Cyber Vyper

I went with a "GPU 1st" philosophy when speccing out this build, much like the "engine 1st" philosophy of the Dodge Viper development team. Thus the Cyber Vyper.

Welcome to the very first PC Gamer Best PC Builds competition!

It's an open secret that here at PC Gamer we love PC Building. Building your own PC makes for a fun weekend project, and nets you the biggest performance bang for your buck. It's hard to match the sweet satisfaction of customizing each component to fit your specifications and needs. We want to share the joy of PC Building with the entire community, which is why we're challenging you to submit your best performing builds at the lowest possible price in a number of categories.

The competition will run from April 17th till April 27th. This means you have 10 days to submit your builds!

We've extended the submission period until May 4th! May the fourth be with you and may your builds bring order to the galaxy!


This is the $2000 Ultra High Quality Cyberpunk 2077 Category
If you build it now, the game will come? Here's to hoping! We're looking for the best performing builds are $2000 or less. We will favor submissions that are RTX ready and can play the upcoming AAA titles (like Cyberpunk 2077) with ultra or high quality graphics settings.

How does it work?
We're gonna break this competition down into 4 parts:
  1. Submit your builds​
  2. After a week of submissions, the PC Gamer staff will pick their top 5 in each category. We will judge primarily on quality of components, price, and theoretical system performance.​
  3. Users vote on their favorite build of the top 5.​
  4. We feature the winning builds in each category on the PC Gamer homepage.​

How do I submit a build?

  1. Head to the PCPartPicker System Builder.
  2. Build your system!
  3. When you're all set, smash that BB code button
  4. Copy the BB code
  5. Head to this thread, respond hit the BB code toggle in the tool bar
  6. Paste the BB code and post your thread!

Ground Rules - Read this or you will be disqualified :)

  • Only one build per budget category, per user. Multiple builds from a single user or duplicate accounts will be disqualified.
  • Do not go over budget.
  • Use list prices only: coupons, rebates, bundles or any other limited-time offers will not be accepted.
  • Do not include shipping or tax in your final budget.
  • Do not include the Operating System, Monitor or VR Headset, Keyboard, Mouse or Gamepad.
  • All builds must have a name.
  • Do not put your forum handle in the name of your build, and avoid odd capitalizations & symbols.
  • We encourage users to use PCPartPicker's System Build for speedy construction.
  • Do not post a link to your build, but rather please be sure to export as BBCode for a quick copy/paste to the forums

Here are links to all three build categories:

$500 Min Spec Console Killer
$1000 Streaming and Gaming Build
$2000 Ultra High Quality Cyberpunk 2077 Build

Good luck and may the best build win!
