The Best Gaming PC Under $600 In 2023

$600 Gaming PC
Quick Reminder
The total cost of our gaming builds generally don’t exceed the target budget. We always pay attention to the final cost and each of our builds strictly remains under a particular budget most of the time

Getting a smooth gaming experience is what every gamer dreams of and if you are looking to build a gaming PC under $600, then keep reading because you are at the right place. We help people around the globe in building their first gaming setup from scratch. Therefore, if you have a particular budget fixed for your gaming build, then we are here to help you get the best build of your life.

With 600 dollars in hand, you can generally expect to have smooth gameplay at 1080p resolution. In 2023, we have a lot of options in each PC component category to choose from. However, it is important to get the ones that provide you with the best value for the money. Therefore, we will be guiding you to select your own components without wasting several days on the research.

Is $600 Good For A Gaming PC?

Definitely. With 600 dollars it is totally possible to get the best budget components for your money. Whether you want an awesome CPU that will last several years or a GPU that will let you game for a couple of years easily, $600 will get the job done just fine. In this budget, the main components we are looking to buy are the CPU, GPU, RAM, Motherboard, Storage, Power Supply, and Case. For each component, we will set a particular budget and try to get the best one for that price.

You should be expecting around 50-60 fps on average on high settings at 1080p with this build. This PC won’t be able to max out all the graphical settings in all the games but most games will get you a good eye candy without compromising much on the fps. Generally speaking, this $600 build will compete with the current-gen gaming consoles under $500 but will have a lot of options to play with.

Before moving on to the list, it is important to know what components you should look for and why. This should give you an idea of how much powerful your PC hardware should be.


For the processor, we are looking at at least a 4-core CPU with hyperthreading. You should spend around $100-$150 on a CPU if you have a total budget of $600 for your gaming build. Fortunately, we have a good amount of CPUs from both AMD and Intel that have awesome budget gaming CPUs featuring 4-6 cores at this price range.


Unlike gaming builds for less than $500, you should try to get a better chipset motherboard to have more slots and ports. While it is more important to invest a good amount of money in your CPU and GPU, a motherboard that can support multiple components and peripherals at the same time is definitely recommended.


We are looking for at least 16GB of RAM here. Although 8GB will also get the job done, spending $10-$20 more won’t hurt our budget that bad. However, you will be seeing faster and better performance as a whole whether you play games or multitask.

Graphics Card

We are going to spend at least $150 or higher for the discrete GPU. At this price point, an iGPU is a big No. With $150-$250, we can get one of the best budget GPUs that can easily take the fps to 60 with high settings.

Storage Drive

The least I recommend is 500GB and for this build, I will never recommend a hard drive. A SATA or NVME SSD is the best option as they are faster and require less space. If possible, we can have 1 TB of storage or a combination of 500GB+1TB storage drives in the future.

Power Supply

You should never cheap out on your power supply. Your entire gaming build depends on it and a reliable PSU protects your system from faulty current and voltage. I recommend at least a 500W of reliable power supply from one of the popular manufacturers with at least 80 Plus White power efficiency rating and some PCI-E connectors for the GPU.


At this price, it is best to go with an ATX mid-tower case that supports both micro-ATX and ATX motherboards. An ATX tower will also give you more space to work with and will allow you to add some more components in the future.

Parts List For $600 Gaming PC


Intel Core i3 12100F
Intel Core i3 12100F
Cores/Threads- 4/8
Clock- 3.3/4.3GHz
TDP- 58W-89W
Overclocking- No

The value for the price we get with the Intel Core i3 12100F is currently unmatched. While initially launched for over $120, this CPU is currently around $100 which makes it a perfect option for most budget gaming builds. We could go with something like a Ryzen 5500 but that may result in an increase in overall expense due to a B450/B550 motherboard.

Therefore, the money we will save can be invested into a better GPU, higher RAM, better case, and more storage. All of this will make your build absolutely fantastic and better upgradable.

