When many people think of gaming, they automatically think of gaming consoles. And, sure, many households have at least one (if not all) of the three major gaming consoles available: the Microsoft Xbox 360
, Sony Playstation 3
, and Nintendo Wii
. But for a truly connected and immersive gaming experiences desktop PCs reign supreme. Gaming PCs are more upgradable than laptops, and it's still easier to install expansion packages to PC games than on consoles. The new 120Hz monitors have heralded in a new chapter to 3D gaming, and you simply can't get all the new gaming
bells and whistles unless you have a high-powered gaming PC. That said, you don't necessarily have to buy the most expensive desktop to play the most popular games.
