Showing off the very best of gaming PCs that you can build!
To each their own, but I can't stand the look of most of those custom builds. They look more like a juke box at the local diner than a PC.
Some of these do look a bit odd but some of them I love. Like the one that is built into the desk is top tier imo.
RGB is over done in most custom builds, less is more when RGB's are concerned.
Heh. I'm still just rocking my 2 680s, i5, and 144hz monitor that I built about 5 years, and I can still tell you that.
I wish I could afford even one of these. Some great builds.
Bit of a "none article" I mean those gaming rigs must have cost thousands of dollars. Its like comparing a Zonda against a Ford Focus. What it proves is that some people have more money than sense.
I've always said that, were I to hit the lottery, I would spend all my time traveling, and in the classroom. I wouldn't throw my money away on frivolities; just seeing, and learning, as much as I could, as I lived nicely, though still somewhat modestly. That said .... I can assure you I would always have a few grand sitting under my desk all the same. This is my hobby, after all. If you have the cash, invest in the best experience you can get. Nothing wrong with that.
Well the article never claimed these were budget PC's.
though the title does imply that throwing as much money as you'd like at a custom pc build PROVES PC's are #1 /s
These rigs require quite a bit of know-how along with the money. So to just dismiss them with “more money than sense” is a bit silly. Obviously this is just as much a hobby as it is building a PC for these guys. Not sure why others are judgemental as to how others spend money to compliment their creativity.
If I only have enough money to build my dream Pc:)
For a peasant like me, my "dream" PC will be the PS5. LOL
There, i fixed it ----------> 8 Incredible Gaming PC Builds That Prove That MONEY Is Number 1
Well the vast majority of folks couldn’t create rigs like these no matter how much money they had. But I agree this has nothing to do with PC being “number 1”. Just some damn impressive individuals who can take something as simple as a PC and elevate they aesthetics to incredible levels.
This is why I really love PC gaming because of the almost limitless customizations.
Nice builds but this does not prove PC is #1. They spent thousands while a console owner spent $300-500. I built a $2000 PC and still waiting for a game worth the build that's not POE or LoL style graphics and gameplay and that is not on Console. Modding makes PC great and higher frame rates but Sony 1st party games still look better than most PC games. Doesn't matter your build if the developer doesn't make a game to take advantage of your GPU.

Nope it doesn't prove that at all. I just under 2 weeks ago built a capable gaming pc for around the price of a console. Yes used ebay for most parts. Most them are used. £50 for cpu and mobo (fx 4130) £25 for 8gb ddr3 ram £6 for 500gb SATA HDD Case and PSU £40 GTX 1060 £180 Windows £10 £10 Little over £300 that destroys both the xbox one s and ps4 slim. 1080p 60fps for pretty much most titles. Pubg being the one game I have tried so far dropping to mid 40s during gameplay. In terms of ps4 pro and xbox one x it beats them both in frame rate. Spite it having an old cpu.
No just no. This is incorrect.
@TheEnigma313 Please explain? Is the gerforce frame counter lying to me or something?
You can get cheap parts if you just shop around abit, especially used parts, although I would not recommend that. I like my electronic stuff to be new. Anyway I would say GTX1060 is a bit weaker than the X1X but also abit stronger than the Pro.
@Kun_ADR I don't dispute that about the 1060. However, games like Skyrim, Destiny 2, GTA all locked to 30 on consoles. The GTX 1060 can handle them at 60 no problem.
Clickbait title how pathetic
What next? Eight great cars that prove having expendable income is awesome?
This is fucking retarded. Not a single person in the world disagrees that pc is number 1. This should be deleted.
I love PC gaming, but these type of builds cost. Most gamers want to just pay a few hundred bucks and game right out of the box. People need to stop comparing console and pc gamers. Some people do both and others are exclusive to pc or consoles.
this is the equivalent to saying, 8 custom built super cars that prove they are better then your car.. 😶
Imagine that another article about the pc being superior..............yawn. Game machines of all type should fit your lifestyle and wallet. As expensive and over priced GPUs have become for the price the consoles are a better deal.
I’m a pc guy but what does any of this prove? Lol
Did we need any proof? Insecure much? :))
pc gaming is awesome, but thanks to the mining craze I cant recommend getting into it right now at these crazy prices.
I'd be embarrassed to have most of these in my home. Too many RGBs and gimmicks. No class. 12 year old me would love them though.
The first PC I built was huge, it was decked out in lights and fans and controllers for everything with LCD displays on the front for temps and speeds... Then my next build was a mid tower with no lights and just functional. My next build will be as small as I can get. It is amazing how the need to "make a statement" disappears as one matures.
The statement that being mature means you want a plane looking small PC. Is pretty harsh generalization based on personal preference. I've been the most "mature" one in my circle my whole life. However that has no reflection on how I choose to build my pc. My gaming room is ment to be fun and I like to have room to work with in my builds. Small builds are fine if that's what you want. However you don't have to try and downplay other preferences as if yours is some how better or more mature. Not that your statement was to particularly do that. Just saying that's how I felt it came off reading it.mainly the part where you generalized people who don't want a small plane pc. Are some how less mature and want to make a statement.
@frosty Always kind of thought that about that dumb blue light on the ds4.
and God Of War was just announced for April 20th. must be nice being Number 1
yep, but what does that have to do with US PC gamers ?? we have the money to buy both if needed but most PC gamers wouldn't lower their standards to play on some cheap 400$ console that's filled with nothing but movie based games. but look at this I have both so keep your worries to your self https://imgur.com/RaT4tNy and here is my specs that sh--ts on all consoles https://imgur.com/SRcaOHR
"yep, but what does that have to do with US PC gamers ?? we have the money to buy both if needed" i also own both and get the best of both worlds. I'm just not a PC snob. pc doesn't have anything exclusive that can compare to ps4 exclusives. and all top AAA multiplats are available on the ps4. God Of War, Days Gone, Spider Man, Death Stranding, Ghost Of Tsushima, Horizon Zero Dawn, Bloodborne, and the list goes on. nothing exclusive on pc that is any good, but please name a few games and I'll give them a try. i don't play MOBA'S and besides that what else is there? please I'm waiting for a grande experience.
"pc doesn't have anything exclusive that can compare to ps4 exclusives. and all top AAA multi plats are available on the ps4. " it would take me hrs to list all of them but I advise you to go and look at steam you will find your answer there https://imgur.com/GRj9BZ1
"it would take me hrs to list all of them but I advise you to go and look at steam you will find your answer there" you can't show me anything because you have nothing. i didn't tell you to go look for proof i showed you. waiting..
Enter offended sony fans.
looks don't matter, power does
In your opinion
Yeah, it's pretty important to you right now that power doesn't matter. Ps5 will definitely be here soon because sony depends on its playstation brand to stay afloat seeing as they get wrecked in every other market. Hang in there.
@G3ng4rbeing: wrecked in every other market should give one concern, but the market they are successful in generated 108 Billion in 2017. i will take talented developers over more power any day, and Sony has the best. hold that for awhile
They have some of the best, I actually agree. I do seem to remember a lot of bitterness around nintendo competing against itself with both highest rated games last year. But then we do know nintendo gets a free pass, just look at wii u. ;)
@G3ng4r " I do seem to remember a lot of bitterness around nintendo competing against itself with both highest rated games last year. But then we do know nintendo gets a free pass, just look at wii u. ;)" agree 100%
Honestly I am really not a fan of any of these. Most of them extremely impractical to work on. Which when you build your own you know is important.I don't know where people are crying about rgb from. These builds practically have none. An Jays build is mainly just the case, not that impressive.
