Gaming is playing an electronic video game, which is often done on a dedicated gaming console, PC or smartphone. If you are planning to game on a computer, then the first step is to check the minimum system requirements for your chosen games. Each system requirement will specify a compatible operating system, processor type, graphic card and the minimum amount of RAM. Typically, you want to ensure your specifications are significantly above the minimum system requirements to ensure your computer runs effectively. Gaming could be a very graphics intensive software depending on the game and screen resolution, so we recommend going with a dedicated graphics card in the mid-range level to high-range level. However, if you are planning on gaming at ultra high resolutions like 4K, you will need to go with a high-range level graphics card. On top of running your other software, gaming software itself is also utilizes a lot of RAM. We recommend at least 16GB of RAM just to be on the safe side as the latest operating systems are also becoming more and more RAM intensive. However, your use of multiple applications may require you to have 32GB or more of RAM. Most gaming software uses multi-threaded processes. Therefore, your CPU choice should weigh both on the CPU Clock speed and the core count. We only recommend a Solid-State Drive for your operating system and programs instead of a traditional mechanical hard-drive. You can use a mechanical hard-drive as a secondary drive for storing your data if you wish, but we also recommend having your games on a solid-state drive so the playback and speed of your games are not bottlenecked by the read and write speeds of your storage device. If you do happen to go with a solid-state drive to hold your games, ensure you have enough space because games can be really large in file size.
