budget Gaming System
Our budget gaming system utilises the power of AMD's new integrated Vega 8 graphics solution, giving you the ability to get into PC gaming without having to buy an expensive graphics card.
Vega 8 is an entry level graphics processor that comes integrated with your Ryzen CPU. Unlike most integrated graphics solutions on the market, Vega 8 has the ability to power 3D games at playable standards. It even has the ability to run current generation titles using a combination of lower resolution and graphical settings.
The best part; you can add a dedicated graphics card at any point in the future, turning what was originally an entry level gaming machine into a gaming beast. As it's very likely a dedicated dedicated graphics card will be added to the system at some point in the future, we have paired the system with a high quality 550watt power supply from Corsair, providing plenty of extra power for that eventual graphics card addition.

AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Quad-Core 3.5Ghz APU with Vega 8 Graphics - AMD's new Vega 8 graphics solution is predominately aimed at light, casual gaming. That said, it is quite possible to play current generation games on Vega 8 using a combination of lower resolutions and graphical settings. We have provided a benchmark video below showcasing current titles running on Vega 8 in a system very similar to this. This should provide a close representation of the performance you can expect on our budget AMD system.
Corsair 8GB Vengeance LPX 2666Mhz RAM - System memory is crucial for Vega 8 performance. Unfortunately, memory prices are still ridiculously overpriced, with both high speed, high capacity RAM just too expensive to fit within the limits of a budget build such as this. We've hit a good middle ground selecting a 2x4GB dual channel 2666Mhz RAM kit from corsair.
MSI A320M Gaming Pro Motherboard - For AMD's AM4 platform we use A320M motherboards from MSI, Gigabyte and ASUS that come in a variety of gaming oriented colours schemes such as Black, White/Black, and Red/Black.
Where possible, we order components to match your motherboards colour scheme and configure RGB lighting to suite the overall system aesthetic.
Samsung 860 EVO 256GB M.2 SSD - We recommend a solid state drive as your primary drive where the Windows operating system, programs, and games reside, as this delivers superb performance and load times. However the capacity is relatively low, so you can choose a higher capacity solid state drive or simply add a separate internal standard hard disk drive for your data.
Deepcool Tesseract Mid Tower Case - An excellent, budget gaming case that comes equipped with two LED fans, side window, and dust filters. Top case inputs include 2xUSB 3.0 ports, microphone/headphone jack, and power/reset buttons.
Case comes in either black or white, with either red or blue trim and LED fans.

Once assembled, we put the system through a series of benchmarks and tests to check stability, noise, and temperature, making sure they meet all our expectations. We also configure Microsoft Windows with regard to a host of settings which improve the user experience, performance and privacy.
