A note on affiliate links

Some of our stories, such as our reviews and PC build guides (opens in new tab), include affiliate links to stores like Amazon and Humble. Without any cost to you, these online stores share a small amount of revenue with us if you buy something through one of these links, which helps support our work evaluating PC games and components.

We will always recommend the games and products we believe are the best available, always based on our own tests and research. The revenue from affiliate links—and of course you're encouraged to use whatever retailer you prefer—helps us convince the business folk upstairs to expand our test content.

Check out our hardware section (opens in new tab) for the latest reviews, browse our comprehensive buying guides (opens in new tab) for advice on everything from CPUs (opens in new tab) and monitors (opens in new tab) to desk chairs (opens in new tab), and research your next build with our complete budget (opens in new tab), mid-range (opens in new tab), and high-end (opens in new tab) PC build guides.
