This Orange and Blue Could Be For You!

Update: this build sold! But check out all of this seller’s builds here

Gaming Workstations is at it again with another super valuable (and beautiful) budget build. Today’s feature would be a great first PC for someone just jumping into PC gaming, and since I’m writing this during the Steelers halftime, let’s not waste any more time…

Favorite Features:

  • Budget Value for a First Build – Like stated in the intro, this would be such a great option for someone’s first gaming PC. The value you’re getting with a 5600G and 1660 Super is great for the $700 price range, but the aesthetics, cooling, and the rest of the part selection are dialed in as well! This build would pair perfectly with a 1080p 144Hz monitor which most gamers are currently using right now.
  • Custom Color Scheme – Black, orange, and light blue isn’t a color scheme that you see too often, but I absolutely love it here. Not only is the seller perfectly matching the light blue RGB colors with the CPU cooler and case fans, but I absolutely love the Funtin cable extensions matched with the custom paint job of the EVGA graphics card. Looks amazing!
  • Upgrade Potential – Per usual with AM4 builds, there’s a ton of upgrade potential on this build if you’re willing to stay on AM4 and not upgrade to the brand new AM5. The 5600G could be upgraded to a Ryzen 7/Ryzen 9, there’s room for more SSD space, and that 1660 Super could be upgraded as well. (But I wouldn’t do that, because the custom paint job is awesome here)

Price to Performance Value:

As far as prebuilt companies go, most of them aren’t offering builds for this cheap of a price so you’ll have to buy a used build or a commission build. Compared to the rest of the platform and other places online, this is a very tough build to beat in terms of price to performance and especially the aesthetics. The value on this one drops a little bit if you aren’t in love with the orange/blue color combination, but if that’s up your alley then I would pull the trigger.

First Upgrades:

There’s a lot of options that you could do here, but honestly I really like where it’s currently sitting. For a $700 build this is what I would consider perfectly balanced with the CPU, RAM, storage, and GPU, so it really depends on what the buyer’s goals/needs are. Personally, that 512GB SSD would probably get upgraded first to 1 or 2TB, but you could also upgrade the RAM to 32GB, jump up to a Ryzen 7 5700X, or maybe even upgrade the GPU to a current generation model. (You’ll lose the beautiful paint job in the process of that one though)

Conclusion:

Gaming Workstations continues to dominate the platform and this build should sell quickly per usual. With 75 completed sold listings and a 100% approval rating, you can count on this seller to deliver value and I truly hope this one goes to a deserving home. Be sure to showcase it on the desk as well because it’s stunning!
