What Is The Best PC For Gaming?

So, you are looking to buy a new gaming pc. What is the best PC for gaming? Today I will provide some advice on just what to look for when you want to upgrade your old computer to a new gaming PC. Let’s take a look at the different components that you will need for your new gaming PC.

There are many factors to consider when buying a new computer. If you’re looking to upgrade from an older system, it’s better to first check what kind of system requirements are required by the game or software that you want to run on your pc (don’t just go by the minimum requirements because they are rarely enough). Look at what other people say about their computers in terms of performance and benchmarks, so that you can get an idea of how well your own machine will be able to handle it.

If you’re looking to put together a PC with multiple monitor support, the video card will be more important than the CPU or the motherboard. There are many different video cards available but if you want great performance without breaking the bank, I would recommend going for any of Nvidia’s top models like GTX 670 or 680. The best GPU in terms of price/performance ratio is probably AMD Radeon HD 7950. Many people prefer Nvidia cards because they provide better image quality and performance in many games.

If you want to run your PC 24/7 without worrying about any crashes, I strongly recommend buying a very good power supply unit (PSU) of at least 750 W. The more the better here because a PSU can only deliver its full potential when under load. You also don’t want to end up with a computer that keeps rebooting every few hours or days even though it is new, just because the components draw too much power from the PSU for it to handle.

You’ll also need RAM for your gaming pc – preferably 8GB or 16GB if you have money to spare. Most CPUs support DDR3 RAM but there are still some good deals on DDR2 RAM as well. If you want to run 64-bit Windows, I recommend buying a motherboard with an AM3 socket and DDR3 RAM slots.

Also buy a good quality case, power supply unit (PSU) and hard disk storage for your new gaming PC. They are not too expensive either so it shouldn’t cause any problems if you don’t go cheap on them. But even if you have the money to spare, a cheap PSU can cause many problems down the line so make sure that the one that you buy is of high quality or purchased from a reputable brand.  

Just remember these considerations when upgrading your current computer to a new gaming pc yourself, or ask knowledgeable friends about what they think/know regarding all these things if you don’t know enough about it.  

50 things to consider before buying a gaming PC.

1. The best PC for gaming has the most powerful graphics card and CPU

2. It also needs a high-quality cooling system to keep it from overheating

3. A fast internet connection is essential because gamers need to download large files quickly

4. You’ll want an SSD or HDD with plenty of space, at least 256GB

5. For games that require more than 4 GB of RAM, you’ll need 8 GB or 16 GB

6. If you’re on a budget, there are some good options available in the $600-$800 range

7. Make sure your monitor can support the refresh rate of your chosen GPU (60Hz)

8. Consider buying a prebuilt PC rather than a DIY PC

9. Go for a system that’s easy on your ears (quiet) and eyes (low blue light)

10. Step up to an M.2 SSD if you can afford it; it will speed things up immensely because they’re so fast

11. A wired mouse and keyboard is preferable, but gaming mice are sometimes latency-free

12. You’ll want a powerful CPU and GPU in addition to lots of RAM  (6 GB or more). One of the best examples of this comes from Alienware with their Area-51m laptop, which is specifically designed for a desktop replacement. It’s one of the most powerful laptops available right now, thanks to its very high-end components. However, it comes at a hefty price of $2,199; just about twice as high as most gaming laptops.

13. You’ll want a system with an SSD or hybrid drive. That’s where the OS and you’re most frequently played games are stored so you can load them up quickly. This is known as the “SSD boot drive”, which allows accessing the computer faster while playing.  For example, Nvidia has its own version called NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) which they claim will double the performance over traditional SATA drives.

14. If you get tired of waiting for something to load on your PC, there are ways to speed things up by using your hard disk more efficiently. For example, getting an SSD can boost the speed of your computer immensely.

15. If you’re just getting into PC gaming, you might not need to buy a top-of-the-line system right away.  You can tweak things later on if you find out that you really want more power, or upgrade one component at a time as money allows.

16. Some SSDs are faster than others, so it’s important to do some research before buying one because prices and speeds vary quite a bit from model to model. It is possible to get an affordable SSD with fast read and write speeds, though it typically requires sacrifice incapacity; but the new M.2 PCIe drives have been released which address this concern by being both large (1 TB) and fast (4 GB/s reads).

17. A portable hard drive can come in handy for storing downloaded games and movies if you don’t have enough space on your SSD or HDD. Just be sure to back up your important files frequently, as portable drives are more prone to failure than internal ones.

18. If you want a gaming computer that will last more than several years, then investing in an SSD is definitely worth it because they’re so much faster than traditional hard drives. For example, using an SSD with a hard drive can increase the speed of Windows 10 by over 100%, while extending the life of your existing hard drive.

19. You’ll need a powerful processor to enjoy PC gaming. At a minimum: Intel Core i5-4590  or an AMD FX-6300.

20. You’ll want a dedicated graphics card with 3 GB of RAM like the Nvidia GTX 760 or AMD Radeon R9 270. Both can be found for less than $200, even though they used to cost much more.

