Gamers who invest time and money into their personal computer and use it as their main gaming platform with the graphic settings cranked up to maximum. Unlike the dirty console peasants, members of the glorious PC gaming master race have the freedom to upgrade their hardware, overclock, modify their game files, and play games at a level of quality unobtainable on consoles.

While anyone can go out and buy a powerful gaming computer which comes pre-assembled, many purists will argue that the money saved and experience gained from building a computer yourself is what actually makes someone a member of the PC master race.
Ryan: Did you hear Dave just built a $2,000 gaming computer?
Jeff: Yeah, he threw away his Xbox and has been playing Spreadsheet Simulator 3 for a week straight.
Ryan: He has truly become a member of the PC master race.

A facetious term used to claim the superiority of gamers who use personal computers, coined by comedian and video game critic Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw. Generally used to mock people who take the PC-console divide far too seriously.

Often contrasted against "dirty console peasants", an equally jocular term.
"Consoles are so much better than you PC nerds. You can like, hook them up to TVs instead of just monitors."

"Except you can totally do that. PC master race, buy an HDMI cable noob."

An extension to my previous post let me just give you a quick order on what I called the platform food chain
At the very bottom we got Mobile gaming* audiences few and filled with filthy casuals at the middle range we got the consoles which behaviors of console gamers will usually Becker amongst themselves on PS4 is better than Xbox Xbox is better than PS4 and the argument can go on and then we got the PC Master race the God of all gaming basically everything that a console gamers whether they be boy girl man woman PS4 fan or Xbox fan boy or girl can only dream of because they cannot see the whole power of what gaming could be if they just put in the time and effort to building their own PC because buying pre-built are for scrubs that just need to get good

I exclude Nintendo because they don't identify as either a console or mobile

In conclusion this is all a troll and you should not take any of this advise or anything you find on this site seriously

The term was coined satirically, but (un)surprisingly it's become a real circlejerk on Reddit.

A bunch of children who believe themselves to be incredibly intelligent and enlightened simply because they begged their parents to buy them a $1000 graphics card.
Building a PC is not mentally challenging and if you think it is, then you, my friend, are among the "peasants".

Common PC Master Race posts:

"DAE consoles suck?!??!?!!???!!!11!!one"

"muh gtx 1080!"

"Intel i7 or go home"

"I'm a virgin, but I have enough RAM to fuck multiple girls at once"

"I'll probably get mine watercooled"

"Is it strange that I jerk off to my graphics card?"
