  • The term "gaming computer" is used an awful lot in 2019... but is it really the appropriate term these days?

    I don't get this, because basically what u just said is that high end gpu can compensate for a very weak cpu(u said 2 thread, i suppose two cores and two threads, each), i taught that gaming aspiration is to achieve gpu bottleneck or at least achieve the balance between the two. Can somebody explain to me in what way and how for example rtx 2080ti can compensate for dunno i5 2400? I wanna see somebody trying to play Outerworlds with a weak cpu and high end gpu, lol?!

    No that is not true. Yes the line that separates these different classes off computers are a little blurry in nowadays but not every comuter can play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in a way that is fun and satisfying (above 35fps for the experienced). So yes there is a category of computers that is called gaming computers. Gaming computers should respond to certain criteria for example a nice led fullHD monitor at least 22 inches and even more important a keyboard with programmable keys and anti ghosting capabilities are very helpful when you are playing video games. Nothing of them is nessessary just elevates the experience. Its the same whith the discussion about supercars and hypercars because in nowadays supers have become very fast and powerfull and as result they all meet the older criteria to be classified as hypercars. So they were forced to change the criteria but even now the line is also very blurry. These videos are supposed to educate those that have limited knowledge to the field but what you said in this video is wrong. And yes every pc you buy can virtually play video games but when it sais it is a Gaming PC then you know that the pc will play the latest titles on medium to high settings on a logical resolution which I think we all agree we live in the era of full HD 1080p nowadays. It is a large topic. I could write pages about it but the fact remains what is said in this video is incorrect.

    I agree with the intel APU's are garbage because of the Intel graphics, intel HD 520 is the worst, you cant play Farm sim 15 at the lowest graphics settings and hit 25FPS! Also my pc is an all arounder, gaming, working, browsing, it does it all! Just Cause 3 at max graphics and runs between 40-60fps with minimal stutter at 2440x1980 or whatever the res is, it handles blender just fine but does have slow down on large files. as for the all computers are gaming computers thing, yeah nah. my dads computer runs 99% cpu util at idle, even lags playing solitaire or mahjong! now my sister is getting into pc's, so ive built mine and it looks like soon i'll be building two more!

    We definitely are not in a good spot right now. Graphics in gaming see almost absolutely no major improvements for years now yet the performance is continuously dropping with each new title, and all the hardware that is going to allow you to play these with reasonable settings and in reasonable amount of FPS have astronomical prices compared to few years back. (For example top line GPUs have more than doubled in price through last few years)

    My pc is fully custom water cooled with a 2950x and twin 1080ti's with 64gb of ram... and i built it for fun but its completely overkill in every way. i only play pubg and forza but i wanted to test my building skills.

    My step-father once said that it doesn't matter how pretty the paint job is, that what matters is what's under the hood. He also used to point out that cars increased in value whenever they were given a great paint job. In my experience, "a great paint job" is exactly what a "gaming PC" is. It might be high performance or just average, but the fact remains that most of the money you put into a "gaming PC" these days is going towards the fancy outward appearance of the computer and not the inner workings that will make or break your experience.

    So regarding that bottlenecking, if i'm running an 9700k with a evga 1070 SC (boosting up to 2ghz gpu clock) is that stupid? and how high could i go for my 9700k? (i do know about how you should allocate your money into a gaming computer, but i feelt that the 1070sc would get the job done and only bought an 9700k in order to allow me to switch up my graphics card a few times before i switch my cpu again)

    I have an Intel i7 7700 cpu without a graphics card and it's pretty decent. I can run many modern games at least at 24 fps with low to mid settings.
    Granted I'm looking to buy a gtx 1070 right now but the internal graphics chip has served me well.

    I think when people think of gaming PCs they think of everything, not just the desktop. Like, getting a mechanical keyboard, a game pad, a mouse with 10+ buttons, premium mouse pads, headsets, monitors, and so on.

    Been a console gamer since early 2000's when Halo CE came out. I never really thought PC gaming could be that much better or that it simply wasn't affordable. Recently built a super cheap ryzen 2200g PC and now I use my Xbox to put plates/drinks on whenever I'm gaming on my PC. Even with a low end build the quality of games and gameplay is vastly superior, also, I get access to steam sales, free multiplayer, humblebundle and GOG deals. I only wish that I had switched to PC earlier.

    I generally agree. I do, however, say there are still non-gaming computers, mostly the ones with Intel integrated graphics and _just_ enough processor power to run Windows and check your email. But yeah, the line between workstation and gaming machine is pretty blurred -- only really, really heavy workstation use might really warrant going into the Extreme series or Threadripper. On the other hand as well, while workstations used to suck for gaming, now the Extreme and Threadripper chips are incredible for workstation, but competent for gaming. It's all what you're looking to do, and how well you want to do it.
    Dual streaming system... I mean, I'd call it optimal, but yeah, not _necessary_.

What you were saying was no longer relevant to my life...man, that thing is a work of art...i would even consider trading my wife for it (don't tell her i said that) ....Peace to you brother.

    Jay is absolutely spot on that gaming computer is the one you game on. I have two PCs, one for gaming and one for media consumption. Neither is high end. My gaming system has a i5-4690k, GTX 970, and 16GB of RAM. My media system is a i5-4460, GTX 780Ti, and 8GB of RAM.
    That doesn't mean that my media PC isn't capable of gaming, it'd actually do a pretty damn good job as a gaming PC, but it isn't what I want to do on it.

    Computer Upgrading Question
    Hey guys, been thinking of upgrading my pc but not completely sure which needs upgrading, as I’m fairly new to pc gaming. My pc specs are:
    -Ryzen 5 2600
    -rx580 8gb
    -asus b450 m-a/csm
    -16 gb ram
    -256 ssd
    -1tb hdd
    -1080p monitor with 144 refresh rate
    I’ve been able to run recent games on 1080p with medium/high settings with 50-100 FPS depending on the game but I would want to make the most of my 144hz monitor or even try higher resolution (buying new monitor if there is a substantial difference). Should I just wait for another year or so and build a new rig? Not sure how dated my pc is but how much more time can I expect till I’d have to build a new pc altogether.
    Thank you in advance,

    Dual pc setup is still create if the games you're going to stream are early access games and have the potential to lock up your pc. With a second pc you can at least still pause the stream or talk to the stream. And running games in windowed mode sucks :D

    I recently bought a kickass gaming computer for a relatively cheap price, but while i was building it online i struggled with one question:

    How much hard drive space does one really need on their gaming PC? i was torn between the 2 TB and 3 TB hard drives, and ended up getting the 2 TB because 3 TB was insane in my eyes, but i found myself still longing for more hard drive space.
