Whats with people saying that gaming on PC’s is better than consoles? If you’re like the majority of people, you were raised on playing cheap computer games until finally, you got the new PlayStation, or Xbox that you had been asking for for a year. Then you forgot about the computer and focused on consoles.
However, a few years ago, I was introduced to the world of PC gaming and learned that you can create elaborate systems and engines tat would be far more difficult on a console. And, unlike with consoles, you can upgrade graphics cards, processing speed and display Naturally for a few months, i was desperate to upgrade my crappy-ass computer and turn it into a gaming machine. However while the possibility is there, it is an expensive aspiration at best.
See, gaming computers usually contain a powerful processor such as an i7. This, for example, costs between 300, and 700 dollars, and that’s just the CPU. Other things, such as high capacity hard drives, high end graphics cards and extra RAM memory are all pricey upgrades to make a gaming machine. Altogether, gaming computers const about $500-$3,000. A console like an Xbox or PS3 costs a fraction of that.
To the average person, a PS3 or Xbox does more than satisfy their gaming needs, and it’s relatively inexpensive. But for those people who need the giant leap into a world of virtual reality, a gaming computer would do the trick. Personally, I would greatly enjoy a nice gaming computer t fall back on when the consoles are just not doing it for me. but i prefer to remain in the triple digits when i buy a system. I’m anxious for opinions!
