Star Wars games are incredible, and, if you are over 35 years old, i would add legendary to that. I remember even this days, after 20 years, how i broke my first joystick playing Tie Fighter. It was incredible! I will talk about the Star Wars game series and some PC configurations to play the games at max settings.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed – This cinematic Jedi fantasy stars Darth Maul voice actor Sam Witwer in the role of Starkiller, Darth Vader’s secret apprentice in the dark times after the Empire’s rise. Travel across the galaxy in search of surviving Jedi; customize your outfit, lightsaber, and abilities; and take on the Sith aboard their new colossal battle station. This one’s an absolute blast, and you can get it on GOG.com, Steam, or Xbox One.

Sadly, it doesn’t look like we’ll ever get to play Star Wars 1313, the cancelled game about Boba Fett’s bounty hunting adventures in the less respectable areas of Coruscant. But we have Star Wars: Bounty Hunter at least, the story of his father/the guy he was cloned from and his own adventures during the Prequel era. It’s admittedly a little janky, and not terribly innovative, but there will always be something empowering about playing through a game as a Fett.

There have been so many released, it’s difficult to remember that the LEGO games as we now know them kicked off in the Star Wars universe. Originally split across two titles, one focussing on each trilogy, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga was the ultimate version pulling two sizeable games into one massive package. Shrinking down the epic galaxy to cutesy proportions, each key scene from the movies is charmingly brought to life in block form. It’s packed full of unlockables and perfect for on-the-couch multiplayer with a young padawan in tow. A tie-in game done right.

The most pivotal decision you’ll make when purchasing a gaming desktop is which card you get. One option, of course, is no card at all; the integrated graphics silicon on modern Intel Core and some AMD processors is fine for casual 2D games. But to really bring out the beast on 3D AAA titles, you need a discrete graphics card or cards, and these cards are what distinguish a gaming desktop. Whether you go with an AMD- or Nvidia-based card is based partly on price, partly on performance. Some games are optimized for one type of card or another, but for the most part, you should choose the card that best fits within your budget. If you’re buying a complete gaming desktop, you of course don’t have to pay for a card in isolation, but this should help you understand how the card factors into the total price. You also have to know what you’re shopping for.

PC configuration recommended to play Star Wars intensive GPU games : The Corsair One isn’t the smallest PC on the market, but its power-to-size ratio is as good as it gets from a desktop with this footprint. And while it isn’t cheap, it’s actually a decent value, considering the parts inside, and how compact it is. The design of this prebuilt PC is cool without being too flashy, as it sports some subtle lighting and small triangular vents along the side. Meanwhile, processor and graphics card are liquid-cooled for cool and quiet performance, and it comes with six USB ports, four of which are USB 3.1. There are three models and the lower-end variant featured above comes with an Intel Core i7-9700K processor and Nvidia RTX 2080. If you need even more power, consider the One i160, which has a more powerful i9-9900K CPU and RTX 2080 Ti GPU than the i140 model linked above. For the most out-of-this-world performance, you might want the One i180 model, which ups the power again with a 12-core Intel Core X CPU. See more details at prebuilt gaming PC.
