What are the reasons for using the gaming PC configurator?

The graphics card

Current, powerful gaming PCs need a graphics card with enough punch to display current games smoothly in high resolutions. In our gaming PC configurator you will find the available graphics cards from the two leading manufacturers AMD and Nvidia.

Two crucial characteristics for the performance of a graphics card are memory and clock of the GPU. The higher the GPU is clocked, the faster commands can be executed. The memory of a graphics card for a gaming PC should be at least 8 GB. With modern graphics cards, the GPU clock is in the range of 1400 2000 MHz and varies depending on the load. The power saving mechanisms of modern graphics cards are so sophisticated that the card only overclocks when the full graphics performance is called up.

For a gaming PC, it should be at least a mid-range solution so that there is a certain future security. Our technology experts currently recommend selecting the following solutions in our gaming PC configurator for mid-range systems:

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 8GB RAM or

AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB RAM

Current games can be played smoothly in HD with high details on both cards.

The recommendations of our technical experts from our gaming PC configurator for high-end systems are:

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 12GB RAM or

AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB RAM

These two maps mark the spearhead of what is currently technically feasible. The Radeon impresses with its incredibly large memory and fast clock, the Nvidia card also has a lot of memory, although not as much as the AMD, and is insanely fast. Both cards are suitable for the highest demands. Streaming games in 4K shouldn't be a problem with these cars.

Our gaming PC configurator will find the right graphics card for you according to your wishes.

The processor

The second crucial component when putting together a gaming PC is the processor, which can also be checked with our gaming PC configurator. It is the heart of the gaming PC and provides the necessary computing power. The graphics card in particular is dependent on sufficient processor performance: If the CPU is too weak, the graphics card cannot deliver its full performance. The processor delivers more performance, the higher the number of cores and their clock. Roughly speaking, an 8-core processor with 4 GHz has a lot more power than a dual-core processor with 2 GHz.

Two typical mid-range processors that are among our best-selling CPUs are Intel's Core i5 9600K for the Intel fans and AMD's Ryzen 5 2600X for the AMD devotees.

The motherboard

We offer you the full range of solutions available on the market, from a simple mainboard with a few additional functions to high-quality mainboards that make overclocking and controlling RGB functions child's play. Our experts have picked out the models with the best price-performance ratio, so you can be sure that we will make you a good offer and that the gaming PC configurator will check compatibility in the background.

The main memory and mass storage

A current, future-proof gaming PC should have at least 16GB RAM, there are no upper limits, but anything above 64GB RAM is greatly oversized. In addition to the size, the clock rate and generation of the RAM are also very important for the performance and thus for the gaming PC. Common RAM sticks are dual-channel kits with 2 x 8 GB DDR4-3200 that deliver excellent performance at a good price. Absolute top memory modules go up to DDR5-6400. One should keep in mind that the top technology always costs disproportionately much until it slowly becomes the standard and then is affordable for everyone. So if you want to get the absolute last bit out of the RAM timings and the RAM clock, such a premium product makes sense. For a good, normal gaming PC, a product with a good price-performance ratio is often completely sufficient. The gaming PC configurator often helps with the choice.

In our experience, a very viable solution is to opt for a large 2TB hard drive and one or two smaller, fast SSDs in the gaming PC configurator. One SSD is used for the operating system, the second SSD is intended for games and the large but slow hard disk can be used to store all larger files where lightning-fast access is not crucial. Films, photos, archiving the now very cheap, large hard drives are still suitable for all of this.

The gaming PC configurator can also be something for the eye: put together the icing on the cake for the gaming PC.

We offer you various customization options with the help of the gaming PC configurator. This starts with parts like the case and continues with RGB RAM, RGB graphics cards and RGB case fans.

It is obvious that a case with a window is the right one for your PC if you have beautified the inner workings of your gaming PC and want to proudly present it to your visitors. Or you want to put yourself in ecstasy with this sight. With the gaming PC configurator, we give you all the tools and options to make your dream come true.
