Looking to get into PC gaming over Christmas? Then here's a very cost-effective option.
Every now and again I talk to someone who mentions that they wouldn't mind getting into PC gaming, but it's been ages since they owned a solid rig, and they're intimidated about putting their own rig together. And that's fair enough: not everyone wants to tinker around with stuff.
But you don't have to spend thousands to get a rig together that can handle games at 1080p. Techfast are selling a Ryzen 5 2600 machine now through eBay for $840 (using the PLUGIT20 checkout code) will get you a rig with 8GB RAM, a GTX 1060, two 24" 1ms LED monitors, a 120GB SSD, and all the other bits and pieces sans Windows 10.
If you've got someone who just wants to get into Fortnite, CS:GO, Overwatch or a ton of indies on PC, and you want a rig that can be beefed up quite simply, this would be a very welcome Christmas gift.
If you already have a monitor lying around, you can get the same rig sans screens for $671.20. All you'll need to think about upgrading in the short term is some RAM and a second hard drive, and you've got a PC that can hold its own admirably with everything released in 2018.
