Playing games on 1440p quality at high-end settings is something that people find is costly. But that is not today’s case. Well, we’re not saying it’s cheap, but in India, you can still create a pretty great gaming PC below 70000.
Gaming PC Build Under 70000/-
We’re going to talk about all the components we’ve selected to create this PC. But before that, here’s a brief overview of the components that we’re going to use to create our 70K gaming PC.

|Motherboard||Asus ROG Strix B365-G Gaming||₹9,950|
|RAM||ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D40 16GB DDR4 (3200MHz)||₹5,575|
|HDD||Western Digital 1TB (7200 RPM)||₹3,290|

You may be wondering if this PC has the power to play all Modern AAA titles with over 100 fps. We can’t say that you will be able to enjoy all the new AAA title games at 100 FPS with ultra-settings. But that isn’t what we’re looking for here. Our incentive is to play all AAA titles at 1440p resolution at 60 + FPS.
Processor: Intel Core i5 9400F 9th Generation
Possibly the best gaming budget processor we’ve got right now! In our PC build, we have been using the Intel Core i5 9400F processor for some time. The only thing we have to think about because our primary focus is gaming, which is the GPU and not the CPU. The Intel i5 9400F offers up to 4.1GHz with 6 Cores and 6 Threads and a single-core boost clock. It doesn’t have an integrated graphics card, so a separate display GPU is required. Thanks to Intel, investing in a better graphics card saves a lot of dollars.
Go for the Ryzen 5 2600X if you would like to go for an AMD processor. It is a great choice and costs about 14,500/-. While it is a little bit costly, compared to 6 threads in i5 9400F, it has 12 threads. If your job requires plenty of multitasking, it is the perfect option. But make sure you opt for a compatible motherboard since AMD processors are not supported by the one below.
Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix B365-G Gaming
Asus ROG is a popular brand when it comes to gaming! Since we are building a 70K gaming PC, it’s obvious to have the Asus gaming motherboard. The ROG Strix B365-G is a microATX motherboard with four DDR4 RAM slots which supports up to 64GB of memory. It comes with dual M.2 slots for faster storage and readily supports Intel 9th Gen and 8th Gen processors including Pentium, Gold, and Celeron processors.
The motherboard supports memory to speed up to 2666MHz and has a single PCle 3.0 x 16 slot and 6 x SATA 6GB/ports. Other than that, it has 1 x HDMI port, 1 x DVI port, 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, 4 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, and 5 x audio jacks.
RAM: ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D40 16GB DDR4 (3200MHz)
Most gaming PCs can handle modern games at 8GB RAM. Since we want to play games at 1440p along with some multitasking and surfing (yes, chrome can be a real pain when it comes to RAM consumption), we will opt for 16GB RAM. For this, we have picked ADATA D40 16GB DDR4 RAM.
It is a 3200MHz which has an armor-inspired heatsink, perfect for gamers and overclockers. It features an armor-inspired design with a shining RGB LED strip at its peak. The RGB LED strip at its peak is controllable so you can adjust and tune the lighting with the ASUS AURA Sync software.
For gaming, 16GB RAM is enough since it is considered to be the sweet spot by gamers. Even if you are doing video editing and streaming online, 16GB RAM works fine. It’s not like you should not go over 16GB RAM but instead of investing in RAM, it is wiser to invest on a better graphics card.
HDD: Western Digital 1TB (7200 RPM)
Nowadays, faster storage is available at a cheaper price. So, we have picked Western Digital 1TB internal hard drive as one of our storage options. It’s plenty of space to store modern AAA titles and multimedia files. It can handle file transfer pretty fast because of its faster reading and writing speed.
SSD: Crucial BX500 240GB
You may ask why we have taken an additional storage option? The answer – We will use this extra storage to store our operating system. That’s why we have picked up Crucial BX500 240GB SSD.
Solid State Drives or SSDs are comparatively much faster than HDDs. SSDs reduce the boot time taken by the computer and ensures faster application loading time. Storing your operating system in an SSD is definitely a good move since it makes your PC faster even if you are storing larger files in your HDD.
GPU: GALAX GeForce RTX 2060 6GB
Now comes the most important part of our PC build. Graphics Card is undoubtedly one of the most important components of a gaming PC. Though RTX 2060 can play 1080p gaming with FPS going over 100 in some cases, it can also handle modern AAA titles at 1440p with 60+ FPS and even 4K at low settings.
When tested with several games at max settings, the RTX 2060 delivered 90 FPS in Far Cry 5, 78 FPS in Battlefield V, 70 FPS in Forza Horizon 4, and 60 FPS in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. We can definitely say RTX 2060 is the perfect gaming graphics card at 1440p resolution.
PSU: Thermaltake Smart BX1 RGB 550W
To start with, a power supply should be chosen carefully. Take any power supply lower than the recommended and boom! you have successfully fried your PC. Our PC build recommends a power supply greater than 500W so here we are taking Thermaltake BX1 RGB 550W PSU to be on a safer side. And yes, it is an 80 PLUS Bronze certified PSU. An RGB fan does add a bit of coolness to your PC build.
Cabinet: Thermaltake V200 RGB Tempered Glass
Keeping in mind the future up-gradation of your PC, we are opting for the Thermaltake V200 RGB Tempered Glass. It is a mid-tower RGB edition cabinet that comes with a durable tempered glass window, clear acrylic front, and a handy PSU cover. In the front, it is equipped with three 120mm RGB intake fans that can be controlled by the I/O port RGB button or synchronization with the RGB capable motherboard brands like Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, and the rest of them. It also got one 120mm standard fan in the back.
Thermaltake V200 supports ATX, Micro ATX, and Mini ITX motherboards. You can also include a CPU cooler but make sure the height must not be greater than 160mm. In the top front panel, you will find one USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports.
This sums up all the components that we have chosen for this PC build. It will definitely provide a smooth and great experience in all the modern AAA titles.
