Best Gaming PC Build Under $600 in 2020 (RIP CONSOLE)

Best Gaming PC Build Under 600 Budget Builds

If you’re looking for a 1080p gaming machine that showcases decent aesthetics, great cooling, and comes to shelves at a very affordable price point then look no further. Our best custom build PC for $600 has it all. We will be showcases two builds, one AMD and one Intel, in this guide and both will be designed with excellent gaming performance and multi-tasking functionality in mind. The $600 custom build starts to breach the gap between budget and high-end price points, but don’t let that put you off, this build is still extremely affordable. Let’s take a look at the builds and what they have to offer.

Our $600 Budget Gaming PC Build

Check out our build video below, one of our latest build guides for our $600 gaming PC.

Build Overview

In the following guide, we will be recommending what we believe is the best gaming PC for under $600 and exactly what is needed to take it from a bunch of hardware components to a fully operating gaming rig. We update our builds regularly when new and improved hardware options become available to ensure the absolute best products are being recommended. Before we look at the hardware though, let’s quickly go over what you can expect from this PC in regards to performance and features. Furthermore, let’s take a brief look at what separates our build and what compromises had to be made to ensure we got the highest performance out of the system.

Budget – Like all our builds, the first, and potentially most important criteria is to recommend a PC part list that sticks within the allotted budget. For this build, that was $600. Even though that sounds pretty generous, we always try and maximize the performance ability of each build by equipping them with the best hardware available. Sometimes that means compromises need to be made along the way. For us, that became a feature of this build when we decided to introduce the RX 590 GPU. The graphics card swallows a large portion of the budget meaning we had to reduce the budget in other areas such as the case and PSU. Luckily, these areas don’t have a huge impact on gaming performance so we still had a very powerful build.

Performance – For many, this is the most important aspect of a custom build. Once you’ve considered the price of a PC, the next thing you consider is how powerful that build is and whether or not it’s worth the money.

For those wondering what we mean by power, we’re referencing the PC’s performance power.

Performance power can come in many forms but for the most part, we’re talking about in-game performance or the PC’s ability to handle heavy workload tasks. This build has a superb ability to handle workload tasks. Our build has been equipped with a rapid SSD storage solution so you won’t be waiting around for your PC to boot or games to load. Overall, we’re extremely happy with the performance of our $600 custom PC.

AMD Vs Intel – You might be wondering why we've recommended an AMD build? The Intel build is slightly more expensive, and that’s because Intel products have a slightly higher market price at the time of writing this. From a performance standpoint, an Intel build at this budget would perform marginally better in gaming, however, for a complete PC system for both gaming and multi-purpose at this price point, AMD comes out on top.

One thing worth mentioning whilst we’re talking about AMD Vs Intel is upgradability. Right now, AMD is a much more forgiving brand if you want to upgrade your PC down the road. AMD has kept the same chipset for 3 generations now meaning their CPUs are backward compatible with older-gen motherboards. The same can not be said for Intel. Just keep that in mind when you’re looking at building a PC, apart from that, they’re both fantastic options for most gaming scenarios.

How We Choose the PC Components

Our team has years of experience behind them building PCs for a range of needs and budgets. All this knowledge combined with hours of research, user feedback, and onsite benchmarking is what goes into choosing the best components for our builds.

We look for value for money, how the components perform together and focus on gamer’s needs to make sure our builds are the best your budget can buy.

We build all these PC’s ourselves, in house, so trust us when we say we want to make them as good as possible. We actually use all these builds ourselves day-to-day in the WePC offices.

How We Test the PC Components

We build each of our selected PC’s from scratch to make sure all the parts we recommend work well together, fit into the selected case, and provide the best performance possible for the price range.

Once built, the PC’s are used in the office for everyday work as well as a range of games from light to heavy-duty. While we test, we also run benchmarking tests to see how well our builds perform, all while keeping an eye on the temperature of the components themselves.

We know how much some of our readers enjoy overclocking their PC’s, so we made sure to test that out too. So, you can feel safe knowing that these machines can be pushed beyond their basic capabilities. But, please make sure you know how to overclock before trying to over-task your builds.

NOTE: Due to the ongoing effects of the global coronavirus pandemic, some retailers are experiencing stock issues. WePC constantly updates our pages to reflect current availability, so if the PC or part you want shows as out of stock, check back later or check out these alternatives.

