Introduction

A PC gaming computer is a major investment that you shouldn’t take lightly. This is a large purchase that you should research beforehand. After all, you’ll want to know what’s available and how hard you plan to push your computer. If you ever question any of these things, make sure to talk to a computer professional to see what they recommend.

Step 1

They can cost a few thousand dollars if you want a state-of-the-art setup. So determine what your budget will realistically allow you to spend. If you need a hardcore gaming powerhouse, plan on spending a minimum of $1,000. However, if you are only a casual gamer, you can get away with a cutting-edge personal computer and so spending a few thousand dollars is simply overkill. Clearly you can see here how your PC gaming habits will dictate just how much money you will need to spend here.

Step 2

Check out what the recommended system requirements are for the games that you frequently play or those that you’d like to play. This will serve as a basic benchmark for the computer that you’ll be purchasing. Use the highest minimum requirements from all of the games as your absolute base requirements for the new PC gaming computer.

Step 3

Choose what type of optical drive you need for the games that you play. Most computers come equipped with a DVD drive but some games require that you have a Blu-Ray drive in order to install and execute the game because it is faster.

Step 4

There are lots of options available for pre-built PC gaming computers. You can change them with a few small tweaks. However, you should know that you can also have a PC gaming computer custom built for you. This is great whenever the options on the pre-built PC gaming computers don’t meet the exact specifications that you require. (This is why it’s vital to make a list of requirements that you need.) In this case you’d be working with a computer professional to build the PC of your dreams. Of course, if you are proficient with computers you can even do this yourself but you should be very careful in doing so. You don’t want to let the circuit boards contact electricity because this can ruin them.

Step 5

Compare the various types of monitors that are available so that you are able to find the one that is best able to display the games that you play. Today you will find that there are a lot of different types of monitors available – everything from cathode-ray tube to liquid crystal displays. A high-definition monitor will provide you with really high quality graphic resolution while a wide screen computer monitor will offer you more of a cinematic experience during your PC gaming. It is up to you to decide what you prefer and then choose what will give you the best PC gaming experience but either way you can’t go wrong.

Tips

Make sure that all of the different parts are properly installed in and securely fastened to your computer. This is especially true for your cooling system because if your computer overheats it will either fry your motherboard or cause a fire.
