How much does a prebuilt gaming PC cost?

No Comments

Pre-built gaming PCs can come in a wide range of prices, these prices are mainly dependent on the base specifications built with the configuration. As you do your research and become more familiar with individual components, brand offerings and the performance they offer, you’ll start to realise that categorizing them is one effective way to sort through them. With pre-built gaming PCs, the same methodology applies: entry-level, mid-level and high-level gaming systems exist, and we like to refer to these levels as PC Tiers.


WHAT ARE PC TIERS?

EntrY-TIER:

An entry-level tier gaming PC would likely be configured with an entry-level processor such as the Intel Core i3 or AMD Ryzen 3 processor and an NVIDIA GTX 1650 Super 4GB graphics card. This tier is aimed towards gamers who might be interested in getting into PC gaming, or those who play less demanding titles hardware-wise but want to have a good gaming experience every time they play. Picking up a pre-built gaming PC would make it super easy for a new PC gamer to embrace and experience what it’s like to play games on a PC. If you build a gaming PC with an Entry-level system that are designed for 1080P gaming at various graphics settings, but will generally not push into higher resolutions like 1440P without significant reductions in visual and frames-per-second performance.

Mid-TIER:

Secondly, the mid-tier, which is placed in between both entry and high tier. Always built for performance at a balanced pricepoint. Picking up a mid-level pre-built gaming PC would be the recommendation for the widest spread of PC gamers, as you will most likely find that it can be optimised not only for gaming but for many other applications such as 3D modelling, video editing or other heavy work-load programs. Mid-tier systems will generally comfortably handle AAA titles on Ultra graphics settings at 1080P resolutions at 100 plus frames-per-second, and push well into 1440P resolutions on High settings.

HIGH-TIER:

Lastly, At the other end of the spectrum, a high-tier gaming PC would be designed for an experienced PC gamer who is wanting the very best performance that can get for the money they spend. Gaming PCs within this tier are designed to be massively powerful and to be pushed to their limits. Components within these tiers could be, for example, an Intel Core i9 or AMD Ryzen 9 processor, paired with single or dual NVIDIA RTX 2000 or 3000 series graphics cards. Such systems will output 4K and even 8K gaming and application use at tremendously high framerates and should be paired with equally high-end monitors to extract the full potential of the graphical fidelity on offer. Naturally, high-tier systems attract high-tier pricepoints.

From the information we’ve given already, we can see that each tier offers a difference in terms of performance per dollar. We have our own custom pre-built gaming PCs which fit within the tiers we’ve mentioned above.

As you can see, the main differences between the base prices of each tier is due to the base processor and graphics card paired with configuration. As the tier goes up, so too do the specs of the included processor and video card, to achieve better gaming performance.


We’re hoping that this article has helped you in deciding which tier is best for you. If you’re interested in checking out our gaming desktop line and learning a bit more of what it’s like to own an Allied gaming PC, check out our gaming PCs page.