Build Details

cpu
  • AMD Ryzen 5 2600 6-Core Processor

    AMD Ryzen 5 2600 6-Core Processor

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 is the champion of the budget AMD CPUs and makes putting a cheap PC together a lot easier. Thanks to the arrival of AMD’s impressive Ryzen 5000 range, the highly regarded Ryzen 5 2600 has dropped even further in price. Even though the 3600 offers a 20% increase in performance power, we weren’t able to fit it into this tight budget. The 2600 still offers 6 cores/12 threads and comes with a base clock speed of 3.4GHz and a boost clock speed of 3.9GHz. This should be more than enough to handle most games at 1080p and will churn through med-high demanding workloads. You won’t be running into bottleneck issues anytime soon either, the processor pairs perfectly with both the RAM and the GPU for a powerful all-round gaming machine.

gpu
  • XFX Radeon RX 580 GTS XXX Edition

    XFX Radeon RX 580 GTS XXX Edition

The XFX Radeon RX 580 will be more than enough for 1080p gaming. Performance-wise it destroys both the GTX 1060 3GB and GTX 1060 6GB. In this price range, the RX 580 pretty much dominates the competition, and the value of this card shows it. Our Best Graphics Cards article is a perfect place to start, however, if you’re looking for even more graphical power.

ssd
  • Silicon Power 512GB SSD

    Silicon Power 512GB SSD

A Solid-state drive is an essential hardware component and we highly recommend installing your OS onto it (alternatively, you could use your SSD as a cache). This is because SSD’s offer huge performance increases for desktop usage and boot-times, alongside much faster loading times in games. This SSD has a 512GB capacity giving you ample room for your media files and games.

ram
  • OLOy DDR4 RAM 16GB (2x8GB) 3200 MHz

    OLOy DDR4 RAM 16GB (2x8GB) 3200 MHz

OLOy DDR4 RAM 16GB RAM is a staple across our builds and for good reason. It not only offers very high-performing memory but it also comes at a price point that is both affordable and competitive. We’ve opted for 16GB of DDR4 3200MHz RAM in our $600 to make sure it has enough power to play the most demanding AAA game titles.

psu
  • Thermaltake Smart 500W

    Thermaltake Smart 500W

At this price point, compromises need to be made to ensure the performance of the build meets our requirements. In the $600 build, we managed to squeeze a 500W non-modular PSU into the budget. Cable management should be more than achievable thanks to the case used in this build. Here’s a comprehensive list of our best gaming power supplies.

mobo
  • ASRock B450M PRO4

    ASRock B450M PRO4

Not only is this a solid motherboard for the price but it also supports 1st/2nd/3rd Gen AMD CPUs (without a BIOS update) meaning there will be no issue upgrading your build further down the road. It also accommodates up to 3200MHz memory as well, meaning you should be able to find the sweet spot for Ryzen/memory partnership. The motherboard doesn’t really impact gaming performance too drastically but it is important to have a reliable and stable board that can support your components. That is exactly what this board offers. It might not be the best motherboard available, but for the price, you’ll do well to find anything more suited.

case
  • Zalman S2 Mid ATX Tower

    Zalman S2 Mid ATX Tower

The Zalman S2 Mid ATX Tower Case has been custom designed to keep your system cool straight out-of-the-box and is one of the best cases we recommend for this budget, thanks to its great build quality and price point. The case features an aesthetically pleasing design and has adequate airflow to keep even higher-end builds relatively cool, with an included 120mm fan pre-installed. It also gives you enough space for custom cooling and extra hardware if you choose to upgrade down the line.

Things To Consider

By now you should have a pretty good idea of which build best suits your gaming needs, furthermore, you might be starting to consider areas of the build that might impact your gaming experience when you start using it. For that reason, we’ve decided to put together this short list of key areas we feel need considering before tackling a custom PC build. By considering these areas you’ll ensure the build is perfect for your needs.

So, let’s waste no further time and look at the key areas of this build.

Budget

We've already touched upon budget near the start of the article, but something we didn't discuss was the correlation between a PC's budget and the performance it can provide. Almost every build has a different level of performance ability, therefore, choosing the right PC for your needs should start with its price. We had a budget of $600 and we believe we've extracted the maximum amount of performance available at this price point. Our build has the ability to provide an immersive gaming experience at 1080p over the most popular AAA game titles. That's over 60FPS in most scenarios. However, if you're looking for a PC to smash 4k games, VR, and multi-tasking extremely heavy workloads all at the same time, you might want to consider one of our premium builds.

Upgradability & Future-Proofing

One of the most important areas to consider before purchasing a custom build is upgradability and future-proofing. You don't want to find yourself in a situation where upgrading your build is extremely difficult. Luckily, we've already thought ahead for you. The components we've equipped on our build is open to more storage, faster RAM, larger GPUs, and even better CPUs. That being said, this build should last you a good few years before you need to start looking at any upgrades.

Overclocking

Overclocking, who doesn't love getting extra performance power out of their build at no extra cost? It's a great thing overclocking, but for those that aren't fully up-to-speed, be aware that the wrong hardware could end in catastrophic consequences. If you are looking to overclock your build you need to be aware of a few key areas. One is cooling. Both our build comes with a stock cooler which should allow for a small amount of overclocking. If you're looking to push your CPU then I would highly recommend a much more powerful cooling solution.

