Best Gaming PC Under 1000

by Elsa Stringer

Every gamer wants to have a perfect PC, but not every gamer has a large amount of money to spend on a perfect PC. We know it can be stressful and it can be difficult to choose which PC is the best, so we are going to help you a little bit. If you are into that, the easiest and the cheapest way for you to have that perfect PC is for you to build it yourself.

If you would like to build a PC by yourself we’ve made it easy for you so you don’t need to research anymore. We’ve gathered the best parts you can find on the market, for that perfect PC, and what’s best is that everything is under $1000.

Of course, if you have more money, you have a chance to have a better PC, but the ones that you can make with around $1000 are also very good, and you will be able to play any game that you want.

So, let’s dig in, and let’s build that perfect gaming PC that costs only around $1000.

First, you will need a good CPU, and for that price, there isn’t better than Ryzen 5 3600X. It has 6 physical and 12 logical cores and amazing clock speeds. You will get a base clock speed of 3.8GHz at stock settings, but with a maximum boost clock of 4.4GHz. This is a very good choice because it comes with a great stock cooler and it will be powerful enough to get the most out of next-gen GPUs.


When it comes to coolers Wraith Spire is one of the best stock coolers out there. It comes with the X-model, but the model comes with a much bigger premium on it than there was with last-gen Ryzen CPUs.

Something new on the market is the RTX GPU the ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 2060. This is the most cost-effective RTX GPU to date, and it is better accepted by gamers than the previous ones. With this, you will be able to max out the graphics settings in 1080p in the most demanding games. You will also be able to attain 60FPS easily.

Something that is the most important when it comes to gaming PCs is the RAM. The Corsair Vengeance LPX is a great choice and the best advice that we can give you is to go dual-channel, so you can get two 8 GB Ram sticks to pair up. Or if you want to save a bit of money, you can get only the one 8 GB stick.

Now we know how this may look: We’ve started strong with a 3rd-gen Ryzen CPU and now we’re sneaking in the last-gen B450 motherboard. But here’s the thing: the best and coolest thing about the new X570 motherboard has got to be the new PCIe 4.0 interface. It supports RAM speeds up to 2666MHxz without overclocking. The only problem with this motherboard is that you can’t make use of that PCIe 4.0 because graphic cards still don’t use it.

It depends on what kind of gamer are you when you are choosing to buy your SSD. On that it depends will you buy only the SSD, or you will buy an SSD for your Operating System and a larger HDD for everything else. The best and the most affordable SSD in the market is the Western Digital Blue 3D NAND SSD.


You need a quality power supply, and you don’t want to save money on this component. The Corsair TXM550M is a great option, it is made by a trustworthy manufacturer, it’s power efficient, it works on an operating temperature of 50°C and it has a very quiet fan.

The case is a specific thing, some gamers don’t care about the case, and others want them to be the best. You need to be the one that wants a good case because you want a good airflow because you want your components to living a long life, and you don’t want to hear that noise. The Fractal Design Focus G White is a great option because the airflow is great, it looks good, and it has two preinstalled case mounted fans.

If you don’t have it already, you will need an Operating System, and everyone knows that for gaming, Windows is the best. You don’t want Linux, because you can’t play every game with it, and with Windows, you can.

We’ve almost come to the end of our list, and you are almost good to go. If you have a good monitor and a keyboard and a mouse, that’s great.  But if you don’t, and you still have a bit of money to spend, we are going to recommend to you what you should buy.

If you want a good monitor, so you can really enjoy your games, then AOC G2460PF, the 24-inch model, is a great choice.


And for the keyboard and the mouse, the Corsair K55 paired with Haropoon is a great choice. The keyboard is a membrane keyboard and it has RGB lighting, programmable macro key, and multimedia controls. We think there isn’t a better budget mouse than this one, it has two programmable buttons, DPI modes, and textured rubber grips.

We wanted also to recommend you some other accessories, but they are a bit of the budget. You don’t have to buy them immediately, but remember them for once you have a bit of extra cash.

Many think that controllers are only for console gaming, but that’s not the case. You can play many games on your PC with a controller, and there are even games that you can run if you don’t have a controller. So if you still don’t have a good controller, consider buying the XBOX One controller. It is simply the best one out there, and there isn’t much to say about it. If you ever used it, you know why. And if you didn’t, get one, and you will find out.

If you want to truly experience a game and you want to feel like you are in that magical world, you will need good headphones. They are great because you don’t want others to hear what they probably don’t want to hear, and you want to disconnect from the world and connect to that fantasy world.

The HyperX Cloud Revolver S is not the cheapest option, but they are excellent. They are very comfortable, they are durable, the sound is exceptional, and the microphone has a noise-canceling option. And the best part is that they come with the 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound. They are compatible both with PC, PS4 and with the Xbox One, so if you have one of these consoles you will be able to use these headphones with them also.

We hope that we managed to help you a little bit and that now you can see things more clearly. Once you assemble the amazing PC that will cost you around $1000, enjoy it as much as you can. Good luck and have fun, playing your favorite games.
