ULTIMATE $1000 Cyberpunk 2077 Build

This is a build that should be great for Cyberpunk 2077. We have not tried every part, but based on our knowledge, experience, specs and reviews, we feel comfortable in suggesting them. We will try to update this as requirements and prices change.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 – This is probably the best entry level CPU for gaming. David has this in his rig. With 6 cores/12 threads, this CPU can handle almost everything. Good for mid-range to high-end GPUs. Only bottlenecks with very high-end GPUs.
GPU: RTX 2060 – Capable of running games at 1440p resolution. This card has ray-tracing to support Cyberpunk 2077. If you do not care about ray-tracing then go for a RX 5700/5700XT.
MOBO: ASRock B450M PRO4 – This is a quality motherboard with everything you need. William has this in his rig. If you want PCIe 4.0, then you can get a B550/X570 board.
RAM: Corsair 16GB – Cyberpunk recommends 16GB. We have this kit. RAM is reasonably priced these days so grab yourself 16GB at least.
SSD: WD Blue 1TB SSD – WD makes great drives. We mainly use WD. You may opt for a NVME so we also recommend a WD Blue SN550 1TB NVMe Internal SSD – Gen3 x4 PCIe 8Gb/s, M.2 2280, 3D NAND, Up to 2,400 MB/s – WDS100T2B0C instead.
PSU: EVGA 600W BR – EVGA is the brand we trust. We have a couple of the 500W versions. 600W should help you upgrade in the future.
Case: NZXT H510 – This case goes on sale often and is highly recommended. Looks great with tempered glass side panel and includes a USB Type-C port.
