Build A Gaming PC With A Budget

What’s up guys! Today I wanna go over a topic that I get a lot of questions about and that I see a lot of people asking others about. What today`s topic is gonna be about is if you can build a gaming PC with a budget? I am going to go over some builds that are cost effective for a couple different price ranges depending on what you want to potentially pay for the overall build you wanna do.

These are just some guidelines to help lead you in a better direction then be completely lost in the process. You don’t have to follow these builds 100% but it gives a better idea of what parts you will need for the build and approximately how much it will cost.

$400 PC Builds

For this build you are going to want to pick up a AMD Ryzen 5 2400G processor which is a good option because it has Vega 11 onboard graphics. The RAM you are going to be using for this is Patriot Memory VIPER 4 Series 3000MHz which will give your PC the speed it needs to perform at its best. Since having a lot of storage for a Gaming PC is a big benefit you will want to pick up a Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM.

This build will need some good power running to it so we are gonna go with a Corsair CX Series 450 Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Non-Modular Power Supply to make sure that you have enough power running into your system and it doesn’t run out. Next we have to find a good Motherboard, which for this build is gonna be the MSI Performance Gaming Micro-ATX Motherboard (B450M Gaming Plus) to make sure that it takes advantage of the CPU that we picked out before, and gets the best performance it can.

For the final piece of this build we are going to grab a Thermaltake Versa H15 SPCC Micro ATX Tower so we can really fit the build together and get gaming.

Game On!

Saying that these are the price ranges that are typical doesn’t’t mean that you have to do it exactly that way. Some people want to stay on a budget but one component is more important to them than the others. For some it’s all about the graphics, so they might choose to go lower on the price of most parts but then splurge on the graphics card. Other people might favor power over graphics & want a better CPU instead. It does heavily depend on your needs.

Different games will have different needs. Also, many people get a gaming PC but also use it for work, their bills, surfing the net, the whole family might use it etc. Everyones preference will differ based on their own needs & uses. These builds are just some of the best that I’ve seen or put together and had most success with. All of these builds will support 1080p gaming and the higher builds like the $600+ builds can support some 1440p games as well, so you can get your game face on and get gaming.
