A $2000 gaming PC is for those that are looking for overkill levels of performance. If you’re an enthusiast or you want to start out with a PC that will stand the longest test of time for many years to come, then this is the type of PC build to go for.
At this price range, you’ll be ready for high-end 1440p and 4K gaming. If you’re planning on playing at 1080p then you’re better off going with a lower budget build as this type of performance surpasses 1080p gaming so much to the point where it’s redundant to play at 1080p.
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 share what you can expect out of a build like this.

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 to save some money and to not waste your time.
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.
