The Gaming PC Trends 2017

Although the number of console players has grown steadily since the start of the current generation, the hard core of gaming enthusiasts are still sitting in front of their PC’s. This is not surprising, because the personal computer is very popular because of its expandability. And that is a necessity, because newer games like Civilization VI or the new series blockbusters “Battlefield 1” and “Call of Duty: Warfare Infinite” are very power-hungry. So if you do not regularly upgrade your box or buy a new one every year, you will be left behind. Graphics cards and processors of well-known brands are expanding every year to a new generation.

Special Gaming PC Trends: Adaptive Casings

If you have ever built one yourself using parts, you can revel in the joys of  the Dark Base Pro 900. The special feature of the case is that you can take out the inner mounting platform and place it outside the casing on the table. This allows new components to be installed easily and without interfering with the frames. On the back of the platform are extra loops. This allows you to keep the many cables very neatly out of the way. In order to be able to admire your work from the outside after assembly, the interior is illuminated by LEDs and visible through a window in the side. On top of the housing there is an induction charger for your mobile phone. Above the USB ports you can charge your Samsung Galaxy S6 (or higher) without annoying cable connections.
