3 Best Budget PCs for Gaming and Daily use in 2012

We were being bombarded with so many requests to bring the best possible PC systems for daily use and gaming each and every month, which we couldn’t just sit there and ignore them. So keeping our readers expectations in mind, we will give some recommendations to them regarding buying PC. This month we will be focusing on building a rig that fulfills your everyday needs and more; keeping in mind the size of your pocket, of course.

Over the last couple of months, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of options available for memory. Enthusiasts can go nuts with all the big names available in the market, which makes choosing one even more difficult. Prices of hard disks have seen a significant price bump. In fact, since the increase in the US dollar exchange rate, they seem to be one of the worst-hit products. The processor category is dominated by Intel, specifically its 2nd generation Core series. Intel seems to have outperformed AMD’s lineup in nearly every benchmark. All I can say is that AMD has a lot of catching up to do if it wants to retain any market share. Choosing a graphic card is a tricky little thing, since the increments are translated into only a couple of more frames. So we tried to choose a middle ground in terms of price and performance. And without further ado, here’s your delicious serving of bytes.