Ease of Build

A first-time builder should always consider how easy a custom build is to assemble. Some projects can be much more strenuous than others. Our build makes use of the Aerocool Cylon PC case which is very forgiving for rookie builders. It comes with a PSU shroud which automatically makes life a bit easier, and cable management is fairly straight forward as well. A lot of people don't really consider static charges an issue, but for those that do, we've put together this handy anti-static equipment article to show you exactly how to use it. It's also worth mentioning that each build comes with its own stock cooler which already includes thermal paste. However, if you're looking for a premium thermal paste then we've got you covered here.

Non-gaming Performance

So, we've already established that our build can handle gaming very well. But, how does it operate in other areas such as multi-tasking and heavy workload scenarios? The answer is pretty good. The AMD chip is much more suited to multi-tasking and workload tasks. This is thanks to the multi-threaded nature of the chip. It's certainly an area that should be considered pre-purchase because a lot of budget level builds won't handle heavy workloads too well.

Aesthetics

Finally, we come to aesthetics. This is usually the area that gets the least attention when building a budget level build, and that's because aesthetically pleasing hardware usually comes with a pretty steep price increase attached to them. That being said, we still managed to equip this build with a pretty attractive case with tempered glass. If you want to increase the aesthetic appeal of your build we think RGB fans and lighting strips can really pimp a PC's look.

Calculating The PSU Wattage

Making sure your PSU provides the correct amount of wattage to your custom build PC is an essential part of the build process. For that reason, we've created a handy PSU calculator which will work out exactly what PSU wattage your components require - no matter how many changes you make.

What games can this PC run?

In this section, we’re going to tell you how this game should be able to run your favorite games.

  • Fortnite - 1080p will be a breeze with this setup, thanks to the included RX 580 GPU. However, 1440p may not be as easy to get running, and may require more significant compromises in settings to achieve 60 FPS.
  • PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds - PUBG should be playable at 1080p high or max settings, but 1440p isn’t going to happen above medium settings. The CPU may actually end up being a slight bottleneck as well.
  • Monster Hunter: World -  MHW should be easily playable at 1080p and high settings with this PC build, but 1440p will require some compromises to settings.
  • League of Legends - League is lightweight and dependable as always, so pushing 1080p @ 144hz shouldn’t be an issue here. 1440p should be playable, too.
  • Dota 2 - See above.
  • Overwatch - 1440p60 at high settings should be achievable, but may require a few settings to be turned down. 1080p at max should push over 100 FPS, even more if you turn down some settings.
  • Rainbow Six: Siege - Siege should be playable at 1440p, but due to the weaker CPU in this build you may need to turn down the settings to medium to maintain 60 FPS. 1080p won’t be a problem, though.
  • Warframe - Warframe runs excellently at both 1080p and 1440p, and shouldn’t require any major compromises at either resolution.
  • Grand Theft Auto V - GTA V should allow you to push it to 1440p and 60FPS at medium settings, but if you want prettier graphics you may want to run it down to 1080p.
  • Team Fortress 2 - TF2 is CPU-centric, so don’t expect the i3 to push super-high frames in this title without a performance config. However, your general performance should be just fine, even at 1440p.

Prebuilt Gaming PC Under $600

Most gamers usually opt to build their own computer since it’s much more cost-effective, often with savings in the hundreds! That being said, not everyone is able to build their own machine. For those that don’t have the time or the confidence to tackle this custom build project, we’ve come up with a list of the best-prebuilt gaming PCs around $600.

Upgrade Path

By now you should have a pretty good idea of whether or not this build is right for you and your needs. However, if you aren’t quite impressed by the performance power of this build, we’ve decided to create these upgrade paths which should improve performance exponentially.

All upgrades have been considered based on the performance and budget of the custom build. Let’s waste no further time and dive into the upgrades.

NOTE: These will raise the price of the build!

cpu

The Ryzen 7 2700X isn’t just a step up in performance, it’s an increase across the board. With 2 extra cores and 4 extra threads, this CPU can handle almost anything thrown at it and is a significant upgrade for this stellar build. This CPU also features an RGB stock cooler that should do a decent enough job of keeping the CPU at a stable temperature. If you’re looking for a serious performance boost then skip the Ryzen 7 2700 and go straight for the X. It also has a decent overclocking headspace as well.

Operating System & Peripherals

Building your PC doesn’t end there. If you want to really make the build more worthwhile in terms of money and performance, you should consider getting the following peripheral picks.

NOTE: These will raise the price of the build!

Operating System

When it comes to operating systems, there’s only one contender for me, and that’s Windows. Well, Windows 10 specifically. This product might add a bit to the overall price, but it allows you to use your new gaming rig to its maximum potential. There are other solutions out there, however, there is no alternative when it comes to a gaming rig. Need Windows 10 in DVD format? Don’t worry, we have you covered.

Windows 10

Windows 10

Linux is free but has less compatibility with games and certain Windows apps that you may find an inconvenience. Buying a Windows 10 OS, on the other hand, adds a good $80 to the cost of a rig, but it’s widely supported by all PC gaming titles. It’s probably what you’re most familiar with, too. Here is Windows 10 in DVD format for those still using DVD ROM’s.

