La PlayStation 5 will officially arrive in Peru on November 19 with the price of S / 2,999, a sum that many fans of the brand will pay without problem. But what can we do with a similar budget in the field of computers? Remember, these can also be used for teleworking.
We have assembled these two referential configurations, based on the prices observed by different online stores in Peru.
The build that will accommodate the most
We opted for a processor AMD Ryzen 3 3100 accompanied by a motherboard A520M, a fairly balanced pair if we consider that we have no intention of overclocking.
We could stick to 8GB of RAM, but many current games are already more demanding, so at once we take advantage of the dual channel with a 16GB configuration with two sticks. If you fall short on this budget, you could start with an 8GB stick and then buy another one in the future.
A humble SSD SATA M.2 at 120 GB it will work for our operating system. A 1TB hard drive will ensure enough space for our games.
The video card is a 8GB Radeon 570, which we find at a very competitive price. It will serve us for a good gaming experience at Full HD (1080p).
A 500W source is enough. Remember to look for a certified 80 Plus. A bad source of power can spoil everything.
We estimate the price of a reliable case at 200 soles. Remember to check that your components fit smoothly and have a front USB 3.0 connector.
Thus we achieve a lower budget than the standard version of the PlayStation 5 in Peru.
We go for more
Do you have a little more budget? Let’s improve our running PC a bit Some games at 1440p or take advantage of a Full HD monitor with high refresh rate.
We go with a Ryzen 5 3500X processor, extremely similar to the Ryzen 5 3600. The Ryzen 5 3600 has twice the number of threads, but this will not be noticeable in games. Now, if you’re aiming to dedicate your computer to productivity as well, the Ryzen 5 3600 would be an interesting improvement.
We keep the 16GB of RAM and make some adjustments to the SSD storage. The space is doubled to also store some programs.
We thought about the RX 5600XT for this configuration, but we find the NVIDIA GTX 1660 Super at a very tempting price (almost 300 soles less).
With a bigger budget you can add a SSD with more storage, opt for the aforementioned Ryzen 5 3600 to improve productivity and even for a RX 5700.
Where are the RTX 30?
These configurations are intended on a not-so-high budget. Remember that the great thing about building a PC is that the possibilities are endless!
