If you are on a tight budget, but still you want to play your games with good performance, we have a great entry-level gaming build here which will allow you to play your games with high-ish settings and great FPS. If your primary game is Overwatch, WoW, Dota2, LoL and such, you could definitely play any of these games with high (near to maxed out) settings. For a more demanding games like GTA V, Witcher 3 or similar, you might need to lower down the settings to medium, but still for a 500$ gaming PC that is a great deal.
This is a great solution if you don’t want to drain your wallet, and yet enjoy a great gaming performance. Obviously this 500$ build can’t perform on the same level as our 800$ gaming build which is able to max out any game at 1080p, but for the games we’ve mentioned earlier in this post, it will provide you a great gaming performance with high settings. This is a skylake-generation gaming build, which means that you could upgrade it easily in the future without over-investing, and it will last a long time.
GREAT 500$ GAMING BUILD FOR Overwatch, CS:GO, Dota2, LoL, WoW
