At Crystal Computers, we believe in equipping gamers with the tools they need to dominate the digital realm. In this blog post, we dissect the comparison between gaming PCs and the PlayStation 5 (PS5), shedding light on why the former stands tall as the superior choice for discerning gamers.

Unparalleled Performance: Crystal Computers' Peridot and Topaz

Before delving into the intricacies of the debate, let's introduce our contenders: the Peridot and the Topaz. These finely crafted gaming machines are engineered to deliver unmatched performance and immersive gaming experiences.

Meet the Peridot: Powered by the Ryzen 5 2600 6 Cores processor and boasting an 8GB Nvidia GeForce RX 580 graphics card, the Peridot is a formidable force in the gaming arena. With 16GB DDR4 dual-channel memory and a lightning-fast 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD, this powerhouse is designed to handle the most demanding games with ease. Priced at £429.99, the Peridot offers exceptional value without compromising on performance.

Enter the Topaz: Featuring the AMD Ryzen 5 4500 6 Cores processor and an 8GB Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics card, the Topaz takes gaming to new heights. Paired with 16GB DDR4 3200MHz dual-channel memory and a spacious 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD, this beast is built for speed and precision. At £549.99, the Topaz delivers uncompromising performance for gamers who demand the best.

Now, let's dive into the reasons why gaming PCs, exemplified by our Peridot and Topaz models, outshine the PS5:

Flexibility and Customization:

One of the defining features of gaming PCs is the ability to customize and upgrade components according to individual preferences and budget. Unlike consoles, which come with fixed hardware configurations, gaming PCs offer unparalleled flexibility, allowing gamers to tailor their systems to meet their specific needs.

Graphics and Visual Fidelity:

Comparing the raw power of gaming PCs to consoles like the Sony PlayStation 5 unveils an intriguing competition. According to PCGuide, to surpass the performance of the PS5, you'd need a desktop equipped with at least an AMD RX 5700 XT or an Nvidia RTX 3060 GPU, coupled with a robust CPU like the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. This combination crafts a PC powerhouse capable of outperforming the PS5 in various aspects of gaming prowess. Our Topaz PC strides confidently into this arena, featuring an 8GB Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics card. Remarkably, our Topaz surpasses the RTX 3060 by 10% in performance, offering gamers an edge in graphical fidelity and gaming fluidity. Paired with its formidable AMD Ryzen 5 4500 6 Cores processor, the Topaz emerges as a formidable contender, delivering an unrivalled gaming experience that exceeds the capabilities of traditional consoles.


Gaming PCs are more than just gaming machines – they're versatile multimedia hubs that can handle a wide range of tasks, from content creation to streaming and beyond. With features like multi-monitor support, VR compatibility, and robust connectivity options, our gaming PCs offer a level of versatility that consoles simply can't match.

Longevity and Upgradability:

Unlike consoles, which are typically replaced every few years with newer models, gaming PCs are built to last. With regular upgrades and maintenance, our Peridot and Topaz models can keep up with the latest games and technologies for years to come, ensuring a future-proof gaming experience.

In conclusion, while the PS5 certainly has its merits, gaming PCs like those offered by Crystal Computers reign supreme in terms of performance, customization, and versatility.
