OUR RECOMMENDED 2021 GAMING PC

The global supply of PC parts is finally returning to normal, 2021 has been a crazy year for PC builders. 

This PC is the standard recommended setup for anyone building a PC in 2021. This is a system designed to maximise the longevity of your investment and provide plenty of upgrade options along the way. Most importantly our Gaming PC doesn’t cut any corners at all. 

This recommended gaming PC will give you the best long term “bang for buck” PC gaming experience in either 1080p or 1440p configurations, and includes the following:

// CPU

  • AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, 6 Core 12 Thread, 3.6GHz Base, 4.2GHz Boost. This CPU is excellent at gaming and awesome at any video-editing / photoshop work you want to throw at it.

// RAM

  • T-Force Dark Z 16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHz CL16 DDR4. Unlike intel systems, AMD CPUs really respond well to fast RAM. We fin that 3200MHz is the sweet spot for balancing performance and price.

// 1080p GRAPHICS CARD*

  • GeForce RTX 3060 or 3060Ti typically MSI, ASUS. The RTX 3060 series is the ultimate card at 1080p and can also play well (60fps) at 1440p.

// 1440p GRAPHICS CARD*

  • Radeon RX 6800 or RTX 3070 typically MSI, ASUS. If you really want to get frames above 60fps on a 1440p monitor you’ll need the extra grunt of an RTX 3070 or RX 6800.

// MOTHERBOARD

  • B550 chipset with Wi-Fi typically ASUS, MSI or GIGABYTE. The B550 series of AMD RYZEN motherboards have a bright future full of upgrade options. The embeded WiFi and Bluetooth are just the icing on the cake.

// CPU COOLER

  • Deepcool Gammaxx GT ARGB CPU Cooler or similar. At this level of gaming there is no need for water cooling. A nice quality air cooler with at lest 4 contact heat pipes can keep your system running cool without sounding like an aircraft carrier. Super easy to maintain and clean also .

// BOOT DRIVE

  • NVMe M.2 SSD 1000GB (1TB) Kingston, Crucial or Samsung. NVMe SSDs are crazy fast we are talking read/write speeds up to 2,100/1,700MB/s. Thsi means your games and levels have a drastically reduced load times.

// CASE*

  • Lian Li Lancool 215 Mesh A-RGB Case
  • MetallicGear Neo Air D-RGB Mid Case
  • Corsair iCUE 220T RGB Airflow TG Mid Tower We only ever choose cases with un-obstructed front air intakes and full powder coating. This means they’ll survive life on the coast of NSW where metal corrosion and super hot summer temps are a thing that can kill your gaming PC fast.

// Power Supply

  • 650W or 800W Gold rated power supply. Phanteks, Seasonic or Super Flower. We only use gold rated power supplies. If any sort of power supply issue happens with your house. Its the PSU that will take the damage and shield your PC from the worst of it.

// included services

  • Windows install, and registration.
  • Testing and optimisation with the latest BIOS, drivers and OS updates.
  • Lifetime phone / email tech support. For your Gaming PC (not IT in general) 
  • Minimum 2Yr parts and labour warranty. Many parts in your PC will have a warranty much longer than 2 years. PSUs for example sometimes have a 5year warranty. 

*Parts may change slightly due to availability, we will discuss options with you when the order is placed. The global graphics card shortage is also blowing out prices.

THIS IS A "REAL WORLD" GAMING PC

PC Gaming is the highest form of “enthusiast grade” gaming. It is not uncommon for top end gaming PCs to cost $3.5k or more. But this high price does not necessarily reflect a doubling or tripling in the amount of enjoyment to be had. We focus or build specs on what really matters. 

Our recommended system sets you up for an excellent long term gaming experience, spending the larger portion of the PC budget on the graphics card, CPU and RAM. As together they are most important part of any gaming system. 

This leaves the rest of the budget for core components specially selected for their ability to handle the erratic Central Coast NSW environment.

WE KNOW WHAT ITS LIKE TO LIVE ON THE COASTLINE OF NSW

Welcome to the coast! In the summer you have heat and humidity and in the winter you can get mould and damp.
Not to mention the salt, that can completely corrode your system within 3 months if you live close (view distance) to one of our excellent beaches.
These conditions are not good for high end PC components. Your brand new gaming PC can have its lifetime seriously reduced if the mould / damp / salt / heat gets inside your case.

Fortunately we design and build our gaming systems with these conditions in mind, giving the maximum life expectancy and easy maintenance options your new gaming PC.
