Our tip: Decide in advance which requirements your future dream PC should fulfill. Then you can get started right away and configure the PC according to your needs. What features do you need for a powerful gaming PC that is also reasonably priced? We recommend a processor in the performance range from Intel Core i3 to i5 or the AMD counterpart Ryzen 3 to 5. Do you work from home and value a powerful Home & Office computer that you can equip directly with all important office applications? An Intel Core i7 would certainly be too powerful for the home office. When it comes to standard office work, it is more important that the computer works quietly thanks to quiet fans and an SSD hard disk. An SSD ensures that Windows and all programs start quickly. If the computer is primarily used for image editing, its graphics card, processor and RAM should always be adequately powerful. A medium-performance graphics card with sufficient memory is suitable for image editing. However, when it comes to video editing, the situation is different. In this case, a high-quality graphics card should be used so that the CPU can outsource certain processes to it. Our PC configurator checks the compatibility of your selection directly. This prevents you from making expensive investments that are of no use to you. Whether CPU, RAM or storage solution, you are always on the safe side with us when assembling your PC.
