Holiday Buying Guide for Gaming PCs

White theme

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! What better color theme to capture the essence of the winter holidays than the frosty white? Our picks for a white-themed Gaming PC don't compromise on the color of choice nor do they compromise on performance.

A white theme is perfect if you prefer a mellower winter theme, with minimal RGB lighting to make sure that gorgeous Gaming PC remains the center of attention.

Here's the stuff you should be eyeing when looking for white-themed PC gifts:
B450M MORTAR TITANIUM
A perfect fit for a PC built around an AMD Ryzen processor, this stunning white motherboard showcases a beautiful white finish that enhances your build instantaneously. The MORTAR series has seen resounding success, quite understandably. A combination of quality components, overclocking support, and premium features at an affordable price have made this one of the best mid-range motherboards of all time.
GeForce RTX™ 2080 VENTUS 8G OC
No Gaming PC's complete without a powerful graphics card. So, let's just go with the most powerful gaming GPU ever created. It is the holiday season after all! A greyish-white finish on the frame of this graphics card makes it an ideal candidate for a winter-themed gift. It is capable of powering both high-refresh-rate as well as high-resolution monitors without breaking a sweat. What better way to make someone believe in Santa Claus than gifting them the most powerful graphics card on the planet?

Don't worry. Gamers on Intel processors, we got you covered too! The B360M MORTAR TITANIUM is suitable for both 8th and 9th Gen Intel CPUs. The design stays in line with the rest of the MORTAR TITANIUM lineup with a gorgeous white finish that just screams winter and class in one fell swoop.
Trident 3 Arctic 8th
Want to gift someone a full gaming PC, even if they're not as tech and hardware-savvy as you are? Well, we have an elegant solution for you as well! The Trident 3 Arctic 8th is a versatile compact gaming PC that packs a punch. What's more. It features a white cabinet that embodies the spirit of the winter holidays and pure white snow. Although it is both lightweight and compact, its hardware is far from lightweight. Equipped with an NVIDIA GTX 1070 and an Intel 8th Generation CPU, this PC will allow you to play the latest games at top-notch quality settings without a hitch.

RGB theme

Prefer a bit of color instead? An RGB-themed PC part is an excellent gift for those who absolutely adore both color and customizability. Light up both their lives and houses with your thoughtful gift.

An RGB-themed gift has several upsides. One of the most prominent ones being customizability. It is often an impossible task trying to figure out what colors someone may or may not like. But it shouldn't be impossible for Santa Claus, should it? These RGB picks will allow gamers to choose the color schemes that they prefer quite easily.
