2019 is looking to be a crazy year for gaming PCs and Macs, especially considering VR content is becoming more mainstream. There will always be options for those who don’t have much money and just want something that will run MMOs as well. Here’s a short guide on some good gaming desktops to suit various budgets right now.
Lenovo Y Series
These machines come with features like over-clockable Intel Core i7 processors, RAID 0 SSD storage options, NVIDIA GeForce GTX (10 Series) video graphics, and tool-less upgradability. This is a higher-end series, yet some models and configurations are still fairly affordable. Newer models can be equipped with AMD Ryzen processors and Radeon RX 570 for VR.
XPS Tower Special Edition
This series of Dell high-performing desktops ranges considerably in price. There are various configurations available to suit any type of gamer. They can be configured with up to 9th Gen. processors and the most powerful VR-ready graphics. The black chassis allows for easy expandability and is made from molded plastic and sheet metal.
Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Edition
What would a list of good gaming desktops be without Alienware? Dell’s more expensive (and these machines really DO come with a high-price) gaming series really pushes the limits of technology with the new Threadripper line, which varies from a couple of thousand dollars to several thousand. Those who have the money though really will get all of the gaming power they could really need, like a AMD Ryzen CPU 16-core with 32MB cache (950X).
Acer Predator Orion 5000
These are good gaming desktops with really pretty blue lighting and see-through chassis. With VR-ready configurations and IceTunnel 2.0 technology, they really do deliver true performance. The lowest-priced model comes with Intel Core i5 hexa-core processor, 16GB DDR SDRAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (8GB), and SSD storage. While certainly more affordable than Dell’s Threadripper Edition, these Acer desktops still might be a bit high-priced for some.
Apple 27-Inch iMac -5K Retina Display
Depending on how you configure this one, you might be able to get it for under $2,000. Just be sure and use Apple promo codes. Like other iMacs, it has an all-in-one design, making it a great choice for those who do not have room for the giant, bulking towers that the other gaming desktops come with these days. There is good hardware inside of the stunning 5-mm thin display. If you really don’t need the 27-inch display, you can save money by opting for a 21.5-inch model.
If you’re really want a gaming rig to enjoy your favorite games over the next year, all of these are good gaming desktops that are worth investing in.