Mouse and Keyboard

It should be no secret that the right gaming mouse and keyboard can be the difference between winning and losing. There’s a reason why pro esports players only use the best around. For that reason, we’ve outlined what we believe are the best, and most suited peripherals for any budding gamer looking to get the edge over their competition.

Razer Deathadder v2

Razer Deathadder v2

When it comes to mice you really have 2 main options, Wired or wireless.

If you want to use an ethernet cable, just go ahead and order Mediabridge Ethernet cable. Retail ethernet cables are really expensive, but by ordering them online, you can get 25ft cables for a few bucks.

Building Tips

If this is your first time building a PC, or it’s been awhile and you’re feeling rusty, then make sure you utilize the great information that’s available so that both you and your PC are safe.

In fact, we’ve compiled a list of common mistakes newbie PC builders should avoid as well as questions you might have when building a PC to iron out any lapse in your knowledge.

Install OS Via USB

Investing in an optical drive in 2017 is honestly not worth it. (Take it from me-- I made the same mistake when I built my rig!) Unless you’re shelling extra for a Blu-Ray player, chances are you aren’t going to use your PC’s optical drive after you’ve finished building the machine and installing the OS for the first time.

This is why we recommend downloading your OS via USB. Any necessary drivers for a program or device can typically and conveniently be found online. So, instead of dropping an extra $20 on the drive and another extra $20 on actually having a disc delivered to you, just install your OS via USB.

All versions of Windows and Linux can be installed with a USB drive. And while you will need a separate PC to turn your USB drive into an installer, it’s still much smarter than paying extra for physical media.

If you’re buying Windows, we recommend buying Windows 10. Then, with the help of a 4+ GB USB drive and the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool you will be set.

If you were considering using Linux, then you can find reliable distributions at: UNetbootin or Rufus. Just keep in mind that Linux does not support most games and other common software.

Invest In Antistatic Equipment

Perhaps most importantly, make sure you don’t short out any of your components with electric discharge. Investing in an anti-static mat or anti-static wristband will go a long way toward preventing this. And if you don’t know how to use the wristband, then don’t worry: we made a guide detailing how to properly use an anti-static wristband!

If, for some reason, you can’t acquire these, a suitable alternative is ensuring that you’re grounded by regularly touching grounded metal objects, but it can be easy to forget and potentially, even if only rarely, costly if you do.

Watch Our PC Building Guide Video

PC building can be an initially daunting task, especially if you’ve never done it before. However, standoff screws aside, it’s honestly a pretty easy, painless experience.

If you are unsure about what to do, it’s a good idea to take a look at some building guides for visual assistance first. Check out our very own PC building guide above.

You’ll also want to look at the manuals for your components during the build process to ensure you are doing everything to specification. Your first build session can potentially take a few hours largely due to inexperience. However, once you get the hang of it, you’ll see that time start dropping fairly quickly.

Our how to build a PC guide is also a quality resource. Whether you’re a first time builder or a veteran, the easy to use steps help you visualize and keep track of what you’re doing. This guide includes everything from planning out your budget to installing the drivers and even has some tips on how to safely maintain your computer through years of usage.

Closing Thoughts

There you have it, our comprehensive guide to the best custom PC for under $600. This build should have everything a budding gamer needs to get them onto the battlefield in 1080p and for a few years to come. Our build showcases superb value for money and offers excellent performance as well. We've even recommended a prebuild option for those who don't feel up to tackling this project.

    would there be a big difference if i swapped the Ryzen 3 3200g, instead of the current ryzen 5?

  2. Avatar Korach says:

    Hello there. First time builder. One thing I don’t understand is your PSU is a 500W and your PSU calculator says this build uses 441W. But on Amazon, it says the GPU requires at minimal 500W. Wouldn’t it mean it would require more than 500W for an entire build?

  3. Avatar Benjamin Hasecke says:

    So I am very new to PC and pretty much know nothing. So with this build is there anything I need to buy besides a mouse, keyboard, mousepad etc.? Mainly, was windows 10 included in the price for this build or is that a separate purchase?

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      You can download and install Windows for free. However, if you want to activate it, you will need to purchase a copy for this PC

    i was wondering if i can use a different power supply, i’m new in this PC stuff so i was wondering which other power supply would work

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      As long as it’s a normal form PSU, around 500W, you should be fine swapping them out.

  5. Avatar *** says:

    MATREXX 30 is not compatible with the build. Bought the case and GPU doesnt fit. Pcpartspicker also confirms this.

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      After inspection, you’re quite right – our apologies. We have used other iterations of the Deepcool case in the past and never had any issues. Did not consider the hard drive tray interfering with the GPU. Finding a suitable replacement now.

