The best way to budget for gaming gear

Rounding it up

  • Gaming gear isn’t cheap but understanding how the market works and what you want can help you budget appropriately.

  • If you’re looking to invest in a gaming PC, building your own can be a way to lower costs and have fun.

  • Console systems are more affordable, but less customizable.

  • Budgeting for something doesn’t necessarily mean that you buy the most affordable option; it means planning ahead for what you’ll spend.
