Quick question: Would you be happy playing a potentially visually spectacular video game at sub-HD resolution, with poor textures, blocky lightning, and choppy, un-Vsync frame rates?
We are assuming your answer is No. In a few months time, we are going to get games like Battlefield 3, RAGE, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and the lesser known OilRush, that will look to push the visual envelope beyond what we have seen a video game do. And to truly experience them in their marvelous (and sometimes 3D-lous) glory, you will need a PC that is forged by the Gods themselves, a PC so fearsome that it can wipe the aforementioned games on the floor at 60 frames per second. In short – a monster.
And guess what? We have taken upon ourselves to build such a monster, and we are calling it, quite simply, the Ultimate Gaming PC.
We have dived through the fiery depths of the hardware industry (okay, the local distributors mainly) and have spliced together some of the most monstrous hardware components that will blaze through any test, any benchmark and any engine like a bazooka to a Frostbite 2-powered building.
In the following pages you’ll find what makes this PC a monster, and we suggest you have a new pair of pants and a mop handy.
So, you ask, what are we going to do with the Ultimate Gaming PC? Like the awesome people that we are (and the distributors, too, hey) we are going to give it away.
Again. We are going to give it away.
Yup, a total of over AED 15,000 (USD 4,100) worth of stuff and we are going to just simply give it away. We will be unveiling the beast at our quarterly GameFest event on June 24, where one lucky winner will take it all in a two months long competition.
It’s not going to be an easy task, though, as we will pit you against hundreds of other gamers where only one shall stand at the end.
Are you ready for the challenge?
