If you are buying your first PC, or in need for new pc and don’t have too much money to spend on it, we have built this PC which can play games at decent FPS (Frames Per Second) on 1080P and have a lot of upgrade potential.

It comes with Ryzen 3400G APU (CPU with built in AMD Vega graphics) which have decent FPS on medium settings in many games. It is 4 core/8 threads cpu which is capable running some powerful graphics card and have a room for upgrades.  In future you can easily put RTX 2060, RX 580, RX 5500 XT, RX 5600 XT in this build and have extremely good FPS on 1440P/4K. There is Team T-Force Vulcan 16 GB DDR4 3200 MHz memory and Gigabyte B450M DS3H Micro ATX motherboard.

This is budget PC, but that isn’t a reason that it can’t look nice. HX210 MicroATX is cheap, but very nice case with side windows ready for RGB led strip.
