Everyone wants to play games in the right settings with the best performance. However, Most of the people can’t spend a fortune on a good gaming PC.

Then for those people, Budget PC build of Gaming comes in. In today’s article, we are going to show you potentially good Gaming build that you can make without spending so much on it.

System Unit

System Unit

Starting off with the System Unit. I would recommend spending your 70% budget on System Unit. That’s because for external devices you can easily upgrade them as compared to internal parts.


We’ll start with the CPU. For this build, we are going to use an Intel Core i5 6600k Skylake processor, which has the potential for overclocking. Furthermore, this processor can be paired with many good GPUs without any bottleneck.

Intel Core i5 6600k is a 6th generation processor with a processor base frequency of 3.50 GHz. However, it can be easily overclocked to 3.90 GHz to 4.0 GHz. It has four cores and four threads, and the cache memory of 6 MB. Furthermore, It uses 14nm semiconductor technology.

Intel Core i5 6600k sets a fine line between high-end CPUs and low-end CPUs. And you can get this processor for almost $200 on Amazon or if you are planning to get a used one then you can get a used one for around $100 on eBay.


The motherboards that work the best for Intel Core i5 6th Generation or 7th Generation are LGA 1151 Motherboard. LGA 1151 motherboards can run I5 6600-k efficiently without any problem. Furthermore, It can efficiently run most of the high-end GPUs without any problem.

Now, Motherboards come in a very different category. It would help if you only looked for LGA 1151 motherboards that support the 6th Gen and 7th Gen of Intel Core processor. And in these motherboards, you’ll have to choose between its form factor.

Motherboards are also categorized in Its form factor, They are “ATX”, “Mini-ATX”, “Micro-ATX”, and so on. You’ll have to decide which one you going with because in accordance with that you’ll choose a case for your PC.

LGA 1151 motherboards mostly come with DDR4 support for RAMs, so you don’t have to worry in the field.

PC Case

The PC case is a cabinet in which all your computer components are present. And I would recommend you to get a PC case that is budget-friendly.

Now choosing a PC case is up to you. It depends upon the motherboard you are choosing. If you are going with ATX motherboard then get an ATX case, and if you are planning to get a Mini-ATX mobo then get a Mini-ATX case

Power Supply

For this build, You should have at least 550 Watt power supply. Furthermore, I would recommend that you get a 550 Watt 80+ Gold Unit power supply.

Because it will reduce your chances of having any bottleneck, with your Graphics Card, or CPU. For this build, The power supply that I recommend is Antec Earthwatts Gold Pro EA550G. It is a 550 Watt with 80 plus gold.


For Ram, I would recommend getting at least 8 GB of DDR4 RAM. Check if your motherboard supports RAM overclocking, then get a 3200 or above Frequency RAM for your build. Trust me it would save you a lot of trouble.

For storage devices, You should get 500 GB M.2. SSD paired with 2 TB (or 1 TB) Hard Drive. You can install your operating system and your useful applications or games in your M.2. SSD and your less important stuff in your Hard Disk Drive.


For GPU, I would say that go with an AMD graphics card because they are cheap. If you are tight on a budget then you should definitely go with AMD.

For this Build, I would recommend you to get AMD RX 570 RS XXX Edition. It is a DX12 GPU with 8 gigs of memory and GDDR5 supported.

This graphics card works well when paired with Intel Core i5 6600k and that makes it the best budget choice here. Also with this graphics card, You can play AAA games on Medium to High settings on 1080p with 60 FPS easily.

Display Unit

Display Unit

For the display unit, If you are very tight on budget then go with an LCD, otherwise, I would highly recommend getting a LED.

If you want options, then you can have a look at the Acer SB220Q bi. It’s a 1080p LED with 144hz supported and gives HDMI and DVI port for connectivity. However, you’ll have to compromise on its size, as it is a 21.5 Inches LED (measured diagonally).

Also for connectivity, always try to use HDMI cable. Because it can boost your performance as compared to a DVI one.

Keyboard and Mouse

Gaming Keyboard and Mouse

Since this is a budget build, therefore, I would say that go with a Keyboard and Mouse combo under the $50 mark. You can get a good mechanical keyboard and a high DPI mouse in this range.

For gaming, A mechanical keyboard and High DPI mouse is a must. However, in some cases, it can depend upon the user itself.


Gaming Headset

For headphones, Get a good wired gaming headphone under the $50 mark. In a tight budget, you should get a headset with good microphone quality. And not spend extra on a separate microphone.

Headphones can play a role in improving your gaming experience, especially in competitive gaming. With good positional accuracy, you’ll be able to locate your opponents quite easily.

Therefore, I would recommend getting a good headphone that suits your needs


In conclusion, I would say that everyone should get a good gaming PC. However, everyone should spend money carefully. Because money is hard to earn. Here is a quick recap.
