Novatech recommends these Gaming PCs to play Valorant based on the developer's provided system requirements.
When it comes to getting the best gaming experience possible in esports titles, it’s all about having the right hardware. Generally being extremely well-optimised with less strain placed on the GPU, you’re almost certainly going to find yourself CPU-bottlenecked in these games. The solution? A super-fast processor capable of delivering frame after frame, keeping your visuals silky smooth and, more importantly, letting you see more “time” in the virtual world.
Paired with a suitably powerful GPU, the faster your processor can run, the more frames you’ll get, meaning you’ve got many more precious milliseconds to react – in competitive settings, that’s the difference between winning, and losing.
Having a CPU-GPU combo capable of pushing high framerates isn’t the only thing though; it’s also about minimising those 1% and 0.1% lows. In other words, that framerate needs to be consistent.
In a system that can deliver over 100 fps but frequently dips to below 60, you’ll see noticeable and jarring stutters, which could cost you that vital shot. The more powerful the processor, the more powerful the graphics card should be, and vice versa. With a perfect pairing, you’ll get high framerates that stay high, no matter how demanding the scene.
