Best Gaming PCs 2019

13th August 2019
A gaming PC is an investment. Whether you're building your own desktop PC or buying one out of the box - like the towers we'll be showcasing here - you need to know what you want to get the right rig for your gaming needs. If you're looking to play the latest games, you'll need to find a machine powerful enough to last the next few years; if you're looking for a computer that can run big releases such as The Division 2 or Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and will also run upcoming titles such as Doom Eternal and The Outer Worlds later in the year, then you need the best gaming PC available.

What to look for in a gaming PC

There are various things to look out for when buying a gaming PC. These include:
  • Budget: High end gaming PCs are priced at £1,000 or higher for the ultimate experience. A good gaming PC will start at around £600, so you must decide the build that's best for your budget.
  • VR: If you're interested in a VR headset such as HTC Vive, ensure the PC you buy can handle it.
  • Upgradability: If you want your PC to last into the next generation, you need a machine you can get into easily. 
  • Plan your upgrades: It's easy to replace a GPU or SSD, and it will be cheaper than buying a new PC after.
  • USB-C and Thunderbolt Ports: If you want to have more than one 4K monitor attached to your PC, these ports are a must. 
With the above in mind, here is our list of the best gaming PCs available in 2019 which cater to these different needs and budgets
