Getting the best prebuilt gaming PC is a perfectly valid option for those who do not know how to build their own PC, or do not care to do so. However, there are plenty of options in all price ranges, which might make it difficult to find the best option for a certain money range. So, if you are in the market for a new prebuilt gaming PC, here are your best options.
Overall best prebuilt gaming PCs
Asus ROG Strix GL12
Our first solution is Asus ROG Strix GL12, which features pretty much everything that you could ever want from a strong, modern gaming PC. It has Integrated RGB lighting, a PSU shroud which covers the power supply, as well as tempered glass panel on the side.
It comes with an Intel Core i7-9700K CPU, as well as Nvidia RTX 2080 (8GB GDDR6 VRAM) GPU. As for RAM, it has 16GB DDR4 (2,666MHz) and 256GB of NVMe SSD, as well as 2TB HDD in terms of storage. When it comes to its dimensions, it is not particularly large, coming in at 7” x 15.7” x 18”, and it weighs around 24.25 pounds.
This model also comes with a unique feature, which is the inclusion of hot-swappable 2.5” drive, which makes it very easy to replace a hard drive or an SSD and expand the storage of the system even further.
CyberPowerPC Gamer Supreme
In the second place, we have another expensive option, which will be an excellent solution for those with an extreme budget and a desire to get the best prebuilt gaming PC that they can find. CyberPowerPC Gamer Supreme is a PC that can handle anything, and we do mean anything.
It features a new RTX 2080 Ti 11GB GPU, and as far as the CPU goes — it comes with new Intel Core i9-9900K eight-core CPU. You also won’t lack much in terms of memory, as it comes with 2TB secondary hard drive, and 16GB of DDR4 memory, in addition to 512GB SSD.
As for the rest, CyberPowerPC Gamer Supreme packs a lot of RGB lights, a 120mm AIO cooler, a mouse, keyboard, as well as a mid-tower case with a PSU shroud and a glass side panel.
This model is strong enough to tackle 4K gaming on a 1440P 144Hz gaming monitor, although you could go with a less pricy option if you plan on getting a 1080P monitor.
CyberPowerPC Gamer Supreme is also one of a very limited number of options that will come with a combo of Intel Core i9-9900K and RTX 2080 Ti GPU. You could always build one yourself, but they are not seen together all too often when it comes to prebuilt solutions. All in all, it is an excellent PC, and you won’t regret getting it.
Best prebuilt gaming PCs for those on a budget
If these options are too expensive for your budget — have no fear. There are quite a few great options that come at much more affordable prices, so let us explore several different price ranges, and see what solutions can be found there.
Best prebuilt gaming PCs ($800-$1000)
CyberPower Gamer Xtreme
PC gaming is expensive, there is no denying that. But, if you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend on a prebuilt gaming PC, what do you do? You get the best budget option that you can find.
We believe that one of the best solutions out there comes in the form of CyberPower Gamer Xtreme. This is a cousin of our previous entry, and quite a decent solution for a budget option. In fact, it is pretty tough to beat, as it offers a six-core Intel Core i5-9400 XPU, as well as Nvidia GTX 1660 GPU.
It also comes with 8GB DDR4, 120GB SSD, and 1TB HDD. Of course, you won’t reach maxed-out 4K gaming with this option, but it is more than capable of 1080p gaming if you lower your settings a bit and go for medium to high.
CyberPower Gamer Xtreme also comes with a gaming keyboard, as well as a gaming mouse. You might find its SSD small, but you could always upgrade it at a later date, or simply opt to go for an Xtreme VR which has a larger drive. All in all, we are quite satisfied with this model, and we believe that you are likely to be, as well.
SkyTech Shiva Gaming Computer
Another excellent option in the same price range is SkyTech Shiva Gaming Computer, which will save you quite a bit of money, and still not compromise the quality of its performance. It features Ryzen 5 2600 6-core 3.4GHz (which you can boost up to 3.9GHz as its maximum) CPU, as well as Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 Video Card, with 16GB gaming memory, 500GB DDR4 RAM, and a heat spreader.
Other than that, it comes with 2 USB 2.0 ports, as well as 4 USB 3.0 ports. Its dimensions include 26.2 x 24.5 x 14.2 inches, and it weighs 35.4 pounds.
Generally speaking, this is a pretty good budget prebuilt gaming PC, which will not disappoint you. Just like our previous entry, it cannot be considered the best of the best, but for most gamers, it will be more than a good solution.
CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Master GMA8860CPGV2
Then, we have CYBERPOWERPC’s Gamer Master V2, which is pretty much the most all-round option on the list. Thanks to the fact that it uses RTX 1660 and Ryzen’s 3600 CPU, you will never again have to worry about issues like FPS lag or other technical difficulties.
This build also offers 240GB SSD, 8GB DDR4, as well as 2TB of HD space. It is a stylish model that can handle a good bit of performance-heavy games. After all, we have come to expect quite a lot of CYBERPOWERPC over the years, and they did not disappoint with this model. AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 3. 6GHz 6-Core CPU and Nvidia 1660 will make it easy for you to handle 1080p gaming and forget about all possible issues you may have experienced in the past.
As you can see by its position on the list, this is also a budget option, with a reasonable price and excellent performance. On top of it all comes pre-installed Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
Best prebuilt gaming PCs ($600-$800)
Dell Inspiron Gaming PC
Of course, we mentioned that different options come at different prices, and if you are still not satisfied with the price of the previous three models, we can always go even lower. In this category, we will present some of the best gaming PCs which you can get at a very reasonable price, typically between $600 and $800.
The first on this list is Dell Inspiron Gaming PC, which is one of the smallest prebuilt gaming rigs that you will find. Interestingly enough, it is quite powerful in addition to being small. That combination usually comes at quite a hefty price, but not this time.

