Best Value PC Build Under 50000 for Gaming (January 2024)

Building a budget gaming PC that is capable of playing the latest games at 1080p is not that difficult. Given that some of the latest AAA games demand a lot of resources, a PC build under 50000 INR can get you some good hardware for most of the games.

The primary aspect of this build is to have some upgrade path if need be for future upgrades. A PC build of this caliber will be good for 2-3 years, more if you do not need to play the latest AAA games at the highest fidelity.

Even though this build primarily focuses on gaming, it won’t be a slouch for productive workloads like video editing, 3D rendering, or any other such tasks.

Note: Excludes peripherals like display, keyboard, mouse, etc.

Anyways, let’s start! Here’s the best PC build under 50000 for gaming.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600

Processor

  • Socket: AM4
  • Cores/Threads: 6/12
  • Base TDP: 65 Watt
  • Boost Clock: 4.2 GHz
  • Base Clock: 3.6 GHz
  • Cache: L1 384KB, L2 3MB, L3 32MB
  • Memory: DDR5 3200MHz (PCIe 4.0)
  • Overclocking: Unlocked
  • Lithography: TSMC 7nm FinFET

AMD has a lot of offerings in the budget segment. Even though the Ryzen 5 3600 is quite old at this point, it is still a great processor to consider at less than 10,000 INR. With 6-cores and 12-threads, it is perfect for 1080p gaming when paired with entry-level 60-class GPUs.

Given the price constraints, Ryzen 5 3600 is the best choice as you have so many upgrade options if you want a better processor down the line. AMD has recently added new processors for the AM4 platform, keeping it relevant.

For this PC build, Intel i3-12100F can be a good choice as well but the motherboards for that platform can be expensive making the build go over 50,000 INR.

Pros
  • Unlocked Overclocking
  • Good balance of multi-core performance and gaming performance
  • Power efficient
Cons
  • Might become a bottleneck in some rare titles like Cities Skylines 2, and Alan Wake 2.

MSI Pro B550M-P Gen3

Motherboard

  • Socket: AM4
  • Chipset: AMD B550
  • Form Factor: Micro-ATX
  • Slots: 4x DIMM
  • Storage: 1x M.2 Gen3 x4 slots, 4x SATA III ports (6 Gb/s)
  • Expansion slots: 1x PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, 2x PCIe 3.0 x1 slots
  • USB Ports (Rear): 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A (10 Gbps), 2x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A (5 Gbps), 4x USB 2.0 Type-A

This is a great motherboard for a budget build and has most of the features one would expect for such a price. It has ample USB ports, storage expansions and debug LED lights which is handy in troubleshooting.

Although it is a perfect motherboard for this price, its PCIe 3.0 x16 slot can become troublesome in rare cases when you use GPUs like RX 6500XT which runs on PCIe 4.0 x4. Pairing such GPUs with this motherboard (PCIe 3.0) can significantly reduce the GPU performance.

Note: Paring this with RX 6600XT or any higher-end model will produce this problem.

Pros
  • Good for a basic budget board
  • Reliable
  • Ample storage and connectivity
Cons
  • Lacks PCIe 4.0 for GPU slot

AMD Radeon RX 6600XT

Graphics Card

  • Architecture: RDNA 2
  • Lithography: 7nm
  • Compute Units: 32
  • Ray Accelerators: 32
  • Infinity Cache: 32MB
  • Boost Clock: 2539 MHz
  • VRAM: 8GB GDDR6
  • Bandwidth: 256 GB/s
  • Bus width: 128-bit
  • TDP: 160W

RX 6600XT is one of the best value graphics cards in the current market and the perfect card for 1080p gaming. There is nothing else in this tier that comes close in terms of value.

It is even capable of 1440p gaming in many titles. However, some of the newer AAA titles may not run games at 1440p with the highest settings. It has good power efficiency, 8GB of VRAM and does well enough in productive workloads.

Pros
  • Solid 1080p performance, capable of 1440p gaming as well
  • Best performance-price value in the current market
Cons
  • Ray tracing performance is not on par with the competition
  • AMD FSR and Frame Generation is inferior compared to Nvidia’s DLSS

Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16

Memory (RAM)

  • Capacity: 16GB (2 x 16GB)
  • Speed: 6000MHz
  • Latency: CL16-20-20-38
  • Voltage: 1.35V
  • Bandwidth: Up to 51.2 GB/s
  • RGB: No

For a PC build under 50000, the Corsair Vengeance DDR4 offers a solid performance boost without breaking the bank. 16 GB is the sweet spot for most games at 1080p or even 1440p games. The 3200MHz clock speed and tight CL16 timings translate to smoother, faster-loading applications and a more responsive gaming experience.

Pros
  • Not too expensive
  • Reliable memory
Cons
  • 16GB might not be enough for simulation games like Cities Skyline.

Western Digital Blue SN570 500GB M.2 NVMe

Storage (NVMe SSD)

Samsung 980 Pro 1TB NVMe M.2
  • Type: NVMe PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 SSD
  • Capacity: 1TB
  • Form Factor: M.2 2280
  • Sequential Read Speed: Up to 3500 MB/s
  • Sequential Write Speed: Up to 2300 MB/s
  • Random Read Speed (4KB, QD32): Up to 360,000 IOPS
  • Random Write Speed (4KB, QD32): Up to 390,000 IOPS

This is what I use in my PC and I have come and it hasn’t given me one single problem. Even though it is not very fast compared to some other SSDs, it is not bad given the price.

It is reliable and has good read/write speeds. What more do you want from an SSD?

Pros
  • Good value
  • Reliable
Cons

    Corsair CV550 80+ Bronze

    Power Supply

    • Type: Non-Modular ATX Power Supply
    • Efficiency: 80+ Bronze
    • Form Factor: ATX
    • Continuous Power: 550W
    • Fan Size: 120mm
    • Fan Bearing: Sleeve Bearing

    The Corsair CV550 550W 80+ Bronze PSU delivers reliable power at a budget-friendly price, making it a solid option for your gaming PC build under 50000. You might face some headaches during cable management due to its non-modular design, but apart from that, it will give enough juice for RX 6600XT + Ryzen 5 3600.

    Pros
    • Reliable PSU with no observed issues
    • Relatively cheap
    Cons
    • Non-modular design can make cable management challenging

    Antec DP31 Mini Tower

    PC Cabinet

    • Dimensions (L x W x H): 378mm x 200mm x 398mm
    • Weight: 3.7kg
    • Motherboard Compatibility: Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX
    • Drive Bays: 2x 2.5″ SSD, 2x 3.5″ HDD
    • Front: 2x 120/140mm fans
    • Top: 2x 120mm
    • Rear: 1x 120mm (pre-installed)

    Antec has some decent budget cases and this one is a good mini-tower PC case. Please note that it doesn’t support ATX motherboards since it is smaller in size. It doesn’t have pre-installed fans in the front, so you might have to pick up some fans.

    Given the price, it has decent airflow and enough drive bays for SSDs and HDDs. Since this particular configuration will not generate too much heat, this cabinet will do a good job of keeping your PC cool.

    Conclusion

    This build is gaming-focused and a solid 1080p gaming PC build under 50000 INR. At this price, there aren’t a lot of alternatives but you could use Intel i3-12400F for slightly better gaming performance at the cost of a more expensive motherboard and less performance in productive workloads.

    You could also use RTX 3060 instead of RX 6600XT for that DLSS sweetness at the cost of some performance. The hardware you choose is based on your preference but this one is the best value gaming PC build that you can build under 50000 INR.