    Hi, can this computer stream lower cpu games such as hollow knight to twitch or youtube? Also would the footage captured from this pc be good or should i invest in a capture card as well? Thanks!

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      You’d probably get away with it, just. For me, a streaming build will cost you closer to $800. that said, the $600 will do the job, just not as efficiently. If you plan to use OBS the quality will be good.

    Just built this rig and very happy with it so far (about 1 hour in).

    I am getting a bit of a hum from one of the fans, I think the case fan but not entirely sure. I think that’s probably to be expected? Just wanted to see if that was normal, thanks!

    How well will this build run destiny 2?

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      Should be OK Diego, may have to tweak the settings slightly for optimized FPS

      1. Avatar Diego Gonzalez says:

        Do you think it will run destiny 2 with at least 80 FPS With decent looking settings?
        And what about valorant how well will it run that?

        1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

          Depends what you mean by decent. I mean, you should be able to push 80FPS on medium, which is definitely playable. As far as Valorant is concerned, this thing won’t have any problems running it.

    Hi, is there any problem if I go with the RX 590? Do I have to do some changes? Because the 580 is out of stock right now… Also if I go with the 590 do I need a cooler? I’m not going to do overclock

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      the 590 is a fine upgrade option for this build Bret. All GPUs come with their own coolers, you will not need additional fans.

  16. Avatar Bret says:

    Hi, would you recommend the Nvidia gtx 1650 super? Because the RX is out of stock in Amazon, or I just have to wait, If you recommend, is it necessary a better cooler?

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      If you go for the 1650 you will be seeing a small reduction in performance. You won’t need a better cooler though. The one that comes with CPU is absolutely fine.

    Where are the stand off screws are they in the case or do they come in a separate box with de case.

      I dont know what monitor i should buy for this build but it needs to be 200$ or less do you have recommendations? Also how does it work if you have 100 fps but a 144hz monitor will it look bad?

      1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

        It wouldn’t look bad no. It just wouldn’t be utilizing the full refresh rate that is available to that monitor. Realistically, you want to be aiming for the same FPS (if not more) as your monitors refresh rate, as a general rule of thumb.

  27. Avatar Primo says:

    Hi, I followed this article and built my RIg. The last rig I built was in 2006 with a EE2200 Intel CPU. Can you even imagine! Still runs, like molasses but none the less runs.

    Anyway so I ended up putting an XFX590 Fatboy into this which was a bad idea because it covered up my PCi-e slots. I’ll probably return it and go with the MSI Gaming Radeon RX 5700 XT . Will that give me room for the slot back? I won’t even really need it but I always like to have the option in case I do.

    Also I ended up using Crucial MX500 1TB 3d NAND sata for my OS and main storage. I also have a 2 TB WD 7200RPM 256 cache in there. I overlooked the SSD XPG SX8800 5012GB. Would I see a benefit using it instead? If I add it now what other option will it have. PC is up and running great. Now I just have to upgrade my slow ass internet. =)

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      Hi Primo. Hot damn! that is one smooth running chip. I always think about bringing out my old PC “the big rig” as I like to call it for a video. It would be hilarious looking at that thing again.
      Anyway. Yes, the Fatboy is fairly chunky that’s for sure. If you went for the reference 5700XT then you’d probably get away with it. the MSI is fairly chunky.
      You would see some improvements over the Crucial, but nothing groundbreaking. In real-world situations the difference is fairly minimal.
      Hope this helps!

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      Hi mate,
      You could certainly change this GPU for a GTX 1070 if you wanted. No additional hardware changes would be required. You could always play it safe and get a 600W PSU, but it isn’t 100% necessary.

    Is having Google on the SSD a good choice?

    1. Shaun Conroy Shaun Conroy says:

  44. Avatar PCEnthusiast says:

    Hello, Charlie Noon!
    Oh okay, didn’t check that; my apologies. Hope your Thursday is going well. Also, everything else than that HDD (in the upgrade path) are significantly more expensive. $400 – $600+ items, which seems pretty expensive with the original PC costing roughly $600.
    Would you guys recommend just doing the $1000 build instead of these upgrade(s)?
    Or even the $800?
    Thanks.

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      Hi PCEnthusiast, thanks for the kind words, it was a great day. God bless.
      We’ve upgrade hardware has been chosen as it showcases a real performance improvement. If we went for something a little less expensive, you wouldn’t see as much of a performance boost, then you start asking yourself whether or not it is worth the upgrade at all.
      I think the $800 build is a real nice one for the price, $1000 build would also showcase excellent performance gains over the $600. It’s really up to you. The $1000 build is set up for future upgrades as well.
      I hope this helps!

