Since we had one budget Gaming PC build for 500$, and two great Gaming PC builds for great performance, one around 2000$ for the best gaming experience, and the other for 1000$, it’s time to create some “in-between” Gaming rig with perfect balance between the components, which would provide decent performance for most of the games.
This configuration will be around 700$, and would support, as we said, most of the games. It will be especially great for CS:GO, Overwatch, Dota2, WoW, LoL, The Witcher III and many more RPG, MMO and FPS games.
Lets take a look under the hood.

As we said, this configuration has great balance between its components to provide optimal performance. For 700$, this would be the most balanced configuration that you could get, which would provide great performance for CPU-heavy and GPU-heavy games for this price.
The CPU has great potential, and would be more than sufficient on this build, and the GTX 1060 is a new graphics card, which provides great performance for 1080p gaming. However, if you aspire to play GPU-heavy games with ultra settings at higher resolution than 1080p (1440p etc), you might want to upgrade it to GTX 1070, which will max-out any game at any resolution except 4k.
As you can see, we included top-notch gaming gear. So if you don’t already have 144Hz monitor, or decent mouse for gaming, we already included our suggestions.
- The ASUS VG248QE monitor is great 144Hz monitor, and the best one that you could get for that price-tag. It is especially good for FPS games and CS:GO.
- Razer Deathadder Chroma mouse is perfect one to have for CS:GO with a lot of improvements over the old Deathadder. You can check our REVIEW .
- HyperX Cloud Revolver are the new addition to the HyperX Cloud family, and they are totally worth the price. They have wide-sound-stage which is very important, especially for FPS games. Check REVIEW
- Corsair K70 RGB keyboard is a complete bad-ass. Top-notch design and durability, great RGB lighting and variety of options for customization. Check it HERE