This is a model created for higher states of gaming and designed to make your gameplay unforgettable. It also has an interesting, modern design. It will make your gaming fast, and increase it to its maximum capacity. We believe that this is likely one of the best options you can find for this price, and we definitely recommend checking it out.
SkyTech Shadow II Gaming Computer Desktop PC
Then, we have SkyTech Shadow II, which is quite deserving of the place on the list of the best budget options. It comes at an excellent price for what it offers, including 16GB of non-generic G.Skill DDR4 2400 RAM.
Among its most notable components, we have AMD’S Ryzen 5 1400 4-Core CPU, which is hyperthreaded, which means that it can utilize double the number of cores, going up to 8 at maximum. This makes it one of the best multitasking options so far.
It also includes Nvidia GTX 1050 TI 4GB GPU, 1TB HDD, 16 GB DDR4, as mentioned earlier, and a pre-installed Windows 10 Home. This model comes at a perfect combination of price and performance. Its processor is faster than some Intel i5 systems, and combined with this GPU and 16GB of non-generic G.Skill DDR4 2400 RAM — it will truly make a difference when it comes to your gaming experience. It is great for gaming at 1080p, and it even comes with USB Wifi, a keyboard, and a mouse.
HP Pavilion Power Gaming Desktop Computer
Finally, at the end of this segment, we have HP Pavilion Power Gaming Desktop Computer — another extremely good option under $800 which you will likely come to like as much as we do if you decide to choose this option.
This model offers amazing value, and it is a dream come true for anyone who enjoys AMD products. Of course, it does come with its own limitations, but that is only to be expected when it comes to budget versions, and even so — there are not that many things that we were dissatisfied with.
HP Pavilion Power Gaming Desktop Computer comes with AMD’ Radeon RX 580, combined with Ryzen 5 1400 4-Core. When it comes to RAM, it has tons of it. You will get 16GB of DDR4, in addition to 1TB HDD, with a 128GB SSD. With all of this under the hood, its entire system will boot in under 30 seconds, but its greatest value will be shown during gaming.
This model is a hidden gem that comes at an incredible price, and the only major drawback that we have managed to find includes reports of dead-at-arrival computers. However, with a proper return policy, this should not be a problem, and you will enjoy it soon enough even if the initial model comes in a not-quite-alive condition.
We don’t even feel like this model should be upgraded further, as you will get pretty much everything you need for more than decent gaming experience under $800.

CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Ultra GUA883 Desktop Gaming PC
Once again, we return to CYBERPOWERPC, this time with their Gamer Ultra GUA883 Desktop Gaming PC. Unsurprisingly, the first thing you will notice is that this model comes in style, as its design is every bit as beautiful as all other CYBERPOWERPC models we have mentioned. However, this one comes with a significantly more affordable price tag, as well as great speed.
So, apart from great looks, what exactly can you expect out of this model? Let’s start off by mentioning its AMD FX-6300 6 core processor, which offers speeds up to 3.6 GHz.

As for potential drawbacks, you might end up having to lower graphics settings on some games to avoid low FPS and lags. Also, the GPU and CPU are not among the newest, so you might want to consider upgrading them at a later date.
iBUYPOWER Enthusiast Gaming Computer Desktop PC AM010A

We understand that some components of some particular models may be in for a replacement once it gets to your doorstep, but that should not be a problem for most of them. The low-price options, in particular, may require some additional upgrades, if you want to improve their capabilities even further. Still, for casual gamers, and even average ones — what these models offer is quite satisfactory in our opinion.
