Best Gaming PC?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am currently interested in PC gaming and wondering what kind of PC laptop I should invest into gaming. I am looking at about $1000 since I won a scholarship. However, I would like to be able to do school work and working on my website as well. 🙂

Well, Firstly you say you after an gaming PC, So an desktop or laptop?  

What kind of games that you are into and what other things then just gaming. I would by the major things and then over time upgrade with updated specs. I pick an motherboard that will support future CPUs. And no matter what Have Intel 😛 Yet again ryzen has became the top of all tops this year

They already said they want a laptop. 

You may be able to get an Asus Ultrabook for around that. They do alright in my experience. However if you want something as beefy as a PC you're looking at $2000-3000. 😕

@xXInfectedXx I think that the poster was looking for a laptop instead of a desktop PC. Also, I would not recommend the list you created. Having this cooler with a locked CPU is somewhat wasted money. And the PSU - the green CX series (non M) are bad quality. You can also use PCPartPicker to find parts from multiple retailers at different prices.

If you want out of the box devices then Alienware laptops can be a good start. Xiaomi's shark series phones are also good. So they can be a good gaming devices this year. Then again I always prefer to go with the gaming custom builds.

There are quality gaming laptops on Ebay, Amazon and other online retailers for less than one thousand dollars and they are great for mobile gaming and productivity.

I think some of the time custom built options are good and some of the time you have to go for the laptops which are tested with the configuration in the pre built and customized one. That's what I have noticed.

CyberPower PC offers some very good pre-built PC options if that's what you're going for. That's the only one of the top of my head that gives you a good bang for the buck in terms of price to performance.

I have yet to see the cyberpower PCs in terms of the performance so can't really much talk about those type of the PCs. I'd say if someone on youtube has posted positive review about them in such context they can be good to check out.

Pre-builts will never compare to custom builts. Especially because some of those builds aren't going to be optimized for a specific purpose. Usually it's always better to go and make a custom build.

 

But yes, I agree with you on the laptops part. Always go for brans like Alienware with Laptops

MSI, Acer, and Asus all have quality gaming laptop offerings as well and Alienware laptops tend to be on the hefty side which is an annoyance if you carry your laptop everywhere.

Not sure of the ACER though, I have mostly seen the ACER laptops meant for the low cost office usage. And it seems like for the office users, they seem to have got the market with those low end PCs and laptops.
