When it comes to PC video gaming, most gaming laptops require a higher-end discrete GPU (graphics card) than what is usually incorporated in the average gaming notebook or laptop. With the stunning graphics used in today's gaming, not to mention the growing popularity of virtual reality in gaming, it is essential to have computers or gaming laptops designed specifically for the purpose of gaming. MSI designs and sells systems with all of the resources needed for entry-level or professional gaming laptops and gaming notebooks to create an immersive gaming experience with a full HD graphics display.

How does PC gaming offer more value than consoles?
  • Upgrades: When someone buys a game console, they usually intend to use the system for many years to come. And there is no reason that the system cannot technically function for years to come. It is only when companies decide to upgrade the entire system, if you want to play the new and improved versions of your favorite games, you have to buy an upgraded system. While the initial investment in a PC can often be higher than for a game console, PCs can be upgraded to keep up with the market and latest games and usually for a lot less than it would cost to buy a new game console.
  • No exclusivity: Some games are console exclusive, meaning that you can either play them on Xbox or PlayStation, but not both. Those same games almost always are made available for PC so the PC gaming rig can give the user the best of both worlds.
  • Blasts from the past: A PC gaming rig means a lot of games from the last 40 years will be available to you. Thanks to the dedication of hardcore gamers, many games from several decades are available for you to play. You may have to add a few modifications to your gaming system to play certain games.
  • Game prices: Another advantage of PC gaming is that the prices for PC versions of games are often discounted faster and stay lower than with other gaming systems. Sometimes, you can also find great "free-to-play" offers on games for PCs so you can try new games and take them for a test run.
