The Best $2,000 Premium Gaming PC Build – July 2021

By Ari Altman | Published June 30, 2021 | Updated July 20, 2021

Critical Update: if you actually want to start gaming on a new PC any time before Fall 2021, you have two options: try to grab one of the few pre-built PCs still for sale, or build up a PC using an older GPU you have on hand. That’s because GPUs are sold out worldwide due to the latest cryptocurrency mining crisis. We present both options to you in this guide.

Looking to build the best gaming PC possible for $2,000? This is it! Incredibly stylish, ultra-quiet, and most importantly, brutally fast, this build offers the very best balance of CPU power, GPU power, and cooling performance out of any of the gaming PCs we profile. We call it “premium” for a reason! And take note: this build doesn’t skimp on the wheels and chassis just to cram in a “big engine”. We’re all about long-term thinking here at TBG, and this is a seriously long-term build!

For July 2021, the $2,000 Premium Gaming PC Build features the blazing-fast AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, an 8-core, 16-thread gaming powerhouse, which easily beats anything that’s come before it (or after it!). And it will be put to good use in this system, which is built around the Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 10GB GPU. But take note: despite being launched in September 2020, you still can’t buy one, and likely won’t be able to get one near MSRP for a very long time! With that said, if you’re willing to run with an older GPU you have on hand for a while, you’ll be able to set up your system with great components. That includes 16GB of ultra-fast DDR4-3600 RGB RAM, a 1TB PCIe-based solid-state drive, and an efficient 700W power supply. Topping it all off is a great-looking high-performance case from be quiet! and a high-powered tower cooler from Scythe. Learn more about this build and .

The Pre-Built Option

  • HOT DEAL! Your best chance to game on a new PC at this point is to go with a pre-built system. Luckily, as of our latest update, this awesome system from Skytech is now available at a great price. It’s equipped with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-core, 16-thread CPU, a huge 360mm liquid cooler, and the awesomely-fast GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 8GB video card, which jumps way ahead of the original 3070! Also on the build list is 32GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, a 1TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD, and a 750W Gold-rated PSU.
    The Guru’s Tip

    This PC has just dropped in price, and we expect it to sell out once everyone catches on to how hot a deal it is!

The DIY Option

  • Based on AMD’s revolutionary Zen 3 architecture, the Ryzen 7 5800X is a truly fantastic processor. It has 8 core and 16 threads all running from a single complex for maximum efficiency, with boost up to 4.7GHz. That means it’s actually the fastest processor available for single-threaded tasks, which many tasks still are.
    The Guru’s Tip

    This CPU does not come with a cooler, and even if it did, you'd still want to awesome upgraded cooler we recommend later in this guide!

  • This feature-packed board gives you everything you need for a PC build at a great price. Dual M.2 PCIe slots for high-speed SSDs (the top slot being Gen 4), six USB ports (including a Type-C port), and built-in WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5. It also has the ample power delivery system required to support any Zen 3 processor.
    The Guru’s Tip

    This board also has a modern Type-C header, allowing you to use the Type-C port built into the case we recommend for this build.

  • CRITICAL UPDATE: The RTX 3080 definitely has the performance you want for this build, it’s just a matter of when you can get one. Due to limited production by Nvidia and tremendous demand from cryptocurrency miners, the 3080 sells for 2-3x its MSRP on eBay.
    The Guru’s Tip

    We anticipate retail availability at the MSRP won't happen until Fall at this point, so your best bet is to use any older GPU you have on hand for now.

  • This awesome 16GB kit will provide more than enough capacity for any game today and for years to come, and thanks to its mind-blowing DDR4-3600 speed and 16-18-18 timings, it will keep your fast CPU fed with data. Plus it offers sweet RGB effects!
    The Guru’s Tip

    Note that we've seen a slight uptick in RAM prices lately, but Crucial has been able to continue offering the best deals, because it makes not just the modules but the RAM chips as well!

  • There’s lots of competition in the SSD market, but SSD pioneer Samsung has put all the other mid-priced offerings to shame with its 980 1TB. It uses the speedy PCIe 3.0 interface and Samsung’s superior TLC NAND to vastly outperform every other PCIe 3.0 drive! To achieve performance any faster, you’d have to spend at least 50% more!

    The Guru’s Tip

    While you could go for a PCIe Gen 4 drive in this system, it doesn't deliver any benefits for gaming. This drive is plenty fast for that!

  • The Pure Base 500DX offers new levels of performance around the $100 pricepoint. It has three high-quality 140mm fans (front, top, and rear), integrated RGB lighting in the front panel and interior of the case, plus a tempered glass side panel to show it all off! Note that you’ll have to hurry to catch this in stock, as it sells out constantly.
    The Guru’s Tip

    be quiet! was the undisputed king of quiet computing cases, but is now a serious contender in the gaming market as well thanks to the 500DX!

  • This awesome fully-modular 700W Gold-rated unit is easy to find in stock most days, unlike most other competing models, so grab it while you can! It provides plenty of power for this system, along with great efficiency and low noise levels.
    The Guru’s Tip

    One of the things we really like about this model that distinguishes it from cheaper units is that it has dual EPS (CPU) power connectors, allowing it to fully support all CPUs on the market.

  • Offering amazing performance thanks to its big heatsink and dual 120mm fans, along with excellent compatibility thanks to its offset design, this is our favorite cooler at any price.
    The Guru’s Tip

    This cooler truly has no peers at its pricepoint, and while it was sold out for much of 2020, it's been in good supply more recently.

  • Windows 10 was a big step up from Windows 8.1, and Microsoft continues to support Windows 10 users not only with regular security updates, but with major content releases every six months. And the USB version installs in under 5 minutes, meaning you can get right into using your system!
    The Guru’s Tip

    The USB version of Windows sells out regularly, but you can always get the downloadable version for $10 less, and use an 8GB+ USB drive to install it.

  • Offering up awesome functionality, a sleek design, and an ultra-fast 18,000 DPI sensor, the Dark Core Pro SE simply has no competition at its pricepoint.
    The Guru’s Tip

    The SE model is able to charge on any flat Qi charger, adding to its versatility.

  • Combining ultra-high-end performance with incredible comfort, this wireless headset from Corsair is the ideal all-day companion for listening to the latest market news. This headset also has an audiophile-grade microphone, perfect for teleconferencing.
    The Guru’s Tip

    This is the headset we've used as our daily driver for over a year - still solid as a rock!

  • Offering up a 27″ 2560×1440 IPS panel capable of a 170Hz refresh rate, and enhanced with FreeSync frame-syncing technology, this is a true high-end monitor that won’t break the bank! Gigabyte may be new to the monitor market, but it’s making a huge splash, offering up tremendous quality at low prices. Previously, you couldn’t get anything but an inferior TN panel for this price!
    The Guru’s Tip

    This model was designed around AMD's FreeSync technology, but Nvidia has enabled its use on GeForce cards, which means you save money versus a G-Sync monitor!
