If you take the shell out of the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One you would find that the parts are comparable to a budget gaming PC. If you’re not interested in platform-specific games like God of War or Halo, and you’re not sure you want to buy a gaming PC or console, then your best option is to simply create your own upgradeable one gaming pc.
Aside from the actual building process, it’s pretty easy to know how to throw together a gaming PC, you just have all of the basic necessary components, like a PC case, power supply, storage device, RAM, etc. Below is a look at all of them those that have hardware pieces and more,
with explanations of what you need to make your gaming PC as cheap but still
usable as possible.
EVGA – SuperNOVA G3 650 W 80+ Gold Certified
Fully Modular ATX Power Supply
$ 69.99 (After mail-in discount)
As you can see from the table above, the base
total comes out to $ 432.84. With mail-in discounts deducted, and several dollars
or more for shipping you’re looking to around $ 410 for your own DIY gaming PC.
Tip: There are many places to buy computer parts online, so if the links above are no longer valid, or you think you can get them cheaper elsewhere, consider looking for other places to buy the parts.
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G or “Raven Ridge” is one of
the few Ryzen chips to come with onboard graphics. Although the performance would be
much higher, with certain GPUs that put the onboard graphics, the
price drops significantly.
The Ryzen 3 2200G has integrated the Vega GPU. Although the “Vega” name is used, this doesn’t compare to their Dedicated Graphics Cards (Radeon RX, Vega 56, Radeon RX, Vega 65) when compared to NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 10 series gaming graphics cards.
I’ve also made a comparison between the Intel and AMD processors for low-end budget builds that should be read. AMD also released their new Ryzen 3000 processors which are another great option to watch for this scenario.
One of the most important components to
build a is the motherboard. Choosing a motherboard can be tricky. Not only are
there many different manufacturers, some don’t support some chipsets.
For this setup we decided on the B50M from MSI.
Inexpensive, yes, but this board is both reliable and easy to overclock. With
that said, however, we don’t suggest overclocking without doing a bit of
MSI B450M PRO-VDH-AM4-Micro-ATX-Mainboard is based on the AMD-B450 chipset, supports Ryzen processors with AM4 socket. We’re only given two of the four slots, but this board has the capacity to hold up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM at up to 3466 MHz when overclocked.
For storage, it is equipped with four SATA
III connectors and a single M. 2 slot that uses the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface for
speeds of up to 32 GB. While we don’t have a graphics card that builds on this, it
comes with a PCIe 3.0X16 slot for a graphics card. These come in
handy if at a later date you decide to upgrade to a dedicated graphics
A common myth is that the more RAM, the
better. The truth is that it really is a “candy spot” when it comes to the
amount and speed of RAM needed for gaming and everyday use.
For this setup we used dual 4 GB DDR4-2800
memories that add up to 8 GB of RAM. Anything less than the 8 GB could result
in stuttering, induced lay, and sharp drops in the frame rate. Many will say
16GB will be the new standard, but in our tests, it only showed a slight
increase compared to 8GB.
SSDs (solid state drives) are becoming the norm when it comes to storage. With less power consumption, faster boot-up speed and up to 30% faster file reading speed, the SSD is an easy choice over older mechanical hard drives.
You can, of course, replace it for a much larger SSD, but to save a few bucks, we ended up with 500GB. The disadvantage of a hard drive this size is that you may not be able to fit as many games as you want on it. Some games these days are upwards of 60 GB or more, which means after some, you will need something bigger.
One way around this is to install just
essentials games, or, of course, to cough up a few more dollars and buy a
1TB HDD for $ 50 or so. The most important thing is to keep your operating systems
and important files on the SSD for faster access times.
There are many options when it comes to
making your decision a case. For this project we went with the Cooler Master Q300L
For the price, it’s a breeze: easy
cable management, spacious design, and even an adjustable top handle.
Yes, 650W is a bit of an overkill for a power
supply on this build. However, we’re not just for now, but also in
the future, and if you decide on a graphics card later, you’ll be glad you
chose to spend a few extra bucks on your power supply.
One of the many advantages of the SuperNOVA-650G3
from EVGA is that it is fully modular, which means you can remove all unnecessary
wires, making wire management easier.
Another important factor is the 80 Plus Gold
standard rating, which means that
the power supply is rated for at least 87% efficiency at 20% load, 90% at 50% load,
and 87% at 100% load.
This pc is not supposed to blow up heads; it’s for the budget-friendly builder. Sure, if you’re willing to toss an extra hundred dollars, you can get a cheaper graphics card. If so, we recommend
the RX-580 for around $ 119 or the GTX 1050 for $ 125.
It’s also important to mention that if this is your first build, make sure you do your research on how to build. There are plenty of good step-by-step guides on YouTube
and other websites.
