A $2000 gaming PC is for those that have an overkill budget for an overkill PC. It’s not necessary to spend this much on a gaming PC when you want a super high level of gaming performance, but if you’re able to… then why not?
If you want to know how to build a gaming pc for around a $2000 price point then you should follow the part list below. This guide will show you how to go about building it as well as sharing what you can expect out of a build like this.

A $2000 gaming PC build is for those of you that want to game beyond 1080p and have gaming performance that is out of this world. Although some of the most recommended parts aren’t going to always be available, they are necessary to make this build worthy of the price point.
The RTX 3080 (whenever it’s available) with a Ryzen 3900X provides performance power for the far future. From 1440p to even higher quality 4K gaming performance, this build is capable of everything and anything.
You should expect 100+ FPS at 1440p with most of today’s newer titles and 200+ FPS at 1080p with a build like this. 60+ FPS will be possible at 4K resolution as well.
This build is for those of you that want to have a high performing PC that’s capable of resolutions that are higher than 1080p. If you aren’t planning on playing at higher resolutions then I’d recommend looking at some of the other builds instead.
How To Build This $2000 Gaming PC
I’d highly recommend following something like the video guide below when it comes to putting this PC together. It’s a great guide and it is easy to follow!
There may be some parts that are different from this build in the video embedded below and that’s okay! If there is another part that you don’t understand then you should look through the manual of that part and/or look up other video tutorials as well.
If you find yourself having trouble understanding a certain part then you should always search for the specific part and how to install it on YouTube, there are plenty of videos out there showcasing how each part can be installed.
For example, if you aren’t sure how to install your solid state drive then simply search “How to install a solid state drive into PC” on YouTube and you’ll find plenty of material to follow.
Also, you don’t have to use the above case for your build!
You can use almost any other mid tower case if the above case isn’t your style. Feel free to browse the mid tower cases on Amazon and if you find one that you think you’d like to use, link it to me in the comments below and I’ll be able to let you know if it’d work or not.
After putting your rig together, you’ll need to install your operating system, drivers and other software. You’ll also need to get connected online.
There are a couple of posts here on the site that you should read up on if you need to know how to install your operating system as well as getting connected online.
