The Budget Box

by Morris H Posted on: 5/31/2022

Build Description

As can be guessed from the name, this is a very budget gaming PC I built for myself, primarily for light gaming and schoolwork. No one is gonna call this a high end build, sure, but honestly it can run most things perfectly fine, so long as you're not going crazy on the settings. Most of the parts were bought a Micro Center since they tend to have good deals on CPU and motherboard bundles, and other various sales. Might get a better CPU cooler sometime, since the stock Intel cooler I'm using right now isn't exactly the best, to no one's surprise.

Favorite Feature

Most happy about the GPU honestly. I previously played games on integrated graphics with an old laptop, so an RX 6600 is a huge upgrade and really made the experience better.
