PC Build Requirements - Each PC will be able to run all games at the lowest level
Recommended settings are higher than the minimum because professionals and high-end esports players need a significantly higher frame rate to achieve peak performance, this will also help with the nature of this course. Peripherals are also not included, but any combo of keyboard/gaming mouse will be fine. Whilst the course could be run using the Low Spec components, using the mid-tier or upper-tier will give the students a better experience, especially with regard to recording, streaming and video editing. As such the low spec should only be used if there is no possibility of the faster machines.
