Lowest Cost to Performance Ratio
AMD CPU and GPU
AMD processors have been one of the go to's for price vs. performance for a while now.
Furthermore, with their high number of cores and threads, I find they are better suited for multitasking, such as gaming and streaming at the same time vs. their competitor Intel.
Hence, if you are on a tight budget, AMD should be the processor you choose.
We picked other budget-friendly parts that offer reliable performance while saving you money. We double-checked the compatibility with the motherboard, the CPU, and the Memory.
As a result, you will get a fully reliable working build if you get these parts.
The Hard drive is interchangeable, so if you don't want that amount of storage, you can opt-out for a cheaper one with less room. We picked this solid-state hard drive for people who are looking to upgrade into something better.
Similarly, you might already have a hard drive from a pre-existing build that you can swap in with no issues. Therefore, for the price of this hard drive, it was just too hard not to put it up as it is under 100$ for 1 TB storage on a solid-state. That's a good deal.
Furthermore, another performance part that we needed to spend a bit more on was the video card. Trying to find a budget video card that offers excellent performance at 1080p was pretty tough.
We ended getting the RX 590 Video Card, and it has a price point of around $200.
You likely won't be able to play the newest games on Ultra/High settings. But, you will have an enjoyable gaming experience if you opt for Medium settings instead.
Finally, the rest of the gear we need is a power supply and a computer case.
We can save money by getting a cheaper case (that still looks good) and a power supply that has a good 80+ Bronze efficiency rating that will perform reliably for the budget at hand.
