Best Prebuilt Gaming Computer

Console gaming has been very standard and simplistic with how we play games. You buy the console, buy a controller or two, you buy the hard copy of the game, and you play. It’s very linear and not very open/customizable.

With a prebuilt gaming computer, your options on how to play your games have expanded. Do you want to play with a controller or with a mouse & keyboard? How many games do you want to store in your bigger hard drive? How sensitive do you want your precise moving mouse to move? How many buttons do you want to assign on your keyboard? How sharp and bright do you want the graphics to display on your setting? Those things are just the icing on the cake on what you can do. The customization of gaming on PC is an entirely different ball game.

I’ll admit though, the PCs you’re buying, compared to a PS4 or an Xbox One, will be inevitably 3-10 times more expensive!! However, looking at the possibilities of all the features and usage of your PC, and not to mention the access of STEAM, VALVE and ORIGIN (online gaming stores that provides tens of thousands of games to buy and download into your hard drive), you’re getting what you’re paying for.

During my high school years, I would hear stories that having your own prebuilt gaming computer requires a lot of money, which I didn’t have and, still to this day I don’t. But the payoff is exquisite with smoother frame rates than consoles and better games PC offers. I’m not a computer tech so I prefer buying a prebuilt computer.

The recommendations I’ve made on this list wasn’t an easy one. There were many worthy brand names with great performances and the price range were all spread out. I had to consider all these factors since PC gaming has really taken off this decade, and I’m sure there are some good PC computers out there that I haven’t mentioned on this list. But after hours of researching, I’ve compiled this list to provide what I think is the best prebuilt computers for your gaming man cave. Here it is!

CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme GXIVR8060A5 Desktop Gaming PC

LOOK AT THIS THING!! It looks like a mini PC power plant that is running some intricate powerful processor. It just looks stunning. If you have this in your man cave and people sees this, it’ll be the main exhibit in your room. The question is does its look match the performance? I think it does with flying colors!

This prebuilt gaming computer runs with an Intel Core i5 8400 with 2.8GHz. It has a 3 GB Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060, which is in the mid-range of choices in graphic cards, so not bad. Having a 8 GB DDR4 RAM isn’t too bad either since a lot of data needs to be processed with the games these days (you can add another 8 GB Memory card if you like to make the gaming more smoother). Like with almost every desktop gaming computer, it comes with a huge 1 TB HDD to store all your awesome games and software, plus an 120 GB SSD. It runs with Windows 10.

With all that being said, what does this actually mean in terms of the games you can play?  People are raving how powerful it is running AAA titles games like Forza Horizon, GTA V, The Witcher III, Destiny 2 and Fortnite! But with games like PUBG, you might want to set the settings to medium to make your gameplay really smooth. 

But don’t let that hold you back from getting this prebuilt gaming computer. For the fantastic specs and the fantastic look for around $900, this is an absolute deal! For this generation of games and the specs this computer has to offer, this PC will last you for a while. Go get this PC if you want great quality for a great price!!

30 Pounds
25 x 12.5 x 21.38 inches
Keyboard and Mouse included! 🙂

Kicking up things a notch is this impressive piece of technology! The iBUYPOWER brand is known for partnering with eSport to host their products for use in gaming tournaments! They’ve hosted in public universities and arenas to provide eSport sponsorships. That is saying something! Their latest next generation processor and graphics card makes gaming smooth and visually stunning with its maximum gaming performance!

It uses the 8th Gen. Intel Core i7 8700K six core processor, making this more faster and fluid than the 7th Gen. Intel Core. When it comes to graphics, this Geforce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card gives clarity and clear visuals to the most graphic intense games out there. It has a 16 GB RAM that’ll put the computer to work with the memory! And as usual, it has a 1TB Hard Drive and it runs on Windows 10. It comes with 16 RGB LED lights on the glass panel of your choosing.

The one thing that this prebuilt gaming computerhas, that few prebuilt desktops don’t have, is liquid cooling. It cools specific system components to a greater degree than if were you to use fans, which also takes up a ton of space. Water cooling requires only tubing inside your PC and some kind of radiator. The fact that the computer requires a liquid cooling automatically states that you’re dealing with a some powerful hardware that takes liquid cooling to function.

So comparing the specs to the CYBERPOWER PC, it runs a more powerful processor, it has twice the Gigs of RAM memory and graphics and its brand name has a high reputation. With this desktop computer selling for $1400, which can be a little pricey, it does deliver and out-perform the high brand names like Dell’s Alienware. You can run games to its maximum setting like Star Citizen, PUBG, Star Wars Battlefront 2, and Battlefield One; just to name a few graphic intense games.

I can rant on to say what a great gaming PC this is, but I don’t want to waste your time. Go out and buy this PC if you want to splurge some money into a powerful system!

ORIGIN PC

best prebuilt gaming computer 3

I could not have a list without this aggressive beastly built PC!! ORIGIN PC is made to be customizable to the people when they buy it. Founded by 3 gaming PC specialists, they make sure your PC is a perfect fit for you, literally! They strategically and carefully thought out every single aspect of PC customization available; from simple small desktop with full power, to full on “The Sky is the Limit” desktop. 

You have four choices of what kind of desktop you want to build; CHRONOS, NEURON, MILLENNIUM and GENESIS. Chronos is the small built PC but still very powerful. You can have up to 32 GB of Memory, put any type of standard graphics card inside, have the latest Intel Core i7 or AMD Processor and comes with 6 SSD/HDD slots to store more data in your hard drive! For their smallest choice, that is crazy!! Imagine what the other bigger choices are!

The Neuron supports 2 PCI Card Slots, which can be used to put more graphics cards  into it, making it twice as powerfully visual. It supports up to 64 GB of Memory and has 4 SSD and 2 HDD slots to store more games. You can choose up to the 9th generation of Intel Core i8.

The Millennium and the Genesis set up is just crazy and insane to a point where I don’t know what are the special components and why they need them. Plus, I can’t go through everything here in this list. I only know it has 4 PCI Card Slots to put 4 graphics cards to keep up with this and next generation’s games. This thing can support up to the Intel Core i9 processor and the memory is just crazy!

You’re gonna need an EXORBITANT amount of dollars for this!!

However, be warned! You’ll be spending A LOT of money on this type of prebuilt gaming computer. You are looking to spend at least $3000 on the in depth customization of your computer, since it involves the engineers using powerful hardware and building the computer specifically for you. But the payoff is worth it, since the hardware will last you for years to come. It is a great service from ORIGINS but comes at a GREAT price.
