Budget Gaming PC (RGB/no RGB versions)

The Intel Core i5-9400F, a "gamer's special" that maximizes CPU power while dropping the built-in GPU. This is just fine for purposes of this system. It packs in 6 cores that can Turbo to over 4GHz! which is perfect for driving the AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB GPU to its limits. This is a truly perfect combo for 1080p gaming. In terms of storage, the Budget Gamer sports a 500GB solid-state drive, truly setting it apart from every other "budget gaming PC" on the 'Net. It ensures that this PC isn't just fast when gaming, but fast in everything else too! Also on board is 8GB of RAM, the minimum we recommend for any modern PC.

(optional)
Monitor: If you do not want a rgb monitor you can switch it out for a 144hz Acer XFA240. This will do the trick without the rgb.
Keyboard: like above no rgb but does the trick. Microsoft wired keyboard 600
Case: Thermaltake Versa H18 if you do not like the flashy lights.
Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda 2TB for the most cost effective bulk storage. TIP! Do not use it for your OS installation this should be on your ssd. A hard drive should only be used as a secondary storage.

RGB Lighting? Yes
