Intel consistently improves computer performance year over year for everyone, from students to artists, business people to gamers. Not surprisingly, Intel is also critical to your success at the most intensely demanding activity for any computer: PC Gaming. Enter for a chance to win a high performance, Intel powered, gaming computer from Intel and Best Buy.

All gamers are welcome

What kind of gamer are you? It’s been said that variety is the spice of life and there are many kinds of PC gamer. Some people stick exclusively to simple PC games that work on any machine; others prefer highly demanding PC games they play on custom built water-cooled machines with the fastest Intel processor available. A recent study concluded that there are six distinct types of PC gamers:

  1. Alpha: Highly enthusiastic, cross-platform, social, influential, and competitive gamer; high knowledge of PC components especially as it affects gaming.
  2. Purist: PC-centric, preferring stationary, immersive gaming; likely to customize PC hardware.
  3. Enthusiast: passionate about the latest gaming trend, loves PC Gaming but also mobile/smartphone gaming; moderate hardware knowledge
  4. Pragmatist: hobbyist preferring stationary/solitary gaming; knowledgeable about hardware but pragmatic about which computer works for their needs
  5. On-the-go: gaming on the go is most important; satisfied with easy to use PC products
  6. Casual: gaming is a quick escape and usually a stationary activity; not very knowledgeable about PC hardware

Think about where you fit into this framework, and what kind of games you most like to play.

  1. I’d call myself an on the go, since I’m always trying to fit games into my schedules. That’s why I think the ASUS Zephyrus S Thin would fit me really well.

    • I’m a grandma isolated at home in this time of the coronavirus and would love to game online with my grandkids great grandkids, one of my great grand kids was trying to teach me how to game and he was so patient but he kind of told me with a big grin I was hard to teach LOL. I believe I would likely be a casual gamer, and this would be my dream machine I don’t even know if it is a gamer machine.
      HP Pavilion 27″ All-in-One PC – White (Intel Core i7-9700T/2TB HDD/256GB SSD/16GB RAM) – English

  2. I would consider myself an enthusiast. I know and follow all the latest PC trends and advancements, but only use my PC for casual gaming. PCs for me are more productivity and creation with things like photo/video editing and rendering

  3. Enthusiast who dreams of an ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 15.6″ Gaming Laptop (Intel Core i7-7700HQ/512GB SSD/16GB RAM/Win10)

  4. Casual gamer who would love to game with the ASUS Zephyrus S Thin 15.6″ Gaming Laptop (Intel i7-9750H/512GB SSD/16GB RAM/NVIDIA RTX 2060)

  5. I am a pragmatist when it comes to PC builds. I built a gaming PC last summer, but now the kids fight over who gets to use it. The MXG Platinum Gaming computer would relatively equal gaming performance for both children.

  6. ALPHA rainbow Acer is good id love it im a single child im lonely all the time i just make friends on The Internet AND I NEED Laptop I Used To Have A Windows 7 But Was Broken And Didn’t Last Long. It Was My Grandmas Old One Now They Have A Hp Windows 10

  7. I am an On-the-go gamer for sure. Gaming wherever, whenever helps me relax and I don’t think that will ever change. I would LOVE the ASUS Zephyrus S Thin 15.6″ Gaming Laptop (Intel i7-9750H/512GB SSD/16GB RAM/NVIDIA RTX 2060)
    My two older brothers had me into games when I was a little kid and I’m 24 now and haven’t been able to get myself a laptop that can handle the demands of games. I would be eternally grateful!!!

  8. The type of gamer I am would be pragmatist, and the machine of my dreams would be the Dell G7790 17.3″ Gaming Laptop – Abyss Grey (Intel Core i7-9750H/1TB HDD/256GB SSD/16GB RAM/RTX 2060).

    Alienware m17 17.3″ Gaming Laptop (Intel Core i7-9750H/512GB SSD/16GB RAM/RTX 2070)

  10. I am a casual gamer for sure, and not afraid to admit it. I don’t know a lot about PC tech but damn, do I appreciate it.

  11. I’m likely an Enthusiast. I play consoles primarily (PS4 and Switch) but last year I built my first gaming PC and it’s opened up a whole new world.

    Mind you, it’s a starter/budget gaming PC, medium/high settings depending on the game, and a few visual enhancements turned down or off. But I built it and it works .

    If we’re talking dreams, I’d love the CyberPowerPC with the i7-9700K and RTX 2080 ti. I would be able to play anything AND finally dive into VR. It would be amazing.

  12. I”d say I am a pragmatist by the descriptions above, I feel repetitive but I would say the ASUS Zephyrus S Thin 15.6″ Gaming Laptop would fill all my needs.
