800$ Gaming PC Build Guide
For the processor, we have gone with Intel Core i5 11400. Intel Core i5 11400 is a Hexa-core CPU with 12 threads. It comes with a base clock of 2.60GHz and Max. Turbo of 4.40GHz. Moreover, Intel Core i5 11400 has a TDP of 65W and 12MB Intel Smart Cache. In terms of performance, it performs better than anything AMD has to offer in this price range.
For the motherboard, we have selected Asus TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS WiFi. Asus TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS WiFi supports intel 11th generation CPUs out of the box. It comes with 4 DIMM slots that can accommodate 128GB of RAM. As per the features it comes with WiFi6 and 2.5G ethernet. In addition, Asus TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS WiFi comes with Aura Sync RGB Lighting with addressable Gen2 RGB header to sync and control RGB peripherals.
For the RAM, we have selected 16GB TeamGroup T-Force Delta 3200Mhz RAM. This RAM comes with an aluminum alloy heat spreader with an asymmetric minimalist design. Further, T-Force Delta is Aura Sync compatible and comes with a lifetime warranty.
Now on to the most important component of the gaming build, the graphics card. We opted for the MSI Radeon RX 5600XT MECH OCBV 6GB. The card is a very capable mid-ranger that can breeze through all AAA games at max settings in 1080p resolution at 60fps.
For the SSD, we have gone for a 1TB Crucial MX500 which should be more than enough to store the OS and more intensive applications.
For the power supply, we have gone with Corsair CX550. This power supply is an 80 Plus Bronze certified and offers 85% efficiency. Furthermore, this Power Supply has Active PFC with a full range of AC input. Besides, it has an intelligent fan design that offers little to no detectable noise during regular operation.
For the computer case, we have gone with Phanteks Eclipse P400A DRGB white. Besides, Phanteks Eclipse P400A being a high airflow case, the front panel is entirely made from ultra-fine steel mesh and comes with three 120mm RGB fans that can be controlled by Asus Aura Sync.
This concludes our build for gaming PC under $800.
