Best Hardware For Your Gaming PC

A fully functioning gaming PC requires 7 major components to power on: a processor, motherboard, CPU cooler, hard drive, power supply, RAM, and a case to hold it all together. On top of these components, you can choose to include optional components such as LED screens or temperature gauges that can be installed within your system. Gaming PC’s are highly customizable which can make building a PC feel overwhelming. 

In this page, we will gather as many components to review so that you can make the best choice possible when building your custom PC. We choose our components by finding parts that have amassed many reviews and can be confidently installed in any machine. If we choose to review a low quality component, it will be to inform you of why it received low ratings.
