7. Avatar i5-4677K Gaming Desktop (Black)

 

A great deal for a starter gaming PC. The 3.4 GHz processor can be easily overclocked to 4 GHz that too with the stock cooler. Also, the mid-range HD7770 can be slightly OC’ed with the Catalyst software from ATI or Afterburner software. You must be able to run most of the games in high definition on medium to high settings. The case is quite big which gives you lots of space to work with for upgrading.

Quite identical to the above-mentioned product, with the Alienware X51, you can have the high-performance 4th Gen Intel Core processors; graphics card and storage of 1 TB that you need to overwhelm your opponents. Now, as for as the computer performance is concerned, it’s great! It runs every game that you can throw at it in high settings ( for example, Skyrim,
Borderlands 2, Titanfall etc.) The appearance and style are really cool too and it’s almost about the size of an Xbox one. The only issue a few trials have pointed out with this computer is that the fans on the computer tend to be a bit too loud for some liking.
