What Makes GamingRig Different?

​Technology review sites come in many forms, so as a digital consumer, you have no shortage of options to choose from. Countless publications are vying for your attention with everything from promotions to early sneak peeks and industry insider interviews. Unfortunately, there are also just as many sites that fall short of what you've come to expect from tech enthusiast portals — unbiased, honest reviews powered by passion instead of corporate sponsorships or backdoor ad deals.

At GamingRig.com, we believe in total transparency. We've instituted a review system that's founded on testing products the same way we would if we were deciding whether to purchase them ourselves. By putting hardware through its paces in true-to-life conditions and not pulling any punches when we discuss how it fared, we're contributing to a healthier culture of consumer education.


The Web's Most Honest
Gaming Hardware Reviews

It can be hard to escape bias. As professional reviewers, we have our own preferences, and something we consider incredible might not always impress our readers. That doesn't mean, however, that we're going to stop trying to provide the best information we can.

We always take care to bring you in on the thought processes that power our reviews. Wondering why we rated a specific gaming rig more highly than the alternatives? We'll always explain the reasoning behind our decisions so that you can see where we're coming from. Wondering whether a certain peripheral might perform as well on your PC as it did on our test rigs? We publish specs and technical details that make it easier for you to decide if the products we cover are suitable matches for your home or business technology ecosystem.

Reviews are more fun when they're straightforward and reliable. Even though we're not always immune to geeking out over specific hardware or getting hyped by new releases, we promise to make it clear when we're sharing facts or discussing our opinions — so that you don't ever have to worry about confusing the two.

Our reviews are also more trustworthy because we don't sell them. As much as we'd like to rake in the big bucks, we place greater value in providing a genuinely useful community service. This means that we're not going to call something a good buy just because a manufacturer offered to slip us a wad of cash or a brand deal. Although we do receive fees as part of our membership in the Amazon Affiliates program, this compensation never comes at the expense of our mission — keeping you informed.

Fact-finding You Can Depe​nd On

Our review process is always hands-on. Speculation has its place, but here, we prefer to deal in facts. Our habit of trying out every single product instead of merely copying press releases lets us bring you details that you won't find elsewhere.

Want to compare gaming chairs by weight capacity or size? We deliver the essential details that most sites overlook. Curious whether a new motherboard's BIOS is easy to troubleshoot? We dive into the nitty-gritty so that you're better prepared for the unexpected.

One of the hallmarks of GamingRig.com reviews is that we make it easy to compare the advantages and disadvantages of specific products. Our straightforward layout and minimal-ad page layouts let you focus on what's important. We also sum most of our articles up with a handy pros and cons section. Unlike some reviewers, we're not afraid to highlight the negatives if doing so gives our readers more accurate insights.

Gamer-oriented Reviews by
Actual Gamers

Our authors hail from all walks of life, but they're united by their love of gaming. Unlike casual reviewers who simply happen to cover gaming rigs in their spare time, we're fully committed to the cause. We know what makes different hardware worthwhile and how your system choices contribute to your user experience. We've also worked in the gaming and tech industries, which gives us a unique perspective that few other digital publications can match.

It's not always easy to tell whether you should trust a review, but you can depend on the fact that GamingRig.com staff members stay informed and impartial. We have the technical expertise to understand sophisticated hardware and the firsthand knowledge to recognize the typical use cases that gamers need to be concerned about. This makes our reviews richer and ultimately more useful to those who feel passionate about their play.
 

Constant Updates

One of the most insidious perils of reading online reviews is that they're often outdated. Sure, it's great that you can find opinions on almost every piece of hardware under the sun, but you're unlikely to enjoy your experience quite as much if you restrict yourself to legacy hardware only.

As gamers, we know the value of staying on the cutting edge, so we continuously work to find, acquire and review current components and systems. Although we might not spring for every flashy new gaming rig that hits the market with a fancy water cooling system or programmable case lighting, we watch the industry like hawks in search of the most promising performers. In other words, we're able to review critical tech quickly because we keep our ears to the pulse of the industry.

Niche Reviews That Suit Your Needs

It's not always easy to find hardware review sites that cater to your specific tastes, but doing so is vital. Unless you're independently wealthy, your gaming rig might see more than just gaming use — these capable machines also tend to serve as workhorses for graphic designers, coders and creatives. This makes it imperative to have the full story on a system before you invest a significant chunk of your life savings into bringing it home.

We feel your struggle, and we've created a rich content library to help. Whether you're looking at getting into professional gaming, curious whether you'll actually notice the 144Hz difference or just confused about where to start building your rig, we have articles to get you on the right track.

No other site is quite this dedicated to making high-end gaming hardware accessible to the masses. Few review sites are as open to receiving feedback and correcting their mistakes as we are. We're proud to set a higher bar for the industry, and we can't wait to help you make the journey to a more rewarding gaming experience.
