Building a Gaming PC is more complex than you think; you must care about many things; otherwise, you will face many performance-related issues in the future. So, here are some of the important points that you should have to follow while building a Gaming PC by yourself:

understand your needs first

Understand your Needs First

Before building a Gaming PC or just a normal PC, it is important to understand your needs. Because by understanding your needs, you get to know what type of components you need and how much budget is enough to satisfy those needs.

do some research as per your needs

Do Some Research as per your Needs

So, after knowing your needs now, this is the next step to do some research on the components. List CPUs, GPUs, Memory, and other important things.

choose a balanced combination of cpu and gpu in order to avoid bottleneck or performance issues

Balanced Combination of CPU & GPU

Choosing a balanced combination of CPU and GPU is very important in a Gaming PC, which is why building a gaming pc is more complex than building a normal pc. From “balanced combination,” we mainly refer to choosing a CPU that will co-op with GPU without any performance drawback. If you pair a low-power CPU with a high-power GPU, you will have to face sudden FPS drops in gameplay; this means that your CPU bottlenecks; in simple language, your GPU draws more FPS, but your CPU cannot process those frames.

buy components for a long term

Buy Components by taking care of the future also.

As you are spending your hard Money, it is better to take care of the future also. Always Buy the latest components instead of buying older ones. You can upgrade to the latest processor and Graphic unit with the latest components. If you go with older hardware like 10th or 11th gen, and if you want to upgrade to a 13th gen processor, you will have to change the motherboard also, which will be an additional cost. So in this way, the latest components do not pay you in the short term, but in the long-term scenario, they will pay you back.

In GPU, we are using AMD RX6600. It is an 8gb GDDR6 Graphic Card based on AMD’s RDNA Gen 2 Architecture. This is one of the best budget graphic cards ever for Gaming in a 25k budget. This GPU was launched in the mid of 2021, but at that time, this GPU was hardly overpriced. Now, in 2023, the price of the GPU dropped from 40k to 26k, and in 2023, this is one of the favorite choices of mid-budget users.

With this GPU, you can do the ultimate level of 1080p Gaming at ultra settings. We had this GPU in almost all the AAA Title like RDR 2, God of War, Shadow of Tomb Raider, Cyber Punk, etc., at 1080p resolution with ultra settings, and we achieved almost 50+ FPS Average in Old AAA Titles like GTA V, Far Cry 5 it almost draws 90+ FPS. In the Esports games like Fortnite, Valorant, Pubg PC, and Counter-Strike, we get insane 200+ FPS at performance max. Settings is a highly graphics-intensive game except for COD Warzone, but we still achieve 80+ FPS at high settings.

We are using an aftermarket cooler that comes from Cooler Master. As we are building a Gaming Rig in which we do hours of intensive Gaming, so order to do that without any heating or performance issues, it’s better to use an aftermarket cooler instead of a stock one, especially if you live in an area where 40 degrees is the usual temperature in summer.

Wait for good deals.

In Online marketplaces there are a lot of hidden charges applied. We always see a free shipping option in every marketplace, but in actuality, they increase the price of the product to compensate for the cost of shipping and other discounts.

So it’s better to buy components during big sales like big billion days or great Indian festival sales. And before buying any components, remember to check their history price.

Buy components from the offline market.

Always buy components from the offline market. Because in the offline market, mainly the same components are available at much lower prices than online, and you also have the option to bargain, but in the online market, there’s no such option available.

Use some Used Components

If you have a tight budget, try to replace some components with a Used One; you can use a second-hand monitor or GPU; many offline stores sell used parts, which will almost reduce 20% to 30% cost. Note: A used part at least has a 6-month valid warranty, do not buy components without a warranty.

avoid using rgb fans or other fancy things if you have a limited budget

Avoid Buying Fancy Parts & Peripherals

As you have a limited budget, avoid buying Fancy things like RGB lighting, RGB case, and RGB Fans, which enhance your PC’s looks, but these things do not impact your pc performance. Instead, they increase your cost by up to 5% to 6%, so save that part and try investing in something that improves your PC performance.

We did not say that using RGB things is bad; if you have a budget to afford them, you can put them in your pc; otherwise, avoid using these things.

FAQs While Building a Gaming PC

Can Gaming PCs be used as workstations?

