If your prized PC gaming rig has suddenly taken a nose dive it can be a pricey fix. From replacing graphics cards, fans, memory cards and imports of all kinds, the numbers can add up quick. While you can choose to DIY a new system, there are now more pre-assembled gaming pc’s than ever before, no more begging your siblings for their hand-me-downs.
While there are a multitude of companies to choose from, think Lenovo and HP, not all pcs are created equal. Finding a pre-made rig will take a bit of digging to ensure you stay within your budget. If you’re in the market for a solid 1080p model, look to Lenovo’s Legion y20 Cube.
Currently on the market for around seven hundred and twenty dollars, it’s easy to see why this set up is a money saver in the long run. When replacing a 1080p graphics card, the cost can range anywhere from four-hundred to eight-hundred dollars. When you compare that to getting the whole set up for just seven hundred and twenty, the price is easily justified.
If you want to pump up the graphics a bit and move onto a 1440p set up, Dell has your back. Dell’s XPS Tower is a beast of a desktop. It’s bland and, to be quite honest, boring structure, houses an Intel is-8100 processor and 2400 RAM. While a bit more expensive then the Lenovo, at eight hundred and eighty, the extra boost in graphics is well worth it.
At the top of the list sits the 4k monster from Cyber Power System. Their Gamer Extreme VR is the ultimate setup. While you will have to shell out fifteen-hundred bucks the graphics, storage and internal cooling system make it well worth the price.
