Hey Buddy,

I'm new in this group and wanted to build my first gaming PC for gaming and video editing works (I'm thinking to start my own youtube channel).

As I'm a student, I'm not able to spend much on PC Parts so I'm confused about which graphics card should I choose in my build?

Here is my build which I'm thinking to buy, please guide me is this graphics card okay for my build? And please help me in reducing the cost of my build.

A couple of things should be adjusted:

  • GPU: The RTX 2060 Super is last-gen technology and is way overpriced. The RTX 3060 Ti is the GPU you want. Right now, the RTX 3060 Ti (and every next-gen GPU at the moment) is out of stock due to high demand. Be patient, and hopefully in the next few months you'll be able to buy a 3060 Ti (which is way faster than a 2060 Super) at its $400 list price.
  • RAM: That RAM is faster than your Ryzen CPU can support and has high latency (CL19). Go with some 3600 MHz C16 RAM.
  • PSU: I would avoid the EVGA 600 BQ for multiple reasons, not the least of which a guy on this forum just had his RTX 3080 fried by an 850 watt version of that exact same PSU. Check it out: https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/rtx-3080-fe-fried-possibly-what-should-i-do.3668315/#post-22094830 Besides that, the bronze efficiency rating is very weak. I'd recommend a Corsair PSU (not CX series) rated for at least 650 watts, Gold efficiency.

What country are you actually in??

Those prices are ridiculous to be honest.

You can do way better for that budget.
Actually I’m from India. I’ve built this rig by selecting the US option on the website for better availability of the components. In India, mostly these things are overpriced, so I’ll check if I’ll get anything cheaper in local markets

So what's the actual budget in INR??

Its pointless doing a list like that on an American based site because we can't actually see what's decent value or not.

Also prices are inflated internationally at the moment so you're not alone in India with crazy high prices.