  45. Avatar PCEnthusiast says:

    Greetings!
    So, I feel like there is a contradiction in this, I am new to PC building and please correct me but this computer just has the SSD, storage-wise. Which is fine, but the SSD is only 480gb, and I notice on the top of the article you guys say this:
    “Storage. Don’t settle for anything less than 1TB. This should be more than enough to kick start your PC gaming and more.”
    So, what happened to not settling for anything less?
    Not trying to sound rude, or anything; I would love to get this cleared up. And I saw how you guy(s) said to store the OS and a few other things on the SSD, but where to store everything else?
    I am confused… I looked at every part.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      Hi PCEnthusiast. I hope you’re having a great Thursday.
      You’re technically right with what you say, however, due to the cost of the build fluctuating, the 1TB HDD is now part of the UPGRADE PATH.
      I appreciate what you are saying though and I’ll make some changes to the article so that is clear for other readers.

    Hi I’m just looking to play Rocket league, Minecraft, Overwatch, and EA sports games.
    1.I’m not looking to overclock the pc so are there any changes I could make to make the build cheaper.
    2.Would the Rx 580 work as a cheaper replacement
    Also would the Rx 580 run the games listed above at 100+ fps at 1080
    3.What all should I download onto the ssd and what goes on the hdd.
    4. How long do you think this build would last?

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      You could certainly tweak this build to make it cheaper and still achieve 100FPS in the above games. If you changed the GPU to the 580 you would still get 100FPS on max settings at 1080p.
      You should use the SSD for your operating system and primary games. The rest of your media library should go on your HDD.
      Depends on what you mean by “last”. If you just play the above game, you could have this build for the next 5-10 years.

        Hi ZeEnforcer,
        You could definitely replace the GPU with a 1050Ti or 1060 but I’m not sure why you would want to. The 590 has much better performance than both of these cards.

        As for the case, the 590 would be a fine replacement if you wanted to go down that route.
        Hope this helped.

  48. Avatar TMX says:

    What are your thoughts on this case? I am thinking this will be my first build, the parts add up to a little over $630, and that is fine, also I know that I will have to get a tool kit and anti-static stuff. This case comes with a couple a fans preinstalled.

      1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

        Yeah, the link always helps :P.
        I’m not a HUGE fan of Rosewill cases personally, but that one is certainly OK for your needs and does come with out-the-box cooling. It should be a good little option.

    I have a slight issue with the thermal take case. I decided to go with the Radeon 570 GPU card but when i tried to install it, the top of the metal GPU slot in the case prevents me from pushing the GPU all the way into my motherboard. I checked the standoffs and they’re all aligned properly, so I have yet to figure out why the motherboard is either too low or the case is just bad and I should purchase another one.

      To answer your question(s):
      What monitor are you looking at? I do have some experience using the Ryzen 5 1600 CPU and the performance difference between the 2 isn’t huge. However, using a first gen Ryzen can be problematic down the line when you start to think about future upgrades.

    Hi there, I am looking at this setup for my first build, and I had a couple of questions. Sorry if they’re really basic or dumb questions, I have zero experience with this:

    1. I am looking to build a PC for a dual purpose: to play video games at a higher quality than a console (obviously) and to have a quality workstation when I work remotely from home. Will this build hold up for playing fairly simple games (mostly Rocket League) as well as adequately handle large data files between Excel and R?

    2. With question 1 in mind, would you recommend going for a higher build if I have the funds available?

    3. How does this build hold up if I wanted to use dual monitors?

    4. Does this only work with Ethernet ports? Is there a way I can enable WiFi if needed?

    5. How much prep should I spend reading up on building before I start?

    6. Are there additional parts needed for construction like screws or screwdrivers?

    Thank you so much, it is so helpful to have everything laid out like you guys have to make this process so much easier for beginners like me!

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      Hi Ryan, Don’t worry my friend, we’re happy to help!
      1. This computer is build to handle triple A game titles at 30+ FPS. It will handle Rocket League and excel files easily thanks to the multi-threaded nature of the CPU.
      2. Unless you want to play Battlefield V in ultra, you won’t be needing an upgrade anytime soon. Saying that however, it would always be advantageous, from a gaming point of view, to get the best GPU you can afford. GPU upgrade will see more performance gains IN GAMES than any other component.
      3. A dual monitor setup would work fine with this build.
      4. There are some great PCIe WiFi cards available which will enable wireless connectivity. If you want some recommendations, please ask :]
      5. If you have never built a PC before then I would highly recommend reading our how to build a PC page: http://dayaxa.com/how-to/build-a-gaming-pc/.Everything you need to know can be found in there. We will also be bringing out some in-depth, high detail videos very soon on PC building.
      6. Theres a great little toolkit available, you can find it on the build page, it has everything you need when building a PC.

      I hope this helps my friend! Feel free to ask any questions regarding building a PC or the parts themselves, we will happily answer the questions to the best of our ability :]

      Hi Mihailo,
      Did you buy these parts? The CPU & motherboard are none compatible. You wouldn’t require 650w PSU either.

    Thanks in advance

    1. Charlie Noon Charlie Noon says:

      As far as a PSU goes, I would recommend EVGA or Corsair Bronze rated or above.
      There are a tonne of 1TB hard drives available but if you want to play it safe go for the Seagate Barracuda!

