When it comes to renting a new gaming computer, there are usually three different options: you can build it yourself, buy one from a store shelf (including Amazon) or go to a manufacturer’s website like PCbuilder.net to configure your dream system.
And now, when it is so difficult to intend computer components at reasonable prices, especially graphics cards, more and more people are always turning to pre-built computer games. However, there are many pitfalls that can mean you can spend a lot of extra money without having to spend a fortune on it.
Depending on your budget and graphics requirements, the minimum threshold can vary widely. To run applications at maximum settings and resolutions up to 1920 × 1080 (a huge role is played by the type of games that will be launched), you may need to stock up on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB or its equivalent AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB. If you’re going to play at higher resolutions, you’ll need an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB or AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB adapter to achieve a comfortable frame rate (minimum values of 40-45 FPS). For 4K / VR content, be sure to equip yourself with the best, like a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080.
Motherboard is a component that can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, any motherboard with two memory slots, one PCI-Express x16 and at least 3-4 SATA ports would do the job. But come to think of it – what opportunities does it offer to upgrade? The answer is almost none. Therefore, it is desirable to have a plan of what additional components you would install in the future. We will not list specific models here, as each manufacturer has a fairly large range of products.
RAM is one of the three most important ingredients for smooth gameplay. This is where all the data for a game is loaded after it is started (along with the graphics memory). The absolute minimum to be installed is 8GB. The type of memory is almost irrelevant (as long as it is at least DDR3), in most cases this also applies to speeds, as the prices of more expensive modules do not always justify the increase in performance.
It is extremely important to consider how powerful a unit you need. It is desirable that the total approximate consumption of the entire system does not come close to the power supply. For example, if you have 360W total consumption, you need to buy a power supply with a rating of at least 450-500W.
Box – A component whose role should not be neglected. However, this is where all the other parts will be installed – it should be spacious enough and well cooled. It is recommended to have at least two fans installed – one at the front to introduce fresh air and one at the back to remove the heat generated by the computing chips.
