Building a new Gaming PC is probably one of the most exciting aspects of PC Gaming for enthusiasts as well as one of the most daunting at the same time. With a veritable plethora of options in almost every category users can spend literal days looking at reviews, specifications, compatibilities, and aesthetics before settling on a final build. For some of us, that is heaven. For others, it is hell. Either way, it always seems like time is short (or we just lose track of it in the process).
So, today at The FPS Review, we are putting together an Intel-based High-End Gaming PC system as an idea of what is out there and what would make for a truly enjoyable gaming experience with time for you, the reader, to spare. So sit back, relax, and take in our Intel High-End Gaming PC Build Guide for Spring 2020 to help you build a PC this spring.
With today’s Intel High-End Gaming PC Buying Guide, we are looking to hit a price point of ~$4500-6000 which is a bit more than double the budget of what we did with our Intel Enthusiast Gaming PC Build Guide recently and similar to what we saw in our AMD High-End Gaming PC Build Guide. Certainly, this is a budget number that will be accessible to a smaller group of gamers as we are looking at a system that costs as much as a small car.
Yet, in this build, we are still going to be trying to make “reasonable” choices with an Intel build that will let users have an excellent gaming experience with most everything currently on the market at all of the most common resolutions used today, but also providing some flex options for when you feel a component here or there is more than you would really need. That means, quality components are all we are going to use, but at times we will go beyond just quality to truly the best of the best. So, today, we are looking at what we would reasonably expect an Intel High-End Gaming PC Build to look like for that segment of gamers who want the performance PC of the day from team Blue. So, let’s dive in!
