Factors that determine the performance of a desktop computer

The speed of a desktop is mainly dependent on the quality of the CPU, how many CPU`s (single core, dual core, quad core), the available MEM (more internal memory is better, today desktops should have at least 4 GB) and the harddisk (SSD is much faster than regular HDD). When running programs or games that use a lot of graphic processing the quality of the video-card is very important.

Intel vs AMD

When choosing a desktop computer the CPU is an important factor to consider. The CPU is the heart of the system. There are two main processor manufacturers namely Intel and AMD. The intel processors tend to perform slightly better but are about twice as expensive compared to the AMD processors.

What Speed Do You Need?

The i3 Intel series and its equivalent AMD processors are used in low end desktops for usual computer tasks like surfing the web, email and administrative tasks. These are the cheapest Intel processors with the lowest processing power. The Intel i5 series and equivalent AMD processors have better performance and can be used for light/medium gaming and medium video editing/ graphical programs. the i7 Intel processors and equivalent AMD processors are the most expensive but get you the most processing power, the best gaming experience and the best basis for heavy graphical programs and video editing.




Best Christmas Desktops: Acer Aspire Desktop, Intel Core i7-12700F 12-Core, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super, 16GB DDR4, 512GB SSD/1TB HDD

The best Desktop for the money at the moment is in my opinion the Acer Aspire Desktop, with 12th Gen Intel Core i7-12700F.

This desktop has the combination of the 12th Generation power efficient Intel i7 12700F processor together with the newest very fast 16Gb DDR4 Memory. It is the latest Intel version and has a very good price/quality compared with the older 11th gen Intel processor. A big increase in performance of the Intel Core series was expected in the next 12th gen processors and the results are indeed impressive. The Intel I7-12700 has a Turbo Boost up to 4.9 GHz and 16 Gb DDR 4 3200 MHz RAM is more than enough for any demanding graphics program. For serious gaming you get the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super Graphics with 6GB GDDR6 Video Memory tht will let you play most games at higher settings. The RAM is up-gradable to 32 Gb if needed. OS: Windows 11. It has a 512 Gb SSD which gives a fast boot and reaction times and the extra 1TB HDD gives you more than enough storage space for all your data. It comes with a keyboard and mouse.

Price/Quality
Price (at time of writing this post): around $1200 but this could have changed in the meantime. When I look at price-quality and value for money this ACER tower desktop is still my choice for ‘best desktop 2022’. It is also one of the best selling desktops on Amazon at the time of writing.

Christmas Tower Desktops: overview


Best Christmas Gaming Desktops

Gaming desktops are high-end desktops and are more expensive than normal desktops. This is because they have a better cpu, more/ faster RAM and a much better, almost always separate, video card than regular desktops, which are needed for fast game-play, high fps and excellent graphics in high demanding games.


Best Cheap Desktops (around $300)

When you just want a pc to email, internet/ social media, watch an occasional movie or do some text editing or light gaming (no MMORPG) then, a cheaper computer is the best choice. The specs are not as good as the more expensive desktops have, so don`t expect the fastest performance. If speed and specs are not the most important then the following recommendations are everything you need for a good price.

A very interesting choice is the LG Chromebase. It is based on Google Chrome and it boots in seconds. All Google apps like Gmail/ youtube/ docs etc run in the Chrome environment so you dont have to worry about updates, virus protection etc. It has a 16 Gb SSD for fast performance despite the 1.4 GHz processor for an appealing price. A good family desktop.
