Introduction



Building a new Gaming PC is probably one of the most exciting aspects of PC Gaming for enthusiasts as well as one of the most daunting at the same time. With a veritable plethora of options in almost every category users can spend literal days looking at reviews, specifications, compatibilities, and aesthetics before settling on a final build.  For some of us, that is heaven. For others, it is hell. Either way, it always seems like time is short (or we just lose track of it in the process).



So, today at The FPS Review, we are putting together an AMD based Budget Gaming system as an idea of what is out there and what would make for a truly enjoyable gaming experience with time for you, the reader, to spare. So, welcome to our “Live” AMD Budget Gaming PC Build Guide for a next-gen gaming PC build. This guide will be “Live” in that we will update it quarterly.

Id almost say, go 3200 mhz for both builds. save some more as opposed to the 3600mhz stuff. I don't think we would notice much difference.

The only '3200 mhz' kit I'd go for is 3200 CL14, as good memory is the life and death of a Zen 2 CPU
(bears reposting because it's such a nice video)
And the 3300x is indeed, out by now.

There were a whopping 0 listed for sale the week the article was written and the morning of publish there were still a whopping 0 listed for sale. Not much you can do about a processor that can't be bought when articles go to bed.

An extra $20 here, and extra $20 there, an extra $30 over there and all of the sudden your $500-600 system is now a $700-800 system ;)
