This is just one of the many things people are doing to create their gaming room although you can find out more ways here. The other good part about investing in a gaming PC is that you can upgrade the PC whenever you feel the need. The RAM, graphics card and CPU can all be upgraded over time without the need to have to buy the whole PC all over again. While you can buy a premade PC, building a PC from scratch is actually not a very difficult task. All you need to know is the right combination of GPU, motherboard, CPU, RAM and casing that fits your budget. As long as you can use a screwdriver, you can put all this together by yourself and it's also a fun activity to build something from scratch. Here's a guide to build a good low budget gaming PC.

Central Processing Unit

The CPU or Central Processing Unit is the real brains behind the gaming computer so it is very crucial to zero down on the right CPU for you. You should also dedicate a good percentage of your total budget for the CPU. A CPU is usually judged by the number of cores and thread as well as its clock speed. Typically the more of these, the faster it will be. The two companies that rule the CPU world are Intel and AMD and if you are really working on a budget then it's probably a good idea to go with AMD Ryzen 5 or perhaps an Intel i7. If money is not an issue, then definitely go for the Intel i9 which is the fastest processor out there as you can read here. While splurging on your CPU do keep in mind that you also need to spend on a decent graphic card which is what makes your gaming experience worth it.

Graphics Card or GPU

The GPU or the graphics card is one of the most important parts of a gamer's machine. This basically decides how fast and flawless the gameplay is. The GPU essentially renders the graphics on your monitor and typically should be about 30 to 40 percent of the budget. The companies you should ideally consider are NVIDIA and AMD and some of the options worth checking out are the NVIDIA GTX 1650 or the AMD RX 580.

Memory or RAM

As is very evident, the more RAM the better it is especially if you plan to use a lot of different kinds of applications. Load your PC with a minimum of 16 GB RAM with speeds of 3000 Mhz and look out for brands like Corsair or G Skill.

Other Additions

The remaining peripherals may not seem very important but it will serve you well to put some thought and investment into these as well. Get a power supply like a Corsair 500W and a good Corsair case that comes with a cooling fan so that you can save money on extra coolers.

What really matters about your gaming PC is how you handle the machine as well. Before you buy any of these, make sure you also check out the minimum requirements of the games that you intend to play so that your configuration matches the requirements.
