A cabinet is an enclosure that houses all of the hardware components, which consists of a motherboard, power supply unit, cooling system, storage, RAM, and GPU unit. With a large storage space, a game cabinet provides a good cooling solution with plenty of room to mount fans and provide ventilation. Building a gaming PC is every gamer’s dream. Most gamers like see-through cabinets with lots of RGB lights.
Here are a few things you should consider before purchasing a game cabinet.
- You should check the size of the power supply you choose beforehand, as some of them can be bulky and may not fit all cabinets.
- Knowing the size of the GPU, some of the 3 fan GPUs are bigger and bulkier. A great example being the Nvidia RTX 3090 or AMD 6800 XT. They might not fit in smaller cabinets.
- See how much CPU you want to install, storage options, and ports including USB ports and cooling fan attachments.
