Best $2,000 Dollar Gaming PC Build, Prepare To Be Amazed

If you were to put together a $2,000 dollar gaming PC build then you’d be absolutely amazed by the speed and graphical performance. Especially now that newer tech has recently been released, this build is the newest of the new.

How do I know this?

Because optimal PC hardware on this kind of budget sets you up for so far into the future that I can’t really even quite fathom exactly how long it would last.

Most likely for 10+ years. (Seriously.)

 

Best 2000 Dollar Gaming PC Build

 

Amazing, Optimal Performance


If you’re looking to max absolutely every single game that is out and that is coming out this year and into the next with 60+ FPS and then some then this is definitely going to be the right build for you.

You’ll not only be able to just play games, you’ll be able to create them. This build is more than capable of running game engines and 3D softwares for rendering and the such.

This build is going to take anything and everything that you throw at it so if you really do get these parts and put this build together then I applause you for your desire to have the best of the best when it comes to gaming PCs and the top of the line hardware that’s out there.

Seriously though, computers are so far ahead of the gaming consoles of today that it’s almost not even funny. PCs are able to do so much more and they’re able to show exactly how a game should look, at the top of its game. At its prime.

Only PCs have the power to do that and this specific build is a God among the rest.

 

How To Build A Computer


If you’re putting this build together then you’re obviously going to need to know how to put a computer together.

For most people, this sounds like a daunting task that can only be done by the computer nerds of the world but that’s just not true. Not at all.

You see, I’m the furthest thing from being some computer guru, especially when I went to build my first PC myself.

I was a console gamer for the longest time but I’ve always come across awesome videos of the different mods for PC games and just the PC gaming world in general. I also had some friends that were into PC gaming so that pushed me to want to build my own.

After researching A LOT about building computers and looking at a bunch of different tutorials I came across a video series by Newegg TV that fully explains step by step the process of building a computer and I’ve attached that video series below!

Be sure to watch the whole video before and during your process when you go to build this PC. Newegg didn’t leave anything out and this is the same video that I used when I built my first gaming PC!

Now, on to the good part. The hardware!

Build Details


This build is a God among Gods when it comes to PC builds.

You can never go wrong with running with a $2,000 budget for building an epic gaming rig.

The combination of the i7-9700k and a RTX 2080 video card gives the most ultimate experience that you could fathom with this type of budget. You’re going to be able to max anything and everything you install on the hard drive/solid state drive. You’re basically guaranteed max settings, 60 FPS.

The 9700k is the newest model of CPU from Intel and with the pricing finally making sense, it’s time to add it to this build.

I’ve included the liquid cooler because it’s needed for the 9700k. Unlike previous generations, this CPU will not come with a stock Intel CPU cooler.

Therefore you’ll need to have some kind of a cooling system in place and the Corsair H100i v2 is your best bet if you’re looking for quality. Be sure to look up different YouTube video guides for the installation of it!

The case is a full tower case I’m sure that the video card and any other big video card should be able to fit this case with no problems.

Even though the price isn’t all the way there, I currently have a RTX 2080 listed for the graphics card. This is the absolute best video card  you can get on the market right now and since it fits within the budget, it makes sense to have the best of the best.

The price point for a RTX 2080 is high right now so if you need to go down to a 8GB RTX 2070 to get a better overall price then do so. The GPU market has been going hay wire due to Bitcoin mining farms and the like. The current listing for the above RTX 2080 has some options for brand new, though it is a bit pricier than usual.

Why not a RTX 2080 Ti? As I talked about just above, that’s part of the reason. You can also take a look for yourself as to how overpriced 2080 Ti’s are and most of the lower priced ones (which is anywhere from $1,000-$1,200 for the lower priced ones) don’t even perform at the level that they’re advertised to perform at.

Paying that much would also put you $250+ outside of the $2,000 budget range so unless you’re looking to spend more than that, a RTX 2080 is going to do fine for what this type of build should be put together for. If you’ve been browsing other build sites you’ve probably noticed the price being more than what’s said for the price point.

