The best gaming PCs

With hundreds of components and thousands of possible combinations, choosing a new gaming PC can be a difficult process. This chart will help you by suggesting which NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics card and PC is right for you.

Please note that this chart offers suggestions only, your individual needs and demands could differ from our recommendations. For each game we'll provide three recommendations based on the quality of the experience you'll have when playing the game - Good, Better or Best graphics.

By experience we mean the quality of the graphics and the frame rate that you will experience. A fast frame rate is crucial as it means the on-screen action is smooth and seamless, while a slow frame rate means the on-screen action is jerky and irregular, making aiming weapons impossible. Also bear in mind what resolution gaming monitor you want to game on – a higher resolution monitor makes games look sharper and clearer – but requires a more powerful graphics card. The following table shows what quality settings and resolutions the most popular NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics cards have been optimised for.