The Core i3 12100F comes with 4 cores and 8 threads clocked at 3.3/4.3GHz. It is a locked chipset and hence, we can save even more money on the motherboard as we don’t need overclocking features. This chip can handle almost any budget to mid-end GPU without bottlenecking the latter. Moreover, 4 cores and 8 threads are sufficient for any latest title as well as for any office work.

Graphics Card

XFX Speedster QICK210 Radeon RX 6500 XT Black
XFX Speedster QICK210 Radeon RX 6500 XT Black
Architecture- RDNA 2
Stream Processors- 1024
Clock- up to 2815MHz

Despite being one of the worst GPUs due to its PCI-E limitation, the RX 6500 XT is still the best you can get for under $200 and that’s because we don’t have a lot of options right now. The RX 6500 XT is a powerful budget GPU that can play almost any game on high settings with consistent 60 fps on average. Some games may require some graphics tweaks but overall, it is a much better option than the GTX 1650 as it is cheaper and performs better.

The card comes with 4GB of VRAM and up to 2815MHz of boost clock which is insanely high. Coming to the card’s main problem, we know that the 6500 XT works better on PCI-E Gen 4.0 slot, and therefore, the motherboard I selected has the Gen 4.0 interface giving you the highest possible compatibility and bandwidth to get good performance. So, you should ignore that bandwidth thing totally.


TEAMGROUP T-Force Vulcan Z 16GB DDR4
TEAMGROUP T-Force Vulcan Z 16GB DDR4
RAM size- 16GB(2x 8GB)
Type- DDR4
Clock- 3200MHz
CL Timings- 16-18-18-38

The RAM we used here is dual sticks of 8GB DDR4 RAM modules. As a dual channel is better than a single channel, I recommend using 2 sticks instead of a single 16GB RAM. The brand is TeamGroup which produces one of the best budget memory kits in the world and for this build, 16GB of RAM is more than enough. The clock frequency of the modules is 3200MHz and has good tight timings of 16-18-18-38 which will offer faster operation. Now whether you play video games or open a dozen Chrome tabs, you won’t have to worry about your PC freezing or crashing due to a lot of loads.


Chipset- H610
RAM support- 64GB, 3200MHz
Storage- 4x SATA, 1x M.2
PCI-E slots- 1x PCI-E x1, 1x PCI-E x16

For the i3 12100F, we have two chipsets that will be fit for use. The entry-level H610 and the B660. The problem with the H610 is that most motherboards with this chipset are close to the pricing of many budget B660 motherboards but offer fewer features. Therefore, we are going with the Gigabyte B560M DS3H V2 motherboard that is micro-ATX in form factor and features 2x DIMM slots for supporting up to 64GB of memory, and comes with a single M.2 slot for fast NVME SSDs.

The board comes with a single PCI-E x16 slot gen 4.0 for the graphics card and 1x PCI-E x1 slot for expansion cards like Wifi cards for wireless internet connectivity. For peripheral connectivity, there are 6x USB Type-A ports and dual PS/2 ports for older peripherals.


Silicon Power A60 1TB
Silicon Power A60 1TB
Brand- Silicon Power
Capacity- 1TB
Interface- NVME
Read/Write- 2200/1600MB/s

We have set a good budget for the storage drive and we are going with a single 1TB of NVME SSD that offers high read/write speeds and enough space for storing multiple games. The Silicon Power 1TB SSD features up to 2200MB/s of sequential read speed which will boot the operating system and applications in a couple of seconds. You will see this insane speed in games too where the loading screen will disappear in no time.

Now with just one M.2 slot acquired on the motherboard, you can add another one in the second M.2 slot or you can add another 1 or 2TB SATA SSD if you ever run out of space but for now, I think that this is sufficient.

Power Supply

Thermaltake Toughpower GX2 80+ Gold 600W
Thermaltake Toughpower GX2 80+ Gold 600W
Wattage- 600W
Power Efficiency- 80+ Gold
Type- Non-Modular
Warranty- 5 years

To power all the components, we can use a 500W PSU but to leave some room for future upgrades, we are going with the Toughpower GX2 600W PSU that features 80 Plus Gold-rated power efficiency. This PSU reaches up to 90% in power efficiency on typical loads and provides all the connectors and cables for your components.

