best gaming pc build for 1000

What? You want to go full out beast mode in your gaming sessions? Well then, your going to require some hardcore hardware and guess what? I’ve got the perfect gaming PC build for you! 😉

This $1,000 gaming PC build is the best of the best for the budget range. You’ll most definitely experience the ultimate gaming experience and you’ll never regret the day you decide to build this beast.

With this build you get the very top-tier of the mid-budget builds allowing for amazing performance and speed. When this beast is up and breathing, it’ll allow you to play your games on MAX settings with unbelievable FPS at 1080p.

In Order To Get A Beast PC like this, You Have To Build It Yourself

If you want to get the ultimate gaming experience and be able to go beast mode on any game, then you’ll need to build a beast PC yourself.

With a $1000 budget you can be tempted to fall into buying a pre-built computer but I highly recommend you to give custom PC building a try. You can get so much PC performance and power with this kind of budget. Most pre-built computers are all looks and pretty much overpriced with so many additional prices added at this price point.

So in order to get the best bang for your buck, you got to build it yourself.

Now don’t let the idea of building a computer scare you because it’s really not all that scary or difficult. It’s actually quite easy to do. If you have messed around with Legos or put together a furniture like a desk or office chair before, then you’ll be able to build yourself a computer.

The reason behind it is because building a computer is actually just putting different computer parts/components where they belong inside the case. It’s truly as simple as that. Place the parts and cables where they belong and that’s about it when it comes to building a computer.

Additionally, I’m here to help so you can ask for help in the comments section way below. And I also made a guide to help you build your PC together. You can check that out to see how simple building your computer really is.

At this budget range, you’re really getting the best performance from all of the components and you don’t have to sacrifice anything for another. This build features an 7th gen Intel Core i5-7600K processor, EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB graphics card, 8GB of RAM, 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD, and more.

Seriously, this is one amazing build at the right price tag. I honestly love this budget because it’s just so perfect for building the best gaming PC. You get everything you need – Performance, Power, and Quality.

Oh and I said earlier that this build is perfect for gaming at 1080p. Well it’s great for 1440p too! But I know most of you guys will be playing at 1080p which is still an amazing resolution to play at.

With this build, you really don’t have to worry about upgrading for quite some time so you can rest assured and game in peace. Only part you might upgrade in near time is actually expanding your RAM to make 16GB total if you want. You don’t have to but you could.

Brief Details Of The Beast


The DeepCool TESSERACT SW Mid Tower offers a whole lot for the price. This case looks great and has plenty of room for all your components. Installing should be quite easy with this computer case. The price is cheap, quality is good, has good case features for beginners.

Processor (CPU):

Inside this build you get the powerful Intel Core i5-7600K which is the new 7th gen processor from Intel. You get quad-cores which should be more than enough for your gaming needs and the max clock speed of 4.2 Ghz is amazing (plus there is over-clocking potential since the processor is unlocked).

You won’t regret going with the i5-7600K. There are nothing but great reviews for it.


The Intel Core i5-7600K doesn’t come with a stock cooler since it’s an unlocked processor so the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is a good entry-level cooler. It’s cheap and has good performance when it comes to cooling the CPU.

Motherboard (MOBO):

The MSI Pro Series Intel Z270 motherboard is perfect for this build. It’s compatible with every components so you don’t have to worry about any issues. This new gen motherboard will work great with the 7th gen processor. MSI Z270-A PRO has good features and will be more than enough for most people.

The design for this motherboard is also very nice and looks clean. The best part about this board is that it’s quite cheap so I was able to put the extra money into other components. 🙂

Graphics Card (GPU):

The best part about this build is the graphics card and the performance you get out of it. EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC 8GB Black edition is one the top-tier graphic cards out in the market. This is one powerful card, and you’ll fall in love with this card. I know I’m in love and I don’t even have it. But I wish I did.

This card is better than the GTX 980 TI and the price is good right now to buy.

You’ll handle games flawlessly at 1080p and some at 1440p. I consider this a trouble free card meaning that you just run a game and enjoy the game with no problem.

Memory (RAM):

8GB of RAM is plenty to run your games. 16GB would be pretty much overkill but if you need more you can go for that. The RAM is a 1 x 8GB so you get one stick for 8GB. You can always buy another for 16GB total for this build. Having 2 sticks is great because you get slightly better performance and it fits two slots (for looks of course).

But note that the motherboard in this build has only 2 slots for ram.

Power Supply (PSU):

The EVGA 600 B1, 80+ is cheap and provides enough power for all components. But if you want something better or with more wattage, you could look into the EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2. The quality of EVGA power supply are better but that comes with a bigger price tag.

Storage (SSD + HDD):

This build has 120GB of SSD plus 1TB of HDD. That’s good enough space for your gaming needs. Now SSD is really a must have for any computer builds if you can afford it because the speed is just ridiculously good compared to a hard drive. Once you go SSD, you’ll never go back.

Now, the 120GB SSD is where you’ll install windows for boot speed. And the 1TB HDD is where you’ll store all your games and programs. This is the best route. Try not to waste the SSD storage with useless programs or files.

Optical Drives (ODD):

Optical drives are nothing special. You can opt to get the cheapest one but remember to check compatibility. Most of them cost between $15-20.

Operating System & Peripherals

My recommendation for an operating systems is always Windows because this is what everyone is used too. You can pick from any Windows OS that you’re most comfortable with. But if you can’t decide, then go with Windows 7 64bit or Windows 8.1 64bit. And upgrade later down the road to Window 10.

(Note: I personally don’t recommend any pirated or bootlegged version of Windows. The risk is not really worth it.)

The peripherals are completely up for you to decide. You can go with any that fits your budget. But the peripherals I have listed with the build is great match for this build. You won’t go wrong with any one of those. They all will give you great performance for the buck and more.

Internet Connection (Wired or Wireless):

If you want the best performance in games without losing connection, then go wired with Ethernet cable. This way you don’t have to spend more money on wireless adapters. Note: speed of your internet provider is also a factor of your internet speed so keep in mind.

Going the wireless route of PCI-E adapter or USB adapter, you can check out options for a better router for better connectivity.

My Overall Thoughts

If you want to be 100% satisfied of your investment into a beast gaming PC build, then this build is right for you. This will dominate anything you throw at it and also it gives you good future proof for quite some time.

And a little warning, when you have this build running, you’ll want to hold your jaw tight because they might drop. 😛

  1. What type of feedback have you received from this build? I am on the fence between this build and the $1500 build. I still need to purchase the peripherals and monitor, keyboard, etc. So, I am thinking this is a good decision. Any feedback would help. Cheers.

    1. Hey David,

      You’re right. The $1000 build would be the best decision if you have to buy other peripherals (since peripherals can cost a lot too). Don’t worry the $1000 build is still a top-notch build and you’ll be more than happy when you’re gaming.

      Hope that helps. Cheers

        1. Hey David,

          I personally love the Samsung SSDs. They have great performance and quality. I’ve been using one since 2013 and it’s still working like a boss. The one I would recommend is the Samsung 850 EVO 250GB or if you can get your hands on a Samsung 750 EVO (older version) it should be cheaper than the 850 model.

          P.S. The price might be high on the Samsung SSDs but they’re truly worth it. If the price is too high then you can try the Kingston or the Crucial brand.
