The AMD Combat Crate Bundle is hoping to give buyers all the components they would need to build a decent gaming PC. At a time when Bitcoin and cryptocurrency mining has caused PC gaming components to skyrocket in price, this new bundle from AMD hopes to restore some power back to the PC gamer.

The Combat Crate Bundle currently offers buyers a Ryzen 5 1600 with cooler, an MSI B350 Tomahawk motherboard and an MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC graphics card for just $550. This price comes in lower than buying each piece individually, especially considering the inflated costs of PC parts since the cryptocurrency craze. This setup gives buyers a fairly impressive gaming rig, as the RX 580 GPU performs about as well as the more expensive NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060.
