Good Gaming Computers

September 17, 2012 10:07 am

Gaming consoles crowd the living rooms of many households; Microsoft’s Xbox 360, Nintendo’s Wii, and Sony’s PlayStation 3 all provide endless hours of entertainment. But PCMag’s Lead Analyst for desktops, Joel Santo Domingo, says, “for truly connected and immersive gaming experiences, desktop PCs reign supreme.” If, on the other hand, you need something portable to tote over to a friend’s house or convention hall, a mobile gaming laptop is your best bet.
If you’re hunting for a gaming computer on your own, you’ll want to check out “How To Buy A Gaming PC“, where you’ll get tips on when you should go for a dedicated GPU and when integrated graphics will do. Or if you’re feeling brave, follow PCMag’s instructions and try building your own gaming PC for $500, $750, $1,000, $1,500, $2,000, or even more than $3,000. But if you want some quick options, then this is the cheat sheet for you.
We’ve rounded up eight solid gaming desktop and laptop options, all of which were rated three or three and a half stars from our analysts. They aren’t the best, as some lack key features or processing power, but if gaming is your priority, they will treat you well.
