How much it costs to build a 4K gaming PC in South Africa

PC gaming hardware is more powerful than ever, and running titles at 4K is viable with the latest high-end graphics cards.

While building a 4K gaming rig might sound like a lofty – and expensive – dream, improved components and single graphics cards can handle the demands of the high resolutions.

Aiding the cause is that the demand for graphics cards from cryptocurrency miners has abated somewhat, following the slow deflation of the Bitcoin “bubble”.
