Building a Gaming PC Under Rs.70000 or $700

Building a gaming pc under budget is extremely easy if you combine and collaborate right parts with each other. Choosing the right parts will allow you to squeeze maximum performance for your money without any bottlenecking.

This guide is to build a gaming pc under Rs.70000. I have research and have built many pc earlier and have a good experience. These are my suggestions for 1080p gaming at ultra and 1440p at medium to high setiings in most of the recent graphic demanding games such as Battlefield 1, Watch Dogs 2, GTA V, Sniper Elite 4 and many more.

Note: The prices may vary according to the date you are building the PC.

1.Processor

Choosing a right processor to pair with the gpu to avoid bottlenecking is important. I am going with the best budget option Intel i5 6600k. It is a quad core processor with a base clock of 3.5 ghz with a boost clock of 3.9 ghz. It is fully overclockable so you can get some extra frames. It is a very sweet choice and costs around Rs.19000 or $260. It is best compatible with the choice of our GPU.

2.Graphics Card

As we are on budget for 1080p and 1440p gaming the choice will be none other than the Nvidia GTX 1060 6gb variant. The card is beast for 1080p gaming and will handle most of the latest titles at ultra settings. The card has a clock speeds as follows:

  • Boost Clock / Base Clock / Memory Frequency
    1809 MHz / 1594 MHz / 8108 MHz (OC Mode)
    1784 MHz / 1569 MHz / 8008 MHz (Gaming Mode)
    1708 MHz / 1506 MHz / 8008 MHz (Silent Mode)

The card is also VR ready. The card performs better than AMD’s RX 480. The card has dual twin frozr fans which enables efficient cooling which ultimately leads to better and silent gaming experience.

3.Motherboard

We are going with the Gigabyte Z170 motherboard the ultimate choice for the processor. The motherboard supports dual channel DDR4 memory, PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 Connector, Intel USB 3.0 with USB Type-C, 2-Way Graphics with Premium PCIe Lane and many more features. With the SLI support available you can always gain more graphic performance by adding anpther graphic card.

4.RAM

The choice for the RAM is  Corsair Vengeance 8gb Kit with a clock speed of 1333MHz. It is recommended by many people and won’t let you down. It is a single memory stick so if you want some more memory you can add another stick as our motherboard is dual channel.

5.Power Supply

Corsair VS Series VS550 is a great high quality power supply with a 3 year warranty to supply juice to your components. There is nothing much to say on this.

6.Cabinet

Cabinet is important to choose correctly for proper space for the parts and air flow for quiet gaming. That’s why i am going with Corsair CC-9011050-WW Carbide Series SPEC-01 Steel Red LED Mid-Tower Gaming Case. It is a great case with ample space and room for additional components for future upgrades.

7.Cooler(Optional)

If you are going to overclock and want to stay on a safer side i would recommend to inevest in this cooler –Cooler Master Hyper 212X. This is one of the most recommended coolers and best for budget overclocking with copper heatpipes.

This is it folks. This are my choice of components to build a 1080p and 1440p capable gaming pc. I hope this guide helps you to build your gaming pc and get on  the chair and enjoy the epic sound of the games and those great graphics.

As we have witnessed the difficulties faced by the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in 2016 mainly because of it’s battery issues. The Smartphone leading company is set to restore the glory of it’s Note lineup.

Rumors have suggested that the company is set to release the flagship on 29th March, 2017. The company is tensed due to the failure of success of the preceding flagship.

Now let’s talk about the Note 8 it’s specs and design as suggested by rumors.

We all are aware how beautiful the Samsung’s smartphone displays are!!! Well this Flagship is not an exception with a 4k screen and the pixel density of whooping 773ppi it is sure the eyes are going to pop out to witness the accurate colors and crispy videos and images. The Super AMOLED screeen requires less battery life as compared to IPS panels. The display is protected by the corning gorilla glass 5.

2.PLATFORM

The Samsung will be running on the Samsung’s Custom UI Toucwiz on top of the latest Android Version 7.1 (Nougat).This will make the device snappier and fluid with less lag and crashes. The presence of Touchwiz will make the user available with more customization options such as themes, icons and much more. The most used  feature of Note devices is the split screen, this enables the user to take full advantage of the screen size for multitasking.

3.PROCESSOR

The Note 8 will be powered by the all new Snapdragon 830 processor which has not yet been announced. The Snapdragon 830 is the Qualcomm’s new top end processor with a highly efficient 10nm process which will make the device battery friendly and more powerful. Samsung also uses their own manufactured Exynos chips so we are not sure which one will be used or two variants will be released.

4.CAMERA

Now coming to the camera, Note 8 will be featuring 12MP rear camera with f/1.6, optical image stabilization (OIS), dual tone LED flash and 4K recording . Whereas the secondary or the selfie camera has 8MP shooter same f/1.6 and auto HDR. Rumors are made that the Samasung Galaxy will sport dual cameras. Hopefully we may see it in the Note 8.

5.DESIGN AND BODY

It will have a full glass body design  with Gorilla Glass 5 back panel which will make sure that it is a finger print magnet ;). Handling will be a problem as the glass is not as durable as aluminium or plastic panels. The device will be water resistent with IP68 certification with water resistant over 1.5 metres and 30 minutes limit. The Flasgship will be dust proff also.

6.MEMORY

The users will have the option to choose among 64 gb and 128 gb of internal storage along with an additional micro SD storage upto 256 gb. The 64 gb variant will have 6 gb of RAM and the 128 gb will have a monstrous 8 gb RAM.

7.FEATURES

The Note Lineup is famous for it’s unique features which are amazing and elegant. It will be featuring IRIS Scanner which was a very unique feature found only in the Note 7. IRIS scanner also increases the security a bit further. Talking about security the latest Note will also comprise of fingerprint scanner which will be front mounted along with other already known Note features.

8.BATTERY

No information is available about the battery. But it is sure to large as it have to take care of the great 5.7 inches 4k dispaly for thos crisp & clear, brighter media usage. We are specualting it to be more than 3200 mAh.

This is it folks. We all hope that the Note 8 will be a huge success as the Note 7 has depressed a lot of people only because of it’s battery problems otherwise the device was overall great. With this type of specs the Note 8 is sure to bang the market and regain the glory of the NOTE Lineup.
