2000$ Gaming Pc Build

The CPU and GPU parts

Processor part

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 is the most powerful gaming computer in the market right now. It's a beast in both power consumption and performance. So, we can't just leave it at 1080p resolution. We need to get this system overclocked up to 27.5 GHz. That seems like an ambitious goal but it'll be worth every bit of effort.

I'm going to talk about the motherboard. Just because the motherboard has one GPU on it doesn’t mean you can’t have lots of GPUs on your motherboard too. I got the same ASUS E3-512G as most of my friends do but that didn’t fit the motherboard but with more GPUs. My motherboard has 4 GPUs, each having a single PCI-E 4.0 slot for expansion. The motherboard itself has 16 GB memory onboard. Each GPU also gets a 1 TB PCIe NVMe SSD.

The motherboard provides 24 GB RAM with UHD support, so it will support 60 Hz frames rate. You will find the main case, an HDMI connector, two USB 3.0 ports, SD card slots and some other connectors. There is a full size SD card slot on it. But there are no DVD storage slots on it and only 8GB on it.

The motherboard has several other chips on it too. A M.2 2880 bay for memory expansion and a few RAM chips, including NAND flash that can provide 10Gb/s transfer speeds. That’s not much but it does the job.

The motherboard has two 7200 Mhz fan and a dual 850W PSU. The fans also help spread out any heat and help cool off the GPU and its components as well (see video).

I’ve also bought another set of fans in case of overheating because of all these things that make it seem like the motherboard is running pretty hot in reality. In the past few days, I did notice the motherboard using too much electricity and the temperatures were rising quickly. The CPU on the motherboard was getting quite heated due to it.

I wanted to buy more RAM chips (not going to say anything negative about that), but they were quite expensive. They cost around $500 dollars, even though the motherboard had many memory chips on it, it wouldn't be able to hold them. When I went to look at the specs of the RAM, I found two different models and it appeared similar but when I looked into those models, there was quite a lot difference. For instance, the second model used DDR5 RAM but mine also uses DDR4. Therefore, I had to decide which RAM model would go for whatever price I’d get from our motherboard company.

So, the plan was to choose the right amount of RAM model and pick one or two as per the motherboard case. And since RAM is very important, I picked both models. Even though I thought it could hurt the motherboard’s performance, the results seemed positive, especially when I started playing games. On Day 4, GPU temperatures increased slightly but I think the CPU has become stable even if it is still getting warm. Since then, I haven’t seen any extreme heating problems and all those fans have been doing their job to keep the temperature under control. Overall, everything’s fine with the system so far.

The motherboard and chips both work well with my setup, I hope I get to build out the desktop PC next year. I do own some old cases but those need to be upgraded. Fortunately, the motherboard and memory are ready for the upgrade. I’m looking forward to it!

The motherboard was purchased by a local company called NZXT. He offers plenty of information to choose a motherboard for your needs. His website lists 4 options they have for the motherboard. One will use SATA, the other one LAN and the third one has a combination of both.

The product ID of his motherboards and the prices aren’t official, but let’s assume he gives us a limited time offer (we all know how quick customers are nowadays). So they had a 50% discount for the first batch and I couldn’t resist.

If the motherboard is made by NZXT, it was designed by NZXT and can have a huge impact on the motherboard so I was expecting it to be a bit heavy. However, it was pretty light, it’s a thin case that makes it easy to install and it comes with various cables so that should be enough for almost any motherboard. Not so for NZXT, it comes with only a couple of cables but those can get connected to all the other components by using additional cable pairs.

This motherboard can either double as the GPU of your laptop system or as the motherboard you needed for some systems in your home. Either way, it’ll be great to have it. If you want to install multiple GPUs on your GPU, you should consider buying something else. Or buy a separate GPU altogether. At least one for each card. I’ve kept it here though. I already installed three of my cards and I’m hoping to add more.

Motherboard motherboard

I’ve decided to purchase a motherboard this time and this one is fairly nice. It’s a compact design so that can fit into my hand without adding weight. It looks good and looks a bit like what most modern PCs look like. As the name suggests, it features the motherboard with four sides and they offer some interesting designs.

I picked this because it is a small board and my budget can bear it. Also, it supports WiFi and Bluetooth I think that’s necessary for most setups. Now, let me take a closer look at the hardware components, shall we?
