The Best Prebuilt Extreme Gaming/Creative Workstation PCs?

By that, I mean the prebuilt PCs that offer the best performance.

Why write this article?

How much time do you have to research the best computer?

Many of us don’t have much time to read, or the knowledge to understand, detailed computer specifications nor reviews and just want to know:
What’s the best PC for my needs?

I’m here to help you with this article. I believe that you deserve the computer that is the best for your needs. That way, your computer is working for you and not the other way around. This allows you to focus your full potential on realizing what you want, without being limited by your computer.

With 19 years of experience with computer hardware, researching, always up-to-date research with the newest parts, performance and prices, I know what matters in a computer.
See my About page for more information on me, Mathieu Bourgie, and this website, Hardware Revolution

I recommend the computers that offer the best performance at a given price, without sacrificing reliability of course.

Alternatives recommendations:

I may also suggest alternative recommendations, with clear explanations as to why they are interesting alternatives.

About the CyberPowerPC Gamer Supreme Liquid Cool

Gamers:
Compared to the model above, gaming performance is similar at 4K. At 1080p, it might be a few % lower, nothing noticeable. So if you only care about gaming performance, you can skip this model.

However, if you care about overall performance, the 12 cores AMD Ryzen 9 3900X has the upper hand on anything that Intel offers on the mainstream CPU market right now.

It’s also equipped with liquid CPU cooling, allowing you to overclock the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X in order to boost performance.

This build also is equipped with the CPU that offers the best gaming performance: the 8th generation six core, 12 threads, 3.7-4.7GHz Intel Core i7-8700K processor.
