Recommendations for the self-made gaming PC

If you want even more power, you should pay attention to the turbo clock. The Core i7-8700k offers up to 4.7 GHz here. There is even more CPU power with the i7-9700k or i9-9900k.

What PC do I need for Apex Legends?

Apex Legends came out of nowhere and promptly became the most popular battle royale game. So that you only have to fight against the opponents and not with the FPS, you should already have a quite potent PC.

As a minimum requirement, EA therefore recommends a current Core i3 or AMD four cores, 6GB RAM, and a simple graphics card with at least 1GB VRAM. However, this equipment is just enough to be able to play the game.

Depending on the resolution and quality settings, a much better graphics card or CPU will soon be necessary. If you don’t really have high expectations of the game, you will be able to play Apex Legends reasonably well with the budget gaming PC in low details and a smaller resolution.

However, if it is to be at least Full HD, there is no way around the mid-range PC. The Advanced PC is recommended, especially if the details can be a bit higher. For everything over FullHD, at least the high-end or even 4K gaming PC makes more than sense.

What are the Borderlands 3 PC requirements?

The third part of the series is not only tough in terms of story, but also in terms of system requirements. If you want to play Borderlands 3 smoothly in good quality, you should own at least a current AMD Ryzen 5 or Intel Core i5, since the game is able to use up to six cores simultaneously.

The graphics card should be at least a GTX 1660 Ti with FullHD resolution. If the resolution is even higher, at least a GTX 1080 or better is mandatory – for 4K even an RTX 2080 or GTX 1080 Ti.

How much performance does my PC need for Red Dead Redemption 2?

Unfortunately, the PC version of the open-world western game is extremely hardware-hungry. Computerbase’s community benchmarks underscore this clearly.

If you want to play smoothly in high resolutions and/or in the best settings, you can hardly avoid a high-priced graphics card such as the nVidia Geforce RTX 2080 Ti. Even in FullHD, powerful graphics cards such as the AMD RX Vega 64 or GTX 1080 quickly work up a sweat.

So if you want to make as few compromises as possible, you should go for the 4K gaming PC. Otherwise, we recommend at least the Advanced Gaming PC as the bare minimum for this game.

Which PC is best for Call of Duty: Warzone?

The free Call of Duty: Warzone is comparatively hardware-friendly. Even with the budget gaming PC, good frame rates can be achieved in Full HD – but the details shouldn’t be too high.

If you want to play smoothly in Full HD and medium to good settings, you should grab the 800 euro PC. Full HD and maximum details are possible with the 1000 euro PC. If you want to play with a higher resolution in WQHD or even 4K, then we recommend the high-end gaming PC.

What accessories are useful for Microsoft Flight Simulator?

Apart from the rather high system requirements and the minimum 32GB RAM we recommend, there are numerous useful peripherals for the flight simulator. For example, a joystick to control the virtual aircraft. Here, among other things, Hotas Flight Control Systems can be used. For example, Logitech has some products in its portfolio specifically for flight simulators.

More hardware and peripherals for gaming PCs

All of the above gaming PC builds come without optical drives. If a read and write drive for the round data discs is also to be installed, then you can choose between a DVD or Blu-ray burner, provided the housing has an external 5.25” slot.

If the hard drive is not enough, you will find suitable hard drives or SSDs for retrofitting here.
Our buying guides for gaming monitors, gaming headsets, gaming mice and sound cards will also help you with further equipment.

If the hard drive is to be expanded, we recommend suitable SSDs and additional internal hard drives. If you want to do something good for your seat while gaming, we recommend a comfortable gaming chair. A suitable operating system such as Windows 10 is also useful.
