Today I’ll be building and testing a killer $700 Gaming PC Build for 1080 and 1440p gaming in 2019! Whether it’s COD: Black Ops 4, GTA V, Overwatch or Just Cause: 3, this system has it covered, featuring a Gigabyte GTX 1660 and 16GB of RGB memory from XPG!

For the CPU in this $700 Gaming PC Build I selected the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 – a 6 core, 12 thread CPU that covers all of the multi-threaded bases nicely, and has a fast single threaded turbo boost clock speed of 3.9GHz too. The 2600 comes included with AMDs superb stock cooler, made by Cooler Master, keeping our CPU cool on a budget!
For the motherboard I went for one of the best value for money B450 motherboards, the MSI B450 Pro M2, a micro ATX motherboard with 2 RAM dimm slots, an M.2 slot and great price tag!
ADATAs new XPG Spectrix D60G makes up the memory, or RAM, in today’s build – the 16GB kit has a fast clock speed of 3000MHz and great looking design – with fully addressable RGB lighting!
For the storage in this build, a simple, affordable Seagate Barracuda hard drive is the best way to go – it saves money for other components, such as the GPU and provides enough room for Steam and Origin game libraries!
In terms of the graphics card chosen, the Gigabyte GTX 1660 is one of the latest cards from NVIDIA – with 6GB of video memory, and Gigabyte’s OC Windforce cooler its a quiet, high performing card perfect for gaming in 2019!
The Sharkoon TG4 is the case I selected for this build, and it’s a really unique choice, with 4 120mm addressable RGB fans included, dual tempered glass sidepanels and support for full size ATX motherboards at a price point around $60 you cannot go wrong!
Finally, the PSU I opted for in this system comes from Cooler Master, and is their Masterwatt 550 – a semi modular, 550W power supply with an 80+ Bronze certification to boot!
