Gaming PC Names Are Truly Embarrassing

PLAY HARD!!! Image via

I am in the market for a brand new gaming PC — thank you Kirk Hamilton — so today I decided to start browsing a bit. And I discovered the glory of video game PC branding. It’s sort of like Taco Bell crossed with Hot Topic.

Here is a list of actual names of actual gaming PCs that you can buy right now:

  • CyberPower Gamer Master Ultra
  • Falcon Northwest Tiki
  • Alienware Area-51 Threadripper Edition
  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper Extreme
  • Cyberpower Gamer Infinity 8000
  • Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube
  • Velocity Micro Raptor Z95
  • SkyTech ArchAngel GTX 1050 Ti
  • iBUYPOWER Chimera 5 – Flame Edition
  • iBUYPOWER Chimera 5 – Snow Edition
  • StormForce Tornado
  • ABS Battlebox Essential Vortex Leo
  • Chillblast Fusion Adamantium 3
  • Wired2Fire Diablo Fury
  • Cyberpower Ultra 5 Dragon Edition
  • Pro Gamer FTW Xtreme 2000 (I swear to god I’m not making these up)

But wait — it doesn’t stop there! Here is a list of actual names of actual PC parts that you can buy right now:

  • be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 (CPU cooler)
  • Deepcool CAPTAIN 240EX WHITE (CPU cooler)
  • Asus MAXIMUS VIII HERO (motherboard)
  • ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming K6 (motherboard)
  • MSI H270M BAZOOKA (motherboard)
  • Deepcool TESSERACT SW (case)
  • Raidmax Vortex (case)
  • Fractal Design Meshify C (case)
  • Cooler Master Storm Stryker (case)

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be fuelling on some Mountain Dew Code Red while getting in some serious play on my Pro Gamer FTW Xtreme 2000.


  • Pity the poor salesperson: “Perhaps sir/madam would be interested in a fine ABS Battlebox Essential Vortex Leo … (sobs)”

  • Build your own and V-Blog the whole experience – including purchasing all the parts from your local MSY!!! Will be hilarious = Best Kotaku article of 2018 coming up.

    • A video where a guy is told that everything on his part shopping list is not in stock?

  • Thought this was going cover what Gamers call their battle-station.

    I call mine Alex.
