Apex Legends was released February 4, 2019, and soon became the hottest battle royale game out there. The popularity is rising constantly as just one week after its release, it had over 25 million downloads and over 2 million concurrent players.

To really enjoy the game to it’s fullest, I compiled a list of the best gaming PCs for Apex Legends to really enjoy and own in the game.

This game is a 3d shooter, made with Source game engine. It’s is quite 3d heavy and for the best experience, you need quite a good gaming computer with high-end GPU and CPU. As for any other recent 3d shooter games, the game must run flawlessly, without any lag. Otherwise, you would suck big time, no matter if you are a skillful player. You just cannot compete with all the lag and stuttering, having a low-end machine. I tried that, I was sooo bad … ūüôā

Apex Legends Minimum system requirements:

  • CPU:¬†Intel Core i3-6300 3.8GHz / AMD FX-4350 4.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor
  • RAM: 6GB
  • GPU:¬†NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 / Radeon HD 7730
  • GPU RAM:¬†1 GB
  • HARD DRIVE:¬†Minimum 22 GB of free space

Apex Legends Recommended system requirements:

  • CPU:¬†Intel i5 3570K or equivalent
  • RAM:¬†8GB
  • GPU:¬†Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 / AMD Radeon R9 290
  • GPU RAM:¬†8GB
  • HARD DRIVE:¬†Minimum 22 GB of free space

 

What is the best desktop gaming computer for Apex Legends?

Considering the requirements I wouldn’t recommend buying some cheap low-end PC for let’s say under 500 bucks. The most crucial parts of the machine, are graphics card a processor. The minimum system requirement for Apex Legends is “NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 / Radeon HD 7730” and “Intel Core i3-6300 3.8GHz”. Regarding a GPU I would rather go for the 1000 series, you never know what the requirements will be in a few years.

You will notice that all the gaming PCs listed here have at least one system SSD drive. My opinion and big advice to you all: traditional HDDs are becoming obsolete. They are just slow and unreliable nowadays and can be served only as a second disk for larger storage space. Absolutely not for your system partition. Period.

Now let’s take a look what’s on the market.
