get one for each of your friends!

If you?re looking to get into games like Titanfall, Diablo 3 and other resource-heavy titles that demand high speeds, complex graphics and intense gameplay, you need a gaming PC. Desktop setups are slightly (we use that term loosely) cheaper than laptop setups, or could give you more value for your money since it?s easier and cheaper to build a gaming desktop than buy a gaming laptop. You get higher specs, bigger displays and better cooling systems to keep your gameplay smooth.

Here at the Bitbag, we?ve put together our list of the newest and best gaming desktop PCs for anyone looking for a major upgrade or the rig that can finally start them on their e-sports career. We hope you find one near you and get to jump into New Tristram or any other game world:

  • Maingear Shift ($2772)

It sure packs a price tag at roughly $2800 but you can be sure that it can take anything you throw at it?and happily! For the rig-building buffs, this is also the best choice since you can customize and add more juice to the setup. The MSI Z87-GD65 motherboard and 750W EVGA SuperNOVA power supply are both SLI/Crossfire ready and can support an additional graphics card. There are also in-house hardware upgrades that can let you use four graphics cards at a time. What in the world would you use four cards for? Why, four displays! We?ll get out of your way now.

  • Origin Genesis ($1875-$14000)

The Origin Genesis is actually an OEM that?s won many awards. So it makes sense that the company builds on the machine?s award-winning specs and rigs it up for hardcore gaming. The original specs which are 3-GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5-4430 processor, 2GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 graphics card, 8GB of RAM and a 500GB SATA 7,200-rpm hard drive can be modified to include variable mounting, case fans, liquid cooling, an overclocked 4.8GHz Intel Extreme Core i7-4960X Hex-Core CPU, up to 64G of RAM, and up to four graphics cards ranging from the 2GB GTX 760 to the 6GB GTX Titan. The Genesis also has room for up to 34 hard drives.?That?s right, 34 hard drives. You never have to delete a game ever again.

  • Alienware X51 ($699)

If you?d notice, the two other rigs we mentioned above take up a lot of space. The Alienware X51 seeks to give users their desired gaming experience without taking up half the room. It?s practically an Xbox PC with a 3.4GHz Core i3-4130 CPU, 6GB of RAM, a 1TB SATA 7,200-rpm hard drive, and a 1GB Nvidia GTX 645 GPU. Upgrades include up to a 3.9-GHz Core i7-4770 CPU, up to 16GB of RAM and a 2GB Nvidia GTX 760 graphics card.
