Budget gaming PC

Build Description

I can enjoy 1440p gaming with Ray Tracing and DLSS from this 12GB Asus Geforce RTX 3060.

Motherboard supports 11th gen Intel but I put this 10th gen Intel Core i3 in to keep the cost of the system down. It will do the job. I am mostly paying for the graphics card anyway. This setup will me to upgrade the CPU in the future if I choose.

Favorite Feature

It has a spare M.2 slot and 2 spare RAM slots for future upgrades.
