Ryzen Zen3 processor are due for announcement today. Hold a little. If you need it like today, following is what I suggested in other thread earlier this week;

Ryzen 3 3100 - 8500 - PrimeABGB
ASUS Prime A320M-K - 4550 - PrimeABGB
Adata 8GB 3200MHz CL16 - 2850 -PrimeABGB
Zotac GTX1650 Super - 14,650 - PrimeABGB
Cooler Master MWE 450W - 2550 - PrimeABGB
Kingston KC600 250GB SSD - 3375 - PrimABGB
WD 1TB Blue HDD - 3500 - PrimABGB

You may get something from above cheaper locally/other vendors who sell online/Amazon-Flipkart upcoming sale.

This is about 40K without case and monitor. Fetching a used RX570 or GTX1060 at about 6/7K or 8K, respectively, could help to fit case and monitor in your budget comfortably.

Below is my recommendation which is slightly above your budget. But I think you might be able to fit in if you purchase from offline stores. Online prices are slightly higher and no option to haggle as well.
However, if you still want to reduce your price, then I suggest the following changes:
  1. GTX 1050 Ti and you can save around 1k-1.5k
  2. Basic mouse + keyboard and you can save 0.5k
  3. 8 GB RAM (sufficient for gaming) and you can save 2.7k - You can, later on, buy one more stick and upgrade
If going slightly beyond your budget is ok, then I believe the following specs are good for you.
I have given an option for M.2 as well, however, there is no advantage as such but it looks and sounds cool for an additional 900 bucks ;)
And lastly, I purposefully suggested a smaller case since you will get a micro-ATX mobo and only 1 HDD.
You should add 1 additional case fan upfront for air intake, will add 250-400 bucks to your cost but will definitely help in cooling and long run.

@NoMansLand I would suggest not to recommend vanilla GTX1650 cause it is really poor VFM. At 2K extra GTX1650 Super is perfect entry level card and roughly 30% better. Also for SSD, not worth saving 500-600 bucks by going most budget level SSD (GX1) vs good sata performing SSD (KC600) >> refer to this chart https://ssd.borecraft.com/SSD_Buying_Guide.pdf

I totally agree but the above spec was to get the best performance while staying as close to budget as possible.
As a general rule, you can always get better quality products by spending more money!! :) :)

Don't go with any BIG E commerce for PC Parts etc.

if supplier/seller/brand do not support you or provides after sales service then as a buyer you will be in fix.... neither eCommerce website nor seller will help you.

Better buy Directly from Online H/W Sellers like PrimeAbGb, Vedanta, MdComputers etc. reputed sellers, do not compromise After Sales Service just for 2-3k difference, when you are about to spend 50k

There is difference between "better quality products by spending more money" vs "better value products by spending marginally more money"


This makes sense, however, if I am really tight on budget and need a 240 GB SSD, I would rather go for a budget SSD than a 120 GB better-performing SSD.

Almost 7 yrs back when I was on a budget. I bought the cheapest SSD from Amazon US for my ROG laptop and made it my primary drive. The other (default) drive was a WD Black HDD 320 GB.
I think what I bought was a Zalman 60GB. It has worked fine for me to date and is still much faster than the WD Black HDD. I have done my fair share of gaming for a few years on it as well.

So, yes, the above recommendation was based on my experience when you are strictly on budget. But if you have some leverage, then one should definitely go for a better value product which is what you have suggested. :)
