Gaming Desktop Computers
Gaming computers have high-end graphics cards, processors and more than enough RAM – all the components needed to enhance your gaming experience. When you're considering a gaming computer, carefully evaluate your needs. Most manufacturers provide individual customization, so you can get a desktop that will fit your gaming style and budget. Below is the criteria TopTenREVIEWS used to evaluate gaming computers. A game is only as good as the video card supporting it. Many games have life-like, real-time images that require a powerful video card. ATI and NVIDIA graphics cards are the most common amongst gamers, and at least 1GB of proprietary video RAM will get the job done for most high-end games. A gaming computer sound card, integrated or not, is capable of reproducing 5.1 or 7.1 channels of sound, so you will be able to tell where your enemies are located. A fast CPU, or processor, will aid the video card in drawing billions of polygons per second in first-person shooters and MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role-playing games) alike. The best systems will include a powerful quad-core or six-core processor.
