Budget / Entry Level Gaming Desktops (500-450) [Fixed!]

First topic that I think that would help some people with budgets but there's a YouTuber that does cheaper builds but you need to buy the windows keys / license to get it activated but this is my two picks of cheap entry level gaming prebuilds with upgradability under $500-$450!


The order is from Highest Price To Lowest

Prebuilts are usually not worth the money, just the ease of having it prebuilt. You can take this build then throw in a used GPU like a GTX770/960/970, or R9 390/Fury. All of that will destroy a GT 1030, and the first one dorms even have a GPU. You can get a 750 Ti or 760 probably for like $50-60 if you really need to save money. (Might have to swap the SSD out for a HDD, but I’d rather have a better GPU than an SSD).

My Build, v2.1 --- CPU: i7-8700K @ 5.2GHz/1.288v || MoBo: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E Gaming || RAM: 4x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666 14-14-14-33 || Cooler: Custom Loop || GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black, on water || PSU: EVGA G2 850W || Case: Corsair 450D || SSD: 850 Evo 250GB, Intel 660p 2TB || Storage: WD Blue 2TB || G502 & Glorious PCGR Fully Custom 80% Keyboard || MX34VQ, PG278Q, PB278Q

Audio --- Headphones: Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX || Amp: Schiit Audio Magni 3 || DAC: Schiit Audio Modi 3 || Mic: Blue Yeti

R.I.P. Asus X99-A motherboard, April 2016 - October 2018, may you rest in peace. 5820K, if I ever buy you a new board, it'll be a good one.
