Last week PC Perspective’s Ryan Shrout started a journey to discover what a budget gaming PC is capable of, using a $98 Radeon RX 460 as the focal point. A total of $549 and a few days of gaming later, Ryan has not only posted positive impressions, but he’s also posting a giveaway of the very system he built!
“My time with this little experiment has been eye opening. From an everyday consumer perspective, a budget of $600 is spot on, and a build with a card I previously had no experience with has left me impressed.” ~Ryan Shrout, PC Perspective
It’s worth reiterating that his choice of components includes a 240GB Sandisk SSD, which I think is crucial for overall operating system speed and dramatically improved loading times for your favorite apps and games.
When you consider that addition of a roomy SSD in a cool, quiet system that can handle everything from Rocket League to DOOM at 1080p/60, it’s an awesome value for that $549.
If you haven’t given the RX 460 a fair shake, we honestly hope this changes your mind. It’s a capable little card, and XFX even has a sleek new single-slot RX 460 we’ll be checking out in the near future.
In the meantime, we wish our community good luck in PC Perspective’s giveaway. And as always, happy building and happy gaming!
