A lot of people are looking to buy gaming PC now due to the on going pandemic which has resulted in the increase in prices but worry not as we have combined a list of items you need to get you own gaming rig in under Rs 50,000.
Some of the parts used for this build are used parts as you all know that prices of PC components are quite high in Pakistan so it’s better to buy some used parts. This PC is going to cost you guys almost Rs. 50000.
Processor and motherboard:
The processor we are going to use in the build is the i7 3770 which is a Quad-Core processor and comes with base frequency of 3.40GHz (Max Turbo Frequency is 3.90GHz) and 8 MB Intel® Smart Cache. It also comes with Intel Clear Video HD Technology to handle high definition playback with ease.
Now talking about its performance it is one of the best processor for its price. I have personally used it and I can say it is still one of the best processor when buying in a budget. It was released in early 2012 but when I compared its performance with the new i3 9100F or an i5 7400 it still performed really well.
You can easily buy a used i7 3770 from any good computer shop in Pakistan in between Rs. 13000 – Rs. 15000.
The motherboard we are going to use ASUS H61M-E which is a simple motherboard and have 2 DDR3 RAM slots. You can easily buy it for almost Rs.5000.

Graphic card and RAM:
The graphic card we are going to use is the SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 470 4 GB which is one of the best graphic card when buying under a low or moderate budget. Many of you will say that why I didn’t choose the NVIDIA GTX 1050 or 1050 ti but believe me I have used all three of them and I will say that I found the Rx 470 better in terms of both price and performance
You can buy a new one from almost Rs. 22-25000 and a used one for approximately Rs. 15000.
Talking about RAM, 8 GB of RAM is enough for most of the games but for games like Cod Warzone you might need 12 GB or 16 GB of Ram. You can buy 8 GB of RAM for almost Rs.4000 or Rs.5000.

SSD and HDD:
We are going to use a 120 GB SSD in this build. A SSD is much faster than a simple hard disk but it is also expensive. A 120 GB SSD is enough for installing windows and you can also install a few games in it. You can buy an ADATA 120 GB SSD for almost Rs. 4500.

A 1TB HDD is enough if we are using the PC only for gaming. You can buy a Seagate BarraCuda 1TB Hard Drive for almost Rs. 6000.

Most of the people don’t pay attention while buying power supply but I will highly recommend you to always buy a reliable and branded power supply and try not to buy a used power supply.
A 450W or 500W Corsair or Thermaltake PSU is enough for this PC.
It will almost cost you Rs.5000-Rs. 6000
Casing to be honest is an extravaganza so you should buy a simple one considering your budget or if you want to go over the budget you can buy one from czone as they have quite a variety.
Due to the financial crisis cause by the COVID-19 pandemic, the local economy has crashed which in return has caused the US Dollar to reach sky high. This has increased the price of computer components in Pakistan. So I will recommend you to build your PC after the pandemic, when the economy gets stable. If you are still able to get the parts mentioned above at the right price, then you are good to go.
