While every gaming victory lies in your skills and techniques, an elite PC is definitely the game-changer.

Gaming, contrary to popular belief, has not died out.

Rather, it has evolved and expanded. To be a gamer nowadays, you must have a fairly good gaming setup. The key lies in

having a high-performing PC that can boost your gaming performance. With a sufficient gaming budget, a good gaming PC can be a huge investment.. But aside from the budget, there are things you have to consider before buying your dream gaming PC. Check out this list we prepared for you.

Think about the right time to purchase

Timing is essential.

With PC models being launched almost every year in the market, the the latest models are priced at a premium. Choose a good gaming PC can last you a decade or even more to get the best value for your purchase.

Know what it can do for you

Hardcore hardware running a hardcore game is the face of PC gaming. Most top-tier competitive game’s use a gaming PC because the factors they usually consider are: accuracy, fidelity, and lag. But before you go out and buy one, think about what games you’d like to play and where you can get them for less money. Consider multi-functionality to get the most value.

Determine the PC size

Experience gaming in style.

Gaming computers are now available in a range of shapes and sizes. They vary from small systems to midsize towers to monoliths. They’re perfect for game’s who don’t have access to a large desk, or those who want to use their PC as part of a home theater setup. Going small will restrict your upgrade options in the future. Most people like mid-towers because they are a good compromise. They’re small enough to fit under, on, or in a regular desk, but big enough to allow for improvements and sufficient cooling. Monoliths are extremely simple to work with because they have enough room for everything you want to fit inside them.

Do your research and compare performance

For the smoothest frame rates, it is highly recommended to invest in either AMD’s Polaris (RX 550, 560, 570 or 580) or NVIDIA Pascal GP-U’s (GT X 1060, 1070, 1080 or 1080 Ti). However, if you are on a tighter budget, you can consider NVIDIA’s new GT X 1050 or 1050 Ti GP-U’s, both of which usually sell for under $150. If you want to harness the strength of the gods, you’ll want to look into Intel’s latest 8th-generation Core i7 processors, which can cost upwards of $350.

Check options for future upgrades

Given the current refresh cycle for motherboards, GP-U’s, storage, and RAM, you’ll need to replace a component or two at some stage. When purchasing a computer, ensure that you can quickly open it and switch out parts without the use of any tools. Consider compatibility for future upgrades.
