Selecting a Prebuilt Gaming Computer

Gaming computers come in all shapes and sizes, and depending on the games you like to play, can have very different configurations. When choosing a gaming PC, the first decision you will need to make is if you will build it yourself or buy a prebuilt machine.

The benefit of building your own PC is that it is customizable, but finding parts and ensuring compatibility can be an added challenge. Not to mention, the act of actually building the PC creates the opportunity for user error or annoying form factor obstacles. Prebuilt gaming PCs come ready to go out of the box and are made with components and features — such as the motherboard, hard drive, power supply, liquid cooling components, SSD, etc. — that are known to work together.

Because prebuilt gaming PCs are already assembled, you can rest assured that an expert technician put together the prebuilt PC with extreme care and attention to detail. Suppose you ever have problems with a PC build or have questions about where to go next. In that case, you can always check in with the professionals at Micro Center's Service Department.

Do You Need a Gaming Computer?

If you’ve never owned a gaming PC before, you may be asking yourself if you actually need one. The reality is that for serious or even entry-level dabblers, a gaming computer ensures optimal gaming performance and ensures that you get long-term use out of your build. Gaming computers allow you to experience the best visuals and provide more technically challenging gameplay.

Gaming computers are powerhouse machines capable of playing modern titles at the highest frame rates and resolutions available. This is made possible by the high-end components found within gaming desktops. Top of the line graphics cards and processors combine perfectly to create the smoothest gaming experience possible. These PCs typically feature solid state drives (SSD) that ensure fast load times and an overall improved gaming experience.

Select Your Prebuilt Gaming PC by GPU or CPU

Just because you’re opting to go the prebuilt route doesn’t mean you have no choices of customization. You will want to start by selecting which GPU (graphics card) or CPU (processor) you prefer. Most commonly you'll find GPUs based on architecture from either NVIDIA or AMD, both of which offer premium performance ideal for gamers.

Micro Center proudly offers warranty-backed prebuilt options with the best NVIDIA and AMD GPUs, including NVIDIA GeForce GTX 3050, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 ti, GeForce RTX 3070, and more. We also offer the most popular options by AMD, including powerful prebuilt options with the AMD Radeon RX series, including the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT. Whether you’re looking for something featuring the popular NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 or want to try out the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card, we’ve got you covered at Micro Center.

The graphics card isn’t the only thing to consider when selecting your computer. You’ll also want to check out the processors in each one of our gaming laptops or desktops. Choose from either an AMD or Intel processor for your gaming computer. We offer builds featuring AMD Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7, Ryzen 9, and more as well as Intel processors such as the Intel Core i5, Intel Core i7, and Intel Core i9.

Industry leading brands such as NVIDIA and AMD both have a wide range of GPUs available that can be bought individually or as a part of a prebuilt machine. For gamers just starting out or anyone looking to build their gaming desktop over a long time, there are even some processors with integrated graphics that can be enough to play less resource intensive games when paired with high speed RAM and storage. In these cases, graphics cards can be added later to increase the machine's performance to wherever desirable.

Don’t Forget Gaming Peripherals

Don't forget that along with internal components, you will need some extra peripherals to fully utilize your gaming PC, such as a headset, a gaming monitor, a gaming keyboard, and a gaming mouse. Some prebuilt gaming PCs may come with a mouse or keyboard to help save with initial costs. Like any other component of a gaming computer, peripherals can be switched out at any time for repairs or to customize your PC further.

In addition to hardware peripherals, Micro Center also gladly outfits our gaming PCs with essential software and WiFi enhancements so it’s ready for gameplay and regular use right out of the box. Choose from a wide variety of PCs pre-loaded with your operating system, antivirus software, and even office suites.

Reminder: Just because your prebuilt gaming PC is powerful enough to render the most impressive gameplay doesn’t mean you can’t also use it for basic work and daily tasks. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that your PC comes with comfortable, ergonomic peripherals and the right software to help you make the most use out of your investment.
