Most personal computer games have specific computer software and hardware requirements. In order to play the latest games, in most cases, the computer's graphics card, sound card, processor, power supply and even the operating system may need to be upgraded to the latest specifications. For new users, it also helps to understand computer terminologies and jargon used in computer gaming.
