A new gaming PC can be a great way to use your tax refund. You can upgrade your old system, buy a new one outright, or even build your own. At Performance Computer Group, you can build some amazing PCs with that refund from Uncle Sam. Depending on the components (CPU, RAM, GPU, Disk), you can get by on a small budget or go crazy with a competition-level build. Here are three ways to use your tax refund for a new gaming PC.
If you don’t know exactly what you need, you can use the System Requirements Lab to see the games you want to play and what hardware you need to run those games.
Upgrade your old system
Your old system is finally starting to show its age. You’ve been thinking about upgrading for a while, but never had the extra cash. Now that you have your tax refund, there’s no excuse not to get a new gaming PC! A new gaming PC will let you enjoy the latest and greatest games in all their glory. With newer hardware comes better performance and increased visual fidelity.
Parts that most people consider for upgrade to really see a boost in their gaming are:
- Graphics Card (we have the latest GPUs in stock from both NVidia and AMD)
- More RAM
- Faster hard disk (like an NVMe SSD)
- A new CPU (probably the least popular, but still a good move)
Buy a new gaming PC outright
If you’re looking for the best bang for your buck when it comes to using your tax refund, buying a new gaming PC outright is the way to go. While there are a number of options available on the market, custom-built machines offer the highest level of performance and features. Plus, with a little research you can find exactly what you need to fit your budget. So whether you’re looking for a top-of-the-line system or something more modest, use that refund check to get yourself set up with a great new machine!
The main thing about our PC builds is probably how customized they are. Most of the time, the competition will create some fast computers, but they are lackluster and have no style. Soon, PCG will be starting a series of themed PC builds after pop culture icons in anime, movies, and video games. You’ll be the coolest kid on the block when you show off your new Gundam PC build.
Build your own gaming PC
There are a few things to consider before you start buying parts for your new custom gaming rig. The first thing is whether or not you actually want to build it yourself. It can be quite rewarding putting together all the pieces of your own machine, but it also requires some knowledge and time investment. If you’re not comfortable with that, there are plenty of great pre-built options available that will save you the headache. Our technicians are professional PC builders that know exactly how to build without any mistakes and make sure that cable management is clean and efficient.
