How can 720\ps4 beat wii u when ppl think $350 is too much for a console?

you can gloat all you like about your $1,000 PC.

I had to upgrade from a pc worth about $1,000 a few years ago to something that could actually do what the old simply couldn't handle.

It's nice you can make a PC for $1,000 but does that include coupons,close outs, deals, and extreme penny pinching as well?

I'm near certain it does.


Can make a PC for $500 that's still ahead of current projections for "next-gen".

Then you absolutely suck at building PCs, or hell, even shopping for them. In fact every post of yours I've seen seems to indicate that you essentially know nothing about PC hardware and are just throwing money at it aimlessly and then assuming everyone must do the same thing. Alright, I'll give you a secret deal on how to get a PC for less than $1000 that's more than capable of playing games at excellent settings and framerates. Are you ready for these super complex instructions that involves close outs and coupons? Alright, here we go...

Man, that was tough! It's like doing freaking trigonometry here! Of course you could probably build something similar yourself for $200-$300 less, but clearly you'd need to be a rocket scientist for that!

1: knightimex doesn't actually own a PC. He just pretends to. That's why he doesn't know anything about it.
2: No. iBuyPower is garbage. That's not a bad PC for the price mostly, but before turning it on, I'd have to replace the power supply to not be worried about it starting a fire, at the very least.

hmm spybox 720, ps4 made by a company going out of business, or the wii u - such a hard choice.

Maybe I don't mind being a douche, and paying full price for something that's worth it?
As opposed to being a douche, and trying to rip off the makers any way possible.

Buy that statement I assume you would NEVER buy direct from a place like Nvidia.com now would you?

Yea I didn't think so either.

...?
You don't buy videocards from nVidia.com. They didn't even manufacture boards until the GTX460.
Also, that doesn't explain the price. It's pretty clear you've just been making **** up at this point.

nVidia even links to retailers in their store. They don't sell directly at all, I don't think.

You can still go to nvidia and purchase a card.
if they link you else where is something I can't confirm.

It's not like Nvidia's all like.
