  2. CPU: Intel or AMD?
  3. Graphics card: Nvidia or AMD?

I’ve been looking to get a new gaming rig for a couple of years now. It’s been problematic, however, to argue for purchasing an expensive piece of hardware I don’t use that much. But carpe diem, right? This Christmas I will treat myself to a spanking new (or used) gaming rig!