21. You’ll need about 8 GB of RAM if you plan on playing games at high resolution and want to multitask as well; 16 GB is better if you’re going to do video editing and other intensive programs along with gaming.

22. It’s best to get Windows 10.

23. Make sure to get a disc drive (if you don’t already have an external one) so that you can install discs and software as well as write and read Blu-Ray discs. If your computer doesn’t come with a disc reader, then it’s possible to add one externally by way of a USB connection or even internally through the motherboard. Otherwise, you may be able to find games digitally from Steam, Origin, Uplay etc…

24. A gaming laptop might be better than a gaming desktop if you plan on taking your machine on the road often because they’re small enough to carry around easily without compromising the quality of their components.  The downside is that they’re typically more expensive than desktop equivalents.

25. A widescreen monitor will make a huge difference in how you experience PC gaming.  It allows for greater peripheral vision, as well as faster response time and less motion sickness for some people. If you play with a controller, then having one large enough to fit all the keys is ideal.

26. Experiment with different video game genres to find out what kinds of themes or gameplay settings appeal most to you. Popular examples include first-person shooters like “Call of Duty” and open-world games like “Assassin’s Creed”. If you’re a strategy buff, then there are plenty of options available to satisfy your needs as well such as “Starcraft” and “World of Warcraft.”  You’re also bound to run into at least one “Minecraft” clone somewhere down the line.

27. If you’re looking for a new game, then waiting until it goes on sale instead of buying it right away can save you as much as 75% off what the original price was, especially if you go with a PC version instead of a console one. Some games that are in high demand have even been known to sell for over $300 on popular auction sites like eBay.

28. Each new generation of processors brings more and more power, but they typically aren’t worth upgrading to unless your existing hardware is 5+ years old. For example, the Intel Core i7-4790K [4] promises to run about 10% faster than the i7-4770K, but it costs $100 more.

29. If you have a large collection of older games that are incompatible with newer systems, then investing in something like an XBOX 360 emulator can give your old favourites new life on PC. This way you can save money by not having to rebuy those titles again and enjoy them in HD.

30. Don’t buy a gaming desktop because you think it’s cheaper than getting a laptop (or vice versa). In reality, there pretty much isn’t any difference between PC laptops and desktops under $1500; they’re both powerful enough for most people and often priced similarly as well. The only time when laptops are actually better is if you’re going to be taking your computer on the road often and want something small.

31. Always consider the cost of peripherals.  For example, a basic mouse costs only about $10, but a gaming mouse can set you back anywhere from $50-$150 depending on how many features it has such as DPI counts colour-changing LEDs or even programmable buttons. A keyboard usually goes for between $15-60, while a monitor will generally run you at least $100 (but can easily be several times that value).

32. The most popular video game genres in PC include first-person shooters like “Call of Duty” and RPGs like “World of Warcraft”. If you’re not sure whether you want to play something like this, then check out the free demos of most games before buying them.

33. Watch gameplay videos on Youtube or Twitch first if you’re interested in a game to see how it feels. A lot of times PC titles will have special features that aren’t present in console releases and vice versa so you can make an informed decision about what version is best for you. 

34. If a game supports more than one platform, then consider getting it for the PC instead because mods are typically possible here. Some even turn a mediocre title into a great experience just by virtue of being able to overcome limitations built into the original code and provide new content or gameplay tweaks. Not every developer allows users to do this, but most do.

35. If you want to use a mic while gaming with friends online but don’t want the hassle of having separate ones for your computer and console, then there are headset-mics that can easily plug into both devices ( just make sure it has enough separate inputs, otherwise you’ll have to unplug one every time you want to use the other).

36. Keep an eye on sites like Newegg if you’re looking for good deals on PC components because they tend to offer things at lower prices than some other vendors. For example, the Amazon price predictor tool [7] suggests that buying a Radeon R9 270X from Newegg along with a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard and ASRock H81 Pro BTC could save you as much as $80 over buying those parts from Amazon itself.

37. Although it can be tempting, it’s generally not a good idea to try selling your old games for cash because the resale value is pretty low compared to what you originally paid for them. You’re better off just trading them in at a video game store for credit towards another title or using an online gift card site like Gyft [8] instead since these tend to offer better value.

38. When building a gaming rig, components should be made by different brands but still compatible with each other (some motherboards have chipsets that are exclusive to certain CPU manufacturers). There typically aren’t any compatibility issues as long as everything generally uses the same socket (such as LGA 1150 for Intel processors) or are within the same series.

39. Many games that aren’t officially supported by a given version of Windows can still be made to run on it with a bit of effort, though drivers may need to be manually downloaded and your system’s hardware requirements could change a little (for example, newer versions of DirectX don’t usually work so well with older CPUs). If you’re not sure if something will work or not, then use an emulator like DosBox to check first before using more valuable resources trying to get something working that probably won’t.

