ESports Gaming

ESports games are some of the most popular games in the world. ESports covers a range of competitive games. Popular games include Starcraft 2, Rocket League, League of Legends, DOTA 2 and Overwatch. These games are popular due to their competitive aspects and skill based gameplay.

ESport titles are also popular due to working on a large range of PCs. An ESports gaming PC does not need to have the most cutting edge hardware.

All our ranges of PCs are ESports ready. Our Bronze to Gold Range offer you the best value for money.

1080P Gaming

1080p or Full HD gaming is ideal for most gamers. It’s the resolution you get standard on T.V.s and monitors from 22”. 1080p is great for people who play ESport games and the latest big budget games. It gives you a crisp HD gaming experience with great colours and detail.

Games like Call of Duty, Assassins Creed, Destiny 2 and GTA 5 are some of the more popular titles people prefer to play at 1080p.

Our Silver to Platinum range are all 1080p ready. Cube recommends our Gold range but if you are looking for the Ultimate 1080P gaming experience look for a Platinum PC.

Oculus Rift VR Gaming

The Oculus Rift is one of the most popular VR headsets on the market with a huge selection of games, which is constantly growing. VR opens up a whole new world of gaming and is the ideal way to play driving games and flight sims.

Oculus have developed the Rift to work on a large range of PCs. All our Gold Medal PCs meets the minimum requirements for the Oculus Rift, although it is best to check the VR games you are planning to play as the requirements may differ.

For more information go to the Oculus Rift Website: https://www.oculus.com/ or come and try the Oculus Rift in our Birmingham showroom.


The HTC Vive is also a very popular VR headset. It is designed with room scale VR in mind, allowing you to move around and be part of the VR world. Explore virtual worlds while sitting, standing or moving around.

All our Platinum range of PCs meet the recommended requirements for the HTC Vive.

Game Streaming

To be able to play and stream games simultaneously requires hardware that’s up to the task. Game streaming is another way for you to play the games you love and also meet and interact with other gamers around the world. Popular game streaming platforms like Twitch.TV and You Tube allow you to share your best gaming moments with the world.

You Tube: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2474026?hl=en-GB

All our Platinum range of PCs are designed with this in mind.

2K and Above Gaming

If you are looking for a PC that can handle the demands of 2K (1440p) or even 4K gaming then our Platinum range is your best choice. To play games at 2 times or 4 times the resolution of 1080p you need the right hardware.

For 2K resolution Cube recommends either the GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 graphics card and if you want to go to 4K Cube recommends the GTX 1080 or GTX 1080Ti graphics card.

Game Debate

We have also built Game Debate integration into all our PC pages. This lets you search for the games you want to play and tells you if the PC you are looking at meets the requirements to play that game.

Simply type in the name of the game you want to play and you will be shown if the PC meets the recommended or minimum requirements.
