No GDDR5 ram only DDR3, no on board Bluetooth and wifi, no Bluray Drive. You didn't come close to matching the PS4...

Even if you try to equate the ram (which sorry you can't) That brings the price up to 437.00 not including tax or shipping (choosing the cheapest parts). That's also giving you Linux vs Win 7.

Ooops wait we're not done PS4 Has USB 3.0 this mobo doesn't. Which with the cheapest supported mobo brings it up to 459.00 not including tax and shipping.

The PS4 doesn't let you play mp3's either.

I don't see what any of these things have to do with gaming though.


Will be patched in, 0/1 wanna try again?


So it's not a feature yet.

I think you're missing the point though.

You can play far, far far far more games with Linux than you can play on a PS4.


This is quite true as well.
Consoles are just terribly overpriced. PS4 is even super cheaply made, and seems to have something like a 30-40% DOA rate.


This is what happens when you let westerners buy up most of your stock. Not only do you get poorly constructed things, but you get to slap the entire consumerbase that made you relevant and successful for over a decade. YAAAAAYYYYY SONY


Germany needs to get into the console market. You know the Germans always make good stuff.


They make good engines. They tend to have terrible electronics. Remember about 10 years ago when all the VW and Audi coil packs on the engine were catching on fire?

$20 PSU... nope. You still have $24 left, buy a better PSU.


The CX430 is a great unit, but please try again.

Pretty nice build, but like others said:
-No Blu-Ray drive (and software to play Blu-Ray movies is extra as well; digital distribution is fine and all, but not every movie is available digitally yet, or even on Blu-Ray)
-No Bluetooth/Wifi (blah blah wired is better, but wireless can be handy)
-No OS (sure there's linux + wine, but it's not going to be 100% like just running it on Windows instead)
-No keyboard/mouse (...kind of essential)

IMO, if I didn't have any computer or console at all, I'd probably just get a mid-range laptop that isn't too big. Pay a little premium in the end, but then you can take it anywhere - including to a friend's house to hook up to a TV and play games or something.

Ew! Hitachi HDD?
Say goodbye to your data.


Hitachi is quite a reliable brand. They're owned by WD now, but I can't imagine they're any worse.
I've used a few hitachi drives and not a single one has had so much as a hitch, which I can't say for the SeaGate or WDCG I got.

Also, wow, this topic exploded with peasants out of nowhere.
"No GDDR5 RAM"? lol