The companies that make the video cards that we gamers need are increasing the price due to the demand from the miners, this is why almost all of the GPUs pricing doesn’t make sense. It’s an odd time to be building PCs and I’m trying my best to keep everything updated as we move forward. With that in mind, let’s go over everything else with the build.

Feel free to switch out other parts of the build such as the case, PSU, etc. You can ask me in the comments below if you’re unsure about a certain part being compatible.

We can finally use a RTX 2080 with all of the other parts combined to stay within the $2,000 price range goal.

A full tower allows you to add a lot more drives to it for down the road and it just looks awesome when you have it sitting on top of a large desk.

Trust me, you’re going to need a good bit of room to be able to display this case, my favorite part about it is that it can change to different colors via the led strip that it has on it! It’s a beautiful tower.

Now unlike most of the other builds on the site this build has 16GB of RAM. There’s more than enough room in this budget for 16GB RAM and having that much memory is going to make multi-tasking a breeze. You’ll be able to run your own game server as well if you’d really like to, 16 GB RAM is very nice to have!

As far as hard drive space goes, there’s enough room in the budget to have a nice sized SSD and a 1TB hard drive as well. 1TB of SSD is going to make you extremely content with your build because a SSD is seriously 10x faster than a normal hard drive. I highly suggest throwing your operating system on the SSD along with your favorite programs/games as well. Any other files like photos/videos should be stored in the 1TB hard drive.

* Now for the CD drive you’re able to actually have a Blu Ray drive! Regular CDs will work just fine on this drive, it’s a combination of Blu Ray and regular CD write so no need to worry there. Blu Ray movies have amazing quality and being able to use them with your build will be awesome!

The reason why this drive is optional is because maybe you’re wanting to install your operating system via USB, you want a basic CD drive or neither. Understandable in any way, just be sure you know what you want to have!

 

Peripherals


You’re going to need a mouse/keyboard combo as well as a nice monitor to go with this high-tier build. I’ll say now that the keyboard isn’t entirely important to the point where it’s necessary to spend a bunch of money on it but I’d understand why if you’re looking for certain features that can come with a higher end keyboard.

Below are a couple of links to reviews from Logitech’s G502 Proteus Spectrum mouse and their G910 Orion Spark keyboard. Be sure to read through them and see what comes with some of the highest quality peripherals, especially in the realm of the mouse.

You definitely want a nicer mouse if you want to have optimal accuracy and overall good build quality. If you want you gear to stand the test of time then you’ll have to invest a bit for it.

As for a monitor, with the power of something like the RTX 2080, you need something that is going to show off what it is truly capable of. This means at least going with a high quality 1440p resolution monitor since you’ll be getting an insane amount of FPS with it.

The Dell monitor linked below is a great choice for 1440p without absolutely breaking the bank. There are a ton of different monitor options on the market ranging to all sorts of different price ranges so be sure to do your research but if you’re wanting to have that 1440p experience without spending upwards of $600+ then this might be the one for you.

Let me know down below if you find other monitors that you think would better suit the build. I always keep the budget in mind and since there isn’t a ton of room outside of the budget range I figured to go with the best bang for your buck when it comes to a lower priced 1440p monitor.

 

Operating System And More


Now for an operating system I would definitely pick up Windows 10. Microsoft has been doing a pretty great job at keeping Windows 10 updated and it’s the most optimal choice when you have gaming in mind. Even in the VR space, Windows 10 is basically the main operating system that is in mind with developers.

If you really don’t want to dish out the extra $100 for an operating system right away (I totally get it) then I highly suggest that you check out the Linux based operating system known as Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is an open-source operating system that gives you a ton of freedom. Oh, and it’s 100% free! 🙂

You could just throw Ubuntu on your system until you’ve saved up enough cash for Windows or you could just simply use Ubuntu, there are many programs for this operating system that will allow you to emulate Steam games so no need to worry about game compatibility.

Also if you need a good internet connection from your PC to your wifi then I highly suggest picking up a wireless network adapter. This is the same kind of adapter that I use with my gaming PC and it works wonders, it keeps connection all the time and it is extremely reliable!

