Budget Gaming PC for Sub 30k or 600 USD

UPDATED

Since memory module prices soared up like hell, Bitcoin mining surged the demand for graphics cards, it’s nearly impossible to build a sub P25,000 gaming pc.

 

But don’t fret, we managed to squeeze the P30,000 budget on a decent 1080p gaming pc that we can get right now.

Without further ado, let’s  start with the parts that you can get: 

Processor:

So let’s tackle about the parts that we have chosen, building off on an AM4 platform is your best bang for the buck packing with the newest Zen architecture; the Ryzen 3, with 4 cores and 4 threads. It’s the cheapest Ryzen processor that you can get.

Memory:

Since memory modules are more expensive than before, we got a decent speed ddr4 ram from Kingston, decent memory speeds and looks surely will match your aesthetics.

Power Supply:

Power supply, the heart of your computer, without it, it will not run, the most vital part of your computer, it protects all the components from being a nasty fried hardware. We picked the M12ii-620 Evo from Seasonic since it has the best in its price range, and oh, it’s fully modular also.

 

SSD

Since SSD is a must buy now, at least 120gb is fine for your operating system storager. You’ll see the increase of your system definitely from bootup to the programs that you use so we added this as well.

Storage and PC Case:

Since this is very adaptable on your taste and needs you can get cheaper components from these. But we picked the WD Blue 1tb for your movies and games and Tecware F3 for the aesthetically clean looks of the case.
