The holiday season can be a rough time if you are not sure what you buy, or ask for. We have taken out the hassle and delivered a comprehensive guide of our top picks that covers every type of component inside your computer.
Update: We’ve added a gadgets page!
It’s hard to believe that it’s that time of the year again. As we inch closer to the holiday season, there is no time to waste in figuring out what the hot hardware item for the season is. We have done all the legwork for you!
This guide is designed for buyers and givers alike. If you are unsure what the “hot” item is, this guide will help you understand what to purchase, or what to add to your wishlist. Even if you do not celebrate any holidays, this time of the year is still a fun one since a lot of the hot items go on sale. So keep your eyes peeled!
Throughout many of our categories, we have divided them in the order of Ultimate to Stocking Stuffer. AKA, “Uber Hot” or “Budget Gift”. One thing you should bare in mind though, is that even though we may call something a “Stocking Stuffer”, it’s still a quality product that we highly recommend. Anything that we think is crap is not listed here, simple as that. They are listed according to price, with the Ultimate being the most expensive usually, and the Stocking Stuffer being an item that’s affordable by anyone.
Alongside most of our picks are live pricing feeds, so that you can quickly see the best going price for a given product. Since the holidays is one time of the year where your wallet empties at light speed, these feeds help ease the pain.
If you are interested in seeing the list up front, here it is. Clicking on “Jump to Page” will bring you quickly to that page. If you are in no hurry to leave (why would you be?), feel free to casually stroll through the guide starting with the next page.
Word of caution before proceeding! If you are a gift buyer and intend on buying a friend/family/pet a piece of hardware, just make sure first that it will work on their PC by casually bringing it up in a conversation or getting them drunk so that they spill the beans. If you are to purchase a video card for example, chances are it will not work in a PC that’s two years old, since the PCI-E standard was brought on later. Of course if you are in need of any help or advice, you can hit up our forums and post your question there.
