A Beginners Guide To Choosing The Right Entry Level PC for Today’s Top PC Games

New to the world of PC Gaming? Not sure what you need in a gaming PC to play that game you fancy? Did you know, it is possible to play today’s modern games with a setup which won’t break the bank. Framerates may be lower than gaming on a high end system but you can still have a great experience playing the most popular titles. Let’s see how we can get you started on your PC gaming journey.

Here, we’ll run through some of the most popular modern games, and see how we can get the most from them using an entry-level gaming machine.

Entry-level systems are exactly what you need for most games, although PC gamers strive for the highest framerates possible which in turn relies on more hi-tech kit, it is not needed. Here is a guide to help you choose the best PC for your chosen game/s.

Elden Ring


Elden Ring is the must have AAA title at the moment. With 10/10s across the board, everyone wants to play Elden Ring. You can explore the open-world, with its exciting plot lines, stunning visuals and deadly bosses, collecting a range of weapons along the way to help you battle through the Lands Between. Your PC spec for Elden Ring doesn’t need to be a high spec, an entry level system will suffice. We’ve given you a range of options to configure your dream Elden Ring PC. With a AMD Ryzen 5 5600G and an Nvidia RTX 3050 Graphics card, the Elden Ring Ultra Gaming PC will handle Elden Ring with ease.



Mojang’s Minecraft has conquered the gaming world, it’s a favourite and has been for many years. People say that you can run Minecraft on just about anything but the Minecraft Infinity Gaming PC will do just nicely. The Nvidia GTX 1660 Super is more than capable of running the non-raytraced version of the game. If you have an extra few quid to spare the Nvidia RTX 3050 upgrade will have all the raytracing goodness which gamers love to see.



Fortnite, the overnight sensation, is another games which doesn’t expect the highest spec’d PC to run smoothly. Our Fortnite Ryzen Gaming PC comes with a AMD Ryzen 5 3400G as standard which is more than enough to handle anything this game can throw at it, just make sure you have a good enough internet connection to boot. Fortnight is an RTX supported game so you have options to upgrade if your wallet allows either now or later on down the line.



As Grand Theft Auto series approaches its eighth birthday it shows no signs of slowing down. The popularity for this game continues to grow as does the need for a gaming PC to play it. As GTA is an older game you can run it on modern hardware and get some great results.

In 2013 when GTA was released, 4K gaming didn’t exist so be mindful that some mods are pretty demanding. If you’re looking to enjoy a play through at high resolutions and high framerates, a new PC built with GTA in mind should provide the power you need.

Cyberpunk 2077


Cyberpunk is quite a graphic intensive game, so in order to get the best out of this game the Cyberpunk Infinity Gaming PC is what you need. With a Nvidia RTX 3060 with 12GB of VRAM it is a great system. The RTX 3060 is a member of Nvidia’s ‘Ampere’ line-up, which offers real-time raytracing. The more than generous 512GB Intel NVMe storage drive will reduce load time and help you get straight into exploring the Night City.

World of Warcraft


World of Warcraft or WoW is a game that’s increased in popularity since its release in Europe in 2005. It has come a long way and a modern PC will allow you to enjoy the game in a way that simply wasn’t possible back in the day. As standard, our Warcraft Ryzen Gaming PC comes with a 4GB Nvidia GTX 1650 included, and the dependable AMD Ryzen 5 3400 G. Whether you’re in the middle of a hectic Alterac Valley, or you’re trying to take down Sylvanas Windrunner, it will offer excellent performance.

Halo Infinite


After a 17-year break, Halo has made a long awaited return to PC. The free-to-play multiplayer platform was a massive success when it hit the PCs of the world again, seeing players splashing the cash on a new gaming rig to support the game.

Our entry-level gaming machines will offer enough power to deliver sufficient performance which is on a par, at least, with the Xbox Series S. As you may know, Halo Infinite was released without ray-tracing but sometime after, they released the capability, which brought the game to life even more so than it had at launch. A simple upgrade to the entry level PC will enable you to experience the raytracing capabilities at its best.
