Gaming desktops are always huge investments. This is why it is so important to make the right choice from the start. Unfortunately, most people just buy a PC that is labeled as being built for gaming and that suits personal budget. Not much extra thought is put into the choice.

Remember that when you buy something for gaming you need to consider all options so you choose what is best for you. This includes everything from gaming keyboards to the actual desktop PC. If you want to buy the best desktop gaming PC for you, here are very important facts to take into account.

The Processor

 It does not matter if you buy the desktop PC pre-configured by the seller or you create it yourself. The very first thing that you need to look at is the CPU. This is because the processor is what will determine software performance.

The first choice is between 2-, 4- or more core processors. You need to go for at least 6. If the budget is higher, opt for even more. Based on the games you want to play, it is possible that the 4-core processor is enough but many of the modern games will want a lot more.

In the event that your budget is high, you need to go for the “more cores” option. They are priced really high and will be a very serious investment. There are even customization options that give you access to eighteen cores, like the Intel Core i9-7980XE. However, this CPU costs almost $2,000.

When talking about the manufacturer, Intel is usually the best choice and the preferred one for most gamers. AMD is definitely really competitive when it comes to the price tag but the single-thread performance is definitely not as great as it should be. Intel’s chips should always be chosen as they are a whole lot better.

You Need Really Good GPUs

Always stay away from the low-end video cards. This is usually seen in the number that is next to the card. When you buy an Nvidia GPU, the lower the number, the lower the performance you will get. When the budget is limited, you want to use the budget options. However, as time passes, it is really important to save some money and get a better GPU.

If we are to look at AMD, do not consider the Ati Radeon RX series. The RX Series became a much better option in the year 2017. Newer and better alternatives also exist. The great thing about AMD is that it offers really good gaming video cards for practically all budgets. Just as with Nvidia, look at the model number to see how much performance you will put your hands on.

When you want to put your hands on the best possible performance for the money that you pay, opt for the mid-range video cards.

No matter what desktop PC you buy, be sure that you opt for the best possible CPU and GPU that your budget affords. You will not regret this choice.
