Budget gaming PCs are super popular, but are you actually causing yourself more harm than good when you shop for as cheap as possible?

If you only have $400 dollars for a pc then you cant exactly spend more.

I've always thought 600 dollars is the price you want to try not to dip under if you're buying brand new.

For heavy gaming, just dont skimp on the mobo.

If anyone is looking at this in mid july 2019, here's some quick start ideas for both intel and amd starting at $600 and ranging to $900. Operating system cost NOT included. Intel $600: Check out this Idea List on Amazon: 1080p Intel build with potential to upgrade by Bill Bollinger a.co/68gZVsX AMD $600: Check out this Idea List on Amazon: AMD Build 1080p Gaming by Bill Bollinger a.co/19BJmuh Note:for the AMD $600 build, I realize you can remove the rx570 and just use the apu, hiwever, i wanted to make it as comparable as poosible, and it meets the price point, with both having onboard graphics backups, however the amd apu is obviously superior in that respect. Amd $900: Check out this Idea List on Amazon: Ryzen 5 $900 build July 2019 by Bill Bollinger a.co/glFiLSZ Notes: the 240gb ssd is meant for a boot drive and the 500gb m.2 as you game/large storage drive. Again, the 3400g is a great $150 middle ground between the jump to the $200 3600 or simplicity of the 3200g, with the added back up of an apu for the graphics card. Intel $900: Check out this Idea List on Amazon: Intel july 2019 $900 gaming pc by Bill Bollinger a.co/3M63Paf In order to kit nearly the exact same price, I went for the i5 9400f 6 core with no onboard graphics, with generally the same setup for the rest of the build as the amd build.

Watching this vid makes me feel much better about my budget build. Mobo B450m, 2 ram slots. 1 8gb 2666 stick. Used rx580 ($100). Ryzen 2200g. 530watt raidmax hybrid PSU. Cheap case with 2 140mm fans. 240g ssd, 1tb hdd. All told, less than $500, easy upgrade path. Its almost like i actually paid attention to you, linus, bitwit and such over the past year 😆 . I upgraded from a 1st gen i3 and gtx 460, 2010 alienware. I must admit i did get my money's worth outta than big glowy box

I didnt have a big budget but i made a 200-250$ pc build gets 30-60 fps 1080p and honestly aint too bad. Its outdated but if i get a better gpu i can potentially get 80+ frames. Also spemt another 150$ on am old pc my mom had to upgrade it. Now that ppc isnt ment for gamming but it sure as hell great for home use. Like yt, bills, web surf, and etc. So all in all you can make a decent pc for cheap, BUT fkr gamming you should invest more money into a mid ground 500-1k build so you can a better expirience and be combatible with future games/parts. This 200-250$ build keeps up with modern games, BUT i know very soon, maybe in 2+years time, itll be a dinosuar and only run older games. For right now im happy with the preformance. I am not expecting to play newer games on this pc. I just want to play games in general at a decent speed and rez. I love the wacky free steam games, alomg with alphas for small dev games. And that is exactly what im using this pc for. When i get a higher budget im deff gettign a 1k set up for everything i can throw at it.

Don't count ram speed out, know a guy that didn't put on XMP on his 3200mhz memory so they ran at 2133mhz i think he said, his cpu was 9900K and a RTX2080Ti on that, he had lag in games, after he changed to XMP his framrate went up a little but most important everything was lag free, AMD benefits even more than Intel to buy at least 3000mhz memory, 3000-3400mhz is the sweetspot and anything after that you don't get anything worth the money. 3200mhz memory cost like 10$ more than 2666mhz.

A budget build isn't about saving money. It's about working with the capital you've got. People know it'll cost more in the longrun but that's the price you pay for playing a few games now rather than waiting for years.

dunno about the mobo... upgrade for me means upgrade (swap) cpu, vga or ram... so on a cheaper one i still can do it, so that msi is actually what you need....

my advice to anyone wanting to build a PC. dont worry about Ray tracing. its a new thing so you arent going to get much more detail with it and its a resource whore. wait 5 years until its been refined and costs less then worry about it

Hey I have a question. Recently I built Gigabyte z390 Aorus elite with i5 9600k processor with 16 GB G. Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 3200 MHZ RAM. There are two Power connectors on my board. 2 x 2 and 2 x 4. When I plug power to 2 x 4 my machine does not boot. But, when I simply plug 2 x 2 i.e. CPU power, it boots. My GPU is GTX 950. Please help me out what would be the reason. Thank you!

Dude, just grab a i5 3470 or i7 2600 prebuilt on ebay for $150, a SSD for $20, hard drive for $40, 500w psu for $40, used rx480/580, and a $30 case.

This is why you plan out your build thoroughly and follow through no matter what. Unless the item does not work from the beginning, that is. Second guessing really can kill your overall end build. Lol.

This video actually validated everything I have ever said about building a "Budget" build. Also if your plan is to do small/moderate upgrades as you go get an AMD motherboard so when it comes time to upgrade your cpu you don't need to upgrade the mobo too, just update the BIOS and away you go.

I use a PCI slot for a Firewire card. I like my M-Audio 1418 audio interface. I would choose a board with a PCI slot over one that didn't.

you just can't get the rush of overclocking like you did in core 2 duo times. 1.86 ghz intel 3.2 ghz? No problem! :D Also if you choose ryzen build, forget about single channel ram build. You'll be shocked when you see you could have had 40% more fps if you chose a ram kit in dual.

I once was stupid enough to buy a gigabyte budget board. Computer kept on randomly crashing. People kept on saying stupid stuff like "Check you memory.", "Do you update your drivers.", "Have you tried a clean install?, etc. Turns out the motherboard couldn't handle the graphics card even though they said it could. Changed the motherboard and kept all the other parts. No more problems. Never Gigabyte. Never again.
