Let’s talk about the components required to make the Best Budget Gaming PC build in August and 2017 with Ryzen 3.
So, this is a completely new section that I am starting today and it will cover everything about the latest Gaming PC Builds with the latest and the time tested components.
Today we are going to create a build that will easily achieve 60 FPS in most of the current-gen games with some minor tweaks in graphic settings. The most important of the build is that it will suit most of the budget gamers who want a 1080p Gaming PC which can handle smooth Gaming experience without burning a very big hole in their pocket.
Let’s Start with the CPU
As the title says, I am going to use Ryzen 3 1200 for the CPU in this build. This is the best option for every budget gaming PC build as of day today. I watched so many videos and read a few reviews to reach to this conclusion that it easily beats the performances of the previous budget gaming CPUs including Intel i3 6100 and the Intel Pentium G4560. With the power of over clocking up to 3.9 GHz, it definitely has the potential to provide you the best gaming experience you want from a budget build. The best thing about over clocking Ryzen 3 is that it comes with Wrath Stealth cooler and you don’t need a separate CPU cooler for over clocking up to the above-mentioned frequency.
For the graphics, I think the GTX 1050ti is best for this budget build. I know that this card has become the choice of every Budget gamer but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t perform well. The performance of this card is just awesome and far better as compared to other alternatives in this price range including AMD RX 460. It is best suited for 1080p gaming and it has the required power to achieve 60 FPS in all the current gen games on medium settings. You may have to turn the settings to low to achieve the 60 FPS mark but in only a few games that aren’t optimized well for PCs.
Buy Now at Amazon
For the ram, I am using the Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz. I think choosing the time tested brand for the ram is appropriate. And with a decent 2400MHz at a price of only $73 is in my opinion is an excellent deal.
For motherboard there are a very few options available in the market for a budget build with Ryzen processors. But you don’t have to take stress I have selected the best out of those very few for you. So, the motherboard for this build is ASUS Prime B350M-A/CSM AMD Ryzen AM4 DDR4. Asus have always been a trusted brand when it comes to motherboard so we don’t have to worry about reliability of the product. This is going to cost you $69.
Keeping in mind that this is a budget build I am not going to use those high end SSDs because to keep them in our budget we will only get around just 128 gb of memory which is not enough for even two games. That’s why we will use WD Blue 1TB SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 RPM 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch Desktop Hard Drive. This will cost you $40 but if you can spend $27 more than you can get the 2TB version.
Case and Power Supply
For the case I have selected the Thermaltake Versa H15 SPCC Micro ATX Mini Tower and for the power supply we have EVGAs 450 Watt W1. This power supply is the Amazon’s best seller for the price range we are looking at.
So, this concludes our budget gaming PC build with the latest Ryzen 3 1200. I will regularly be making these kind of articles every once a week.
