KITGURU SHORTLISTS: THE BEST DESKTOP PC OF 2022

Last updated on April 21st, 2022 at 08:12 am

Almost every KitGuru reader still uses a desktop PC as their primary system – with more and more of you choosing to buy a pre-built unit every year. From snazzy gaming mini-towers through to huge beasts with a dozen drive bays, we have tested the PCs and evaluated the PC builders before creating out shortlist.

Box Titanium X

This is a great gaming PC, smashing through the likes of Doom Eternal and Shadow of the Tomb Raider - with these specs, the Titanium X will take any modern title on with ease. I also think the approximate £200 premium of having Box build the system is acceptable given the level of care and detail they’ve put into the build, along with free delivery and that 3-year warranty.

PCSpecialist Magnus Spark

Dropping a grand on a gaming PC is still a hefty investment for most people, but PCSpecialist has done a very good job to ensure you are getting a well-balanced package for your money. The core spec is just very sensible - Intel's hexa-core i5-12400F performs like a champ, while the RX 6600 is, in my view, the best value graphics card on the market right now, offering excellent gaming performance at 1080p, while 1440p gaming isn't out of the question either.

The Titan Supreme follows in the footsteps of the previous PCSpecialist system we have seen and lives up to these standards once again.

Cyberpower Infinity X125 GT

The Infinity X125 GT system from Cyberpower is a good all-rounder. The build quality is excellent, and we absolutely love the Lian Li Air Mini case design. It’s very well put together and cable managed, the part choices complement each other and aesthetically it ticks all the boxes. The SSD could have faster write speeds, but it's not a major issue.
