Supersized: why I’m finally upgrading my Twitch gaming PC

I’ve been an exclusive PC gamer for a few years now, and I love it. I initially made the jump from console to PC gaming about two years ago, as more and more of my friends were playing popular games on PC, rather than on console. 

Games like Overwatch, Destiny 2, and Borderlands 3 were some of the multiplayer-heavy games that I played with friends, and as I continued to spend less time on my PlayStation 4, I picked up future games for PC only.

My current gaming rig is certainly something that shocks a few people. It’s a Zotac Magnus EN1060, which is a delightful compact PC with some pretty decent internals. Sporting an Intel Core i5 processor, 32GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, it’s seen me through a lot of my games, though capped at medium quality settings.  I opted for this PC because of its tiny footprint – it barely takes up any space on my desk, yet it’s able to drive two of my monitors and has a ton of connectivity options at the back.

But as modern games become more demanding, my space-saving setup is becoming less and less adequate at keeping up. What’s further putting a strain on my current PC is the fact that I also use it to stream to Twitch, which in itself is a resource-heavy activity.
