It's that time again! Time to update the BestConfigs! Once again, we are opening the field to user recommendations to get the best consensus for the absolute best of the best in each category. This time, we're going to limit builds to price points, rather than function, as most rigs are geared towards gaming. We're also going to drop the term "BestConfigs" and simply go with "Best PC Builds", since that's way easier to understand.

Your challenge is to create builds in any of the following eight brackets:


  1. Best Gaming Build Under $500
    Best Gaming Build Under $750
    Best Gaming Build Under $1000
    Best Gaming Build Under $1250
    Best Gaming Build Under $1500
    Best Gaming Build Under $1750
    Best Gaming Build Under $2000
    Bonus: Best Steam Machine Build Under $600
With these ground rules to follow:


  • ■Do not go over budget.
    ■Use only Amazon to source parts - we already use Newegg for the SBM, sorry.
    ■Use list prices only: coupons, rebates, bundles or any other limited-time offers will not be accepted.
    ■Do not include shipping or tax in your final budget.
    ■Do not include the Operating System, Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse or Gamepad (Steam Machine).
    ■Do not put your forum handle in the name of your build, and avoid odd capitalizations & symbols.
    Provide linksto the Amazon product pages of each component — we encourage users to use PCPartPicker's System Build for speedy construction. Do not post a link to your build, but rather please be sure to export as BBCode for a quick copy/paste to the forums.
    ■The Steam Machine must be around the size of current-gen consoles and have Wi-Fi.
Once all of the builds have enough submissions, we’ll close the threads and our Community team will filter the submissions for adherence to the ground rules. Next, our Editorial team will filter the builds for compatibility issues (e.g. PSU won’t fit together with graphics card in case). The remaining rigs will be put up for public vote in the forums, and the top builds in each thread will go on to become our Best PC Builds!

Please be sure to format your list of components as follows:

Build Name
Good luck, and may the best builds win!

Strong cpu & a gpu almost as good as a GTX960. And 128GB fast storage. For less than $500. Nice.

a 6300 comes close to an i3, for for much less money. a Light overclock on the default cooler and a 950 GPU gives you excellent 1920x1080 gaming. A Hybrid drive gives some of the benefit of an SSD while keeping costs down

Updated. Parts now link to amazon pages.

Why the name? Well, it has Skylake and the R7 370 has its roots in Pitcairn, an island, hence Sky Island.
I choose the i3-6100 based on tests from Digital Foundry, which show it performing on par and often even exceeding a stock 2500K in modern games. Coupled with some decently fast DDR4 RAM, and its 2C/4T should remain relevant long after it's become outdated. The R7 370 is a very solid performer, and a decent improvement over its previous Pitcairn incarnations. According to Techpowerup it is generally faster than the GTX 950 at 1080p and the second-best bang for your buck GPU at 1080p, unfortunately, the best is beyond this build's budget, unless you want to compromise CPU/GPU balance.

The rest of the build isn't spectacular, but won't compromise the experience either. Performance should be the key metric in this build, even if some luxuries must be sacrificed. I still managed to get a motherboard with 4 dimm slots, though, so that adds some upgrade room.
 


Ugh I didn't realize the new i3s were out already...

Thoughts on build: Build name comes from the expression "Front Line Soldier" that represents those doing the hard yards at the front of battle. No seperate cooling was required as the i3 comes with it's own fan. The SSD was sacrificed for a HDD that allowed more budget to be allocated for a good GPU.

With a slightly higher budget of $13 my recommendation would be to replace the HDD with 64GB SSD (an additional $13) or for $34 add a 64GB SSD to the existing system and use the SSD as the primary drive. An additional $52.99 will get you an LG WH16NS40 Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer.

Thoughts:For a future friendly build, it has to be quadcore. i3 is not going to cut it down the road. It is very difficult to build a capable gaming rig around a $500 strict budget as the processor takes near 40% of the budget already. Have chosen 370 as it has higher performance than 950. Quadcore i5 with R7 370 can handle all genres at 1080P.
