2000$ Gaming PC Build Guide
For the processor, we have selected the Intel i7 12700KF. Intel i7 12700KF is a 12(8P+4E) with 20 threads. Moreover, it comes with a Performance-core Base Frequency of 3.60GHz and an Efficient-core Base Frequency of 2.70GHz.

We also added the Corsair iCUE H100i RGB Pro XT for the processor as this processor doesn’t ship with the CPU cooler. Corsair iCUE H100i RGB Pro XT uses a 240mm radiator while airflow is provided by 2400 RPM PWM fans rated at 75CFM. Besides, Corsair H100i Pro XT is one of the best AIO liquid coolers you can buy.
For the motherboard, we have gone with MSI MPG Z690 EDGE WIFI DDR4. Z690 EDGE WiFi DDR4 supports Intel 12th generations CPUs and comes with 4 DIMM slots that can support up to 128GB of RAM. As per connectivity, this motherboard comes with 2.5G LAN, 4 M.2 slots, and WiFi 6. Moreover, this motherboard has features like Mystic lights to control RGB peripherals. All in All, this is an excellent motherboard for around $300.
For the RAM, we opted for Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3200Mhz RAM.
For the Graphics card, we went ahead with MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio. MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio comes in three fan design for efficient cooling. It also comes with RGB Mystic Light and a backplate design
For Storage, we opted for Silicon Power 1TB NVMe SSD. Silicon Power offers a super-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface and offers read/write speeds of up to 3,400/3,000MBs.
For the power supply, we have gone with Seasonic Focus GX-750. Seasonic Focus GX-750 is an 80+ Gold plus gold certified 750 watts power supply. GX-750 is a fully modular PSU for a clean PC build. It comes with Hybrid Silent Fan control for silent operation. Seasonic Focus GX 750 is available around 129$ and, for that price, it offers good performance both in terms of efficiency and voltage regulation.
For the computer case, We opted for Cooler Master Mastercase H500 ARGB. H500 ARGB comes with two front panels, one transparent and the other one is mesh. The latter should be used for better cooling. It comes with two 200mm ARGB fans at the front. On the other hand, it comes with radiator support in the top, front, and rear. At 119$, H500 is an excellent airflow case with good thermal performance.
