If you’re looking for a PC upgrade this year ahead of the hot game releases then you’re going to want one of the best rigs on the market that can cope with the high performance you expect with a top graphics card and less likely to overheat. Here we look at some of the top PC gaming rigs on the market for your consideration.

Overclockers Asteroid

The newest Overclockers machine is probably one of the best-designed gaming PC’s you’ve ever seen, complete with bespoke water-cooling, a great colour scheme and keen attention to detail. With its great design comes class-leading performance both in games and applications plus it is never too hot or too loud. The only downside is that this unit is very expensive and quite niche with limited upgrade potential. If you’re a gamer looking for an attractive gaming PC that can handle anything from 4K gaming to VR, the Asteroid is insanely powerful and well worth investing in if you’ve been saving up or stumble across a lottery win.

Alienware Area 51

Many PC manufacturers go the extra mile to present their consumers with great looking custom chassis designs but the Area 51 may well trump them all. Resembling a pentagon when viewed from the side with a soft blue glow and the components are angled for easier access plus the entire design is incredibly funky. The entry level model comes with a liquid cooled overclocked processor and AMD graphics. It is optional for configurations with dual Nvidia GeForce cards although you’ll need to dig deep to afford them.

Cyberpower Trinity 300

This set-up provides a DeepCool Tristellar Gaming case and places the components into a three-winged chassis with a striking appearance and a whole lot of performance to boast about too. This rig has an Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 video card alongside an Intel Corei7-5820K processor. The only downside is the unit doesn’t come as standard with overclocked processor but you can add this on for a small additional cost.

Asus Republic Of Gamers G20AJ

Right here, this is a tower PC that means business. The G20AJ carries the Republic Of Gamers branding that is only reserved for top-end gaming products with the signature black and red design. This tower comes complete with a high-end GeForce graphics card, fast Intel core 17 Haswell processor and both as SSD and hard disk. It doesn’t matter how old you get, you’re never too old to enjoy coloured flashing lights on a gaming rig. Asus have also showed off a special edition og the machine that can squeeze in a Titan X for massive power.

MSI Nightblade Mini Gaming PC Phoenix

The sleek Nightblade comes in a MicroATX chassis allowing it to be more portable which come is useful if you regularly take your PC to LAN parties. Plus with red illumination underneath it may well remind you of KITT from Knight Rider, and that’s always a good thing. Beefier configurations are available, as standard this unit comes with a GeForce GTX 960 allowing this machine to offer a top gaming performance in a very small box.
