Build a Gaming PC with Bitcoin



Game On

One of the most popular categories for buying items on Purse is consumer electronics, especially high-end components like PC parts. Crypto-enthusiasts often love gaming, and mining (which happens to use a lot of GPUs, sometimes causing shortages, sorry not sorry, we need them).

Configuring the perfect build for your next VR-gaming machine can be a lot of fun, but the price can quickly add up when you want to make sure you have all the latest bells and whistles. If you’re a graphic designer/programmer/ or game designer and looking to upgrade your rig for cheap without blowing the bank, we’ve got the plan.

First step is finding the right build. We recommend using a site like PCPartsPicker. They’re excellent as they are kind enough to also list all the retailers that sell the individual components needed for each build, making it easier to find what you need. We’ll be using a similar build to this one for this post which is great for gaming, checking Twitter for the latest crypto-related drama, or making memes (4K, high-quality GIFs are very in-demand).
