A $900 gaming PC build will up your type of hardware up a bit. By going up another notch (compared to the $800 build) you will be able to have more room to build and be able to have a high performing build.
If you want to know how to build a gaming pc for around the $900 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.
$900 PC Build Part List:
Last Updated: November 24th, 2020
Case – DeepCool MATREXX 55
Motherboard – ASRock B550 Phantom Gaming 4 ATX AM4 Motherboard
Storage – Samsung 860 Evo 500 GB 2.5″ SSD
Estimated Final Price: $880-$960
A $900 gaming PC today will be similar in performance to the $800 PC. This isn’t usually the case, but with how current hardware is priced today, that’s simply how it is right now.
The RX 5600 XT card combined with a Ryzen 5 3600X provides an excellent level of performance at 1080p resolution.
Depending on the optimizations with a specific title, you can expect 100+ FPS on most of the newer, well optimized titles at ultra settings and you will easily get 60+ FPS on some of the “not-so-optimized” titles that are out.
If you are looking for a high performing 1080p gaming build that is able to use a bigger motherboard and a higher level of quality with other parts then this will be the build to keep your eyes on.
How To Build This $900 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.
