Gaming PCs

Machines designed for speed and responsiveness, with capabilities to run gaming graphics cards for high frame rates.

Uses tried and tested components, modified by our staff who are all gamers themselves. We can supply machines from a decent entry level up to high end systems for multiple monitors and even 4k gaming.

State of the market April 2022: The global shortage on graphics cards and AMD processors with built in graphics (APUs) is easing. Although pricing for good graphics cards is still relatively expensive they are generally available. We’ve included cards in our builds below as examples, with a bit of variability we can build a similar price even if we can’t immediately supply the exact specification.

Why our Gaming PCs?

We love gaming, but we hate what some suppliers call gaming PCs, which can focus on just one component and not balance a system properly.

The two biggest problems with gaming PC design are balance and expense.

With an unlimited budget you can get a truly wonderful machine that will play everything on giant screens. However its rare our customers come to us with such a budget, so we make careful design choices that give a performance machine to fit a price point.

The PCs listed represent machines capable of playing games on standard full HD screens (1920×1080). The detail level can always be adjusted when gaming, so our entry level system will play nearly all modern games at medium settings, and older ones at higher settings. While the mid-tier machine will do so faster and at higher quality settings for all current games.

We have balanced the machines component wise which changes the price and performance relatively.

These are only examples of what can be supplied (component versions and supply make pricing slightly variable), nearly every component is customisable or up-gradable, you’ll need to talk to us if you want to change things around, but these specs should give you an idea of what machines we can build you at what price point.

For relative speeds of the CPU/GPUs listed as options see our guide here.
