In this review, I take a close look at one of the highest-rated 3rd-party controllers of this generation: the 8Bitdo SN30 Pro+.
Welcome to our 2020 student budget build guide for 1080p gaming!
Wait a second, aren’t you meant to be studying?! In all seriousness, studying can be stressful at times, and gaming is a great way to unwind after working hard. Let’s get into looking at gaming on a student budget!
With the new generation of Intel CPUs, there comes a new budget option for us to sink our teeth into. Let’s take a look at building a cheap gaming setup with the i3-10100!
Who is the i7-10700K even for at this point? With so many other viable options, who buys this CPU? Well, let’s find out!

A new decade means lots of exciting new technology to spend your hard-earned money on! If you’ve got the itch to upgrade your PC, it might be worth checking these things out. Then you can either wait to see what improvements are in store, or be confident that a purchase made right now won’t be obsolete in six month’s time.

Logical Increments has a continuously updated tier list, showing how much it will cost to build a system with a specific performance goal in mind. Ranging from the basic ‘Destitute’ system to the crazy ‘Monstrous’ system, it gives readers an idea of what they can achieve, what their upgrade paths are, and provides easy build lists to ensure a balanced system with high-quality parts.

In fact, I’ve matched each of the 15 games in this article with 2 LI tiers each: one for 60+ FPS at 1080p, and one for 60+ FPS at 4K.

The madlads at Valve did it: we actually, truly, really do have a new Half-Life game coming in the form of Half-Life: Alyx!!! Sound the alarms, get the hype train started, IT’S HAPPENING!!!
But first, we need to build a PC to play the thing.
