With summer coming up, it’s only natural for every gamer around the world to be excited for an upgrade to a new gaming setup. If you are an avid gamer, it’ll be more intriguing to building one yourself! Here’s a tailor-made Gaming PC Build that'll give you a chance to gloat for the entire year! Today, along with BigBadroid, I bring you the best combination to construct a Console Assassin Gaming PC Build, at a whopping price of $1000! Rest assured; this might not only amaze you but might also leave friends' jaws dropped!
This article guides you to build a complete setup that includes the monitor, the speakers, and the peripherals as well. It’s advisable to keep a notebook or a note taking app handy.
To begin with, here's a fantastic choice for the processor, the almighty AMD FX 6300 processor, yielding a total of 6 cores that unite to provide blazing fast and buttery smooth performance at 3.5Ghz. However, the limit is quite beyond your expectations; a turbo-boost mode lets you hit across the boundaries by filliping up at 4.1Ghz directly! This processor is high on value for what you pay.
Following the processor is the motherboard, we chose a mid-ranger: Gigabyte GA 78LMT USB3, and it comes along with two USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports befitted. While the motherboard and the processor aren't only the weight lifters, two 8GB RAM sticks provide an unforgettable and beast like multi-tasking experience, and for the same, we picked up the best for the price in the market: the Hyper X Fury!
To run a set of games with highly rendered graphics, we went ahead with ZOTAC GTX 960 4GB graphics card; it handles the bulk well considering its price in the market, which makes the build entirely hassle-less for sure. (For a choice of expenditure, you can also purchase the 2GB variant, that may suffice for this build). Now, to store all the storage hungry games, the most convenient choice was the Seagate Barracuda 1TB hard drive, which effectively served as a reliable option.
Moving on, it's all now compiled, which led us to pondered upon the encasement factor. For the same, we again chose a mid-ranger since it doesn't serve a significant role except holding all of the back-ends together. We chose the Cooler Master K380 and, you can't deny the fact that it seriously looks sexy! Those red LEDs, pre-installed cooling fans, bumped up cable management possibilities and the robust and attractive gaming design. We also needed all of these parts to run buttery smooth within the case. Consequently, we installed the Corsair CX600 Watts power supply that unleashes the full 600 Watts to serve our purpose.
Next up: the monitor and the speakers. For this build a 1080P (Full-HD) monitor was sufficient, which is why we chose an AOC FHD monitor with a refresh rate of 60Hz for the sleekest visual experience ever. Next, comes the audio factor. For the speakers, our partners made just a marvelous choice, the F&D 511 2.1 Multimedia speakers; they impart an impressive sound quality through the stunning subwoofer system and a perfect level of bass. I couldn’t be more persuaded to get a pair of my own!
The last additions to the setup were the keyboard and the mouse. Here's where we cut the cost, we chose not the best, but the ones that get the job done: Logitech K200 Keyboard and Mouse combo. However, the keyboard also has a reassuring side, the keys aren't jerky and don't make noise, providing a decent typing experience.
And to sum it all up here's the final build, with all the cables, settled perfectly at the rear of the table. The time has come, to fire up the almighty sub-thousand dollars custom gaming setup!
