Are you going to buy a Steambox?

It would be interesting just to use it for simple games like indie games but if it runs Linux since Gaben has a huge crush on Linux right now, I really think it will flop. PLEASE GABEN, DON'T MAKE THIS A LINUX PROPRIETARY DEVICE. IT WILL FLOP AND THE PC MASTER RACE WILL BE HUMILIATED :(

Then what do you want?

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

It's a glorified pre-built, so no.

No poll? Fail topic.

This thread is now about Pop Tarts vs. Toaster Strudels.

Depends on the price but I might consider it.

I can't create a poll and also I want to see the Steambox succeed and be a basis for developers of what type of hardware hardcore PC gamers use. If they are able to put a quad core and a gtx 770/ radeon 7950 equivalent card in there at an affordable price, I think pc gaming master race will get the recognition we deserve. If good hardware is put in the Steambox and developers have a basis of how they should create and optimize a game, we would see better graphics/frame rate/better optimization/etc. for newly releasing games and more PC exclusives.

a 7950 is not on par with a 770.

I personally don't want one. However, my wife seems kind of interested. So, maybe.

I know but its the 2nd to first flagship card with a number scheme from both sides that is a single GPU.
