Best Value PC Build Under 60000 for Gaming

2024 is a great time to build a Budget PC as we have many hardware options to consider. As we are transitioning to the next generation with DDR5 memory, and faster PCIe 5.0 storage, the price for older-generation hardware is at an all-time low.

If you want to build a budget PC under 60000, it is possible to do so with good hardware options that can last you for at least 3-5 years until you need to upgrade.

At this price point, the most important is the ability to upgrade your PC to newer, better hardware down the line. This PC is aimed at 1080p gaming and prioritizes at least one generational upgrade.

If you want a PC that can play all the games at 1080p with medium to high fidelity, here is the value PC build under 60000.

Intel i3-12100F


Intel i3-12100F
  • Socket: LGA 1700
  • Cores/Threads: 4/8
  • Base TDP: 58 Watt
  • Boost Clock: 4.3 GHz
  • Base Clock: 3.3 GHz
  • Cache: 12MB Intel Smart Cache, L2 5MB
  • Memory: DDR5 4800MHz/DDR4 3200 MHz (PCIe 5.0/4.0)
  • Lithography: Intel 10nm

Intel i5 processors are great value processors for gaming. 12100F is a 4-core processor which is the only good processor in the sub-₹10000 range.

12100F performs better than the Ryzen 5 3600 in terms of gaming and it is also significantly cheaper making it a great value budget processor. In terms of productivity, it is slower in tasks like compression, decompression, Code compilation, Adobe Premier Pro, etc. This is mainly due to the Ryzen 5 3600 having more cores and threads but that is not the only thing that matters.

In single-core performance, 12100F does slightly better than the Ryzen 5 3600. Check this video for a much more detailed performance chart of 12100F.

Intel 12100F is a solid choice for budget 1080p gaming as of now and currently, there is no other processor in this price range better than 12100F. If you are only gaming and do not care for professional or creative tasks, 12100F is a better choice although it is more than capable of occasional productivity.

  • Really good price-to-performance ratio
  • Cooler included
  • Great single-thread performance (good for gaming)
  • Slower than AMD Ryzen 5 3600 or Ryzen 4500 in tasks like Adobe Premier Pro, Blender renders, compression, decompression, etc. but is much cheaper



  • Socket: LGA1700
  • Chipset: Intel H610
  • Form Factor: Micro-ATX
  • Slots: 2x DIMM
  • Storage: 1x M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4, 1x M.2 PCIe 3.0×2, 4x SATA 6Gbps
  • Expansion slots: 1 x PCIe 4.0 x16, 1x PCIe 3.0 x1
  • USB Ports (Rear): 2x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.2 Type A

The only disadvantage of using an Intel-based PC is the high price of motherboards. Also, if you plan to use DDR5 memory, your overall cost of the build will shoot up. Even the DDR4 motherboards are more expensive than they should be.

For a PC build under 60000, a B-class motherboard is not possible because of its relatively high cost. Intel 12th gen has a budget option of an H-class motherboard.

Asus H610M-E D4 is a reliable choice for budget builds. Even though it is a budget board, it costs close to ₹6,000, which is insane! Nevertheless, there is no cheaper option but an Asus board is quite reliable.

The only downside of H610 is the availability of 2DIMM slots and fewer overall ports.

Asus Prime H610M-E D4 offers all the basic things required for a gaming PC except for overclocking. As for storage, you have two M.2 slots and 4 SATA ports. Overall, it is a reliable budget board and even though it is a great motherboard, it’s a good fit for a budget gaming build.

  • Reliable budget board
  • Two M.2 slots for storage
  • Less rear ports

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060

Graphics Card

  • Architecture: Ada Lovelace
  • Lithography: 5nm TSMC
  • CUDA Cores: 3072
  • RT Cores: 24
  • Tensor Cores: 96
  • Boost Clock: 2460 MHz
  • Bandwidth: 272 GB/s
  • Bus width: 128-bit
  • TDP: 115W

Since its launch, RTX 4060 has come down in price significantly which makes it worth recommending for certain builds. At around 25,000 INR, RTX 4060 is a compelling option for 1080p gaming.

It is capable of even 1440p gaming in most titles except for some latest titles that are “graphic-hungry”. The added benefit of DLSS and Frame Generation can be handy in giving some extra frames when running a particularly demanding title like Alan Wake 2 (great game, btw).

For 1080p gaming, RTX 4060 will easily enjoy all the games in high-fidelity and that is what we want right?

  • Solid 1080p performance, capable of 1440p gaming as well
  • DLSS and Frame Generation can come in handy in some demanding titles
  • 8GB VRAM

Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16

Memory (RAM)

  • Capacity: 16GB (2 x 16GB)
  • Speed: 3200MHz
  • Latency: CL16-20-20-38
  • Voltage: 1.35V
  • Bandwidth: Up to 51.2 GB/s
  • RGB: No

For a PC build under 60000, 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.

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

Western Digital Blue SN570 500GB M.2 NVMe

Storage (NVMe SSD)

  • 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?

  • Good value
  • Reliable

    Corsair CV650 80+ Bronze

    Power Supply

    • Type: Non-Modular ATX Power Supply
    • Efficiency: 80+ Bronze
    • Form Factor: ATX
    • Continuous Power: 650W
    • Fan Size: 120mm
    • Fan Bearing: Sleeve Bearing

    The Corsair CV550 650W 80+ Bronze PSU delivers reliable power at a budget-friendly price, making it a solid option for your gaming PC build under 60000. You might face some headaches during cable management due to its non-modular design, but apart from that, it will give enough juice for RTX 4060 + Intel i3-12100F.

    • Reliable PSU with no observed issues
    • Relatively cheap
    • 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.

    Some Alternatives

    1. You can upgrade the processor to i5-12400F for better productivity performance and even better gaming performance. However, 12400F costs 4000 INR more.
    2. You can use Radeon RX 7600 if you prefer AMD for your GPU. RX 7600 can be slightly faster depending on the titles but suffers in ray tracing performance. Check the RX 7600 review here.
    3. If you can stretch your budget a little more, you can opt for RX 6700XT which is about 12% faster than RTX 4060.
    4. You can opt for a B660 motherboard for better upgradability. Some choices – Gigabyte B660M GAMING AC, MSI Pro B660M-P DDR4
    5. You can opt for any PC case in a similar price range based on your personal preference and decent airflow.


    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 i5-12400F for slightly better gaming performance at the cost of a more expensive motherboard and less performance in productive workloads.

    Building a PC under 60000 will get you a decent powerhouse and you don’t need to break the bank for doing so. If your sole purpose is gaming, this is a great budget build. It can plow through any game at 1080p and will last you quite a few years before it starts becoming obsolete.

    You can use better processors on the same platform or swap for a more powerful GPU down the line. However, you might need to opt for a better B660 motherboard.
