Why go on vacation when you can put your money into a new PC? If you’re looking for a new gaming PC, because of the ever-decreasing prices of video cards and more stock at stores or because you still haven’t been able to get your hands on a PlayStation, this BBG edition is in the right place. We’ve put together two gaming-focused systems and the third is for content creation, ideal for editing vacation photos and videos in the future.
You can get in for a reasonable price with our 1080p system. This gives you a PC that can run the latest games, albeit at a modest resolution and with double-digit frame rates. Those who want a little more can opt for the 1440p system, with which you can also play games on larger screens and with higher frame rates; we’re aiming for 144Hz screens. We divide our content creation system in two: for photo and video editors we recommend a system with a thick video card and if you are only going to edit photos, you can buy a simpler card. With both systems, respectively an RTX 3080 and an RTX 3060, you can of course also play a nice game if you wish.
As usual, the DBBG systems have been put together in consultation with the Tweakers community. In the topic on Gathering of Tweakers everyone can give their opinion about the perfect system. A few weeks before publication, the BBG team places proposals for systems in the Complete Systems & Laptops Forum† Then all forum visitors can give their opinion and discuss changes. When writing and compiling the final BBG, we start from the feedback in the above-mentioned topics, our own findings, the reviews of fellow hardware sites and the experiences of fellow tweakers on the forum and in the user reviews.
The prices of the various components are retrieved from the Pricewatch in real time and are therefore subject to change. The prices in the tables are determined at the time of publication. If a part occurs more than once in a configuration, it will be taken into account in the total price. All prices include VAT.
Note: Not all hardware combinations have been tested. Where possible we check for the correct functioning of the various parts, but we cannot guarantee that all components are 100 percent compatible.
