Video Cards are the Most Important thing for Gamers
Nvidia GeForce has been the Front Runner in Video Gaming Power since I can remember with AMD Radeon (formally ATI Radeon)always running just behind, depending on your opinion. Thank goodness for Passmark for GPU Benchmark to help us figure out which Video Cards are the Best.
Just a CPU will not cut it for playing games these days unless it’s BubblePop, you also need a GPU. The absolute minimum is to have the GPU inbuilt the CPU like with the AMD with Radeon on chip. Discrete video chips in laptops and cards in desktops is really the way to go for everyone but beginners.
I have concerns that with a 500GB Drive someone might run out of space fairly quickly. If you want to play a lot of Massive Size games and save a lot of video, this could be a problem. With Fortnite only taking about 90GB and Valorant taking only about 30GB (for now) and streaming video instead of saving it, that really should not be a problem.
Keep in mind that only one of the Biggest Games – Call Of Duty (Black Ops Cold War – 250 GB, Modern Warfare – 231 GB) will fit on this drive at a time. …but it could easily co-exist with Fortnite and Valorent as well as World of Warcraft requires around 62.3GB. With the Awesome Power of the RTX 3060 even the most massive game will have really high frame rates.
