      Default The best gaming PC 2019: 10 of the top gaming desktops you can buy

      You’re going to want one of the best gaming PCs on your side, if you’re even remotely serious about gaming. Even if you’re far from turning pro, you’ll need a bit of firepower, especially when you’re playing the newest, greatest and most demanding PC games. After all, gaming should be immersive, and there’s nothing that can ruin your gaming experience more than having below average internals that aren’t powerful enough.

      In fact, if you’re planning on playing the latest and upcoming AAA games, you must get one of the best gaming PCs packed with the most cutting edge internals possible like Nvidia’s Super RTX graphic cards or AMD’s Navi cards. Of course, just because a gaming PC is that powerful, that doesn’t mean it’ll cost you an arm and a leg. There are quite a few out there touting the best processors and best graphics card, alongside a price tag that’s affordable to many. You just have to scour the market to find them.

      To cut through the overwhelming options out there, we’ve put together a list of the best gaming PCs you can get right now, all of which we’ve personally reviewed. There’s a variety of options to check out on this list, whether it’s from stalwarts like Alienware or newer firms like Corsair.

      What you need to know about Black Friday 2019
      Gaming PCs can be very expensive purchases, so if you're keen on taking the sting out of the price tag a bit, a good idea is to shop around Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This is because many retailers slash the prices of gaming desktop PCs during those events, which can save you a decent amount of money. Look out for special offers that bundle free games in as well, as that's another great way of keeping the costs of upgrading to a new gaming PC relatively low. If you're after something more portable, check out our Black Friday laptop deals page where we'll be rounding up all of the best offers throughout November.

      Origin Millennium

      1. Corsair One i160
      The best gaming PC of 2019

      CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti | RAM: 16GB – 32GB | Storage: 480GB SSD + 2TB HDD

      The Corsair One has been among the best gaming PCs ever since it came on the scene a few years ago, and the Corsair One i160 only takes things to the next level with Nvidia Turing graphics and Intel Coffee Lake Refresh processors. This gaming PC can handle 4K gaming in a chassis that’s not much bigger than your average gaming console. It’s pricey – that much power kind of has to be – yet it’s certainly worth it if you’re looking for a small form factor machine without compromises.

      2. HP Omen Desktop PC
      Gaming PC powerhouse that’s worth the price

      CPU: Intel Core i7-8700 – i7-9700K | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti – RTX 2080 Ti | RAM: Up to 64GB | Storage: 1TB HDD – 512GB SSD + 2TB HDD

      While the Decepticon look this gaming PC sports might only be for some, there’s definitely something for everybody as far as configurations go – whether you’re a casual gamer on a budget or a hardcore one willing to drop a lot of dough for a souped up rig. At less than $1,500 (about £1,180, AU$2,170), you’re getting more than enough power to get you through AAA games, albeit probably not on Ultra. At $2,335 (about £1,835, AU$3,235) or more, you’re getting a considerable amount of power and storage. Plus, HP Omen Desktop PC comes in a tool-less design, making it upgradeable. There isn’t any doubt that this one belongs on our best gaming PCs list.

      3. Alienware Aurora R8
      Perfect entry into high-end gaming

      CPU: Intel Core i7 8700 – Intel Core i9 9900K | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 – RTX 2080 Ti | RAM: 8GB – 32GB | Storage: 1TB HDD – 2TB SSD, 2TB HDD

      The Alienware Aurora R8 can cost a pretty penny, especially if you’re getting one of the souped up configurations. But this stunner of a gaming machine gives you the latest and greatest inside, delivering an excellent and immersive gaming experience in a cool-looking chassis with appealing RGB lighting. If you’re more than a casual gamer who needs a setup that can tackle 1440p and even a bit of 4K gaming, this is one of the best gaming PCs on the market today.

      4. Intel Hades Canyon NUC
      CPU: Intel Core i7 | Graphics: Radeon RX Vega M GL – GH | RAM: up to 64GB | Storage: up to 2TB SSD, 2TB SSD

      If you’re looking for the best gaming PC under $1,000, the Intel Hades Canyon NUC may just be your dream machine. This teeny gaming PC isn’t just cost-effective, but space-saving as well. In fact, it resembles a set-top box more than a gaming PC. Don’t let its size fool you, however – it houses all the power that the best gaming laptops should to handle the best laptop games, with an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor and discrete AMD Radeon graphics. You’ll have to provide your own RAM, storage and your own OS, but if you have extra PC hardware lying around, there are still plenty of savings to be had.

