The Ultimate Gaming Rig

My gaming rig is 10 years old, and I’m in dire need of a replacement. But what is the ultimate gaming rig?

  2. CPU: Intel or AMD?
  3. Graphics Card: Nvidia or AMD?
  4. Form factor: Laptop or desktop?
  5. Tinkering factor: Parts or pre-assembled?
  6. Sustainability: New or second-hand?
  7. Conclusion: So what’s the ultimate gaming rig setup, then!?
