If you’re looking to get a new gaming PC as a gift, or for yourself this christmas, I’ve narrowed it down to 3 simple choices, all at different price points, that are good for running different things. I’ve been a PC gamer for over 15 years, as well as an “IT Wizard”, so I’m used to building computers, and know the ins and outs of what your computer needs to have to run the latest games. After a few years, when it comes time to upgrade something, I can help you to choose the parts to upgrade too, and even help you with the installation process. If you’d like something different, and you know what you want, get in touch and I’ll be able to advise you.
At £500 this budget system is capable of running eSports titles like Fortnite, League of Legends, and CS:GO at a high frame rate, and is capable of running most games at a minimum of 720p resolution. It also provides a simple upgrade path in the future, with the easy addition of a dedicated grapics card.
At £1000, this mid-range system is capable of playing all of the latest games at 1080p or even 1440p resolutions, at a minimum of 60 FPS. It’s equiped with the latest series of AMD Ryzen CPUs, allowing it to be used for lighter creative loads like basic photo and video editing too.
For £1500 you can get this incredibly poweful system, which is equipped with a large 4TB hard drive, and a super fast 512GB Samsung NVMe SSD. You’ll also be able to game at high frame rates (120+ FPS) at 1080p and 1440p with ease, and even some games at 4k 60 FPS. If you want to stream your games or post videos of your gaming sessions, this is an ideal system for that.
