Cloud Gaming Build - $500 including peripherals

14 months ago

I am getting into Cloud-Gaming and I wanted to build a desktop for this.

If you didn't know cloud gaming is basically rendering the game on a server and playing it from the server so you don't need a good or even decent pc to play games at 4K (bad explanation but anyways)

Requirements:

-must include 27" monitor & room for $40 kb&m -currency:us dollar -you can go max 30 dollars above budget but please try not to -thats all

thanks

GeForce Now I’m guessing? Consider getting a 4K monitor even if it pushes you over budget, totally worth it. Make sure you have some amazing internet also, drop a speed test and make sure you have quick ping (15-30 ms) and good download at least 50 mbps, and at least 10 mbps upload. With high ping the experience may be unbearable.

Do you need an OS?

If you do, I tried as hard as I could with Windows and could not get the price at or below $530.

Ok. This system should work fine. I've played cloud games on a dual core machine more often than not - Core i3-3217, I think? Old Asus laptop. Similar specs, this one has more RAM and better graphics AND is faster. Should have no issues.
