Excellent people tecxllent welcome’s you so this is tite budget  Gaming pc accessories so without waste anymore time let’s get started!

The Components for a 4K Gaming PC

We’re going to discuss each of the components that you’ll need to build the PC separately, in order to avoid any confusion. You can get all of these components on Amazon and the links to purchase it have been provided under each of these components. So, let’s take a look at all the components required.

Note: This $1500 build will include all the components that you’ll need to power 4K displays. The cost of the 4K monitor is not included in the price of the build!

1. Processor

As this component is basically the most important part of your computer that decides the overall performance, we will not be sacrificing performance just to bring down the price. As far as this build is concerned, we will be going with Intel’s latest Kaby Lake i7-7700K desktop processor which has base clock of 4.2 GHz and boost clock of up to 4.5 GHz. It’s the processor which is widely preferred by people for their gaming needs. The i7-7700k is an unlocked processor, which means you will be able to easily overclock it if you need more performance than it already has. It currently costs $329 on Amazon and prices may slightly vary any time.

2. Graphics Card

The GPU that your PC runs on, completely determines the gaming performance that you’re going to get. We aren’t gonna make any compromises here and we will be going for NVIDIA’s top-tier Pascal card, the GTX 1080 which was released back in May 2016. This graphics card can handle 4K and VR on almost all of the games with absolute ease. There are several variants of the GTX 1080 made by different manufacturers like Asus, Zotac, MSI, Gigabyte and EVGA, but we will be going with the Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 Gaming graphics card which has a triple fan set up which is essential to keep the temperatures down, considering you’re living in a hot country like India. If you want a slight boost in performance, you can easily overclock it with MSI Afterburner software as well.

3. RAM

Most of the latest games available at the moment, require a minimum of 8GB RAM, even though 16GB is recommended to get the best performance. So, for RAM, we’ll be going for the Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR4 RAM in dual-channel with a frequency of 3000MHz. This is usually the RAM which PC enthusiasts prefer and it’s quite popular among gamers.

4. Case

There are plenty of PC Cases to choose from. Nowadays, there are several cases made out of tempered glass with RGB lighting built-in. However, we decided to go for the Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-ALPHA Mid-Tower case, as we’d like to cut down some costs and save some money in this department. Looks aren’t everything. We are aiming for performance on a budget. That being said, this case will still manage to turn heads, because of its unique angular design. It costs just under $80 and coming from a well known brand like Corsair, this case won’t leave you disappointed.

5. Motherboard

This will be the first component that you will be installing inside your Corsair SPEC-ALPHA case and this will house and connect to all of the components of your computer. Considering your having an unlocked i7-7700K processor which is capable of overclocking, we decided to go for a motherboard that will easily allow overclocking as well. We’ll be using the MSI Z170A Gaming M5 motherboard for this build, as it’s not expensive and provides almost all the features that you’ll need for this build. It’s priced at just under $130 on Amazon.

6. Power Supply Unit

Do not underestimate the importance of a Power Supply Unit (PSU). It’s equally important as all the other components mentioned above. The PSU powers up your entire system and without this, your PC is incomplete. We’ve decided the PSU that we’re going to use in this build based on three things – Power output, Efficiency and Manufacturer. EVGA is a well known manufacturer and their customer support is impressive. That’s not the only reason why we chose EVGA 600 B1 PSU for this build. It’s 80 PLUS bronze certified and has 85% efficiencywhich is quite important in a gaming rig. For this build, we chose the 600 watt PSU to give you some overclocking headroom, just in case you decided to overclock your CPU and GPU for some performance boost. We could’ve gone for a fully modular PSU to get better cable management for a higher price, but like I said, we’re on a budget and we’re going for performance, not the looks.

7. Storage

We’re living in 2017, so don’t imagine building a PC without an SSD. We”ll be using two storage drives in our build. One will be an SSD that will be our primary boot drive, to speed up your Windows. Other will be a traditional HDD that will satisfy all your space requirements. You can install some important applications that you frequency use on your SSD as well, in order to speed up their load times. As far as SSD is concerned, we’ll be going for a Sandisk SSD PLUS 120GB SATA solid state hard drive. Sorry, if you were thinking that we were gonna add an NVMe or M.2 SSD, as that won’t fit our budget. We decided to choose Western Digital’s 1 TB Caviar Blue SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 RPM HDD

8. CPU Cooler

You have an i7-7700K processor in this build, which you’ll probably be overclocking. The stock cooler that comes with the CPU has always been considered as trash. At stock speeds, the temperature of the CPU is still high while using a stock cooler.  So, keeping that in mind, we’ve decided to go for an aftermarket CPU cooler that can keep your temperatures low and also provide you with some minor headroom for overclocking, if you plan to do so. We chose the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO to do that job. This is widely considered to be one of the best CPU coolers you can buy on a budget and at a price of under $30, I’d say the Hyper 212 EVO is a steal.

9. Keyboard & Mouse

This is the year of RGB components, as the craze for RGB is at it’s peak right now. If you haven’t read the news, there’s even an RGB chair for gamers. We didn’t want to disappoint you in this regard. We wanted to choose an RGB Keyboard & Mouse combo for under $100 and guess what? We just did it. We went for theLogitech’s G213 Prodigy Gaming Keyboard with RGB lighting, but make no mistake, this is not a mechanical keyboard, it has rubber dome switches in them. The keys have 4mm travel distance and the keyboard also has an armrest, so you wont be disappointed on that front.

As far as mouse is concerned, we decided to trust Logitech again and chose the G303 Daedalus Apex Performance Edition gaming mouse. Logitech makes some great mice and that’s exactly why we chose them. The mouse comes with an on-the-fly DPI switcher letting you change your DPI from 200-12000 DPI with just a few clicks and also has glorious RGB customizable lightingfor a price of just under $35. Quite a steal, right?
