Valve has released its Steam Hardware Survey results for December 2014, showing us which components most PC gamers are running.
While not every PC gamer plays through Steam, we can say with a degree of certainty that the results paint an accurate picture of what the average PC looks like.
Now, onto the important bit: does your PC beat the Steam average?
