Best Buy Desktop Guide – January 2016




Of course we also kicks off 2016 with a Best Buy Guide for the desktop. We have, together with the community, composed of three systems, two game systems and a basic system. The desktop gets compared to a year ago, mainly more and more SSD capacity and faster components. We emphasize the BBG systems increasingly gaming, because many other tasks are more and more laptops and tablets or phones delegated.

However, the desktop is still alive, according to the discussions on the systems. We also have a brand new BBG’er in our team Stefan Vangelder after five years of service will replace: welcome to br00ky so and special thanks to Stefan Vang Elder.

To start the year and the dark months with a bit to get through action, we have created two game systems alongside our basic system, for about a thousand euros and a highend system with a budget of 1500 to 1600 euros. Given the large budget we have paid special attention to the design: we chose parts that fit nicely together and have a black and red theme.

As usual, the Best Buy Guide systems are compiled in consultation with the community of Tweakers. The topic on the Gathering of Tweakers Forum can anyone give his opinion about the perfect system. The BBG team places a few weeks before publishing proposals for systems in the Complete Systems & Laptops forum. Then all forum visitors can express their opinions and discuss changes. When writing and compiling the final BBG we start from the feedback in the above topics, our own findings, the reviews from fellow hardware sites and experiences of fellow tweakers on the forum and in the Product Reviews.
System Budget
Basic System 350 euro
Mainstream Game System 1000 euro
Highend Game System 1500 – 1600 euro

The prices of the various parts retrieved from the real PriceWatch and are therefore subject to change. Prices in the tables are fixed at the time of publication. As a part more than once in a configuration as the two video cards for SLI or crossfire system is kept in the total price into account. All prices include VAT.
