After throwing salt under the door to scare away beings from another world, it’s time to build a gaming PC to run Phasmophobia at least, or better said, cost-benefit. Therefore, there is no other possible indication than the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G, one of the best processors on the entry-level market and which always appears in the recommendations of FreeGameGuide — precisely because it’s great.

This is a six-core processor that already has an integrated graphics card. This way, you won’t need to buy a dedicated GPU, as this CPU will be able to run Phasmophobia in Full HD, low/medium quality in Full HD resolution, or even something closer to high quality in 900p with adjustments.

The motherboard chosen is a Gigabyte A520M K, which has a good price ratio and will be enough to handle this processor, as it is not the hottest. However, it is extremely important to invest in 16 GB of RAM, preferably with two 8 GB sticks. This enables dual-channel, which improves communication between components and ensures more stable performance.

For storage, we’ll choose a 500GB NVMe SSD so the budget isn’t too expensive, but you’re free as hell to buy a 1TB drive, for example. The source, in turn, does not need to be very powerful. But we will use the MSI MAG A550BN, as this model is always available at low prices during promotions.

Jumping to another ghostly plane, our gaming PC to play Phasmophobia with maximum quality needs some increments. To begin with, the processor chosen is the AMD Ryzen 5 5600. This is a similar model to the previous one, but it is much faster to increase the frame rate and is certainly a great purchase option.

The motherboard is another A520 chipset, but an ASUS TUF Gaming model, which has more security and heat dissipation guarantees. RAM and storage remain the same, but now we will use a Corsair Vengeance memory kit and a 1 TB SSD.

Our graphics card is a Radeon RX 7600 or an Intel Arc A750. The 7600 is a little better than the A750, but this Intel model costs a little cheaper. This way, you must weigh what is most worth it for you and your pocket. In fact, the Radeon RX 6600 is another strong competitor that becomes an excellent recommendation when close to R$1,200.

The recommended power source if you use the Arc A750 is a 650W model, such as the Cooler Master MWE V2. For the others, the same 550W MSI power supply from the previous PC will solve your problems.
