How to build a PC for games up to R$ 3000

In times of crisis, you need to innovate and look hard for cheaper alternatives to play your favorite games

Do you dream of owning a gaming PC but have no idea how to choose the parts or what suits your profile best? And then, better yet, want to spend little? So stay here in this post and I'll help you build your PCzão to beat some games. Already warning you at the beginning that this post will be a little long, so below I'll leave a summary in case you have any ideas and want to go to something more punctual.

Attention: Prices are estimated and may vary between the time of posting and when you are reading. So, it is always recommended to do a good research and compare values. Especially with the high demand for components that has made everything more expensive in recent times, it's good to keep an eye out for promotions and opportunities to get the best prices on parts and components,

What to expect from a PC for 3300 real games?

First of all, it is good to make it clear that we are in a hardware crisis. Never have the parts been so expensive. A PC for games that you spent 2000 reais, will now spend from R $ 3000 to R $ 4000. It is also important to remember that the amount considered will be cash, and there may be a price increase if the payment option chosen is different.

That said, before starting the pieces, it is very important that you know that with this value, you will not be playing all the games in ultra in 4k. Our goal here is to always try the Full HD resolution at 60fps, which, of course, in some games was below this average. But of course, if you don't care too much about the graphics, but about your fun, then let's get started.

The order of the list will be in the following order, and parts such as cabinet and aesthetics will not be included in the calculation, due to being something malleable and the personal taste of each one: Motherboard, processor, video card (if any), RAM memory, HD, source.

1 - PC for games up to 3300 reais in Brazil

Well, at this value in our country, we have some difficulties in terms of video cards, so a good option would be to take a processor with integrated GPU from the line Ryze, from AMD.

For those who do not know, the ideal for a gaming computer is to have a dedicated video card, so that it and the processor work simultaneously for good gaming performance.

The cool thing about using an integrated series GPU Ryze, is that it is a great processor to push an off-board video card in the future, giving you an updated platform on which you can add a little money to buy the long-awaited video card.

1.1 - Asus EX-A320M-Gaming AMD AM4 motherboard

As stated earlier, we will be working with AMD's Ryzen platform. So, we need a motherboard with Socket AM4 for processors. The chosen board is the Asus EX-A320M-Gaming. This is an AM4 input board, however, it fulfills its function very well in this setup that we will set up here. The most important thing about this board is that it has support for third-gen Ryzen processors, which is something we'll talk about in the next topic.

Either way, the card has 4 USB 3.1 ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports. Good for those who have many peripherals to connect to the computer. It also has support for RAM memory up to 2666MHz frequency, which is very important for when we have an integrated GPU, which we will talk about in the next topic as well.

IMPORTANT: This motherboard often does not come with an updated BIOS for third generation processors. Then, contact the store after purchase and ask to ship with the BIOS already updated.

ASUS PRIME A320M-K motherboard AMD Ryzen AM4 DDR4 HDMI VGA M.2 USB 3.1 Micro-ATX
  • Powered by AMD Ryzen AM4 7th generation Athlon and HD 2000 series processors to maximize connectivity and speed with NVMe M 2 support for 32GB DDR4 USB 3 0 and Gigabit LAN
  • 5 Protection III hardware level protections provide component longevity and reliability
  • Patent-pending SafeSlot Core reinforced PCIe enclosure prevents damage from heavy GPUs
  • Fan Xpert provides advanced fan controls for optimized cooling
  • Industry-leading Japanese Capacitor Driven 8-Channel HD Audio Features an Integrated LED Illuminated Design with Windows 10 Compatible Operating System

1.2 - AMD Ryzen 5 3400G processor

The processor chosen at the time is the Ryzen 5 3400G, the most current model in the Ryzen series with integrated video. The processor is a quad-core with 8 threads that has a frequency of 3.7GHz and 4.2GHz in turbo. In addition to having the integrated GPU Radeon RX Vega 11, which is the big star of our CPU.

Image result for ryzen 5 3400g

Its integrated GPU ends up being quite strong, making it push many games, and of course, a good video card in the future, in which we will give some indications at the end of the post. The problem with the GPU, in addition to its limitation, is also to depend on the proper functioning of the other parts of the computer, especially RAM, the subject of our next topic.

