Gaming PC Differences

People who play games a lot on their computer are extreme gamers. Their ultimate goal for using the computer is just to play games, so a typical at home PC doesn't work for their everyday gaming. A dedicated Gaming PC is necessary to keep up with the requirements of your games. Lets see how much different Gaming Computers are from standard PCs.

Video Cards are the heart of a Gaming PC, without a good video card, you don't have a gaming computer. ATI and NVIDIA make the best gaming computers with good GPUs. A good video card will eliminate choppy graphics or lagging video on your computer. Memory is also essential for a good gaming PC, at higher resolutions the demand for memory is even more important. A faster processor, could mean faster game loading times. And don't forgot other components such as a good monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Customized Gaming Computers

A customized gaming computer doesn't have to cost a pretty penny. Just people on forums and do your research online. See what other people run on their systems that play the same game that you do. If their system performs well you can order a gaming PC with similar specs as the one that they use.

Gaming System Requirements

Every game has a recommended system requirements and a minimum system requirements. Instead of wasting money on more capacity memory or hard drive space then what you need, check to see what your came requires. Check the games that you often play or plan to play. You can also determine the processor or other components that you may want to put into the system for the ultimate customization.

Building Your Own Gaming Computer

Gaming computers can be built at home, but with the manufactures out these days, its probably better to buy an already built gaming computer and customize it with the components of your choice. When you buy a gaming computer, you can be backed up with a full warranty just in case something goes wrong. What if your cooling system fails to respond, and your processor blows. That would be a costly mistake if you didn't attach something properly in your homebuilt computer.

Intensive Cooling Systems

A system with 3 GPUs requires at least two loops to the cooling system. Running everything in a series loop would be ridiculous. Each heat generating source would heat up the liquid so much and running that from one GPU to the next doesn't really do a good job at cooling. This system shown in the video has more than one loop and does a great job at cooling this gaming PC.

Gaming Computers – Saving a Buck or Two

You can save a buck or two when ordering a gaming PC, by customizing it and choosing the components of your choice. Start with a high end video card, thats where you should put in most of your money. You can save money on hard disk space if you don't require much. Memory you can cut back on, and save your money until more comes in, then you can invest more in memory later down the road to complete a nice new upgrade. In the end you will have the best gaming PC ever made.

Gaming Monitors

No game is well played without a high resolution monitor. Certain games may only play at certain resolutions. Your video card may lag at higher resolutions too, and using an LCD monitor at a resolution that its not native to won't produce a clear crisp image. Take this information into account when deciding on a gaming monitor.

Online Game Research

Ask friends and family what the specifications are on their gaming computers. The best thing is to check with the people that play the same game or games that you plan to play so that you know what the requirements are on their systems. Ask them how well the game performs on their system then you can use such and such amount of memory, hard drive space, etc to make the game perform well on your new system. You can then save a bit on certain computer parts.

Gaming Laptop or Gaming PC

I say you settle for regular gaming computers. Gaming Laptops are however portable, but making upgrades and quick changes is not really as easy as easy. Plus a massive shiny glowing CPU case, and a large widescreen monitor setup is much more enjoyable then a small TFT display on a laptop. A large gaming PC, your free to upgrade to a new keyboard or mouse at anytime. However with a gaming laptop you're stuck to use the one on your laptop. While you can attach a keyboard and mouse as an external device, it doesn't make much sense since you could have just bought a desktop in the first place.
