What is a gaming laptop vs. gaming PC? 

Technically, all gaming computers are PCs. PC simply stands for personal computer, which includes both desktops and laptops. However, in casual conversation, most people use gaming PC to mean a standalone desktop. These are larger models that typically need a dedicated office space. PC desktop computers for gaming tend to have more options for customization and the ability to later add upgrades. Furthermore, you can often get better deals on desktop computers for gaming.

The big benefit of gaming laptops is that they are lightweight and portable. You can take the laptop over to your friend’s home for a party or use it to get in a little gaming between classes at school. This makes it a lot easier to game on the go. Another benefit is that all the parts you need to game are included in the laptop purchase. You never have to stop and think about things like buying a monitor mount or finding enough outlets for all your speakers, monitors, and other parts.

What do you need to build a gaming PC?

Of course, there are options like CLX sets which help you get ready-made PCs with all the latest components. However, many gamers also like to build their own systems with individually selected parts. If you want to build a gaming PC yourself, you need to get some essential PC gaming gear. You will need a powerful processing tower, a keyboard, a mouse and monitor screen. For each part, check its specifications carefully. Make sure that it is powerful enough to run your preferred games, and check that it is compatible with all the other parts you are purchasing. This will ensure that you build the right gaming PC for your needs. By taking the time to research before buying, you can avoid hassles like gaming computer monitors without the right monitor mount.
