Pre-built gaming PCs are cheaper and more powerful than ever. Before deciding to use a gaming PC, here are some suggestions.
The purpose of buying a game console was once only suitable for those who had more money than time, but those days are long gone. In recent years, the price of game consoles has dropped so much that you no longer save as much as before when you build your own game console. In contrast, even if you pay a higher price for the same hardware, you will get useful additional information when buying a gaming PC kit, such as support, warranty, and bundle discounts. However, before deciding to buy, there are a few things to consider first to ensure that the pre-built PC system is suitable for gaming.
What is the price of the game console package?
The price of game consoles is between 500 and 3000 Euros. In some cases, there is no upper limit. The deciding factor of the price is the built-in hardware. In order to gain a competitive advantage by playing games at 4K resolution or using the accuracy of the mouse and keyboard in the game, you must study your pockets more deeply. In addition, the gaming PC is a social gaming environment. They provide access to a multiplayer gaming ecosystem in which friends and strangers occupy the same digital space. For example, in MMORPGs such as “World of Warcraft”, MOBAs such as “League of Legends” and social PC game applications such as “Discord” and “Steam”. A higher quality PC system can provide a better gaming experience, and of course it can provide a longer time. If you choose a cheaper PC system, you run the risk of having to replace your gaming PC only after 1 to 2 years. In the long run, it is worthwhile to make a higher initial investment in a gaming PC.
Which PC system should you buy?
There was a time when game consoles were so expensive that despite the many benefits mentioned, there was actually no need to spend money to invite others to assemble these things. But the facts have changed: the prices of assembled gaming PCs are now more consistent with the prices of individual components, and there are more and better options to choose from.
Which game console you should buy depends on your own needs. High-quality gaming PC suites now cost about 1,000 euros. The best way to start is to make simple comparison calculations between DIY gaming PCs and gaming PCs. If you absolutely need a specific graphics card or a specific computer case, then in most cases, you cannot build your own gaming PC.
Which components are important in gaming PCs?
The components required to build a gaming PC largely correspond to those required for a normal desktop PC:
Random Access Memory (RAM)
Storage drive (hard disk or SSD)
Graphics card (GPU)
Ventilation and cooling
The following components are particularly decisive for the performance of gaming PCs:
Motherboard: The motherboard is the most important part of a computer. Because it determines which additional components are compatible with the computer. For example, not every CPU is suitable for every motherboard, and not every motherboard supports the connection of multiple graphics cards or specific graphics cards.
Graphics card (GPU): The heart of every gaming PC. The graphics card is crucial for frame rate, resolution and performance. A high-quality graphics card is very important for a good gaming PC.
Main memory (RAM) and processor (CPU): Main memory and CPU must match the performance of the graphics card. If the gaming PC has insufficient processor or memory, a high-performance graphics card is almost useless.
What can I do with a gaming PC?
Of course, the obvious answer is that you can use it to play video games. But gaming PCs have many other advantages. They are high-performance technical machines that can be used in other fields such as rendering or video editing. For example, the resource-intensive PCB design program Altium Designer works well on a good gaming PC. Therefore, the gaming PC can not only provide first-class entertainment effects, but also can be used as a high-performance workstation. A powerful gaming PC can greatly improve your work efficiency and save valuable working time. The installation of a gaming PC may be much better than the one used in the office.