It’s better to have a direct connection via ethernet for your internet but if you have to go wireless then you’ll want an adapter that definitely gets the job done.

81CsUmlJ+iL._SL1500_ USB Wireless Network Adapter – Panda 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter

Those two links above are for Windows 10 64bit and for a USB network adapter for connecting to the internet. Why USB though?

Well, there’s always the option of going with an internal wireless adapter if you wanted to. Being on a $2,000 budget gives you room to really be able to use whatever parts you’d really want to use.

I’d highly suggest going with a direct connection via an ethernet cord if you’re able to since that’ll give you the best connection but if that’s not an option then you’ll definitely need some sort of a wireless adapter to get online with your build.

Also, if you need a nice gaming mouse to go with your build then I suggest checking out the Anker gaming mouse. I reviewed it just a while back and it has major customization options along with precision!

If you need a keyboard that’ll get the job done then I suggest checking out this Logitech keyboard. It has got the best bang for your buck and it was designed with the PC gamer in mind that’s for sure.

 

To Conclude


All in all, if you’re looking for the best of the best and you want unstoppable power when it comes to not only PC gaming but computing in general then this is definitely the build that you should go with.

This is going to work with everything you throw at it, and then some.

So what do you guys think of this build?

Are you going to be putting it together?

  1. Thomas says:

    Hi, for the motherboard you have suggested Z170-A but on amazon there is a better model called the Z170-PRO would this also work for the build and if so, would I be able to use the PRO in replacement for the A and if so what benefits would you think I would get?

    • Colton P says:

      The only difference is that the PRO version has more PCIe slots to use for different adapters. If you need to use those extra slots then that’d be the board to go with, if not then save some money and go with the Z170-A.

  2. David O. says:

    I found another build and wanted ti see if this was better:

    AMD FX 9590 Black Edition 4.7GHz Eight-Core Socket AM3+ Corsair Hydro Series H100i V2 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 Socket AM3+ 990FX ATX AMD Motherboard EVGA 16GB DDR3-1866 (PC3-14900) CL 9 Desktop Memory Crucial BX200 240GB SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5″ Solid State Drive ASUS Radeon R7 250 1024MB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card Thermaltake Versa H22 Special Edition Mid Tower Case LG GH24NSC0B 24x Internal DL-DVD Rewritable drive Corsair CX Series 850 Watt ATX Modular Power Supply

    • Colton P says:

      That build makes no sense David, to be blunt.

      The 9590 is a horrible CPU for the price in comparison to what you can get on the Intel side and the graphics card is extremely old. That build really doesn’t make any sense… how much would it cost you?

  3. Ronan says:

    Hi Colton,

    What do you think about my build – It will mainly be used for 3ds max and for gaming – I would like it to be VR ready also.

    I’m looking to get the price down a bit though, at the moment the parts list is around $2220 – but realistically i only have around $1,600 to spend.

    Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core Processor
    Corsair H55 57.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
    Asus X99-A ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard
    Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
    Samsung 850 Pro Series 512GB 2.5″ Solid State Drive
    Toshiba 3TB 3.5″ 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    MSI GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Video Card
    be quiet! Silent Base 800 w/Window (Orange) ATX Mid Tower Case
    EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
    Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit

    Thanks, I appreciate any advice you might have for me,

    Ronan

    • Colton P says:

      Hi Ronan,

      You’d be able to go a little lower on the performance with the CPU, I understand you’ll also be using 3ds max so I’m not entirely sure if that decision is based on being able to use that optimally, but other CPUs would also be a good pick.

  4. Alex W. says:

    Can you explain how to build in Bluetooth capability to the computer? I saw something about bluetooth PCI cards and dont know if it is based on the motherboard or what.

    Also which one would you put in the build you listed above?

    • Colton P says:

      Hey there Alex,

      You’d simply add a bluetooth card to the right slot on the motherboard. I’d recommend this one as it is high quality and also comes with wifi compatibility. You’ll throw it into one of the PCIe slots on the motherboard!