1.3 - T-Force Vulcan Pichau 4GB 8MHz DDR2666 RAM

Well, we have two things we must do so that our memories always perform as well as possible. One of them is to always set the highest frequency supported by our motherboard, making the memories to give their best and deliver the highest speed, and the second is to put the combs in Dual-Channel, making them communicate better with each other and considerably improving performance. In this case, we are left with the T-Force Vulcan Pichau 8GB 2666MHz

Here we chose to put only one memory, but, if you don't have a very tight budget, we recommend putting two. As the integrated GPU pulls a lot, I believe that the usual 8GB will not do much, so it would be better to put 16GB, if it fits your budget. Therefore, with 8GB you will run fewer games.

1.4 - HD Seagate BarraCuda 1TB or SSD Pichau Gaming 256GB

Here, the choice is a little malleable. If you are the type of person who needs extra space on your PC, you like to leave a lot of games installed and so on. Opt for Barracuda's 1tb HD, it will serve you well.

  • - Operation (ambient, min): 0 - Operation (Unit housing, max.): 60 - Non-operational (ambient): –40 to 70 - Halogen free - RoHS

However, I strongly recommend the 256GB Pichau SSD. Despite its smaller footprint, the SSD will greatly improve the usability of the computer in general, making programs and applications open faster, just like Windows. In games, the difference is small, having a real impact only at the time of loading screens, due to speed, but in FPS, the difference is zero.

1.5 - Corsair 450W 80 Plus White VS450 Power Supply

Here we go from Corsair VS450. According to the website outervision.com, this configuration, with 8 hours a day playing non-stop, would cost 179W. As we have a little slack in the budget so far and I know that in the future you'll want to put in a dedicated video card, I'm putting in a very reliable power supply from Corsair, which can handle the power even of the RTX line input cards from nVidia.

1.6 - Value

The total of the gaming PC was 2.899,99, if you choose the 1tb HD, and 2.909,99, if you choose the 256gb SSD. Bearing in mind that these amounts are valid for cash payments and may vary over time.

1.7 - Performance Test

Below, a video from the yasin erkan channel, testing a more or less similar setup and performing the games, so you have a base of what the configuration has capacity.

  • Beyond Two Souls: Average 33 fps with the game running at High quality in Full HD.
  • The Witcher 3: Average 32 fps with the game running at Low quality in Full HD.
  • PUBG: Average 49 fps with the game running at competitive preset (all low and high distance rendering) in Full HD.
  • GTA V: Average 91 fps with the game running at Low quality in Full HD.
  • Fortnite: Average 92 fps with the game running at Low quality in Full HD.

2 - PC for games using the used and imported market

Well, if you choose the used market, we can take a little more performance this time when building your PC for games. Remembering that it is safer to buy new parts, as we have a store warranty and we know the origin of the products. If you want to take a risk, taking the right and careful steps, we can extract a good performance at a very nice price.

For purchases of international products, we will use Aliexpress. Website for purchasing products shipped from China. If you have any questions regarding taxation, delivery time and more, leave in the comments of the post that I will serve you 🙂.

2.1 - Maxsun Challenger II A320M.2-VH motherboard

Maxsun is a brand that has taken a lot of place on international sites, due to its great cost-benefit. Currently, on the official Aliexpress link, we have 445 reviews, 82% of which are 5 stars, maintaining an average of 4.7 / 5. The motherboard has the same chipset as the Asus board that we use in the PC assembled in Brazil. So, it basically has the same functions.

2.2 - AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor

Here, we already have a big difference from the previous PC. O AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor it doesn't have integrated video like the 3400G, but in terms of performance, it does better. The processor has 6 cores and 12 threads, which operate at 3.4GHz and 3.9GHz in turbo. The processor purchased by China, new with the cooler and everything, ends up leaving almost 600 reais (!!!) cheaper than the same processor purchased in Brazil, making it more worthwhile to wait 1 or 2 months for the product to arrive.

2.3 - RX 560 4GB XFX video card

Now let's go to the first used item in our configuration, which is the video card, which certainly marks the difference of this gaming PC. On Aliexpress the used video card market is very strong.

How to Build a PC for Games Up to R$3000 | h38348bae8ac44d82a4ca7ade405eef9cb | amd, hardware, pc, ryzen, technology | gaming pc tips/guides, technology

A RX 560 4GB XFX is equivalent to GTX 1050, for those who have doubts about its competitor. This plate is a USED item, however, as stated in the description, it was not used for cryptocurrency mining or anything like that, just for common use. I myself already bought a video card from Aliexpress, from the used GTX 960 model, which arrived without any problem and works until today (almost 1 year after purchase), without any problem. The RX 560 has GDDR5 memory, with DirectX 12 support, and 256 bit.

