whether you’re looking to
DESTROY THE UNDESERVING
or expand your gaming machine arsenal while keeping costs down
(to an extent… ok I don’t know if I can call this a budget build anymore haha).
This budget PC build guide is here to help you put together a great gaming rig on a budget… ok sorry, on a
BuDgEt“.

It isn’t hard to find cost-effective components to build something on the cheap, however, putting together something good enough to keep up with modern PC gaming at really high specs?
…That takes some serious planning. that’s why I got this guide here to ease your burden!

No, this is not how your pc will look haha

deciding what your gaming pc should be made of can be a long, confusing and infuriating journey. I know this first-hand .i have built 1 budget pc before, this might or might not sound impressive, depending on who you are (i think it is impressive :O)… however, let me gain your trust by saying this: I have spent more time researching and consuming media regarding gaming pc builds than I would care (or dare) to know… just take my word, please, despite my limited professional resume (i have not mentioned everything though, but I’m getting bored…… let’s get started already! >I)

well; for my build I have focused on getting value for money, here is the list of the parts:

Phanteks P300 Eclipse

Mid-tower ATX case, great layout, big tempered glass window, full PSU shroud and comes with 1x 120mm fan.

ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming ATX Motherboard

Amd AM4 socket:  ready for 2nd and 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors to maximize connectivity and speed with up to two M. 2 drives. this is by all standards a modern motherboard, i fell in love with this combo (this and the processor), and so should you!

ASUS ROG Strix AMD Radeon RX 5700XT Overclocked 8G

8GB GDDR6 graphics card, 6 display outputs, PCI Express 4. 0, wonderfull 1440p and good 4K performance! this graphics card costs a lot, but you get so much from this newly released RX 5700XT (flagship graphics card from AMD with the new and long-awaited Navi architecture) that it will fill your stomach with butterflies when you start using it (and probably right now too, as you are reading this).

WD Blue 1TB SSD

1 Terra Byte high tech SSD, this should do the trick for this build, you absolutely need SSD (avoid hard drives) for the load speed and general quickness it provides in games, but if you are feeling crazy you can upgrade to an m.2 SSD. m.2 SSD’s have gigantic bandwidth that can (with a lot of tinkering) even function as ram! and of course, if you need more storage, just go for the higher storage alternatives of the same type of SSD in the amazon store link.

For this build, i tried to keep things hight quality, even if that means opting for some more exppensive components! it there was no option to be overly stingy in this build (dont take that the wrong way, its completly understandeble if you want a cheaper build).

One thing to keep in mind, though. While this is a complete PC build, you will not have everything you need to start playing out of the box. You will still need a keyboard, mouse, monitor, and an OS license. I would not recomend cheaping out on anny of these things, because they have alot to say about your gaming experience for a rellatively little price, i will not be recomending annything spesific here, but i might write about this in the future, in another post. Until then, you can search on the internet as there are many good guides there!

well, that concludes my first post with actual effort put into it, hope you liked it. and earlier when i said that i have only built 1 PC, if i contunue down this line of posts and i have suficent funding, i will build more PC’s for sure!
