC that you can build for about Rs. 50,000.
Please Note: We’ve made two assumptions here- 1) We haven’t considered the price of the OS since we assume you will use the legitimate copy you already own. 2) We have considered the best prices from trusted online sources. You can however choose to go to a physical retailer and negotiate for lower prices.

The FX-8320 is an 8-core processor clocked at 3.5 GHz per core. It’s great for overclocking and has a TDP of 125W. While it may not match up to the Intel Core i5s, it is able to provide a considerable amount of performance for its price.
We’d recommend you stick to the stock cooler with this processor.
