I'd think that depends on the game and content you want to design. For a mobile game you likely don't need much performance at all. However, if you want to do Call of Duty type games you'll need a higher end PC.

If you want to focus on game content creation then you may find that a higher end PC allows you to do work faster and increases your productivity.

Thank you very much. Jose M.

The challenge you raised is related to the fact that testing your game, in case it involves heavy 3D graphics, requires a modern strong GPU. Those days seems the majority of those GPUs are used for the Crypto market, thus their prices will be 60% or even more than an ultra strong PC.

In case you only interested in the design part, 2D graphics, almost any second hand gamer PC should give you excellent results for a low budget.

On top of that, remember that a large, high resolution screen is require. This will increase the price by a few hundreds $$$ or even more than that.