  5. JLewis1309 says:

    Hey,
    So i first bought your $500 build(with a few adjustments of my own) and im finally at the point where i can upgrade my PC and this build looks great.
    The only thing tho is im looking for a case that doesnt use screws to open kinda like the Corsair 780T.
    Are there any cases like that you would recommend?
    I like the design of the Enthoo Luxe, especially the open window, but im really hoping to find one similar but with the Corsair 780T kinda style of opening
    Thanks ;P

    • JLewis1309 says:

      also Sidenote when i put this build into PCpartbuilder it comes back with a compatibility note:
      The Patriot Viper 3 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory operating voltage of 1.5V exceeds the Intel Skylake CPU recommended maximum of 1.35V+5% (1.417V). This memory module may run at a reduced clock rate to meet the 1.35V voltage recommendation, or may require running at a voltage greater than the Intel recommended maximum.

      Is this an issue? ^^

      • Colton P says:

        Hmm, I must have been looking at something else at the time of putting the build together… It’s not an absolutely huge issue but it’s recommended to run RAM at the right voltages with the CPU.

        I’d recommend this motherboard and this RAM to avoid it. Again not a huge, extreme issue. I’ll change the above parts to go with this as well.

    • Colton P says:

      Welcome back JLewis 😛

      Kind of a hard find, I’d recommend either of the ones that you recommend to be honest. I can’t think of any off the top of my head as I don’t really focus on researching different full towers… I think that the 780T is going to be one of the only ones that open the way you’re wanting it to… I’ll keep an eye out and let you know if I find good ones that are similar though!

  6. Will says:

    also if you don’t mind me asking, whats the difference between the two?? and which one do you recommend i pick? unless i should avoid both

    http://amzn.to/29NkBDy

    and

    http://amzn.to/29Nkhoh

    • Colton P says:

      The 3X version has 1 more PCIe slot and a different configuration of USB slots – really the USB slots are just in different areas.

      If you don’t mind the extra bit, I’d recommend the 3X version since you get more slots. Those slots might come handy down the road when adding more to the PC.

  7. Will says:

    Hey, i think i founbd my answer, however i need your opinion im going to make my ultimate dream build, but idk which one to get.

    http://pcpartpicker.com/list/DcZFtJ
    Or
    http://pcpartpicker.com/list/6gTP3F

    The reason im doing this is because I was gonna at first use the 4790k but then i heard about the 6700k, so i decided to take a look at that one however i noticed that it was 1151 and not 1150 which means you need a different MOBO, and ram. Which one should i get? im trying to make my pc as white/black as possible btw and i dont need anything more than 2 way sli,

    Also, whichever one you thik is bnetter, should I change anything? Thank you, And Beautiful website I love it!

    • Colton P says:

      The 6700k build is the one you should go with. If you’re for sure wanting to go with SLI down the road then 1000w will be enough, if you’ll never go SLI then 1000w would be a bit much.

      Other than that, everything looks great man. Glad that you dig the site 🙂

      • Will says:

        Okay well i that case i have huge doubt in me having 2 way sli, i think it has more disadvantages than advantages, so what power supply would you recommend, and is the ram a good choice? and also with the mobo, is that a great decision? overclockable right when i get this build? remember im trying to make this as black and white as possible lol, thanks man you’re the best

        • Colton P says:

          Assuming that you plan to overclock down the road, it’d be a good idea to stay on the safe side with the power supply. I’d recommend going with this one since it’ll be more than enough for what you’d need down the road but it’s still significantly cheaper.

          The RAM is good man, no need to worry 🙂 And yes, that board is ideal for overclocking as well.

  8. ~ says:

    how different are these ram sticks in comparison to this build? Reason. Wing I wanna get white sticks and I can’t seem to find any of the same company http://amzn.to/29B5wbb

  9. Alex W. says:

    Colton,

    I am glad to see that this thread is still alive because I am a Hardcore Gamer new to pc building (no exp whatsoever) but also saved up for this build and extra.

    I need some advice/input on some things.
    Are the parts in this build compatible with the GTX 1080 video card and if so, then which series would you recommend? I am looking for high, smooth performance.

