Are you spending too much on your gaming PC?

Are you spending too much on your gaming PC?

Is there such a thing as spending too much on a gaming PC?
The answer to that question is two-fold:

  • The depth of your addiction to playing games and
  • How far, financially, are you willing to go to feed your habit

So how much is too much?

Billions of dollars are being spent worldwide on gaming PCs and all the paraphernalia linked to this armchair sport/entertainment.
And while South Africa may lag somewhat behind when it comes to keeping abreast of the pace of cyberspace advancement, our country’s gamers, too, are spending more every year on this form of entertainment.

Taking serious note of this trend the team at Computer World, an industry award-winning company, is not letting the grass grow under our feet. This fact is patently demonstrated with a kick-ass rig we recently built for a customer. Here are the specs of the machine our IT Boffins put together:

  • Core i5-8400
  • 16GB DDR4-3200
  • B360 GAMING PLUS board
  • 600w PSU
  • 120GB SSD
  • 1TB HDD
  • Masterbox Lite 5 RGB ATX case
  • RTX2070 8GB GAMING Z

Question: What does this cost?
Answer: Priceless

Which brings us back to the question of how much is too much to spend on your gaming PC?

Most gamers would agree that no cost is too much. However, these overheads must be kept in perspective with your budget. But no matter what your monetary constraints, focus on the GPU when building a gaming PC. GPUs, aka graphics processing units, are embedded into game consoles. Technically speaking, they alter and manipulate memory which accelerates image creation. The better the GPU the better the virtual gaming experience.
