2. The components

3. The gaming PC in detail

Processor and graphics unit

For the CPU, we rely on the well-known & popularAMD Ryzen 5 3400G processor (APU) with very strong integrated Vega 11 graphic. This processor offers an extraordinarily good price-performance ratio and is rightly referred to in the press as the "price-performance miracle". It is significantly faster than all Intel CPUs with an integrated iGPU. The processor clocks on all four cores with up to 4.2Ghz turbo clock and the integrated graphics unit is based on the new AMD Vega architecture.

The Vega 11 graphics module is strong enough to be able to display almost all current games (even Battlefield 5 in 64-player multiplayer) without any problems. Esports games like CSGO, Overwatch etc. can even be played on medium and high settings. This iGPU is on the move in terms of performance on par with an AMD Radeon RX550 and makes a dedicated graphics card unnecessary in this price range.

In addition, the processor is extremely strong in terms of multicore performance, which is what it is Future proof and thus makes it perfect as a basis for an upgrade system. The processor is delivered as a boxed version - that means a cooler is included and does not have to be bought separately.


The processor is used on theMSI B450M Pro-VDHwhich offers the best equipment in the price range. It is probably the cheapest B450 board, offers four RAM slots, one m.2 slot (PCIe x4 connection), the BIOS is super clear and even beginners should be able to find their way around quickly.

In general, we get all the equipment we need for a small thaler and the board is always a solid basis for a budget system. For the Ryzen and the price range, most other boards would be pure overkill.


In addition, there are plenty of them 16GB Corsair Vengeance (2x 8GB) DDR4 memory with fast 3600 Mhz for use.

We are relying on two modules that provide more speed in the Dual channel operate. Dual-channel is now mandatory anyway, as we would achieve significantly less performance with a single 8GB module.

In addition, the built-in APU benefits immensely from fast RAM, so that the surcharge for the 3600Mhz Corsair modules makes perfect sense! The speed advantage compared to e.g. 3000Mhz is noticeable.


Our hard drive is super fast Patriot P300 NVMe (PCIe x2) SSD. It is faster than average (up to 1700MB / s read rate), offers enough space for the operating system, all data and a few games.

It also shines with its low failure rates and very quiet operating noise. Unfortunately, no further HDD fits into the system for € 400! Since it is easier to install an SSD first and to retrofit an HDD later, we recommend using an SSD first. Optional (or later) can be a quick 1TB high-performance hard drive from Toshiba be ordered. It is faster than average and offers enough space for many applications and games.

power adapter

The brand new one provides sufficient energy for our system and reserves for future upgrades 400W be quiet! System Power 9 ready. It offers one excellent quality, All of us need protective circuits and it is a significantly improved version of the old System Power 8. It offers multirail, DC-DC technology and, moreover, now even an 80+ bronze certification. In addition, the power supply unit shines with its very low volume, even under load!


As a housing, we use Antec NX100 Midi Towerwith USB 3.0. This offers enough space for all components and also comes with a pre-installed case fan. Of course, you can also use any other housing at this point - that's completely up to you. The Antec case offers an extremely good price-performance ratio, especially due to the pre-installed fan.


If you still use media such as DVDs and CDs, or would like to watch or burn Blu-Rays on your PC, you can also purchase an optical drive. A stronger CPU cooler is not required, since the enclosed one is absolutely sufficient for this model and does its job with a very low volume. All in all, with this gaming PC you have the best price-performance ratio in this price range!
