Some viewers also thought we should have installed components onto the motherboard before screwing it into the tower. We have done that in the past, but it's not usually necessary—this case provides plenty of room to maneuver inside, so it wasn't difficult to install the memory, the CPU, and the cooler while the board was already inside in the chassis. In my opinion, it also helps give a better idea of cabling if everything is already in the case.
We can pretty much imagine that every gamer’s dream is to have a powerful computer to play all current games at maximum settings. Because of this, many people choose to make their own setups and include only the best parts available on the market. But besides the functional part, there is also an esthetic one meaning that there is more to a fine PC setup than just a strong graphics card and a wide monitor. There are some gaming setups that are so impressive that they deserve global recognition and this is why, in today’s video, we are going to unveil some of the most elaborate PC setups. The emphasis is put on the originality of the projects presented rather than the state of the art system specifications.
Every gamer is faced with a choice: PC, console, or both. Arguing about which one is better is the kind of debate that lights up message boards – which one is less expensive, has the best visuals, or has the best multiplayer competition? If you’re trying to decide between purchasing a console or gaming PC, we’ll break down each part of the PC vs. console debate to help you decide what’s best for you.
All told, at the time we purchased these items, the build cost $1,022.62, but that fell to $992 after rebates. Prices will fluctuate, of course, with sales and availability, but we were able to just about hit our target. If these components become too pricey in the future, you'll no doubt be able to find similarly priced alternatives to put together a comparable machine.

Ghost Gaming is a newly founded organization that was created in early 2017. The first game the organization struck into happened to be Gears of War 4. The first Ghost Gaming squad consisted of GODPLAYS, Sleepytime, Phenomxnon, RushieZ, and KeeM. After a 3rd Place finish at the Gears Pro Circuit Mexico City Open, the roster went through a few changes. Dropping Phenomxnon for Drix and GODPLAYS departing to join eUnited, the new roster has solidified themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
In the battle of console vs. PC, many gamers are starting to migrate away from consoles to gaming laptops and desktops. The reasons for this are many. The side that people chose in the PC vs. console gaming debate used to be dictated in part by the game titles that most interested them. In the market's infancy, many titles were exclusively offered on one platform or the other – not both.
Generally, PC gamers need to have more technical skills than console gamers. Although it is possible to modify a console by adding new hardware, it’s not necessary. Console gamers do need to be able to install the sequel or update of their games. PC gamers need at least a minimal level of technical skills, even if they purchased a pre-built gaming computer. And by technical skills, we don’t mean the ability to write HTML code, but the ability to set up a computer with a general concept of how it operates. A PC gamer might also want upgrade hardware components and install new drivers for those components, which calls for an intermediate skill level.
If your game of choice entails consistent communication with a team or you’re one that likes to chat (nicely, we’re assuming!) with your live opponent, the HyperX Cloud comes with a detachable and adjustable high-quality microphone on top of it all. This is a headset that is HiFi capable and will allow you to enjoy optimal audio and pitch perfect tones so that you can exit reality and lose yourself in the moment and hear those footsteps that much clearer. All things considered, the Kingston HyperX Cloud comes at a reasonable price, and is great for PC and Mac as well as compatible with just about every console you can think of.
I realize that statement was either probably made because you just don't know, but you can do all of these with a gaming rig. I am no PC-only fanboy; I own a PS4, XBone, and Switch. Interestingly enough, I was gaming on my sofa from my PC (on Steam)with a lapboard using my 50" plasma last night (as I do much of the time). The lapboard has USB ports, so I can use my PS4 controller (or Switch, or whichever) to game, and many PC games are compatible with controllers at this point. I prefer a kbm on most games, but games like Yakuza 0 (oops, not just a PS4 exclusive anymore) are good with a controller.
Though the title may not be something I can get behind (I know, I know, my name is attached to it, but hey, I gotta pay bills and this is only minor-league soul-selling), there is some truth in it. I recently penned a piece detailing how ditching consoles for a gaming PC improved my life, a far more nuanced approach to the same topic. Now, with a corporate gun to my head, I'm going to smash the metaphorical big, red button and launch this savage take.

It is a battle as old as time itself, which console is better? Everyone has their favourite, just like in the Apple V Android debate. There are many different reasons to like each side. Each have exclusive titles to the platform, different features, and different specs. Some stick with one system over another out of loyalty while others heavily weigh the options on both consoles. Lets compare the specs to see what the real difference is. If you aren't interested in the nitty gritty, tech heavy details, then you might want to skip this bit. With the latest release of the Xbox One X, both platforms are almost neck and neck in technical specifications as shown below.
