If you are looking for a super cheap prebuilt gaming PC that is capable of streaming on Twitch then the Chronos Mini is the computer for you.
7. CyberPowerPC VR Gamer Xtreme
Brand / Model: CyberpowerPC / Gamer Xtreme • Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB • Processor: Intel Core i5-10400F 2.9GHz (6 Core) • Memory: 8GB DDR4 • Hard Drive: 500GB SSD • Motherboard: Intel B460 • Power Supply: 500W • Ports: 1x HDMI, 1x DVI, 1x Display, 8x USB • Operating System: Windows 10 x64 • Extra’s: 802.11AC WiFi, Free Keyboard + Mouse
The CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme is one of the best-prebuilt gaming PC you can currently get on the market. Built to last, this streaming PC is great for streaming on Twitch and has a 500TB SDD, as well as an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 6GB video card.
Pricewise, the Gamer Xtreme has been fluctuating a lot recently. Graphic cards in particular have been difficult for CyberPowerPC to obtain, leading to yet another shortage.
CyberPowerPC replaced a cheaper GTX 1060 3GB with their new GTX 1660 6GB cards. A huge upgrade, but unfortunately this has led to a price increase.
Holding this many high-quality components, the CyberPowerPC VR Gamer Xtreme also gleams with a new beautiful tower case. As the name suggests, this VR Gaming PC can handle VR gameplay, which is also an up-and-coming game style that requires high-end specs.
As such, having a cheap prebuilt gaming PC that is capable of VR like the Gamer Xtreme is extremely handy. It also comes with a free gaming mouse and keyboard so all you need to complete your Twitch streaming setup is a good microphone and webcam.
The only downside is really the price fluctuations. I don’t blame CyberPowerPC for increasing the price but they do need to handle their supply a little better for more stable pricing. All you need to know is that they do fairly price their builds, so if the Gamer Xtreme is above $1000, be ensured that the build is going to be legendary.
6. CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Master Gaming PC

The Game Master is one of CyberPowerPC’s higher-end builds on the market. Recently, a huge amount of CyberPowerPC’s builds went offline due to a major parts shortage. However, the shortage allowed them to get rid of some older and outdated models and upgrade their existing top sellers. Behold, the upgraded Gamer Master in a beautiful new white case.
The Gamer Master holds an AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Processor, a GeForce GT 1030 Graphics Card, a 240GB SSD, and even a 2TB HDD. With a beast like this, you can stream on Twitch and play the newest games without any issues.

The only issue or negative feedback reported on the Blaze by users is that the fans are initially set to the extreme level. You can easily lower this in the Bios if the sound bothers you as you don’t need the fans to be set to hurricane sound levels for it to run perfectly.
4. SkyTech Shadow Gaming Computer

The SkyTech Shadow holds an AMD Ryzen 3 3100 Quad-Core Processor, a GTX 1660 6GB graphics card, as well as a 1TB SDD. All SkyTech’s computers get frequent updates in parts so prices can vary from time to time as SkyTech Gaming upgrades their existing models.

3. SkyTech Blaze II Gaming Computer
Brand / Model: SkyTech Gaming / Blaze II • Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 6GB GDDR5 • Processor: Ryzen 5 2600 (6 Core) • Memory: 8GB DDR4 • Hard Drive: 500GB SSD • Motherboard: A320M • Power Supply: 550W • Ports: 1x HDMI, 1x DVI, 1x Display, 6x USB • Operating System: Windows 10 x64 • Extra’s: Free Keyboard + Mouse

It hosts the GTX 1660 6GB GDDR5 Graphics card, 8GB Gaming Memory DDR4, a 500GB Solid State Drive, and the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 6 core processor. A significant boost to the ArchAngel series, with only a slight increase in price.
For all its overpowered components, a minor downfall is that the Blaze II is the 8GB of RAM, other than that it’s a solid build with lots of potential. You could always add more RAM to the system if you wish to upgrade.
