Buying a new gaming PC today presents a few challenges due to the GPU shortage. We recently compared our recommended PC building specs to OEM gaming PCs. Now let's do the same comparing pre-builts to boutique PC builders.
With ongoing component shortages and insane graphics card prices, a pre-built gaming PC that gets you a new fast GPU suddenly looks like a very reasonable option that we must consider.
Choosing your next PC can be a rather daunting process. Do you go with a pre-built or build your own? Do you go with a small form factor or a full size? Today I'll be taking a look at MSI's Infinite X Gaming Desktop which should be a strong contender in the pre-built market. It's a full sized, gaming powerhouse with an impressive aesthetic to match.
HP's more modest gaming desktop is the simply named Omen Desktop, which is now available with AMD Ryzen processors inside. It's a more traditional tower-style chassis that's highly configurable, with prices ranging from just under $1,000 to over $3,200.