40. PC parts are interchangeable between different manufacturers, but they must adhere to strict standards to ensure a given part will work properly. If the electrical components aren’t compatible, then they won’t function at all or even explode in some cases. 

41. The most common keyboard inputs for PC games are WASD for movement and letters/numbers for actions/spells (such as E, F or R). You can easily change these keybindings if you don’t like them or want more control over your character’s abilities though, so it’s not a big deal either way. 42. While desktops usually tend to be “beefier” than laptops because of better cooling systems and internal space, this isn’t always the case with gaming PCs since manufacturers typically design the latter to be portable anyway (battery life is also a consideration for laptops). If you need to move your game around a lot, then consider getting one of the aforementioned models.

42. An internet connection isn’t required to install or play single-player games on PC but it is required if you want to play online with others (either through a game’s servers or peer-to-peer) since this requires special server software and ports to be open in order for incoming connections from other players to be received by their hosts don’t all have the same form factor. If you do get a laptop, then it’s also generally a good idea to get an external keyboard and mouse too so that they’re not taking up any unnecessary space in your bag as well.

43. When purchasing PC games online from third-party stores or services (instead of the official publisher’s website), there are often discount codes available which can reduce the price even further. If you’re lucky, then there might even be some free copies available too! A quick Google search should turn these up for you .

44. While most laptops only come with one type of chipset, gaming PCs typically come with both integrated and dedicated GPUs since they offer different benefits (some chipsets support multiple displays). Having features like these could greatly increase your gaming experience depending on what you like to play.

45. While today’s CPUs are powerful and can run games well at a high resolution, they will eventually become outdated once newer models are released which require more (and faster) processing power than older ones do in order to achieve comparably the same speeds as before. Keep this in mind when investing in a new rig since it could start becoming noticeably slower over time if your requirements change due to an increase in in-game settings or display resolution. 46. When trying out older games that used software rendering APIs instead of DirectX/Vulkan, make sure you’re using good old DOSBox [9] instead of VisualBoy Advance [10] since the latter tends not to work so well with many titles from years past.

47. If your PC supports gigabit ethernet, then you should use this instead of wifi to get much faster speeds (it’s also less prone to interference from other devices). It’ll usually be the most reliable choice for online gaming too (not just LAN parties). 48. Contrary to popular belief, optical drives or “CD/DVD drives” aren’t required for playing games on PC since they can be easily added using USB adapters if needed afterwards. In fact, some computers don’t even come with any form of built-in optical support at all! This only becomes an issue if you’re trying to install a new operating system that requires an installer disc (which is unlikely anyway).

49. When purchasing a new computer case, make sure your motherboard is compatible with it (the case and the mobo should be able to fit together). Also, pay attention to which types of expansion slots your PC supports because some cases offer more than others. This becomes important if you want to install multiple graphics cards or a sound card since they can only typically be placed into specific slots on the motherboard anyway.

50. If you’re planning on overclocking your system, then remember that most processors can’t go above their stock voltage levels and many motherboards can’t handle high wattage RAM sticks either (due to insufficient power delivery features).

5. Be sure to read the warranty: Just like any other device, routers aren’t perfect and don’t last forever! So check out what kind of warranty comes with your potential new router so that if anything breaks within the first year of use, you know you’re covered.

6. Consider the size: This is more of a personal preference because many routers come in all shapes and sizes these days! Still, you may want to consider having a router that will fit with your decor instead of just getting the one that delivers the best speed or coverage right away.

7. Consider security features: Another thing to consider is what security features are important to you when it comes to a new router. Do you stream video regularly, or do you use your internet connection for your business? These may be things that matter more than whether or not the router has dual-band capabilities.

8. Consider signal strength: The quality of your connection can make a huge difference in the speed and lag time of your games, so it’s important to consider how much coverage you’ll have throughout your home. Many routers offer signal strength indicators to show you where exactly the connection is strong or weak, before buying.

9. Consider compatibility: Finally, be sure that any new router will support all devices on your network! If you have an Xbox, PS4, a PC and an iPhone, for example, you may want to consider buying one that has all of the capabilities in one.

10. Consider other perks: One final thing to look at is any extra features on your router. Many routers come with USB or SD ports so that you can easily share files and media throughout your network. They may even come with apps that let you check on signal strength, set up parental controls or connect to other networks for easy streaming.

11. Consider the extra cost: You’ll want to plan out how much money you’ll have left after paying for the router itself when figuring out what kind of features are right for you. If you want a top of the line router with all kinds of extra perks, you’ll need to be prepared for that price as well!

12. Consider what kind of games you play: Certain game genres will rely more heavily on faster connection speeds and powerful routers than others. For example, if your favourite games are online first-person shooters, you’ll want a router that prioritizes speed and security. If your games are often online multiplayer, you’ll need to ensure that the signal strength is excellent for everyone on your network!
