what games do i want to play?
There are a lot of different games out there that require varying levels of hardware. The good news is that we can custom build a custom gaming PC tailored to these needs. If you're just playing Farmville on Facebook, you don't need a three-way video card solution or the ultimate gaming rig! However, if you want to play the latest hardcore first person shooter with all 3D effects maxed, that's another story. To fully enjoy a demanding PC game, you’ll need a top gaming computer. It will vary from game to game, but we can help you build the best gaming computer based on the games you like to play. Some game franchises like Call of Duty play well on a wide range of hardware, while others like Crysis 2 don't. Furthermore, some of the most popular games like Left 4 Dead 2 are based on older 3D game engines that play extremely well on mainstream hardware, but need more power the higher the resolution you play. Which brings us to the next question:
WHAT SIZE MONITOR DO I WANT TO GAME ON?Once you know the type of gamer you are, the next most important question is what size monitor you want to game on. For instance, Resident Evil 5 plays great at 1280x1024 resolution on a 512MB ATI Radeon HD 5750 - but if you're going to be playing on a 30" monitor at 2560x1600, you'll be very disappointed. In fact, 30" gaming at XHD resolutions are the realm of multiple video cards and high performance gaming computers. This is where you want to seriously consider top gaming computer options like dual and triple-graphics solutions; otherwise you'll be disappointed with the frame rates. We suggest you give us a call if you're looking at gaming at higher resolutions, as we can make sure you're spending your money wisely. Remember, we're not on commission, and we want to make sure you're satisfied with your new custom gaming PC.
what is my budget?This is where we excel - making sure you get the best bang for your buck. If you've only got a budget of $2000 for your new custom gaming pc, we have to make sure you're getting the right balance of CPU, Memory, and GPU performance - too much of any one of those three will make you compromise on the others thereby hindering the performance of your custom gaming pc! Sometimes it's good to take a step back from that latest and greatest CPU so you can spend more money on the GPU - and you definitely don't want your custom gaming PC to choke on too little RAM. If you're going to be playing at higher resolutions, you'll be GPU bound. That means your GPU will be stressed more than your CPU - and a faster CPU will be idle waiting for your GPU to finish what it's doing. In this case it's better to drop down that CPU and spend more money on a GPU. Furthermore, if you're not getting enough RAM (4GB is a minimum these days - and goes up depending on your computing style) your custom gaming PC will have to use the page file on your hard drive, significantly decreasing performance as textures and game data have to be cached on the slower hard drive instead of read from the much faster system memory. We have the expertise to build you the ultimate gaming rig tailored to your budget and your gaming preferences.
