Users wishing to enter the world of electronic games have to determine some important things at the beginning in order to enjoy the games, including whether the games will be played on desktop computers or laptops, or rely on mobile gaming devices to play games in the living room while relaxing on the The sofa, or the use of the smartphone to play games anywhere and at any time, as well as the need to determine the budget that will be spent to enjoy electronic games.
Alexander Kopf, from the German “Game Star” magazine, explained that despite the availability of desktop computers for many users, their use in running games cannot be done without upgrading the “hardware”.
And the German expert added, “Although gaming devices can not be upgraded, they are less expensive.” And gaming devices are more user-friendly, so you only need to turn on the device and click on the game.
“If gaming on a smartphone or gaming device has reached its limits, then the user has to invest some money in buying a desktop computer with better technical equipment or upgrading their hardware,” Kopf said.
The user will need powerful processors and advanced graphics cards when they want to play games with friends online, such as League of Legends or World of Warcraft so that the computer can run the games smoothly.
The German expert pointed out that there is a somewhat bigger obstacle when playing games on desktop computers, as the user has to take some actions. In addition to installing games, it may also be necessary to install the program for the game, which runs certain server services.
The advantages of using desktop computers in games are the availability of more processor performance and greater efficiency of graphics cards for additional expenses, and in general, desktop computers are more flexible than gaming devices, as well as the availability of many games that can be played on computers at the present time.
When the user already has a desktop computer, it is best to try out the games you want to play on it, see if the games can be installed, whether load times are acceptable, and do the games run smoothly on it? If this is not the case then the screen resolution can be lowered, this procedure leads to games running smoothly most of the time, and if all these actions do not work, then the desktop hardware must be upgraded.
The German expert Kopf pointed out that the prices of processors and graphics cards alone are prohibitive, and if the user buys the components of a desktop computer in the form of single components, it may often be more expensive than a new desktop computer. The cost of this type of desktop computer is not less than 1,000 euros ($1,128).
For his part, Benedict Schlotmann, from the online gaming magazine “MeinMMO”, added that the user can use the keyboard, mouse and screen available to him to enter the world of electronic games, and he will not initially have to purchase dedicated gaming peripherals. .
Kopf stressed the need to have some technical equipment in gaming desktops, including the Intel Core i processor, and that the model number should consist of 4 or 5 numbers starting with the numbers 8, 9, 10 and 11, such as the processor (Core i3 8300), and if If computers are equipped with AMD processors, it is better to rely on Ryzen processors in models that start with numbers 2, 3, 4 or 5 such as the processor (Ryzen 3 2200G).
In general, the quad-core processors, which include 8 tracks, suffice the needs of beginners in the world of electronic games, but if the user wants to secure his future requirements, it is better to rely on hexa or eight-core processors, and the German expert Kopf confirmed that the user will not need more technical equipment So.
The graphics cards built into the League of Legends processors are usually enough, and if the user desires more graphics efficiency, to run complex and computing-intensive games like Cyberpunk 2077 or Asian Creed Valhalla ( Assassin’s Creed Valhalla) in this case he can use additional graphics cards.
When purchasing additional graphics cards, the user has the option to choose between Nvidia and AMD products. In the case of playing games with Full HD technology, Nvidia graphics cards should be based on the RTX 2060 model (RTX 2060), and when AMD products are preferred, graphics cards should be used starting from the model. Radeon RX 5600 XT
In order to smoothly display the images of complex games, intensive computing, it is necessary to have a sufficient capacity of RAM, since the limited capacity of RAM causes noticeable vibrations, and in general there is no longer a problem in this aspect, because most desktop computers come with memory Random access is sufficient.
Experts recommended relying on at least 8 GB of RAM, and it is better to choose models with a capacity of 16 GB, with the need to use SSDs.
And when you want to buy a new screen to enjoy electronic games, this screen should not be too small or large, and it is better to choose models between 27 and 32 inches.
The user often has a keyboard and mouse that can be used with games, but if one wants to buy new equipment, he must take into account that these equipments are comfortable, that the mouse rests in the hand in a comfortable position, and that it is suitable for the size of the hand so as not to cause spasms in the hands Hand during long gaming sessions, these terminals should be tried before purchasing.
