Enjoy 1080p gaming without breaking the bank
B360M-DS3H Gigabyte £71 It lacks overclocking options, but the new B360 chipset is far cheaper than the Z370 and is perfect for this budget build.
Core i3-8100 Intel £138 A great processor for out-of-the-box gaming performance. Opt for the AMD Ryzen 1300X if you’d like to overclock.
GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Inno3D £210 The rumours were true and graphics card prices are starting to fall. Our pick for this build is bit cheaper than last year.
Hyper 212 Evo CoolerMaster £25 We’ve dropped the controller from this build and added in a better CPU cooler, for a quieter, cooler system.
Vengeance LPX 8GB (2x4GB) @2400MHz Corsair £65 DDR4 prices are still high, however this Corsair pair is a good value option.
500BQ EVGA £40 It may be cheap, but this 500W PSU is more than enough to handle any budget build. This rig only draws 269W at maximum load, too.
MX500 250GB Crucial £50 Crucial’s SSD range is fantastic value and offers good performance, too. It’s also time we jumped up to 250GB.
WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM Western Digital £37 One terabyte of old-fashioned hard storage is the perfect home for all of your media, backups and storage-hungry games.
Neos Bitfenix £33 The Neos provides decent airflow, good support for 3.5-inch hard drives, and a fairly painless build experience.
G2460PF AOC £210 This is the cheapest 144Hz, gaming monitor you can buy yet it still offers decent image quality, great performance and Freesync.
K55 Corsair £39 This keyboard may lack mechanical keyswitches but it offers decent typing, plus it has RGB and extra gaming keys.
Rival 110 SteelSeries £25 A great sensor, simple design and impressively low price make this a great entry-level gaming mouse.
Cloud Stinger HyperX £35 We love the HyperX Cloud, but at £70 it’s too much for an entry-level system. The Cloud Stinger is the next best thing.
