Computer games were created years ago and it evolved as years goes by. There are several gaming consoles available in the market and usually, gamers tend to spend money on their gaming devices to better improve their gaming experience.

Hardcore gamers will always make sure that their hardware components are up to date in order to prevent hangs, lags or anything that might cause a bad experience while playing. For those who are not aware, a desktop computer is also considered as a gaming device and it is the one that needs constant upgrading.

New games on the market are being released from time to time and that it why upgrading your hardware is a thing you might want to consider. Most of you might be asking if why it is needed. The answer is simple, new games = new hardware requirements.

In this present time where games looks and feels real already, it would definitely need a video card that is capable of rendering the graphics and a processor that could support them. Your current hardware components might still be capable of running a newly released game but it could only run on its lowest setting. When a game setting is... only on the lowest, graphics would not be that good.

A good video card could costs thousands of pesos but when it would be worth it especially if you paired it with a good processor. The two components are usually the ones that need upgrading. Some games also require a big hard drive space for installation and it would be best to always have an ample amount of space on your drive.

A good example for this is the NBA 2k14 game being compared to the newest NBA 2k15. To run 2k14, you only need a Pentium 4 with a 2.4 GHz speed for the processor and a 128 MB for the video card but when 2k15 was released, it is already requiring an intel core 2 duo processor and a 512 MB Video card which means that if you are still using a Pentium 4 processor, the game would not run on your machine anymore.

For those who want to play a new game, I would advise that you check the recommended requirements and not only the minimum requirements first just to make sure that everything would work fine. The recommended requirement means that the game could run at smoothly even on a high detail setting while the minimum requirement means that the game could run but the detail is only on the low setting.
