As tempting as it might be to grab a cheap pre-built PC these days, just know that some of them make a few trade-offs with the parts. For instance, sure it might have a great graphics card in it, but it might have a last-gen processor and motherboard, or it might have a subpar power supply or memory. So always be mindful of what you’re actually getting in these and see if it’s actually a real deal or not. If you go with the DIY gamer PC build, at least you’ll always know what’s exactly in it.
Anyways, with graphics cards still being a bit scarce at retail, you can at least build yourself a decent GPU-free gaming PC that will run quite a few games at 1080p/60fps using AMD’s 5600G/5700G. You can build these for around $600 or so depending on current deals and offers and at least these will feature current-generation parts that you can supercharge later with the addition of a graphics card whenever prices come down or if you can find one.
Below is one of the better deals I could find this week on several parts that when combined will form the basis of a pretty good gaming PC. As is without the GPU, you’re looking at around $600 here and will still be able to play a good amount of games at a decent resolution and framerate.

- GIGABYTE B550M DS3H – $109.99
