Gaming Desktop Computers

SORT BY:
The term "gaming PC" can be misleading. These powerful computers are, indeed, optimized for gaming, but the demanding graphics and fast processing requirements typical of modern games have driven gaming computers to develop capabilities that easily transfer to other applications. Large active memory components and fast processors make this class of PCs a good choice for IT departments and general purpose home offices. Staples® carries a large selection of gaming PCs, laptops, and computer accessories for all your gaming and computing needs.

Media Editing On a Gaming PC
Audio and video production can be an important part of modern business presentations and multimedia marketing campaigns. Machines designed for gaming typically have dedicated graphics cards for accelerating video game visuals, and the extra processing power this provides allows smooth editing and film effects. Graphics cards typically have their own heat sinks, as well, which helps keep down the temperature inside the PC's housing and prevent burnout.

Memory-Intensive Applications On a Gaming PC
Gaming computers typically keep a large bank of RAM available to handle the processing demands of their CPUs. Entry-level PCs usually start with 8GB of RAM, which can expand out to 16GB as processing demands grow. Some professional models, used for simulation software and ethical hacking, need a lot more space to run memory-intensive brute force programs, and so some include multiple banks of RAM chips to create up to a 64GB cache. This can boost speeds on a slower, more affordable central processor, which can help lower the cost of the machine without sacrificing performance.

Gaming PC Accessories
The heart of a PC is in its memory and processing capacity, but all computers need accessories to function well. Gaming machines usually make use of high-resolution LED monitors and high-fidelity speakers that faithfully reproduce sounds with lifelike quality. Gaming keyboards typically have extra keys and dedicated one-touch function keys that can cut down the time needed to perform some routine functions. A gaming mouse fits comfortably in the user's hand and may have multiple keys for item selection, page scrolling, and copy or paste functions.

What Operating Systems do Gaming PCs Use?
Many gaming computers use the same Windows OS common in most office machines, though they have the hardware to run 64-bit versions of the software. Some gaming-optimized computers use Mac OS, while certain custom units use a specialized Unix or Linux operating system.

What Makes Gaming PCs Different From Other Computers?
Gaming computers differ from most other PCs by having an extra-fast processor and large supply of RAM. Gaming machines rarely use an integrated CPU, opting instead for a dedicated central processing and a separate gaming card. They commonly use extra cooling fans and may use special processor-resting software to maximize performance while keeping costs down.

What Can Gaming PCs Do?
In addition to the normal programs and apps used by regular computers, gaming machines are ideal for media editing and large program files that demand large hard drives for storage. They are also preferred by ethical hackers, who use memory-intensive cracking software to force open passwords and find security loopholes.
