✅ TOP 5: Best Gaming PC Build Under $400 2020

January 14, 2020


Are you looking for the best gaming PC build
under $400? In this video, we will breakdown all the components
that go into this amazing build. Before we get started with our video detailing
the best gaming PC build under $400, we have included links in the description for each
product mentioned, so make sure you check those out. Starting off with the CPU we have the AMD
Ryzen 5 2400G Processor. AMD shocked the world with their most recent
series of CPUs (Ryzen 3rd Gen) and have seemingly knocked Intel off the top spot for the first
time in, well, as long as I can remember. One of their standout performers in this new
series is the 2400G, an APU which comes equipped with impressive VEGA 8 integrated graphics. The 2400G is a 4core/ 8thread CPU with clock
speeds of 3.6GHz base and 3.9GHz when under AMD’s precision boost. The 2400G provides enough power to play low-intensive
games such as CS: GO, Fortnite, DOTA 2, and Rocket League at 1080p while maintaining smooth,
playable FPS. It comes with its own CPU cooler which works
great right out of the box and provided cool temps for the most part. Overall, the best APU currently available
and one that actually offers good gaming performance as well. Next for RAM we have the XPG Z1 DDR4 3000MHz
16GB RAM. XPG is a trusted and reliable brand that bring
some of the most affordable hardware offerings to our shelves. For that reason, we’ve gone for 16GB of
their DDR4 Z1 3000MHz RAM kit in our $400 build. We contemplated putting 8GB in this build,
but for the price difference, we thought it was worthwhile opting for double. With this RAM, you’ll be able to push pretty
much any game you want without trouble. That being said, your CPU will feel the effects
long before your RAM does, so you are still limited to what the 3400G can do. On the plus side, the RAM is quick enough
(3000MHz) to extract excellent performance out of the CPU and is much better suited over
slower, 2666MHz, and below, RAM. Up next we have the SSD which goes to the
Kingston 480GB A400 2.5” SSD. You’ll be glad to hear that this build makes
use of a super-fast SSD storage solution. If you aren’t familiar with SSDs and how
they work, in basic terms, the technology inside an SSD differs dramatically from that
of traditional HDDs. This means they can read/write data much,
much faster. We’ve gone for Kingston’s 480GB SSD in
this build as we think that’s enough to get you up and running. You might need to expand your storage capacity
down the road to keep up with demand, but for a start, this is a great SSD to go with. Up next the PSU choice is the CORSAIR VS Series
450 Watt. When buying a budget PSU, we always recommend
buying from reputable, reliable manufacturers. If you don’t, you run a serious risk of
hardware malfunction down the line. For that reason, we’ve gone for a Corsair
450W Bronze rated PSU. It isn’t going to win any awards for most
outstanding PSU, but it certainly does the job and will provide efficiency and safety
while you use it. Now for the MOBO which goes to the MSI Performance
Gaming AMD X470. There’s no point in skimping on a motherboard
at this stage, and that’s why we’ve opted for the MSI X470 Gaming plus motherboard. It not only offers a bunch of features that
are geared towards gamers but also comes compatible with Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs via a BIOS update. That being said, it’s still effectively
an entry-level board but slots nicely into this $400 build. MSI has equipped the Gaming plus with better
VRM’s which is great for people wanting to overclock their chip. Just be careful if you do decide to OC this
chip though, the motherboard does not come with a VRM heatsink so temps will run a fair
bit higher. Ultimately, if you’re looking for a budget
board that’s going to achieve everything you’d want from a gaming motherboard, then
look no further. And for the final piece of the puzzle we have
the case which goes to the AeroCool Cylon RGB Mid Tower PC Case. Of all the budget cases we’ve recommended
here on WePC, this is definitely the most aesthetically pleasing. It also has great out-of-the-box cooling,
a clean design, great airflow, and plenty of room for a long GPU or a few extra hard
drives down the line. The Aerocool Cylon RGB currently showcases
superb value for money and is the perfect option for this $400 gaming build. Even though the case does come with a single
120mm internal fan, I would recommend purchasing a couple of extras to help maximize the airflow
potential. So that sums up the best gaming PC build under
$400. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video
