Under $550 Desktop PC


I'm gonna start posting ideas for PCs once every week or two weeks. A $550 Micro Center build will involve refurbished parts, but will be good in quality and will also provide some better budget to performance than my $650 build. However, that means this build will not have much upgradability, besides a slightly stronger GPU and a CPU upgrade to the Intel Core i7-4770.

Dell Optiplex 9020 Desktop Off-Lease($279.99)

ASUS GeForce GTX 1650 Phoenix OC($209.99)

Solid Gear Basix 600W PSU($24.99)

This build also INCLUDES Windows 10 Pro, which means that you will save some cash on that as well :D. Hope this build gives you some inspiration on your PC builds.
