Today I’m building an INSANE Gaming PC Build for a $1500 budget! Built inside of the NEW Corsair Spec-Omega RGB, with addressable RGB, this build not only performs really well, but looks great too! Additional parts include the Ryzen 5 2600X and Adata RGB RAM!

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600X

For the CPU in this build AMD’s NEW Ryzen 2600X is the perfect choice! With 6 cores, 12 threads and a fast turbo boost speed of 4.2GHz it works well in both the multi threaded and single threaded departments! It also comes with AMD’s gorgeous Wraith Spire RGB stock cooler!

Motherboard: MSI B350M MORTAR AM4

For the motherboard in this build the MSI B350M MORTAR gives us good upgrade paths, 4 RAM dimm slots and PCI-E 3.0. It does this in a compact and affordable Micro ATX form factor.

RAM: Adata Spectrix D41 16GB

RGB RAM looks epic, which is why I selected the ADATA Spectrix D41! With a gorgeous diffused RGB strip up top, fast clock speed and dual channel performance, this 16GB kit works wonders in both the performance and looks departments¬

SSD: Samsung 970 EVO M.2 250GB

For the SSD in this build I chose a new drive from Samsung! With 250GB of super fast NVMe storage, in a compact M.2 form factor it works wonders for your PCs overall speed and boot up times!

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB

For the mass storage in this build I opted for a 2TB (2000GB) hard drive from Seagate. With plenty of room for your movies, music and games, it’s cheap and as quick as mainstream hard drives tend to get!

For the real gaming heart of this build I chose the ASUS Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070Ti! With the ever-impressive ASUS STRIX triple fan cooler, 8GB of VRAM and plenty of RGB it’s a card well suited to this build, and to both 1440p and 4K gaming!

Case: Corsair Spec-OMEGA RGB

For the case in this build the NEW Corsair Spec OMEGA RGB variant, comes in either white or black, and includes 2 addressable RGB fans, and built in addressable strip up front. It does this with a glass front and side panel, well balanced IO and PSU shield!

PSU: Corsair CX750M

This 750W power supply from Corsair gives plenty of room for upgrades in this build, while boasting an 80+ Bronze certification, guaranteeing efficiency and semi-modular interface meaning you only plug in the cables you need!
