Nov/Dec 2020. Best Christmas Gifts 2020: Gaming Desktops. When looking for a good Christmas gift look no further: a gaming desktop will be very much appreciated! We review and recommend gaming desktops in the affordable, mid- and high end budget range. When you want to buy a new Gaming Desktop you want specs like at least a quad-core processor (for example: Intel I5 or I7 or A6, A8 or A10 or higher), fast hard-drives like a SSD for the operating system and a big HDD with 1 or 2 TB for storage and plenty of DDR4 RAM. You also want to see reliable sound and graphics cards so that gaming and heavy duty graphic programs can run smoothly, as well as playing HD movies.
The best Gaming PC brands today are Dell, HP, iBUYPOWER, SKY tech, OMEN, ROG and CYBERPOWER.
What performance can you expect from a gaming desktop computer?
The speed of a gaming desktop depends on the quality of the central processing unit (CPU), single core, dual core, quad core etc, the available RAM (more internal memory is better: gaming desktops should have at least 4 GB). Besides the CPU the type of harddisk your OS runs on makes a big difference: a SSD is more expensive but much faster than a regular HDD. Today you almost don’t see single core cpu’s anymore. 2 or 4 cores is usual in regular desktops, at least 4 or more in gaming systems. When running programs or games that use a lot of graphic processing like high speed games on higher settings the quality of the graphics processing unit (GPU)is crucial. The newest Intel i3/i5/i7 cpu’s are the 9th gen cpus that perform better and have better power efficiency.
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 cost about twice as much compared to the AMD processors. Therefore, for about the same price as a 4 core intel CPU you can get a gaming rig with a 6 or more core AMD CPU or you can buy one with a better GPU.
Newer Gaming desktops mostly have the newest DDR4 RAM which is faster and more power efficient. This can give you a massive gain in frame rate on higher settings.
Separate or integrated GPU?
Cheaper gaming Desktops with a CPU like the I5 or the AMD A6 and A8 have integrated Graphics in the CPU. You don’t need a separate graphics-card because it is build in, but in gaming those build in gpus give only average performance on low to medium settings. For more serious gaming than casual gaming you want to have the CPU and a separate graphics-card doing its own task. This is a bit more expensive but greatly improves the frame-rate and visuals on higher settings.

Best budget/ affordable gaming Desktop 2020: Dell Inspiron Gaming PC Desktop AMD Ryzen 7 2700
The best gaming desktop at the moment in my opinion is the Dell Inspiron Gaming PC Desktop with AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Processor, 16GB DRAM, 1TB HDD, AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB GDDR5 Graphics Card, Windows 10 64-bit, Blue LED with Keyboard and Mouse.
This is in my opinion the best budget gaming rig because it has the combination of the newest 4.1 GHz AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Processor with 4 cores, together with the very fast 16 GB DDR4 memory. An AMD CPU always needs a lot of RAM for optimal performance and 16 GB is more than enough for any demanding graphics program or game at higher settings. OS: Windows 10. Because it is a budget gaming pc it doesn’t have a SSD but the latest High capacity, High speed 1TB 7200 Rpm SATA drive. This gives you more than enough storage space for a lot of games. Graphics card: Amd Radeon RX580 Graphics with 4GB GDDR5
You can get all this for a very, very good price under $700 at the time of writing this post. When looking at price-quality and value for money this Dell gaming desktop is my choice for ‘best gaming pc 2019’. It is also one of the best selling desktops on Amazon at the time of writing.
Best mid range gaming Desktops
Gaming PCs in the medium price range cost between $800 and $2000. They have better CPUs, better graphic cards and mostly SSD harddrives for faster performance with added HDD for storage.
Best high end gaming Desktop
High end gaming rigs are pricy but you get the best performance, graphic cards and therefore the highest fps on the highest settings in any of the graphic intensive games today.High end gaming PCs feature liquid cooling, Intel I9 and comparable CPUs like the Intel Core i9-9900K Eight Core Processor (16MB Cache, 3.6GHz-5.0GHz) 95W w/ Liquid Cooling, up to 32GB DDR4 3000MHz RAM and 1TB NVMe Solid State Drives
