So the quarantine has been very boring and it has mostly been work from home followed by gaming and then sleep. So I finally decided to make this Budget Gaming PC during May-June 2020. My older PC had an FX6300 Processor which is like a relic now!

My target with this PC was to get good fps in most games and be able do some side video editing whenever required. So lets get to the budget gaming pc build.

Processor Ryzen 7 2700 8 Core 16 threads (Got it for an amazing Discount on Amazon and just love it)

Pros
– Fkin Spacious
– Good cable management space

Cons
– 1 front fan and 1 rear fan no RGB
– No PSU Shroud

Overall after setting up the PC I personally feel it would be more than sufficient and future proof for most workloads unless you really want to push the limits and run ultra setting on a 1440p resolution.

Future proof?
You can always swap the graphic card (GPU) with a 2070 super and get the best also you can add a M.2 NVME Drive and get killer transfer rates but its all about the money. So…

Oh yes I forgot about the extra fans I added, since my build color is red I just got red LED fan below

Circle Stay Cool CG-12 120MM Red LED Case Cabinet Fan x 3

I added one fan to the top rear end of the cabinet and 2 to the front end and didn’t touch the stock fans. Let it be as they are it really makes it a lot easier. That’s all. Thanks for reading!
