BR Paradox creates custom gaming computers for celebs like The Weeknd and James Harden
Take a deep dive into what it takes to build a computer specifically for gaming
- Hey, everyone. My name is Steph and welcome to "In the Know: Game On" where we'll delve into the hottest trends in gaming across multiple platforms and products. Today we're talking about PC musts and what you can expect when putting together your custom PC build. Joining me today is Arpit Manaktala, CEO and founder of Paradox Custom. So Arpit, I see that you brought over a whole set for us today. Can we dive in?
ARPIT MANAKTALA: So the item that's right in front of us, this is the go GoXLR. Streamers no longer use USB mics, right? So you need to use something like a Shure mic, which uses an XLR cable. These are custom Astros. Astro gaming, in my opinion, they make the best headsets.
- Talk to me. What's this right here?
ARPIT MANAKTALA: I brought the RTX 3090. This is, basically, the highest end graphics card you can get. I brought two of the most popular controllers around. The one closest to you is an all-black PS5 controller from Battle Beaver. The other controller is the SCUF controller. That's the SCUF Impact.
That's the highest end processor out right now it's the Intel i9-12900K. It's a 16 core, which is like the first time Intel has created a mainstream 16 core processor. This is just a top of the line build, you know? It's got the AMD Ryzen 5950X. And we have 10 LIAN LI UNI fans.
- All right, Arpit, well, thank you so much for showing us how the professionals do it. I'm Steph. And this is "In the Know: Game On." Peace.
