Today I’ll be taking you over a KILLER $1200 Gaming PC Build for 2019, with gaming benchmarks! This sleek build smashes the latest AAA titles, including Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Forza Horizon 4 at 1080 and 1440p, 60FPS!
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
For the CPU in this 2019 Gaming PC Build the Ryzen 5 2600X was the ideal choice. The combination of 6 cores and 12 threads with a solid turbo speed of 4.25GHz it combines multi threaded power with solid single threaded performance!
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master MA410M
For the CPU cooler in this build Cooler Master’s MA410M is bright, powerful and quiet in its operation. The integrated addressable RGB lighting pairs with an included controller to leave an aesthetic like no other. It will cost you a little more than other units, but your build’s gotta look good!
Motherboard: MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC
When it comes to most Ryzen-based builds, the B450 chipset is the way to go. With 4 ram dimm slots, USB 3.1 Gen 2, overclocking support for both CPU and Memory, and included RGB lighting you can’t go too far wrong!
RAM: ADATA Spectrix D41 16GB
For the RAM in this build I opted for a 16GB kit from ADATA. This new Spectrix kit comes in red and grey variants, each with a sleek and stylist addressable RGB strip up top. Seamlessly controllable through the RAM dimm slot, this fast 3000MHz kit is the way to go!
SSD: ADATA XPG SX8200 480GB
For fast storage an SSD really is the way to go, this dedicated M.2 drive from ADATA is great value, while boasting read and write speeds of upto 3500MB/s! The ~500GB capacity also allows enough room for your Windows install and most frequently played games!
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM
While the SSD in this build is super quick, it doesn’t provide masses of storage and that’s where Seagate’s 7200RPM hard drive comes in! This 2TB variant provides plenty of room for your Steam and Origin libraries while adding an element of future-proofing to the system too!
GPU: MSI GTX 1060 6GB
For the graphics card in this system a 6GB MSI GTX 1060 was the way to go. While AMD’s new RX590 is also a good way to go, unfortunately the RTX2070 costs just too much for a build of this budget. It all depends on whether you have a preference over FreeSync or G-SYNC, and just what offers you can nab
Case: Bitfenix ENSO Mesh White
PSU: Bitfenix Formula Gold 650W
