Budget 500$ Gaming PC – Ryzen&Radeon

You want to play games, but have other expenses or just don’t like spending too much money on PC? This one will give you best Price&Performance ratio.

With Ryzen 2600 from refreshed 1st AMD Ryzen generation, is cheaper then his new brother, Ryzen 3600, but in performance world is the best choice for lower budget gaming. With Gigabyte B450M DS3H mATX motherboard and 16GB of RAM, this PC is capable of doing some hard work like rendering videos and streaming games.

Radeon RX 580 is slightly older AMD GPU, but still excellent for 1080P gaming on high settings at 60+FPS. If you choose 8GB model, it will give you good experience on 1440P, too.

Because of smaller budget, this PC is coming with 500gb Crucial MX500 SSD, with enough space for games and programs, but very good performance. Storage is easiest thing for upgrade, so if you want upgrade, buy WD Blue 1TB drive for 35$.

 

All of that in Cooler Master Q300L mATX case, with its small factor, tempered sidge glass and mesh front will look beautiful on desk.
