Highlights of the Story

  • A Ryzen CPU based build is the way to go
  • Intel Pentium Gold G5400 paired with a dedicated GPU is an excellent choice too
  • The former costs Rs. 19,427 whereas the latter costs Rs. 22,557

PC building can be a very tedious affair for beginners. More so when it comes to a gaming PC build. Besides, there are a lot of things that you need to keep in mind when you have a set budget. When it comes to a gaming pc build under Rs. 20,000, it is important to choose the perfect components. With such a budget, it is not possible to go overboard with the best components out there. However, there are a variety of different components which can provide you with a great pc gaming experience for the price.

Also, it is important to keep in mind that if you need to do light tasks, just a CPU will suffice. However, if you want to play games, an integrated or dedicated GPU is a must. There are so many questions that come to mind, like whether one should go for Intel or AMD. However, it is a very circumstantial question and here we are going with an AMD build. This is simply because of the budget and also the fact that the AMD APU also comes with a great integrated GPU. Moreover, this GPU is the Radeon™ Vega 8 Graphics which is an excellent budget gaming card.
