Best High-End Gaming PC Build
Created by Jimmy Thang on
A 4K-capable gaming rig for under $2400.
Shopping for PC components can be intimidating if you’re not up to date on hardware news. Fortunately, we’ve done the research for you and have put together three tiered builds (cheap, mid-range, and high-end) geared to deliver great gaming experiences.
Our high-end build retails for more than two grand. While that’s expensive, it’s not overly excessive and will be able to handle max out most games at 4K with playable frame rates. You can spend more money on a gaming rig, but you’ll most likely pay a hefty price for vast diminishing returns. This rig represents a great high-end gaming PC that’s reasonable to build.
