TechNutz: This guide will focus on building the best high performance Intel gaming PC without killing your wallet. Intel has taken the CPU performance crown for quite some time now with it’s brutally efficient architecture and IPC (instructions per clock). You pay a premium however for this type of performance vs. buying an AMD based system. I have received quite a few requests lately regarding an Intel gaming PC build for around $1500. You can get really awesome performance with this kind of budget and I will update this post monthly so you get the best deal and best hardware combinations. You want a great Intel gaming PC … so let’s build one.
