Already got the game and want to expand your gameplay with new visuals and game mechanics? Here’s our recommendations for best Palworld mods.

1. ASUS ROG G16CH – best overall choice

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080


Intel Core i7-13700KF





  • Competitively priced
  • High end GPU
  • Extra RAM slots available
  • On the pricier side

ASUS is a brand best known for their reliable PCs and laptops, not just for gaming. The ASUS ROG G16CH comes stocked with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 (a current-generation top performer) which is far exceeds the  recommended RTX 2070 recommended by Palworld on Steam. What’s more, ASUS ROG G16CH comes with Windows 11 and 1TB of storage, so you’ve got plenty of space to store Palworld and any other anticipated titles on the 2024 upcoming games list.

Equipped with 32GB of RAM and a total of four RAM slots, the ASUS is set to run Palworld with ease. It features an Intel Core i7-13700KF processor which is a better CPU than the recommended i5-3570K as found in the system requirements.

The downside? The pricing – the ASUS ROG is currently on Amazon for $2,790, which while cheaper than our top pick for Premium PC, maybe is  not an ideal choice if you’re on a tight budget. That being said, it is arguably value for money for this powerful PC that should run demanding games without issues. 

2. Acer Predator Orion 3000 – best budget choice

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3050


Intel Core i5-13400F





  • 1TB of storage
  • Affordable
  • Respectable GPU
  • Only 16GB of RAM
  • Made for 1080p

If you’re not in a position to spend a huge amount of money on the best gaming PC available, don’t worry, you can still get a decent PC that meets all the minimum system requirements for Palworld. The Acer Predator Orion comes with 16GB of RAM, which is the minimum amount of RAM required to run Palworld, alongside an available 1TB M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSD, which covers the 40GB of storage for the Palworld game file.

Palworld needs a CPU of at least Intel Core i5-3570K, which is covered by the Predator Orion which has an Intel Core i5-13400F. Palworld also requires a minimum GPU of GeForce GTX 1050 or later, and The Acer Predator comes with Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3050. The Acer also comes with Windows 11, so you don’t have to worry about needing a later OS or updating the pre-installed Windows to run Palworld. 

The reason this PC is our budget pick is because it can be bought on Amazon for around the $699 mark, which makes it a more budget-friendly option for a gaming PC capable of running a title like Palworld. 

3. Corsair Vengeance i8100 Series – best premium choice

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090


Intel Core i9-12900K





  • RTX 4090 GPU
  • 360mm AIO
  • Easy to upgrade
  • Older i9 CPU used
  • Expensive

Stocked with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU and an Intel Core i9-12900K, the Corsair Vengeance i8100 may be overkill for just casual gaming, but if you really want to up your gaming experience while you enjoy Palworld on early release, then the Vengeance promises up to date Nvidia Graphics, a hard disk storage size of up to 4TB and 64GB of DRAM.

This PC also features an all-in-one 360mm CPU cooler, to prevent your PC from overheating while you game and reduce any risks of thermal throttling. With DDR5 memory, the Corsair goes above and beyond Palworld’s recommended system requirements.  

However, as stated above, the Corsair Vengeance i8100 may be overkill for casual gaming and minimal, demanding workloads. So while it is high-powered with high graphics performances, it also comes with a big price tag that may not be ideal if you aren’t looking to spend a huge amount on your new PC. But if you have the budget, the Corsair Vengeance is currently selling on Amazon at around $4,400.

Honorable mention

Currently only available in the UK, CCL have released a new line-up of custom Palworld themed PCs that are not only pretty adorable in varying colors, but also match the recommended system requirements for Palworld for the best Palworld-gameplay. Available in yellow, orange, black and white, and currently prices at around £999 via CCL’s official store, the Horizon Pal series is definitely worth checking out for those who want a gaming PC that looks like your favorite Pal. As of right now, this line is not available in the US but we’re hoping it will be soon.