It has tight voltage regulation, low ripple noise, and is ultra-quiet in operation. With Japanese capacitors, it provides better reliability than its competitors for the same price and gives you 5 years of warranty. The only CON is that it is non-modular which will give you thick cables but they are well-sleeved for preventing any physical damage.


Corsair Carbide Series 175R RGB
Corsair Carbide Series 175R RGB
Type- ATX
Dimensions- 418 x 210 x 450mm
Weight- 6.1Kg
Material- Steel, Tempered Glass

For this case, there are plenty of options with an ATX form factor between $50 and $100. Here, we are going with the Corsair Carbide 175R RGB case which is one of the most elegant cases you will find for this price. It features a fully brushed aluminum front panel with a Corsair logo at the top. That logo is not a sticker but an actual RGB logo that can be controlled via popular RGB software.

The case comes with a tempered glass side panel to see through and a compact yet spacious interior to support most components. The case can support CPU coolers up to 160mm tall and GPUs up to 330mm long. Moreover, it has great support for case fans as well as radiators. You can either install up to 6x 120mm fans in total or up to 360mm radiators at the front and up to 240mm radiators at the top.

So, there is a lot of room for upgrades, and the cable management system is also neat with multiple routing holes and good clearance at the back.

Is $600 Gaming PC Upgradable?

Definitely. Our $600 gaming build can be easily upgraded anytime. We chose parts carefully so that you don’t have to change all the components for a decent uplift in gaming performance. Whether you want to upgrade the CPU or the GPU, you don’t have to spend money on other components.

For this build, the first upgrade I would like to suggest is the CPU. While the i3 12100F is pretty decent and can handle most mid-end GPUs easily, with some higher-end GPUs, it will certainly bottleneck your graphics card. The best upgrade will be getting a 12th or 13th gen Core i5 or i7 processor. Core i7s will be overkill for any gaming build today and it is recommended to go with a locked one unless you really need overclocking.

For overclockable Core processors, you will need an unlocked chipset. Therefore, the total cost will increase dramatically as you would need a Z590 chipset motherboard which will cost around $$150-$300 depending on the edition you are buying. However, it is best to stay with a locked processor and upgrade the GPU before upgrading the motherboard.

A decent GPU upgrade will be getting an RTX 3060 or higher. This will allow you to play games at 1440p resolution and you can also turn on ray tracing in supported games. The next upgrade should be your storage for which I suggest getting another 1TB or 2TB SSD. For the RAM, PSU, and Case, I don’t think you would need to upgrade them very soon as 16GB RAM is adequate for a couple of more years easily. Also, the PSU has a 650W capacity which can power most components including a high-end GPU.

As for the case, the Carbide 175R is already a premium mid-tower with good functionality and great component support. After getting over these necessary components, I recommend using an aftermarket CPU cooler for lower thermals and better looks. A budget air cooler will do the job but an AIO is a permanent solution whether you upgrade to a locked CPU or an unlocked one. Moreover, you can add more chassis fans for better airflow inside the case.

Best PreBuilt PCs Under $600

We understand that custom gaming PCs are not for everyone. If you don’t have time to build one or if you don’t know how to build it by yourself, you can get a PreBuilt gaming system. Currently, there is a handful of PreBuilts under $600 and I have listed the ones that are the best for the money.

Again, we strongly recommend getting built by yourself or buying the parts and getting the PC assembled by someone who knows how to do it as the PreBuilts under $600 are not close in performance to the gaming PC we recommended above.

Kepler Systems Genesis Gaming Computer
Kepler Systems Genesis Gaming Computer
Intel Core i5 2500
Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 Ti
USB Wifi and Windows 10 Pro

For around $530, the Kepler Systems Genesis computer brings a dedicated GPU with an Intel Core i5 2500 CPU. This CPU is very old now and therefore, uses 8GB DDR3 RAM. This can’t compete with the latest gen CPUs but with the GTX 750 Ti, you can play most games on low settings at 1080p. This PC is suitable for those who would like to play older titles that are less graphical intensive or esports games that don’t require powerful specs.

