PC custom builds for Star Wars games series

Star Wars games are fabulous, and, if you are over 40 years old, i would add legendary to that. I remember even this days, after 20 years, how i broke my first joystick playing Tie Fighter. It was incredible! I will talk about the Star Wars game series and several PC custom builds to play the games at max settings.

Star Wars Battlefront II – From now through December, DICE has loads of new updates rolling out in support of their 2017 blockbuster. Expect new modes, a massive multiplayer map set on the planet Felucia, and a whole slate of content inspired by the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker — free for all players. Jump in an X-wing and blow something up; ignite your blade as Rey, Kylo Ren, and the rest of your favorites in the new-and-improved Heroes vs. Villains mode; or experience Iden Versio’s incredible story in the single-player campaign. Star Wars Battlefront II is available on Origin, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Sadly, it doesn’t look like we’ll ever get to play Star Wars 1313, the cancelled game about Boba Fett’s bounty hunting adventures in the less respectable areas of Coruscant. But we have Star Wars: Bounty Hunter at least, the story of his father/the guy he was cloned from and his own adventures during the Prequel era. It’s admittedly a little janky, and not terribly innovative, but there will always be something empowering about playing through a game as a Fett.

There have been so many released, it’s difficult to remember that the LEGO games as we now know them kicked off in the Star Wars universe. Originally split across two titles, one focussing on each trilogy, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga was the ultimate version pulling two sizeable games into one massive package. Shrinking down the epic galaxy to cutesy proportions, each key scene from the movies is charmingly brought to life in block form. It’s packed full of unlockables and perfect for on-the-couch multiplayer with a young padawan in tow. A tie-in game done right.

Most gaming systems will come preinstalled with a single midrange or high-end graphics card; higher-priced systems will naturally have better cards, since purchase price typically correlates with animation performance and visual quality. AMD and Nvidia make the graphics processors, or GPUs, that go into these cards, which are made by third parties such as Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, Sapphire, and XFX (to name just a few).

PC custom build pick of the month to play Star Wars intensive GPU games : If you’re tight on space and want a gaming PC, a cube desktop like the Lenovo might be just the thing for you. Cube Gaming PCs are squatter than your average gaming desktop tower, but still long and wide enough to incorporate full-sized PC components, which makes them a nice middle ground between a regular computer and a mini rig. You can load up the Lenovo Legion C730 with quite a lot of power with up to Intel Core i9 CPUs and Nvidia RTX 2080 graphics. I’ve decided to feature the mid-range option which features an Intel Core i7-9700K and Nvidia RTX 2070. See more details at prebuilt gaming PC.
