If there's one advantage that PC gaming has over its console brethren, it's the ability to customize one's hardware. Once you buy a console, that's it: there's no way to upgrade any of the system's hardware without modification that could potentially brick the console. PCs, on the other hand, are usually designed with extra slots and room for upgraded attachments. While it's true that there are some headaches associated with PC gaming, for those who know what they're doing, there's no better way to play.
Of course, one of the most important pieces of tech in any system is the graphics card: after all, it's hard to play games without any sort of graphics on screen. Nvidia is known for making some of the most powerful cards in the business, and with games requiring more and more power to run these days, the manufacturer is one of the best options out there.
But what if you're looking for even more power? While it's possible to stack multiple cards together, is it really worth the extra power requirements? In the end, does it really make a noticeable difference? Thankfully, Linus Tech is here to finally answer that question once and for all:
The video's definitely not for beginners; even some more advanced PC users may get left behind once the techno-babble really gets going. Even so, it's a great analysis of both the dual-card and triple-card options, and while $1000 may sound like a lot for a single component of the system, it's necessary for true high-end PC gaming.
That being said, this is for the highest of high-end gaming: most monitors are only going to hit 60 frames-per-second, so if you're fine with playing in something less than 4K resolutions at 120 fps, you probably don't have to worry about picking up an extra $1,000 worth of tech.
