Some of the best gaming computers that have become tops in many gaming reviews are under a grand, a great bargain if you are on a tight budget under $1,000. Surprisingly, a couple of these good gaming computers are actually laptops.
It is true that shopping for a really fast gaming PC can be really pricey. If you are someone who is after computer gaming for internet cafes or top-notch tournaments, then you are probably eyeing those magnificent two grand machines. However, if you just want to play online, uploaded, or installed games, then these less than a grand PC’s should do the trick.
You love gaming so much that you do not care about those fancy casing paint-jobs, the liquid cooling systems, and the overclocked processors. Of course, you are not playing games to make heads turn at a LAN party. Gaming is gaming.
Then again, even if the machine is under $1,000, you still need to fulfill a few specific features. First and most important, you want a powerful processor. Remember that the processor is the heart and beat (lub-dub, lub-dub) of all good gaming computers. A good and fast processor means speedy performance, realistic in-game physics, and minimal lag time. Intel or AMD have pretty fast current dual / quad core processors. Pair these up with a healthy 4GB RAM and you are good to go. However, you will find many desktops and laptops starting out with 6-8GB and going as high as 16GB, more than fast enough for any games online or installed.
The next thing you need tops is the graphic card. Graphic processors are designed for the sole objective of making good looking games look spectacular. High-end to modest graphic cards from Nvidia or AMD will give off higher frame rates and smoother graphics. Get a decent gaming monitor and you will have one key benefit that gaming consoles cannot match – resolution that can beat or is better than even the 1080p picture on your television.
