About Us

Let’s start here:

I’m Brandon Dudley.

And I’m here to teach you everything I know about PC Gaming.

I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but I’m quite a master at PC Gaming. As a youngster, I started PC Gaming on a Commodore 64.

Eventually, I graduated to using a desktop PC for gaming. But I quickly realized that not all PCs were created equal for gaming. So, I started building my own custom PCs optimized for gaming. And in the process, I learned a lot about the inner workings of a PC and what makes it truly great for gaming.

Over the years, I’ve had the luxury of using almost every type of computer, working at first on a pc building company and later on starting my own business Black Lotus Gaming; I’ve been hands-on with every component and peripheral out there.

Consider me your “PC Gaming Go-to Guy.”


We will empower PC Gaming through education.


Our mission is to teach you everything we know about PC gaming, from building your own PC to optimizing it for the best gaming experience possible.

Join us on this journey as we tackle topics such as understanding processors and graphics cards, choosing the right peripherals, and even delving into virtual reality.

PC Components

PC components are a vital part of any PC gaming build. The right components can mean the difference between a smooth, seamless gaming experience and one that’s plagued with choppy gameplay and system crashes.

When choosing PC components, you must consider your budget, your needs, and the type of games you plan to play. You’ll generally want a powerful processor, plenty of RAM, a high-quality graphics card, and plenty of storage space.

If you’re on a tight budget, you may want to focus on choosing the most important components and skimping on some of the less important ones. For example, you may be able to get away with using an older processor if you’re only playing older games that don’t require as much power.

When building your PC for gaming, it’s also important to keep your cooling system in mind. If your system runs too hot, it can cause performance issues and even damage your hardware. Make sure you have a good CPU cooler and case fans to keep things running, cool and stable.

If you’re looking for advice on specific PC components, take a look at our in-depth articles on CPUs, GPUs, motherboards, and memory modules.


PC gaming is one of the most popular uses for a computer, and, as a result, there are many peripherals designed specifically for gamers. These can range from specialized gaming mice and keyboards to monitors and headsets.

To get the most out of your PC gaming experience, it’s important to choose the right peripherals. Our guides can help you find the best products for your needs and budget.
