The fact is that computing needs exist because mobile devices like laptops and tablets can't fulfill them. Desktop-class CPUs and graphics processors are simply more powerful than their mobile counterparts for the same money. You can finish your working in less time by computer which are less expensive in general than laptop.

You can get desktops with screens that are already built in, or they can be connected externally to a monitor. In either case, you're almost guaranteed to have a bigger display than even the largest desktop-replacement laptop, which tops out at about 18 inches in size.

Another plus is that expandable desktops can accommodate multiple graphics cards to support more than two simultaneous displays. All in all, buying a desktop PC is very worth but what is the best choice for you?

1. BEST PC: Dell XPS Tower Special Edition

The latest XPS Tower Special Edition ecially interesting in that it’s more compact than ever. Dell has packed in both 8th-generation Intel’s Coffee Lake processors and Nvidia’s 10-series graphics cards, making it virtual reality-ready and powerful enough to game even when hooked up to a ridiculously sharp monitor. On the top, every XPS Tower Special Edition now comes with 2,666MHz memory that’s a major step up from the previous 2,133MHz RAM onboard previous iterations.

The XPS Tower looks so formal, you might think Dell accidentally shipped one of its Precision enterprise desktops. However, we actually love the look of this clean, minimalistic aesthetic. The front cover of the desktop is made up of one contiguous solid sheet of aluminum, whose only accents are a Dell and XPS logo. Meanwhile, the rest of the body is fashioned from a plastic painted in semi-glossy black with a band of ribbed texture towards the back of the PC case.

2. Best gaming PC: Alienware Aurora R6

The Alienware Aurora R6 is an excellent gaming PC that offers brilliant performance in a conveniently compact body. The affordable price is pretty great as well, considering the power on offer and users itching for upgrades will have room to pick up a second graphics card, plus more RAM and storage.

The Alienware Aurora R6 sits between Alienware’s Alpha range of affordable and compact PCs and the high-end Alienware Area 51 (we just reviewed the Threadripper Edition). While this puts the Aurora R6 in the mid-range of Alienware’s offerings, don't be fooled into thinking this is simply a middle-of-the-road gaming machine.

It combines everything we’ve come to expect from Alienware’s devices, including powerful components and an eye-catching design.

3. Best all-in-one PC: Microsoft Surface Studio

A fantastic, enormous all-in-one that's much more than an iMac wannabe but the price means it’s for professionals only. However, once you lay eyes on the Surface Studio it’s understandable. This is the very definition of a boutique system, and that’s not just down to the decidedly exclusive price tag.

The most impression is an enormous 28in touchscreen that’s even larger than it sounds. The Surface Studio’s unique 4,500 x 3,000 resolution provides room enough to view and edit 4K video at native resolution, and while its 192ppi pixel density is a little coarser than the 218ppi of the 5K iMac, it has the advantage of what Microsoft calls “True Scale”, so at 100% magnification, text and documents should print at exactly the size they appear onscreen.

What’s more, the fully-articulating stand makes it a versatile tool for work and play with Surface Pen support. All in all, the Surface Studio is an exceptional work of, and for, art.

4. Best budget PC: HP Pavilion Wave

The Pavilion Wave is coming with a super fancy Bluetooth speaker. It measures 6.81 x 6.62 x 10.29 inches and is arranged vertically in a rounded, triangular, cylinder orientation. The whole device is wrapped in thick-threaded fabric that you would normally find on a subwoofer or fancy all-in-one speaker.

This compact Windows machine packs in 6th-generation Intel Core processors and optional discrete AMD graphics with a uniquely integrated Bang & Olufsen speaker. Wrapped in a handsome fabric exterior, this is the perfect PC to have on the desk, as it radiates crisp sound while you browse the web or watch movies.


The good desktop PC is impossible to be killed by currently huge development of laptop. Desktop PCs lets you control who sees confidential business data, and the combination of a desktop PC and a large screen means that parents can monitor what their children are doing online via a quick glance across the room.


If you are technology lover or just simply curious about exactly what makes your computer run the way it does, making up your own computer can bring you the answer.

All you need to build your first computer is the right set of parts, a screwdriver, and some patience.Here are the components you’ll need to build your first gaming PC.

Computer CPU's (processors)

CPU is considered as computer’s brain or central processing unit. It controls the number of tasks your computer can accomplish at once and how quickly it can complete said tasks. The top one right now is the Intel Core i9-7980XE with 18 cores at $1999. The 18-core processor is a showstopper.

Single- and multi- core performance is staggering and there’s even more potential in overclocking. This features 24.75 MB of Smart Cache, support for up to 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes, quad channel memory, and a 165W TDP. 

In addition, it also features a base clock frequency of 2.60 GHz that turbos up to 3.4 GHz across all 18 cores when under full load. This processor truly stretches the limits of Intel’s Skylake X architecture and amazingly it all fits in a package that’s more or less half the width of Ryzen Threadripper.

1. Motherboard

The motherboard houses the various components of your gaming PC. Like a flesh-and-blood mother, it takes the disparate pieces, sits them down in their proper places, and helps them behave well together. The Core i9 motherboard is a new generation of Intel to match with new generation of Intel Extreme Edition. It is called an X299 motherboard using uses Socket R4, a 2,066-pin LGA socket.

2. Memory

Random access memory, or RAM, allows computers to access files quickly and run multiple processes at once without lagging. If using X299 chip sets, you need at least 16GB RAM. Corsair Dominator Platinum 128GB with 3,800 MHZ is a good choice at 1,960 USD or you can choose Vengeance LPX DDR4 16GB 4.400 MHz with cheaper price at 430 USD.

3. Graphics processing unit

The graphics processing unit, also known as the GPU, graphics card, or video card, is a pretty flashy component. Currently NVidia Titan Xp 12GB is highly recommended with price of 1200 USD. It’s built on a new GP102 graphics processor featuring 3584 CUDA cores, backed by 12GB of GDDR5X memory on a 384-bit bus. Titan X’s specification cites a 1417 MHz base clock, with typical GPU Boost frequencies in the 1531 MHz range. That gives the card an FP32 rate of 10.1+ TFLOPS, which is roughly 23% higher than GeForce GTX 1080. The processor’s back-end grows to include 12 32-bit memory controllers, each bound to eight ROPs and 256KB of L2 (as with GP104), yielding a total of 96 ROPs and 3MB of shared cache. This results in a 384-bit aggregate path, which Nvidia populates with 12GB of the same 10 Gb/s GDDR5X found on GTX 1080.

4. Storage

There are a lot of options you can take. You can buy either a hard drive or a solid-state drive (SSD). Some sources recommend combining a lower-end SSD with a hard drive for the best of both worlds. But if you can cover your storage needs with an SSD alone, it may be helpful to go this route, as these drives can halve loading times, no problem.

5. Desktop


Desktop is one of the most important component of PC. Currently, The Acer Predator XB271HK is just one of three models that made the best 4K gaming monitors list. It got incredible 4K gaming performance and a surprising amount of color accuracy, but is held back by its clunky settings menu and higher-than-average price point at 869.99 USD.

6. Power supply

It is necessary to harness the power of electricity to bring your PC to life. This is where a quality power supply unit, or PSU, comes into play. Avoid settling for the cheapest PSU to plug into your new machine. If you buy nice components, but penny-pinch for your power supply, you may find that you’ve literally torched your investment.
