Anyone recommend an Xbone crusher PC build for $499?

Looking to help a friend out, and that is the budget he has - $500.

Also, I'm curious as to exactly how powerful the GPU is on this A10 7850k?

Does the integrated graphics on that chip beat the Xbones GPU? Is that a good bargain? For $500, you gotta cut somewhere.

xbone crusher build for that.

You can probably buy a nice sledge hammer, that should crush the xbone.

You could slightly overpower an xbone for that, but not crush it.

Although any viable gaming PC will crush any console in terms of game library, options and platform functionality. But power wise, it would cost a little more.

Nope.

Yep.

The 7850k has about half as many GCN cores as the 7850, the PS4 is roughly equivalent to a 7850, the xbone is a bit weaker. So that on its own won't really cut it if that's what you're after.

Yep.


Then I'm better off doing a $100 CPU and a $200 GPU. I was thinking I could MAYBE save $100 if that APU had a decent GPU.

There you go. I wouldn't say it crushes the xbone but it handily beats it and the ps4 as well. Steam Machines haven't been released yet though. I don't know what his timetable is.

This build has been floating around a while. It used to be about a $100 cheaper but some prices went up. Needs an OS though (price not included in build. he may have a windows key already he can use). Still handily beats both consoles.

Can someone explain why prices aren't dropping on some of the Intel chips from 2 gens ago? I figured I could find an I5 2500k for under $150, you know, because they're old?

Because they are still some of the most powerful chips on the market.
