For online gamers, it could always be an overwhelming affair to buy good gaming. There are many configuration options to take care of along with the ergonomics aspects to get one that doesn’t suck. Along with raw horsepower, you need to take care of the storage, upgradability, provision for add-on cards etc. Most of the people are bothered about the hardware and may also know about it, so let’s have a quick look into the other key aspects to consider while buying a gaming PC.

Exteriors of a good gaming PC

Nowadays, gaming PCs come in various sizes and shapes. There are compact systems like the Falcon Northwest Tiki and medium-size tower shaped as Predator G1 by Acer. Those who look for monolith structure can consider options like Origin Millennium.

• Small systems are ideal for those who don’t have a large desk or if you want to integrate it with a home theatre.

• Mid-size tower PCs are the choice of most of the gamers, which are small enough to fit compact space, but also with decent upgradability and cooling features.

• Monoliths or full towers tend to be large which needs a bigger desk but are easy to upgrade and can handle add-on hardware which may not fit well into the smaller variants.


While buying a gaming PC pre-made or customized, the processor is the first specification to note. It’s the processor which determines what performance you get out of your machine. Now, you can choose between two-core, four-core, and six-core processors. If you are not on a very stringent budget, then getting a six-core is the best recommendation (usually costs $600 or more). Now, you can even get eight-core processors which ensure optimum performance with the modern-day games.

Along with the above, consider the memory capacity, graphic card specifications, RAM capacity, hard drive, as well as a specific gaming keyboard and mouse specs etc. while considering a super-performer gaming PC for your needs.
