    Serious gaming is an immersive experience that requires a powerful computer and a monitor that delivers sharp graphics. Gaming laptops really can’t compete with gaming desktops when it comes to power and performance. Gaming desktop specifications will depend on whether you’re a beginning, intermediate, or advanced gamer as more complex games require better graphic cards, more RAM, and more powerful CPUs. These computers will have an Intel or AMD processor with the AMD allowing “overclocking” when you want to push your machine to its upper limits. These processors typically have 2, 4, or 6 cores for smoother gaming. Beginning and intermediate gamers should look for a model that allows them to upgrade components like RAM, hard drives, and peripherals.
