Why is now the best time to buy your gaming PC?

Thanks to the rise of cryptocurrency bringing high demand for PC hardware with inflated prices. So it might be time to think strategically, why not buy a Custom Gaming PC?

What should I look for, and what mistakes should I avoid?


Research is key! Although it might be overbearing at first, finding out what games you want to play right now and in the future is a great start.

We always recommend going for a PC that'll perform perfectly for your chosen games now, but also be capable of playing your favourite upcoming games too. This way you can avoid buying a PC that will only just work now and then needs upgrading later down the line.

You can save yourself a lot of money that way and unnecessary drama when you realise your next big game won't perform well on your PC.


How do you decide?


A graphics card will be the most impactful choice when choosing a gaming PC. You'll need to make sure the graphics card you select will be capable of playing your chosen games at 60 frames per second or more for the best experience.

Nvidia offers a range of brilliant features including Ray tracing and DLSS, allowing select games to showcase stunning graphics with high frame rates.

AMD also offer a great choice and in some cases are very comparable to Nvidia in terms of gaming performance, however if you’re 100% looking for Ray tracing then Nvidia has the edge for now.

For your processor, ideally you’d be looking for an AMD Ryzen 5 or an Intel Core i5 for gaming, to achieve the best price to performance.


So what do I need?


All of these GPUs will be capable of playing the latest titles including Fortnite, Call of duty: Warzone, Battlefront 2042, Halo Infinite, Valorant at your chosen resolution requirements. Want to keep things easy? Checkout our PC By Game page. Shop now: Ultimate PCs By Game at AWD-IT

What if I already have a gaming PC?


For those that already have their own PC but are in a difficult situation when it comes to upgrading, may find our Motherboard, CPU & Ram upgrade bundles to be useful, but will have to be patient when searching for a new graphics card to add to their upgraded system. Our advice is to hold out with your current GPU until the shortages stabilise.

Motherboard Bundles | Range of Upgrades Available Here

Buying a new PC might actually be the better option for those that already have a PC and are looking to upgrade, you can transfer your games and files from your current PC, so you don’t lose any of your data. You can then earn some extra cash by selling your spare hardware, this will end up being a lot cheaper than searching for a Graphics card to buy simply due to the inflated pricing.
