You may or may not know that games can become more or less demanding over time, thanks to the likes of feature additions, updated textures, driver updates, etc. Since we’re all about offering gaming systems tailored to your needs, we’ve reviewed a number games and their requirements. Some games have had major updates or expansions, while others have changed slightly.

Have you checked out our game database to see how your next gaming PC can expect to run the latest and greatest games? Don’t forget, once you customise a PC you can also see how it will perform in every game we have in our database right from the summary page (just scroll down a little)!

Most games get released, have a big surge of people playing it, and then it will die off eventually. A lot of online focused games have stronger staying power, however. As hardware generations come out, we need to ensure our suggestions match the hardware we sell. So, it’s more important that we keep these up to date.


Virtual Reality (VR)

Virtual reality has been around for a while – there are those that are right into it, and those who still haven’t experienced much of it. The requirements have stayed much the same, decent i5 teamed with a middle-to-high end graphics card will do the trick.

Grand Theft Auto V

It’s no real surprise that this game is still in the top 10 games played on Steam. GTA games have always had so much depth to them, even in just single player. GTA V’s online multiplayer which is continually getting updates keeps players coming back, and new players coming in.

Thanks to developers paying the PC version special attention, the game looks better and better over time, while demanding just about all PC hardware has to offer.


When we first added Rust to our game database, it was still in early access. It’s come a long way since then, and was officially released in February this year. The amount of players has remained fairly stable growing from 2013 to now, which indicates happy gamers!

Path of Exile

A bit of a quiet achiever, PoE has maintained a steady amount of play time since 2013. In the last 12 months it appears to have risen in popularity, now higher than ever before.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth

WoW first released late 2004, meaning it’s approaching it’s 14th year. Love it or hate it, WoW is one of the most successful games of all time. The latest expansion “Battle for Azeroth” launched just last month. We figured, what better time to review the requirements!

PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds (PUBG)

Starting off once again in early access, PUBG has now officially released. While it’s still quite resource demanding, we should expect a better quality of gaming to be possible.

Star Citizen

In early access when we added it back in 2014, with an estimated late 2015 release date… is still in early access. It may be one of the most ambitious games ever attempted on a large scale, with a lot to like about it. But, its future doesn’t look as bright as it once was. Right now, there’s a lot of bad press relating to some ticket sales being charged for even though people were subscribed – and there’s even an active lawsuit against them from their game engine developer.
