Tired of consoles? Here’s how to get started with Gaming on PC.

There’s never been a better time to become a PC gamer. Not that there’s ever a bad time to become one. Perhaps you’re having trouble getting started though. Here’s the beginner’s guide to PC gaming.

Gaming Setup

The size and scale of your setup depend on how much money you have to spend – and how much you’re willing to spend. On the most basic level, you need a PC, monitor, keyboard, speakers, and headphones, an internet connection, and a monitor. Some people have two or even three monitors, but you only need one. Having multiple monitors allows you to run different screen resolutions at once or do something else while playing games. If you’re going to play online games you should consider a microphone as well.

Where to Get Games

You can’t play games if you don’t have any games to play! Steam is by far the most popular platform for PC gaming, but it isn’t the only one. Steam is fun because it offers several free games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Team Fortress 2. Steam also has plenty of sales, including the infamous Summer and Winter Sales known to empty many a bank account. If you have an Xbox, consider the Xbox app that lets you play games on either your console or computer. Epic Game Store and Good Old Games are the other two major players in digital game distribution.

Hello World

Specs are a touchy subject for PC gamers. Some prefer playing with nothing but the best. They want the latest computers and the latest graphics cards. They won’t play games if they can’t blast them at full 4K and at least 60 (if not 120) FPS. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with mid-level computers. Games look great at 1080p/60FPS. Please don’t feel that you need to go all out right away.
