Some high-end enthusiasts may insist on a Core i7, but you truly don't need one for gaming, as most games don't stress the Hyper-Threading function that makes Core i7 models so appealing for other CPU-intensive tasks. Even a Core i3 would suffice for most builders, but since it's the heart of the system for gaming and also for everyday tasks, we figured we'd be grateful for the extra juice. Note that this isn't one of Intel's "K" series processors, meaning it is not unlocked for overclocking, which is fine; doing so is unnecessary most of the time for gaming. It also lets us save money on other components, such as the next one.
It doesn't matter if you have 1, 2, or 3 screens, there is a monitor mount perfect for your situation. Not to mention you'll gain back desk space for your peripherals, like your new keyboard & mousepad. Monitor mounts attach to your desk via a wobble-free clamp or onto your wall, it is one of the easiest ways to upgrade your gaming setup. With cable managment and nearly unlimited adjustments, it'll put a professional finish on your rig.
The only thing that we didn’t like about the setup are the 2 ultrawide monitors. Gaming with only 2 monitors is just inconvenient because of the bezels. Moreover, there are some issues with having only ultrawide monitors (which we have discussed in some of the above builds that feature ultrawide monitors). One Ultrawide is great, but we wouldn’t be opposed to swapping it out for 2 smaller 16:9 monitors. Of course, this might increase the overall build cost unless you’re going for 1080p monitors.
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.
