The best cheap PC for gaming, what components are the best?
Intel Core i5-10600KF
We start because this CPU is by the minimum ahead even of the Ryzen 9 5950X in gaming, especially in those games that depend purely on the frequency. With a current price of 249.85 euros, its six cores and 12 threads to 4.8 GHz with 95 watts of TDP, it is undoubtedly the best performance/price option on the market.
ASUS ROG Strix Z490-F Gaming
This motherboard integrates everything you need (less Wi-Fi) to get the most out of our processor. We choose ASUS for its overall quality and, above all, for its award-winning BIOS / UEFI, which are currently the most comprehensive on the market. We are also talking about a motherboard with the LGA 1200 socket, a 14-phase VRM, 2.5Gb LAN, two high-speed M.2, heatsinks everywhere, an excellent cooling system, and ample support for RAMs, a fundamental aspect as we will see below.
Its price is also content for how motherboards are currently: 259.90 euros.
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4-3600 MHz 2 x 8 GB CAS 18
These memories have it all at a reasonable price. A very decent speed that does not force the BMI too much and therefore is “Plug & Play,” a latency more than fast for that speed, chips Samsung B-die if we get into the world of overclocking course a sound dissipation system and RGB lighting.
We are talking about a kit 2 x 8 GB at 3600 MHz with timings of 18-19-19-39—lifetime warranty with Corsair, all priced at € 114.99.
NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti
Here we have to clarify that due to the lack of stock present, there are no models in stock on the market, and manufacturers must present their models. Likewise, the chip GA104-200 is the one that undoubtedly takes the cake for its performance, consumption, and above all, price.
Indeed, AMD has not launched its upper-middle range of GPUs, so for the moment this chip takes the lead, it would be necessary to choose a specific model, but from what has been seen, it is possibly GIGABYTE.
And ASUS that take the information the jack to the water, especially the latter with the TUF line, significantly adjusted in price and with excellent benefits.
Corsair MP400 1 TB
Corsair has undoubtedly taken an ace from its sleeve with this SSD since it integrates NAND Flash QLC 3D with a read and writes speed of 3400 MB / s and 3000 MB / s PCIe 3.0 x4, all with a content price of 132.99 euros. Impossible to beat that considering the guarantee offered by the brand, something that is seldom valued.
Considering the components that we have already purchased, the consumption should be established around 300-320 watts at full PC performance. Under stress, we will play it safe and look for maximum efficiency, which after some years of use with a font like Corsair RM750X will mean an exciting saving of energy, light, and heat.
Also, in the face of an upgrade, we will have plenty of sources to face without complications, whatever the range of graphics cards it is.
Corsair iCUE 220T RGB
We chose this chassis for several reasons. First of all, by keeping the PC lighting synchronization all in a single program such as iCUE. Second, for its quality/price, since it integrates 3 A-RGB fans, it is made of steel, it is compact to be an ATX tower, it combines tempered glass.
Also, it has anti-dust filters, an independent double chamber system, cable management, and a very competitive price for so much feature: 109.33 euros.
The total price of the equipment is 1,419.21 euros. For the type of PC that we can play even at 4K, it is a more than tight price, all top-level components and leading brands that respond.
