Is it possible to build a computer from scratch that will outperform PS4 @ $400?

all 660<PS4

you need a ti that's 750 or 760 to be better
cpus that are 6300 fx or i3 have slower fsb to cpu as well as large header files like ps4.

PS4 has 176GB/s at 5500Mhz

The base clock which is used as FSB for CPU is 100MHz with a 10 multiplier

My CPUs in my sig are two at 1333MHz

Since PS4 is using GDDR5 it's hrtz slows to 1.5/2.5 GHz for operations like writing just check Wikipedia(GDDR5)

You honestly have no clue what you're talking about and I feel bad for anyone that takes your advice.

And now you're back to using random terms you don't understand.

ivy and fx 100Mhz BCLK
look it up
PS4 5500Mhz at best 1500-2500 for certain operations
Wikipedia(GDDR5)

My PC 6 sticks of DDR2 667MHz*6=4000Mhz slowed down by dual bus max 1600Mhz but CPU only allows 1333MHz so it comes down to 2666Mhz

So why not buy the $300 combo and add the GPU? Why does it need to be a combo if that's all you want?
Not that a 650Ti competes with PS4 at all.

And if you "don't give a s***", why throw a big fit about it?


1. Because the higher combo's have a slightly higher discount, so it would make more sense to include a GPU and knock off $10-20 additional, like they do with the other combos in that price-range to sell them. Obviously, ME personally, I'd rather just pick out my own parts with promos/deals individually...although some of the combos are tempting.

2. Not saying it does or doesn't compete with the PS4, but I'd actually like to see actual comparisons between a 650ti or 260X vs a PS4 at the same resolution and settings.

3. I didn't throw a big fit about it. Can you read? Originally I gave a couple simple replies but you didn't seem to get a clue and took the conversation to other places. Yeah, I should just ignore you but I just don't do that around here for some reason (probably a personal problem, you're right Cloud).

That's probably some social disorder you have or personal problem, though. So I don't know why I bother replying.


Wow, flinging personal insults. You surely know how to get ahead in an argument. You probably bother responding because it's some social disorder where you have to have the last word.


That's not really an insult. If someone has an issue with a simple and sensible agreement to the point someone is making, and they're incapable of ever doing so, it's a personal problem or social disorder. That's not an insult, it's a fact and assessment. For ex: Calling someone that is lying a liar, is not an insult, it's a fact and assessment of what they're doing. Note: I even said "probably."

And I don't need the last word, I just prefer correctness and understanding, over dodging the point and arguing other s*** nobody was saying to begin with.

So, in other words, you want more money/a steeper discount, and can't accept the explanation of why that's not reasonable.

Comparisons of PS4/Xbone and PC hardware exist already. Direct comparisons are unnecessary, as the relative comparisons of the parts compared are available as well.

Most of this topic is you throwing a big fit about it, actually.

If you want to look smart, you should probably make sure you actually know what the words you're using are.
