Trying to figure out how to build a cheap gaming PC that doesn’t suck? We hear you. The best gaming PCs have a reputation for being really expensive, with extremely high-end systems setting you back thousands of dollars to buy or build. But, there’s more to building PCs for gaming than what the 1% can afford.
To prove that point, we’ll show you exactly how to build a cheap gaming PC that doesn’t suck. The system we’ll walk you through here won’t be able to play Control at 4K with ray tracing maxed out, but 1080p at high settings? Easy. Thanks to excellent processors and graphics cards that are, now more than ever, priced competitively, it’s practically a walk in the park – as long as you know what to look for.
