Custom PC issue 204 cover

In Issue #204 of Custom PC, we show you that having a tight budget doesn’t have to mean being stuck with tortoise-like gaming performance. You do need to make some careful component choices and prioritise the right areas, though, and that’s where this month’s cover feature comes in. We show you how to build an awesome 1080p gaming rig for just £699.

Our bargain box has all you need to run the latest games at decent frame rates, including a 3rd-gen AMD Ryzen CPU, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 500GB PCI-E SSD and, most importantly, a potent Radeon RX 5600 XT GPU. We take you through all the bits and pieces you’ll need, as well as how to build it with step-by-step instructions.
