Welcome to Zach’s Friday Feature! As a PC building YouTuber and PC flipper, I have built and sold literally hundreds of gaming PCs and now I want to help Jawa users out by highlighting an awesome PC build every week and talk about it.
One of our “Top 5 Jawa Sellers” BubbleTeaBuilds is back at it again, and this time his Divine Gaming PC is gracing us with its presence. This exactly $1000 build (with free shipping) makes our comparisons super easy at one of the most common price points available, and the Divine crushes the competition in both aesthetics and performance.
- Color Scheme Options – The way this PC is put together allows the buyer to rock almost any color scheme that they want to. The white and black aesthetic of every component, paired with the white cable extensions, allow you to flip through the RGB options like the photos do until you’re happy. (Thanks BubbleTea for showing us the individual colors instead of rainbow puke) I personally like the light blue and purple options the most!
- RX 6600XT – Commonly slept on, the 6600XT is easily one of the best price to performance graphics cards available on the market right now. Beating out the RTX 3060 for less money, it’s a stud for 1080p gaming and can certainly push most titles to 1440p as well depending on your settings.
- AM4 Upgradeability – This ROG Strix B450-F Gaming motherboard is certainly no slouch and it’s a much appreciated component in the build. Not only does it support some pretty solid overclocking, but with the versatility of the B450 platform you can upgrade the Ryzen 5 3600 to AMD’s latest 5000 series CPUs with a BIOS update. If you just want some higher FPS numbers then the 5600X would be fine, but you could also upgrade to more cores and threads with an option like the 5800X as well.
Price to Performance Value:
Although we aren’t seeing the Ryzen 5 3600 in newer prebuilt builds anymore because it’s a generation old, it’s still a great pairing with the 6600XT. Most $1000 builds from the competition like this one from CyperPowerPC will feature a better CPU like the Intel i5 12600KF, but the RTX 3050 it also has will result in far lower FPS numbers compared to the Divine.
As previously mentioned the Ryzen 5 3600 may want to be an upgrade for people looking for faster CPU power. It’s definitely not bottlenecking the 6600XT so you’ll still get plenty of performance, but if you want to scratch the “upgrade itch” and take advantage of the B450 platform, you can upgrade to a 5600X, 5700X, or 5800X. I personally wouldn’t however, and I’d rather spend money on upgrading to a bigger and better NVMe SSD (keep the Patriot P310 in there for a 2nd drive), and I would probably upgrade to 32GB of RAM in the future for video editing/streaming.
After 99 sold items so far, BubbleTeaBuilds should certainly reach the 100 milestone with this build here. The 100% positive rating speaks for itself, and the price to performance and aesthetics of this PC build do the same thing. If you need a PC for $1000, get this one.
