Here’s how you can win this insane, custom Starfield PC

Gaming PC Modeled After Starfield Control Panel?! [Giveaway]

Modders always come out with some wild PC designs for new game releases, but this custom Starfield PC from Skytech Gaming might be one of the coolest I’ve ever seen. It’s a machine that comes from a collaboration between Skytech Gaming, Intel, and SignalRGB, and you can enter for a chance to win it.

The giveaway just launched, so you have 45 days to enter for a chance to win the computer on SignalRGB’s website. It’s a Gleam giveaway, so you can rake up more chances to win the PC by following the collaborators on different social platforms.

The PC looks amazing, but it has a lot of interesting functionality, as well. The built-in screen includes various system stats, so you can monitor your performance while using the machine. In addition, indicator lights on the front show your status in-game through the SignalRGB app. The indicator lights are truly unique to Starfield. They show your ship’s stats, and they’ll start blinking red if any of your ship’s systems are damaged.

At the bottom, you’ll find two Elgato Stream Decks built in, along with four control knobs that can control settings light your lighting brightness and volume.

That’s great, but it’s the stunning attention to detail that makes this machine look so great. There’s weathering on the bottom and sides of the machine, giving it a lived-in look that fits perfectly with the aesthetic of Starfield. Even the three front-panel USB ports fit seamlessly into the design of the machine.

It’s plenty powerful, too. Although you should still follow our best settings for Starfieldthe game comes kitted out with an Intel Core i7-13700K, AMD RX 7900 XTX, 32GB of DDR5 memory, and a 1TB NVMe SSD. The machine doesn’t have one of AMD’s exclusive Starfield-themed GPUs, but I’ll take this custom PC over one of those GPUs any day.

Although it will be tough to upgrade, you can pull down the screen at the front of the machine to service the internals.

Outside of Starfield, the company also demonstrated the ability to use custom lighting to sync your peripherals together, as well as connect them with other games. Though, let’s be honest, nothing beats the look the PC has when it’s running with Starfield.

This $7 app doubled the performance of my gaming PC — seriously
Cyberpunk 2077 running on a gaming monitor.

I know it sounds too good to be true, but there's a $7 app that will double your performance in any game, with any graphics card. There are some caveats, as you probably suspect, but the app works shockingly well considering what it does -- and I haven't stopped using it since downloading it on Steam.

The app in question is called Lossless Scaling. It does two things. When the app released in 2018, it allowed you to upscale games (or any other content) using a more sophisticated algorithm than what your monitor uses. More recently, Lossless Scaling has added frame generation, and just a couple of weeks ago, that frame generation was overhauled.

The best games you can beat in a day

Games have steadily become larger and larger as the generations go on. Thanks to the most advanced console and PC technology, developers are able to craft massive worlds and stories that would have been impossible in the past. While many of us enjoy sinking our teeth into a meaty 100-hour-long game from time to time, eventually fatigue will set in. That's where games on the other end of the spectrum come in. These games aren't afraid to tell a tight, compact story, or to explore a single gameplay concept, and then call it a day without stretching things out. They are no less impactful or memorable than their massive counterparts, and may even be superior in some player's eyes. Here are a few of the best games you can beat in a single day to cleanse your palate with some more experimental titles.

Fortunately, enabling Secure Boot is as quick as changing a single BIOS setting.

Here's how to do it.