2.4 – 2x Kingston Hyperx Fury 8GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM Memory

Continuing from the imported ones, we have the Kingston Hyperx Fury 8GB, an 8gb RAM memory from the Kingston company, which has a heatsink. The memory has almost the same price as here in Brazil, but due to the video card, we have to lower the cost at all, right?

2.5 - Kingspec 480GB SATA SSD

The price difference of Chinese SSDs doesn't differentiate much from Picau's SSDs either. So, if you have a bigger budget and don't want to wait so long, it's worth buying in Brazil. O Kingspec 480GB it has an average speed of 480mb/s by 480mb/s (read/write).

2.6 - Corsair 450W 80 Plus White VS450 Power Supply

Anyway, now that we already have a video card, we can keep the same power supply as the Brazilian PC, and the recommended power is 418W. The source quietly handles the load of the PC, even with a lot connected. Remembering that I don't recommend the purchase of fonts or HD's from China, as due to the weight of the font or the fragility of the HD, it has high chances of defect or rate.

3- Intermediate PC: how much would it be?

3.1 – Asus Tuf Gaming B460M Plus Motherboard or Asus TUF GAMING B550M-PLUS Motherboard

The B460M from an intermediate chipset would be a good choice to build our setup, with possibilities for more expansions and also that it won't cost as much as some more advanced ones. Smoothly accepts the latest 10th gen processors from Intel. It has an excellent construction and communication speed that will handle this PC.

3.7 - Value

Our intermediate PC, in times of crisis, would cost R $ 9.843,66. Once again (always her), the scarcity of video card weighed on the price. A year ago, if someone told me that we would be paying that price on an intermediate video card, I would say that that person would be crazy.

We will use a dual chanel, with two HyperGB 8GB modules, Predator DDR4 RGB model. The processor we recommend can withstand the frequency of 4000MHz perfectly, as well as the motherboard. If you want to add more memory (32GB, for example), feel free, but we believe that 16GB is enough. The Predator DDR4's modern heat sink ensures that both your computer's appearance and temperature will be perfect.

4.6 - Corsair RM850x 850W power supply

Finally, in terms of power and power to withstand this bixão, we recommend the Corsair RM850x Power Supply, 850W. I think it is enough to handle the stride, but if you want to get a 1000W, it would be a good one too.

4.7 - Value

The total of the monster PC for games (and whatever else you want to do) was R $ 32.433,99 or R $ 35.184,67 (if you choose 4 memories). Certainly the exorbitant price of the video card made this price much higher, due to its scarcity in the market. In situations considered to be normal, the price of the video card would fall around R $ 8000 to R $ 9000. Remembering that these amounts are valid for the payment in cash.

4.8 - Performance test

Below is a video of the MW Informática channel, with a setup very similar to the one we set up, with several game tests in some resolutions.

  • Battlefield 5: Average 80 fps with the game running at Ultra quality in 4K.
  • Cyberpunk 2077: Average 46 fps with the game running at Ultra quality in 4K.
  • CS:GO: Average 430 fps with the game running at Ultra quality in 4K.

Quick FAQ

What's the best setup for a gaming PC?

It depends on how much you can spend and what games you want to play. If you are looking for a PC for triple A games and with high resolutions and lots of FPS this type of computer will be more expensive than a PC for online games like Fortnite or PUBG. So, you have to assess how much you can spend and what your gaming intentions are.

What is most important when building a PC Gamer?

In a gaming PC, the most important parts are the Video Card and Processor. These two components are the most important to play with quality and are responsible for generating game graphics.

What is the difference between a PC and a PC gamer?

The PC gamer is a machine with gaming hardware. While a conventional PC has low or medium performance components, geared towards routine tasks like texting, spreadsheets or web browsing, a gamer PC will have more expensive and powerful components inside used to generate game graphics.

Do I need a PC gamer to play games?

It depends of the game. Modern games with detailed visuals require more computer processing power and may not work on a conventional home computer.

So, which one is more worth it?

I will leave this question to you. In fact, some things have to be taken into account at the time of purchase. Of course we see the PC for games from China with used parts performing better, but how long will these parts last? How soon will they arrive in Brazil? Is there a possibility that my order will disappear in the middle of traffic?

In fact, assembling the PC here in Brazil has its advantage, especially if the safety and useful life of the parts are taken into account, since they are all new and with a specialized warranty here in Brazil. So, if you have a little more than 3000 reais now and want to do a future upgrade on the PC assembled here in Brazil, I recommend that you save some money to buy a super 1660 or a 1660ti, which will certainly run all games in full HD 60fps .

Recalling that international parts are priced subject to the dollar value and that we do not calculate freight either, as it varies from region to region.
