How to build a capable gaming PC for around £800

Phanteks P400S

PC gaming doesn’t need to cost a fortune, especially with latest hardware being capable of handling even the most demanding of games. We’ll be recommending a PC build that costs just over £800, including GPU, CPU, motherboard and everything else you’ll need to get started.

And now for the build:

This price excludes the cost of Windows 10, which you can purchase from Amazon (or your favourite CD key marketplace — use Google). The fluctuations in pricing for GPUs will also affect this build with the GTX 1060 costing more than a third of the total. You may be able to bag a deal on a second-hand unit.

The GTX 1060, matched with a Ryzen 3 1200 CPU, will be able to handle most games without issue, though you may need to turn down a few settings, especially with only 8 GB of RAM available.
