Question Rx 6800 1000$ build

Jul 7, 2022
Hey guys, i want to build a pc but my budget is 1000$ and i want rx 6800 to be in the build as well. Can you help me with some other components to be in that 1000$ budged? Thx <3


The link you posted is for a "renewed" card, which means it has been inspected and refurbished by amazon.
Your original post didnt mention willingness to use refurb parts, so I assumed new prices applied.


Thats sort of a difficult topic.
It depends alot on the kind of use the card saw before getting sent back, what exactly was the issue (if any), and who does the refurbishing.

Not PC related, but Canon refurbishes their cameras and sells them directly, they are essentially new and are inspected better than new models. I trust them entirely.

I wouldnt trust amazon nearly as much.

Chances are, the card could have just been returned without being used much if at all.
Or, it could have been used for mining, returned, and a tech says "looks good" and sends it back out.

Personally, I wouldnt buy a refurb card from amazon. A manufacturer directly, sure.


Its been quite some time since Ive actually done a parts list, so I borrowed one from another similar thread from forum member hellfire13
Its a bit over budget, but you can swap the 6700XT for a 6600XT/3060 to save some cash, and/or swap for a cheaper processor.

That should be a good system. I personally am running an amd ryzen 5 3600 on an old b350 board with 16gb ram, etc and a 6700xt. At least for 1080p 144 hz, it runs pretty well. I could probably upgrade to 1440p, but with my current screen, I don’t necessarily feel a need to upgrade. The point is it performs pretty well for my needs.
I like what you are doing here
ill play along

if ya dont have a case and a hard drive, youd better steal some with this budget

this leave you some i5/i7 upgrade room and I sure hope you dont think you'll overclock this
I hope your states taxes arent out of control

all parts are directly from amazon no other sellers included.

Good luck!

stretch a little further and get a reasonable setup

149 seems worth it.
