It’s been a little more than a month since we’ve all been asked to practice social distancing and quarantine in our homes, in these times people find themselves having a lot of time and nothing special to do all the day except for the PC gamers. They enjoy the most of their time on PC builds and games. The whole supply chain is affected in the country If you’ve been shopping for a new computer, PC component or peripheral lately you may have noticed the retail prices are increased even the largest retailers internationally Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart — are out of stock or are advertising massive shipping delays due to the corona-outbreak so there is nothing more to explain since the import stayed closed nation-wide for more than a month. Don’t worry if you’re seeing huge price-hike during this lock-down they’re getting normal soon I have talked to the some suppliers they have next shipment upcoming ZOTAC and MSI. In the addition I have reached out to some shops as well according to them they are currently experiencing a surge of orders especially the used-market for graphics-card of several AMD Radeon products. We have prepared a fine used build guide for those people who have decided to enter in the world of PC Gaming ranging from 25,000 PKR to 85,000 PKR. Please keep this in mind this is the used build guide.

Our ‘Super-Entry’ used build starting from the 25,000 PKR, There was a time when you could build the more powerful build than this at this amount paired with the better GPU of-course but time has changed. Our Entry-Build is recommended for the E-Sport users who wants around 150 FPS in CSGO at low-settings.

Our one of the best build-guide known as ‘PPG Build Guide’ This build is powerful enough to fulfill all your needs. 4-core and 8 threads are still relevant in gaming and some light productivity tasks. You can upgrade to 16GB of the memory later or upgrade the GPU. This processor can handle GTX 1070/GTX 1660 without any noticeable bottleneck but we’re not stopping here you’re looking for a best-gaming machine under 85K.
