4K gaming pc buying guide
4K. It’s the new standard in high-definition gaming. If you want to join the fun, then you’ll need to buy a gaming PC that’s capable of playing games at 4K without dropping frame rates.
So, to help you select the right 4K gaming PC, the CCL team has provided some of their top tips in our buying guide below.
What is a 4K gaming PC?
Put simply, a 4K gaming PC is a system which is capable of running games at 4K on an Ultra High Definition (UHD) monitor. UHD is another name for 4K.
UHD refers to a display that features 3840 x 2160 pixels.
For a long time 1080p has been the standard resolution for most computer gaming, but in recent years, mainly thanks to the rise of new graphics cards, 4K has become the ‘go-to’ resolution for gamers who want the absolute best image quality.
So, thanks to this trend more and more people are searching for ‘4K gaming PCs’.
Here at CCL we’ve designed a range of systems that are specifically designed to handle the demands of 4K gaming.
What components should a 4K gaming PC have?
In addition to having a 4K-capable monitor (which is an absolute essential), it’s recommended that a good quality 4K gaming PC will have a high-specification graphics card, sufficient memory and a quality processor.
Graphics card (GPU)
In order to properly enjoy 4K gaming you’ll need to buy a system which has a graphics card with at least 8GB of video RAM (vRAM). Remember, gaming in 4K requires four times the processing power of 1080p gaming at 60fps.
So, the better your system’s graphics card, the better your 4K gaming experience will be.
Whilst memory isn’t as important as things like the graphics card for 4K gaming, it still plays an important role in the overall functioning of your system.
To achieve a good 4K gaming experience, it’s recommended that you select a system with at least 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Having said that though, if you’re intending to be running other programs whilst gaming, or even streaming, then we’d suggest you buy a system with 32GB of DDR4 RAM.
As the ‘brain’ of your 4K gaming PC, you want to ensure you select a system with a sufficiently powerful CPU.
If you’re intending to play on a monitor with a high refresh rate, then it’s strongly recommended that you buy a system that has an excellent multi-core processor.
Using a powerful multi-core processor will also help your system get the most out of your graphics card. This is because the CPU supplies data to the GPU - and as such, will need to be able to keep up with the data demands from the GPU.
Ensure that you have at least those three components sorted and you’ll have a gaming PC that’s more than capable of great 4K action.
How much does a 4K gaming PC cost?
With 4K gaming becoming an increasingly important part of the gaming market, the overall cost of 4K gaming PCs continues to fall.
However, 4K gaming PCs do definitely remain in the ‘premium’ or ‘high-end’ category of gaming PCs. This is because, as you have seen above, 4K gaming requires systems to have high-performance graphics cards, CPUs and memory.
Here at CCL we offer excellent value 4K gaming PCs, starting from around £1,500 all the way up to £5,000 or more.
What monitor should you use with a 4K gaming PC?
This is arguably the most important thing when it comes to buying a 4K gaming PC.
If you want to get the most out of your 4K gaming PC, then you’ll want to select a monitor that will be able to produce the very best visuals and performance.
However, there are an unbelievably large array of options when it comes to selecting a 4K monitor.
Things you will need to think about, include:
- Screen size/aspect ratio.
- Panel types.
- Refresh rate.
- Response time.
- FreeSync and G-Sync.
- Peripheral ports.
