    PC Gaming hardware market growing, aiming for $23Bn in 2012 and $32Bn by 2015

    A new report from Jon Peddie Research indicates that MMO's like EVE and WOW are driving PC Gaming hardware purchases worldwide, increasing spending and estimated to bring a 50% increase in PC Gamers in the next two years:

    Jon Peddie Research estimates there are 54 million Performance and Enthusiast class PC gamers worldwide, with new entrants and console converts bolstering this to 72 million by 2015.

    The recession is winding down and the Enthusiast and Performance class PC gamers (those who spend over $1000 on equipment) have spoken...with their wallets. With chips from AMD, Intel, and Nvidia, new machines from Alienware, HP, Lenovo and others, components and accessories from companies like ASUS, EVGA, Corsair, Logitech, and MadCatz, and new games in the pipe like Far Cry 3, BioShock Infinite, Crysis 3, ARMA 3, rFactor 2, and Interstellar Marines, the financial engine of the world's most elite gaming platform is fully fueled and will drive the global market to $32 billion by 2015.