      5. HP Omen Obelisk

      This rectangular monster is definitely worthy of its moniker as it boasts lots of power… more than enough, in fact, for most gamers’ needs. When you’ve the funds for an upper-tier configuration, you’ll get a behemoth. Unfortunately, budget minded buyers will have to be satisfied with gameplay at medium settings, since the lower end models don’t pack the same firepower. Still, because of its high upgradability and tool-less design, such buyers are only an upgrade or two from the best gaming experience on Ultra or Max settings either. Plus, we’ve honestly seen more expensive machines for those specs.

      6. Origin Millennium
      CPU: Intel Core i5 9600K – AMD Ryzen 9 3900X | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 – Hydro X Cooled NVIDIA GeForce RTX Titan | RAM: 32GB | Storage: 250GB – 4TB SSD

      When you grab a new machine from Origin, it’s almost like you’ve built it yourself. But, you do have to be acquainted with PC components to decide for yourself what goes into the rig and how much money you’re willing to spend. So, our only real criticism of the Origin Millennium is that you can put together a similar gaming PC yourself and save hundreds of dollars. On the other hand, because of its svelte design and flexible specs – not to mention, the convenience, we bet you won’t even want to.

      7. Alienware Area 51 Threadripper Edition

      CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2920X – 2950X | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti – Dual Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti | RAM: 8GB – 64GB | Storage: 2TB HDD – 2TB SSD; 2TB HDD

      In true Alienware fashion, the Area 51 Threadripper Edition pushes the boundaries of both technology and your bank account. It’s extremely powerful, distinctly boasting the latest AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X across all of its configurations. The Area 51’s triad-design hasn’t altered much since its release back in 2014, but the inside of this desktop is basically tool-less to upgrade, not that you would even need to consider it’s already one of the best gaming PCs of 2019.

      8. MSI Trident X

      CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K – i9-9900K | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 – 2080 Ti | RAM: 16GB | Storage: 512GB SSD – 512GB SSD, 2TB HDD

      It was only a matter of time before the best gaming PCs started rolling out with the newest Coffee Lake Refresh and Nvidia Turing parts, and the MSI Trident X was the one to lead the charge. This small chassis PC doesn’t pull any punches, and will absolutely demolish any game you throw at it, at any resolution. Just remember that the thin metal build is a little flimsy for travel, and its price tag is a bit hefty. However, if you’re seeking no-holds-barred power that will fit right in your living room, you can’t do much better than this

      9. Corsair Vengeance 5185 Gaming PC
      CPU: Intel Core i7-8700 | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 | RAM: 2x8GB DDR4-2666 | Storage: 480GB M.2 NVMe SSD – 2TB 7200RPM 2.5” HDD

      True to its name, the Corsair Vengeance 5185 will, without a doubt, get you back in the game, if your existing PC has been holding you back. This highly-customizable gaming PC is among the best gaming PCs out there with its powerful components, massive storage space and an effective cooling system that keeps that heat down. A fan of RGB lighting? This has no shortage of that, all wrapped in a tempered glass chassis that’s just the ticket for showing those innards off.

      10. Dell G5 Gaming Desktop
      CPU: 9th Gen Intel Core i3-9100 – i9 9900K | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 – RTX 2070 | RAM: 8GB – 64GB | Storage: 1TBSSD – 1TB SSD + 2TB HDD

      A unique chassis coupled with a price to beat, Dell’s latest in its G series gaming PCs is a solid contender in budget gaming. The Dell G5 boasts 9th-generation Intel chips as well as Nvidia’s most powerful gaming GTX and RTX graphics cards, starting with an i3 processor and the GTX 1650 to handle many powerful games without burning a whole in your pocket. Of course, if you’ve got more case to spare, it’s VR ready configurations are also on hand, though even those are absolutely affordable.
