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

Good Luck trying to find 8 gb GDDR5 ram on a pc.


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


Of course. gddr5 memory doesnt exist in the pc world afterall. I was just mocking the TC that creating a computer with just $400 that can beat the ps4 is impossible

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


Nothing to do with a steeper discount when they have discounts like that.

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


Literally nothing in this topic is me throwing a fit. And "most" of it...what's my post count up to? Like 5 times in this whole topic all responding to your pointless drivel that attempted to start arguing %'s of discounts on hypothetical Newegg combos.

Because the higher combo's have a slightly higher discount


Your words. You wanted a steeper discount with no benefit to the retailer, so you threw a massive tizzy over the rational explanation of why that's not reasonable.

How is selling an additional part that someone may otherwise not purchase from the same place, not a benefit to the retailer? Especially when that same build can be had for the same total price if you buy the extra part(s) individually with promos?

And please, PLEASE, show me where I threw a massive tizzy. I'd love even just one quote that indicates so.

Comparing the two is ignorant and pathetic.

PC newbies think that because the PS4 is x86 based, they can just compare numbers.
