What games do I play?

There are a lot of different games out there that require various levels of hardware. The good news is that we can custom build a gaming PC tailored to these needs. If you're just playing browser games or retro games on your computer, you won’t need a multi-GPU setup with the beefiest processors! However, if you want to play the latest hardcore first person shooter with all of its 3D effects and settings maxed, that's another story. To fully enjoy a demanding PC game, you will need a top-of-the-line 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 games, play well on a wide range of hardware, while the most ambitious games require higher performance hardware. At Maingear, we can help you build the best gaming PC for your current and future needs.

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(s) you want to game on. For instance, most games play great at 1920x1080 1080P resolution but if you're going to be playing on a 30" monitor at 3840 X 2160 Ultra HD 4k resolution or across multiple monitors, you'll need a higher performance video card - possibly more than one. In fact, 30" gaming at 4k resolutions are in the realm of requiring multiple video cards and a high performance gaming computer. This is where you want to seriously consider top gaming computer options like dual, triple or quad graphics solutions; otherwise you'll be disappointed with the frame rates and overall performance. We suggest you give us a call if you're looking at gaming at higher resolutions or across multiple monitors, so 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 in your gaming PC. If you only have 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, which can hinder 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 gaming computer 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 (8GB 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. To help you out with all of these nuances, we have the expertise needed to help build you the best gaming PC tailored to your budget and your gaming preferences.
