What is the Best Gaming Computer for You?

Aug 2, 2008
Many people are looking for the perfect gaming computer that will work for all of their gaming needs. The most common question is, "What is the best gaming computer?" Unfortunately, there is not a straight answer for this question because the best computer for you may not be the best for someone else. Getting the best gaming computer will all depend on what you are looking for in the computer.

Finding the best gaming computer is not an easy task because there really isn't one. If you want the best gaming computer for you the best thing for you to do is have one custom built for you and your needs. There are a few things that a custom built gaming computer will need. You will need everything from high-powered graphics card and a great sound card to a monitor and speakers that can handle all the gaming.

The most common must have feature for a gaming computer is high-powered graphics; most newer games need to have higher graphics than older computers can provide. If you play a lot of games with great graphics on a computer that was not made to handle the higher graphic requirements you may as well not be playing them at all. You may notice that the game freezes for very short periods of time to let your computer catch up with the graphics. This means that you need a better computer for that type of game.

The CPU is probably the most important thing to think about when you are building the perfect gaming computer. There are two companies that are best at making supreme processors, AMD and Intel. You will find that in most computers there is either one or the other company's chips. They have both come out with extremely good processors that are made to take on the highest graphics on the market.

Now that we have talked about the CPU we also need to discuss the memory (RAM) - after all the two go hand in hand. If you do not have the support of good memory you can guarantee you will not get the best out of your CPU. The fastest RAM speed you can get is DDR2 1066MHz, however it is not recommended that you get this speed because there are not many motherboards that will support it. The best RAM to get has the speed of DDR2 800MHz. With most new motherboards you can have up to 4 GBs of RAM.

For the ultimate gaming computer you will need to have awesome graphic and sound cards. You should have at the very least a PCI-Express 512MB GDDR3 SLI that is already crossfire prepared. With the sound card you may be thinking that you really do not need one because your motherboard is already equipped. You need to have that sound card for the ultimate gaming computer. Otherwise you will not get the best sound possible.

Next are the monitor, speakers, keyboard and mouse. For a monitor, the best to have is a 21" LCD flat screen with a response time of 2ms and DVI Video input. You will need at least a 5.1 channel speaker system to match your awesome sound care, surround sound is best. The best keyboard and mouse come from Logitech; the G15 gaming keyboard and the G7 gaming mouse are excellent gaming input devices.

You will also need a good power supply and a motherboard to support all the high technology chips and hardware you got for your custom gaming computer. Don't forget you should have at least a 200GBs of hard drive space but a 250 GBS hard drive is better. You would be surprised at how much space all your games will take up.
