What computer to buy for games? Which processor to choose? Which graphics cards are the best? Internet forums are flooded with similar questions, because the situation on the component market can change quickly and it is difficult to keep up with novelties that turn previous concepts upside down. Before buying a computer, the future user faces serious problems that are inherent in money, which should be a strong incentive to look for the best solutions. That is why the following guide with recommended computer sets was created. Using our experience and test database, we have created visually clear and factually refined configurations, which are a good starting point when assembling a computer.

The publication was created mainly for not very advanced users with basic knowledge in the field of computer assembly, who need professional advice on what equipment to choose up to a certain amount. Forum visitors and zealous readers of articles on the PurePC website will probably be able to choose the best components on their own, although even then it is worth checking if the users’ suggestions are reflected in the editorial choices. If very similar configurations are recommended in both places, you can optimistically assume that you will not find a better computer at the moment. Of course, the kits are selected optimally and focused primarily on the price-performance ratio, but we absolutely do not aim at maximum savings. If a slightly more expensive component is simply better or covered by a longer warranty, we strongly recommend this solution. Quality and reliability are very important features.
Are you wondering what computer set to buy? A guide with recommended configurations should help you make the right choice.
The basic configuration in the sets proposed by PurePC consists only of basic components, i.e. processor, motherboard, RAM, graphics card, power supply, disks and possibly an additional cooling system. In this case, the price of the computer case was not included, mainly due to the very diverse tastes of readers and the extremely wide range of manufacturers. However, we have prepared suggestions for this element – the basket contains only the base components, while the boxes have a separate thematic section. In addition, peripherals and monitors have their own categories, where you can check the recommended models and choose the one closest to your individual preferences. Before you start shopping, be sure to also visit our hardware department, where you will find tests of most of the components recommended in the guide.
Although we are a portal that devotes a lot of attention to overclocking, we strongly do not encourage such practices. In recent years, the overclocking potential of CPUs and graphics cards has decreased noticeably, so the benefits of overclocking are unfortunately smaller. It should also be clearly stated that a lot depends on the skills, determination and equipment of the user, so we simply cannot promise anything certain. In the case of Intel processors, only some models with an unlocked multiplier allow for free overclocking, which of course plays a significant role in the entire process of building the platform. Also take into account that extremely unsuccessful attempts at overclocking can end up damaging the equipment, and the responsibility for the effects of inexpertly changing parameters is always the person who performs such activities. Therefore, the proposed configurations are more geared towards achieving specific performance out of the box than chiseling to improve performance.
Our sets are based on the offer of the Morele.net online store, but the publication is entirely authorial and independent. The store is only a product base, which it undertook to supplement as soon as possible and to maintain competitive prices of components selected by the editorial office. We decided to cooperate with Morele.net because it has been operating on the computer market since 2000, it offers a wide range of products (~ 50,000) and fast shipping or personal pickup of goods in over 15 cities in Poland. Additionally every PurePC.pl user to be ordered over PLN 1500 will receive computer kit assembly service for a symbolic zloty. If the proposal met your expectations, just click on the link highlighted in red, which leads straight to the basket of products. To take advantage of the promotion, follow the steps below:
- Special offer: computer assembly service for PLN 1 and free shipping – what you need to do:
- Place the computer kit assembly service in the basket (Click here!)
- In the basket with the order in the field “Enter promotional code” add: W3FHN58JFW
- The shipping costs and the price of the computer folding service will be changed automatically – done!
Although we have been creating the recommended computer sets since 2008, with the forces of the entire editorial office, we are always eager to listen to the readers’ observations and comments, after all, the list is intended for you. We realize that satisfying everyone is simply impossible, because subjectivism is an eminently human trait, but we will try to adapt the publication to the expectations of the majority. The proposed configurations are the starting point, tailored to the top-down budget, but the topic is absolutely not the end of it. The new version of the kits always appears on the first day of the month, and is updated thoroughly after two weeks, as prices and availability of products can change significantly. Under almost every component, we also place an alternative similar in performance and price, which you can choose without worrying about the quality of the computer.
