As a rule, it is always cheaper to build a gaming PC yourself and to order the individual parts from various shops. Especially if you want maximum flexibility in the selection of components, you can hardly avoid building your own PC. However, it can also be worth simply calculating the PC configurations. PCGH has created gaming PC configurations in price ranges from 850 euros to 4,000 euros, which can be ordered via Dubaro’s PC configurator, but can also be further modified. Every gaming PC is a one-off production and not a classic complete PC. Building your own always involves the risk of having to embark on tedious troubleshooting in the event of problems. You’ll also find that Dubaro has really unrivaled low prices, and the surcharge over miser configurations isn’t even that much greater when you factor in each shop’s shipping costs.
Buy a gaming PC for 850 euros to 1,500 euros
The PCGH team worked intensively and designed four gaming computers in the price range from 850 euros to 1,500 euros. The base $850 gaming PC now features a Geforce RTX 3060, replacing the much slower RTX 3050. A new addition is the €1,000 gaming PC, equipped with a Ryzen 5 5600 and an RTX 3060 Ti. For those who want to spend €200 more, the €1,200 PC offers a faster Intel Core i5-13400F processor (from the current Intel -Generation!) and a better CPU cooler.
Interested parties can choose between an AMD and an Intel edition for a budget of 1,500 euros. Both PCs are equipped with an RTX 3070. The choice between the PC with Ryzen 7 5800X and the PC with Core i5-13400F has little impact on performance according to our benchmarks.
Buy a gaming PC for 1,700 euros to 2,500 euros
For an additional €200 compared to the €1,500 gaming PC, you get a Geforce RTX 3070 Ti instead of an RTX 3070 in the €1,700 edition, while the processor performance remains the same. However, if you prefer a gaming PC worth 2,000 euros, you get the powerful Intel Core i5-13600KF with 14 cores for the higher price. According to the PCGH performance index, it achieves 83 percent, whereas the Ryzen 7 5800X only achieves 65 percent.
With a budget of 2,300 euros, a significant increase in graphics performance is possible, since the next-gen graphics card Geforce RTX 4070 Ti is offered here instead of the RTX 3070 Ti from the 2,000 euro version. A gaming PC for 2,500 euros even enables an Intel Core i5-13700KF with 16 cores, which achieves an impressive 90 percent in the PCGH CPU performance index. In this case, the Radeon RX 7900 XT is used as the graphics card.
Buy a gaming PC for 2,700 to 4,000 euros
The €2,700 gaming PC stands out among the 13 systems we proposed because it is equipped with an AMD processor. We chose the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D. For the graphics card, we rely on the Geforce RTX 4070 Ti, which Nvidia originally planned as the RTX 4080. However, you can achieve a significant improvement in graphics performance with the gaming PC for 3,000 euros, which is currently even available for 2,900 euros, since the Geforce RTX 4080 is used here.
If you want the Geforce RTX 4090 (Nvidia’s top model), you should budget at least 3,500 euros. The 4,000 euro variant is also equipped with an RTX 4090. The difference between the two PCs is the processor: The Core i9-13900KF is used in the 4,000 euro system instead of the i7-13700KF. A note: Always choose the cheaper KF version, because an integrated graphics unit is only an advantage if the main graphics card fails and you still want to display an image on the PC.