The best feature of this PC is its case which is a beautiful mid-tower that is well-built and can support a lot of components by default. It comes with a tempered glass front and side panel with 4x 120mm RGB fans pre-installed. There is also a PSU shroud and enough space inside to install big coolers and GPUs. For storage, you will get a 500GB SSD and Wifi, Windows 10 Pro pre-installed which you won’t be getting on the custom gaming build.

Overall, it is a casual gaming PC that doesn’t appeal to us too much.

ViprTech ProGaming PC
ViprTech ProGaming PC
Intel Core i5 4570
Nvidia GTX 1050
Wifi and Windows 10 Pro

Next, we have the ViprTdh Pro gaming PC that costs less than $550 and features much better specs than the Kepler Systems. It has an Intel Core i5 4570 that is noticeably faster than the i5 2500 and has one of the best budget GPUs. The Nvidia GTX 1050 comes with 2GB of VRAM and can play most games on medium settings at 1080p.

Other specs include 8GB DDR3 RAM and a 1TB hard drive storage. It would have been better if the PC came with an SSD instead as it makes things a lot better. All of these components are fitted inside a great-looking mid-tower chassis that features 4x 120mm RGB fans and a decent ventilation system from the sides of the front panel. It has a long PSU shroud with a 500W of PSU and a good cable management system for routing cables from all sides inside the case.

2021 HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop
2021 HP Pavilion Gaming Desktop
AMD Ryzen 5 5600G
Radeon RX 5500 4GB
Wifi and Windows 11 Home

Last but not the least, the HP Pavilion is a little over $500 but has significantly better specs than the PCs listed above. It comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 5600G APU that is a powerful 6-core 12-thread CPU and also features a Vega 7 iGPU. It is combined with the Radeon RX 5500 which is a fantastic budget GPU that competes with the RX 6500 XT and doesn’t have any PCI-E bandwidth limitation.

The reason why it is still inferior to our recommended custom gaming build is that other components aren’t as good as they could have been for the money. However, it is definitely much better when it comes to the CPU. Other specs include 8GB DDR4 RAM and a 256GB NVME SSD. You will also get pre-installed Wifi and Windows 10 Home and a Keyboard/Mouse combo to start gaming right away.

iBUYPOWER Pro Gaming PC Slate5MR 253i
iBUYPOWER Pro Gaming PC Slate5MR 253i
Intel Core i3 10105F
Radeon RX 6500 XT 4GB
Wifi and Windows 11 Home

iBuypower Pro Slate5MR 253i is perhaps one of the best prebuilt gaming computers for $600. It features a superior CPU-GPU combo compared to the previous ones and will be ideal for 1080p high settings gaming. The processor is a quad-core i3 101005F with a clock speed of up to 4.4GHz that comes with the Radeon RX 6500 XT GPU.

It comes bundled with a gaming keyboard and mouse that will let you start gaming right away and you also get pre-installed Wifi and Windows 11 Home. The case is mid-tower chassis with multiple pre-installed RGB fans at the front and the rear for good airflow and a side tempered glass panel to show off your rig.

iBuypower is providing a 1-year warranty on parts and labor and a free lifetime of US tech support for any troubleshooting.

  5. I’m trying to find a windows 7 Professional that I can install on this new PC build. Any ideas where I should be looking?

  6. I’m trying to find a windows 7 Professional that I can install on this new PC build. Any ideas where I should be looking?

  7. This will be my first PC build. I’m very grateful for your build outlines. The local Fry’s tried to set me up for $1700. But this build fits my budget much better, and makes my wife happier!
    3 questions: 1) is there room in this case for an SSD? And 2) will upgrading the RAM to 32Gb make any problems? 3) other than thermal paste what other “extras” will I need to build this PC?

    Thanks for your time

    • Okay, blu ray players, is there one you favor?

    • hmm. 1. You can add a few SSD’s with hard drives as well.
      2. Upgrading to 32gb ram is not recommended. It won’t make any difference. But you can upgrade to 16gb if you want to. 8gb is still perfect for any build.
      3. You don’t need anything. Even a small amount of thermal paste comes already applied on heat sink. But you can buy one if you want.

