Does It FINALLY Make Sense To Build A Gaming PC?

Two years…

Two years is about how long it has been since the PC hardware market went complete bonkers where there was hardly any hardware that was fairly priced for builders.

From the crypto mining craze to the pandemic affecting chip manufacturers and everything else in between… It all started about two years ago.

So now begs the question…

Is it finally a good time to build a gaming PC? Does it make sense now?

Is the graphics card market back to normal?

Are manufacturers able to keep up with the high demand?

In this post, I’d like to discuss the topic overall, to get into whether or not it makes sense to do a gaming PC build of your own now, and what the near future of hardware has in store for those of us that want to get a new build going.

60 FPS vs 144 FPS: Does Higher FPS Actually Matter?

60 FPS vs 144 FPS

I’d like to post about 60 FPS vs 144 FPS, share my experiences between the two FPS rates, and see if having 144 FPS over 60 FPS actually matters.

For me, going from 60 frames per second to 144 frames per second in gaming has changed my overall gaming experience for the long haul.

After spending a solid four years gaming at 60 FPS on my PC rig, I took the plunge to seek higher frame rates.

Upgrading my video card and monitor was not just a simple hardware change; it was also a change in the way I perceived and played my games.

As I share my personal experiences, I aim to pretty much settle the debate surrounding 144 FPS versus 60 FPS.

And no, it’s not just as simple as “144 FPS obviously better, git gud“.

Some may argue that the FPS change is negligible, while others claim it’s an undeniable game-changer.

In this post, we’ll go into the actual differences between these two average frame rates, the hardware prerequisites for achieving 60 FPS versus 144 FPS, and ultimately, answer the question of whether the upgrade to higher FPS is worth doing.

Let’s dive into the details of “buttery smooth gaming” and share whether or not the appeal of 144 FPS is, indeed, a no-brainer.
