Cyber Monday Gaming PC: Build a 1080p Desktop for $600, 1440p for $750

Cyber Monday is a great time to buy components for an affordable gaming PC build. Normally, if you want to put together a desktop that can play games at 1080p very high or Ultra settings and smooth (60+ fps) frame rates, you’d spend a nice chunk of change. And, if you want to kick the resolution up to 1440p, you might expect to spend closer to $1,000 or even more. 

But right now, with Cyber Monday sales on PC parts bringing CPUs, graphics cards, SSDs and even cases and power supplies down in price, you can build a very serviceable 1080p gaming rig for $600 and a 1440p-capable one for under $750. And whichever you build, you’ll likely save hundreds of dollars off of the price of a prebuilt desktop with similar capabilities.
