PC gaming is beautiful. You can access more games than on any other device and add extra elements through added mods. When you boast that you can play the top games with a keyboard and mouse, people seem to think you’re some kind of wizard. Choosing the best gaming PC can be subjective, especially given that you have people who enjoy the satisfaction of building their own and those who would prefer to flash the cash on a prebuilt PC. For those of you wanting to buy the PC, plug it in, and play, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we will take a look at five of the top gaming PCs in 2021.
- Alienware Aurora – Ryzen Edition
- Alienware Aurora – Intel Edition
- CyberPower Infinity X109 Gaming PC
- HP Omen
Alienware Aurora – Ryzen Edition
Ryzen dominates the battle of the Alienware, at least until Intel’s next model comes rocketing onto the scene that is. This beauty comes with an AMD Ryzen processor, with 16-cores, and is capable of making the most out of its stellar Nividia RTX 3090 graphics card, which should have you mastering your favourite games in no time. You can also edit the prebuild and opt for a 6-core chipset and a GTX 1650 card that will nail 1080p gaming perfectly.
Alienware Aurora – Intel Edition
While Alienware waited to get their hands on Intel’s Rocket Lake CPU, they have stopped selling them on their website. However, you can still find them on websites like Best Buy. Sharing a unique casing with its Ryzen counterpart, this styling looks like something straight out of ET. The current model houses Intel’s Comet Lake range and can be paired with the GTX 1650 up to the RTX 3090, but no one needs a GPU that powerful unless they work with 3D rendering.
CyberPower Infinity X109 Gaming PC
For some people, a new gaming PC has to be packed with a fantastic CPU and GPU, as well as more RGB lighting than you could need. If this sounds like you, then you’re in luck with the CyberPower’s Infinity X109 PC. With five fans and liquid cooling, this Intel Core i9 10850K packed PC works almost silently. When you add into the mix the GeForce 3070, you’re looking at an average of 130fps in games like Division 2 and Tomb Raider.
We all know HP, as they’ve been around since the dawn of time itself – or at least the computer. With that, they pack their years of experience into two highly customisable cases at a reasonable price of under $1000 (just). The reason for them selling a top-of-the-range PC with such a low price tag is that their focus is on tech, without the fancy visual spectacles. So, if you want a prebuilt gaming PC with no hassle, this one should absolutely be on your radar.
Finding a prebuilt computer can be difficult work, especially when you don’t know what specs you need and how much the original parts cost. The best thing to do is price check each part to find out how much you’re being charged for the pleasure of the build.
