Sad times are upon gamers. Only way you can build a gaming PC for 70k is by opting for used GPUs.

CPU - Intel i5 10400 - 17.5k (has iGPU)

Mobo - Gigabyte B560M DS3H - 9.5k

RAM - 2x8GB DDR4 3200MHz - 6k

GPU - Used GTX 1060 6GB - 10k (1070 for 15-16k)

M.2 SSD - Kingston A2000 500GB - 5k

HDD - WD/Seagate 1TB 7200RPM - 3.2k

PSU - Corsair CV650 or CM MWE or other 550W 80+ bronze - 4.5k

Cabinet - MSI MAG Forge 100M or other mid tower ATX - 4.5k

Total - 60.2k

Monitor - HP x24ih 1080p 144Hz IPS Freesync - 17.5k (Future upgrade)

Can go for GPU later in future.
What about Ryzen config ?

And also, where to get used GPU (if any)

Yes, you can, that's why suggested a CPU with iGPU. So the PC will function.

AMD has no good CPU around i5 10400's price bracket. R5 3600 lacks iGPU & is a bit inferior in gaming as i5 10400 can use XMP now with B560, not possible with B460.

OLX, local facebook groups/ads, PC part FB groups like Akextacy, techenclave forum are good start for used GPU hunting.
