This week, the first of the CES 2021 laptops are going to start hitting store shelves. And they are likely to disappear just as quickly. The new mobile CPUs are exciting, but for gaming, the GPU is the star component. The NVIDIA 3000 series are going to bring new gaming performance to laptops, but finding the right system is going to be trickier than ever.
CES 2021 is here, and that means that a lot of new tech will soon be hitting shelves. This means another wave of questions like “Do I need this computer?” coming my way. That is never an easy question to answer, but today I will try and show you when you should Update or Upgrade your Computer, and some tricks to get better performance from your system now!
So you have your CPU and GPU selections pretty much locked in. What about the rest of your computer? How much RAM do you need? What cooling is best? So many choices! Luckily, the answer is usually pretty simple, and today I will talk you through reasonable things to look for when choosing a Gaming Computer.
Next-gen consoles, new graphics cards and CPUs, gaming got really complicated quickly!

First off, the part that is always overlooked even though it shows you everything – The Monitor! The screen you want to game on should be used to tell you what type of computer you want to buy/build.
All of the buzz at the moment for consoles is the next-gen announcements and specs. But if you are looking at starting your video gaming journey, current-gen has a lot of advantages – manufacturing issues have been worked out, it’s cheaper, and at the end of a console generation, you get the best performance developers can offer for that platform.
