If you’re one of those people who believe PCs are dead then you couldn’t be more wrong. In fact, recent years have shown developers almost harbouring a new found respect for die hard PC pundits. With that in mind lets take a look at some of the world’s most powerful PC components that will hopefully get you in stones throw of a Large Pixel Collider.
1) CPU-Intel Core i7-5960x
A great way to start off this list about the world’s most powerful PC components would be to kick it off with the worlds first 8 core processor available to the general public. Running on the latest Intel Haswell Core architecture (first displayed by the Ivy Bridge processors) this chip is spendings dads Hyper Threading credit card on 16 threads of processing power. So as you probably guessed it, this thing goes through benchmarks like its swatting a fly.
2) GPU – GeForce GTX Titan X
At $999.99 you better check with your wife before treating yourself to this Greek deity. Packing an earth shattering 12GB of GDDR5 memory that almost wants to make me rename this list the world’s most powerful PC components – OVERKILL EDITION. So if you’re into the habit of future proofing (or over compensating) then make sure you pick up this beast of a pixel smasher.
3) Motherboard – ASUS Rampage V Extreme
Behind every great PC there is a great motherboard, in this case we’re talking about the ASUS Rampage V Extreme – a staple item on any world’s most powerful pc component list. This motherboard comes bearing gifts, so many gifts in fact that it has to use an extended ATX form factor (keep that in mind when buying a case) to house its PCIe slot configuration for the purpose of 4-way Crossfire or SLI. Word on the street is that it also contains a flurry of overclocking features unavailable on any other motherboard out there!
4) SSD – Intel SSD 750 Series 1,2TB
If you’ve gotten this far then you’ve probably come to the conclusion that price was not at all a concern for me whilst writing this piece. I mean, you are reading a list on the world’s most powerful PC components after all.
This means it shouldn’t come as a shock to you when I say that this fan favourite SSD from Intel clocks in at a hefty $1,079 (a price that Newegg poignantly referred to as their ‘lowest price’. Frugality aside, this SSD has all the bells and whistles that modern consumers are used to, all while removing the bottlenecks that were commonly experienced when dealing the previous gens interfaces. So if you want to be able to boot your PC up and run a Cinebench benchmark every morning for fun before you play Minecraft then this SSD is right up your incessantly strange alley.
5) Monitor-Acer XR341CK
This one was a little trickier to choose because at the end of the day the competition is pretty ripe in the monitor game and all it comes down to is the personal preferences such as style when choosing your display option. I’ve opted for this Acer 34′ ultra wide curved model because I like my monitors like I like my women, with an aspect ratio of 21:9 (don’t judge me). The wideness coupled with the curved factor makes for an insanely immersive experience. Also, with its 75Hz IPS panel and FreeSync it is sure to win the favour of many a gamer (excuse the unintentional rhyming).
I hope you’ve enjoyed my list on the world’s most powerful PC components available today!
