This extreme gaming PC build will give you a machine with the power to take on any modern game, on the highest graphical settings, with no compromises. I mean, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 or Cyberpunk 2077 can bring any machine to its knees, but this gaming PC won’t flinch in the face of 4K. You probably don’t need to be told that this build is going to cost a pretty penny—it takes the best CPU for gaming as well as the best graphics card and squeezes the best possible performance out of both.
Handling those high-end components might seem a little scary, especially if this is your first build, so you might want to have a look at our guide on how to build a gaming PC before you go any further. You have noticed that some components like GPUs and CPUs are getting a little hard to come by these days. We are checking every day to see which online retailers have the good in stock. You may want to consider picking up a pre-built system since system makers seem to be the only ones who have stock on anything.
This extreme gaming PC build aims to squeeze every last drop of performance out of your set-up and will allow you to stream, record, and edit your gameplay without compromise. This is the machine that will let you play your favourite games in 4K, heck even 8K, with all your settings cranked up.
It’s often tempting to throw money at a prebuilt, especially if you’re going for something high-end. Picking up an extra graphics card or adding more RAM is undoubtedly an option, but there does come the point where the added cost will far outweigh the gains. We are building an extreme gaming PC, and as it is, this build will cost you over $4,500, but it will produce some incredible frame rates, even at 4K. If that price seems a little too extreme for your budget, you might want to take a look at our high-end PC build guide instead.
You should also note, the mentioned above $4,500 we quoted doesn’t include any peripherals or accessories. If you need to cut costs to pick up a monitor or a fancy gaming headset, you can always go for a smaller SSD or slower RAM, which can be easily upgraded down the road.
Lastly, it’s tough to get hold of these exact products right now. If you manage to peek at some available stock of a like-for-like product, you should absolutely go for it.