    I try to host servers often and was wondering if the Panda 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter still would be good for that sort of thing.

    For the Processor – Intel Core i7: K or not to K? what is the difference?

    liquid cooling. recommendation?

    Solid state drive- I am leaning towards 1TB. would I need that much?
    I play a lot of the big games. Ark, Skyrim, Diablo 3, etc.

    I only ever use 1 monitor and lastly need to know if this will all work in the Azza XT tower linked in the above comments.

    Sorry for the long post. Any input is appreciated.

    • Colton P says:

      Alex,

      Any 1080 is going to be good to use. Whichever one fits best for your budget – that’s the one that you should go for.

      Well, a direct connection would obviously be the most ideal thing to do for server hosting. If you’re relatively close to the router then that should work okay.

      K means that it can be overclocked, non K means that it can’t be overclocked. If you don’t want to overclock then go with a CPU that is non K version – you aren’t obligated to overclock right away, it’s just an option.

      I have liquid cooling listed above, I recommend that one if you’re getting the K version. Non K CPUs don’t need fancy cooling.

      If you feel you need that much space then go for it, it depends on how much stuff you want to have on a SSD. I have a 500GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive and it’s nice.

      Are you referring to this case then? If so then yeah, it’d work just fine.

      • Alex W. says:

        Hi Colton!
        Thanks for the response. I have one last question before I buy the remaining parts:
        Is the EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G2 power supply listed on this build what I should get if I will be adding in the Gigabyte gtx 1080 xtreme card?

  10. John says:

    Does it need a cpu cooler because it always terrifies me D:
    I didn’t put a cooler on my last computer and bad things happened D:

  11. your retarded says:

    and then you moderate the comments so you can choose what people are saying about your builds??..that seems fake as fuck..only accepting good comments? pshh thats pathetic

    • Colton P says:

      Actually, I’ll go ahead and accept your comment. But I’m a bit more mature than this.

      First off, I apologize to those that don’t want to see this crap. But to prove a point, I’m going to allow this comment through.

      Yes, I moderate all of the comments. Yes, I reply to all of the comments. No, none of the comments are fake they’re all actual people that want to discuss the build and yes you are retarded.

      Have an awesome day man 🙂

  12. your retarded says:

    you know you can do a 4k build for under $1000, you are guiding these people in the wrong direction..you can do so much more with $2,000 plus spending money..no sli or crossfire? listing haswell cpu? lmao

    • Colton P says:

      I’m not saying that this is the only way to go, “your retarded” (By the way, awesome name for you! But your is misspelled, supposed to be *you’re).

      I’m waiting for the new hardware like the 1070/1080/480 to be fully on the market and then I plan to change the cards around for both this build and the $1,000 build. I realize that you can have the newer CPUs on there and most people go that route, I just wanted to save a bit of $$$ for a better card and for blu ray.

      This guide isn’t a “as is” thing. It’s a template to use for other’s own builds. Also I’m not a fan of SLI or Crossfire since there are more games that aren’t compatible with it than those that aren’t, though this build can totally be used for it.

  13. Sean Wauchope says:

    Any suggestions on a 4k monitor and also a PC desk?

    • Colton P says:

      Hey Sean,

      For a 4k monitor I’d definitely recommend this one by Asus would be the go to in my opinion. With 1ms response time and other specific features, it’s made for gaming.

      As far as a desk, this desk is the same desk that I use right now and I love it! I’m not sure if you’re maybe looking for something bigger or not but I’m able to fit my PC, monitor, keyboard and mouse all on the top portion.

      Let me know if those work for you man!

  14. Sean Wauchope says:

    When will the GTX 1080 get added? Need to order parts today. 🙂 Thanks.

    • Colton P says:

      I will add it in once the other edition, not the founders edition, is available on Amazon! If you can find one elsewhere definitely pick it up, it should be up on Amazon sometime this month!

      • Sean Wauchope says:

        What about all the other parts will they change or should I go ahead and order those then order the GTX 1080 once it’s available?

