There are people that use computers and then there are gamers. What sets the two groups apart is that a gamer needs a computer with incredibly high specifications in order to play the latest titles in PC games.
Consumers spent $23.5 billion on the gaming industry in 2015. $16.5 billion was spent on gaming content alone. – Entertainment Software Association
What to consider in a Gaming Computer
- RAM Requirements – In 2017, the average minimum RAM requirements to play the latest video game titles is 8GB, while the recommended RAM is usually twice that amount.
- Hard Disk Storage – There are many video games in 2017 that occupy more than 50GB of storage space due to the higher resolution graphics textures and programming.
- FAST Hard Disks – The older SATA hard drives are nowhere near as fast as solid state technologies (SSD). Simply switching to an SSD can make a world of difference that decreases load times.
- CPU Speed – Most games now require at least an Intel i5 dual core CPU. A good gaming computer will have nothing less.
- Monitor size and refresh rate – When you’re playing games, your monitor’s refresh rate could affect whether or not gameplay is smooth and seamless or choppy.
- Video Card(s) – This is the main component in any gaming computer. The new GeForce GTX 10 series was launched in 2016 and has compatibility with games dubbed with “next generation” graphics.
