A gaming PC is one of the most flexible ways to play games, with options to upgrade and pick just the parts you need. There’s plenty to keep in mind when buying a gaming PC: power, size, components. and what resolution you want to play at. If all you need is to play a few AAA titles at 1080p, you may not need a high-end CPU and graphics card.

But if you want to play at 1440p or 4K, then you need to start thinking about saving more for your rig. CPU horsepower is also tied to gaming acumen, but branching out into anything much over a quad-core processor will primarily see performance gains in multi-threaded workloads such as video processing, rendering and encoding, not games.

Intel recently released its 14th Gen “Raptor Lake Refresh” processors, including the Core i9-14900K, Core i7-14700K and Core i5-14600K. In our recent testing, we’ve found that AMD’s 7000-series X3D chips are still the most powerful for gaming. We’re currently in the process of testing a few new desktops with some of these chips to get an idea how they perform.

On the graphics front, Nvidia has updated its graphics card lineup. The RTX 4090 and 4060 Ti and RTX 4060 are staying around as they were, but the RTX 4080, RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4070 have seen the announcement of new Super cards. We’ve reviewed the RTX 4070 Super and RTX 4070 Ti Super.
