Price to Performance This Time!

Today's gem: a Ryzen 7 2700X & RX 5700XT build that nails aesthetics & price-to-performance at just $600. Don't miss this hidden treasure!

Price to Performance This Time!

Some of us like to specifically target aesthetics, and others only care about the price to performance. Somehow today’s featured build captures both of them! This Ryzen 7 2700X and RX 5700XT build is rocking hardware that’s several generations old which will detract some unaware buyers, but at a $600 price point, this is a hidden gem that someone needs to swoop up right away.

Favorite Features

  • RX 5700XT – Launched back in 2019, this graphics card is still an absolute tank for 1080p and even some 1440p gaming in 2023. 5000 series cards certainly aren’t on the radar of most people who are casually looking to buy a prebuilt, but if more people knew about this card a build like this would sell instantly. The RX 5700XT beats the super popular (and much more expensive) RTX 3060 12GB in almost every game and you obviously won’t find a 3060 build for this kind of price.
  • ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming WiFi II – It’s not often that I’ll highlight a motherboard as one of my top 3 features, but I absolutely love this selection in a build like this. Not only is it a fairly new motherboard in general, but it’s also rocking built-in WiFi, solid overclocking support, and huge CPU upgrading potential. The B550 platform allows you to upgrade the Ryen 7 2700X to something like a Ryzen 5600X or 5700X without any issue meaning that that this PC can grow with you for several years to come.
  • 2x NVMe Drives – Although a single 1TB NVMe drive would have been ideal, it’s nice that this build is including 2 separate ~500GB NVMe drives instead of just one. At the $600 build price we’ll typically see 500GB of total storage, so it’s nice to see the bump up to 1TB. You can of course upgrade one of these over time if you need more storage too.

Price to Performance Value

Value is my favorite part of this build. I was actually writing about a different 5700XT build that I found at a similar price point, but when I went to search the competition on Jawa by looking for other 5700XT builds I found this one. Not only is this possibly the best price to performance $600 build on the website right now, but it also has a very clean and aesthetic design with white parts and RGB options. Killer value here, nobody will regret a purchase like this.

First Upgrades

The Ryzen 7 2700X might start to show its age soon, but it’s not a huge concern. Because everything else in the build is well balanced, I would probably choose to upgrade to a Ryzen 5000 series processor first, but it’s definitely not necessary right away. The Ryzen 5 5600X or Ryzen 7 5700X would be my two picks, but feel free to scale beyond that if you want to.


This one should have sold already, but the slightly older hardware is what’s holding it on the platform for longer. If anyone is searching for a budget to mid-range gaming PC prebuilt with an amazing price to performance and aesthetic value, then this is the one they should buy.
