Updated on June 6, 2014

Watch Dogs is now viral on the Internet World.This game has released for PC recently.It is an open world action adventure game like GTA 5 published by Ubisoft.In this game,the entire arena is inspired from the city of Chicago.You can find an image beside this paragraph which shows difference between the real Chicago and Virtual Chicago in Watch Dogs.Watch dogs has that high graphics that even you may get confused about which is the real image of Chicago.That's why,i have mentioned the real and "in game" photos in the picture.

Sometimes,it even seems that Watch dogs graphics are better than the real world.That's why this game is often called as "MOTHER OF GRAPHICS".In this game,you have to take the role of a computer Hacker who can hack every electronic device using his smart phone which is carried by him all the time.This game has been released for Windows,MAA,PS4,PS3,XBOX and even Wii on 27th May 2014.Since this game has high graphics,many of your Computer may not run this game.Some of your PC's may run this game,but with irritating Lag.As a gamer,i too know that getting killed will not irritate the gamer,but LAG does.That's why,i have took a decision and made enough search to find best processors for Watch dogs to play on PC without LAG.These all are budget processors for a given range.But,before going to best processors for watch dogs,first have a look at the Gameplay,screenshots and PC requirements of Watch dogs.

After having a look at the PC requirements,many of your computers may not have met the minimum requirements.Also note that,the requirements given above are just minimum.If you play watch dogs with minimum requirements,then you may not play with ultra settings and even Lag irritates you when you do multiple tasks on your computer while playing Watch dogs.So,i have decided not to show processors that meet minimum requirements but to show processors that meet recommended requirements of Watch dogs.I have given processors for every range of budget.So,have a look at them now.
