Searching for a good gaming PC? There are plenty of them available, though here are the best gaming computers to consider in 2020.
Gaming computers can be traced back to the early 1950s when computer scientists made the first video games for simulation and recreation. The video games were only used in research institutions such as MIT and were out of reach for the common man. The most popular games were tic-tac-toe and the moon landing, which were played on the IBM 1560. It took another 20 years for video games to reach mainstream popularity.
In the 1970s and ’80s, arcade games and gaming consoles using buttons, joysticks, and other controllers became more popular. At the time, computer technology was being adopted in the mainstream consumer market. The earliest proper gaming computers were the Apple II and the Commodore PET, meant for family consumption.
