Everything you need to know to pick the best budget computer for graphic design

Budget computer under 45k for Graphic Design

If you are in a dilemma what to choose for a budget computer for graphic designing then you have come to the right place.

Graphic Designing PCs are expensive but here we will talk about the budget components that is not going to cost you a hefty chunk and improve your workflow.

There are many choices of specs out there that can create confusion what to take and what not to. Building a PC in budget is not easy we will help you choosing the best components that suits your need and budget.

We will talk about components first that are available in the market within budget and at conclusion we will suggest the Rigs that you can choose within for your Graphic Design work.

1.Processor

When it comes to processor the obvious battle is between Intel vs AMD.

Intel has a slight edge advantage than AMD in single core performance department. A huge percentage of gamers like to go with Intel but for workstation AMD is preferable.

Our recommendation is to go with AMD. For graphic designing core count thread count RAM speed does matter a lot where AMD has an advantace over intel & AMD offers more value.

Recommeded processors Ryzen 3 3100 ,Ryzen 5 2600, Ryzen 5 3600, Ryzen 5 3600x

2.Motherboard

Our suggestion is to go for B-450 chipset motherboard with manufacturer of your choice and subject to availability. 

3.RAM

3000-3200 MHz Ram with heatsink. 8GB minumum

4.GPU

GPU is essential for graphic designing if you render it is must you should have a good GPU.

Our recommendation is to go for minimum gt-1650/Rx-570 or higher.

5.Storage

in 2020 SSD is must to have. Our recommendation is to go for m.2 nvme ssd as it is the fastest among all ssd variant.

For Graphic designing purpose you need to have a lots of space for your work management and secondary storage is important our suggestion is to go fot any 7200 RPM conventional internal HDD or you can also opt out for External Hard Drive too. This category is purely optional.

6.PSU

There are lots of PSUs available but keeping in mind that we are here discussing about budget build our recommendation is to go for 550-650 watt 80+ bronze certified PSU .

Recommended brands: Antec, Cooler Master

7.Cabinet

This is purely optional as of your choice and subject to availability but we recommend that you take mid tower case that has good ventilation so that in future when you upgrade your system you dont stuck with it.

Recommended brands : Corsair, Cooler Master, Antec, DeepCool,Gigabyte.
