You have two basic options here, as with any other internet connectivity: wired or wireless (wi-fi). Being even half a second out of sync with others while playing can ruin a game, so it's important to minimise lag. A wired connection helps to keep speeds higher and lag to a minimum, more so than connecting via wi-fi. If you want to test your internet speed, there are many online tools to help you do so.
This case's big, tempered-glass windows on four sides will highlight the components, and it includes eye-catching fan lighting on the front. It made things more fun, and it also saved us from having to install our own lighting during a live build. (The fans and their lighting come pre-wired.) It also looked relatively easily to build in, and who doesn't want that? At $127 at this writing, this chassis is certainly pricier than necessary—if you're cutting it close, you can easily shave money off with a less expensive case. But it looks great.

Met vette verlichting, een goede microfoon en uitstekend geluid moet je nu alleen nog in je game je best doen. Dit gaat een stuk makkelijker als je de puntjes op de i hebt staan, bijvoorbeeld door je gaming muis te trakteren op een goede muismat. Dat ziet er niet alleen retestrak uit, maar geeft je ook daadwerkelijk het voordeel dat de muis het maximale uit de sensor haalt. Meer headshots? Meer headshots.
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.
After a trip to PC world, my nephew (who knows a lot more about computers than me) explained a few things to me and I was very surprised to see how much better this PC is compared to what the likes of PC world were offering. Almost double the power, more storage space, double the memory, for almost £150 less!!! You don't get the monitor like the PC World one but after checking online the screen they were offering with theirs cost only £60 on Amazon, so I could buy it separately and still save money!!!
That’s why we’ve analyzed hundreds of pro players in order to find similarities between what gear they use, what settings they like to tweak, and so on. The aim is to help people decide on what their next gear purchase should be, or what kind of settings they need to change to get a competitive edge.