        • Colton P says:

          Well, I don’t expect them to change around a whole lot… if they were to change the other parts wouldn’t really be much different. I don’t think the market is going to change drastically once the new parts get on the market. I may use a i7 in the 6000 series if the budget point allows it, which means that there would also be a different motherboard.

          But the above CPU, board and what not are going to be insanely optimized for the future so no matter what, these parts or different ones that change, you’re going to be good to go. Especially having that 1080 in there.

  15. Austin says:

    How long will this last in the PC world until it is outdated?

    • Colton P says:

      This one specifically, quite a while. Many years man.

      But I want to let you know, new hardware is just about to come out and if you’re really getting your build together on this budget, it’d be best to wait till the end of this month or the next and checking back again to see an updated part list. It’ll be very much so well worth the wait as compared to what’s above right now.

  16. Johnnyonnyful says:

    Would an aftermarket heatsink be nessessary for a build like this?

    • Colton P says:

      If you’re looking to overclock the CPU right away then yes it would be. Otherwise if you were wanting to run the CPU at stock settings for a while then it’d be fine as is.

  17. Jerry says:

    Would you rocommend getting the used ones that i see in amazon? i saw the motherboard ontop for like 190, or is it a bit risky? and im planning on getting the cm storm stryker case instead of that one ontop

    • Colton P says:

      I really wouldn’t get anything used, maybe a case but definitely not a used motherboard or any other piece of hardware. Way too risky especially at this budget point and that most of the used stuff isn’t even from the Amazon warehouses.

  18. Jerry says:

    Any other motherboards that I can get for cheap? And is there anything else that I’m missing if I buy all these parts? I know I need Windows and I got a keyboard mouse, and speakers and a monitor, but is there anything else? And also what is a good cheap 4K monitor that you know?

    • Colton P says:

      You’re not missing anything else Jerry. Are you going to use a direct connection for internet via ethernet?

      For under $400 – this monitor by Dell – I’ve heard really good things about it. It has an option to set the response rates and stuff so it’s an ideal gaming monitor.

      • Jerry says:

        Ooh yeah i forgot ill also get the wifi thing, but is there any oher good cheap motherboards that i can use? this one seems to be out of stock in amazon and im trying to builds this asap, and ok ill look into that monitor

        • Colton P says:

          The board’s not out of stock, it’s just available from a different seller.

          If you want a cheaper board (The above one is about $400) then I’d also suggest this board for you as well – it’s the same board that I use with my build. Not as many features for overclocking and what not but it’d get the job done. The above board is a top of the line board for overclocking. It’s an extreme beast of a board so get it if you’ve got the room in your budget and if you want to maximize your overclocking down the road.

          And hey I’m not sure if you’ve already got your GPU or not but I want you to know that at the end of this month the new GTX 1070 comes out and in June the 1080 comes out. This build is going to use the 1080 within the next few months once it’s within Amazon’s marketplace – they are going to be the best of the best cards (supposedly)

          More info on them when they’re released then I’ll make a post regarding these cards within the next month or so.

          And possibly a cheaper power supply??? I changed some stuff and got to $1540, is there any motherboard and fan supply that can add up to $1,700?? or is that impossible? im just curious, thanks

            You could also add an aftermarket cooler that way whenever you do decide to overclock the CPU you’ll be able to right off the bat… are you using the above case?

            And for the power supply I guess you could go with like an 850w supply but I’d still recommend going with the above one. If you ever do SLI you’ll want the 1000w.

    Hey wassup I was just wondering because this is a legendary build, should I wait til Black Friday to buy all of these parts? Will it be way cheaper? Estimated? Thanks.

    • Colton P says:

      That’s a while to wait, Aiden. But typically yes, you’d be saving a bit from Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales.

      It was right around that time last year when I decided to put together my current build, you could check that build out and see how much I saved. There was a sale on the video card, SSD and a small sale on my motherboard.

      So yes, there would be some savings involved but if you don’t want to wait that long then it wouldn’t be entirely bad, the savings aren’t a super significant amount.