    Hi! You got me with this article and I’m actually going to build my pc, I really liked everything, BUT..
    Is the MOBO really good, or is going to run another GPU if in the future I want to upgrade? Do you really recommend me that MOBO? Cause I don’t mind if I have to expend another 20 bucks as long as I have something better, also I read this doesn’t have Bluetooth and Wifi
    Thanks in advance

    1. Shaun Conroy Shaun Conroy says:

      Hi Javier, thanks for the comment. Did you go with the mobo in the end? we have updated this page and you can certainly upgrade the GPU if you wished to!

  84. Avatar Tony says:

    So I ended up buying this build. With the recent black Friday sales, I was able to get the entire build a little under $620 with tax. This included an upgrade of 16gb of RAM and an SSD (128gb). The only issue was the graphics card RX580 recommended at least a 500 watt PSU. This bundle listed on this site was 450 watts. I had to return it to get a 500-watt version. I’m just waiting for my case now and can’t wait to build it!

    1. Avatar Tony says:

      I see. Thanks. Also, you’ve mentioned that the case has a dual intake and and exhaust fan. The one you have linked only has an exhaust fan.

What do you reccomend?

    1. Avatar Alexander says:

      When I plug it into the graphics card I get no signal, but when I plug it into the mother board’s hdmi, I get the BIOS screen. Why wouldn’t the graphics card be working?

    I am hoping to run The Witcher 3 and this CPU is under the recommended requirement. The AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core is actually cheaper than the Ryzen 3 1300x. If you could elaborate on if this is a smart move and if i would need a different mother board that would be great thanks.

    1. Shaun Conroy Shaun Conroy says:

    Will this case work instead of the corsair case suggested? MasterBox Q300L mATX Case w/ Magnetic Design Dust Filter, Transparent Acrylic Side Panel, Air Flow Performance by Cooler Master.
    Also, will I need to purchase extra fans or will the ones in the case be enough?

    1. Shaun Conroy Shaun Conroy says:

      Hi Nick, thanks for the comment. This case will be fine and if you choose to go ahead with it I recommend buying an extra fan for the air intake at the front of the case.

    Hey! I’ve decided i’m going to switch to the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 with the Wraith Spire Cooler. I just wanted to ask you. Is this all compatible? with all the other parts you chose of course. Because I’m going to freak out if I buy $1000 worth of parts and accessories and none of them work with eachother. Please, please, pLeAsE double check if they work together. I really love your Computer builds and I hope your pc making career gets you far in life. thank you!

    1. Avatar colton says:

      they will all work 100 percent because ryzen is on the am4 platform (unless u buy threadripper) u might want some dual channel ram or a ssd probable the ram since your doing editing

      1. Avatar Juzel Albert Padilla says:

        Yes, colton is right and yeah, another 8GB of RAM to make use of the dual channel. Also, SSD for boost in speed 🙂 you’re well on your way to a decent editing machine

  96. Avatar Keblle says:

    Wait, in order to have a functioning gaming pc, don’t you need a CPU fan cooler?

    1. Avatar Juzel Albert Padilla says:

      Hello there, Keblle! Yes, that’s true. The Ryzen 3 1200 comes with a Wraith Stealth cooler and it does a pretty good job at keeping the temps low, even when gaming 🙂

  97. Avatar Knawt says:

    Hello! I really like the parts you used in this build, however the CPU is clearly not sufficient for edits I was planning to make in the future. Do you think something like the AMD Ryzen 5 1600 will be enough? please give me honest feedback. thank you! 😀

    1. Avatar Juzel Albert Padilla says:

      Hey there, Knawt! How’s it going? I wish I could tell you that the Ryzen 5 1600 is going to be enough but I don’t think it will cut it. For editing, we would recommend at least a Ryzen 7 1700. Our $1000 build and higher is what we recommend if you want a computer for editing.

      1. Avatar Knawt says:

        Hey man, thank you so much for the tips, do you think I should finalize, and just pick the ‘AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Processor with Wraith Spire LED Cooler?’

        1. Avatar Juzel Albert Padilla says:

          Since you’re going to be doing a lot of edits, I suggest you get the Ryzen 7 1700. The stock cooler with LED should do just fine unless you’re going to do serious overclocking with it 🙂 The 2TB Storage should give you enough space.

  98. Avatar colton says:

    so do you think that a 60hz monitor is enough or not ?

    1. Avatar Juzel Albert Padilla says:

      Hello, colton! How are you? A 60Hz monitor is more than enough with this rig. Games run at 1080p on max/ultra settings sit around 55-70FPS, depending on the game title/how optimized it is, etc.

