It’s silly, but I’m actually in love with the two little trolley wheels on Acer’s Orion 9000 mega rig

It's the little details that really make a gaming PC special. Sure, the newly-unveiled 2020 refresh of Acer's Predator Orion 9000 mega desktop might have one of Intel's Core i9 Extreme Edition CPUS and two Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards SLI-ed together for maximum gaming frames, but it's those dinky little trolley wheels on the back of its chassis that really caught my…

I thought the PS5 design looked familiar, and apparently Zotac think so, too

We already know there are loads of PlayStation 5 games coming to PC, but now it seems the entire look of Sony's new space age console box is also borrowing a fair bit from existing PC case designs. Specifically, Zotac's MEK1 mini PC, as their Italian Facebook page recently asked fans to "spot the difference" between the two machines, and yep, I'm definitely having a…

Alienware’s Aurora R8 gaming desktop is $340 off today

Good news, American readers: an Alienware desktop is going cheap. Yes, yes, I know pre-builds aren’t for everyone, especially when we’re all locked inside and have precious little else to do except click RAM into motherboard sockets and contemplate the best way to negotiate airflow. But for some, would you believe, that doesn’t sound like fun at all, and that’s where Alienware's pre-built Aurora R8…

Lian Li put the “desk” in desktop with their mad, new motorised PCs

Enter PC case maker Lian Li's new motorised gaming desks. Dubbed the brilliantly catchy DK-04F and DK-05F, you can now gaze at the innards of your…

This terrifying gaming bed is just a toilet short of perfection

I don't know what's happened further down the timeline, but it would appear that the terrifying Acer Thronos mega chair has been overthrown by a new gaming overlord: the gaming bed. Conceived in Japan by gaming desk maker Bauhutte, this cursed concoction is actually a Power Rangers-style amalgamation of all their gaming furniture combined. Only instead of transforming into a mighty-morphin' humanity-saving mech suit, it's…

Feature: Especially when you hate buying new PCs

Everything you need to know about upgrading your PC in 2020

Some of you love building a PC. You’re well into hardware trends and technical innovations and model numbers and all of that. This is fine and valid. But a lot of players are just not interested. They love games on the PC, but the machinery itself is irrelevant. I am one of those people.I’m not totally clueless. I know some basics. I can put a…

Feature: Slaying those frames

Wired2Fire’s Predator PC is primed and ready for 1440p gaming for just under £1300

At the end of last year, I put together our official RPS Rig, which included everything you needed to build a gaming PC for less than £1000, including your monitor, mouse and keyboard and all the extra peripherals that go with a modern PC. However, many of you asked what that rig would look like if it was just the PC that cost £1000 (you…

Feature: A rad(eon) Ryzen PC

PC Specialist’s Inferno R4 is a fantastic 1440p gaming PC for just over a grand

AMD have knocked it out of the park with their RX 5700 graphics card and Ryzen 5 3600X CPU this year, and if I were looking to build a PC for just over £1000 in the next month or so, I'd probably be very tempted to put both of them inside it. After all, the RX 5700 is currently our best graphics card recommendation for…

Acer’s Thronos is an envoy from a hellish future where gaming chairs have enslaved humanity

I wish I was joking about the Acer Thronos, but this hulking all-in-one gaming-chair-come-war-machine absolutely terrifies me. I know gaming chairs are all the rage right now. Heck, you, reader, might even be sitting in one right now. But this is something else. It looks like a legit naval gun turret with a malign consciousness, and it fills me with terrible dread. Yes, its trio…

Alienware Aurora R8 review: A pint-sized RTX 2080 Ti PC

Considering it has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and an Intel Core i9-9900K inside it, Alienware's Aurora R8 gaming desktop sure is diddly. Measuring 472mm tall, 212mm wide and just 360mm deep, this sleek, 28 litre chassis is noticeably smaller than the mid-tower case I've currently got shoved under my desk. It's so small, in fact, that it can sit on top of my…

Feature: The price is so, so right

PC Specialist Apollo R1 review: A GTX 1660 gaming PC for just £700

There's no denying the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 is a great graphics card for £200 / $220. Offering 60fps speeds at High or maximum settings at 1080p, and Medium to High at 1440p, it's effectively replaced the 6GB GTX 1060 as my new best graphics card of choice for budget-conscious buyers. In terms of overall value, however, it faces stiff competition from the equally nippy…

Shadow Ghost review: A GTX 1080-powered cloud PC

It's been a while since I last looked at Blade's Shadow cloud PC service. Over a year, in fact. Since then, Blade have grown quite a bit, expanding their remit to the US and five other European countries after initially starting out in France, and today marks the release of their brand-new cloud box for sticking under your TV or monitor, the Shadow Ghost (which…

Feature: But a not so tiny(ish) price

MSI Trident X 9th review: A tiny(ish) RTX 2080 PC

Despite being part of the same series as MSI's console-like Trident 3 8th PC, the Trident X is a much more substantial kind of gaming desktop. It's much larger for starters, although its 396x383x130mm dimensions still place at the smaller end of the desktop PC scale, and its fixed base means it has to stand vertically instead of having the option to lie it on…
