geekbenchmark for the cpu higher than the fx 8150.

Awful.

Best piece is the GPU, other than that..no.

why not it has 6*1GB ram at 800Mhz=3*2GB at 1600MHz right
Sata 1 Harddrive was the one compromise but the gpu has bandwidth and is much stronger than PS4.
CPU is no slouch just check geekbench.

If you're so confident in that build then go ahead and buy it. What's the point of the topic?

How many topic are you going to make about this? Don't have something better to do with your time?
Just curious what are you trying to prove? The whole pc vs ps4 has been beaten to death with PC offering the better bang for buck.

before I could only manage 450$ PCs with some research I brought it down.

You're not very good at this, are you? Heck, your motherboard won't even fit in your case and only supports up to PCIe x4. Plus, the motherboard only supports ECC registered RAM and that's not what you have selected.

I wasn't sure about that what case will it fit in. I fixed the ram.

Rofl. It will be MUCH easier to do this in about 1 year. The PS4 will probably still be $400 retail, and you'll be able to build a PC by them for under that easily that can beat it.

Also, nobody says you have to use retail prices, because Sony definitely didn't pay retail prices on the components for the PS4 that cost them $381 to make.

This means being able to pick up a CPU like an I5 2500k for example, for $70-80 used, and the guy throws the old MB (which is actually decent) in for another $50. If you got an I5 2500k and some sort of P67 or Z68 board with it, then that is very much a decent foundation for building something cheap that would destroy the PS4. There are a lot of freaks who upgrade their PCs sometimes 2-3x a year, and they bargain bin their old components.
