Mini-ITX Game PC - May 2017

The Mini-ITX Game PC is a desktop computer that is small enough to be portable, but has better performance than a gaming notebook. Previous time, we built a compact system that offered almost the same performance as a full-fledged gaming rig, but this time we try to keep the cost low for Full HD gaming. Please note: the PC Buyer’s Guide is compiled based on independent component tests performed by Hardware.Info. If no new, superior products are released that should replace one or more of the components, then the component(s) will remain the same as the previous month. If you want to know more about how we compile our PC Buying guides, have a look at this article.

    4K Gaming PC - May 2017 4K monitors are getting cheaper and cheaper, while their sharpness can't be matched by normal displays.

This is the first native 240Hz gaming monitor available on the market. Both devices are meant for different target audiences, although one thing is certain: Benq is focusing on the power users.
