The PC is equipped with a 12th generation Intel Core i7 12700F processor that will handle almost any task you throw at it. For your gaming needs, the Acer Orion 5000 is equipped with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, a flagship graphics card that offers you gaming quality at the highest level.

Next is this only slightly more modest offering from Skytech. That Skytech Chronos will throw you back $1599.99 (£1484.70), a savings of $200. For your money you get an Intel Core i5 12600K at 3.7GHz, a sweet spot for modern gaming. Their graphics run on an Nvidia RTX 3070, which may not be the best card of its generation, but is more than capable of running all modern games at high-fidelity levels.

For storage you get a 1TB NVME SSD, this is the gold standard of PC storage these days and reduces your game load times to a fraction of what they would be on a standard hard drive. 16GB of DDR4 RAM is more than enough for gaming. While this PC isn’t the absolute highest spec, it’s more than enough for any modern game and will keep you playing for years to come.

We come here in the middle of the pack. For nearly half the price of our most expensive offering, what you get is still impressive. We singled them out Zotac Gaming Mek Hero G1 in this price range and for good reason. at $1,014 (£1,024.62)almost $600 off, you’re getting a real bang for your buck.

Starting with the 11th Gen Intel Core i7 11700KF @ 3.6GHz paired with an RTX 3060 Ti, you get plenty of the latest gaming power for a lot less money than you would pay for it separately. You get plenty of RAM with 16GB of DDR4 running at a respectable 3200MHz. Better still, the PC features a terabyte of storage in an ultra-fast M.2 NVME solid-state drive.

A little over £1000 is still a lot of money, but for what you get in this package, especially compared to the prices of the individual parts, you’re getting a lot with this Zotac gaming PC.

We’re entering bargain territory here, and we’re still getting a high level of gaming performance, but at much cheaper prices. This Thermaltake LCGS Glacier i3510 sold for $849.99 (£788.74), a reduction of $350. The package includes an Intel Core i5 10400F processor, which is enough for gaming. You still get a 30-series graphics card since this machine comes with an RTX 3050. 16GB of RAM as you would expect from a gaming machine and a 1TB M.2 drive for storage.

When it comes to PC gaming on a budget, this is more or less a perfect place to start. This PC has modern, powerful components that can easily cope with any current game that you throw at them. For lighter gaming, this PC could serve you for years to come, and it would also be a great starting point to upgrade as needed.

The unfortunate reality of PC gaming is that it never comes cheap. Considering a PC “cheap” when it still costs more than a PS5 or Xbox Series X feels wrong, but that’s the nature of the beast. With that in mind, we have a fairly cheap but still very valid option to check out. This iBUYPOWER Pro doesn’t exactly have all the bells and whistles, but it certainly has the things it feels it needs.

This barebones slot machine will set you back $649.99 (£603.15), with a savings of $200 thanks to the Prime Early Access offer. Its CPU is nothing special, a simple but effective Core i3 10105F clocked at a rather impressive 3.7 GHz. Adding to that is a Radeon RX6500 XT, which would be a contemporary of an RTX 3050, albeit not quite on the same level.

Continuing the trend of keeping costs down, the PC features 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 480GB of storage on a solid state drive. We cannot recommend this PC to anyone looking for top-notch graphics and performance. However, we can recommend this PC for a few uses.

First off, many of the most popular online PC games really don’t require as much processing power as e.g League of Legends, Brave or CS:GO. Even MMOs like it World of Warcraft don’t need super powerful PCs, and for those games this PC would work just fine. If that’s your goal, this PC will get you there. It’s also an excellent starting point to build a much more powerful slot machine.