A Gaming PC is nothing, just a computer with some extra powers and abilities by which you can do your everyday work far better than a normal hardware computer. So, yes, you can use your gaming PC as a workstation.

But before this, please note that the processor you are using should have enough cores and threads so that you can multitask without any barrier.

If we go more technical, then while Gaming, the CPU mainly works on a single core, and the whole gaming stress is transferred to the GPU. We use low-core count CPUs in Gaming PCs to invest more in Graphic cards. Still, this statement is only valid if you just want to do Gaming and no other type of work like video editing, coding, or any sort of heavy multitasking productive work.

So, if you are thinking of building a PC for Gaming and working, then go for a CPU in which you get more cores and threads. As a basic idea, you need at least 6 cores and 12 threads CPU for Good multi-tasking or any other professional work. You can check the hardware guide. We have explained everything about hardware needs in different working industries.

Which is better, a gaming pc or a gaming laptop for Gaming in 2023?

As we all know, a Gaming PC always performs better than a laptop. As the laptop is for those who want portability, brands compromise with many key components to achieve that. If we compare the RTX 3050 Desktop Version v/s Laptop version, we can see a lot of difference between Clock speed, CUDA Cores & Power Usage. These key things create a lot of performance differences. So, A PC always performs 15%-20% better than a laptop. Some laptops are available in the market that perform the same as PCs, like Alienware, Razer, etc., but they cost a big buck. It would help if you had at least 1L plus budget for a budget-level Laptop. So, the final answer is that A Gaming PC always Performs better than a laptop, but if you still want a gaming laptop, you can go with high-segment laptops to achieve desktop-level performance.

This point is only valid for working professionals because, as a working professional, you travel a lot. It would help if you had something portable, lightweight, and Easy to Carry during this. And a PC has no relation with portability far away.So, if your main priority is portability and performance is not a concern for you, then a Gaming laptop is always a better option. But, if you sit in the corner of the room playing games all day, there are better options than a laptop.

In terms of hardware upgrading, A PC Wins the game because, in a PC, you can upgrade almost everything from CPU to motherboard, GPU, memory, and much more, but in a laptop, you can only upgrade memory segments like Ram & SSD. Some laptops are available in the market where you can upgrade the processor, but they cost a huge amount. So, in the long run, a PC is always a value-for-money option for you.

Final Opinion
So, here is the final answer, if portability is your main concern and you do not care about performance, then the laptop is always a better option.
But if you just want to do Gaming, then a PC is always a Future Proof and value-for-money option. So, understand your needs first and choose what is better for you.

Should you go with a custom build or buy a prebuilt PC for Gaming?

If we talk about value for Money from both, a Custom build always becomes a value-for-money deal compared to a pre-built one. Because a pre-built pc costs 20%-30% more than a Custom build pc.

But yes, that is also a concern that you need good technical knowledge in pc building; otherwise, you will choose the wrong combination, and in consequence, you will have to face performance issues like lagging, bottleneck, etc., but in a Pre-built PC, there is no such problem because they already assembled with well-balanced hardware.

So, here is the final answer: if you have good technical knowledge, then use your knowledge to build a custom one for yourself and save Money. But if you need help understanding technicals, go with a Pre-built pc or read some user-friendly articles about PC Building, like from budget gamers. In, and build your custom one.

How much budget is enough for good gaming pc?

It depends on your needs; if you are a hardcore gamer and plays every game at 4k resolution at max settings, then a budget build cannot satisfy your needs, you need beast-level hardware like RTX 3060ti with an i7 processor, and this type of hardware costs a big amount like more than 90K.

But on the other hand, if 1080p resolution is more than enough for you, then a 60k to 70k budget is a sweet spot. You can also consider our build if you have a mid-budget; you can do 1080p level gaming with ultra settings at 60-70 FPS in all modern AAA titles and even 100 Plus FPS in old Titles like GTA V, Doom, etc.


In conclusion, whenever you build a Gaming PC or a normal PC, try to understand your needs first and try to utilize your budget carefully, don’t spend your hard money on the things that you don’t need; instead of this, try to spend that money on key components like CPU, GPU, RAM this will improve your PC performance and make it Future Ready.

At last, with proper research and a smart selection of components, you can build a budget-friendly Gaming PC that offers a good gaming experience without draining your bank account.
