Cheap Bastard's DIY Gaming PC Build for $508

GamersNexus: "It's been a while since we've run a proper "Cheap Bastard's gaming PC build," and feeling a bit nostalgic (and bastardly-cheap), we've decided to revisit the topic of a $500-range gaming PC. As always, the parts detailed herein are meant to get you on the ground with a DIY, custom gaming machine for dirt-cheap, and we think we've put together a list of reliable parts at a good price."

Thats an interesting setup to be sure. 7790 is a brilliant choice at that price no doubt. Usually the crown for this price range goes to the 7850, but at that discount theres no competition.

But as usual, FX-6300 is generally the optimal choice for CPU, Its got more cores, it overclocks more, its got a colossal jump in Cache and uses roughly the same amount of electricity. And only costs $10 more.

Check list
