That's $250 off its list price. Part for part (including the cost of the OS), I'm at over $600 before factoring in the motherboard (B450 chipset), case, power supply (500W), and keyboard/mouse combo. Add those in and you could easily exceed the asking price by building your own.
Price shopping and things like mail-in-rebates can tip the scales, of course, but no matter how you slice it, the discounted cost here is fair.
ABS Summoner Gaming PC | $749.99 (save $250)
This setup is proof that you don't have to spend a crazy amount of money for a decent gaming PC. The ABS Summoner rocks a brand new third-gen Ryzen 5 3600 CPU, paired with 16GB of RAM. A Radeon RX 590 GPU and 512GB SSD round out the build.
Yes, there are newer GPUs on the market now, but the RX 590 is still a great option for gaming at 1080p on a smaller budget. As a point of reference, Jarred found it to be around 10 percent faster than a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB at that resolution.
