Power wise - what PC set up would be equivalent to ps4/xbox one?

#1jmf1Posted 6/15/2014 5:47:35 PM
And how much money would it cost to have a PC that is comparable or better to one of these systems. Im just curious with alot of people on these boards saying that their PC runs games better than ps4/xbox one, if you have to have a high-end PC. Ive always been a console gamer myself but would like to hear from the people on here that also play on their PCs.

Probably an Nvidia GTX 600 series which I believe run about $150-$200 nowadays. Can skimp on the rest of the parts. Really couldn't quote you on anything since I buy the high-end stuff when it comes out.

My mid range pc cost $700 without os, monitor, k/b and mouse a year ago. Probably still better than both consoles though.

For a PS4, a PC equivalent should be somewhere in the area of one of the current lower end i5 CPUs, 6GB of system RAM, and a Radeon R9 270 graphics card. Cost-wise it should be somewhere between $500 and $600 for the hardware. The Xbox One would be slightly less since the graphics card wouldn't need to be as powerful, could probably lower it down to an Radeon R7 260 and drop $50 or so off the cost.

The Valve Steam Box should be close or better than the Xbox One and Playstation 4 in term of graphic/power. Valve did mention different version of the Steam Box are coming out with different models with low and high-end specs.

I see no point, spend as much as you can on a PC. You'll be forced to upgrade at some point or live with med or 30fps.

lol keep thinking that.

To play at max settings maybe, but PC max settings are beyond what your consoles can do.
If PC players had to keep playing with console settings (you know, 900p, 30 fps?), they wouldn't need to upgrade for 5 to 7 years minimum.

Keep that hole closed when you have no clue what you're talking about.

starting from scratch w/o anything, not even a case? probably around $700 or so if you want some decent okay parts. it might be cheaper if you went real cheap.

I agree with him. If you are going to do something do it right. Why half ass it. If you're going to invest in a gaming rig don't go cheap and crappy.
