Best PC Configuration under Rs 25000

Lately I've been getting a lot of queries regarding PC configurations across various price ranges and since the ones I've posted earlier are quite obsolete now I thought why not to roll out a series of configurations to meet all your demands and to keep up with time.
Today I'll be posting a PC configuration under Rs 25000 as this is not only the most popular budget segment but also is the bare minimum you need to get yourself an up to date configuration. Before I proceed further I'd like to mention a few points to give you a clear picture as to what to expect from this configuration -
  • This configuration is aimed at daily to office use along with helping school kids for their school project etc
  • The build should be future proof and should last the user for over a year or two without any upgrade.
  • Upgrade should be easy and economical with minimum change of components.
  • It should be balanced over all with all the components in sync & at par without overpowering or under-powering others.
So with this in mind lets put together a PC configuration under Rs 25000

CPU - Intel G4560 Kaby Lake Dual Core 3.5 GHz Rs 6,500

When it comes to budget builds the Intel G4560 is the processor that I recommend due to its super effective pricing and the very competent performance. Clocked in at 3.5Ghz this dual core CPU based on the 7th generation Kaby Lake architecture supports hyperthreading and is bundled with HD610 graphics to drive your display and  let you play movies and edit images etc seamlessly. In case you plan to add a graphics card to this build then also the G4560 won't disappoint nor bottleneck making it a clear choice for this build.

Motherboard - Gigabyte B250M-Gaming 3 Rs 6,600

Since we are going for an Intel 7th Generation processor I would recommend a B250 chipset motherboard here over a H110 chipset one just to be on the safer side. Get the Gigabyte B250M Gaming 3 as its priced extremely well and offers a plethora of features such as ambient LED, four DIMM slots, Realtek ALC892 audio CODEC supporting upto 7.1 channel along with an M.2 port incase you need one in future.

RAM - HyperX Savage Red 8GB (4+4) 2400MHz DDR4 Rs 6,800

Considering today's time and how to landscape is changing in the PC industry 8GB of RAM is somewhat the sweet spot if you don't want to run for an upgrade soon after buying your new PC. I recommend the HyperX Savage Red 8GB 2400Mhz DDR4 kit of two sticks of 4GB each for maximum performance gain in  dual channel configuration. The kit is priced very well and works at 2400Mhz at CL11 which is more than you can use or ask for.

HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB Rs 3,300

Since we are building a PC it is quite obvious that you would be watching movies and listening to music aswell along with downloading a bunch of other stuff from the internet so we need a HDD here for which we’ll go with the Seagate Barracuda for its long line of trusted quality and service that it offers at a very reasonable price. The 1TB HDD spins at 7200RPM so you won’t feel it slowing down or spoiling your experience even if you play a multi-GB BluRay rip over your monitor or TV due to slow load/buffer time.

Case and PSU - iBall Axton with 450W SMPS Rs 2,200

The iBall Axton is a well build and decent looking cabinet for its price and this configuration. It comes bundled with a 450W PSU which is more than enough to power this system and keep it running stable for long duration without any issues. You get a 80mm exhaust fan in the back out of the box but you can swap it with a 120mm and also add a 120mm/140mm fan on the side to provide extra cool air to the components.

So this is a PC configuration under Rs 25,000 that I think is best and would work flawlessly and fulfill all your needs and requirements. I have not added the cost of a monitor or any other peripherals to this which you can buy as per your budget and requirements.
If you think this configuration needs any improvements or have any other suggestions or queries regarding the same then do leave a comment below.

  1. I do have a total budget of Rs.25000/- including monitor. Can you suggest some thing regarding the configuration. Thank you.

    1. Hello,
      Your budget is quite tight but still we can figure out something for you here -

      CPU - Intel G4560 Kaby Lake Dual Core 3.5 GHz Rs 4,200
      Motherboard - ASUS H110M-D Rs 4,700
      RAM - G.Skill RipJaws V 8GB DDR4 2400Mhz Rs 6,000
      HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB Rs 3,300
      Case and PSU - iBall Axton with 450W SMPS Rs 2,200
      Monitor - Dell 22' Full HD Monitor Rs 7,500

      This is the best you can get for your budget & later on you can add an entry level to mid range graphics card to this PC and can easily play most modern games at medium to high settings depending mostly upon your graphics card.
      Something like the Gigabyte NVIDIA GT710 2GB DDR5 for entry level and the SAPPHIRE RADEON RX 550 2GB GDDR5 OC PULSE or the ZOTAC GeForce GT 1030 2GB GDDR5 for mid range is what I suggest for this configuration later on if required for gaming.
      Feel free to ask any further questions.

  2. Hi
    I want to know how much cost a pc can for gta 5 requirements.

    1. Hello,
      For a gaming PC that can run games like GTA V at respectable settings in full HD resolution you'll need around 50K just for the main machine excluding the peripherals like keyboard-mouse, monitor etc.

  3. Hi,
    Kindly suggest a PC configuration under 20 k excluding Monitor KB Mouse
    with following options availability:

    1. CPU:
    * intel G5400
    2. Mobo
    * ASROCK H110 PRO BTC+ 13GP
    * MSI H 310 PRO M2
    * ASUS H 310 M- E

    3. RAM
    * CORSAIR 8GB VENGENCE (24 or 30 or 32 - all three available)
    * 2x 4 GB DDR4 HP (2400)

    4. HDD Seagate / WD

    5. Cabinet

    I wish to add a mid range graphics card later on for heavy games

    Alternatively you can suggest an intel and an AMD configuration under 20k from following list:
    Thanks in advance

    1. Hello,
      As per the parts you've suggested the best and most affordable configuration that can be made is the following -

      CPU - Intel Pentium Gold G5400
      Motherboard - H310M PRO-M2
      RAM - G.skill Ripjaws V 8GB DDR4 2400MHz
      HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB
      PSU - Corsair VS Series VS450
      Cabinet - Cooler Master 311

      If you ask me a configuration in or around your budget then I'll suggest the following -

      CPU - AMD RYZEN 3 1300X Rs 6600
      Motherboard - Asrock A320M-HDV R4.0 Rs 3340
      RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB 2400Mhz Rs 3340
      HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB Rs 3100
      Case - Antec NX100 Rs 2300
      PSU - Corsair VS Series VS450 Rs 2445

      This configuration is almost within the Rs 20K mark and would serve you better than the Intel one due to more memory and a quad core CPU which will help you while gaming but since this CPU doesn't have a integrated graphics so you won't be able to run your monitor without a graphics card right now you can swap the CPU with a AMD Athlon 200GE and its still better than the Intel one in the long run.
      So its your decision, if you can buy a graphics card right now or have an old basic one with you then opt for the 1300X or else go for the 200GE.

  4. Any graphics card suggestions for ryzen 3 build for 10k

    1. You can go for a RX 550 4GB in this range which will give you a good 4GB VRAM buffer for running games at decent setting and resolution. The Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 550 4GB OC is a great option.
      Also if you can find then surely go for the Gigabyte Radeon RX 560 Gaming OC 4GB as its priced at around Rs 10K only and will offer a significantly better performance over the 550 but this is the only model which is around the Rs 10K price tag from what I could find.
