1. Shapes and Sizes
Most gamers will be interested in the exterior of the product. Gaming computers today come in a variety of sizes and shapes. For example, small ones like ZOTAC MAGNUS ONE ECM53060C Mini PC GeForce RTX 3060, mid-sized ones like NZXT H710i - CA-H710 i-W1 - ATX Mid Tower PC Gaming Case, and full-fledged systems like CORSAIR iCUE 7000X RGB Full-Tower ATX PC Case. Each type of machine will have its own advantages and disadvantages.
The small system would be ideal for those who don't have a large desk. It limits future upgrade options. It also doesn't include too many modern features. So it will generate noise since there is no limited cooling system.
The middle tower is a pretty perfect choice for everyone. Their size is enough to put in any table position no matter how small or large. They can be provided with mid-range cooling and upgrade capabilities. The downside is that you need to pay extra for the side panels.
And a full system will cost more than the other two. But it provides enough space for you to work. However, if you do not want it to take up too much space, you should choose a medium tower. At the same time, it has all the necessary features and complete upgrades.
2. Graphic Cards
The graphics card is an essential part you should consider. This is a major factor determining the beauty of games, frame rates, and resolutions. Note that higher-numbered cards generally have better performance.
Low-end GPUs should give you average performance when playing at 1080p. You'll need something more powerful if you want to play games at 1440p. At the moment, the Gaming PC RTX 3060Ti is the best option in the same price bracket. Those interested in 4K or 100 FPS gaming will have to invest deeper into the pocket. Because it requires higher-end Graphics Cards. For 4K, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 is the best.
The graphics card is the most important factor if you mainly play games. The higher-end cards have diminishing returns. You don't necessarily have to spend a lot on the GPU. The game must be considered before deciding on a GPU option.
The key element of a graphics card is video memory (VRAM). The two cards are the same but offer different amounts of VRAM. More VRAM doesn't have much of an impact on performance. But it allows the card to handle better features like high resolution and imaging features.
3. Cool and Quiet
The cooling feature does not affect performance. If you don't care about noise levels or overclocking components, choose products with separate coolers. Recent Intel processors do not come with a cooler. So you have to buy it included. If you don't like noise pollution. You can choose from advanced cooling systems. However, these types will be more expensive than the rest.
4. Power on
You also need to consider the power supply (PSU) for a good gaming machine. Depending on your budget, we have power supplies in a wide range of price points.
A cheap PSU is a bad PSU. It can die and take away other components. You should choose a PSU that exceeds the power required by your PC.
Standard 80 Plus PSUs are 80% power efficient at average power consumption. It uses better components to achieve this level of power. Meanwhile, the PSU 80 Plus Titanium has a power efficiency of 92%.
Modular PSUs include semi-modular and non-modular. Non-modular PSUs have cables attached to the PSU. Semi-modular PSU with essential cables included. And detachable cable for other components. You just need to plug in the cables that you use. But it is much more expensive than a non-modular PSU.
