I want to propose a hypothetical exercise that I think will be a lot of fun. Let’s say that today is your lucky day, I gave you $1000 to shop and buy the necessary hardware to build yourself a custom gaming PC. It doesn’t matter whether you are an AMD fan, Intel fan, or so on and so forth. How would you have spent your cash and what are your reasonings behind your selections?
Your choices could help someone else make a decision on some hardware. So lets have some fun!
So Here’s How it Works
- Let’s use Amazon’s PC Components area as a guide so we’re all talking the same prices and looking at the same hardware
- Keep it under $1000. Close is ok though
- Comment with a link/ brief description of your choices and why you chose them
- Don’t worry about the operating system or peripherals (keyboard, mouse, etc). Just the main ingredients for a great Gaming PC
My Gaming PC Build for under $1000 | Example
Here is what I would build if I had our hypothetical $1000 burning a hole in my pocket:
The build I have chosen would keep me satisfied for quite some time. It has plenty of upgrade/overclock options and enough power to run almost any game out at 1080P.
So what would you buy?
