When you’re playing a fast-paced game with detailed graphics, where split-second decisions mean a win or a loss, if your computer isn’t up to par, all is lost. A gamer is only as good as his computer’s hardware. Gaming computers can process huge amounts of information while playing online role-playing games or first-person shooters. These powerful gaming computers come with high-end graphics cards and lightning fast CPUs, and in many cases they use liquid cooling.


2012 is a grand year for PlayStation 3 gamers. The console, which debuted at an incredible $499 to $599 (depending on storage capacity) with a weak initial library, has transformed into a must-have machine thanks to an attractive $249 price point, an integrated Blu-ray player, and a rich video game library that contains the best exclusive titles in the biz.

Although many of the best PS3 games are cross-platform games that are also available on the PC and Xbox 360—Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim—but the PS3 has a handful of console exclusives that make the system stand out from its competitors such as Starhawk, Twisted Metal, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

The games in this feature are distributed on physical discs, but PS3—like the Xbox 360 and PC—has a deep digital download library. The PlayStation Network (PSN) is where you can purchase new games such as the emotion-stirring Journey through your console for typically $15 or less; if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber ($17.99 for three months, $49.99 for a year) you can purchase select games at a discount, download full game trials, and get early access to demos and betas—not to mention additional content that can extend the life of many games.