      • Thanks for your reply. I’m going to order the parts now. If I have any further questions I will let you know

  8. Thanks so much for this. This will be my first custom pc. I swapped the 1TB HDD for a 250GB SSD and will likely swap that out later for more storage. I also switched the 6400 for the 6500. With microcenter sales and combo discounts plus 15% off 3 orders, I was able to build mine for $560 after tax. Here’s my build

  9. aoa brother this motherboard as u said has no vga or dvi port so i have a led that that both dvi and vga port but how will connect it to this motherboard if i buY it?

    • Does your monitor have hdmi? If yes use hdmi. Otherwise use a hdmi cable with hdmi to vga convertor.or get a similar motherboard with these ports.

      • right and one thing bro what is the difference between sata 3 motherboard and 2?what difference it makes?

        • The difference is in speed. Sata 2 is older interface of connecting hard drives to motherboards and is slower than the sata 3. Almost half the speed. But the ports are similar and sata 3 is backwards compatible. Means you can connect a sata 3 hdd or ssd to a sata 2 port also but it will reduce the transfer speed a lot.

        • ohh and please tell me thatthe motherboard above has only sata 3 ports?

        • It has 4 x sata 3 ports and no sata 2 ports.

  10. aoa brother my cousion has a dell optiplex 3020 i5. he wants to install a gtx 970 on it?first tell me does that pc support it.according to my research it has one pcie x16 slot and will it fit into its casing? and does the board support a 600 watt power supply ? please help

    • If the motherboard has one pci e x 16 slot and a 24 pin power connector then you can install a new Psu(minimum 500 watts) and a gtx 970 if the case has enough space.

      • how do i know it the case has enough case and how to find its motherboard model??

        • If your processor is i5 even if it is 1st gen the motherboard will definitely be having full compatibility with any graphics card and psu. But just open the case to find out whether it can support standard ps2 power supply and how much long your gtx 970 will be. If your case is a mini tower then you will need a single fan gtx 970 or if the case is mid tower it can support two fan gtx 970. Just measure the length of your case where you will install your gpu and check the full length of the gpu you are buying.

        • bro i checked the details for dell optiplex 3020 says it supports upto four pcie cards what does it mean?

        • thanks alot for ur reply 🙂

  11. how much time will this pc last?

  12. which is better, this or the killer?

    Now please comment on this build an tell me should i make more changes?do i need a fan other then stock if i am not overclocking?and am i missing any part

      • Everything is fine. Go for it.

        • thank u bro i am thinking to replace gtx 970 with msi r9 390 because theres not much price difference and am also thinking to use a 600 watt powersupply as well. bro just tell me wich optical drive should i use which can run both dvds and cds?also tell me that lan card is pre installed on motherboard?

        • For Odd, Asus dvd writer will cost you around $20.

          If you mean wifi adapter by lan card, then you have to buy it separately and you can get one as cheap as $14.

          If you mean a custom cpu cooler by 3rd party fan, then it’s only needed if your cpu heats too much. Generally i5’s and i7’s can handle high temperatures easily and i5 6400 is locked so you can only boost it up a few hundred Mhz and there is no need of buying a custom cooler for it. The stock one will be fine.

        • kindly also tell me whats a sound card should i install it?

        • Sound card is only useful if you want the highest quality of sound but its really not that much worth as the motherboard above has already very good hd quality built in audio feature.

        • thanks and bro from lan card i meant does the motherboard mentioned above has a ethernet cable slot to run internet?

        • Yes of course. Now every motherboard comes with at least one rj 45 port.

        • bro so what is actually a lan card and whats its purpose?

        • Lan card is used in those motherboards which don’t have LAN port pre-installed in them. Or someone may buy if the lan port is damaged or want to have an extra one.

        • whats the purpose of lan port and does the motherboard mentioned above has it?

