Enjoy 1080p gaming without breaking the bank
B360M-DS3H Gigabyte $68 It lacks overclocking options, but the new B360 chipset is far cheaper than Z370, and perfect for this budget build.
Core i3-8100 Intel $110 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 $215 The rumors were true, and graphics card prices are starting to fall. Our pick for this build is bit cheaper than last time.
Hyper 212 Evo CoolerMaster $30 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 $80 DDR4 prices are still high, however this Corsair pair is a good value option.
500BQ EVGA $60 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 $65 Crucial’s SSD range is fantastic value and offers good performance, too. It’s also time we jumped up to 250GB.
Caviar Blue 1TB 7200rpm Western Digital $42 One terabyte of old-fashioned hard storage is the perfect home for all of your media, backups, and AAA titles.
Neos Bitfenix $45 The Neos provides decent airflow, good support for 3.5-inch hard drives, and a fairly painless build experience.
G2460PF AOC $260 This is the cheapest 144Hz, gaming monitor you can buy, yet it still offers decent image quality, great performance, and Freesync.
K55 Corsair $48 This keyboard may lack mechanical keyswitches but it offers decent typing, plus it has RGB and extra gaming keys.
Rival 110 SteelSeries $24 A great sensor, simple design, and impressively low price make this a great entry-level gaming mouse.