    Motherboard: Asus a320m-k
    Ram: 8gb from crucial

    Hardrive:1tb hard drive
    Ssd:128 gb

    1. Avatar Juzel Albert Padilla says:

      Hi, Colton! How are you? This looks fine. The motherboard is compatible with the Ryzen 5 1500X. Adding a 128GB SSD should boost everything 😀 If you don’t mind me asking, are you planning to upgrade to a 16GB soon? Becuase if you’re going to stick with the 8GB for quite some time, I recommend you get 2x4GB RAM to take advantage of the dual channel technology, that’s like 10-15% boost.

      1. Avatar colton says:

        actually I found some dual channel ram for less and it was faster ddr4 ram on amazon I also went with a non OC motherboard saved me some cash and gave me 4 ram slots

      2. Avatar colton says:

        I don’t plan 2 over clock the base clock speeds are fine for me and since ram overclocking is well in the words of linus tech tips “trouble shooting ****”

      4. Avatar colton says:

        its 892$ with a monitor,mouse,speaker,anti-static wrist band (I already own a keyboard)
        also when u update the build I think u could get dual channel ram for less then the single stick
        please tell me if u think this is a good hhd http://www.amazon.com/HGST-IMSOURCING-HUA721010KLA330-SATA-3-5IN/dp/B0013DU7R4/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

        1. Avatar Juzel Albert Padilla says:

          Yes, dual channel is definitely great but we designed this build to be open for future improvements, a reason why we initially decided to go with only 1x8GB RAM to leave room for another 8GB soon as part of the upgrade

        2. Avatar Juzel Albert Padilla says:

          That HDD is “fine”. In fact, I have that one years ago and it’s really loud. And you’d see I’m telling the true by reading the reviews on Amazon.

      Hi Key! Yes, this system will be able to run Adobe After Effects but keep in mind that here at WePC, we personally recommend our $1000 builds and up if you are very serious with editing videos. Adobe After Effects is very CPU intensive and you’re definitely going to want a more powerful CPU than the Ryzen 3 we have in this build for best editing results.

      2. Also once I upgrade to the 1300x how do I go about switching it out is it just unscrew and the move the little lever thing that holds the cpu ?
      -Yes, just unscrew the 1200 via the lever and put the 1300x. There are YouTube videos you can find if you want to know how to properly install a processor.

    1. Avatar Juzel Albert Padilla says:

      Hi Colton! Our $600 dollar gaming PC can work without internet. However, if the applications or software you have requires internet to work, then I’m afraid you need to have access to the internet for it to work. This doesn’t come with a Windows 10 OS but you can get one and install it easily by following our OS Options and Recommended Peripherals section and then our Install OS Via USB section. 🙂

      While it’s fine, I personally don’t recommend it 🙂 you’re going to need a more powerful CPU for content creation. The Adobe Premiere Pro, especially – is heavily threaded. Here at WePC, we recommend getting the $1000 build if you want a rig for gaming and entry-level content creation and higher if you’re dead serious on content creation and rendering. 🙂

        Is this build compatible with GAMEMAX Power Supply 850W Fully Modular 80+ Gold?

    This building guide got me checking my wallet and bank account if I have enough money to order this straight away.

    I will surely have this at the back of my mind because I am currently thinking of getting a jailbreaked PS4, download PS4 games and play on that or I build a PC like this.

    Jailbreaked PS4 option is cheaper tho.

      Hi, Paul! While it’s true that Jailbreaking a PS4 is cheaper, you’ll be left out with the same hardware. This one, however, is future-proof – uses a Ryzen CPU and a GTX 1060 graphics card. Not to mention that it can be upgraded easily down the line. 🙂

        So, I can take out the GTX 1060 and Ryzen CPU at any time and upgrade? I would also want to include an SSD drive as a boot drive then have my main 2TB storage, I have a 128GB M2SSD already with me,

          yes very easily although unless u want a intel core i7 overclocked I wouldn’t think u would need to upgrade gpu.

      Can this build be used for streaming?

    cable management is easy with this case for a beginer?
    the system have any problem with temperature?
    the graphics card fan is noisy?
    the system is future proof and can last 10 years at least with upgrades or do u suggest to go on a more expensive build?

      Hello, geomaz!

      Here are the answers to your questions:
      1. We intended to use the Corsair Carbide Series 88R Case for this matter and it’s because it’s an entry-level chassis perfect for cable management. it’s specifically designed by the guys at Corsair to make cable management easy for beginners.
      2. There won’t be problems with temperatures as far as gaming is concerned and it’s likely that it will sit below 70 degrees Celsius (60-65), depending on how GPU-intensive the game is.
      3. These graphics cards have had updates since released in 2016 and problems of fans going loud has been ironed out ???? In the long run, we’d still recommend you get 2-4 120mm fans to make sure everything stays cool.
      4. Yes, it’s future proof – considering the Ryzen CPUs were just released.
      5. Do I suggest you go on a more expensive build? If your budget allows, why not? Personally, go with the $800 build if you can get it vs the $600 build. ????

      Are you going to be streaming, too? or just gaming?
