In India, making a productivity centric PC at a decent budget is very tough but with proper guidance and skills you can make a great PC for your professional work. 6 cores of new Ryzen 3000 CPUs are very powerful for both gaming and productivity but what if you get 8 cores at a lower price?
Exactly this has happened in India as the Ryzen 7 2700 with 8 Zen+ cores and 16 threads is available for as low as Rs. 14.6k which is insane value for money, especially for productivity workloads which need that extra amount of cores and threads. So I have been noticing people searching for PC build guide with Ryzen 7 2700 as it’s now the best selling CPU on Amazon.
Not only people love AMD’s cost-to-performance ratio but also love their compatibility to upgrade each year and obviously love the Zen architecture as a whole. Yes if you do really need an editing or rendering rig and want superior performance then this PC build is completely for you. You can play games with decent frame rates as well, not to forget this CPU was the best selling one in 2018.
So, here’s the complete Productivity/ Gaming PC build guide under ₹ 65,000:
