The Price difference between Ryzen 1700 and 1600 is around Rs. 7,000. With that money, you can buy a better graphics card to improve your fps or get a better 144Hz monitor. Octa-core CPUs doesn’t help much in gaming.

The AMD Ryzen processor needs a dedicated graphics card, so the lower end Ryzen CPU doesn’t make any sense. In India, entry-level graphics cards with acceptable gaming performance start from Rs.12, 000 (NVIDIA GTX 1050).
