PC Desktops and All in One Computers

There is a wide range of PC desktops and all-in-one computers available to choose from, including cheap gaming PCs, depending on your computing requirements. Whether you're in the market for a gaming PC for extra power and performance, or you simply want to upgrade your current desktop computer to a newer model, eBay has a range of options to choose from, including Dell, Acer, Hp Pavilion, CCL computers, and Alienware gaming computer models.

Differences between a desktop PC and all in one computers

A desktop PC is the traditional style computer where the main components are housed in their own casing and usually comes in the upright tower console style or the horizontal desktop style. A separate computer monitor must be attached to this style to be able to use it.

An all-in-one PC features the internal working housed within a unit that also incorporates the monitor screen. These can be useful if you wish to save space on your desk surface or if you prefer the look of this type of machine, which can appear to be more stylish than the conventional arrangement. All-in-one computers may also include speakers within their body, so you don't have to attach separate computer speakers (again, another possible space-saving feature).

Types of desktop PC

The main items you may wish to consider when choosing a desktop PC or all-in-one computer include the motherboard, operating system, and the capacity of things such as the onboard storage memory, RAM memory and processor speed.

Windows computers are the most common type of operating system to use, with Windows 10 being the current version, though you can still purchase Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines.

Onboard memory will range from 128 Gb right up to 2Tb computers and beyond. RAM and processor speeds will be from 2Gb to 32Gb and more for RAM, or 1.33 GHz to 2.66 GHz and higher for processor speeds. In both cases, the larger the number, the more powerful the machine.

Screen size is something you'll want to consider for your all-in-one computer, especially if you are a gamer. From 15 inches up to 28 inches, the best gaming PC monitors offer a perfect balance of power, resolution, and size for a fully immersive experience.
