I know these is a pretty weird thing, but most the people on here are some of nicest folk I’ve met, and recently I have begun considering selling my consoles in favor of a pc, because personally I’m tired of most of their limitations and the whole xbox Scorpio and ps4.5 isn’t very exciting considering how expensive things on console are getting.
So I’m just looking at MAYBE getting a $500-$600 pc, I’m actually pretty interested in a Alienware alpha, but I’ve heard things about getting the more expensive models at much cheaper prices, but I’m not so sure if it’s the real deal or a scam.Just browsing atm, feel free to suggest something you think is good out of experience, or just out of computer smarts, because I have 0 knowledge about computer specs/builds.
I definitely wouldn’t be getting a pc just for gaming for sure my current pc is a brick, and was a overpriced office computer the guy selling it insisted was a “gaming computer” that I bought when i was naive.Other then that I am just tired of the console market itself, although many people would probably say I’m just desperate to play stage 2 (which i do) I do already have a decent steam library.
You will have all the ignorant people in the world telling you “bla! a $400 PC can crash a console” etc etc, but being 500% realistic here, a $500-$600 pre-build PC is not gonna get your a PC to play games nearly as good as PS4, if you go DIY, it can get close but not quite, even though this PC will get out matched very quickly before you know it. like other poster said, I would keep your console if I were you.
Just being realistic here, go with gaming PC is a very expensive habit, you will need to have a budget for it. upgrade isn’t just strick to video card or CPU, I built my whole rig for $2000 and I expect to upgrade my video card every 2-3 years and CPU every 4-6 years along with other components. if you think 3 years & $300 upgrade is too much, then console will ended up being a better choice.
Sorry if I sound negative here, but I tried to give you a 200% realistic picture without fanboy-ism involved to help you make your decision. But on the bright side, keep in mind that with the recent new AMD/Nvidia GPU’s mid range GPU launch, if you go with DYI(Do it yourself) you can probably get a rig at least plays evolve far better than your console. But it will likely require another GPU upgrade once new console launches.
A quality mid-range computer at the sub 600 dollar range. This is where builds start to demonstrate console obsolescence. Will meet the requirement for the Oculus Rift if you swap out the gpu for a R9-390.
