As one of the most powerful gaming systems available today, the PlayStation 5 deserves our respect. It provides a superb gaming experience and performance because it is designed solely for that. A PC, on the other hand, is meant to accomplish several things, even if you created or purchased it primarily for one purpose, such as gaming. So here’s the question: in terms of raw performance, can you have a PC build to match or exceed PS5 performance? Absolutely!

Can we compare the PS5 to a conventional PC?  Possibly. Now this is why: a PC is a multi-purpose device but can also provide mediocre to excellent gameplay performance depending on the components. On the other hand, the PS5 is built entirely for gaming, with a unique AMD Zen 2 CPU and RDNA 2 GPU that delivers excellent gaming performance. However, you may easily exceed the PS5 performance on a PC by building a PC using carefully selected components.

In this article, I am going to show you the exact components you need to purchase in order to build a PC that will match or even surpass the PS5 in terms of performance. Let’s go!

Putting it all together

Once you have these components, you can begin building your PC. Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to follow along. However, if you need help, simply reach out to me via this website contact page.

After completing these procedures, you should have a PC capable of matching or even exceeding the performance of the PlayStation 5. However, keep in mind that the PS5 has a few benefits that a PC may not have, such as specialized storage and other custom hardware designed exclusively for gaming.

However, this is not for all gamers since it’s a matter of personal choice, and die-hard PS5 fanboys will actually swear by their grandparents that the gaming experience on PS5 cannot be beaten by any PC. But we know better.

Nevertheless, the decision between PC and console gaming boils down to personal preference and the types of games you love playing. So it’s up to you to decide.

Useful tips to have in mind when building your PC

If you’re new to PC building, there are a few tips and tricks that can help make the process easier:

  • Conduct research: Before purchasing any components, conduct research to ensure that they are compatible with one another and match your requirements. That is why you are most likely on this page right now. Look for reviews and benchmarks to see how they stack up.
  • Contact Us: I’ve personally stacked up years of putting PCs together. You can always reach out to me here if you have any issues, free of charge. Besides, you can always refer to our PC build guide.
  • Take your time: Building a PC takes time, especially if you’re new to it. Take your time and don’t rush, as mistakes can cost you both time and money.
  • Use a magnetic screwdriver: A magnetic screwdriver can make working with little screws easier and prevent them from falling into difficult-to-reach spots.
  • Keep your work area clean: Dust and dirt can cause issues with your components, so keep your environment clean and clutter-free.

What’s your take on this?

It is certainly possible to construct a gaming PC capable of outputting similar gaming performance as the PlayStation 5. All you have to do is to use a careful selection of compatible components and with a little effort, you’ll have a PC that can compete, if not outperform the PS5.

However, I’d want to point out that both PC and console gaming have their distinct pros and cons. Your choice ultimately comes down to personal preference. Be sure to follow our DIY PC build guide, especially if you are a beginner. We outlined the steps to follow in simple language even a 5-year-old can do it!
