Budget-Level Builds

If this is your first build, you should check out my FAQ and Walkthrough first.

“Budget” builds are best suited for MOBAs like DOTA2 or LoL, or competitive shooters like CS:GO / Overwatch. That doesn’t mean they can’t handle AAA gaming, though, because they’ll still outperform their console counter-parts!

These builds come with the basic components you’re going to need to get up and running, including:
  • Case
  • Motherboard
  • Processor
  • Graphics Card
  • RAM
  • Storage
  • Power Supply

With that said, you will still need an operating system, a mouse, keyboard, a monitor, and some kind of audio. Generally speaking, if you have none of the above, you will be looking at another $400 or thereabouts, just something to keep in mind.

If you have any questions about any of these builds, just ask me in the associated comment section!