        • The lan port is used for connecting the Lan or Wan Wire which is used for internet. For example I use a Grid device for wifi whose wire comes down to my system. It goes into the router and another LAN wire is connected from the router to my computer.
          And yes the above motherboard has it.

        • aoa bro i wanted to say that i have these all parts costs alot more then 850 dollars so can i cut the cost by replacing i5 6400 with i3 6100 + msi r9 390? how much is the difference it makes in fps?will my graphic card cover the kills in fps in i3 in 1080p gaming?

        • There are a lot of versions of r9 390 which cost below $350. But I would never go with a high end graphics card combined with a entry level cpu like i3. R9 390 is best with either amd processors like fx 8350 or i5’s.

        • is gigabyte r9 390 a good option as compared to the msi?

        • bro i live in pakistan and some items cant be shipped to pakistan from amazon and in normal shops all the things cost alot more what should i do 🙁

        • I live in India and the cost is more than in US. It’s because of the Shipping charges and VAT. We have to pay it. We cannot escape it.

        • bro so is it normal if I find the msi gtx 970 to be 420 dollars in Pakistan? should I buy it then?

        • You have no choice other than that. But you can also buy a gtx 960 if you can’t afford a 970.

        • i was wondering is this motherboard compatible with gtx 980ti in future if i upgrade.

        • Bro this motherboard is compatible with every graphics card including high end ones like titan X, R9 fury and others.

  14. AND bro plz also tell me that is msi gtx 970 better or Gigabyte GV-R939G1 GAMING-8GD G1 Gaming Graphics Card AMD R9 390 512 Bit GDDR5 8GB 2xDVI/HDMI/3xDP
    They almost cost same price but please tell me which should i use and does the motherboard i have listed below supports both of these or not?

    • R9 390 is better than gtx 970.

      • bro but i have read reviews that r9 390 heats up quickly and makes alot of noise as compared to msi gtx 970 which is a very solid card???

        • The difference in temperature and noise is very less. The only big difference is the power consumption but you will be able to run the card on 500 watts power supply and better if you buy a 600 watts. R9 390 is better for latest titles and gives even better performance at 1440p and 2160p.

  15. aoa brother i have listed the parts that i am thinking to build a gaming pc based upon it.

    Now bro please tell me that are all the parts compatible with each other?how is my built? can i reduce some of the price from this build?AM i missing some part? AND THE PARTS I CHOOSE ARE CORRECT OR NOT?

    • Bro Bro, wait. ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 is an AMD motherboard, you cannot put an Intel processor in it. Either get the mentioned motherboard in the article or get a motherboard with either H170 or Z170 chipset. I5 6400 is only compatible to motherboards that have LGA 1151 socket. The next thing is the memory. You have to choose ddr4 ram modules. DDR3 is not compatible with LGA 1151 motherboards. Only DDR3L are compatible which you won’t find easily and there is no need in getting DDR3 ram. Get 8gb ddr4 memory stick.

  16. bro which one is better for 1080p gaming Intel Skylake Core i5 6400 or intel i3 6100. intel i3 is also cheaper but tell me hows its performance??

  17. Hi thanks for the quick response its much appreciated! Unfortunately my budget wont stretch that far. in uk the i5 6500 is almost twice the price of the i3 :(, but my old heap of junk pc is almost at an end so need a good solid pc to last me the next few years, will this suffice??

  18. Hi Sarfaz have been using your site for some guidance on builds as well as some others (shame on me lol), and am deciding to try for my first build and have selected some parts i wondered if you would take a look over. My build is slightly over the $600 threshold as i have included an SSD also for the OS. I have used Partpicker for the components but will purchase from Newegg UK. The total for the build is around the £480 mark or $694 if that makes it easier. As i said a little over $600 due ot added SSD. Partpicker link for the build is any feedback or suggestions gratefully received 🙂

    • Although it’s fine but I suggest you to go with i5 as upgrading a CPU is not an easy task. You can always buy a SSD later. What’s more important is overall performance of your computer. SSD will only decrease loading time of windows and applications but you won’t get that much fast speed on i3 as you will get with i5. i5 will last you much longer. I also do the same.
