What is the best type of PC for gaming?

Mar 1, 2023
I have a passion for mobile gaming, but I've been itching to try PC games. However, I'm not quite sure what kind of computer I need to purchase if I'm going to play, especially these games.

-Elden Ring
-Neon White
-Dying Light 2 Stay Human
-OlliOlli World
-Total War: Warhammer III
-Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge

-God of War 4
-Monster Hunter Rise

Could you kindly assist me in selecting the appropriate hardware by providing some advice on what specifications I should be looking for?

Hi :) First you're going to have to at least provide us with your location and a maxiumum budget for the build.

Would you be willing to learn to put it together yourself or do you want to buy something pre built.?

Do you need the system to be portable?

Do yòu have a monitor already or do you need one included in the budget?

Do you have a mouse and keyboard or are they included in the budget as well?

Once you come back with more info we can see about helping further.

I've tried buying a gaming system in my country, but unfortunately, it didn't work out and I ended up wasting my money and stick to mobile games instead. But, I'm thinking about buying one from other country or online. I'm looking for a pre-built system that's portable and can handle games smoothly. I also need a monitor, mouse, and keyboard, but that's all within my budget. I'm willing to spend a bit more if it means I'll have an amazing gaming experience.

Thanks for the build by the way.

Portable only really comes as a laptop, that I don't necessarily recommend unless you absolutely need to move it all of the time. Price to performance and durability is much better with desktop parts.

We would need to know what country you are in, or what stores you would like to buy from at least if we are going to recommend a system for you to buy.

I'm from New Zealand, and I'm really bad when it comes to purchasing items. So, I'm not sure where to buy a good PC, and I would really appreciate it if you could give me some advice for this silly problem of mine
Welcome to the forum :)

I would really appreciate it if you could give me some advice
I'm sure Kaamos would also really appreciate it if you would answer his questions, so he can offer good advice.

I can assure you there isn't any better country than NZ for buying computers, or most other goods. You can have a bad experience anywhere, especially if you don't answer the seller's questions. My advice is to buy in NZ and save a fortune on shipping costs, plus have some recourse if there's anything wrong with the machine when you get it.

Thanks for the build by the way
ETA: That isn't advice, that's his own PC :)

@WanderDumb this outfit has stores all over NZ. Ask them if they build you a PC if you order the components from them and if they don't start calling around to local PC/laptop repair shops and find one that will build your PC for you for a fee if you bring them down the components. This way you know exactly what you're getting.
